“just right, great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2012

nice and tidy room, great location (walked to a wonderful restaurant for breakfast), exceptioanl service from Paula at the front desk who gave us the rundown on shopping, very comfortable room was clean and had everything we needed. not a chain, so that was refreshing! would definitely stay there again but would upgrade to a room with a view of the harbor, although there is so much to see in town that it really wouldn't be necessary to spend time in the hotel room.

None of the cottages were available, but staying in a room on the second floor was terrific! Paula was on duty at the desk and couldn't have been more helpful. She researched thrift shops for us, helped us locate them on maps, had great suggestions for where to eat meals!! And, there were free DVDs to borrow AND microwave popcorn to accompany them. It was a great experience..... There were even laminated menus from many, many restaurants in the office. And the room was very comfortable, and had a little fridge, and a small microwave, and a nice TV. It was very clean and comfy! I will definitely stay here again! And I hope to try a cottage so I can have a little fireplace! Yep, great value and extraordinary service!

Room Tip: Cottages would be fun to stay in, but we chose the least expensive room that was available, and had...

We brought our group to Port Townsend for a three-day meeting and pretty much took over the hotel for the duration. The staff, and particularly the event planner we worked with, could not have been more helpful, patient and welcoming. The rooms were comfortable and clean, and the area was very quiet at night. The views from the penthouse were spectacular.

Almost without exception, our group members reported that they very much enjoyed the experience.

One caveat: There are no elevators, so if you are in the penthouse, be prepared to carry your gear up four flights of stairs. Some sort of hoist for luggage would have been welcome.

Room Tip: The penthouse will accommodate a largish meeting in the main area as well as having two bedrooms. F...

This was our third trip to Port Townsend and our first time at The Swan. It was fantastic!! They had a special offer and we received a bottle of wine, two theatre tickets, and a $40 coupon for supper out. Staff were very welcoming, the room was clean and well equipped. We had view of the Marina and it was the quietest place to stay. It was within walking distance of all of downtown and there was lots to see on the waterfront.
We will ABSOLUTELY go again and recommend to all our friends.

Room Tip: Room A8 overlooked the marina , great view and very quiet

We were on a day trip to Port Townsend and stopped into the hotel to check out the cottages. Needless to say we fell love with them. We told the person at the front desk we will be back to say in the cottages soon. As it turn out we decieded to stay that night, the cottages are so cozy in many different ways, the jetted tub was reallly relaxing and worked great. the cottage also had a gas fire place stove that was nice for the cool nights. the room had a microwave, coffee maker, cream and sugar plus a few little extras. The front Desk person was great she gave us a map of the area pointed out the beat places to eat and what to do. The whole experience was a real joy. the area was very close to all the shop and resturants. We will be back many more times to stay
