The Francis, by Wright-Ryan

Located in Portland’s West End neighborhood, The Francis brings the best of Maine to a single space. Relaxing in the hotel’s spa, sitting down for dinner and a cocktail in the attached restaurant, or simply enjoying a night in the luxury accommodations will provide guests with an intimate Portland experience.

The 15-room, 12,500 square-foot boutique hotel was a complete renovation of a historic building that required unique attention to the high-end finishes as well as the preservation of other historic interior details. Relocating an elevator in an existing historic structure required intricate planning and execution.
