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!

We spent one night here after Thanksgiving .. we would have stayed more than a night but at $300/night we were taxed enough. We had a great stay, the staff was very friendly and welcoming. Probably the friendliest people we met in town. The included breakfast was probably the best hotel breakfast we've ever had. Our "suite" was really just... More

This was a great stay. The employees were so friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was really good especially the bacon. I would highly recommend staying at Friday Harbor House. Off street parking also a plus.

Very pleasant staff, with well designed rooms and a wonderful complimentary breakfast buffet in their beautiful dining room. The views are incredible and everything in town is an easy walk but the hotel is still reasonably quiet.

I can not say enough about the staff at Friday Harbor House. Of course the room and views are lovely and more than that the staff are so naturally hospitable and interested in your well-being. Let me begin with the phone call about my inquiries of the island; Carissa set the pace by taking the time to not only answer... More

The Friday Harbor House is a great place to stay as it is located just a few yards from the ferry dock and within walking distance to restaurants and entertainment. We had a room with a view of the harbor and a cute deck. The rooms are large and very clean. Breakfast was included and delicious. A friendly staff made... More

Fantastic views, fabulous room, friendly staff. Loved the cozy gas fireplace. Beds super comfy and the whirlpool in the room a luxurious treat! The Continental Breakfast is the best I have ever experienced in a commercial hotel. Homemade granola, light, fluffy and delicious frittatas and fresh fare from local farmers grace this bountiful morning feast. Happy hour plates are also... More
