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

I travel multiple times a month, many times for 2-4 days in a single location. I frequent Seattle Washington 7 to 10 times per year. I have stayed at at least 20 different hotels in North and South Seattle, Bellevue, and Downtown Seattle extensively. I have stayed now at the Motif 5 times in the last six months and have... More

Stayed here on a weekend. Checked in around 4 thirty but my room was not ready until 5:30-6. This was very unsatisfactory since I was trying to get changed to go out at 7. Upon check in the front desk didn't inform me of wifi passcode, nor did they clearly explain the use of the parking garage. All be it,... More

Stayed here Thanksgiving holiday. The staff was nice and helpful. Room was clean and had most amenities. The bed was comfortable and a good view of downtown. Price was reasonable. This place is walking distance from Pike's Market, Museum, Aquarium, and lots of shops and restaurants. You can take the lite rail from the airport. It drops you two short... More

Got a great deal on this downtown hotel. Nice modern design but think walls and patchy cleaning are an issue, the floor of my rooms bathroom could have done with a mop up. Friendly staff with good Wi-Fi speed for a hotel though.
