The hotel has an excellent location, close to all of the activities in town. The hotel is directly across the street from the Maritime Center one of the major attractions in PT. The hotel consist of rooms in the main building and several very comfortable and well kept cottages. I had the privilege of staying in a cottage and felt right at home. Very comfortable, nicely decorated in a New England term and gas fireplace to boot! Great place to stay in a very interesting place on Washington's Olympic Peninsula.

Room Tip: The Swan doesn't have a restaurant on grounds but there are at least 10 within strolling distance and free use of the athletic club across the street.

We book the Wheelhouse suite and 2nd floor of the Swan every New Years for a gathering of friends. The staff are amazingly friendly and the Swan meets our needs perfectly as we like to gather in the Wheelhouse for meals and games, but want to have our separate rooms for down time and sleeping. Port Townsend is charming...great shopping and restaurants. The Wheelhouse Suite has an awesome view and we love watching the fireworks from the "Widow's Walk". Thanks to the Swan staff for another wonderful stay!

Room Tip: Wheelhouse Suite is the top floor. It has 2 bedrooms (1 K, 1 Q) and is perfect for 2 couples or a family with kids (2 futon-type beds upstairs, as well). Can't beat the view and ease of walking into PT. The only negative about the Swan is the lower floor rooms can hear the folks above walking, etc (older building with less sound proofing). But, it is worth it!

I stayed at the Swan Hotel during Thanksgiving week. Great location right across the street from a lovely coffee spot (Velocity), free use of the athletic club across the street (Port Townsend Athletic Club), located at one end of the main drag (Water Street) with lots of galleries, other shops, and restaurants. A couple of weeks before my arrival date, Swan sent me a list of restaurants that would be open on Thanksgiving, and then followed a week later with a list of all the local activities scheduled during my stay. Small frig and microwave in my room, and huge bathroom. Would certainly stay again.

Room Tip: Four freestanding cottages are also available with jetted tub and fireplace (more expensive than rooms in the hotel, but still good value.

We stayed at the Swan in May 2013 and had a wonderful stay. The location is ideal. The hosts were very helpful and were able to direct us to lots of places to eat, walk, and shop. Would suggest this to anyone wanting an inn with reasonable rates, a good view, and just all around pleasant surroundings.

Our two night stay in the penthouse was delightful choice for traditional getaway with dear friends of many years. We had great accommodations, beautiful views, space to gather for cooking and eating together, playing games, talking. Walking distance to shops, restaurants & events. The staff was awesome, fun and always helpful. We have already booked again for next year!
