Inn by the Sea announced that it is slated to add 10 new luxury one- and two-bedroom suites, with the properties opening in June 2012.
The details of the new suites include traditional solid teak and wicker furnishings paired with glass, natural wood or hemp. A palette of burnt red, taupe and grey with flashes of turquoise reflect the Inn's coastal attitude. Also featured are artworks depicting Portland's maritime history with images of Maine's lighthouses, sailing ships from the golden Clipper age, and local harbor scenes.
The suites feature separate king bedrooms, living areas with seating around cozy gas fireplaces, dining tables, fully equipped kitchens, bathrooms with marble counters and oversized tubs, and private, furnished outdoor patios. Fireplaces in the two bedroom suites can be enjoyed both inside and al fresco on the deck. Suite amenities include flat screen TVs, iPod docking stations, complimentary Internet, and L'Occitane bath products. Guests will be able to connect two one-bedroom suites on the lower level, or two bedroom suites can be opened up to create three or four bedroom units.
The construction of the new suites at Inn by the Sea reunites TFH Architects, the Portland firm that originally designed the property, with the Moncur Design Associates Inc. The transformation of Inn by the Sea began in 2008 after a multi-million dollar makeover of the main inn, followed by addition of 10 new direct ocean view suites in 2012.
Inn by the Sea is located on Crescent Beach in the coastal town of Cape Elizabeth, minutes from Portland's Old Port. It was selected one of Tripadvisor's Top Ten Green hotels worldwide, and one of Travel & Leisure's Best 500 Hotels in the World in 2011.
