Feature article on The Danforth, which with only ten guest rooms is probably the smallest hotel in Portland, but it's also one of the most exquisite. All the rooms have working fireplaces and fine furnishings, but the primary goal is comfort rather than museum-house correctness or contrived cuteness. The Danforth, a renovated Federal mansion, has been in business since 1994 and is favored by upscale business travelers as well as vacationers. The brick manse at 163 Danforth Street, now owned by former New York model Barbara Hathaway, was built in 1821 by Portland silver merchant Joseph H. Ingraham, and was once used as a girls's school, and then as the rectory of St. Dominic Catholic Church. In 2001, Hathaway won a Statewide Historic Preservation Honor Award for "excellence in restoration and adaptive use" of the building.
