Offering world-class Seattle bed & breakfast lodging in downtown Tacoma at affordable rates since 1996, Chinaberry Hill continues to be a favorite of the Seattle-Tacoma hotels and B&B lodging choices for business and vacation travelers, as well as the local Seattle-Tacoma romantic getaway weekend crowd. One-of-a-kind antiques, super comfortable beds (our mattress sets won the all-time product award at Bon-Macys–no hotel mattresses here), incredible breakfasts and cheerful hospitality are part of what keeps our guests coming back. Downtown shops and theaters, waterfront restaurants and Tacoma’s Antique Row are just a few blocks from this remarkable garden retreat.

Victorian Opulence with Coffeehouse Flair

A long-time local favorite of Pacific Northwest and Seattle travel writers, this 1889 Grand Victorian bed and breakfast hotel has been featured in several Seattle vacation travel publications, including Conde Nast Traveler, Sunset Magazine, Travel & Leisure, Northwest Best Places, Fodor’s, Amazing Getaways, Seattle Magazine and Romantic Days and Nights in Seattle.

Surrounded by cascading greenery, lovely 100+ yr trees – including the oldest known native cherry tree specimen of its kind in the state of Washington (Prunus Pugetensis for those of you who need to know) – and wonderful views of the water below, you may forget that your hilltop garden hideaway is actually an urban inn.

A Place of the Heart

It is not unusual to have return guests staying at Chinaberry Hill on any given week. We appreciate such loyalty from our guests and we endeavor to make sure that your twentieth visit is just as fun, personal and memorable as your first.

We know why you have a favorite coffee house or restaurant, a well-loved book or music that fits your mood. We want to be your favorite place to stay when you’re in the Northwest. It’s that simple.

They do not post their reviews on-line, however hard copies of their guides are available at book stores and libraries and are excellent resources for planning your travel itinerary. Like those listed above, they select only those establishments in the Seattle Tacoma area that pass stringent guidelines and personal on-site inspections.

This is one groovy place… better-than-restored with decor that’s bold, eclectic, opulent and inviting. A delightful place with secluded garden, hilltop privacy, yet great urban access.
