“Fantastic! Won't disappoint.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

This is a pet friendly hotel like none other that we have stayed in. Our pet was greeted at check-in with a gift, a large dog bowl with a bag of treats and a cold bottle of water. The room was very clean and close to a exit that we could walk our pet. For our little dog this was a 5 star plus tail wagging experience. For us the hotel is in a nice safe area, plenty of outside lighting, very modern clean rooms. A wonderful hot shower, a small open lounge at the entrance where we had a nice glass of wine and a large plate of "yummy" nachos made for a relaxing time after our long day of driving. Friendly, helpful staff. This is our place to stay when we come to Bellingham.

My family and I decided to stay here over the busy 4th of July weekend. The rooms were very nicely decorated and well laid out. The small divider in the room does afford some privacy, but we decided to get an adjoining room to accommodate our family better. Except for the occasional noisy kid running down the hall, the hotel was quiet. The hotel was running a free shuttle to see the fireworks so that we wouldn't have to hassle with parking. Breakfast had a good selection of items. Even though it was a busy weekend, they did not run out of food and they had a good amount of seating available. The work out room had a good amount of equipment and the pool/jacuzzzi were small but nice. The hotel will be expanding in fall to offer rooms with actual bedrooms and full kitchens, which will be nice for families. Good value for the money. Since our kid is going to school in Bellingham, no doubt we will be back up to visit and will make sure to stay here again.

Room Tip: Top floor room may be quieter. We were on the 2nd floor and heard some noise from upstairs but not b...

Stayed here with kids and grandkids for two nights. Rooms are very spacious, with a separate sitting area making this a good choice for families. Note this a not a separate room, but a very large room with a divider. But still very comfortable.

The pool and exercise room are both great. They are clean, fresh, and have lots of space. The pool is quite large and the water temp is perfect for kids and adults alike.

There is a large open bar area with a limited but tasty food menu. There is ample comfortable seating or the bar will prepare food for taking up to your room.

Definitely enjoyed our days here. Would choose this one again for a family visit in the area.

Great staff, super nice accommodations, good free breakfast. Close to the airport and you need a vehicle to get you to downtown Bellingham, which is a great area. Marriott is finally moving into Bellingham with this and a Towne Place Suites under construction next door. It was especially nice to be staying in something other than a Best Western for the first time in our daughter's 4 years at WWU.

I frequently stay at Marriott Properties and this new property very tastefully decorated and upon entering was greeted by Guest Service Staff with the quality of service that one always expects.

Our little dog was greeted and given attention with snacks and doggie bowl which was much appreciated. Was surprised however when told us there was a one time charge of 70.00 for the dog to stay. Being tired, I paid the fee however it bothered me, for it did not say it when I booked online. All it said, is that it was a pet friendly hotel.

The room was not prepared for 2 guests. Only half the bed linen was in the closet for the sofa bed. The first night I did mention it to the front desk. The attendant did say she would send it up right away however I said no, as my son was already sleeping. Said Sunday would be fine. We never did get the remainder of the bedding.

The room was very spacious, King size bed and sofa bed. Very comfortable for a 2 day stay. Lots of parking and the breakfast was suffice.

Hotel close to shopping and restaurants which was very convenient as that was the sole purpose of our trip.

Upon checkout it bothered me enough that I had to bring forward to the Guest Service Attendant about the 70.00 fee and how it's not mentioned on their website. One gentleman made the comment to me that kids stay free. I laughed and kept my comment to myself. The Guest Service Attendant was going to look into it and make a recommendation to have it listed on website.

Apart from that our stay was a good one.

Thank you for the visit and for sharing your experience, Colleen. I'm glad your little traveler also enjoyed their stay (and the welcome basket we have for dogs). I'm sorry you didn't see the pet fee beforehand - our intent is not to have any surprises (the pet fee is listed under the 'our hotel' link from our website), but to ensure the next guest - regardless of allergy levels, receives the same impeccably clean and allergen-free space. Thank you again and I hope we can welcome you back very soon!

Tried to find a hotel last minute in downtown Bellingham but were booked out. Decided to give the Springhill Suites, about 3 miles out of the downtown area a try. So glad we did! Rooms were HUGE, brand new and with a great layout (toilet and sink in one area, vanity and shower totally separate). Really comfy bed, super accommodating staff and decent breakfast. Used the free shuttle to downtown three times in our 24 hour stay and never waited more than 15 minutes for the pleasant and conversant drivers to appear. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: If you can get a room off the back of the hotel on a higher floor you might actually get a peek of M...
