I was upgraded (unnecessarily so) to a two-room suite. I arrived after dark but had a nice view of the Space Needle from the balcony. Service was pleasant and the staff helpful. Very nice breakfast buffet. This is a good choice if you are visiting the University of Washington and want to stay at a Marriott property.

This hotel was very comfortable. Nice views especially room 511. This is a 1 bedroom. The rooms are not crowed with decorations so you have room to put your stuff. Layout of the room is very nice. Pull out sofa, full refrigerator/freezer. Kitchen stocked with utensils, tea coffee, dish detergent and POPCORN! Breakfast is from scrambled eggs to waffles to... More

We stayed here in a two room suite as Grandma was with us and our infant for 4 nights. It is right on the tram line, making it easy to head downtown if you don't want to walk. It is also right on the marina if you favor taking an evening stroll to look at the yachts or more awesome... More

Stayed here for 7 days while on a business trip. We got a 2 bedroom suite and it was just okay, nothing fancy especially when you pay more than $500 a day for it. Pros * Quiet location and a beautiful view of the lake and marina. You get to see seaplanes land :) * fast WiFi * a few... More

The hotel is very clean and comfortable. We had a 2 bedroom corner suite which was very clean and spacious. Breakfast was really good. Free Wifi. The only issue was street noise as we were on second floor, not easy to sleep late in the morning.

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.

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...
