Parking at the Chambered Nautilus Bed and Breakfast Inn

Parking . . . I know hum-drum; however, the past few weeks one of the questions our readers and guests have been asking about is parking at our Seattle Bed and Breakfast.

Is it available?  Answer: YES! Will I be able to find a spot? Answer: YES!

How do you find parking near a large university in Seattle, WA?   Once you arrive at Chambered Nautilus, the first question most guests ask is the following:

What do all those signs mean? Answer: We have it all taken care of for you!

These are all good questions for anyone traveling, planning a trip, and spending time in a big city.

So here is the skinny:

Parking in front of the Chambered Nautilus
The parking available at our Seattle, WA Inn is street parking. However, the parking is controlled by a permit process, and this is actually effective! We provide a permit to our guests at check-in to park on our street. There is no charge to you; we simply ask that you give it back to us when you leave, so we can provide our next guests with the permit. Requiring a permit keeps every student in town from parking on our street and makes sure that there is parking for the residents (that would be me) and our guests (that would be you) on the street.

In the rare event, such as UW graduation week, that the street might become congested, we have a back-up plan in place for you. We park out front on the street of our Seattle bed and breakfast AND we rent a couple of parking spots very near the inn; thus, we can always find you a spot nearby the inn to park your car. I often tell guests that I have the power to magically create parking spots at the Chambered Nautilus, and we are happy to do so.

We offer a 24-hour loading and unloading zone right in front of the inn for your convenience, where you can park for 30 minutes on arrival, departure, or at other times.

We have a Zone 6 Permit for you!
So if you will have a car to park at the Chambered Nautilus Bed and Breakfast, park on the street, anywhere you choose, or in the loading zone, and ignore the multitude of signs. All the signs say that you are not allowed to park unless you have a zone 6 permit, and in a matter of minutes, you will have a zone 6 permit once you check-in. You will not only receive a zone 6 permit once you check-in, but also a smile, warm welcome, and fresh cookies.

Remember: you don't need a car when you are at our inn! Within walking distance, you can enjoy and discover restaurants, shops, a beautiful park, and a bus stop are all within steps of our Seattle Bed and Breakfast Inn.
