I loved just about everything about the Brunswick Hotel and Tavern. The staff was courteous and met every need, the room was immaculate, the hotel was gorgeously decorated and maintained, and the service was impeccable overall. Location was extremely convenient to Bowdoin College (note: they have a Bowdoin friends and family rate -- I did not know this before my stay!). Additionally, the tavern is great -- awesome service, great beers on tap, and really good food.
My only complaint about the hotel is that the parking lot is small and fills up quickly in the evenings, especially over the weekend. It is marked as "registered guests only" but it seems like the hotel bar is a popular local attraction (not surprising -- good drinks, great food, live music), and it can be very challenging to find a spot. I ended up having to park at the train station across the street a few times during my six night stay...a little frustrating, but certainly not a dealbreaker. I was also a little frustrated because there was construction going on across the street that started around 6:30-6:45 (loudly) every morning I was there, but that is not the hotel's fault.
All in all: The Brunswick is quaint, adorable, very New-Englandy, and the people are very friendly. A solid 'A' in my book! I would definitely stay here again.
