“A Perfect Port Townsend Stay!”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

My husband and I stayed here while we explored Port Townsend and nearby areas during the Wine and Cheese Festival. We had #3 and it was perfect and affordable!! We loved the flexibility and independence that this hotel design allowed for us to come and go as we pleased with a simple key code. The cleanliness and comfort was top notch! The set up is perfect for a couple who wants to be in town and close to it all, but feel like a local :) How fun! It really made our entire weekend memorable in a way that a typical hotel couldn't. The hotel is managed very well by Marilou and we tell everyone we know about this little gem. Well done, Washington Hotel - we look forward to our next visit which I just finished booking for Brewfest! You were the first place I checked for availability!

Room Tip: Everything is great!

My boyfriend and I just stayed at the Washington Hotel for a night. We went out of town for a short trip from Seattle and I found this hotel on Trip Advisor. It was super clean, easy to find and centrally located.The private entry without passing checkout was nice- as we could come in late or early and not bother anyone. It felt both private and welcoming. The manager was very nice and friendly which just added to the charm of the place. We would definitely recommend this hotel if you are ever in Port Townsend!

We stayed here this summer for a brief stay and wished we were staying longer. The hotel itself was small and felt intimate and very private. Everything we could have wanted or needed was there. We like the fact that we did not have a key to keep track of, the price was great, the proprietor was accessible for any questions, and the location was exactly what we were looking for in the center of this charming town. Our room was clean and spacious, well-appointed, and very homey. Our visit to Port Townsend was truly enhanced by our accommodations - would highly recommend this hotel, and, should we be out this way again, will certainly stay here again.

We had a terrific one night stay in "Room 2" at this "hotel" and were only sorry that we weren't staying longer. The room was spacious, very clean, quiet, modern, beautifully decorated and conveniently located. We couldn't have asked for anything more. Unlike a conventional hotel, The Washington Hotel has only 4 rooms (a positive in my book) and there are no on-site staff. Lack of on-site staff does not, however, mean no service-- as I found out when I accidentally left my iPad charger in the room on departure. When I realized my mistake upon reaching our next destination 50 miles away, I called Marilou. She said she had been trying to reach me and that she would mail the charger back to my home (which she did at her own cost). I would definitely stay at the Washington Hotel again if visiting Port Townsend and recommend it to others.

Hello!

Thank you for your fantastic review of the Washington Hotel! When we do find items left behind, we try to catch you before you leave town. I'm glad we connected and you now have your phone charger back safely, no problem mailing small items without charge.

I am very proud of the hotel with it's growing reputation. The location with our own private parking area and being one of the few modern places is really unique for downtown Port Townsend.

Thanks again and I hope to hear from you soon!

This hotel is centrally located near the water, the farmers' markets and the many quaint shops in town. We were delightfully surprised by the "European" style rooms, most comfortable beds, along with a little sitting room. The bathroom was large and exceptionally clean. We enjoyed the quietness of the hotel, which is a bit like a bed and breakfast (but no breakfast). In addition, there is a small kitchenette with use of a microwave, etc., and amenities like wine glasses, books, a full-size coffee maker. When travelling to Port Townsend again, we will definitely book at the Washington Hotel1

Room Tip: #2 was wonderful

Thank you for your great review of the hotel. Room #2 is very spacious and can sleep up to five people with the two queen beds in the main room and the twin sofa bed in the sitting room. I always appreciate guests commenting on the little things that we have done like the glass stemware and mugs etc. to make your stay enjoyable.
It is always a pleasure to hear that you will be returning sometime in the future.
Thank you again!

We stumbled on this amazing place off the internet eccidentally while passing through PT. Marilou was sweet, courteous and let us know @ the lobby-less hotel, keyless check-in and detailed location. We jumped at the low price and central locale and were so surprised at the modern rooms, quaint detail, comfy beds ( OMG! The linens!!!) and HUGE bathroom. We traveled up and down the Oregon/Washington/Cali coast and this was BY FAR the most amazing hotel. Romantic, intimate, fantastic.

Room Tip: Our rrom had a sitting room, giant bathroom and perfect parking.

WOW! You stated "By Far the Most Amazing Hotel" "Romantic, Intimate, Fantastic" I am totally speechless! Thank you, Thank you!
I put a great amount of effort personally to ensure that the suites are what I would want when staying at places and it certainly is clear that you enjoyed my efforts.
In traveling myself, I can honestly say I have not found a hotel such as the Washington Hotel. It is the unique size that gives it the quiet intimate feel and the location perfect to enjoy the many shops and restaurants.
Thank you again for taking the time to post such a Fantastic review. I hope to hear from you again very soon.

I visit Port Townsend very often and bring a lot of business to the community because we conduct workshops here and people from all over the world attend. This is one of the hotels I always recommend on the information sheet we send to participants.

The hotel is small (consists of 4 rooms) and all the reservations are handled through email with contact by phone if needed. Marilou has always been very responsive and helpful especially when I need to move rooms or change dates. Prior to arriving you are sent a set of codes for the front door and your own room. Once in the hotel, you will probably never see anyone else who is staying there as it is quiet and guests rarely bump into each other. The beds are comfy and the televisions have recently been replaced. The rooms are nicely decorated with books lying around for you to read. Parking is off the street at the back of the hotel and once you park, you won't move your car as there is much to see within walking distance. If you run into issues, Marilou is just a phone call away.

Last week I had five people from our workshop book into this hotel and unlike the service we received at the restaurant Sweet Laurette, the Hotel Washington was a gem. I only hope not too many people find out about this place otherwise I will have a hard time finding a room for myself and our workshop participants :)

Hello.

First of all, Thank you for bringing business to Port Townsend!
I appreciate your positive comments concerning me being responsive to guests. It is my goal to have each guest thoroughly enjoy staying in the hotel, so they will want to return again and again.
Yes, the rooms are quite quiet. I actually had a guest that was convinced that she was the only one for an entire week due to not hearing or seeing anyone.
I receive many compliments about the hardbound books that are placed in all of the rooms, many of them will transport you to various locations around the world.
It is always a pleasure having your group stay at the hotel. Please call me again soon!

Thank you,

Marilou
