This is, I believe, a "Gen 1" Residence Inn, which means there are several buildings with a few rooms in each. I prefer these types of Residence Inns as they have a more homey feel to them. We were given a very nice room. The check in was efficient. Housekeeping was above average, actually the one assigned to our room... More

We stayed a couple of days here and the hotel was decent. My favorite thing was the location which was easy to get to I-5. The breakfast was awesome with lots of choices. The room was clean and the kitchen was well stocked. The bed, however, was hard and definitely needed a new mattress. I was glad we were on... More

We had a wonderful extended weekend in the Seattle area for a sports event due in part to the Residence Inn. The room was comfortable, the breakfast a nice addition with lots of choices but the most appreciated part was the staff. They were all incredibly helpful and resourceful, Sonia always there with a smiling, "what can I do to... More

The property is comprised of several buildings that each hold 4 townhouse-shaped rooms. It is a bit of a maze a times, but clean and well-maintained. There may be other room types available, but we only saw the townhouse section. Each townhouse has a loft, so there are two beds and two baths (again this was true of our section).... More

We were challenged with hotel rates for a recent weekend in Seattle, en route to Vancouver and then a cruise. We searched for weeks for a hotel experience in Seattle proper, with rates for even budget chains well over $500 per night. Not sure why they were so extreme, but $685 a night plus tax just doesn't work in our... More

The hotel was decent. The location was OK. The included breakfast was good with lots of choices. The rooms were clean. The bed was harder than I'm used to but not bad. The room was a bit older. There was paint peeling in a couple of places but nothing outrageous.

Thanks for taking the time to review us on Trip Advisor! I was happy to hear you enjoyed our breakfast, but am sorry that your bed was a bit hard.

I stayed here as part of a family vacation. The staff was super friendly, the shuttle was constantly available and the rooms were large and spacious! I would visit this place in the future for sure. The only caveat is the fact that the hotel is not located in the city so if that is what you are looking for,... More

We stayed in this hotel for one night while in Seattle to catch our favorite baseball team play (NOT the mariners!). We have two small children and 2 dogs. The hotel room was spacious, clean, and had a full kitchen. When we pulled up, we thought they were apartments not a hotel. There was a pool, basketball courts, and picnic/grill... More
