This is by far one of the best places I have ever stayed. It’s very clean and elegant and beautiful to look at. The soaking bathtub was a lot of fun. We were on the top floor and had a courtyard which was very charming. The food was pretty good as well. The workers were highly trained and very professional. We will definitely be returning again

We have stayed here several times pre-Covid, and were happy to be able to return once vaccinated. The hotel is spotless, as always, and has all the pandemic-safe adaptations in place: elevators, rooms, hallways, common areas. I was very pleased to find a fresh-air filtration and circulation system in our room.

Love this boutique upscale hotel with the king suites. they’re super cozy and trendy. Love the sliding barn like doors for separation of space. The courtyard suites are all up on the 5th floor with the mezzanine overlooking Ballard and ships. No rooms connect apparently however and due to COVID access to the Olympia Athletic Club is closed to hotel guests.

We were married at the Hotel Ballard Hotel 10/24/15 and returned 10/24/20 to celebrate our 5 year anniversary there too. We had such a great stay! The room was spotless. COVID precautions were obvious, including wrapped/sanitized TV remotes, pens, etc. William and Cody helped me arrange for a room on the pavilion floor, and had a bottle of cold champagne and a sweet card waiting for us. We had a great dinner at Stoneburner (also COVID safe), and spent the next morning wandering through the Ballard Market. It was a great weekend escape. Thank you Hotel Ballard for making our stay so special.

Wife and I stayed her during Covid and had a fantastic time. Had a suite - bedroom and living room that looked over Ballard Street on 4th floor and so cool, so hip, so comfortable could not be better. View of the mountains the waterfront and the street below all full of color and life. Bed very comfortable, bathroom roomy and stylish. Service top notch all around. Stone Burner restaurant below is a great atmosphere was good menu and beverage selection. All around, cannot recommend this hotel enough - especially for the location, the town of Ballard never have to leave to have fun. Covid - everything felt clean and safe. Great great great hotel.
