We had a view out our deck of the marina and Puget Sound
Nothing negative to report. Only positive all around.
After a long and arduous week, my first morning at Hotel Bellwether was truly a refreshing delight! What started the week of my stay, was being unexpectedly and warmly greeted at the lobby door of the elevator in the morning by Biscuit~the resident Golden Retriever. Her exuberance at the appearance of a new visitor was tempered by her good behavior and sweet disposition. The front desk staff, the restaurant staff, and the housekeepers, were also warm and welcoming. Hotel Bellwether was ideally situated with a stunning view, lots of maritime activities, was well as an easy short drive to my favorite place, Fairhaven, and wonderful walking paths in the immediate area.
DVD's were available, but there were no "on demand movies", or premium cable channels.
1. Only one upholstered chair with ottoman -- and two people. My husband had to read and watch TV in straight back chair. 2. Small TV in armoire designed for watching in bed -- difficult to watch from upholstered chair. 3. Jetted tub was so loud you could not hear TV or carry on a conversation. 4. Jetted tub is set so that bather sits facing the shower, and not the TV. 5. Coffee and tea service is provided in the lobby -- until 10 am -- then it's taken away. In a rainy climate, a cup of tea in the afternoon would be welcome. 6. Hotel is a 1 mile walk into downtown -- past 3 recovery missions. We choice this hotel because it was closest to downtown, but not really walkable.
Beautiful hotel on the water. Nice room. Well-appointed spaces.
microwave would be nice price keeps me from coming more often
Location comfort Food staff
Starbucks coffee pods in the room and high quality teas. The proximity to the marina and park allowed for a pleasant evening stroll.
Requested early check in, was put down at end of hallway next to the maids room and an exit door that kept slamming shut. The room was over the garage and you could hear every time it opened and then closed. Very loud.
The view, the room set up, the balcony, and location.
The balcony and the fireplace in the comfortable suite
Room was VERY warm. Even after turning the heat off completely, we still had to keep the slider open on the deck to make it tolerable.
The view of the marina was beautiful.
nothing not to like
beautiful view, awesome soaking tub, comfortable bed, friendly staff, convenient parking - all lovely
The place was noisy at night, did not get a good night's sleep at all due to the noisy people above me, felt like they were playing basketball until about 1:00 am...then at 2;30, someone decided to start up their car and let it warm up for a 1/2 hour right outside my window....so, just got up and started the day...grumpy.....
I loved the area, the hotel itself is very nice, the staff was great...and it was nice meeting Biscuit, the dog...very sweet.
I liked the fact that you had lots of area's to walk to , especially the marina .I also like the fact that it was nice and quiet . Staff were very helpful .
The viewing window between the room and the bathroom is something I could do without. Other than that there is nothing I could or would want to say negatively about the room.
Staff was helpful and accommodating in every way. Location is exceptional and the fact that you can have your dog or dogs with you in an establishment like this is a cut above the rest. Room and view was wonderful.
Can't think of anything.
My experience is a bit different: I am a wheelchair user, so needed a wheelchair accessible room. The bed was too high off the ground for me to transfer. The hotel staff cheerfully removed the bed frame, solving the problem.
No BreakFast Included In Rate. Why Would The Only Window With A View To The Water And Harbor Be A Small Bathroom WindoW Six Foot High?
Bed And The Spacious Room. Balcony With Table And Chairs.
Nothing was subpar at all!
All of the amenities...the bathing acoutrements were wonderful, treat selection, fireplace, patio, bed and bedding, etcetera...simply wonderful!
infrequent train noise
Decor of room, amenities, tv, tub, soaps, fireplace, complimentary water, coffee, proximity of nice restaurants
No transportation.front desk staff does not know the area so of very little help.
I really loved staying at Hotel Bellwether. My room was so comfortable. The bed was so cosy and the pillows and bedding were so soft and comfy. I loved the fireplace in my room and the awesome jet whirlpool bathtub. I also appreciated the fridge and the balcony all to myself. It was a great room. The one thing I thought could be improved at Hotel Bellwether was the customer service. Everytime I entered or left the hotel, no one at the front desk ever acknowledged or said hello to me ....not once. Maybe it is because I am from Texas and it is normal in my experience for people to say hello is the reason I noted this but it did stand out to me. Also, one night when I went into the restaurant one hour before closing time, the server seemed really upset that he would have to serve me. I did not feel very welcome and choose to dine elsewhere. Otherwise, I loved the Hotel Bellwether and would stay there again.
So, the hotel was not full, but the staff never offered us the possibility of facing away from the tracks which would have considerably cut down the noise. I would think this would be a no brainer if you want people to come back or recommend the hotel
The view and the boardwalk were awesome. We were able to have a drink outside, and staff were courteous, and our meal at the restaurant was very good. Our room was clean and comfortable, but the noise from the trains was bothersome to say the least.
We stayed at the Bellwether on two separate occasions. We loved the balcony for watching people. We also thoroughly enjoyed the in-room fireplace for dinner and chatting. We have never met a jaccuzi which we didn't enjoy. We would definitely stay at this hotel again.
-Nice facilities -dog friendly - scenic location -close to restaurants
The view from the room of the ocean
Spa tub in our first room wasn't working. The staff happily moved us to another room with the same gorgeous view.
Impeccable view. Lovely staff, excellent food & relaxing ambiance.
Some maintenance issues. Loose fixtures in bathroom. Reception understaffed. Restaurant was under renovation -- would have been nice to know before booking. Pricey for room without a view.
Clean room in nice location. Friendly staff when you can find one.
