Another amazing weekend in the books at the West Street Hotel! My husband and I both live in Southern Maine and find it such a treat to come up for a getaway at the West Street. The Staff are so friendly and accommodating. The Manager Nicole always greats us with a smile and is genuinely happy to see us. Kate was our Concierge, she was very warm and welcoming. They truly treat all their guests like royalty. We were surprised and delighted to find that we were given the exact same room as when we stayed during our wedding week in Sept 2019. It could’ve been a coincidence, but I have a feeling that there was some thought put into that behind the scenes. (Thank you!) Even in the earliest point of the season you can find enjoyment exploring the heated pool and hot tub across the street at their sister hotel. If you decide not to go to the top of Cadillac, you can enjoy Sunset right from your balcony overlooking the Harbor. Our package included a free breakfast which was delightful as always. Such a fun Weekend at our home, not-too-far away from home. We are already looking forward to our next visit.

We are so thrilled to have had the opportunity to again spend 10 days at West Street Hotel. I can't imagine a more perfect hotel. The service is both personable and professional, under the exceptional leadership of the general manager Nicole S. She greets each visitor as a friend! They were extremely careful about their covid precautions. The rooms were so clean and comfortable and the balconies have the perfect view of the harbor. Paddy's is a great place to enjoy a meal. Even though my husband usually likes to eat outside the hotel, we have found that Paddy's is one of the best restaurants in Bar Harbor and it is is pleasure to just walk downstairs for a meal. The only suggestion I have to make is to PLEASE add an electric charging station to the parking lot (or, at the very least, an outside 220 volt plug) so that we can charge our electric car while staying at the hotel. We can't wait to return.

The hotel is exceptional at the attention to detail. Before we arrived the hotel staff called to communicate with us about our room check in and made sure we had rooms close to each other as we were traveling with friends. The rooms are clean and beautifully decorated. The hotel is conveniently located for access to restaurants, bars and excursions as well as parking. Paddy's the hotel restaurant has a very friendly staff and delicious food.

This was a very nice hotel and almost perfect. Here's our list of pros and cons: PROS -Location right on the harbor, beautiful views from our balcony. Excellent for walking anywhere in the harbor area. Bike shop, gift shops, restaurants, etc -Big room, great shower, free bottled water and Keurig coffee (unlimited in the kiosk area for each floor) -Parking was easy -Restaurant attached -Nice lobby -Excellent customer service CONS -no hot tub. I must not have read the description well since it mentions having a hot tub but it's actually across the street at another hotel. And with the cooler temperatures and strong wind in October, neither one of us wanted to trek across to another hotels hot tub.....which was also pretty crowded when we went to find it. which isn't too surprising since (2) hotels are sharing it. -Attached restaurant. So this is also under my "pros" because it is nice to have a restaurant/bar attached to the hotel but when we arrived at 8:45pm on the night we checked in, they couldn't seat us since they closed at 9pm. Nor could we sit and relax for a drink at the bar. So it was disappointing that the restaurant didn't seem to cater to the hotel guests very much since it wasn't really in the hotel, but just attached. But due to COVID, they have needed to reduce their hours. Which is understandable. Yet I do appreciate having an actual bar in the hotel though for this reason, more flexibility for guests. -I believed West Street was priced the same as the two other big hotels across the street...each with their own hot tubs and bars/restaurants in the hotel rather than attached (I believe). And I did try to book those hotels first but they were all full for our time frame. So overall, not sure the amenities warranted the room rate at the West Street. Overall, would I recommend the hotel? -Yes as long as the amenities meet your needs. Would I stay at West Street again? -Yes if the other two hotels across the street were booked or this one had a considerably better deal.

Wonderful hotel with beautiful views of Mt. Desert Narrows.. The staff were all friendly and helpful with what was open and closed in and around the area. Finn is just adorable and the kids looked forward to seeing him everyday. Room was clean, comfortable and everyone made sure our stay was pleasant. One of the nicest bathrooms I've seen in a hotel. This will be where we stay for now on when we visit the area. The restaurant Paddy's is fantastic. Every meal was delicious, far better than some of the surrounding restaurants. Especially the one up the street that had us wait an hour over our reservation time for what was an ok meal at best. If you have never visited Acadia National Park in the fall you are missing out on a incredible visual experience. The colors and smell from the evergreens are unforgettable.
