My husband and I spent one night at the Palace Hotel this week. I went onto the hotel website and picked the room I wanted and emailed my request. The room, 9A Miss Rose (all the rooms have names supposedly in the same way they did when the hotel was a brothel in the 1920s-1930s). It had a lovely bathroom... More

This unique hotel is a must stay in Port Townsend. It has a very varied history that includes housing a brothel at one point. The hotel maintains the link to that period by naming some of the rooms after the prostitutes and period furnishings. All the rooms are different. Some have claw foot tubs, others shower stalls with rainshower heads... More

We love visiting places that show us what it was like when the area was settled. Washington still has so many places with preserved buildings and stories. The Palace has been restored very nicely and the brothel theme is a hoot. We checked in early (around 2:30) and most of the room doors were open so we could explore most... More

Not your Mother's Hotel...but could have been! This used to be a prospering brothel in the grand old days of mystic seaports and wild women and song. Now, just a very comfortable home away from home. Just stayed here, again, for my wife's birthday. We were here back in July and had an awesome time with our daughter visiting from... More

Right in the middle of downtown Port Townsend, this was an excellent place to stay. Staff were very friendly and helpful, and the room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. The only downside would be for someone who has difficulty with stairs. There is no elevator and some of the rooms are up several flights.

Loved the location, and the welcome we received at check in. Our lights were on and door opened to welcome us in, As if you were arriving to a small B&B. Lots of welcoming areas to sit and read a paper on a couch, or play Chess even in the main lobby, some guests sat our and enjoyed a bottle... More

My hub and I have stayed at every hotel in PT, and this one, which we finally experienced recently, is by far our absolute fave. The location is perfect, the staff is awesome and the rooms are quaint, clean and comfy. Yes, it's OLD - everything is OLD, (including the mattresses in some cases) but the overall vibe of The...

My boyfriend and I stayed over night at this hotel, very last minute (booked the night before) & we LOVED IT. What a fantastic old building, the history was so interesting and I loved having access to it all. The hotel is in a GREAT location, walking distance to everything downtown. The room was really fantastic. Old brick walls &... More

Although my husband and I stayed only one night. That night was very magical! I loved the trip back in time with the decor. The staff was very friendly and helpful! The stairs aren't really an issue, but then again we don't have a lot of things with us when we travel. Overall will stay here again.

Only stayed one night but would return. The Palace Hotel is a refurbished older building in the business heart of Port Townsend. Comfortable well maintained large rooms with high ceilings, coffee/tea, nice shower and a small water view but it is a "walk up" and we were on the 3rd floor. We were greated by a friendly and very helpful... More
