U.S. News Review

Flanking the coast of Frenchman Bay from its central Bar Harbor perch near Acadia National Park, the Harborside Hotel, Spa & Marina has been welcoming visitors since the early 1900s. The hotel's design reflects its history with ornate chandeliers, leather furniture and exposed wooden beams. Guests especially admire the Harborside Hotel's outdoor pool and deck, which stretches out over the bay and offers spectacular views of nearby islands. And families love the kid-friendly atmosphere. While you take some much needed spa time, the kiddos can retreat to the Bar Harbor Kids Club, where they can participate in a variety of sporting activities and arts and crafts. Afterward, rendezvous at one of the Harborside's four dining venues to savor a delicious meal. When it's time to bed down, you'll retreat to spacious digs furnished with feather pillows, marble bathrooms, flat-screen TVs and semi-private balconies (in some rooms).
