Incredible beds and wonderful showers!

I love the originality of the interior design of this property. It is so refreshing, and makes you feel like you are in a really special place. The fact they incorporated the buildings history of being where the old Portland newspaper was written is a wonderful tribute to its past. The staff is very friendly and accommodating, and I love the fact you can easily walk to Old Port from this location. Great access to lots of shops and restaurants too!

Really unique and wonderful place

We were only in Portland for one day before moving on, but we were so glad we chose The Press Hotel. From the unique lettering outside, this hotel (which used to be a massive publishing house), to the decor inside, to the letters in the carpeting, to the unique quotes on chairs and walls, this place really has a cool vibe.

The staff is exceptional. The front desk folks were awesome and very knowledgeable about the area.

We asked for extra pillows and had them in our room within minutes.

The room was nice apportioned and the flat screen tv built into the wall decor made it seem more a piece of art than a normal tv. The bed was very comfortable.

If we make our way back to Portland, we will definitely stay here!

Best place to stay in Portland, Maine

The Press Hotel in Portland is a fantastic hotel and the only place to stay in Portland, Maine. It is located in an ideal spot - two blocks from the bustling downtown shopping area. Marriott properties in the US have seemed to be on a decline in recent years moving from a focus on service and luxury (e.g., eliminating room service or merely providing paper bags with plastic containers) but this particular hotel has maintained all of the grace and elegance of classic luxury. The ambiance is unique and great, like many other of the Autograph properties. I loved the fact that there are old-fashioned typewriters on the walls and the idea of a once busy press room seems to permeate the hotel. The staff is unbelievably attentive and helpful -- from the valet to front desk to waiters in the restaurant. This is the kind of hotel that would be worth a weekend trip even if one lived in Portland!

Great original hotel, my wife and I are fans of the autograph hotels by Marriot. The staff, were excellent, room upgrade and a couple of glasses of bubbly. The interior is unique. Definitely worth a visit.

I'm a new fan of this amazing hotel and city!

Visited Portland and was fortunate enough to stay at the Press Hotel. From the valet team to check in to the wonderful ladies for turn down service I was treated like a rock star. The management must be great because everyone I encountered was so incredibly kind and friendly. You cannot beat this location. I will stay here the next time I'm in Portland.
