The place is very pleasant, with good staff and solid value for money when you factor in the parking, meet-and-greet buffets, and so on. Clean, well located and recommended to anyone who would like to stay in this part of town.

We would definitely stay there again. The free breakfast is delicious and the service was great, so friendly. They answered any questions we had. Now the hotel isn't close enough to the Pike Place Market but we just took a $12 taxi ride there and the quick train ride back. We walked to the Space Needle but again if you... More

The Residence Inn Lake Union has been my go to property in the Seattle area for several years. It always provides a good side room with nice amenities (full size fridge) and a helpful staff. The consistent quality of the service and rooms is why I have returned. Recent renovations to the lobby and the addition of a bar have... More

This was not the best experience. I was looking forward to staying in the Lake Union area and was swayed to the Residence Inn by some of the positive reviews – regrettably, I should have paid more attention to the negative ones. The location is indeed wonderful – streetcar is across the street which gets you downtown in about 10... More

I stayed here for a week and was impressed. The rooms were worth the extra expense - kitchen facilities were convenient, rooms were spacious. Breakfast was filling - lots of options, it set you up for the day. It is right outside the team stop so easy to get into the city so no need for a car (but parking... More

I was sleeping around 0130 this early morning when 'security' entered my room. No reason given & avoided any level of questioning. Seattle Police Dept called and I will update this post with the outcome. SHAME ON YOU, MARRIOTT - NO EXCUSE!

My employer just co-hosted a conference at the Marriott Residence Inn, and I have nothing but 5 star feedback for all aspects. My Boss and other conference attendees said the rooms were outstanding, comfortable, clean and all slept well. Some used the gym in the am and said that they gym facility met their needs.

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
