If you like squeaky clean rooms with quasi-vintage decor this is the place for you. Not your typical bland Motel 6. On the other hand, it manages modern appointments like Wi-Fi, LED TV and basic kitchen appliances, so not a rustic Victorian hole in the wall. We had a mini suite--bedroom separate from the living room/kitchen--so plenty of room and privacy if needed.
I found the king sized bed comfy, the curtains thick enough to sleep in and the bathroom modern and ultra clean. So a very comfortable room to sleep and hang out in. We had a corner unit with a view of the street and parking lot. Not very inspiring and the room was stuffy when the sunny, requiring opening of all the windows.
I've stayed at Port Townsend many times these past 25 years and while the Bishop is among the nicest hotels, I prefer a room on the waterfront with a view of Port Townsend Bay. My first pick is the Belmont Inn. I don't care if it's rustic and not as clean. Being a few feet from the lapping waves, breathing fresh air and hearing gulls cry over Union Wharf keeps me at my open window for hours. So while the Bishop is great I only stay there when the Belmont is full.
Incidentally, the Bishop is lacks an elevator and should be avoided if you can't handle two or three flights of stairs.
