117 West is a boutique hotel room (SHARED BATH) on the second floor of the Victorian-era Buhne Building in the heart of Old Town Eureka, just two blocks from the waterfront and boardwalk. The Buhne Building is a mixed-use artisan community, with shops and galleries on the first floor and artist studios, hotel rooms and loft spaces on the upper floors. The walk to your room starts up a beautiful Victorian staircase and meanders around two dim hallways and ends, at your door, 117 West, next to an art studio.
117 West is light-filled, with floor to ceiling windows overlooking Old Town and Humboldt Bay. The original hardwood floors and exposed brick celebrate the room's history. The room is ideal for individuals or couples, and has a king-sized bed with pillow-top mattress. A microwave, mini-fridge, and tea kettle, and french press provide the comforts of a modern hotel room. The antique furnishings and spectacular views offer Old World charm.
The bath is down the hall and up the stairs (yes, a hike) from your room and features a beautifully-tiled shower, antique sink and a modern dual-flush toilet. It is shared only with guests in the two other guest rooms in the building. Towels are provided for you in the room in a welcome basket.
Old Town Eureka is a Historic district on the Redwood Coast containing buildings from the Victorian era, cobblestone streets, galleries, shops, restaurants, museums, and a waterfront boardwalk. Old Town Eureka is known as a fine arts mecca and for its monthly "Arts Alive" events (when local galleries stay open late and the streets are filled with music, food, and street performances). You'll find galleries, museums, artist studios, live music, and theaters within a few blocks.
Old Town is also the perfect "home base" to explore Redwood National Park, Humboldt State Redwoods Park, area beaches and rivers. It is convenient to Arcata and Humboldt State University.
