We booked through Expedia which offered rooms with partial harbour and a city view of the neighbouring condominium. We were able to check-in early; very friendly front staff. Our hotel room had a juliet balcony which is a standing balcony and cannot fit a chair. You can also see the mountain ranges of Seattle. The hotel lobby has a very pleasant scent which is the same as the room's toiletries. No need to bring shampoo or soap as there are large dispensers and smaller samples provided daily, Coffee in the room was very good. If you use the small fridge, you may need to adjust the temperature from the gauge located on the right back side. Overall, our room was clean, quiet and comfortable. The cleaning and maintenance staff work very hard and are pleasant. The pool and exercise room are accessible only through the change rooms - make sure you exit to the correct change room as they tend to keep the men's door open. The pool is heated, whirlpool and exercise room are well maintained. Downtown area is only 10 minute walk and the hotel offers a free shuttle which we did not take. My only suggestion for the hotel is to update all their carpets and bathrooms and not charge for parking to make this a 4.5 star operation. A nice carpet choice would be that of the lobby's.
