The Press Hotel, Marriott Autograph Collection

Portland, ME
#10 in Best Maine Hotels

Arguably the best place to kick back and read a newspaper, this boutique hotel (which opened in May 2015) draws design inspiration from the newsroom that used to occupy the property. Each of the hotel's 110 guest rooms features decor inspired by a 1920s-era writer's office, including a vintage desk and reeded glass doors. But just because this hotel nods to the past doesn't mean it's taking a step back from the future. Marble bathrooms, minifridges, flat-screen TVs, and coffee makers come standard in all accommodations, plus there's a fitness center and bike rentals are available on-site. The hotel's location in the artsy Old Port District of Portland, Maine, seems to rub off on UNION restaurant, which utilizes farm-to-table techniques to create modern, artisan dishes. Recent guests were charmed by the quirky decor of the property and applauded the superb service of the entire hotel staff. Many travelers strongly suggested taking advantage of the complimentary bikes, noting it's the best way to explore the surrounding Old Port District. more
