Lark Hotels to reopen Portland property after complete overhaul to bolster growth pipeline

Lark Hotels

Lark Hotels is gearing up to reopen its newest property in Portland after a complete overhaul.

The boutique hotel company, which owns more than 20 hotels across the US and specializes in small, high-end lodging, acquired Danforth Inn last year for $1.7m and next month will relaunch the business as Blind Tiger Guesthouse and Gathering Space as part of the Lark Hotels portfolio.

Speaking to local press recently, Lark creative director Megan Kennedy said: “Blind Tiger is a complete redesign of the property, accentuating some of the great architectural details, a full update, more of a residential feel than it did in its previous versions.”

The project started in January, with plans to reopen the property mid-February in its new carnation.

The nine bedrooms have been renovated, with the inn’s former restaurant transformed into more of a communal area for pop-up events and a community space.

The hotel was built as a private home in 1823 and operated as a Catholic rectory until 1991.

Lark recently acquired three inns near Kennebunkport; the Captain Lord Mansion, Captain Jefferds Inn and Mainestay Inn.

Lark owns and operates more than 20 hotels in Massachusetts, California, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont.
