Great getaway, great stay
Very pleased with our stay at the hotel and the offerings. The front desk staff was very helpful from the time that we made our reservations through the time that we checked out. The room was more than we needed and the breakfast offerings were nice as well. The location within Bar Harbor and its proximity to Acadia was perfect in allowing us to spend the daylight hours in the park and enjoy the town and all of its shops and restaurants in the evening - far fewer restaurants open this time of year. We will be back !!

Great experience in the age of Covid
The Grand Hotel has done the best job of "covid" grab and go (or sit) breakfast we have seen. Some stuff to microwave, good selection of other breakfast food. Well done. Good location just a few streets up from the Common. Things were still crowded even after Columbus Day.

Whenever my husband and I travel to Bar Harbor this is where we stay. The rooms are large and comfortable. You can't beat the convenience of the location. So many great restaurants just a 5 minute walk away. The park is just a few minutes away by car and when the busses are running you're a few minute walk to the town green. This visit we were especially pleased with the way things were handled during the virus. Everything was clean. We felt safe. In addition breakfast had more options than other hotels we've stayed in this fall. You could eat at a table or bags were provided for a to go option. The entire staff was friendly and goes out of the way to help. We hope our trip next year is under better circumstances.

Excellent Stay in Perfect Location
We have just returned from the most relaxing weekend away at The Bar Harbor Grand Hotel. From the second we arrived we were treated like royalty. Everything was perfect, the staff was friendly and we felt absolutely safe and secure despite the pandemic. The building itself is beautiful and reminded me of the Addams Family house (much more maintained, of course). Perfect for an autumn/Halloween getaway.
Acadia National Park is conveniently located about a ten minutes drive away from the hotel. The downtown location is perfect for walking to restaurants and shopping. One of the days we did not even have to use our car.
My husband and I stayed in Room 114. Despite it being on the first floor it was surprisingly quiet and relaxing. The room was large and had quite a few Bath and Body Works amenities located in the bathroom. My husband and I especially loved their comfortable mattress and heating system (although a bit tricky to figure out at first).
Their level of service and cleanliness made us feel at home. I would love to thank their front desk staff. We encountered a few different people during our stay and each one of them were kind and helpful. We will most certainly return to The Bar Harbor Grand for future stays in Bar Harbor.

Great stay and perfect location!
This was our first trip to Bar Harbor and we couldn’t of been more pleased with the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel. The friendly staff, the cleanliness of our room and the location in downtown Bar Harbor made our trip memorable. When our travels take us back to Bar Harbor we’ll be sure to stay at the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel.
