My Husband and I won a 2 night stay at a charity auction and were excited to spend our weekend at Hotel Bellwether. We were very disappointed. Luckily the money we spent on this went to charity, but I wanted to warn anyone planning on spending money here. Firstly, the hotel was extremely warm everywhere, next there was mold in... More

I travel extensively in the business I am in and was looking forward to a much needed relaxing stay with colleagues. This was one of the worst hotel experiences I have had across the country. Over priced and incredibly poor customer service. Staff were bordering on rude, did nothing towards making us feel welcome and the entire experience was bordering... More

Was a bit disappointed with the room as we were paying over $300 for 3 people. The bed was comfortable (4 pillows instead of 3 would be nice)-actually the whole room was set up for 2 (even coffee, only 2 had to run out in the morning for another packet., 2 sets of towels, etc.) It does seem like the...

Surprised my wife with our 15th anniversary (she says I never plan anything). The staff was friendly and accommodating. The room was not ready when we arrived which was not there fault as we were early. However, they felt we were inconvenienced and upgraded our room. The view was great. We faced out over the marina with the sound and... More

I stayed at the Hotel Bellwether this month as per a friends request as she was getting married there and I was part of the wedding party. The staff was INCREDIBLY unfriendly, I would even go as far as to say "snobby" in nature. They glared, were unhelpful, unfriendly, and even got after a friend for attempting to get coffee... More

We actually stayed here about 5+ years ago and had a nice enough time. Rooms were large, it was a nice setting. Unfortuantely their unhelpful service makes me never want to stay here again. 5 years ago, we were checking out of the hotel right at the required check out time and about 5-10 min before check out time, just...

Attended a wedding at the Hotel Bellwether, and booked a room in the wedding block at $189. I proceed to check-in, and they tell me that they won't have rooms available until 4pm. Interesting since the wedding is at 5pm, so how are people in the wedding party supposed to get ready? I go back down at 3pm to see... More

We stayed my girlfriend and i in this hotel thinking it will be a nice and a quiet place, but we was very desappointed of all ! The worst was the staff who is the least obliging that I have never seen. For instance, we gave them a small pack of linen for the laundry in the morning (it was... More

This hotel was a perfect overnight getaway for us during the busy last month before my military deployment. The hotel is located close to downtown Bellingham on the waterfront. The hotel and the grounds are beautiful, and the rooms are great. Service is exceptional. The value for the price is excellent. Although the hotel restaurant seemed great, we chose to... More

We chose this hotel for the spa package and it was a very quiet hotel which we enjoyed. The room was great with a fireplace and a balcony facing the marina. The bed was very comfortable and we enjoyed the whirlpool tub.
