#StayHere: Fab Whitehall Hotel in Camden, Maine!
The Whitehall Hotel is Maine’s Summer Place!
I recently visited Maine for the first time and absolutely loved it! I had a great time exploring L.L. Bean country (lol), sampling the fab snacks, taking in the beautiful scenery and staying in the fabulous hotels and inns. I had the opportunity to stay in the gorgeous Whitehall hotel.
The Whitehall Hotel is a fabulous boutique hotel in Camden, Maine. The hotel has a little poetic and Hollywood history. Poet Edna St. Vincent Millay was discovered at a party at the hotel after reciting one of her poems. A guest was so taken t with her poetry that they sponsored her education at Vassar. She later went on to become one of America’s favorite poets. The iconic movies ‘Peyton Place’ (1957) with Lana Turner and Stephen King’s ‘Thinner’ (1996) were both filmed at the hotel.
Whitehall is affectionately called ‘Maine’s Summer Place’ and the interior perfectly blends everything that makes Maine a beautiful destination. I love the non-traditional lobby. We should actually call it a welcoming area because it’s more than just a lobby. It’s a place where guests can lounge, read, relax and play piano (lol). The guest rooms are a unique and fabulous mix of elements that make Maine unique.
Unique Features Make the Whitehall Hotel Home Away From Home!
What I absolutely loved about my suite was the separation of the shower and sink & toilet. They are in their own rooms on opposite sides of the suite. This is genius (IMO) and in the morning when your rushing to check out, you don’t have to wait for your traveling partner to finish to use either facility. You both have separate space to do whatever is needed. I’ve never seen this in a hotel suite/room before and I love it.
Other fabulous in suite conveniences include: in-suite Keurig machines, iPhone/iPad charging stations in each room, onsite restaurant & bar, outside lounge area with fire pit. Whitehall also offers guests complimentary wifi and free parking. What’s not in each room/suite? A telephone! Rooms are for relaxing and rejuvenating, not talking on the phone (lol).
Whitehall is a great destination for couples or singles traveling. I’m sure they have suites to accommodate families but the vibe is just more couple and singles focused (IMO).
It is a gorgeous hotel, perfect for a weekend getaway in Camden especially in the summer and fall. It’s affectionately known as Maine’s summer place and I totally understand why (big smile). Before you check out, stay for breakfast and be sure to ask for the delicious salsa frittata! #Delicious #FabFood
