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
This hotel is quaint and adorable. The rooms are very spacious with even larger bathrooms. All of the finishes are updated, but still give you that old town feel of the rest of Camden. Each room offers a balcony as well.
The hotel’s roof top bar is a wonderful attraction and the best view of the harbor. They also offer daily wine pairings. The Vintage room offers complimentary continental breakfast every day which is a nice amenity.
The service was lovely and made our experience so special.
My husband and I stayed here with our teen son. Camden is a really charming town.
This hotel was quaint and perfectly located. Great choice for adults wanting an upscale, yet comfortable getaway. Rooms are nicely appointed, and the service is great. So glad we had a chance to visit.
My wife and I were married on The View rooftop area of 16 Bay View this past Friday. The night was perfect. The hotel took every precaution in case of rain, which luckily, held off. The staff was beyond courteous and the food was absolutely delicious. My wife and I love the ambiance of the hotel. We had stayed there prior to our wedding and enjoyed our stay so much, we decided to pursue having our wedding there. The rooms are cozy with fireplaces and beautiful balconies. The bathrooms have large soaking tubs and modern multi spray showers which are awesome to help you relax.
The smallest details such as the fresh delicious cookies and fruit infused water in the lobby add a warm feeling to the already charming decor.
Another small but appreciated detail was that after our ceremony, our flowers were taken and spread throughout the hotel for others to enjoy as well as to serve as reminders of our special night.
Thanks so much for making our wedding an event we will always remember!
