The Palace Hotel was a fun experiment for us. Centrally located in historic Port Townsend it is an easy walk to restaurants, shopping, the harbor & the historic upper hillside. It is beautifully decorated, clean & friendly. We enjoyed having a small kitchen area where we were able to prep some easy, quick foods even though there was no stove. Our room wasn't huge but the very high ceilings made it seem much bigger. Great bed, too. It was a bit noisy at times & the lack of an elevator could be a hardship for some but I prefer it's charm to any chain motel.
