Palace Hotel Port Townsend
Ranked #4 of 11 Hotels in Port Townsend
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 August 2016

Excellent location on the main strip in Port Townsend. Easy walking distance to restaurants, galleries and shopping. Older hotel with lots of character. Large rooms and bath with 14 ft ceilings. We had a corner room with a view of the harbor. The only cons were the lack of an elevator (we were on the third floor), and it was a bit noisy at night with the windows open. Also, there is no air conditioning which normally is not a problem but it was unusually hot when we were there (almost 90 degrees) so the third floor bedroom was warm at night. Due to lack of elevator, would not recommend for anyone with mobility or health issues.

Since our last stay here which was several years ago, the quality has increased. Our room was incredibly clean and we appreciated the quality and the detail that has gone into the historical look of the place.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms at the back on garbage collection days.

Happy we found this hotel. The room was large and very comfortable with a lounge area just outside our door. No breakfast included but didn't really matter as there are lots of little eateries in the town. There was no air-conditioning which could be a problem in the warmer months. Wish we had time to spend more nights there.

Room Tip: We had the Genevieve room which had less steps

We love the Palace Hotel. Our only issue this trip was the early recycling truck. The recycle truck started at 6:30 am and the sound of breaking glass did not end until 7:00 am. Awful!!!! We were hoping to get a later check out but front desk said NO. Next time I will ask at check in. Make sure you bring an eye mask. The rooms are so bright. Bummed! We stayed in Miss Abigail's room. The room was comfortable it has a small kitchen. Just perfect for us and our morning coffee. Again our only complaint is the 11:00 am check out.

We hadn't planned to stay at the Palace Hotel, but we showed up and Kristin at the front desk was fabulous and found us a room. We stayed in Miss Genevieve's room, with its claw foot tub! I <3 hotels with character, and the Palace has tons! I will definitely be going back!

Room Tip: We loved Room #15

We spent one night at the hotel. The bedroom and bathroom were comfortable and the location is very central. But there was a window above our bedroom that let the corridor light in - impossible to sleep, you could read a book with all the light that was coming in.

We missed the last ferry from Port Townsend and decided to stay the night. We walked in the Palace Hotel without any reservation but was warmly greeted and was offered a beautiful restored room Marie's Suite #3 for a bargain of $149 plus taxes.
The building has no elevator but it does offer- free parking, microwave, coffee maker with fresh cream in the fridge, dishes, common areas on each floor and free wifi with a good connection. Our comfortable bed was huge with quality linen.
It was mentioned our suite might be haunted and we heard the toilet flush on its own but that could have been a plumbing issue ....
The entire hotel is decorated in Victorian furnishings and style.
Glad we missed the ferry to find this gem!
Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Marie's suite was a large corner room with views views views
