We love this place! Our room is always clean. Breakfast is yummy! Never had a problem with noise. Very helpful staff and so friendly. I love how the have soft and firm pillows, a new paper waiting for each room in the morning! Very enjoyable stay!

Friendly service, very helpful. Breakfast included. Clean and comfortable rooms. Noisy when facing Aurora Ave. Great location, with a twenty minute walk to The Crab Pot. Rent a Car available near by. Good and cheap taxi service also available. Recommended!

I was in town for Seattle Marathon/ Half weekend and stayed at this hotel which was very close to the race start/ finish. A 10 minute walk at most. Perhaps because many runners were staying here, this hotel was very quiet for a Saturday night. A clean, quiet, modern HI Express with very friendly and helpful staff. Parking was not... More

The location is good as both Seattle Center & downtown is "walkable". The staff really tried to facilitate a good stay as they moved us for our search for quiet. It was clean, and a decent price. No views really and the big issue is that "teams" stay here. The late night noise in the hallways and in/out of rooms... More

The hotel has a nice, clean, new look to it, and the desk staff were great. We had a suite, which was surprisingly spacious with its 2 bathrooms and had a view of the Space Needle. We spent a whole day down near the Space Needle, and visited the EMP Museum, Chihuly Garden and Glass, and rode the monorail, all... More

I came to study at Pacific Maritime Academy... I initially tried to stay Monday but was told they were booked through Tuesday. I had already called prior to taking this trip and was assured there was a specific block of rooms saved for PMI. When I got here, no rooms were available unless I was willing to pay more than...

Nice hotel, clean rooms, great breakfast and friendly staff. Parking can be an issue later in the day as there is a limited number of spots available right at the hotel, however we were told to park one block up at a parking lot. The hotel is located in a safe part of town and only a 5-10 min walk... More
