Very attentive front desk. Excellent view of sunset across the water and marina. Close walk to downtown. Large clean suite with two bathrooms and separate bedroom. One of the best sleeps we have had traveling.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 21 December 2016 via mobile

We unexpectedly had to stay in Bellingham after our car broke down. The staff, Erin at front desk, Erin in the Dining room and Mark in the dining room (the Lighthouse Bar & Grill) made our stay excellent! The seafood risotto was spectacular! From the phone call to make the reservation with Erin, to her ordering food from the dining...

Spent a romantic weekend night here. Rented the Deluxe Suite with the kitchenette. Though the hotel does not have a bell boy or staff to haul my bag to my room and etc. Frankly I don't need that! Parking is inside a secure garage. This is good! Now to the room... It was great! My nephew and his wife spent...

This was my first time in bellingham and this hotel made it exceptionally amazing! I went with family and would consider coming back many times.

Cozy room, comfortable bed. A great place to get away from it all. The dogs loved it. They have two Electric Vehicle chargers with one being Tesla. Did not use the restaurant. It was a rainy day so just relaxed, looked at cable TV and read.

Cozy room, comfortable bed... The views are wonderful and the location is very romantic. Overall, the hotel feels a little outdated. Somewhat secluded, but you can either dine at the hotel or walk to a handful of other restaurants if you prefer.

Awe inspiring views if you have a western facing room. Even in February we were able to enjoy our balcony for coffee or a glass of wine to enjoy the ever changing marina and bay sights.

At a luxury hotel you should not have to carry your bags yourself with no assistance, you also have to park your car underground. It's easier just to park in front lot weather permitting. The decor is something like Bavarian or a Von Trapp nightmare. Service is nonexistent along with anything to make this place luxury
