Room service: After more than a year, a multimillion-dollar makeover of iconic downtown island hotel The Tremont House is complete. Renovations encompass the entire 135-room property and some pay tribute to island-born oilman and developer George P. Mitchell and his wife, Cynthia. The work was finished as the property readies to officially rebrand Nov. 1 as part of Marriott Bonvoy’s Tribute Portfolio.

We have the staircase and balcony from the Tremont House in our house that was demolished in 1928. They're gorgeous.
