The Francis

The Francis
Located on 747 Congress Street in the historic Mellen E. Bolster House, The Francis is a smart, fifteen-room hotel designed around the history and culture of Portland. We value attentive service, guest amenities and neighborhood collaborations; we love this city and believe our guests do, too. Filled with art, craftwork and snacks by local purveyors, we aim to provide guests a comfortable and uniquely Portland experience.

HISTORY
We’ve chosen to name our hotel after Francis Fassett, who designed our building as a home for Mellen E. Bolster in 1881. Born in Bath, Maine in 1823, Fassett was a leading architect for Maine in Portland, and is credited with helping rebuild much of the city after the Great Fire of 1866, heavily influencing the look and feel of Portland’s historic West End neighborhood. Many of Portland’s historic landmarks bear his designs – the Baxter Library, Maine General Hospital Building (now Maine Medical Center), the Second Parish Church, as well as the former City Hall. His influence continues to be felt in other Portland neighborhoods by the designs of his most successful protégé and eventual partner, John Calvin Stevens.
