This is one of my favorite hotels ANYWHERE, and we travel the globe regularly, and stay in five-star hotels. The spacious room with sitting area and fireplace, coupled with the stunning view of the small boat harbor and bay beyond -- amazing. Always enjoy returning to the Bellwether. Only downside this time was some noise from the room above -- footsteps, etc. Still enjoyed our stay, though!

Room tip: Get a room on the water for sure!

From the moment you walk into the Hotel Bellwether you feel at home. The staff are incredibly professional and friendly. Everyone goes out of your way to make your stay pleasant. The rooms are inviting and comfortable. The restaurant offer beautiful views and the food is always delicious and served to your specifications. I will only stay at the Hotel Bellwether while I visit Bellingham!!!

Room tip: Ask for a room facing the bay

Dear hhclausen,

Thank you for the kind words in your review! Our location is mere minutes away from Bellingham International Airport with the added convenience of being very close to downtown Bellingham's many shops and restaurants in the area. If you are in the area again I hope you will pay us a return visit!

Excellent sunset dining experience. Surrounded by windows overlooking the bay just added to the amazing food. Whiskey Crab soup is heavenly. Followed by Seafood Risotto which was cooked to perfection. Healthy shots of Sambuca and Baileys in our special coffees topped of a fantastic meal. All the servers were attentive and friendly.
No complaints for this visit.
