Hotel in BIA under new management; New name, big changes planned

For years, the hotel that is connected to Bangor International Airport, via a large glass walkway, has been called the Four Points by Sheraton.

But come next week, that will change.

“The Bangor Aviator,” as it is planned to be called, will also get a new look and feel when the building receives a facelift this spring.

A social media post from this weekend, on the Four Points Facebook Page, detailed exactly what’s in store:

“This spring, the lobby, restaurant and meeting rooms will be renovated with an aviation theme. Godfrey’s Grille will now be known as Tailwinds Grille and Lounge.”

Along with updating its facilities, The Bangor Aviator is also getting new management…well, new to the role, but not to the business.

“We are also delighted to announce that Valerie Cross has been promoted to General Manager, a well-deserved promotion after 23 years of hard work and experience including reception, sales, front office, revenue and management. social media, and most recently in Hospitality Manager where she managed the hotel through Starwood’s transition to Marriot, and through the pandemic with a steady hand and with great success.”

New Castle Hotels & Resorts of Ridgefield, CT has owned this building for 40 years, when it was first known as the Bangor Hilton.

When asked in the comments section for a few details on what will remain and what will happen with regards to the renovations, the management team responded with this:

“We will have a lot more freedom to make the hotel truly unique. We have big plans planned!”

Look for work to start this spring.

Stay at this Maine Airbnb with a caboose

This train isn’t going anywhere and that’s fine with us.

Wow, take a look at this Airbnb listed at $140 a night Knox, just down the road in Waldo County. This cool and unique little setting including a cabin and caboose is located on farmland and can accommodate up to 8 people. With 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms, it’s listed at $140 a night and looks like it would be a lot of fun.

The caboose itself was a working train car and part of the Maine Central Railroad until 1992. Imagine the railroad workers who stayed there and the miles it racked up all over Maine.

How can you not love a stay where there is a good chance you can interact with an emu and a Great Pyrenees Belly dog?

And the caboose seems to be very handy if you have kids, who can sleep in it while you have the cabin all to yourself!

95% of guests who have stayed here gave it a 5 star rating, so sign us up! Let’s take a look.
