We arrived abit early, receptionist was super nice and checked us in. Concierge was very knowledgeable and helpful, after a long chat about town, we were escorted to our room. Very cozy place, breathtaking views. We intended to have a cocktail before heading out to explore the city. We were treated like royalty since the moment we stepped out the... More

Great view. Great service. Friendly Staff. It's a perfect location to walk to any of the restaurants and bars. The breakfast was the best I've had anywhere. They have a variety of items and change it up every day.

Positive: fabulous view, spacious room and location in Friday Harbor. Goood service and fast wifi. Negative: gas fireplace barely has flames, no chair for seating just sofa, very small TV with not many channel choices. Breakfast was average, nothing special..

We stayed 3 nights and loved our corner room with a harbor view (#36). It was large, super comfortable and quiet. I expected the complimentary breakfast to be basic continental; instead it was eggs, bacon, breads, yogurts and fruit. Yum! Easy to walk around town, a short drive to the National Park (which has some nice hikes). Enjoyed dinner here... More

We stayed at the Friday Harbor House in early November after all of the summer crowds were long gone. We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay. The room was clean and comfortable. The view was breathtaking. The staff was friendly and very attentive. The food was fresh & delicious. We would definitely return in the future.

Coastal hotels tend to quirky privately owned independents as opposed to chains found inland. Friday Harbor House takes some of the best ideas chains offer like a free breakfast and improves on them. The brakfast at the restaurant is outstanding. We were quite sad it was the only meal we managed to eat there. Everything else is outstanding: Epic view... More

Really enjoyed our stay. The location is ideal for exploring the downtown and surrounding attractions. The hotel is very convenient for arriving and departing via the Ferry. They have a wonderful breakfast in the morning.

Loved the view from the balcony of boats arriving at the dock. The front desk was very helpful in finding excursion activities and recommending restaurants for meals. The morning. Real fast is really good and helped us start our day well fed and ready for the whole day of activities. Wish the weather would he been better all 3 days.
