It can be rather expensive, but I got fantastic views from my lake-view room on the 6th. floor, and enjoyed walking around the lake and to downtown locations. The staff at the front desk were welcoming, and the room was spotless and comfy. One of the 3 elevators was under repair the first day, but it had been promptly fixed... More

We stayed for only one night, and it worked out very well. It is under some construction, but that had no impact on our stay. It is close to the Link Light Rail which is an inexpensive commuter train from the airport. Also, it's only about a 10 minute walk to the waterfront and Pike's Fish Market. Very close to... More

We stayed here during our week-long trip to Seattle partly because many other hotels were unavailable and partly because of the seemingly great location (which it is). Check in took a little time, but the nice gentleman at the counter explained the parking situation (across the street is free but not guaranteed safety, hotel underground parking was $25 a night,...

I stayed here at the recommendation of a local school I was attending. Upon checking in I was never told there was a parking fee. For 3 days of parking I was charged $90. They finally reimbursed the charge, but the difficulty in achieving this was significant. If I would of known I would have parked at my place of... More

I'm sorry to hear our hotel failed to meet your expectations. I apologize for the trouble you experienced with our elevator and the ice machine on your floor. We are in the process of updating the equipment in one of our three elevators and hope to have it back at full capacity quite soon! As far as parking, I'm sorry... More

I was not at this Marriott long as we got in late, Everyone was very nice and got us processed in fast so we could rest after our long trip. The next morning everything went well, we had a nice breakfast and got the shuttle to the ship. Everything was done on time and all the staff was so kind.... More

I stayed at the hotel last year and the stay was very pleasant and very nice. The staff at the counter was very helpful and the barkeeper was good. The room I stayed in was cozy and clean. The bed was comfortable. The view was to the back and the street wasn't super nice, but ok. There were tons of... More

Stayed for the Rock and Roll Marathon - so expensive that weekend for a standard Courtyard Marriott - but still worth it since it was close to start/finish and lake view room compensated. Staff very helpful and all recommendations worked out well. Barman (originally from Hong Kong) was very welcoming, as were the front desk and staff member from Dayton... More

I stayed here on a Thursday and Friday night because I was visiting Seattle for business. I chose this hotel instead of some cheaper ones because I thought it would be t least SOMEWHAT of a luxury hotel. I would expect this because of the cost being just under $300.00 per night. Man.. was I ever wrong. I've never felt... More

Leaving my booking a bit late, I had two days to make a booking in Seattle for three nights. I chose the Marriott on price, as well as proximity to the downtown area. As it transpired, I walked everywhere from here, although you need to allow thirty minutes to walk to anywhere interesting. The hotel has a reasonable gym, which... More

I chose this hotel because of the location and because I had enjoyed it in past years. I paid extra for a lake view, but they gave me a room with a view of buildings and construction from the bed and sofa; the only way to get a lake view was to stand along the wall or near the window.... More
