The Press Hotel captures the indefinable essence of Portland, Maine, providing an approachable unique and utterly memorable full-service boutique experience that is truly Beyond Words. Built in 1923 as the More offices for the Portland Press Herald, our hotel takes inspiration from the writer's offices of that era: each of the hotel's exquisite 110 guest rooms and suites feature a vintage-styled journalist desk, wood floors with herringbone area rug, and the work of local artists and artisans. The historic building boasts oversized windows in every guestroom, providing natural light and fresh Maine air during your stay. Playful newsroom references abound, including thought-provoking quotes and occasional one-liners in the most unexpected places. The hotel also hosts two utterly unique spots for food and drink. The restaurant UNION is Portland's newest farm-to-table (and sea-to-table) hotspot, with creative takes on recognizable "Americana" favorites from coast to coast. Inkwell Bar echoes the energy and intellect of its former occupants, with serving hand-crafted vintage cocktails, Portland microbrews and small plates in our lobby space (the former City Room of the Press Herald.) The hotel also features four meeting and event spaces ranging in size from 300 to 1,170 square feet, conjuring images of the spirited editorial meetings that once took place in this historic building, At the base of a dramatic open staircase that descends from the lobby, these spaces resemble private residential libraries and are ideal for executive retreats, small business meetings, board meetings, weddings and social functions. A unique Art Gallery featuring works by local artists is a perfect location for a reception event. Less

Hello! There are two flights of stairs leading up to the penthouse. I would say approximately 15-20 steps total. It is the most beautiful spot for a wedding! We look forward to having you with us! Best, Ginny
