2/10 Poor

Room was nice but heating device noisy. The bed was very comfortable. It was very difficult to find the hotel in the dark, which it was at check-in time, because there is no illumination on the entryway and it's obstructed by an outside seating area on the sidewalk. The evening desk clerk was very unhelpful. The morning staff were fabulous. It's in a cool area but driving around the area is a challenge.

We used to live in Seattle and still try to come back to visit regularly. Hotel Ballard has become our go-to place to stay. The hotel is beautiful, the staff are helpful, and the area is very walkable with tons of shops, restaurants, and even the farmers market on Sunday. Even with all of that so close by, the rooms are quiet and comfortable.
