I have stayed in this hotel a few times in the last 3 years and I am always looking forward to coming back! The staff is polite and very helpful. I know that it is part of their job but they really make me feel "at home" so far away from home when they "welcome me back". The location is... More

I was fortunate enough to book this hotel for early – mid-January, the absolute low point in Seattle hotel prices, well before the Seahawks/Packer game was scheduled (I can only guess at the astronomical prices charged to the Packer fans booking at the last minute). I paid a total of $128, which included a breakfast buffet and valet parking, a... More

Kerry, reviews like these are what I love most about what we do. It sounds like your stay worked out perfectly, and I'm glad the buffet and accommodations made you and your wife feel right at home. The details in this review give a lot of insight, and I'll be sure to keep them in mind going forward. Stay in... More

Greeted promptly by valet parking service and at the front desk. All staff were very client oriented including at the bar and breakfast area. Keep up the good work. Much better than average room amenities. Only down sides were our room faced the highway and was noisy from the traffic...of which Seattle has plenty.

I'm happy to see you were impressed with your room and our service, but I'm sorry you had an issue with any highway noise. We've taken precautions in our rooms to ensure it's not an issue, but we'll check into that to keep it from happening again. Thanks for the feedback! All the best, Frank F., General Manager More

The location of this hotel is right off the freeway so it is important that you ask for a room without that noise. Make sure you book it that way, do not show up and ask for that as you will be 50/50 if you get a quite room. The hotel itself is very nice and modern. They have a... More

Room was simple and clean. the bed was a bit hard; but I am spoiled at home with my sleep number. Staff friendly and cheerful; one thing that makes my stay even more delightful.

I loved my suite which was nice and spacious. It had a fridge, microwave and small sink as well as a comfortable desk to work from. The tv is adjustable so you can watch from either the bedroom or the living room which I appreciated. The bed is very comfortable and the furniture had a 60's feel. The room was... More

The location of this hotel is pretty convenient. It's located approximately 20 minutes walking time to downtown. They provide a complimentary shuttle service every hour if you don't want to walk. The room looks very clean, however there were visible fingerprints on the wood furniture so it didn't feel very clean. The shower curtain in the tub was also a... More

I have ZERO bad things to say about this place. Affordable, close to everything, spotless, comfortable, and included a complimentary yet hefty hot breakfast buffet!

I would expect my bed to be hard at a lower scale hotel not Marriott. I'm not sure what's going on with Marriott and Hilton maybe it's just here on the West Coast. They over charge you for everything and make you sleep in beds that's harder than a rock. The neighborhood is just that a HOOD! I kept getting... More

Wow, I'm a little taken aback by this review, but I hope you'll give me a chance to explain. First off, we purchased new mattresses for all the beds within the year, so yours should have been perfectly comfortable. From your description of the room, this honestly doesn't sound like us at all -- I wish you'd spoken up in... More
