Site management: Within 20 minutes of my original email inquiring whether there were any rooms available last-minute, David (owner) had my room booked and I had an e-mail with a confirmation# and directions to the B&B. Wonderful on-line service. I texted him our expected arrival time and he greeted us in the parking lot (behind the house - you don't have to park on the street) and he carried my bag in and gave us a tour of the house and the keys to the house/room. He even gave us suggestions on where to go eat and just how to get there.
Location: 2 blocks off Broadway on Capitol Hill. The house sits mid-block on a nice quiet residential street and is within a very short walk (less than 10 mins) to all the wonderful happenings on Capitol Hill/Broadway. This B&B is also very close to major hospitals (Swedish, Harborview, Virginia Mason, etc) as wel as the downtown area.
Room: We stayed on the 3rd floor in the "Topaz" room which has a queen and a twin bed as well as a private bathroom. The room was very clean and uncluttered which I personally liked very much that it was basically a sleeping room and that there was no additional seating in the room - it sort of forces you to be a bit more social and go downstairs to mingle and wander the house (but again, that's my own taste when staying at a B&B). The twin bed is a gorgeous sleigh bed and according to my daughter, VERY comfortable and warm. The queen bed was extremely comfortable as well - there is even a skylight right above the bed to let in the morning light...or view the stars if it's clear enough. The room has a built in window seat and the woodwork is just gorgeous! My only complaint about the room would be the bathroom. They left the original feel of the entire house and have decorated it pretty much to period (furniture, carpeting, lighting, etc) and then in this room there is a bathroom right out of 1985 - it was disappointing BUT the water was hot and the toilet worked which is great so it's just more of an overall aesthetics-thing for me.
Breakfast: The food was absolutely delicious!! When I booked the room, David asked if there were any diet restrictions and they accomodated ours without issue. The breakfast of the day: veggie omelets and they were wonderful!! I woke up to the smell of coffee brewing (our room was on the 3rd floor) and that was just a perfect way to start the day.
For the price we paid, the comfort of our room an the customer service we received I would book this B&B again and again! Thank you for a wonderful stay!
