I stayed at this hotel as I had a conference in town so the location was key. Everything I needed was walking distance away. Staff were very good and friendly. And the room was nice and clean and the view was good. A couple of things that I didn't like about the room: 1. The water pressure in the shower... More

I stayed at the Motif for 3 days during a business trip. The room was pretty nice, and the price was reasonable for downtown Seattle. The location was easy walking distance to a lot of restaurants and other activities. The problem I had was there was a failure of service and follow through. During the night, at about 5:30AM, when... More

We spent Thanksgiving week and had a great time due to the perfect location to view the Macy's parade, the Seattle Marathon and walk to many nearby shopping centers over super Friday. We took the light rail from the airport to the Westlake Station which was less than 2 blocks away from the hotel. The pleasant staff upgraded our room... More

We recently had a staycation at Motif Seattle. Being a Seattle native, I had never stayed at a Seattle hotel before. I will definitely be recommending this to my friends who visit in the future! The location couldn't be better when it comes to being downtown. You can walk anywhere from Motif Seattle. The staff went above and beyond with... More

My wife and I had an opportunity to stay at the Motif before the big game last week-end. We are local but have never stayed down town Seattle so the NFC Championship was our 'ticket' to do it. Upon check in, "Ty" was our check in desk clerk and had an utmost courteous demeanor. After a pleasant check in experience... More

This hotel was the perfect place to stay for two nights in Seattle. It has a convenient underground parkade, ideal location and nice, clean rooms. We usually stay at the Sheraton (a block away), but because of the better price and the exact same amenities, we will definitely return.

Motif Seattle is an excellent downtown location in Seattle. Hotel is easy to locate and the parking garage is right next to the hotel. We arrived by using the Central Link Light Rail from airport and it's just couple of minute walk from the station. There is tons of shops and restaurants within few minute walk from hotel. Even the... More

We spent a week at this hotel and their service is very on point. The room was clean, the hotel food was ok but their patio is very modern and fun, and their front desk peeps are very helpful. The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is because they somehow misplaced my clothes. I use the laundry service and... More

My husband and I stayed at Motif on NYE with another couple. This was our first time staying at this hotel. We have stayed in quite a few downtown hotels in the past. The lobby is chic and modern looking. The rooms are a bit on the smaller side, but that is expected for a downtown hotel. A couple things... More
