This boutique hotel has a high-design, industrial-chic feel that calls to mind urban condos—which is just what the building was initially intended to be, although it eventually became a hotel for lack of demand. The developer’s loss is travelers’ gain. Running with Rockland’s revived identity as an arts destination, the hotel hasn’t found a wall that it couldn’t decorate with local art, from crisp landscape photography to watercolors to reimagined 1950s tourism propaganda—there’s even artist-designed wallpaper. Rooms are individually designed/decorated, and both they and the common areas are filled with midcentury modern furniture in bright colors and lots of showy reclaimed wood. If none of that is mod enough for you, each room has a complimentary concierge tablet to play around on. On a summer evening, the rooftop deck overlooking the harbor is a pretty unbeatable place to unwind (and they pour wine up there).
