On the day ofâ¦ the staff who worked at our reception were prompt, organized, cheerful and very welcoming to our guests. What I appreciated most was the extra effort they put in during the cleaning (as I was exhausted at the end of the night). We had rented plates, cutlery, etc. at Celebrations in Olympia. Thought I would have to rinse everything out and get everything ready for pickup, but the Bayview staff stepped in and did it all!
