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.

This is an 'early-Courtyard' that needs updating. Good location on the SW corner of Lake Union, with lots of new development all around. Easy access to/from I-5. One of the few Courtyards I've been in that has a restaurant. Average.

We stayed for one night and as always with Courtyard, found the staff friendly and helpful - the hotel has great colors and is well designed - HOWEVER - our room had several items needing attention. First - the sink took 10 minutes to drain - kinda gross; one of the sliding mirror doors of the closet would not slide.... More

we were supposed to have a lake view room but all we could see from our room was the back of the hotel sign. We told them this and they immediately moved us to a room with an actual view. Heads up: the seventh floor is different then the second. We had a great time in our room watching the... More

The hotel is in a great location, just across the street from public transportation (bus and streetcar) and right across the street from Lake Union. The restaurant inside the hotel is very good and reasonably priced. The hotel rooms were spacious and very clean. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. We had a wonderful stay in Seattle and would... More

For the price you can find a better place to stay. Room had a view of the roof, noisy at night. Keep looking! Not a convenient location for restaurants, there was a loud bar down the road. Plenty of nice reasonable places to stay in Seattle.

This is an 8 night stay for us, so it has to be great. Our view across Lake Union is delightful, we could wake up to it every day. The bed is extremely comfortable, and though the room is on the small side, it does have a great tv, fridge, and we also requested a microwave. There is a small... More

Service - I only stayed one night but found the front desk day & night staff to be very friendly and obviously trying to make sure I had a pleasant stay. Location - view of the needle wasn't amazing, with buildings and construction below, but the lakeside was gorgeous. I was able to quickly venture over to Seattle Seaplanes for... More
