We just returned from our stay at the West Street Hotel. We traveled with our 2 teenage daughters. We all absolutely loved the hotel and its location. It was clean, the rooms were so spacious and felt safe.The front desk people were so very nice and very helpful. We had tried a resort in Maine before(Spruce Point Inn and it was horrible) so we were extremely pleased with our accomodations, the views, the fact that we did not need to use a car for most of our activities. The restaurants that were recommended-Fathom, Havanna, Mache, Side Street Cafe were amazing. Our only bad experience was with a waiter at the Hotel restaurant Paddy's who was so rude. But the nighttime bartender was great, friendly and poured a great drink! Overall, one of our best Maine vacations! We will definitely return.

Just returned from a great stay in Bar Harbor. The West Street is a great addition to Bar Harbor's accommodations. Loved the extras - kitchens with free water and coffee on each floor; rooftop pool is to die for; the gym is great. The decorators went a bit overboard with the nautical theme, but the rooms are comfortable and spacious. We got a great rate on the Internet (far less than the rate quoted when I called). Overall, I would definitely stay here again.

The rooms are nice. The people are nice. The prices were ridiculous. The views that are described on the web page don't exist. The snacks on each floor are very nice. Mixed feelings about this place. You're in a bit of a Stewman's Lobster Pound conclave - everything being owned by the same people. Convenient, but not very diverse.

This is a first rate hotel! Our first night in Bar Harbor was spent at the sister hotel aross the street. It was very nice but NOTHING like the West Street! This was one of the cleanest hotels Ive ever stayed in. Attention to detail abounds here. The room was so beautiful, I didn't want to leave it! The West Street Hotel will definitely be my destination hotel next time in Maine.

Room Tip: Book a room that faces the front of the hotel. It looks out onto the bay and the main street. You...

This is by far the best hotel in Bar Harbor. It was worth every single penny we spent. The hotel was immaculate from top to bottom. Every inch and every corner was clean and well kept. The decor was gorgeous. A nautical theme of white, red and blues. The bathrooms were modern with a mix of a spa and luxury. We had a two bedroom suite. Traveling with three kids. Both rooms had a small balcony which was very safe. We were facing the harbor. It was amazing sitting out on the balcony at night watching the boats go in and out and the people walking by. We were above Paddy's, a restaurant below. They had live music one night. It was a fantastic 'free' Irish music concert. The restaurant was not loud or intrusive at all. The live music was perfect. The staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful and sincere. They had a great list of restaurants and every one we picked was a winner. Each floor had a mini kitchen station with glasses, mugs, Keurig coffee machine with tea and coffee. There was always cold water bottles in the fridge. There was fresh fruit in the morning and fresh baked treats at night. Free! They share the facilities with the hotel across the street. Just a short walk at most 2 minutes. There they had awesome tennis courts, three pools and a spa. It's their 'sister hotel'. West Street is the perfect hotel in the absolute perfect location. We will most definitely go back!

Room Tip: We were on the second floor facing the harbor over Paddy's restaurant. I would pick the same roo...

This is a wonderful new property that blends with the nautical theme in Bar Harbor, Maine. Rooms facing the harbor allow plenty of people watching and a great view of lobster boats and whale watching boats. The infinity pool on the roof is one of the best features allowing even better views of the city. Great staff and amazing facilities including a guest snack area on every floor. Wake up and make a cup of coffee or get a bottle of water. Have a dog with you? They even provide dog treats!!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the harbor are a bit noisy in the morning with delivery trucks, but who wants to sleep...
