Bellingham’s luxury get-away hotel is seeing its own period of renewal with extensive guest room renovations, set for completion in early March. After 18 years, it was time, says Chris Caldwell, Chrysalis director of sales and marketing.

New hardwood flooring and carpeting, beds, furnishing, and decor all align with the vision of Chrysalis’ original designer and architect Betty Blount of Seattle’s Zena Design Group. Rich tones, surprising pops of texture, and natural materials highlight this update.

“It has a Pacific Northwest feel with some interesting wood and iron, tables and accessories which are rustic and modern at the same time,” says Caldwell. The renovations also feature modernizing the guest rooms with smart televisions, giving guests the option to log into streaming services.

In accordance with Chrysalis’ community foundation, more than 95 percent of old furniture was donated to non-profits in the Bellingham area.
