Fathom Companies and Hilton’s lifestyle brand Canopy by Hilton will open Canopy by Hilton Portland Waterfront in the spring of 2021. Located on the corner of Center and Commercial Streets in Portland, Maine’s Old Port neighborhood, the 135-room hotel will be situated on one of the last remaining buildable lots. The property will also be home to an indoor/outdoor rooftop bar and restaurant overlooking Casco Bay, a first for the New England coastal city.

Fathom Companies will develop and manage the property. The development firm is in the approval process with the city, Historic Preservation Board and Planning Board and anticipates approvals in the second quarter 2019 with a fall construction groundbreaking and spring 2021 opening.

The Canopy by Hilton Portland Waterfront will have 135 rooms. The design team includes interior design firm Ealain Studios, which designed the space with local touchpoints. Amenities will include mobile check-in and complimentary Wi-Fi, and on arrival, guests will receive a welcome gift inspired by the Old Port neighborhood.
