Situated adjacent to Portland’s busy bar scene on the corner of Fore and Union streets, this semicircular townhouselike structure—designed to fit in with the brick facades prevailing in the Old Port—appeals to the boutique crowd with its modern amenities. The interior courtyard throws off European ambience; large rooms are furnished with queen- and king-size beds and spacious work desks. Even the standard rooms are outfitted with armoires; duvets and down coverlets; deep bathtubs in granite-faced bathrooms; two-line phones; and big TVs. Deluxe rooms and suites add Jacuzzis and sitting areas, and some units look out onto a central garden area. The house restaurant, Eve’s at the Garden, has a great patio in the summertime.
