“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2013

We have stayed here a few times now and it is always great. Located in the middle of the downtown it is perfectly located. There is off-street parking (rare for a PT hotel), the hotel has been nicely updated, the service is great, and it is quiet and peaceful. We have stayed at just about every hotel in PT over the years and this one is by far the best for price, parking, and location.

Room Tip: They have a great two bedroom suite with a sleepable couch in the living room. We easily slept two...

Hello!

Thank you so much for your wonderful review!

I agree with your comment 100%, it is by far the best for price, parking and location in the heart of downtown Port Townsend.
We are constantly changing the looks of the rooms with carefully selected accents by the owner himself. We want to provide guests with the cleanest, most comfortable and modern rooms in the area.
The parking area has been improved with larger parking spaces. The Wifi has been upgraded to a faster modem.

Thank you again for choosing the Washington Hotel when visiting Port Townsend. I hope to hear from you soon!

This was our first trip to Port Townsend and we are sorry that it has taken us so long to discover this great town! Our accommodations at the Washington Hotel was exactly what we wanted. Super clean and comfortable. Our room (#3) was spacious even the bathroom. I cannot think of anything it lacked and we are already planning a return trip later this year. Thanks Marylou for thinking of the small things which really add up and make your hotel stand out!

For sure The Washington is the best place that I've stayed in Port Townsend. The owner/host/manager has done outstanding work with the decor and the cleanliness is second to none. The workmanship of the work that they have done is of high-quality. I have now stayed at The Washington a few times and have made it my first choice when staying in Port Townsend. The beds are sooooo comfortable. I highly recommend it!

I take pride in keeping the hotel clean and comfortable for all of the guests and appreciate you noting that in your review.

It's always a pleasure to have guests returning, you can be assured that the hotel will continue to be the Best Place to Stay in Port Townsend.

My friend and I stayed the Washington Hotel for just one night and I wish it had been more. It is in a perfect location, right downtown above a bookstore and we didn't move the car the hotel time we were there. The hotel room was furnished beautifully and it was very quiet. I would go there again in a second.

Hello Wendy!

Thanks for recognizing one of the most favorable points of the hotel, Location! We have the greatest location in the heart of downtown, with private off street parking. We have a location that is easily walkable to all restaurants and shopping downtown and to the uptown district.

Having only four mini-suites to our boutique hotel, it is a very quiet atmosphere. Guests always remark how well they sleep because not only the comfortable beds and nice linens, but they slept undisturbed.

Thank you again for taking your time to post a review. I hope to have you return again in the near future!

Thanks to some friends who recommended The Washington Hotel, my friend and I had a great weekend in Port Townsend shopping and eating in some of the local restaurants. The hotel was spotlessly clean, beautiful and in a perfect location to walk around town. The room had a comfortable bed, nice linens and was decorated in contemporary style. I will definitely stay and this hotel again as it is a great value and a perfect location.

We wanted to locate a hotel in Port Townsend that offered separate sleeping areas for two people . . .and which didn't break the bank. We found the charming Washington Hotel -- 4 rooms total. Thankfully it was not "Vintage." We each had our own double bed (in separate rooms) and there was a small sitting area (which included a day bed if needed). We had a fridge, coffeemaker, hair dryer (which we took some time to find). The bathroom was large with ample towels and there was a generous sized closet, as well as a flat screen TV. A stroll down the hall took us to a common area that had a Microwave, ice maker, sink, and some extra supplies. You're not going to cook a meal here, but it is great for warming food. We appreciated having real wine glasses, and opener, and ceramic mugs instead of the usual paper and plastic. We were across the street from a great restaurant - Alchemy - and just a few yards from Fountain Cafe and Silverwater Cafe (local favorites). It was a cozy, comfortable spot where we plan to stay next time we visit Port Townsend.

We stayed in room #4, which has one bedroom with a queen bed and a door that closes, plus 2 other rooms which are open to each other. One of these has a queen bed, the other has a twin sized daybed and a couple of chairs, plus the shared bathroom. There was lots of room for our family of 4. The bathroom is modern and large. The suite is very clean, the beds very comfortable, and it does not smell musty at all. When you first come in the building door downstairs there is an "old building" smell; but it does not continue into upstairs or the rooms at all. Overall a nice, private place to stay.

Hello!
I want to Thank You for your wonderful review of the Hotel and appreciate you stating that it does not smell musty at all. I really try to keep it very clean and aired so that does not happen.

Yes, Room 4 provides a lot of space for a family of four with the sitting room providing the flexibility of not having to sit on the beds to visit.

I hope that I will hear from you again in the near future, have a great rest of the summer.

Take Care,
