“Great amenities, beautiful view, adult only infinity pool”
Reviewed 28 August 2014

Fantastic place. We had a really hard time finding a hotel late in the summer and we happened to end up here. LOVED it. Beautiful, well kept rooms. Fair price. Friendly staff. The adults only infinity pool on the roof was beyond relaxing and had a gorgeous view. Location was perfect. If we go back to Bar Harbor, we will be staying here.

Dear BenH05,

Your review summarizes many of the great amenities that we offer for our guests and I am pleased to hear you were able to enjoy all these amenities- we have had a great summer for the rooftop, adult only pool and many of our guests have been able to experience a great, Maine summer.

We look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back to property!

Warm Regards,
Chris Torrey

We arrived a day ahead of our reservation in mid-June, and the desk manager still honored the "3 Days/ 30% Off" deal. Our "Premium King Harbor View" is a large spacious room with a king bed, loveseat, small table/chairs, large dresser, large closet with a safe. The bathroom is large with a big shower.The balcony overlooking the harbor has 2 chairs and a small table. Each floor has a a "pantry" with a coffee, tea, bottled water, fruit and evening cookies available. The décor is subdued modern nautical, very comfortable. Restaurants and shops are within the building, and parking is just behind. Warning: the downtown area with more shops and restaurants is just two blocks away, but the two blocks are uphill, if that is an issue. I would stay here again.

Fantastic luxurious, nautical-inspired upscale hotel with gorgeous views of Frenchman's Bay from almost every room. The location is right in the heart of Bar Harbor's main streets, which is a huge plus since parking is tight during summer season. The hotel overall is a great value. Staff is friendly - several bell staff were from Eastern Europe spending their summer working over here. It was great getting to know them over the period of time we were here.

Rooms - well appointed | super hot showers | amazingly comfortable beds | spacious | great views

Amenities - on-site adult pool | on-site workout facilities | breakfast fruit | evening cookies | off-site pool | off-site tennis courts | On & Off Site restaurants

Hotel - new | beautiful lobby | nice sitting areas | live evening entertainment | friendly staff

We stayed here for 3 nights in August and we really loved this hotel. The hotel was very nicely decorated and soooooo convenient to everything in town. The rooftop pool was lovely and had a nice view of the harbor. Staying here also gets you in at the Bar Harbor Club across the street and we worked out at the gym there and swam at that pool and used the jaccuzzi. There were only a handful of people there and there were locker rooms with showers and amenities so it was great to use on the last day after we checked out. We really liked the coffee and fruit and water and cookies that came with the 'resort fee' but realistically speaking, if you don't have a choice whether to incdude this, then why call it a resort fee? Why not just fold it in to the hotel charge? Nonetheless, I would stay there again. Bar Harbor is a lovely town and the hiking at Acadia is some of the best I've ever done. Beautiful area.

Room Tip: We didn't spring for a harbor view so our balcony faced the back. It was still nice but next ti...

Outstanding hotel. Best location. You can walk to restaurants, shops and the marina. Acadia National Park is also very close if you like hiking. Heated rooftop pool is beautiful and includes views of the Harbor. Family friendly hotel but an equally great choice for couples. Our room had a view of the harbor and was spotless. Check-in and check-out went smoothly. After returning from a vacation my husband and I use a scale to rate our accommodations. On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the highest we rated the West Street Hotel a 10.

Previously we stayed at the Blue Nose, which was lovely but away from town, and this trip we stayed in downtown Bar Harbor as a gift from our daughter. What a fabulous place ! The location was perfect: right where the "action was" (whale watching; nature tours; shops; restaurants; etc.!) plus a great restaurant right below! IF I had a complaint, it's that I'm really picky about being super clean. So as clean overall as the hotel was, our bathroom was not spic & span when we returned to our room -- faucets still marked from use -- hair still found in sink -- that type of thing. That aside, we had a wonderful view of the harbor on a semi-private balcony -- for coffee drinkers, we loved the Keurig accessibility & bottles of water (not to mention fun little desserts) !! So altho this is not a cheap hotel, we felt that we got our money's worth just because we loved everything about it. You won't be disappointed!

Room Tip: Balcony view of harbor !

I booked an ocean view room which cost more than the harbor view. It is the same view. We are on the 4th floor so that is good but you still see traffic and hear noise on the street. Room is up to standards for luxury hotels. Location is excellent. Bar Harbor is at your door step.
