North Adams, Massachusetts, welcomed its newest travel destination this summer with the opening of Hotel Downstreet, operated by hospitality management firm Main Street Hospitality. Main Street Hospitality also owns and operates the nearby Porches Inn.

“We redesigned Hotel Downstreet with the intention of celebrating the vibrant, curious and charismatic spirit that defines North Adams,” says Sarah Eustis, founder of Main Street Hospitality, in a prepared statement. “Our mission has always been to inspire guests to connect in truly meaningful ways and there is no better destination to engage with creatives in an approachable setting than Hotel Downstreet.”

Hotel Downstreet comprises 90 guest rooms and offers an indoor pool, inviting lobby, and a collection of artwork intended to highlight North Adams as an artistic destination in the Northeast. The highly curated art collection is displayed across all areas of the hotel, from guest rooms to public and interior spaces, showcasing both local and internationally renowned artists. The Studios at Downstreet, located directly off the lobby, offer large, open spaces for ongoing collaborations with artists, galleries, and nearby institutions that can also double as creative gathering and event spaces.

North Adams is best known as the home of the largest contemporary art museum in the nation, the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA)—also an ideal location for hosting events with 250,000 square feet of gallery space. Scattered throughout the burgeoning hot spot for creatives, the quaint and walkable North Adams boasts several mom-and-pop restaurants and breweries; the tallest peak in Massachusetts, Mount Greylock; and an abundance of activities for people of all ages to enjoy year-round.
