My wife and I enjoyed a 3 night escape to Seattle last month and had an opportunity to try the W. We've stayed at almost all of the major hotels (and some great B&B's) in Seattle and we looked forward to trying the W. As a loyal TA user we had read the wide range of reviews and were keeping...

I stayed at the W in Seattle on my way to a business engagement and I couldn't have made a better choice. I have travelled extensively for both business and pleasure, but have never had a better or more luxurious experience than that of the W. The room had a fantastic view of the city and Puget Sound, and it... More

I won't ever stay at a W hotel again. Not even for free! The place is a downer. Dark hallways, dark carpet, subdued lighting, dull rooms. If I wanted to stay in a funeral home I would just die. Across the street is a nice hotel for about the same price as the W. (The Olympic) The staff is nice,... More

Anthony checked us in -- very friendly, helpful, and thorough -- took care of us so we could be on our way. Our room was quiet, spacious, and full of wonderful amenities -- Bliss Spa products, super soft towels and robe, and super comfy bedding -- exceeded our expectations and experience. The W was a real treat at the end... More

Some things were very nice-some horrible. I think the valet doing a walk around to mark all the dents and scratches on your vehicle so that you don't accuse them of damage to the car should happen after they have assisted you with your bags-not instead of helping. Check in was quick. We were upgraded to a higher floor-gratis. The... More

I like W hotels and my wife LOVES W hotels. This is a great place. Perfect location - right in the heart of downtown. About a block away is a fantastic sushi place (just walk straight down towards the water). Like most W's - everything is overpriced. The lobbies are like a chill nightclub but the drinks are like week... More

Stayed here 1 night for business. Typical, hip W hotel vibe in lobby and in rooms. As a Starwood Platinum member, I was upgraded to a suite which had a huge living room area and large jacuzzi tub in the bathtub among other extras. Always nice when a hotel goes the extra mile for loyal guests! Location is great for... More

I stayed 4 nights at The W Seattle and enjoyed what I consider to be one of Seattle's best hotels. The staff was unbelievable, the beds are the best, and the restaurant is off the hook. One of the best locations in the city as well.

The hotel is cool and swanky. The staff is very nice and attentive. The bar downstairs has a good happy hour and on Weds have happy hour from 7 - midnight. The fitness center is adequate but cramped (after work), it's also dark (low lighting) everywhere - including the rooms. A couple tips: Happy Hour at the Monanoco (across street)... More
