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... More

Follow the excellent direction to the Hotel right on the water. Our suite was amazing with a fireplace, living room, bedroom and spa. Although there is a bar and restaurant on site, we chose to eat at Hearth Fire for dinner and breakfast at the hotel restaurant. Beautiful quiet location, amazing staff, treat yourself and get away .

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!

Great hotel, Great location. Amazing rooms. We stayed in the Sunset Suite... terrific. Only negative is the bar; which for some reason they decide to close at 9:00 despite having a full room. Second time in three weeks staying there the bartender closed it down with a full bar and folks continuing to come in. Seems like a waste, and... More

This hotel is in a marvelous location just blocks from the village downtown area and on a peninsula so it has sunset views from all the rooms on the harbor side. The rooms on the upper floors have the views. There is underground, secure parking and there is a restaurant on the property. Rooms are beautiful with fireplaces and a... More

This is a great hotel, lots of character, lots of neat small touches to make you feel at home. I can highly recommend this place. Great staff and service too. Location is perfect and try to get a room with harbor view.

Rooms were clean , beds comfy , staff pleasant but for 200.00 + for a off season room I did not not expect to be ankle deep in fetid water whilst taking a 4 minute shower due to a clogged drain immersing me in decades of organisms.

We were planning to book Hotel Bellwether in July for our small wedding. We wanted to book the lighthouse suite ($500 a night) and so were excited to check out the amenities. We were so disappointed to hear all the noise from the lobby, conversations from neighboring rooms and the jacuzzi tub running above us all night. We booked a... More

There was nothing wrong with the hotel I was just expecting a little more considering the price for the room. The hotel is located outside the of the downtown core and is isolated from the restaurants and bars that Bellingham has to offer.
