We always enjoy going to Port Townsend for it's interesting little shops. This was the first time we stayed at a hotel in the center of town. One thing we learned; go to bed early because sleeping in is virtuously impossible. At around 8 PM (on a weeknight) this town became strangely quiet. We were pleasantly surprised at how quiet it was as we drifted off to sleep with plans to sleep in. Wrong! We spent 2 nights there and at 5 AM both mornings; the seagulls began their wake up calls, followed by very loud delivery and garbage trucks.
The hotel has personality and intrigue. Each room has its own charm. Our room had a very comfortable / albiut, very squeaky bed...brings to mind the true feel of a brothel / turned hotel.
One drawback; They warned us ahead that we would need to climb 3 flights of stairs to our room. What surprised us was, the height of the ceilings made the ascent feel like at least 5 flights.
But, over all, it was a great visit.
