Formerly the Starlight Hotel, the Ballard Inn has been renovated to meet the high standards of the Ballard community. Located in the heart of historic downtown Ballard, we are within walking distance of anything you could desire. It is a perfect location for visiting family, business trips or a weekend getaway with downtown Seattle being a mere 10 minutes away.
Completely renovated and restored to its 1902 elegance, the Ballard Inn features 16 intimate rooms with 21st century amenities.
Built in 1902, the building was originally commissioned by the American-Scandinavian Bank. In the late 1920s it was converted to a hotel, which served the City of Ballard and neighboring communities of Fremont, Wallingford and Magnolia for over 100 years. The Ballard Inn continues to serve its guests with the commitment and loyalty that its predecessors did before it.
