10/24 at Hotel Ballard ❤️

Oct 25th, 2020

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. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Cool, hip, great rooms, great location

Sep 27th, 2020

Wife and I stayed her during Covid and had a fantastic time. Had a suite - bedroom and living room that looked over Ballard Street on 4th floor and so cool, so hip, so comfortable could not be better. View of the mountains the waterfront and the street below all full of color and life. Bed very comfortable, bathroom roomy and stylish. Service top notch all around. Stone Burner restaurant below is a great atmosphere was good menu and beverage selection. All around, cannot recommend this hotel enough - especially for the location, the town of Ballard never have to leave to have fun. Covid - everything felt clean and safe. Great great great hotel.

Enjoyable stay in courtyard suite

Sep 26th, 2020

I was visiting Seattle for a few days of relaxation and decided to book my final night in Ballard for a change-of-pace. The Hotel Ballard appealed with its location (right in the middle of a cute strip of stores, and within walking distance to several restaurants) and boutique character. I booked a courtyard suite. This unique rooms are on the top floor and entered from a courtyard. They are definitely more expensive than several other accommodations in the Seattle area, but I felt the rate was reasonable for the quality of accommodation. The room itself was very stylish: a small living room with a fireplace, a bedroom with a king bed and ample storage space in side tables and and a dresser, and a particularly elegant bathroom with a skylight, large shower, and gloriously deep soaking tub. The bed was extraordinarily comfortable, and I liked that you could slide barn doors on either side of the bedroom to make it completely dark and very quiet. (Note: my reservation confirmation noted that some events are hosted in the meeting room on the courtyard level, which can cause noise; no such meeting occurred during my stay, and things were very quiet.). The bathroom amenities were Molton Brown and very nice; in-room coffee was high-quality. Everything was sparkling clean. The only downside of the room was the lack of a desk. Since I was traveling for pleasure, that posed no problem, but it would have been an irritant as a business traveler. Staff at the hotel were very accommodating. My check-out was extended by an hour without any problem. Parking was easy; there’s a small garage beneath the hotel. I appreciated that I was allowed to keep my car in the garage a bit past check-out time to facilitate some walking around the neighborhood. Very good location. The street outside the hotel features several local shops, nice bars (most without outdoor seating suitable for COVID-19), and good restaurants. Easy place to spend a couple of days. The hotel’s own restaurant looked like a chic space. There are better locations if one wishes to sightsee throughout Seattle (Ballard is a bit isolated), but if you want to stay in this section of Seattle, closer to the locals, this is a great spot. Overall, a very nice stay; I would not hesitate to recommend or return. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Mixed feelings

Jul 23rd, 2020

I would love to give this hotel a glowing review, but I can't. First the good: The location is exceptional. It is right in the heart of downtown Ballard just steps from great dining and shops. The room was clean and well appointed. The front desk workers were very nice. The not so good: I chose the hotel because it advertised complimentary use of the health club, including lap swimming on their website. When I arrived I was notified that the club was closed unless I wanted to hire a personal trainer to workout and the pool was also additional and you had to book specific lap swimming times at $10 per 1/2 hour. Of course all lap swimming times were fully booked so not laps! Now I recognize these are exceptional times with Covid-19, but that is a pretty big amenity to not disclose prior to booking. It should be noted on their website or shared in an email confirmation. The hotel had virtually not amenities. Granted it is a small boutique hotel, but there is nothing. Finally, in the tradition of small intimate hotels, the front desk should be trained to answer simple questions about where to dine or shop in the neighborhood. I asked for recommendations on where to eat, and the poor guy at the front desk had no clue of what within the immediate area of the hotel. Would I stay here again, Possibly, but I would watch for a lower price. It was one of the most expensive options and offered very little for the money. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Comfort Beyond Expectations

Mar 11th, 2020

Ballard was our last stop on a 44 day journey. What a fabulous place to rejuvenate! The beds and bedding were so cushy - can I buy some? Deep soaking tub, fireplace, rooftop views and impeccable service. Add in a high end fitness club to swim laps, stretch and soak in a hot tub. Then top that off with fabulous restaurants, bars and shopping all within a few blocks and you get a wonderful relaxing end to a fabulous vacation. We will return! Thank you! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
