One thing for certain on Courtyard's, you always know what to get. Here are some things we found about this property: Pros: *Quiet, the hotel was booked yet we rarely heard a neighbor or street noise. *Clean *Huge flat screen television in-room (larger than most, a 40+ I am sure) *Very friendly staff, always saying hello, asking if they could...

We have stayed in several Seattle area hotels and this is our new favorite. The hotel has a view of Lake Union (we upgraded to a lake view room and were so glad that we did!) and is close to the downtown area but not too close. Even with construction going on we quickly got to all the destinations (Pike... More

Went with my hubby to Seattle - him for business, me to experience Seattle. This hotel was recommended by the company my husband was working with. At first I thought it was far away from downtown, but the streetcar is a 5-10 minute walk, and you're downtown. You can walk around downtown easily, or catch more means of transportation, if...

If you're going to travel Seattle and you haven't been there before, there's something you should know: hotels in Seattle are just plain expensive. This hotel is no exception compared to many similar hotels around the country. Nevertheless, it is very well kept and clean, with a polite staff. My room was really nice, spacious with a comfortable bed. As... More

Stayed here for the Seattle Boat Show , the Marina is just across the street so access is very easy . Close to downtown and many of Seattles' famous landmarks , the staff was kind but not overly accommodating , ask for a room on a higher floor for a view of the lake . Breakfast in the restaurant was... More

The hotel is clean, well kept and modern. It is located within a dozen blocks to the space needle and great restaurants. If you like to jog, there is a nice walkway along the lake. Throughout the day you will see someone jogging. While one can walk down to Pike Place Farmer's Market, there convenient taxi's or buses to take.... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We appreciate all feedback we receive from our guests. I couldn't agree with you more on the water view rooms.

Great location & property: I really liked the view of Lake Union and although high winds kept Kenmore Air from flying the Friday of my stay, I was treated Saturday morning to a sight of rowboats rowing away on Lake Union. Sadly no picture. Also is fabulous the transit connections. Wonderful that the streetcar - after a perilous walk across... More

I stay here when I visit Amazon's HQ. The area is exploding in growth and there are plenty of walkable restaurants from the hotel. The staff is very accommodating, beds are comfortable and everything is up to Marriott standards.
