Fodor's Expert Review Bar Harbor Grand Hotel

269 Main St., Bar Harbor, Maine, 04609, USA

Taking one of the well-appointed, modern rooms in this renovated historic building puts you right in the middle of Bar Harbor, just a stone's throw from lively restaurants, cafés, and gift shops. It's a short walk to the waterfront from here, but you can also jump into the hotel's heated pool or lounge in the Jacuzzi, if you're not up to the Atlantic's less temperate waters. Elegant simplicity underpins stately guest rooms, with comfortable beds and modern amenities. The extended continental breakfast in the morning is enough to tide you over until an early dinner. The grand front porch has a row of rocking chairs for a morning coffee , an afternoon tea, or a pick-me-up.
