49 Neal St., Portland, ME 04102 , United States

Just minutes from Portland's scenic Old Port in the Western Promenade neighborhood—renowned for its stately mid-19th-century homes designed by New England architect John Calvin Stevens—this stylish inn stands out from the city's more fusty accommodations. Owner Kim Swan took over 1884 Italianate in 2007, and has preserved the original owner's colorful mélange of floral wallpapers, Chinese figurines, and antique conversation pieces; the modern accents—Noguchi coffee tables and contemporary art—are an especially welcome breath of fresh air. Not surprisingly, each of the eight guest rooms has a personality of its own, but expect fine silk and matelassé linens, period antiques, private baths, and cut blooms in all. Most have gas fireplaces. Common rooms are equally as dramatic—the foyer is checkered with large black and white marble tiles, and the parlor is perfectly positioned to capture the morning sun, as well as being an ideal place to savor a breakfast of Maine blueberry pancakes. In the afternoon, the inn serves a real-deal Irish tea, which guests can enjoy fireside in winter or in the property's hidden city garden in warm weather.
