The Danforth is the grande dame of the Portland, Maine boutique hotel scene. Built in the 1800's, extensive renovations to design and (mostly) new bathrooms have married historic gentility with classic but contemporary stylings. Basement billiard room, a widow's walk with views, three course breakfasts - who could ask for more? A recent review called The Danforth an historic mansion with a hip vibe.

They told us it would be open around July 1, so recommend you reach out to them. They were in full construction mode when we were there.

We recently stayed at The Danforth and one of the reasons we did was that you could see each room on line and read a description. Our room matched exactly what we had read. The website is very accurate and the hotel staff... More
