Feel like sour grapes considering the superlative reviews that come before mine. We had a reasonably pleasant stay, but there are problems. The rooms are in dire need of refurbishment. The straight chairs are so worn it was like sinking into a hole. No drawer space - we spent 5 days living out of our suitcases. The bathroom has no... More

This hotel, its restaurant and bar, and (especially) its staff could not be better. Nick in the Beline Kitchen and Justin in the bar were as cordial and helpful as they could be. But all the others we encountered were the same, we just didn't get their names. If you looking for a place in beautiful setting, with clean and... More

I have stayed here for 38 years because it is THE most special location when I traveled for work (32 years) and pleasure (the last 6 years).

Just about everything worked out for us. Would come back in a heartbeat. Perfect location on the west facing water. Gorgeous sunsets. We made our holiday card from an amazing sunset photo we took. Pelicans & paddlers put on a good show too. Bed was very comfortable. Room service on par with other luxury hotels. Front desk more than accommodating.

Loved it here. Checked in very early; room was ready. Opened the sliding door to my patio and listened to the sounds of the sea(ls) while working. Received a very nice welcome amenity and personal note from the Guest Services crew. Excellent touch! Breakfast at Baleen was very good. Service with a smile. Would return!
