We were upgraded from a Holiday Inn to this hotel as it is very new and they wanted to try it out on some hotel guests. This place is fantastic! It is in the middle of everything--harbor, restaurants, shopping, etc. The staff is friendly & the rooms are clean and gorgeous! The coolest amenity though is the "communal pantry" that consists of complimentary Keurig coffee, tea and hot chocolate, fresh fruit during the day and cookies at night. Also bottled water and dog treats if you bring your pup. Another little “big” thing is that the bathroom floors are heated so when you get out of the shower on a cold day, your feet are warm! This hotel is all about the details and we will absolutely stay there again. Valet staff and bellmen were nice too. Everyone made it a great vacation!

We spent 5 nights there and had a great time. Access to the hot tub across the street was a godsend for tired muscles each day after hiking, biking and shopping. The staff was always accomodating. Sitting in front of the fireplace in the lobby was relaxing and great fun. Look forward to a return visit.

Room Tip: Definitely get a harborside view room.

My wife and I toured the hotel while visiting Acadia in August and decided to stay there when we returned in October. The off season rate was tremendous considering the delightful character of the nautically appointed, spacious and comfortable room with a partial view of the Bay and town. We appreciated the convenience of staying in town in such a stellar room which included a comfortable sofa and other helpful pieces of furniture - safe and refrigerator. The coffee bar was on each floor was a wonderful addition. We arrived on the last day for the rooftop pool to be heated so we weren't able to use it, but we will when we return next year. The staff was extremely cordial.

We had the two room suite and it was terrific, spacious, great views, beautifully furnished, great bed. From the pictures I was afraid it might be a bit too nautical, but it was a very sophisticated decor. the roof top pool and lounge space was amazing. We had never been to Bar Harbor and I thought it might be noisy at night since it is so centrally located, but the street actually quiets down, seems the late night places were around the block. Hotel was brand new, and rally in perfect condition. Bathrooms had large step in, showers (I think this may only be on the two room suites) that were great. Lived up to all of its advertising and more.

We took advantage of a Fall internet special....we spent 3 days in this brand new beautiful hotel...
We had 2 queen beds overlooking the harbor...It was beautiful...the rooms were so large by today's standards....The Tommy Bahama bedding was so comfortable...the decor was very impressive----the couch was comfortable...we enjoyed our meals so much at Paddy's we went twice. The floors in the bath were heated---the shower was huge and nice and hot...My husband I loved the coffee/tea or hot chocolate that was offered everyday right in our hallway...with fresh fruit by day and yummy cookies at night...The staff was so friendly, we would sit by the beautiful fireplace in the lobby and they were always there to say hello and to even chat with the guests...
There were nothing negative....the only thing that will happen is once word gets around about this hotel...there will never be any specials and we will not be able to stay again because we could not afford it....Truly a marvelous place to stay!!!

Room Tip: select a water view---the money difference is well worth it

Upon arrival we were pleasantly surprised with a room upgrade which afforded us 2 rooms to ourselves at the end of the hall. We had a harbor view on the second floor which was fine. We also had a breakfast package which allowed a full breakfast at the attached restaurant - very good and great selections. The hotel is right in town walking distance to shop, restaurants and boat tours. Acadia is just a short drive away and beautiful place to visit, great is you like to hike. If you are a beer lover like my husband check out Blaze restaurant, you'll know why when you get there ; )
Beer tastings at Bar Harbor Brewing right in town and Atlantic brewing about 5 minutes out of town. Both owned by Atlantic but offer different tasting at each location. For the wine lover check out bar harbor winery and be pleasantly surprised at the selections. Recommend hotel and great area to visit.

This was a great place to visit Bar Harbor. The hotel exceeded our expectations and the amenities are 5 star. The rooms, the linens, the bathroom and service were faultless. The coffee/snack bar on each floor is not to be missed. The laundry is free-where can you get anything for free? The daily newspaper can be read in the gorgeous lobby by the fire, nice spot to meet other travelers. We'll be back-great location to everything, nice convenient parking and we did NOT have any problems with noise.

Room Tip: Make sure you are overlooking the harbor side.
