From the owner:
"Comfortable accommodations in a century-old castle, restaurant and lounge, spacious gardens, and breath-taking views of the Olympic and Cascade Mountains provide the perfect setting for a special weekend, a retreat, wedding, or conference."

Manresa Castle is located at 7th and Cleveland, close to the intersection of 7th and Sheridan, where it sits on a bluff overlooking a wonderful view of Puget Sound. From their website: "SR 20 becomes West Sims Way. You stay on Sims Way until you get to Sheridan which is just past the QFC shopping center. Make a left on Sheridan and the Castle is on your right. (Tip: Follow the hospital signs.)"
Manresa Castle from the outside sure does resemble a European Castle, complete with towers, turrets, windows, and an aura of respectability of old-world culture. It is an immense building that is three storied, and its functionality is well used. It probably takes a boatload of money to keep this wonderful building up to snuff and heated, so they have done a great job putting Manresa Castle to work. The banquet room (formerly the chapel) is used for weddings and special events, they have their own restaurant, and they host retreats of book clubs, knitting events, and many other types of retreats that bring people into their lovely hotel.
