Stayed here for a company conference for 4 nights. No issues with rooms. Bathrobes included. Good size TV. Internet connection was solid. Very central location to shops and restaurants. As for the conference area, I liked how they had a "pantry area" setup including fridges for drinks, self serve fountain drink dispenser and counters for the snacks. Staff was very... More

Booked the Red Lion Hotel at least a year before needing the accommodation - then the hotel changed hands to The Motif. Apparently renovations took place in June - but I think they still need some work done! The plumbing needs looking at due to shower water not running freely down drain - mostly you have a foot bath while... More

As soon as you walk in you will be attacked by 5-10 employees. I feels scary when you have so many acting fake. The showers have a slanting metal rack for your razor and shampoo to sit in but they fall right off because it isn't level. There is NOTHING to hang your towel on after you get out, no... More

I was looking forward to staying in the hotel following the renovations. The location is absolutely perfect, and for a nice price. My first impression of the hotel was how genuinely helpful and friendly the staff were. This was true for every staff member I came across. The room was nice and overall the hotel was pleasant. The hotel itself... More

Our stay at the Motif was very pleasant. It used to be the Red Lion Hotel, but they recently renovated it and changed it to Motif Seattle. Our 2 double bed room was huge and we were on the 16th floor so had a view of downtown, for the price it was pretty reasonable compared to what we have had... More

Couldn't of been a better place to stay for our fun filled day. Everything we wanted to do was in walking distance and the monorail is only a couple blocks away for the needle. Staff is very welcoming and the art and decor is very vibrant and easy on the eyes. Our room for 10 dollars more gave us an... More

In the heart of downtown Seattle, Motif is nestled in great restaurants and shopping district. The hotel was a fantastic price and the rooms were beautiful! Breath-taking view of harbor, wonderful in-hotel restaurant and the staff was professional and friendly! Could not have asked for any more...except wished we had more days!!!

I never stayed here when it was Red Lion but the hotel has been very nicely updated! There are a few little things that are not perfect such as noise from other bathrooms and rooms but it is quiet at night so I had no problem sleeping. The rooms are large and comfortable with modern décor. The bathroom is a... More

We recently stayed at Motif in Seattle for a Seahawks game Halloween weekend. Being with 2 pre teen boys and being from Edmonton, we weren't sure where in Seattle to Halloween. We were taken by Shannon the GM of the Motif to Ballard to trick or treat to all the local businesses in the neighbourhood. We had an amazing time... More
