they charge extra for the water view and you get to wake up 3 times during the night to hear the train go by directly under your window. i really do not think the extra for the water view is worth it.

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights and loved the room, especially the huge window seat. We had a king suite on the 3rd floor and while you certainly heard the train it did not keep us up at night. Amazing views and sunset located right on the boardwalk and super close to Fairhaven shops and restaurants. Will...

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 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,...
