My wife and I had a wonderful 3 day stay at this hotel on the weekend of April 19-21. We had planned this as a 49th wedding anniversary celebration for several months and were looking forward to seeing a Boston Bruins hockey game on Friday night.
Before we arrived, there was a mix-up in our reservation made through a third party but Jeannette in reservations at Bar Harbor took care of it promptly and professionally. When we arrived on Friday, the city was in lockdown because of the horrific events of the Boston Marathon. The management and staff of the hotel could not have tried any harder to make sure we had a great experience in spite of what was happening in the city.
When the Bruins game was cancelled Friday night, we decided to have dinner in our room as travel in the city was still confined. We had already been surprised with complimentary bottle of champagne and a plate of treats from management. Room service was excellent. Our servers set up a table for two in our room at the huge bay window overlooking the harbor and Logan airport. We were impressed enough that we asked for the same service on Sunday night. It was even more enjoyable as the planes were flying (unlike Friday night) and the lights of the harbor and Logan airport provided a picturesque setting and added to another great dinner.
Breakfast at this hotel is as good as it gets. Whether buffet style (Saturday, Sunday) or menu order (Monday), the food is top quality, well prepared and served by attentive and caring people.
From front desk to concierge, housekeeping, door men and servers and greeters in the restaurants, the staff here knows the reason you picked their hotel to stay at and they go out of their way to make sure you have good reason to come back.
Thank you Mr. Jon Crellin (hotel manager) and staff for making this a special stay. We hope to be back for our 50th.
