For a luxury accommodation costing over $200 a night, a room at The Chrysalis is comfortable enough and the staff are friendly enough. But when there is no complementary breakfast and the in-room snack-basket has a price-list with at least a 200% mark-up (often included as freebies at other luxury establishments), and when the walls are accoustically permeable to the...

We went for drinks one night and had such a lovely time went back for breakfast the next day. We ordered the French Toast. While the dish looked lovely, the bread wasn't really soaked very long so it really tasted like grilled bread and not like french toast. Which was a bummer because the coffee's we ordered were scrumptious!!!!!.....My girlfriend... More

Went here for a birthday celebration with several friends. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Website doesn't list all the choices for rooms as there are rooms with two beds and Bellingham Bay view. Spa services are good, but book ahead as the spa is busy. Dinner at restaurant was good, spectacular sunset. Our group had crab canneloni (very rich), scallops,... More

I stayed here with my daughter for a quick overnight Mother's Day. We did a spa treatment, which was wonderfully relaxing---as you would expect. The room had a great view of Bellingham Bay and a gas fireplace for ambiance. The location was within walking distance to everything you would want to see in Fairhaven. There were the trains, but the... More

We were given a gift certificate for the Chrysalis as a wedding present. We booked one night in a view room and ate dinner at the restaurant there as well.

My friend and I could not have been happier with our stay. The massive tub, the day bed in the window, the view, the comfortable bedding, the well designed space -- all of it.

We had a third floor handicap accessible suite. The main room had a sofa, chair and a wonderful window seat looking out on Bellingham Bay. We saw the Alaska ferry loading, shorebirds and lots of people walking on the pier trail. The bedroom, with a king sized bed shared the same view. The bathroom had a walk-in shower and a... More

Enjoyed our stay here. This was the first stop on our honeymoon, so we were willing to stay at a higher status place for the extra money. Wouldn't probably ever go back, but it was fun. Had a corner room with a side view of the bay, and was very comfortable and romantic. Don't take anything in the rooms or... More
