What fun to stay in an 1889 Victorian building with a checkered past, its 19 rooms named for the infamous ladies of the night who once worked here. Set on this lovely seaport's main drag, across the street from the bay, the Palace features spacious, ultra-high-ceilinged rooms, nicely kept Victorian furnishings, several comfy sitting areas and yes, a very steep...

The Palace is an authentic Victorian style "painted lady" hotel on PT's most interesting and historic street along the waterfront. Each room is unique, and like all the public areas, furnished in nice period antiques, with lots of lace and quilts. A favorite spot is the 2nd floor library for sitting. However, a lot of the old upholstered furniture isn't... More

I am flat out in love with this hotel, despite the steep stair climb to our amazing Marie's Suite. My husband and I are 65+, so despite gym & yoga, we do have some mobility issues, but great help was available for my overpacked suitcase, so all ended well- very well indeed. Our suite is light filled, charming and yet... More

The Palace Hotel is an interesting hotel. Full of antiques and charm. The doors of the vacant rooms are left open during the day allowing you to take a wander around. The service at the front desk was friendly. Our room, Miss Simone's, located on the third floor was clean but in need of a make over. The carpeting was... More

My wife and I were attending a concert and decided at the last minute to spend the night in Port Townsend. The palace hotel was right downtown, close to everything and the hotel staff were friendly. The room was clean and comfortable. We would gladly stay there again.

This hotel, built in the late 1800's, is very clean and historical. On the main street in Port Townsend, there is plenty of shopping and places to dine. There are 3 levels in this hotel, all stairs. So probably not good for people who cannot climb a lot of stairs. Several rooms have water views and are reasonably priced.

Excellent location on the main strip in Port Townsend. Easy walking distance to restaurants, galleries and shopping. Older hotel with lots of character. Large rooms and bath with 14 ft ceilings. We had a corner room with a view of the harbor. The only cons were the lack of an elevator (we were on the third floor), and it was... More

Since our last stay here which was several years ago, the quality has increased. Our room was incredibly clean and we appreciated the quality and the detail that has gone into the historical look of the place.

Happy we found this hotel. The room was large and very comfortable with a lounge area just outside our door. No breakfast included but didn't really matter as there are lots of little eateries in the town. There was no air-conditioning which could be a problem in the warmer months. Wish we had time to spend more nights there.
