Longfellow Hotel recently began welcoming guests. The 48-room boutique hotel comes from Maine-based, family-owned hospitality group Uncommon Hospitality. Award-winning design studio Post Company is behind the hotel’s design. The property marks the first independent, full-service hotel opening in Portland in more than two decades.

“We’re thrilled to finally welcome guests to The Longfellow, a project that we’ve lovingly infused with Portland’s proud, independent spirit, and the entrepreneurial ethos of our surrounding neighborhood,” said Tony DeLois, co-founder and COO, Uncommon Hospitality.

The hotel is named after poet and Portland native Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Post Company imbues the design with Portland and New England charm, honoring traditional architecture and highlighting works from local artists.

“Our design for The Longfellow honors the city’s history and wild beauty, and also nods to the integrity of the surrounding buildings,” said Jou-Yie Chou, partner, Post Company. “The interiors feel familiar, yet impart a true sense of place, by blending contemporary elements with traditional touches to evoke a modern timelessness. The design establishes a sequence of spaces that invites visitors in, while handsome details encourage them to linger and indulge.”
