About Harborside Hotel, Modern Luxury in Downtown Bar Harbor

Nestled on picturesque Frenchman's Bay, the Harborside Hotel, Spa & Marina has made a name for itself as one of the premier downtown Bar Harbor hotels. With 193 superb accommodations, stellar amenities and authentic "Down East" hospitality, the Harborside has everything you need to create unforgettable Bar Harbor vacations, whether you are planning a romantic weekend getaway, family vacation or traveling to Bar Harbor to celebrate a special occasion.

Choose from elegantly-appointed guest rooms, deluxe studios and luxurious suites, nearly all of which feature stunning views of Frenchman's Bay and the ocean beyond. The Harborside also showcases several acclaimed Bar Harbor restaurants ranging from the aromatic Italian fare at La Bella Vita to authentic lobster bakes at Stewman's Lobster Pound. And when you want something casual, savor the fresh sandwiches, salads and signature cocktails by the side of our expansive free-form swimming pool, boasting 180-degree harbor views and a spacious deck with comfortable loungers.

Join us for an adventurous sailing trip in search of great humpback whales or go lobstering onboard an authentic Down East lobster boat. Both The Bar Harbor Whale Watch Company and Lulu Lobster Boat Tours set sail from our own downtown marina. There are ample opportunities for kayaking, hiking and biking amongst the stunning beauty of Acadia National Park, located just minutes from the hotel. Guests of the Harborside are invited to experience the recently restored Bar Harbor Club, offering sophisticated dining, clay tennis courts, a modern fitness center, an oceanfront swimming pool and pampering treatments at The Spa at Bar Harbor Club.

Planning a conference, family reunion or romantic coastal Maine wedding? The Harborside has partnered with The Bar Harbor Regency and the historic Bar Harbor Club to provide guests with more than 11,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event space. In addition to exceptional meeting venues, our dedicated team is ready to elevate your event experience with delectable catering options, engaging team building activities and a full menu of audio visual enhancements.

The Harborside Hotel, Spa & Marina is also a member of OPAL Collection, an exclusive ensemble of luxury resorts and hotels.
