A New Hotel in an Old Newspaper HQ

None 4 Photos The Press Hotel
There’s a seven-story hotel themed entirely around newspapers.

Wait, that wasn’t right.


Ah, that’s better.

Turn to page 2 for The Press Hotel, 110 rooms’ worth of lodging excellence located in an old newspaper office, now taking reservations for an end-of-April opening in Portland, Maine. (Here’s the slideshow.)

This just in...

The Portland Press Herald used to live here.
The structure was built in 1923 and served as the paper’s headquarters for a while. Now it’s your turn.

That newspaper theme is pretty obvious.
It starts with the wall-size replica letterpress in the lobby...

... and continues into your room.
Hence the writer’s desk and leather office chair bearing the words “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.” It’s a typing thing. Classic.

Your shellfish needs will be attended to.
At M.C. Union, their restaurant from the James Beard Award–winning duo behind M.C. Spiedo. They love their M.C.s.

As will your liquid ones.
Via Inkwell, the lobby’s classic cocktail bar. Journalism and drinking and all that.

There’s a Presidential Suite.
And it has a private rooftop patio with 360-degree views of the city skyline.

“Skyline” might be a stretch.
