Drawing on the heritage of this historic city in the heart of Maine, The Lockwood Hotel — aptly named for the namesake of nearby landmark Lockwood Mills, home to the city’s deep tradition of textile manufacturing — is a nod to Waterville’s history of innovation and reinvention. The modern boutique property includes 53 rooms and suites, meeting rooms, fitness facilities, and Front & Main, a full-service bar and restaurant with a focus on ingredients from Maine farmers and harvesters. A limestone façade ties the building into the existing adjacent architecture along Main Street, and celebrates the significance of the material in Maine’s historic and civic buildings. A seasonal patio adjoining Front & Main will tie into a neighboring public park and other outdoor spaces and restaurants, reinforcing owner Colby College’s commitment to revitalization of the entire downtown corridor. The project will complete in late 2020.
