Top 10 Romantic Hotels in Portland
The Lion & The Rose
Genteel ambience and warm service in a majestic Victorian mansion.
This huge Queen Anne home stands out, even in the upscale historical Irvington neighborhood. It was built in 1906 and the décor remains true to the era. The moment you walk through the door, you feel as though you've entered a different world. High tea, a roaring fire and fresh-baked cookies await. It's a bit like staying with your wealthy great-grandparents. The building is architecturally significant, with its unique blend of Victorian elements. It's listed on the National Register of Historic Places and takes that honor very seriously. The place is stuffed with period carpets and antiques, and the rooms are beautiful as well as comfortable. Most offer their own baths. Outside, the English-style gardens feature fountains, bird baths, statuary and a gazebo.
