After two-and-a-half years of border closures, in 2023, nearly every country in the world will be open for tourists again. So it’s no surprise that a whole new group of hotels will be too, from adventurous river lodges in Bhutan, to aristocratic mansions in Munich, to sprawling eco-resorts in the Caribbean.
Longfellow Hotel, Portland, Maine (Summer 2023)
Post Company, whose previous projects include Inness and the Lake House on Canandaigua, was inspired by both Portland’s historic West End architecture as well as Maine’s rugged eastern coastline when designing the new Longfellow Hotel. Think hardwood floors mixed with lime-washed walls, intricate mosaic tile flooring, pine accents and an appropriate amount of navy. In addition to its 48 guest rooms, there will be a Nordic-inspired spa and a yet-to-be-announced restaurant from Portland-based purveyors.
