Booked this hotel about two days ahead of time. Best price for four adults. We had a one bedroom with sofa bed and kitchen. Check in easy. Wish there was access to the bathroom without having to go through the bedroom. It was ok for one night but would be a hassle for several nights. Free breakfast, a little above... More

Hotel is located near South Lake Union and has great access to public transportation and easy highway access. Breakfast buffet included which was good. Room was dated and not up to Marriott standards. Bathroom sink was cracked, door was dented, and fridge also had dents in door. Overall good property for location but needs a little updating.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite and had a lovely stay. The breakfast was excellent, the WiFi worked great and the rooms were clean and comfortable. The only issue is the parking that costs about 27 $ a day, which was a bit expensive in my opinion but we had no other reasonable choice. The location is great, just... More

The room was large and spacious. Furniture seemed a bit dated, but was still comfortable. Breakfasts were great -- hot and fresh, with lots of variety. The open atrium in the interior of the hotel was pretty interesting. Had no problems with housekeeping - every day the hotel room was fresh and clean. The taphouse on site had a great... More

Our stay at this Residence Inn was overall a little disappointing as we are regular patrons of the brand (a Marriott elite member for several years). In general the hotel was okay but the door to our room appeared to have been forced open in the past and was never properly replaced/fixed, this does not give you a warm fuzzy... More

Great location on the lake right next to MOHAI where we were attending festivities associated with a wedding. Ample public transportation options to get us to and from downtown. Staples at breakfast buffet included bake-your-own waffles with condiments, oatmeal, eggs, sausage, potatoes, fruit, pastries and cereals along with abundant coffee and tea. We stayed in a two bedroom king suite... More

A group of us booked a large room here for the three Blue Jays game. Initially, we thought this was perfect!! Close to the tram making it easy for us to get to the games. We quickly discovered that it was cheaper to Uber to the stadium than take the tram. The breakfasts were good and plentiful. Unfortunately, that's where... More

Good afternoon and thank you for your feedback. We apologize for any inconvenience surrounding the housekeeping service during your stay. Our staff checks for the "No Housekeeping" magnets in the morning and must have missed the fact that you removed it during the day. Have a great day! More

Nice hotel overall. Rooms are suites with a pull out couch, thus good for a family with chidren. Includes a kitchenette. There are lots of things to do near by, within walking distance of the hotel. and always Seattle a nice city.

one of the best hotel in Seattle facing the lake near down town and very nice walk around the lake with many activity. The hotel is clean with spacious room. Try to get room 601 with large balcony facing the lake. Enjoy

The staff at the front desk was not friendly nor were the people at breakfast. The only person who was friendly was the house keeping lady who I pointed out the water leaking into our bathroom from the room above us. The ceiling was being damaged and was damp. I wanted to make sure somebody knew about it because the... More
