16 Bay View
What We Love
- A new boutique hotel in a renovated industrial brick building, with breakfast and welcome treats
- Staying at the most highly anticipated luxury boutique hotel in the area
- Enjoying your complimentary breakfast, served buffet-style
- Trying out the shops, galleries, restaurants and schooner charters of this iconic resort town
Camden, Maine, has long been a sought-after resort town. Often referred
to as the Jewel of the Maine Coast, it’s drawn exuberant vacationers
since the 1880s, and its popularity skyrocketed shortly after one
enterprising hotelier in that decade opened a collection of summer
cottages. Watch the city’s now-thriving culture of hospitality continue
to evolve and grow at 16 Bay View, Camden’s most highly
anticipated luxury boutique hotel of 2016.
Just like Camden in
the 19th century, when the now-iconic destination was a shipbuilding
hub, the property builds on an industrial foundation. The owners have
taken a 20th-century brick property and renovated it into a comfortable,
stylish getaway. You’ll enjoy a gas fireplace in your room, a panoramic
harbor view from the rooftop, a daily buffet breakfast and fantastic
proximity to the best there is to do. After all, the hotel’s done more
than just put its finger on Camden’s pulse; with an address on
restaurant- and shop-lined Bay View Street, it’s cut right to the area’s
Rooms and suites
There are 21 accommodations at 16 Bay
View, each designed with your luxury and comfort in mind. Enjoy
top-of-the-line touches in each, like a cozy gas fireplace and a
spa-inspired bathroom with a walk-in shower, radiant floor heat, a
two-sink vanity and a freestanding soaking tub. Bay View Street
King rooms are found on the second and third floors and offer views over
lively Bay View Street (perfect for people-watching). Executive rooms,
which come with either one king or two queen beds, are located on the
second floor on the property’s harbor side, which means you’ll have
partial views of the Camden Hills and Camden Harbor. For optimum
luxury, the high-ceilinged Executive King suites, also located on the
second floor of the harbor side, boast a bedroom and a separate sitting
area, which includes a pull-out sleeper sofa. Your fireplace may be
double-sided, or you might have two separate ones. You’ll also have the
added perk of an extra 40-in. TV.
Camden’s coastal culture with ease from 16 Bay View, which is located
just steps from the water and on Bay View Street. This thoroughfare
features a number of the town’s most beloved shops and restaurants,
including Owl and Turtle Bookshop & Cafe and Natalie’s Restaurant.
In winter, visit the Camden Snow Bowl – the East Coast’s only ski resort
with ocean views – and when the weather’s nice, consider embarking on a
schooner ride around the bay. Depending on the time of year, you may
also be able to catch a show at the Camden Opera House or a fun event,
like the local restaurant week or thrilling windjammer festival.
How to Get There
Loved this place. Our room was perfect. We had a balcony on city side and on harbor side. Our view was not full on bay, but beautiful anyway. The rooms are 5 star. Stylish and comfy.Staff were all kind and helpful, Due to bad weather overnight (including wind) for both nights we stayed rooftop bar was closed. But I did get to go up and see it. Amazing views. We loved Camden. Wanted to stay longer. Next time:) Sharon and Nick
The suite was gorgeous, with a gas fireplace visible from both the bedroom and the living room. The living room was very accommodating with a comfy couch and sitting chair. The bathroom was enormous with double vanity sinks. The shower looked complicated, but was one of the easiest and most enjoyable I have seen. Continental breakfast was quite good. There can be a little street noise from the neighborhood dive bar and there wasn't always someone around at reception, but those are very minor criticisms.
Tracy could not have been nicer at
The front desk! We were a bit surprised as our room was noisy - across from ice machine and
Housekeeper room. And we felt the room was
Extremely small yet with a very nice bath/shower and comfy bed.
We love Camden and usually rent a home
In summer. Just a bit disappointed that the
Accommodations weren’t what we expected.
We love Mid-coast Maine and will be back!
