When we got on the ferry in Seattle we did not know where we would be staying that evening. As I browsed through my AAA book and some maps of the Olympic peninsula I decided Port Townsend might be an option for a couple of days. What a great decision. I called The Swan from the ferry and after exploring options of rooms and their other property, The Bishop, with Dan we decided on a 2nd floor at The Swan. I asked for 2 cereal bowls and when we arrived there was a basket awaiting with wine glasses, plates, utensils - what a pleasant surprise. We are light eaters & do cereal and coffee in our room when possible. There is a frig and microwave in the room. Linda was on duty and was a wonderful resource to laundry facilites (Carol's heading out of town), sights and restaurants. Our room was on the 2nd floor (A5) and was initially a tad small (after a suite in Seattle), but soon became "cozy". We sat on the shared balcony and enjoyed hanging out on a late sunny afternoon. The office has a PC for guest use which is convenient to check emails, TripAdvisor reviews, and weather. Across the street towards the water is the Velocity coffee shop which opens at 6:30 a.m. for coffee. Great place to "wake up", read the paper and enjoy the local buzz. You can walk to most restaurants and bars and shops. Could have stayed longer in Port Townsend if there was not so much to see around the state. Good jumping off point for the National Park & Hurricane Ridge.
