We choose to stay at the Rainier Hotel and Conference Center the night before leaving on our vacation to Maui. It was originally booked as the Holiday Inn but between reserving and going on our vacation the management decided to be independent from the Holiday Inn chain. This caused some momentary concern but I contacted the hotel and the Assistant... More

I love, love love this place for parking. You can book it directly with their packages or go to the globalparking website to book. It is convenient and safe. They have shuttles that go every 1/2 hour and if you live in Renton that's awesome! Time your departure exactly and it's in and out. Even the wait coming back is... More

Thank you for the awesome feedback. Our Park & Fly is one of many options to stay with us. We have a great staff that makes the experience positive and you are correct about the renovations.

My husband and I stay here a couple of times of year and always enjoy our stay. We have eaten many time at the Yankee Grill and we appreciate the great customer service. The staff is always friendly and efficient. We order something different off the menu every time and haven't found anything we don't like.

The hotel has been so wonderful in helping us prepare for our March 29 seminar and giving us special treatment, room arrangements and lodging options! Working with both Heather and Harpeet over the last few months was amazing. We are down to the 'wire' and SO EXCITED!!

After having a horrible experience with another hotel I checked in to this one. Very pleasantly surprised. Has a good restaurant on site and nice rooms for the price. The beds are comfortable but not the best around. It was nice and quiet. Only concern was the elevator. Didn't really work well and almost got stuck. Definitely take the stairs!!... More

I am a crew member and deal with customer service daily. The poor experience started with the driver. He was very rude to myself and my mother for the fact he had to drive around twice to pick us up. I did not know the hotel name changed the past 2 months and was looking for a Holiday Inn Van.... More

I was stuck in Renton for a trip. Fortunately, Seattle was by too far away. The hotel was fine, and the room "satisfactory" other than the thermostat was broken. I didn't call to get it fixed so this doesn't reflect I'm my opinion. The beds are in comfy at best. There's free WiFi throughout which is better than hotels the... More

I hate driving in Seattle and this location was a perfect central location for me. My room was clean, comfortable and had everything I needed to relax at the end of the day. The bar was open late, great appetizers. Next morning enjoyed the generous breakfast buffet. Some of the friendliest, most helpful staff I've encountered. I will stay here... More

My family was on a Seattle vacation, but we didn't want to pay downtown Seattle prices, so we stayed here. The shuttle takes you to the airport to catch the tram into dt and back again, what a great service! So much more convenient than driving into dt Seattle. A hot bubbling pool of water was wonderful on arrival from... More
