This was the perfect hotel for a weekend shopping trip to Bangor. I picked this hotel based on the trip advisor reviews and it well deserves the #1 spot! This hotel looks every bit as nice as the professional pictures portray. The nicely decorated lobby has a welcoming feel to it with a very comfortable seating area around a double sided fireplace (one side with a TV over it), a table where people sit to read or could play cards, a dining area, and a bar/lounge area that was popular at night. The check in desk is also there with a little tuck shop for what you may have forgotten or need. Lots of windows give it a nice open feeling and the layout is very functional and comfortable to just sit and enjoy.
The dining room serves dinner in the evening and is also used for the breakfast buffet which is a bit pricey at $9.95 per person, but it is complete with cereal, fresh fruit, yogurt, scrambled eggs, bacon, delicious made to order omelettes, etc. It’s fresh and better than your average breakfast with cooks serving you from the kitchen as well as wait staff to assist in any way... very nice set up and a great way to start a shopping or driving day.
The room was very clean and comfortable with two queen beds, a reading chair, and a desk. The beds can be set to softer or firmer by a dial on the side of the mattress. It took me the first night to find my comfort zone. Very nice bathroom and there is also a small microwave and mini-fridge. The air conditioning is quiet, but you can also open the window a few inches. The only negative is that the TV was only a 27 inch. which is small by today’s standards.
This hotel has the most wonderful staff I’ve ever encountered. Everyone is so welcoming, friendly, and helpful. Being surrounded by such nice people really added to my stay at this wonderful hotel. One more thing that I really enjoyed was the hotel shuttle that took us to the Olive Garden for dinner and picked us up. I called the desk and set a time to take us and we were given a card by the driver to call when we were ready to be picked up. Very nice and timely which allowed us to enjoy wine with dinner and not worry about driving.
This hotel is well located for shopping and dining and they have thought of everything to please their guests. Next time I go, I plan to book an extra night just to relax and enjoy the wonderful ambiance . A very pleasant experience worth repeating!
