5 Best Hotels In Bangor With Indoor Pools

Looking for some great hotels in Bangor Maine with indoor pools? We’ve got you covered!

There’s nothing quite like a dip in a pool to relax and rejuvenate, and when that pool is indoors, it’s an even more inviting proposition. Fortunately, there are plenty of hotels in Bangor to choose from, so you can enjoy a swim no matter the weather outside.

In a state like Maine where there aren’t long summers, being able to swim indoors is the only way to enjoy the water, especially when it’s really cold outside–which it often is!

Since indoor pools are usually located in the hotel’s fitness center, you often have access to other great amenities like saunas, steam rooms, and hot tubs.
