My husband booked this hotel for us on a surprise trip for me and I was thrilled with it.
There's a fireplace in the lobby that smells so great when you return from a day of exploring Bar Harbor and Acadia. The hallways smell amazing because there's a lovely little beverage station in the hall for making coffee, tea, and hot chocolate. They provide full-size glass wine glasses and ceramic coffee mugs for the guests in that spot, along with board games (first come, first served). They serve chocolate chip cookies from 7-9pm which pleased my husband (I'm vegan so I didn't have any -- suggestion for the hotel: make them vegan! They'll be healthier and just as delicious, I promise!)
The room was lovely with modern furniture and a modern bathroom (with a super cool sliding wooden barn door that my husband is now obsessed with recreating in our house). The view from the balcony was of the harbor - so beautiful! The beds were really comfortable.
The location was also great. You can walk across the street to book a tour, you are right near lots of shops and restaurants, and in a second you can drive out of town and be in Acadia within minutes.
The rooftop pool was nice and very modern (and the view was awesome!) - but we were there at the end of the season in October and we were the only people up there. If it were peak season, I can imagine that the pool would not be that fun because it's not that big and who wants to be in a small shallow (4 ft) pool with lots of strangers? The pool also closes at sundown. I think they should have put a hot tub (or two!) up there and leave the pool area open until 11pm.
My only "complaint" about the property is that the elevators are slow... but that's just me being nitpicky. As I titled this review, I LOVED this hotel.
