Stayed in Port Townsend for only one night. The Swan Hotel is centrally located, right off the marina and very close to downtown. There are many good restaurants nearby. The room itself was good. Size was sufficient, it was clean and comfortable. The only thing to expect is noise from the birds and your upstairs neighbors if you're not on... More

Dear Guest, It is so nice to hear that your experience in our seaport town was a good one. Yes, the feathered locals are quite noisy, so hopefully you took advantage of our complimentary seagull earplugs! Best regards, More

Our family stayed here for a reunion recently and we all loved it here. Our rooms were all very comfortable and we used the penthouse for family gatherings. Penthouse views were excellent of downtown and the water. The kitchen in the penthouse was well-equipped and there was plenty of room there for all of us. We were able to walk... More

We celebrated a birthday at the Swan in Port Townsend. When I mentioned that, the Swan staff supplied a bottle of wine. I loved sitting on the porch of our room and watching the action in the harbor. I didn't have time to use their pass to a nearby athletic club.

I wish I could have stayed more days and will definitely return. This charming hotel was in a great location on the waterfront in charming Port Townsend. My room had a lovely view and shared balcony, was very clean and quite pleasant. Slept very well in comfortable bed.Nice breeze from water cooled things off at night. Some noise from overhead...

We stayed at the Swan Hotel on our way to Canada... Once we arrived at the Swan Hotel in Port Townsend, we realized that we should've booked more nights. The cottage was very nice and well kept. You could that there was someone who cares for this place running it. The overall appearance of the Hotel was very good, the... More

Lodging options in Port Townsend are underwhelming as a general rule ... I do believe that The Swan is your best choice, but it helps if you know what to expect. First, don't expect luxury. The beds are fine and the furnishings quite plain. The bathroom was lackluster and our shower had some leftover hairs in it (ew). They provide... More

Our hotel experience at the Swan Hotel started two months earlier when we booked our room. Francesca was so nice to work with in picking out the room for us, and she is even more lovely in person. We came off the ferry from Whidbey Island and were just a short 5 minute drive to the hotel. What a GREAT... More

Small rooms. When the hotel is full it is NOISY! We so wanted to like this hotel which is right in the old historic district -- walking distance to sweet shops and nice restaurants. On the water. No breakfast. If the place is full it is noisy. Meh!! Ask before you book.

Yes, our hotel is right in the heart of all the action in Port Townsend which can get busy during festivals, family reunions and wedding celebrations. We are glad you enjoyed the location---the Swan Hotel is popular for group lodging and, while not known to be a raucous location, when most of the hotel is allocated to one family in... More

Stayed one night at The Swan. Had 2 rooms with shared porch facing the harbor which was lovely. The room was small but very clean and had all things necessary. The bed was very hard for me but okay for my partner. The television did not work and the staff tried really hard to get it to work for 1... More

We are traveling around the San Juan Islands into Canada. We stayed here one night. The room is a little tight but everything is fairly spotless. It is in a great location within walking distance to several restaurants and the waterfront. It was a very warm day and didn't cool off until early the next morning. With the high temperature...
