This a great location to take advantage of walking into the downtown area, just 5 minutes to Pioneer Square shopping. As others have mentioned the pricing is a little pricey, and somewhat limited. Checkout the lot across the street, which appeared to be a lot cheaper especially for weekend stays.
The rooms have more furniture than should be allowed with a king bed. The bed is very comfortable. The bathrooms have been upgraded with a nice big shower. The odd thing is the heating system. The first night we turned it all the way down, but the fan purred on, and the room seemed too warm. The second night in a stroke of genius, we turned the dial all the way to the top, surprise surprise, the fan shut down, and with the window opened a little the room cooled to a comfortable temperature. The only downside to opening the window is the sound of the steeetcars rumbling and squeaky by in the morning were even more noticeable. But waking up early gave us a chance to get breakfast in the little restaurant on the main floor. That was worth the effort, great flavours, French Toast and smoked salmon hash were just right, the coffee was very good but a little pricey.
Kudos to the youthful staff, always friendly , helpful and knowledgeable about the area.
Without the heating issue I would have rated it a 4, maybe they will see fit to give operating instructions.
