My husband booked a suite for two nights in this hotel. Before arriving, I had no idea what to expect. However, when we walked into the room, I was really happy that we got a balcony facing the sea. This hotel is beautifully decorated and classic. Our room was clean, comfortable, and spacious. Before entering the bathroom, there was a...

To margarita_red2006, Thank you for reviewing your stay with us in early June. Thank you for your detailed and thorough review. Since you have stayed, we recently updated our WiFi network, and it is functioning as it should, strong signals throughout the building. I am so glad that you had a pleasant experience in the Lighthouse Bar & Grill too!...

This hotel is a hidden gem. It's tucked away and such a pleasant surprise! Absolutely charming place that is nicely decorated and has a great feel. Beautiful view and great food next door. Have a great dinner and come back to your room and watch the sunset from the porch (or the tub).

Spent one night at Bellwether to explore the Bellingham area. Brought our bikes to ride out to town, and ride the seawall. Lounge and restaurant were great. Customer service over the phone and in person were exceptional. Only complaint is we had to bring the kids, who said "what no pool?" Great couples getaway from Vancouver.

The Bellwether, Bellingham…Beautiful - a hotel of classy elegance What a great place to spend a few days. We arrived in Bellingham (after a seamless Canada/USA border crossing) at 9:30 on Friday morning. Obviously, a little too early for check in but Kaly (at the front desk) happily stored our luggage and sent us off exploring the Bellingham area with...

To itsrkkishore, Thank you for this short and sweet review.

We stayed here while on a visit to Western Washington University. I sure hope our daughter chooses Western so that we can justify returning to this awesome hotel! Scenery here, of course, is very nice. We didn't have an ocean view room, but still we had a view of the city and the harbor. I would choose that again. In...

An incredible waterfront luxury property with a wonderful happy hour in the bar topped only by the outstanding menu and delicious dishes in the dining room. What separates this property from any other is the staff that makes you feel like royalty during your stay and, when you leave, counting the days until you can get back again!

We stayed in a deluxe suite and it had enough room for a football team, well it seemed like it. The view overlooking the bay was astonishing. We hardly heard any noises which made for a nice relaxing weekend getaway. Itwas the perfect home away from home!
