We stayed at Residence Inn Seattle Downtown/Lake Union on what is looking like a yearly excursion. Last year we stayed at the Courtyard Inn across the lake and had a lovely view of the lake but no breakfast was included. Since we were eager to revisit Duke's Chowder House and it is virtually across the street from the Residence Inn... More

Stayed here Feb. 27 to Mar. 1, received excellent service by Edward at the front desk! The room clean and well appointed. The bed was super comfortable and the view was beautiful. We requested more blankets and towels late one evening and they had them to us within just a few minutes. My family loved the breakfast, MANY options in... More

We have stayed here many times with our 2 dogs (very pet friendly) and enjoyed every visit. Great views of Lake Union from many rooms. It is easy to walk our dogs around the block for exercise and they feel very much at home here. The breakfast area is newly renovated and the flow for getting your breakfast is much... More

Located in South Lake Union area, which is now dramatically changing. Very close to Amazon's new Head Quarter campuses and easy access to downtown CBD. The hotel rates are much more reasonable than those for downtown or waterfront hotels with the similar access to downtown business accumulations. Only drawback to this hotel I believe is, the property is old. Although... More

We were in Seattle for surgery. The Residence Inn Seattle Downtown/Lake Union was a perfect setup for post surgical recovery. The separate bedrooms and bathrooms provided much-needed rest for our surgical patient and gave me space to relax and tend to the patient! We were able to cook lunches and dinners in our kitchen, which was an added bonus, especially... More

I spent a night here for business and was pleasantly surprised by the very nice lobby. It was a lot like an Embassy Suites. The staff at the desk was very friendly and accomodating. The room was clean and quiet. The one thing that keeps me from giving the room 5 stars is it was missing an iron. I suppose... More

This hotel was a mess. From the drunks at the front door to the uncontrollable room temperatures. The room furnishings looked like they had been salvaged from a dumpster. One chair had the stuffing showing through on the arm. The sofa appatently hadn't been cleaned , ever. When I went to the front desk to request a different room I... More

My husband and I traveled to Seattle to watch our son in a Track Meet, so it was a quick trip. The stay was a very positive one. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was on the 6th floor with a small balcony and a view of Lake Union. The room was clean, Fresh and had... More

We stayed there for 4 days. Clean quiet rooms Considerate helpful maids Great front desk staff, they even sent 2 faxes for us at no charge. The best complementary breakfast we have ever seen at a Residence Inn with a unique selection of food and terrific seating at small tables, large tables, and balconies

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...
