Press Hotel
Hyperlocalism has fueled Portland’s Old Port District revitalization, with buzzy restaurants and shops opening in recent years with a deep sense of place. The stylish Press Hotel, which debuted in 2015, is no exception. A publishing motif runs throughout the 110-room property, which occupies a corner building that once housed the Portland Press Herald. Custom-made wallpaper printed with old headlines lines the corridors, and desks inspired by those found in 1920s newsrooms can be found in each room. Artwork by local artists—including a dramatic installation of vintage typewriters from the late 19th and early 20th centuries by Portland artist Erin Hutton—and woven-wall tapestries by Portland home-goods designer Angela Adams also abound. (There are also a few notable—and welcome—nods to the global luxury market, including Frette linens from Italy atop the plush beds.) The focus at the 65-seat hotel restaurant, Union, is proudly farm and sea to table, with dishes like house-smoked local mussels served with celery cream.
