Stayed there for 2 nights before the Cruise to Alaska in Pier 91. The price was great with the Marriott Rewards and military discount. The hotel is clean and our suite was great with excellent view to the Marina (1 BR with full kitchen and living room with pull out couch). The area is good for walkers/joggers. There restaurants in... More

Given some of the reviews, I wasn't sure what to expect for my stay, but I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel and found it completely serviceable and comfortable. The room itself was quite large, with a balcony, and the bed was exceptionally comfortable. While the features in the bathroom aren't luxurious, they are clean and functional, and it was... More

We booked a two room suite for one night. Staff was friendly, courteous and helpful. Only one thermostat for the entire suite, furniture and carpet needs replacing. Mold was present in both bathrooms. If you want me to pay that much for a night, you need to deliver. Probably wouldn't stay here again.

I have stayed here several times before it was recently remodeled & had no problems. My recent stay had plenty: Staff said they would make up the sofa bed but didn't; no hotel book ; no phone book; no note pads or pens; no DVD player; no bath cups; bath towels located as far away from tub as possible for...

This hotel is located near the center of seattle, but far enough away to be out of the heavy traffic areas. Convenient to many attactions with a taxi or town car shuttle service available through the hotel. We extended our Alaskan Cruise by visiting the sites in Seattle, Space Needle, Chuilly Garden, Pikes Market, and Downtown shopping. Located very near... More

Great location for quick access to downtown transportation. Close to the Space Needle, PSC,& Chihuly Glass Museum. Good breakfast! Nice to have a suite with children. Also nice to have 2 rooms to spread out.

This hotel is just fine. It has a wacky diamond-shaped layout with a huge lobby. Lots of spots to sit or wander. The pool was okay, and the kids playroom was a nice touch. Breakfast was good - lots of variety, lots of places to sit. They do, however, charge for parking ($28?) I don't recall exactly. This is normal... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. We were very disappointed with the 2 bedroom suite. The AC didn't work well at all. We notified the desk twice before they tried to fix the problem. It was not very much better. Breakfast came with the room. It was a surprised that it was so extensive buffet but, the tables... More
