Hotel Portland

Hotel Portland, a 148 room full service boutique brand hotel with restaurant, bar, and more, part of the tribute by Marriott portfolio.

Hotel Portland’s thoughtful design is intended to offer guests an experience rich with history, thoughtfully reimagined as an expression of modern Portland. The designs for the common areas, guestrooms, and restaurant and bar areas are intended to provide a hospitality experience with the poise and personality that explores contrasting elements of land and sea, tapping into the site’s historical use as a railyard and its impressive waterfront surroundings as a peninsula, as well as Portland’s status as a national destination for food and beverage experience. As such, the Property’s design will evoke a boutique feeling using an industrial-chic approach to style.

Amenities will include a fitness center, indoor pool, 1500 square feet of meeting/media room space, restaurant/bar, grab and go merchandise area, private dining room, roof terrace, and speakeasy bar. The property will also utilize the connected 34,000 square feet of event space at the adjacent building Brick South as its primary event space.

Set to open 2020!

The Children’s Museum & Theatre of Maine will be building a new home at Thompson’s Point!

Imagine our future home at Thompson’s Point in Portland

Our future home at Thompson’s Point in Portland will double our size, introduce innovative exhibits, connect us closely with Maine’s natural habitats, and position us to dramatically increase our impact on the learning and development of children. The re-imagined Children’s Museum & Theatre of Maine will serve as both a community hub and an educational resource to support children and caregivers. Using an educational framework based upon play, family, and inclusivity, the Museum & Theatre will continue to focus on four key content areas: early Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM); community engagement; performing and visual arts; and early childhood

An Essential Community Resource:

In communities across the nation, children’s museums are treasured, vital resources for early childhood education and improved quality of life. They offer fun, enriching, activities in a safe environment that serves families from all walks of life.

Play Is Powerful:

Widespread research has consistently documented the essential role of creative play and stimulating educational experiences in early childhood development.  Experts in the field affirm that it is an absolutely critical part of their physical, social and emotional development.

Building for the Future:

The new Thompson’s Point location provides improved visibility and access to public transportation, convenient dedicated parking, considerable outdoor space, and future expansion possibilities.  With a state-of-the-art 30,000 square foot facility, innovative and interactive exhibits, a 100-seat children’s theatre, outdoor play areas, community green space, expanded parking and enhanced access for visitors of all abilities, we will be able to bolster our community building efforts through more programs serving families of all economic means, children with special needs, and Maine’s immigrant and refugee communities.

The Children’s Museum & Theatre will remain open in its current Free Street location throughout the construction phase of the new building and until the move, which is projected for late 2020 or early 2021. Its exhibits, performances, classes, workshops, and community events will continue to welcome visitors at 142 Free Street until that time.
