I spent two nights at Motif Hotel Seattle and thankfully the hotel staff during my check in time was super helpful. I managed to get my room upgraded from two queen sized room to family room with little extra money. The family rom was spacious and well fitted for five of us. It had a nice sofa for me to... More

Raquel greets you with a smile and bright conversation. Great location, comfy bed and beautiful view. Super service. Lobby is simple but modern. Nice desk in room. Decent bathtub. Nice bellman. Good prices for Seattle. Near office and Barney's is nearby.

Motif Hotel is a jewel in the city of Seattle. Located downtown near shopping and theaters, the rooms are beautiful and comfortable, the staff is excellent at all levels, and the prices are competitive. It's a very nice alternative to the chain hotels and I would gladly stay there again. Just 30 minutes from the airport, it is a lovely... More

This was our first time in Seattle (and what an impressive city it is). We requested a room with a view and we got the 16th floor(1607), facing the Puget Sound. It was a well-appointed large room with two queen-sized comfortable beds and a lovely bathroom. We could not have expected more The people on the front desk have been... More

The location is good. The jotel is confusing with its boutique yet casual feel. The florescent lighting is obnoxious and they had several dedigners eho did not communicate. The front desk was great as were maids and bellstaff. The bar and kitchen was a mess and not good. The outside deck was huge and great but inside the redyltaurant it... More

The motif is great, formerly known as the red Lion. I have been using this venue for business trips for a few years. Staff very friendly and efficient, and I would definitely recommend it. However, the frolic on the 5th floor is horrible. I have never experienced such poor food or service. I will happily stay here, but I will... More

I have stayed at this location many times, but this is the first time under the Le Motif name. The redesign is 'cool and trendy' but the missed on a KEY element. The mattress in my room was possibly the WORST MATTRESS EVER. It was completely shot and literally swallowed me up to the point that I was sleeping or... More

Stayed here for 3 nights during our trip to the USA and really enjoyed our stay at the Motif. We found that it was in a very convenient location especially since we didn't have a car. We walked everywhere. The rooms are very nice although a tad small. The only negative would be the standard of the Wifi which was... More

Motif is a good option if you are attending a convention at the nearby Convention Center; otherwise, there are much better places. The hotel had been recently renovated, the room was clean and of adequate size. Breakfast was regular, at best. Wi-fi connection was good. The neighbourhood is not a good one, with lots of drug addicts around, especially during... More
