This is a great place to stay in the downtown area of Bangor, it was full when we stayed so we did not get a themed room (college graduation ) but they are working on getting them all themed. I would stay here again.

Great stay, can't wait to return. Nice room and Dana was great help. Room was very comfortable in a great historical hotel. Parking was easy on the areer or near by parking garage. Likes the historical theme to the room.

The location was perfect! The hotel is nuzzled in between a couple good restaurants and pubs across the street. The hotel is nice and clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

Yes there's an elevator. We found a spot to park down the street. They also have parking nearby for a charge.

Yes it is. We walked to the Pavillion for a concert and is only maybe 10-15 minute walk...uphill. Not a hard walk though.
