I'd love to give 5 stars because this is such a great place in so many ways -- wonderful location, excellent staff, spacious, clean rooms, outstanding housekeeping, convenient mini-mart and delicious flatbread pizzas in the tap room. But unfortunately we had one serious problem and another disappointing but not so serious. The serious problem was with the couch bed in... More

I selected this hotel for two reasons: 1) The two room suites can accommodate families of 5-6 and 2) Location. Having stayed at other Residence Inn's before, I knew what to expect and the room was in line with my expectations. The location wasn't quite as good as I hoped since we had a view of the storage building next... More

I would go back here as the hotel staff was great, the hotel suite was awesome, and we had a nice view of lake Union. However I must say I was pretty shocked by the quality of the furniture. As $475 for a night and parking and a hotel of this class, the furniture shouldn't be falling apart. Some people... More

Very clean, newer residence in - I love having a kitchen and suite setup with family. The porches are huge at this hotel, with views of the lake or city - can't really go wrong! Very friendly staff and decent breakfast - We usually stay at luxury hotels and I was nervous about a residence in, but this one is... More

We were very pleased with this family friendly hotel. We booked the 2 bedroom apartment and found the place very spacious. Kids were happy with the pool and free wifi, we liked the lay out of the room (1 big double room, living area and small kitchen and bedroom with 2 doubles), guest laundry and parking. Free breakfast. Only a... More

From the outside the hotel is not very impressive, however walk inside and you are in for a nice surprise. Nice lobby! Very nice rooms and include a full kitchen. The hotel has great decor and friendly staff. Location is good. Although not in downtown it is surprisingly close (walking distance) and from there one can take the monorail to... More

I stayed there for three nights for meetings with Amazon. We walked to their offices and ate dinner across the street on the water at Duke's and Chandler's, both excellent. The rooms were large with a living area, desk and kitchenette. Breakfast was included but parking was $27 per night.

Stayed at this Hotel the day before our cruise to Alaska from Seattle. We wanted to be close to downtown, so we would have an easy trip to the Pier. Also we arrived early Saturday so we could spend the day in Seattle before our cruise. The Hotel had large rooms that met our needs. We had two rooms, one... More
