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
My husband and I stayed at the hotel for our time in Camden during our Honey Moon. It truly exceeded our expectations. The rooms were a great size with such comfortable beds and luxurious details. We loved spending time on the balcony overlooking the water. The staff gave great recommendations. The service at the rooftop bar was our only complaint - a bit disorganized. Would definitely come back!
I would say this was the nicest room we have stayed with fireplace and 2 bedrooms and a balcony overlooking marina. The hotel is very cozy itself and located in the center of Camden. perfect place to stay
We visited the rooftop bar at 16 Bay View Hotel on our recent stay in Camden. What a fun relaxing place. Due to the limited seating we sat with other couples. (The hostess will ask if it is ok you are at no time obligated to say yes) but what great way to meet people. The drinks are as amazing as the view! We had the pleasure of meeting the bartender Marcus who is not only friendly but quite funny as well. He is very knowledgeable about the liquors served and does very well crafting new drinks. This is a must when visiting Camden.
This hotel was truly amazing. Rooms were so comfortable and well decorated with little details that made our stay that much more special. I loved the fireplace, huge comfortable bed, small balconies, heated floors and bathtub. Hotel was centrally locates to all restaurants, stores and the docking area. Roof bar was also definitely a plus. Would 100% recommend to anyone staying in Camden.
Overall, we had a great experience here. The staff is especially friendly and helpful. When we arrived, after a long drive, we enjoyed chocolate chip cookies and tea from the lobby, while sitting out on our balcony overlooking the harbor. Our room was attractive, the bathroom was modern, and the balcony was great. The room rate includes a very nice breakfast in the bar. Before dinner, we had drinks on the roof deck with a great view of the sea. We were able to use the computer off the lobby to get some work done. The hotel is right in town and we were able to walk everywhere in Camden from there. I would definitely stay there again.
