Even the locals can't get enough of this Old Port hideout. Blame it on the mahogany bar in the Armory Lounge, whose notorious cocktail menu lists an impressive 28 creations (watch out for Martini Mondays.) Or the lobster stew at Twenty Milk Street, the Portland Regency Hotel & Spa's acclaimed seafood and steak restaurant.
Built in 1895 as an armory for Maine's National Guard, this 95-room retreat is as much an architectural draw as it is a social one, with many of the original elements still intact - each alcove is unique, each window its own size and shape.
The Portland Regency Hotel & Spa occupies a prime slice of real estate in the historic Old Port district: 1 block from the waterfront and 10 minutes from the Portland International Jetport. Freeport's outlets are a 20-minute drive away.
