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.

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...

We stayed one night and it was great. Beautiful room with a comfortable bed and while the room was small, we didn't need more. Front balcony that looked out over the town and on to the ocean. The rooms on the other side of the building are the ones with the views that look out over the marina and ocean.... More

This was my second stay at the Swan. Consistently good. Very clean rooms, nicely furnished and comfortable. Very well located and convenient to the downtown area. Highly recommended of your traveling in the area. Polite and attentive staff. Free WiFi which actually works.

We stayed in the studio first floor rooms. You really can't beat the location. So close to everything! I had a few disappointments though. The rooms are small and hard to maneuver around in with luggage. They are also loud, I woke up early to loud steps from the person staying the room above us. Each step squeaked in the... More

I had room 2 on the first floor--cute and comfortable, but smallish. I was alone, so it was fine, but with two people, it would have been cramped. The chair at the table/desk was most uncomfortable as I sat there using my laptop. The wifi was flawless. Good places to eat and drink are nearby and Fort Worden is only... More

The staff at the Swan Hotel was very friendly and helpful. We stayed at the Swan Hotel for one night only but would have liked to have been able to stay longer. The room was tidy and offered a great view onto the harbor. The Swan Hotel is situated in a great area from which to explore Port Townsend. Reserving... More

We are staying in one of the cottages. My husband and I have been so happy with the cute accommodations. Convenient location to all of Port Townsend's activities. Comfortable beds and sitting area. If we come back to Port Townsend, this is where we'll stay.

My colleague and I had a lovely stay at The Swan Hotel in Port Townsend, WA. We each had a deluxe studio room on the second floor. My room was well appointed, with French doors, bright windows, and a nice view of downtown. The bed was comfortable, and the room also included nice amenities, such as a flat panel TV,... More
