A very nice property with a great view of Lake Union. It is worth the extra money for for a lakeside room. But the place is already very expensive (Seattle) and parking is an additional $25 per night. Breakfast buffet is gone and now a counter where you can get Starbucks coffee and some light fare...not a great breakfast spot.... More

Upon arriving at the hotel parking was very difficult to find. They have oversize parking available. I drive a regular half ton that was a challenge to park in the oversize parking, there is little turning room. we came back one night and could not find parking in the oversize parking area. Although we were paying an extra $30 a... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your comments and concerns from your recent stay via TripAdvisor.com.

I am a Courtyard fan and this is one of the nicest I have stayed in over the past several years - one of the largest as well. It is located directly across the street from Lake Union and many walking/jogging trails. There are also many local restaurants within walking distance. The room is your typical Courtyard layout, great view... More

I have stayed at the Courtyard Marriott Lake Union a number of times whenever I come to town to do business at Amazon. It has a great location and the recent lobby remodel looks great. Front desk staff are always pleasant. The Restaurant's breakfast food is good but the staff has a lot of room for improvement, but also I... More

We stayed here as they were finishing the lobby & restaurant remodel; so while I can't say how nice it is now, I can tell you that it looked like it would be really nice. The checkin was fast; they accommodated a room change for me so I wasn't near the elevator. I found the staff nice and helpful. The... More

We stayed here on a trip to visit our son who attends UW. It was a good, close location for that. It was actually a great lication for lots of things. We walked to Seattle Center from there, went sailing on Lake Union. There were plenty of restaurants close by. All the downtown attractions are easily reached. The hotel itself... More

My family stayed only one night at this hotel. We checked in late, but staffs were friendly. Next morning, we had breakfast buffet, it wasn't anything fancy but good enough. Building was a bit old but I think they were updating things they can. Bathroom had only one sink.... More than anything, friendly staffs made everything well.

Overall the design is what you would expect from a typical Courtyard but this one for some reason looks "brighter". The place is clean and well maintained. The only 2 negatives is the fairly noisy street even from the 10th floor and the really dirty AC intake grid and filter (probably never cleaned since they refreshed the hotel).

We made a trip from Portland with my track and field team to stay near the UW in a hotel within 20 minutes from the Indoor Track. We were under the impression that the parking lot across the street was ok to park overnight vs paying for parking at the hotel. ( Parking is enforced M-F 8-5 pm) We woke... More

Had room 720, wonderfull view of lake. Very clean and bed was comfortable. The only problem was the door to bathroom would not open all the way, I believe it was too large because it dragged on floor.
