Decent concept and will be popular among a certain crowd but i wouldn't stay here again. They seem to provide a very good level of customer service though. Be aware there is no elevator and there are lots of stairs. lots. Particularly from the front, street entrance to the front desk. Straight up and probably 40 stairs. The breakfast area... More

Adorable room and bathroom for a fantastic price. Within walking distance of several restaurants and Pike Place Market and Washington State ferry terminal. Stayed here night before Alaskan cruise. Used Lyft for local taxi service from Westlake train station. Could have walked it in about 15 to 20 minutes.

Friendly customer service, clean rooms, clean restrooms, many showers available, good TV reception, excellent rates, free wi-fi, quiet rooms, good morning free breakfast...all close to the Pier. I believe this hotel is one of the best kept secrets in Seattle. Sorry, but not disability friendly. You have to go up many stairs to get to the reception area. Although the... More

I stayed last week for 1 night. Had one of the bathrooms right across from my room and it was spotless the whole time. The shower was strong and hot. The bed was awesome. I'll stay there again for sure.

We are not fancy hotel people. We stayed in the most basic room and it was perfect. We could peak our heads out the window and see the water. There was a tree right in front of the window that helped block some of the noise. It was a little on the noisy side but that's to be expected when... More

The hotel is in the 100+ years old building with a neat and modern interior. I chose the hotel for its affordable price, but it was better than I expected. It was clean and close enough to walk to the city. I overall enjoyed the stay except that the air conditioner was pretty noisy and I could not look outside... More

I loved the Ace Hotel, and I'm happy that I decided to 'splurge' and come here in between hostel stays in Seattle. The first things I noticed was the pine-tree-esque smell that inhabited every space in the hotel. I LOVED it. I loved the amenities offered: Wifi, breakfast (waffles, fresh fruit, PB, jam, yogurt), bath robe, and their version of... More

If you are considering a visit to Seattle and if you prefer real and authentic more than chain hotel luxury, you'll love Ace Hotel. Located in the heart of the Belltown (downtown), you can put away the car keys and walk to some of Seattle's best and most interesting restaurants, nightclubs, pubs & shops and the amazing Seattle Art Museum....

This is one of my very favorite hotels. Booking.com brought cost, which includes generous continental breakfast, just under $100/night. The staff is among the friendliest and most helpful. The hotel redone in 1998 with wonderful input by smart design team. Showers down the hall are plentiful and in large anti-claustrophobic rooms: ten or twelve foot ceilings, all tile, tall curtain,...

This is the most talked about issue regarding the Ace- the shared bathrooms are totally cool. If you are a princess or drama queen, this is not the hotel for you. The Ace offers modestly furnished rooms, with a modern feel and amenities for travelers who want to avoid disgusting, tasteless and tacky chain hotels whenever possible. We opted for... More
