Bed & Breakfast On Broadway Hotel Review: This restored, turn-of-the-century, Pacific Northwest-style retreat is just a block away from the funky shopping, dining and entertainment district of Capitol Hill. Located on a quiet residential street near a bookstore for travelers and one of the city's art house theatres, it blends in so well with the neighborhood that it's hard to tell at first glance that it's a hotel. It doesn't have a sign, so make sure you have the address before you go. Guests will be delighted by the original stained glass windows, Oriental rugs and shiny hardwood floors, as well as the luxury of their own private bathroom. Although visitors may not see the artist at work, they can watch the paintings of proprietor Russel Lyons evolve now that he's moved his easel into the common room. Meanwhile, they can play away at the grand piano. During the summer, breakfast is served on a deck overlooking the garden. With its central location, this is an ideal place for travelers wanting to avoid the generic hotel experience.
