I lived in Seattle for 3 years and this was my first trip back. What I love about this hotel is it's convenient location right on Ballard Ave, close to great restaurants, coffee shops, the local movie theater, etc. It's rare to find a hotel in Seattle that is in an actual neighborhood, and not downtown near all of the corporate buildings. The staff here is wonderful, very helpful for anything that popped up and definitely felt like they were invested in their customers. The bedding was luxurious and love having nice bath products in the shower. I stayed for 3 nights so parking underneath the hotel was included (also rare for a Seattle hotel). There was an option to get breakfast delivered in the morning which I really appreciated and took advantage of. The rooftop view is incredible - highly recommend getting a glass of wine and watching the sunset from up there.

This is by far one of the best places I have ever stayed. It’s very clean and elegant and beautiful to look at. The soaking bathtub was a lot of fun. We were on the top floor and had a courtyard which was very charming. The food was pretty good as well. The workers were highly trained and very professional. We will definitely be returning again

We have stayed here several times pre-Covid, and were happy to be able to return once vaccinated. The hotel is spotless, as always, and has all the pandemic-safe adaptations in place: elevators, rooms, hallways, common areas. I was very pleased to find a fresh-air filtration and circulation system in our room.

Love this boutique upscale hotel with the king suites. they’re super cozy and trendy. Love the sliding barn like doors for separation of space. The courtyard suites are all up on the 5th floor with the mezzanine overlooking Ballard and ships. No rooms connect apparently however and due to COVID access to the Olympia Athletic Club is closed to hotel guests.

We were married at the Hotel Ballard Hotel 10/24/15 and returned 10/24/20 to celebrate our 5 year anniversary there too. We had such a great stay! The room was spotless. COVID precautions were obvious, including wrapped/sanitized TV remotes, pens, etc. William and Cody helped me arrange for a room on the pavilion floor, and had a bottle of cold champagne and a sweet card waiting for us. We had a great dinner at Stoneburner (also COVID safe), and spent the next morning wandering through the Ballard Market. It was a great weekend escape. Thank you Hotel Ballard for making our stay so special.
