  • From start to finish The Press Hotel was amazing to work with. They accommodated all our requests and were beyond helpful in the planning process. The hotel is absolutely gorgeous, with modern, unique decor and a farm to table restaurant and coffee shop on site this place will make you feel like royalty and wow your guests. From the seasonal, sustainable food and drink menus to the way the staff is always one step ahead of your needs, the atmosphere and service is truly above and beyond. Albert Thayer, our wedding coordinator handled our event with expertise and poise and I honestly cannot say enough good things about him. He is very dedicated to his craft and devoted to helping create the day of your dreams. Not to mention, he is one of the kindest most genuine people you’ll ever meet. I would chose him over and over again if I could. If you’re looking for an intimate, romantic and unique wedding experience, I HIGHLY recommend The Press Hotel and Albert Thayer.

  • Our intimate wedding at The Press Hotel was a transcendent experience that is truly “beyond words.” The property is unique and awe-inspiring. With many of the original Portland Press Herald details preserved, it allows for beautiful backdrops and an atmosphere that is sure to impress your guests. Anna Paschal is a gem... a bride’s dream coordinator! She was such a pleasure to work with, has an eye for the details, is always there when you need her and communicates so well throughout the whole process! Chef Josh Berry surpassed his reputation known throughout Portland, ME for his cuisine at Union. With his innovative culinary skills and fresh local ingredients, he created decadent meals for our intimate dinner. He even asked about individual dietary restrictions for each guest! We hope to go back and have our same menu, cake included, for all our anniversaries to come! The presentation and taste of everything was superb!! We would HIGHLY recommend The Press Hotel for ...

  • I cannot say enough amazing things about the Press Hotel and their staff. Everything was INCREDIBLE and I'm beyond thrilled we chose them for our big day! I struggled to write this review because I wasn't sure how to praise them enough! Anna - our sales/event manager - helped us with everything from start to finish with our wedding, from the agreement to the day of - and boy was she AMAZING!!! I'm in event planning for a living she and her team are hands down some of the best I've ever worked with. We felt so taken care of, and the process was simple and as stress free as can be. Anna went above and beyond for us, was super detail-oriented, and made sure our vision for our day came to life. She had amazing suggestions which we gladly accepted (i.e. the idea for our signature drink was all hers and was a huge crowd pleaser) , and when the hotel was running a promotion for our hotel room she actually updated our agreement to reflect the new price without us even asking. You don't find th... Read more

  • Anna and her staff at the Press Hotel were above and beyond what I could have ever expected for my wedding venue. We visited many venues and none of them were quite working - and honestly places we visited sort of left us feeling like we were doing them a favor when we were meeting with them. We had stayed at the Press Hotel before and were always so impressed with the staff. What really put us over the top was once evening when we were trying to choose our venue, we decided to have dinner and stay at the Press. The sales manager, Anna Paschal knew we were coming in and arranged for some pretty awesome special treatment! It was that night that everything fell into place for us and we both were in love wit this venue. The funny thing is that we ended up staying at the Press a few weeks later and never told anyone there we had booked a wedding and the service was completely the same - impeccable! We were treated so well and everyone from valet to front desk and bar staff w... Read more

  • We had a New Year's Eve wedding at the Press Hotel. Every second of this event was perfect. The Press staff is absolutely wonderful and I cannot give enough stars to this venue. I only wish I could do it all over again! Thank you Press for making our wedding so very beautiful.

  • Anna and the staff at the Press Hotel are fantastic. We chose the Wedding on a Whim package and, with Anna's help, planned our wedding in 3 months. The food was delicious, the set up was lovely, and the staff was incredibly responsive, courteous, and professional. We couldn't be happier with our decision to have our wedding ceremony at the Press Hotel.

  • My husband and I wanted a small, intimate wedding (our total was 19 plus a baby) and the Press Hotel is our favorite spot in Portland. We reached out in August for an October wedding (2 months!) and the day was as perfect as though we had been planning it for 2 years, with major credit due to Anna Paschal, who was efficient, responsive, creative and worked wonderfully with my parents. The hotel is so beautiful and the staff clearly takes pride in their business. They made us feel special, cared for and are true experts and KIND people in the hospitality industry.

  • The hotel was dreamy. The food was excellent. Every one of our guests ate all their meals for the weekend at Union and raves about it! My favorite part of the experience was working with Anna Pachal. She handles events at the hotel and union. She worked with me for a year planning this special event and I couldn’t be happier with every single interaction. She is professional, kind, thoughtful and easy to talk to. I’m so thankful she was there through the whole process. We felt so taken care of. It was the best weekend ever.

  • Our wedding at the Press Hotel was unforgettable. They treated us like royalty from the moment we first inquired. Our coordinator, Anna Paschal, was incredibly professional and helped us with every detail. There is a lot to be said for having your wedding in a beautiful boutique hotel with a rooftop deck. Just about everything was taken care of for us, from the delicious meal Union restaurant prepared, to the luxurious accommodations. We were actually able to relax, if only for a little bit. Since we had a small wedding (about 60 guests) and an even smaller ceremony (20 guests) we were able to take advantage of the incredible backdrop of the City of Portland while delivering our nuptials on the rooftop deck with our closest friends and family. Because the rooftop deck was connected to the penthouse suite, we reserved for the day of the wedding, the wedding party was able to use it to get ready and then greet guests as they arrived for the ceremony. Cocktail hour, held in the art galler... Read more

  • My wedding experience with The Press Hotel was absolutely phenomenal! Every detail was carefully thought out and taken care of for me. Anna Paschal, in particularly, was an incredible coordinator and made this experience flawless for us! Everything the venue has to offer, from the penthouse suite, to the private rooftop deck and the in-house restaurant, The Union, along with their Inkwell Bar, made this the perfect venue for us. We couldn't be happier with the way things turned out. Photos to come...THANK YOU!

  • The Press and UNION were the perfect choice for our small intimate wedding. We were able to create a 'her' and 'his' drink choice that reflected our favorite drinks, the cocktail hour with fresh seafood offerings was amazing. We were able to customize our menu and dessert options, the chef came out prior to our main entree being served, which was such a nice touch to make us feel even more special. When my husband and I walked into the UNION after taking photos across the street at City Hall the staff at the UNION and other guests were clapping and cheering for us; we were overwhelmed with such joy. The event coordinator/manager, Anna met with us about a month prior to discuss the space and food options and kept in touch often as time came closer. Everything was wonderful and stress free as a wedding should be when you are celebrating the best day of your lives! Peter and I will most definitely recommend the UNION and Press to friends and family; the dining experience is upscale, fine ... Read more
