We booked a room with two queen beds on the third floor (three floors to the hotel) facing the street and parking lot. It's the most economical room, but feels just as quiet as its counterpart, a room with two queen beds and a view of the golf course. Although the street-side rooms don't claim to offer a view, you can see the Strait of Juan de Fuca from here.

All rooms contain 2013 updates, including the TV's, new HD channels and HBO, iPod-docking alarm clocks designed with a phone-charging port, single-cup coffee pot, ice carafes, amenity trays and armoires. The closet located next to the bathroom holds an ironing board, iron and hairdryer. You'll appreciate the extra sink and mirror across from the closet. The full bathroom with a tub and shower features modern tile work and granite countertops with Bath & Body Rain Kissed Leaves shampoo and conditioner.
Other room options include King Rooms with a view, with a king-sized bed and armchair and ottoman, and King Rooms with a patio or two Queen Rooms with a patio. The ground-floor patio rooms allow quick access to the pool without going through the lobby, as well as the opportunity to relax outdoors in a small patio space -- where kids can explore the rock gardens along a paved pathway. The Executive King is a roomier option for families, featuring a king-sized bed and sleeper sofa, available on the third floor with views or on the ground floor with a patio. It doesn't cost much more than a regular patio room. For even more space, the hotel also offers connecting rooms with queen and queen or king and queen configurations, as well as ADA-compliant units. Cribs are available upon request.
Take note of the gorgeous photography in your room and around the hotel. The nature photographs are the work of local artist Ross Hamilton, who has been photographing the Olympic region for 40 years. The waterfalls, rain forest trails and mountain views will give you a taste of what you can experience in Olympic National Park.
