What a hip hotel and reasonably priced. Great design, comfy beds, a large dresser that you can put a lot of clothes in, and fantastic location. Right next to shopping and walking distance to great restaurants. The restaurant Froelich on the 5th floor has a cool vibe. Again great hip design and cool music. Would definitely recommend l.

Booked the March Madness special which included overnight parking and a $20 food/beverage voucher. Was hoping to arrive at 9-10 AM on Mondaythe 30th and spend some time at the market before the 3PM check-in time.

The hotel overall was very good, but my experience was over-shadowed by losing several articles of clothing to housekeeping, who were to careless to avoid grabbing my clothes from the floor along with the laundry they were taking away. I raised this issue with the hotel and was promised follow-up, but there hasn't been any. It sucks to lose your... More

This is a classy hotel in downtown Seattle with a reasonable price (for downtown). Staff is very accommodating. Flkr Bar and Restaurant is very good and again wait staff are very friendly. Room was very comfortable. In walking distance to numerous restaurants, Pikes Market, the Needle and more. As in any downtown hotel anywhere, parking costs, although $23 per night... More

My niece and I stayed for two nights at the Motif, and we were thrilled with our choice. The rate was so reasonable that we were not expecting all the luxury we received. A spacious, spotless, beautiful room with a great view and all necessary amenities. The plate-sized "rainstorm" shower was so enjoyable, like a relaxing massage. The beds were... More

We went for a girls weekend and I really enjoyed our stay at the Motif Seattle. It was beautiful and big enough and clean. It was modern and up to date. The hotel restaurant had a nice outside area and the front of the hotel had a nice area to sit by a fire. The hotel had a perfect location,... More

Hotel Facilities as a whole is beautiful and functional. People are great, happy and accommodating. The only concern were outdated or not functioning small appliances that are included in the room like the Keurig and the small fridge. Otherwise it still is a wonderful experience to continue booking our guest in Seattle in this hotel. It is in the heart... More
