Good hotel with nice room, spacious suites with kitchenettes. The breakfast is pretty good and the coffee is always fresh. I had a problem with a neighbor being loud at 130am , made a call to front desk apparently security did not hear anything and did not ask them to be quiet. I finally walked down to the front desk...

Stayed here for a week on business and highly recommend it to anyone. Surrounded by many attractions and entertainment options and the hotel and staff are exceptional! The rooms are spacious and kept very clean. I really appreciated the daily refresh as well.

There is nothing wrong with the Residence Inn but everything was a bit worn and a bit tired. Our room was laid out and appointed like it was 1982. Awkward layout for the bathroom, terrible shower head and everything else just seemed tired. The bed was average as far as comfort goes. The pillows left a lot to be desired.... More

We arrived in the afternoon of the 27th and it was a great and easy checkin experience. We have never been to Seattle so we asked questions for us staying one night what was there to do? We got great ideas and it was a delight to be checked in. I forget the girls name but she just moved to... More

This hotel was quite busy for the holidays but had plenty of food in the mornings and the staff was so pleasant and helpful. We had a lake view room and the view was absolutely worth the extra money. I would definitely stay here again.

This hotel is awesome, especially at the government rate. They offer probably the biggest free breakfast buffet I've ever seen at a hotel and their appetizers on weeknights are enough to fill you for dinner! If you do want to venture out there are a few right across the street or a TON of restaurants within a mile of the... More

This Residence Inn in Seattle is great for families! Great breakfast, light dinner, good size pool up to 6ft, kiddie wading pool that is 3ft, there's a dry sauna, and a hot tub! Right next to the pool there is a kid's activity room, with a foosball table, xbox, tv, some toys! Would stay here again, although it's a great... More

The Residence Inn at Lake Union was very conveniently located to the trolly line to downtown for shopping, restaurants, the Space Needle, etc. It is also very close to many of the hi tech companies in the area. The room was well laid out, with a separate bedroom and a nice kitchen/living area. The couch was a bit uncomfortable for... More
