“Perfect for a nights stay.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013

We called the hotel directly and asked for best rate. Don't use priceline etc.. Check what they have room rated at and ask for same rate. We got room with fireplace and jacuzzi for 99.00 included great breakfast. Staff was super friendly at checkin and in restaurant. Close to shopping. Comfortable beds. Large room. Nothing fancy but pool.sauna,steam and large rooms. Ask for rooms that have been renovated and upgrade. If not busy at hotel they will upgrade you it seems.

I've stayed at this hotel twice in November for business a week at a time. They are very attentive to all of my needs and the rooms are top notch! The cloud 9 restaurant as well as the bar are awesome as well. I didn't use the spa facilities but I did tour them and wow!I plan to return for more business in December and won't look any further than the Senator for my accomadations.

This hotel is supposed to be one the "grand dames" of hotels in New England. The rates in the summer time certainly point to that. So when I had a chance to stay in the off-season, I took it. While the staff was wonderful, and the Spa area was gorgeous, the rooms were very tired and dated. For example, the shower head was coming away from the wall. The room decor reminded me of the 70s or 80s. It wasn't what I expected, given the hotel's reputation.

That said, the rooms were clean, the bed was very comfortable, and most importantly, it was quiet. Breakfast was included, which was also nice, and they offered dairy altenatives, which is important to me, since I have a dairy allergy.

The restaurant was only so-so. The food and dinner service was ok, but not of a caliber that "wowed" me.

I wouldn't pay the very high rates the hotel commands in the summer time, for sure.

Outstanding service with friendly personalized experience...This property features traditional charm with modern updates. Good food and pleasant atmosphere. A solid option for business or pleasure that is a rarity in the corporate chain dominated hotel industry.

I always stay here prior to meetings that require an overnight. A group of us gathered for my birthday a month ago and the staff was unbelievably helpful to my colleague who ran the event. This hotel is always very, very clean. The regular rooms are a wonderful value and up to date with decor and function and the suites are SUPERB! The convenient dining room does a great breakfast buffet. My "thing" is service and no other property in the area can top this.

Room Tip: Depends upon your budget. All are good.

I have stayed at the Senator Inn pretty much everytime I spend time in Augusta. The building itself is a little dated but other than that the rooms are always clean, staff friendly and the continental breakfast is generous.

We stayed at the Senator on our way to Acadia National Park. It was very convenient - just off I-95, Not much of interest near the hotel, but all we were looking for was a place to sleep. It was more than we expected - nice spa and pool, pleasant and reasonably priced dinner, comfortable room and good breakfast.
