Fantastic as always! Great rooms with attention to detail, esthetics and excellent service. The Francis is always my first choice in Portland, plus it’s across the street from Tandem for copius coffee and breakfast sandwiches!

Daydream, Thank you so much for the kind review. I've had my fair share of coffee and breakfast sandwiches from Tandem, it never gets old. Next time, let us deliver Tandem to you in bed, then you'll never leave... Best,

Could not have better management. The owners have tons of experience in the hospitality business in Ogunquit and in the Portland area. They know what they are doing and it shows! Looking forward to another stay soon!
