Combining a 1908 French Renaissance hotel with a 1912 Beaux-Arts drugstore and adding a latter-day aesthetic might have resulted in an architectural Frankenstein.

But the new 150-room Woodlark Hotel, which Provenance Hotels opened in December, has pulled it off. Elements include a marble U-shaped bar that serves as a front desk and coffee counter, backed with work by local painter Maja Dlugolecki. “Inside the rooms, custom wallpaper [features] botanicals found in Forest Park,” says Christian Robert, principal of R&A Architecture + Design, which helped create the space. Other touches: blue velvet chairs by R&A’s design director and wool rugs by Christiane Millinger, which were handmade in Portland.
