Clean rooms, reasonable prices. Not a lot of off-site eating options, but the included breakfast is very good. Pleasant staffers, and a quick trip to the Pier 91 for your cruise. Given other choices, we felt this was a pretty good deal for the money.

Our family of three stayed here for one night prior to a cruise. The hotel itself was fine - although the rooms are a bit on the smaller side, and the price was inflated compared to what's usually expected with Holiday Inn Express. Breakfast was as expected with room to sit, and courteous wait staff. The front desk was able... More

We had a room with a Space Needle view. We were a $6 Uber ride to Pike's Place. A mile or so walking. The room is the standard fare for a Holiday Inn Express, but wifi is free and parking is reasonable at $15 a day. About the same price as some boutique hotels, but we needed the parking.

We stayed here for three nights whilst visiting Seattle. It was very odd having two Holiday Inns back to back. We only realised that the Dexter Avenue and Aurora Avenue were 2 different hotels which backed onto each other. Dexter Avenue is marginally quieter as Aurora Avenue is a very busy road day and night. The hotel was reasonable. A... More

Easy 10 minute walk to the Space Needle, monorail, and restaurants . Enjoyed a two room suite. Room had a jacuzzi which made it a bit difficult to get in and out to take a shower. Breakfast standard for HIE with good coffee. Staff friendly.

We stayed at this property one night while sightseeing in Seattle. We had a very difficult time getting into the property's parking lot due to one way streets and ended up at the Holiday Inn on the same property just behind the Holiday Inn Express. We actually parked in their garage not know the difference and ended up having to... More

The room itself was small and I didn't like the fact that the sink and mirror were just inside the door to the room (and the light would bother someone still in bed), but the beds were comfortable and the pillows were great. We were clearly not in the best part of town, but we were very close to many... More

This hotel is located very near the Space Needle; we could see it very closely from our suite windows. The staff was super friendly and helpful. They helped us get on the shuttle to and from Safeco. The breakfast room staff was also greatly attentive and hard working. The A/C worked perfectly and wasn't overly load. The only slight negative... More
