Loved the hotel! Absolutely beautiful rooms with exceptional service. The on site restaurant Stoneburner was nice but could you a more extensive menu. Loved the coffee/tea and pastries. Definitely returning. The location is perfect with so many restaurants and pubs walking distance.

Stayed the night on our anniversary. While it is a bit cold/wet in Seattle in February, the roof top suite was still nice. I can see how it would be even better in the summer! Nice view, the room was great! I had no complaints at all. Bed was nice, the fireplace on a cold night was warm and cozy....

We stayed at the Hotel Ballard while visiting our son who lives in Ballard and it couldn't have been nicer or more convenient. We were warmly welcomed at the front desk and when our room wasn't ready yet (we were early), the young man recommended a great restaurant called High Life for a bite while we waited. The hotel also...

I was staying here on business and I enjoyed this hotel as it felt like staying at Anthropologie if they ever had a hotel. Everything was cute with a lovely color palette. The staff was very personable and this was the perfect place for a large group as we were there for a conference.

It has everything you'll want, including stylish rooms, excellent service at the front desk, convenient underground parking with a parking elevator that brings you right into the lobby, free breakfast juice and...

Went to a show at the Tractor and rather than the drive home to the eastside we decided to spend the night on Ballard Avenue. Great choice great hotel. Music, Bars and Restaurants in all directions - Hattie's Hat, the Tractor Tavern and King's across the street. Quiet and relaxing vibe at the hotel, service was great. Right ON Gang
