We stayed at the Danforth for a get-away weekend in Portland and it was perfect. The rooms are beautiful and so comfortable. The public spaces (dining room and bar and sitting area) are beautifully designed. The art is fascinating and it is a pleasure to be in the hotel. We could not recommend this hotel more highly. The team was also so friendly and helpful.

The Danforth is a wonderful place to stay in Portland. The lounge and bar is relaxing and beautiful. Matt the bartender created excellent cocktails and mocktails. The breakfast is delicious. The Rijsttafel dinner is best described as Indonesian dim sum - flavorful, exotic and delicious. The location is perfect - away from the bustle of old port, but a short walk to the Portland Art Museum, the movie theater and the Old Port section with its boutiques and restaurants. We were so pleased with the friendliness and professionalism of the staff and are looking forward to a return visit to a great boutique inn.

We had planned an overnight en route from Maine to Boston ( in part to reschedule a previously planned getaway for which a conflict arose) and due to the blizzard determined to stay another day and night. It was so incredibly restorative! I have never had such an attentive staff. They even periodically cleaned snow off our car- above and beyond. They kept the Inn fully functional. We had a dura flame log in our room fireplace, enjoyed curling up with a book in the beautiful lounge. Two nights at Temple Dulu- the food, wine and SERVICE were perfection.
Also I must add I am Generally not a fan of new “ hip” decor- too white, or worse gray, and slate . However the very upscale and beautifully executed interiors in all areas of the Inn were delightful - not the least the live moss lamp shade gaming over the center of the federal entry hall.

The blizzard made it so insular and cozy and the Inn truly rise to the occasion. Finally although dinner is expensive it was a great value. Cannot wait to return. Location is amazing when Town is open.

I loved the Danforth! I loved the artsy atmosphere and the personal touches like the fresh flowers being in our room and the beautiful, chic, but classic decorating. I won't stay anywhere else when I go back to Portland!

Came here to check out the bar while we were staying in town to celebrate the new year. The bartender Alexa was not only a talented mixologist but also a consummate hostess. She invited us to come back to celebrate at their NYE party. We decided to take her up on it and were treated to a really wonderful experience! We were not guests at the hotel but were treated like VIPs the whole night! The owners were there handing out champagne and some amuse bouche. We rang in the new year with several of their guests and the fun DJ and then spent several more hours in the basement billiard room! The staff never kicked us out or asked us to leave, even after they had closed the bar and were cleaning up. We even had the pleasure of seeing one of the owners pups! Such a great group of people! I can’t vouch for the rooms but I can’t imagine anyone having anything other than a fantastic experience here!!!!! Do yourself a favor and stay here if you are looking for a place in Portland!
