When we went to check in we were told our room wasn't ready and they'd call my cell in about 10 minutes. Thirty minutes later we went back to see if it was ready, they switched desk people and failed to call us. The room was not what we expected, especially since I thought I had upgraded the room.

This is the 2nd time we stayed at this hotel. The first time was impressive with the location the price and the staff! However the upkeep of this location is really bad.-the suite we had had a very strong smell of mold ( Seattle is a very rainy city but my house does not smell like mold...) The suites had... More

We stayed for two nights at the Talaris Conference Center. It was very pleasant, and such a lovely setting. It is truly an oasis in the Seattle area. It is incredibly quiet. We were made most welcome. We were given a map showing the hotel grounds and local neighborhood area, clearly marking restaurants within walking distance. Our dog enjoyed the... More

We have stayed at Talaris twice now while my daughter has appointments at Children's hospital. They have been so welcoming, kind, and helpful. They gave my kids teddy bears and had easter eggs on the grounds for the kids staying at the hotel. The rooms are clean and they are quick to help out with anything you need. My ONLY... More

Found Talaris and booked it on a whim on a personal trip. The staff was very hospitable – even when arriving late at night the night manager walked me across the property to my building. The property was beautiful and it was great waking up, stepping outside and seeing the lake. Breakfast was delicious as well!

3.5 stars, actually. The pros do outweigh the cons. The setting is just beautiful; if you have a car and your purpose in Seattle doesn't revolve around being downtown it will feel more homey than a hotel. It is super-close to U Village, Seattle's best shopping. Also, I arrived late at night and was welcomed by the friendliest desk clerk... More

This is a really beautiful property - and I would really like to give it a higher score - it is older but really very nice -EXCEPT for the mattress! I think this was the original mattress from when the place was constructed - perhaps it was their way of making sure my wife and I were intimate - yes... More

This is the second time that I stayed at the Talaris . The first time was about a year ago in September when I needed a place to stay for the weekend while assisting my daughter and fellow UDUB roommates move into a house near campus. I found the Talaris while searching through your site . The grounds are gorgeous... More

I came to Seattle for business, but did not want to stay in the bustle of downtown. The Talaris Conference Center is a lush and beautiful property nestled in a residential area. Autumn was such an awesome time there and I enjoyed the vibrant colors and views of the pond. Ideal for jogging and enjoying a cozy room and relaxing... More

We stayed for one week, and were very happy with the Talaris. - the competent & warm staff, the room and the gorgeous setting. The website pictures almost do justice, but there's more to this large property, when you walk the paths. The lighting in the rooms is adequate, but dim. If you need to prep for photos, bring your...
