Excellent rooms, spa, restaurant...but noisy. It's located just above a major N-S RR line. Funny, there were earplugs in the room on each bedside table. We soon found out why. The trains are loud & frequent. Fine dining room too.

Is important to upgrade to a luxury suite on the water front, as the sunsets are spectacular. The restaurant/ bar, which has seating inside and out provides beautiful views across the water, as well as, remarkably good cuisine. Best hollandaise sauce and scallops perfect.

We celebrated our anniversary at this lovely inn that was built in 2001. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and well appointed. We were fortunate to have a side view room on the top floor which had a nice view of the bay. However we quickly realized that there is a very busy railroad line that runs... More

We just got to stay here for the first time, though we'd had several great meals at Keenan's on the Pier in previous months. We treated ourselves to a corner suite overlooking the bay. It was beautiful, everything to a very high standard. The bathroom was particularly spectacular! The bedroom was lovely with a comfortable bed. We had the windows... More

I visited Bellingham for the first time last week. My relative told me I should stay at the Chrysalis because she loved it. She knows I love a great view. Boy, was she right. We were on the second floor and our room looked onto the bay and the pier. That, plus the stunning weather last weekend in WA made... More

My husband and I have stayed here several times and love it. The rooms are cozy and the view of the water is amazing. You can't beat an afternoon walk on the boardwalk into Boulevard Park. This was the first time we used the spa. Highly recommended! There is train noise and yes you have to park your own car,... More

My friends and I visited The Chrysalis and enjoyed a corner suite. The rooms were nice but the train was noisy in the middle of the night. They do offer ear plugs, but for the price I don't like to have to plug my ears....The jetted tub was very nice in the window overlooking the harbor. All in all I... More

The Chrysalis is a lovely little hotel right on the water! I pulled into the semi-circular driveway waiting for a valet to park my car. When a valet didn't appear, I went inside and was kindly told that I could either park on the street or in the underground lot. I chose the latter. The cons to the underground parking... More

Positive: Beautiful views, nice restaurant and staff. Nice gal at the spa who treated me. Negative: I pulled up in my car, checked in... No one offered to help me with bags or valet. I was told to park on the street or in their garage. I was in town for a wedding and had lots of luggage, etc. Other... More

This place has the nicest staff. In fact, I think Bellingham has the nicest people in the U.S. The only thing startling was the train that rode by but you get used to it. Otherwise, I recommend this place. I didn't have time to take advantage of the spa, but I hear it's top notch.
