St. John's in Portland, ME
Posted Sep 28, 2016
Very cool turn-of-the-century hotel in the heart of downtown Portland. Albeit, the layout of the hotel is bizarre, to say the least. I'm not sure why it was designed in this manner (I heard stories from some locals there that this place was a brothel at some point, and perhaps it was intentional) but there is a labyrinth of stairs, landings, and puzzles to get to your room unless you happen to luck out and get one on the ground floor (which I would suggest if they are available). In any case, the place has lots of history, free hot chocolate, cookies, and breakfast. What else do you really need? Oh, and there is a cool little bar next door (Salty Sally's) that has a really good happy hour every day of the week, so if you are there definitely stop by!
