Befitting its status as a landmark in a New England city rich with history, The Portland Regency Hotel & Spa is familiar and classic. Jewel-tone colors, dark woodwork and traditional furnishings set the tone in the lobby, Twenty Milk Street restaurant and Armory Lounge. However, the Portland, Maine, hotel is in the midst of a renovation; guest rooms on the third and fourth floors are now considerably more contemporary in style than those on the first and second floors, which will be redone by 2015. The new units boast stylish, modern furniture, subtly striped carpets, while marble countertops and glassed-in showers are showcased in the sleek bathrooms. The colors bridge the new and old worlds: soft grays, rich browns, gold and taupe, with touches of red.
