project description

Windham Millwork was the architectural millwork company selected to help restore the historic Eastland Hotel in Portland, Me. The new Westin Portland Harborview Hotel was a $50 million renovation and is now the largest hotel in the State of Maine with 289 rooms. The original hotel, The Eastland, first opened in 1927 and cost roughly $2 million to build.

WMI was responsible for all the millwork and woodwork throughout the entire hotel. Mahogany and rift sawn white oak fill the entire project and give the hotel a sophisticated and elegant look. WMI manufactured and installed all the paneling within the lobby, corridors and ball rooms. The reception desks and decorative paneling that sits behind with the Westin logo were all furnished by WMI. The custom slatted wall is very visible upon entering the hotel both in the front and towards the back of the lobby. In all the lobby bathrooms Windham furnished and installed custom mahogany stall doors and vanity countertops. All trim and base mould were also completed by WMI. Ceiling panels, elevator panels and other decorative custom millwork can be seen throughout the entire entrance of the hotel.

On the first floor of the hotel Windham Millwork furnished and installed all interior woodwork at the Congress Street Restaurant, ball rooms and meeting rooms. Inside the restaurant WMI furnished and installed the bar, trim and massive 1,000 bottle wine display that weighs over 5,600lbs when full, hostess station and coat rack. Also included in the restaurant were banquet seating which was completed by Windham. The back bar casework features decorative pulls that surely catch your eye. In the ball rooms and meeting rooms there features custom trim throughout.
