“Can't Wait to Come Back!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2014

I visited SpringHill Suites while on a 3-day business trip! I checked in at 1:00 a.m. and was immediately impressed with my king room! Not only is it spacious and modern, the alarm clock had an adaptor for my iPhone 5, the room had a separate toilet and sink apart from the main shower and vanity area. There was a very comfortable sectional couch, a desk, a large closet as well as a microwave and refrigerator. There are plenty of towel hooks in the bathroom and plenty of outlets in the room for charging phones, iPads, etc. The fitness room has 7 cardio machines and a nice selection of free weights compared to most hotels. I didn't use the pool or hot tub, but they looked inviting! There's a a restaurant/bar onsite that is open in the evenings and free breakfast as well! The food at the bar/restaurant was very good! The staff was very friendly and accommodating! I would definitely recommend this hotel for business or pleasure!

We loved our brief stay at the new SpringHill Suites in Bellingham. Front desk staff was welcoming and helpful. Breakfast was hearty and varied (with even enough good choices for my vegan teenager). Room was comfortable with a view of the mountains. I don't usually sleep well in hotels but I did on the great mattress here. Pool and hot tub were a welcome attraction for the kids and for me. We will be back.

Beautiful, brand new hotel in Bellingham, which is a perfect location for a day trip to British Columbia, Canada. Walking distance to beautiful Fred Meyers grocery/superstore and restaurants. Shuttle to airport. Loved our stay!!!!

This was our first stay at this Marriott chain and I will certainly look for it in the future. This particular SpringHill is brand new, spotless and shiny. There was a small sitting area separated from the bedroom by a desk and partial wall. Not large but fine for two people. The best thing was the spacious bar and really good menu. It waved us from getting in the car and looking for a restaurant after a long day ferrying around the San Juan Islands. We highly recommend.

Dear mriedlsp,

Thank you for you kind review of our property. Even after 10 months open to have us be reffered to as spotless, and shiny is amazing and thank you for saying so. We hope you trip around the San Juans was good and thank you for your comments about our bar and restuarant. We hope you decide to come see us again soon.

This hotel is very well situated, close to I-5 though we couldn't hear it from the two rooms we've had on the eastern and northern sides. A TownePlace Suites property is being built close to the northern side, not sure how this impacts rooms on that side.

Parking can be tight if the hotel is busy, as it was on our second stay there.

The city of Bellingham is just a few minutes drive away, as is the popular Bellis Fair Mall. There's a Starbucks within close walking distance and a little further there is a well-stocked Fred Meyer supermarket. Convenient for Bellingham airport, for which the hotel had a shuttle service.

Staff are friendly, there is a lobby bar open in the evening. Nice pool area.

Room Tip: Ask about the construction on the north side if you're worried about noise.

I've been traveling to Bellingham for several years. My stays at other hotels have been comfortable, but I miss the amenities and comfort of a Marriott brand hotel. We were pleasantly surprised that a new SpringHill Suites is now in Bellingham. The staff was very pleasant and helpful throughout our stay. The bar area has a great happy hour between 4 and 6. A very friendly staff and comfortable seating area. Everything is brand new.

Room Tip: All rooms seemed to be located in a quite area.

The property is lovely: lounge, pool, full breakfast area and spacious, well appointed guest rooms. The hotel is supporting a major building project next door so the site is a bit hectic and now, the hotel has changed from real silverware and plates to plastic utensils and paper plates. Ever try to eat hot oatmeal in a paper bowl? Doesn't work very well.

The hotel serves a nice balance of business workers and family vacationers. Your stay here will be pleasant although not quite as special and deserving as it was earlier.

Room Tip: First floor is close to pool, lounge and breakfast areas.

Thank you for sharing your feedback and for noting our changes. We did decide to follow the Marriott SpringHill standard with regard to breakfast and move to disposable/compostable items so our main focus could be on taking care of our buffet and give the personalized service to our valued guests. But we do still do have regular bowls- don't hesitate to ask! We hope to see you soon and thank you again.
