This property is in a good, safe location and is convenient to a lot of shops (Target, Walmart, etc.) that you will need nearby if your kid is moving into WWU. The staff are really kind and helpful. The full breakfast offerings are a fantastic start to the day (bagels w/cream cheese, fresh seasonal fruit, cereals, waffles, hard-boiled & scrambled eggs, sausage, DONUTS!, oatmeal w/toppings, juices, coffee/tea/hot chocolate, buttermilk biscuits w/sausage gravy -- lots to choose from! Rooms on the ground floor in the main building (where the check-in/lobby is) can receive a bit of hallway noise as other guests pass by in the morning on their way to breakfast (beginning at 6am). Those room numbers are something like 200-210. If you prefer not to hear people & the clicking of the exterior doors, request a higher floor. There are no elevators, so if one needs to avoid stairs, request a ground floor room in one of the other two buildings. I liked this hotel and would stay there again.

We had to wait 2+ hours to get our room. We got there at 2:45 with a 3pm check in. We finally got checked in just after 5pm.

This hotel goes above and beyond!

Love this hotel! The only negative we encountered was poor sound insulation. We could easily hear what was going on in the rooms above us and in the hallway. However, the beds were very comfortable and the room was updated and clean. The complimentary breakfast was great (scrambled eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, cereal, etc.) The pool is outdoors but heated and there was a very nice hot tub. There are complimentary DVD's in the lobby to play use with the in-room DVD players. They even gave us some microwave popcorn!! We will definitely stay here again when we are in the Bellingham area.

Twas a grand night!

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
'Nuff Said. We stayed at the Elysian and have not had a better experience at a hotel. Ever. First, the design of the hotel is beautiful. The architecture is majestic outside, with a cool roundabout courtyard that you won't see anywhere else in Bellingham. Inside, the feel is chic, accessible, and comfortable. The staff is exceptionally welcoming, calling me by name from the first check in, and happily accomodating any request I had. The room was large, with a nice sitting area, bathroom, and bedroom. There is ample closet space and I wish I could take that showerhead home with me. It was what a high-end hotel should be--it has the best of everything and a fantastic, accomodating staff.
