MaineBiz names 118 as part of the upscale, “new Portland”

mainebiz_coverIn the current issue of MaineBiz, 118 on Munjoy Hill is grouped with national names such as Michael Kors, Microsoft Store, Hyatt Place and Courtyard Marriott.

These national brands and upscale developments represent the new Portland, a city that has transformed itself over the past five years to now be recognized by developers, retailers, hoteliers, tourists and restaurateurs as a prized destination for quality of life, tourism and top-notch restaurants. Indeed, Business Insider magazine recently named Portland as a Top 14 travel destination for 2014, one of only two U.S. cities to get that honor, writing, “America’s other Portland has been gaining a reputation as a funky low-key destination that prizes quality food and cutting-edge art.” The magazine noted the 500 new hotel rooms expected to open in the next two years.
