This Portland Hotel Was Featured in Architectural Digest
The Press Hotel in Portland recently made an article in Architectural Digest featuring a collection of chic hotels located inside former newsrooms.
The Press Hotel sits among 6 other revamped newsrooms across the world, including The Eliza Jane in New Orleans, Hotel Jerome in Aspen, CO, The Scotsman Hotel in Scotland, and more.
The blurb on the Press Hotel touches on the process of redecorating the interior to honor the building's rich journalistic history:
The Portland Press Herald never folded like the building’s new Frette linens—it simply moved in 2010, allowing the original 1923 tapestry brick and stone building to start a new chapter as the Press Hotel. Branding itself Portland’s first-ever boutique hotel, designers were on the nose with history throughout 110 guest rooms, each featuring a proper writing desk. The former city room is now the Inkwell Bar, too, and the newspaper’s editors helped select historic headlines for the hallway wallpaper (read, and sleep, between the lines).
Nestled downtown squarely between Market and Exchange streets just off Congress, The Press Hotel makes for the perfect Portland staycation. With its own Inkwell Bar and Union Hotel attached to the hotel, you theoretically wouldn't even need to leave the premises to have an all-inclusive stay. Keep an eye out for the subtle homages to journalism, like the typeface collage below.
