We just spent a night at this hotel in the Fairhaven district of Bellingham. Great location by the water with comfy, well designed rooms, good restaurant and nice staff. Spa was being remodeled but we will definitely plan a return visit so we can utilize those services. Wonderful Northwest vibe to this property near shopping, bars and restaurants in old... More

Room exceeded our expectations and was exceptionally comfortable. The restaurant downstairs was absolutely delicious and a excellent amount of seasonal choices. The location is near the ferry dock which was an absolute boon for those traveling the Alaska marine highway.

I stayed here on an overnight tip to Bellingham. The room was great! The food was great! The service was great!! The only slight downside is the one coal train that goes by at night. But other than that it's a lovely quiet peaceful hotel and a great value. I'll def go back here when I come back to Bellingham.

We stayed in room 204, it has a panoramic water view and an enormous bathroom with a separate shower and jacuzzi tub. There's a pony wall beside the tub with sliding doors to block off the top half for privacy, and if they are open you can see the water view or watch tv from the tub. The restaurant there... More

We just celebrated another anniversary at the Chrysalis. The hotel is nice with a fantastic location overlooking the bay. We had a comfy king bed, great soaking tub and a fireplace. Parking is easy, service was friendly and the location is great. We didn't walk into Fairhaven because it was cold and raining. We had dinner and breakfast at Keenan's.... More

There is so much to discuss about an outing to the Chrysalis. The whole package, things Inside and Outside however really adds up to a great experience. So here goes.

I've never stayed at a $400/night hotel before, but this was our wedding. The Chrysalis is fantastic overall, but poor for sleeping. The good: our corner suite was amazing in the daytime.
