Why the Owner Chose Olympia:
I owned JINJOR a Woman's Clothing Boutique in downtown Olympia for about 20 years. I catered to many woman who were dressing for special occasions and they were always asking me for a place their families could come for a week or more that had a full kitchen. I designed Short Stay Lodgings to be a Home Away From Home for all of our travelers. Corporate Stay or Grandparents love our kitchens. Downtown Olympia has a taste of everything from the State Capitol to museums and the world class Washington Center for the Performing Arts(only two blocks away) Olympia has so much to offer of old world charm which you can see in some of the classic old well maintained buildings in the downtown core such as the Security Building which is home to Dillenger's Restaurant. I have always enjoyed walking or biking to the waterfront or the downtown boutiques and cafe's. 910 Franklin seemed like the perfect spot. Europeans seem to particularly appreciate the elegant and functional decor. It is a clean, quiet, and comfortable place to retreat in the heart of downtown Olympia.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
