We just returned from an unusually warm September weekend at the West Street Hotel. The rooms are attractive, spacious, tastefully decorated, and very clean.The hotel's location is perfect for walking around town. The cherry on top was the roof-top deck with infinity pool. It has views to die for and the pool was heated to a comfortable temperature. It was pretty quiet so we had the place almost to ourselves, so enjoyed lounging, catching some rays, swimming, and sipping on wine. A heavenly way to spend the end of a day hiking and biking one of the most beautiful places!

Room Tip: Definitely opt for the Harbor View!

The hotel was very expensive but the view of the harbor was gorgeous. There was complimentary coffee and fruit in the morning and water and cookies in the evening. The room was spacious and comfortable and the shower was huge. The hotel was in a perfect location making it very easy to walk to restaurants and shops.

My husband and I have been coming to Bar Harbor for many years, and this is without a doubt our new favorite place to stay. The hotel was incredibly clean, everyone was friendly, and its location in the downtown area was perfect - ever our "non view" room had a glimpse of the bay! I would highly recommend staying here - we'll be back next year for sure!

This hotel is beautiful and located right along the waterfront. Our room(s) were magnificently appointed with modern fixtures and a comfortable king-size bed. Our room had a wonderful view of the harbor and waking up every morning was a joy.
The common pantry on our floor was a great plus. Many options of coffee or tea as well as juice and water were provided. In the morning there would be fresh fruit and the evening would have cookies or brownies.
Paddys restaurant (on the first floor) was very convenient and the food was very good. But some of the staff did not seem like they wanted to be there which makes it ackward when making request.
All in all this I would recommend this hotel for what it has to offer. Even though we didn't have time to enjoy the roof top infinity pool, we went and checked it out for our next stay. Walking distance to everything, plus access to the Bar Harbor Country Club (Thanks for the drinks Sarah.) Get a room facing the water. you will not be disappointed..

The modern decoration and clean colour scheme give this hotel an instant wow factor on arrival. The bed was incredibly comfortable and furnishings in the room were beautiful. The location for the hotel is perfect, right in the centre of town and being able to park in the hotel car park is a big bonus. Unfortunately, the central location did mean that there was some traffic noise from about 6.30am which didn't affect us (as we are very early risers) but may be a nuisance for people who want a lie in.

We really liked the pantries on each floor and the nighttime cookies and brownies were delicious. The complimentary coffees, hot chocolates, mineral water etc was a nice touch.

On the roof is an infinitely pool which is absolutely beautiful but very cold!

Room Tip: The rooms with a water front view are noisy because they are right on top of the busy road so you wi...

My new husband and are currently on a New England honeymoon and due to other reviews on this hotel and an amazing location chose this facility in Bar Harbor! The rooms are uber chic and modern, great nautical themed decor! Our room had a spectacular view of the Harbor from our balcony and was in easy walking distance to all the "action" (restaurants shops etc) of the cute little village! My one minor complaint is that in this beautiful subway tiled rain headed two person shower, as a female a ledge or bench to shave my legs should have been AWESOME! Hardly a real complaint though! The service is superb, we had the pleasure of meeting the front desk manager Callie (sp) at her second job at one of the local restaurants her great customer serviced carried from both jobs!! She sent champagne to our room and when requested extra towels be delivered were surprised with towels in the shapes of hearts and swans!! (For love struck honeymooners like us so cute!) her knowledge of the area and dinning recommendations top notch! Would (and have) recommended this hotel anytime for a Bar Harbor Splurge!!!

Bit expensive to stay here but for the location and amenities it's worth trying at least once. When you enter the hotel you feel like you're in a trendy hotel from NYC. Really cool place to stay with a great irish pub called Paddy's on site. If you can get a room for $275 a night or less I'd recommend it but anything over that I'm not sure it's worth it. Only complaint would be not knowing about the $25 amenity fee per night ahead of time and even though the hotel is brand new I noticed some spots in the room were poor construction. I'm a real estate developer so those little things catch my eye but maybe others wouldn't. Otherwise a great spot and the room was perfect for a couple.

Room Tip: Try this place once
