We needed a mini vacation, so decided to go to Friday Harbor. We chose the Friday Harbor House. I'm so glad we did. It was top notch right from the check in. We had booked a room with a partial view. But when we arrived we had been upgraded to a full view room, at no cost. And what a... More

When other places are upping their breakfast game, the management here is cutting back. Stupid, plastic garbage-producing Keurigs in the guest rooms now; pre-packaged pre-sweetened instant oats; pre-packaged, pre-sweetened yogurts; muffins from a box, fluffy industrial breads. Things at breakfast used to be hand-made, not over sweet, tasty, with good texture. Now mostly I feel like I'm eating from the... More

Friday Harbor House is a small, friendly, place for a luxurious retreat or just overnight. We enjoyed the service and attention, but the room and view even more! I had no idea breakfast was included so that was a wonderful surprise. Excellent food, beautiful surroundings. We even got to watch a bald eagle while we dined!

I would like to thank Morgan for checking us in and for all the great information he provided. We signed up for the fantastic presentation by Chef Aaron with his Holiday Appetizers. Everything he made was delicious. Although, Miles makes the best scramble eggs in the whole world. Normally I would never have touched them but the presentation was too... More

Our first time on the island and we loved Friday Harbor Hotel! Great view of the harbor and ferries, friendly and helpful staff and lovely room. The complimentary continental breakfast was outstanding. Homemade jams and granola were delicious. Great coffee, sausage, bacon eggs with a beautiful view.

We stayed at the Friday Harbor House for three nights in early December. Room 35 was spectacular! The view of Friday Harbor was amazing and beautiful. This hotel is centrally located to get to the downtown area for restaurants and shopping. The room was very clean and comfortable. What made it so special was the gas fireplace and two-person jacuzzi... More

Friday Harbor in winter is a joy! This hotel overlooks the harbor and ferry terminal with wonderful views all around. The staff were most accomadating, friendly and terrific cooks! We rejuvenated in the quiet, shopped without the crowds and generally enjoyed these days before the holidays!
