I was traveling to Seattle for work + fun, and wanted to venture outside of the typical downtown tourist scene. I researched many neighborhoods, and found that Capitol Hill was a trendy, fun area for young people. Only problem is, the neighborhood doesn't allow hotels! This is initially why I wanted to stay at the Gaslight Inn.. just for a place to sleep in a hip neighborhood.
HOWEVER! The Gaslight Inn is so much more than a typical B&B. Immediately when you walk in, you feel at home. The craftsman-like decor, beautiful accents, and cozy fire are so lovely. Additionally, Bennett, the owner, was an absolute delight. He's very gracious and accommodating.
I highly recommend staying at the Gaslight Inn for both location and the lovely atmosphere. It's a place to stay when you want to feel at home away from home!
Words I'd use to describe the Gaslight Inn:
