First, if you have decided you are going to stay at this hotel DO NOT let them put you in room 106. Room 106 is directly above the Parking Garage, and the door will be going up and down all day and all night, about every 15 to 20 minutes until after 2am, and it will sound as if it... More

This hotel is quiet, peaceful and relaxing. I had read other people's reviews about railroad noise and was a little concerned but it was minimal and frankly, the view of the water and the close access to Fairhaven as well as Bellingham made it well worth it. The staff was friendly, the rooms were clean and lovely and I enjoyed... More

My sister and I spent two nights, they were very kind to us even though we were travelling with a young child, who was not on best behaviour. Rooms were impeccably clean. No bad smells or "air freshener" types of smells.The bath was amazing (huge and relaxing) The surroundings were tranquil and we all had a great sleep. The rooms... More

The rooms were great, the service was great, the view was great, the breakfast was good. The only problem was the fact that the train travels about 6 feet away from the hotel.

I recently took my daughter to this hotel for her birthday. On first impression, it's beautiful. Lovely entrance, nice staff, large suite. BUT when I got to the ear plugs, lovingly placed on my nightstand, I paused. Yes, there is a train. MANY trains, roaring by all through the night, blowing their horns and basically keeping my up ALL night.... More

We recently stayed at the Chrysalis after an absence of several years. Although i would still recommend it there are some drawbacks. The positives : The rooms are lovely, done in restful earthtones with comfy beds and a very nice bathroom. However, prices have gone up significantly and I think a bit overpriced now given they are pretty much on... More

We actually went to the hotel with great hope of being peaceful, relaxed and not having a single issue. Well after our first night we found a BIG spider web from one end of the wall to corner of the wall. It was so close to the bed, it was GROSS! We never noticed it on our first night we... More

Next to the bed we found an uncommon item: earplugs. During the night we discovered they were for the trains passing literally right next to the hotel. BUT let me tell you the rest. We got a corner suite and it was stunning. Bathtub could fit a whole family. Bed was incredibly comfortable. The view is simple and beautiful, there's... More

My husand booked a stay at this property to do something special to celebrate my Birthday. It was a surprise and I didn't know I was staying here until we actually arrived. Bearing in mind that I'm a former travel agent and have stayed in numerous amazing resorts, my husband really did his research to ensure that this place would... More

Went here with my wife for a birthday/Valentines day. We had a wonderful time. The location is great with views of the bay, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the spa was great. The steam room was worth mentioning on it own because of the cleanliness as well as the change room and showers. Located in the Fairhaven area... More
