I cannot believe it's taken me this long to write this glowing review of Hotel Ballard. We stayed there back in March for my partner's birthday. We had been wanting to check it out and decided to stay in our home city for the celebration. We were greeted with open arms and huge smiles when we arrived. The front desk staff was genuine, kind and incredibly delightful to speak with. The gentleman checking us in was kind enough to upgrade us to a courtyard suite. We were a touch early for check in so they said they would let us know when the room was ready. I remembered that Stoneburner was off the lobby so we opted for a cocktail.
Just a short time later, they came into the bar to hand us our room key. Nice touch! We had no idea, but the courtyard suite was on the roof top. We were thrilled! Despite the clouds and touch of drizzle, it was great to exit the elevator to that view. Our room was wonderfully appointed. We entered into a sitting area with a fireplace. Such a treat! The second area contained the large and perfectly comfortable bed. The bathroom was a real surprise. It was huge! A free standing tub and separate shower. The amenities were Molton Brown, our favorite.
Each and every time we entered and exited the hotel, we had a delightful encounter with the staff. They truly cared about our stay and our happiness. It was a fabulous feeling. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone from out of town or those, like us, who want a local getaway in a fantastic area for shopping and dining. We will return! Kudos to the entire staff!
