Portland is a really fun city. Stay in Old Port. There are a bunch of brand new hotels right by the pier: Hilton Garden, Hampton, Courtyard. I recommend those.
There's also a very nice slightly pricier hotel that occupies the old armory, also just a few steps away from the pier.
Then there's the rather prominent Holiday Inn that's been there a few decades and hosts many major events--including the victory celebration last November. But unless you're attending an event at the stadium, I recommend staying in Old Port.
Old Port is very walkable and has a great variety of bars, antique and artisan shops, restaurants, and--my personal favorite--micro breweries. Styx is nearby, but Blackstones--which will appeal to mature travelers--is a bit of a hike.
Portland is a fun, smaller city. It has a lot to offer recreationally and culturally, without overwhelming the visitor. I definitely recommend a stop in Vacationland.

Have you ever vacationed in Uganda? I recommend you go there immediately.

As a resident of Portland I agree with everything you've said. I would also mention a few additional do not miss stops. The Portland Observatory and the Eastern Promenade for their unsurpassed views. Back Bay Trail for walking and running. Portland Museum of Art for 1st class art and special shows. 1st Friday of each month there is a very well attended art walk on Congress Street where a good night will put thousands of people and activities on the street. And don't miss Otto Pizza with two locations on Congress St (Try the mashed potato, scallion and bacon!).

You should visit Iraq, there are people there, they're all living caves of course, who believe the same things you do.

Just checking in, to see the general intelligence of the true American Yankee.So far, all I know is that Uganda is the new vacation hotspot.
