The Danforth has a very nice atmosphere. Great staff who attended to our needs and answered our questions. Clean, with personalized breakfast menu at no additional cost. Centrally located to everything. I totally recommend it!

Like going back in time to simpler living, but luxurious nonetheless and where service came with a capital S. The perfect antidote to savoring Portland. You can easily see what this former mansion was the address of a noted sea captain.

About
Description
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 ...More 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. Less

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.
