Early check-in / Late check-out

Interested? It's possible! Guest satisfaction is our top priority and our current COVID protocols make it easier than ever to accommodate these requests.

What's with all the art?

Port Townsend is many things, including an artists colony. Your hosts are artists raised by artists who believe in art - you'll find original, local art featured throughout the suites, in both public and private areas. 

Artists represented at The Washington include: Max Grover, Rebecca Woodhouse, James Arrabito, and Linda Okazaki, among many others.

Port Townsend is recognized as a Creative District in the State of Washington. Read more about that designation and what the arts mean to our community by clicking here

Minimum Night Stay

Our standard minimum night stay is 2 nights, requiring booking of 2 consecutive nights in the same room (for example, Friday and Saturday or Saturday and Sunday). Some holidays and special events may subject to longer minimums.

 

You are encouraged to submit a booking inquiry via Airbnb if you only need a single night and the booking engine requires a longer stay.

Smoking

The Washington is strictly a nonsmoking facility. Smoking is not allowed in the building, in guest rooms, or within 25 feet of any commercial entrance. Evidence of smoking including the smell of smoke in the room or in the public and private outdoor areas will result in a minimum $250 charge plus the cost of any damaged property. (Yes, friends, we mean any kind of smoke!) No burning of any sort of object including candles or incense is allowed, and no other strongly-scented items are allowed in rooms. All of the above are subject to cleaning and damage fees.

Pets

We love animals, we really do! That said, we do not allow pets. We totally get it, and we hope there are no hard feelings!

 

Please contact us if traveling with your furry friend is a non-negotiable and you'd like a recommendation for either a pet-friendly accommodation or for local pet-sitters.

Parking

Street parking is free and plentiful! We will provide a pass for overnight lot parking upon check-in - we ask that you please respect the specified hours to help us maintain this crucial guest benefit.

Cancellation

We're happy to offer a flexible cancellation policy. For more information, please see our booking page on Airbnb.

Why Airbnb?

We're glad you asked, because guest satisfaction is at the heart of this decision.

You probably know that all forms of lodging need a system for booking, whether it's pen and paper or a comprehensive online platform. The Washington started with the first and tried the second.

 

Ultimately, what we like most is that booking on Airbnb starts with a conversation that continues through the duration of your stay. That was especially important to us as we began to see firsthand how the guests that told us about their trip and asked for recommendations had a better time overall. We love to spoil our guests, so telling us a bit about yourself or your itinerary gives us a chance to dote on you with your preferences in mind. It's a beautiful thing!
