Nice location, great view of the water with close proximity to the pier for walking. The restaurant was good and the beds comfortable. Bring ear plugs, a sound machine or be a heavy sleeper because it is Right by the train tracks and they run all night.

We celebrated our 31st Anniversay at The Chrysalis Inn recently. We had a king room with a beautiful view of Bellingham Bay. The room was very well appointed. Highlights included the window seat which was a great place to sit at read, the two person soaking tub which also had a view of the bay, Keenan's restaurant which has a... More

We stayed here for my cousin's wedding - it's a very beautiful hotel with an excellent view of the water. However, it is a bit pricy. Parking is very safe here however, which I appreciated. They also have a very nice restaurant with a fantastic view of the bay.

The rooms are wonderful and great views of the bay. Window seat for reading, watching the passing boats or just a nap. Wonderful Spa, happy hour on the back patio was very refreshing. Close to Fairhaven and some great restaurants. The place to stay in Bellingham.

Everything from the moment you arrive here, to the moment you leave is about as good as it gets. Reception was excellent, with its own welcoming dog, who sadly was feeling a little unwell, having just seen the vet and been neutered! Open airy welcoming reception area with great views over the bay. Our room, number 309, a corner one,... More

We had a lovely view of the San Juan Islands from our King bed room. There was a long window seat and I spent hours on it looking at the view, reading and doing needlework. Yes, the trains go by regularly, but the hotel warns you of this and provides ear plugs. I'm a very light sleeper and the trains... More
