Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc.—together with officials of New Castle Hotels and Resorts and RockBridge—has announced the upcoming opening of The Westin Portland Harborview in the spring of 2014.
Currently known as the Eastland Park Hotel, in Portland, Maine, the landmark property will undergo a complete $40 million renovation to implement the full suite of Westin signature amenities and services prior to raising the Westin flag. As of now, the property features 241 guest rooms and 13 meeting rooms.
New Castle, along with RockBridge, an integrated hotel investment firm, acquired the hotel in 2011 with plans to restore Portland's "grand dame hotel," which dates back to 1927. Preserving its historical integrity, the hotel will be stripped to its earliest "bones" of concrete, bricks and steel and updated with the latest Westin signature brand services and amenities.
Boasting commanding views of downtown from the city's only rooftop lounge, The Westin Portland Harborview sits directly across the street from the Portland Museum of Art. It’s close to Portland's financial district and minutes from the Old Port waterfront.
