    Thanks for the vote of confidence! And, for appreciating the "rain-on-the-skylight" experience that the Ballard View room offers when the Olympic Mountains are hiding behind clouds. Do come back when the sun shines to enjoy the west-facing deck.

    I stayed at 9 Cranes on a trip to Seattle to present at Swedish Ballard. It was such a serene, safe, beautiful place to prepare and rest after working all day. I walked home after exploring The Ballard shops and restaurants.
