“Stayed for One Month - Pleasant Hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

My husband, I and our dog stayed there for one whole month of July. Excellent hotel with nice people and great service!

We had a room with Nature Preserve view which was amazing. It was quiet and peaceful. I enjoyed the view of the beautiful wetlands very much!
It was a very clean room and the kitchenette was useful for an extended stay, although it wasn't suitable for cooking a big full meal.

The housekeeping team was great too, always kept our rooms and kitchen clean.
They had a shuttle service to Downtown Bellevue every 30 minutes, so I never had to take a bus there.

In the middle of our stay, they left us a small gift and a card to congratulate "reaching 20 days at Residence Inn", with a hotel mug cup, a bottle of water, and a voucher to use at their mini market by the front desk. I thought it was a nice little touch.

The breakfast buffet was great. Many different choices daily and everything was delicious. I especially liked the freshly made waffles.
They also had wine, beer and light meals in the lobby in the evening three times a week.

It's a very pet-friendly hotel. Our dog made a few friends during our stay. The doggie waste bag dispensers outside the hotel came in handy.
All around the hotel there are lots of nature and really beautiful trails, which we absolutely loved!

Room Tip: Book a room with Nature Preserve view. It's very quiet, and I loved looking at the beautiful wet...

Spent one night here - clean and comfortable room, great amenities, and great breakfast. I left my phone charger in the room and soon after we checked out they called and let me know it was at the front desk, which I appreciated.

Spent 1 night here Nov 2012. Did not really need all of the space and amenities in the room, but really enjoyed everything about my stay here. Especially loved the Paul Mitchell grooming products! Would stay here again.

My husband and I have always appreciated the concept behind Marriott's Residence Inns: "Designed around everything you need to thrive on longer stays." We appreciate the full kitchens, free internet access (at most locations), well-equipped business centres, helpful staff, and generous breakfasts. This location, just off the freeway and on the outskirts of downtown Bellevue (we walked into downtown, through Bellevue's rather brief 'old town' - it took us about 1/2 hour), is definitely one of their best. This is the first Residence Inn we've stayed at that wasn't a complex of 2- to 3-storey buildings with outside entrances, in that it is a large, 7-floor building with standard hotel-style interior hallways and single-floor 'rooms' (as opposed to mini-apartments). Our 6th floor room faced the nature preserve, which we purposely booked, because you can practically spit onto the freeway from the opposite facing rooms - and are therefore subjected to constant busy freeway traffic noise. The view was very pleasant, and the sound level was reduced enough so that we could open our windows at night. The room was well laid out, with a comfortable chair and desk area, a compact but efficient kitchen (full size fridge, dishwasher, two-burner stovetop but no oven - only a microwave), good-sized closet space, full dresser, couch and chair with ottoman, coffee table, flat-screen TV (which accepted our media storage device - some don't!). All the furniture was in excellent shape and was comfortable and attractive. The free breakfast was served in a large area just off the lobby and had a number of excellent selections: A large bowl of plain yoghurt (yay!) and cottage cheese, fresh fruit chunks, and hot selections which included sausage patties, scrambled eggs, roasted red-skin potatoes, miso and rice, and oatmeal. There was also the regular selection of tubs of flavoured yoghurt, pastries and breads, fresh coffee, etc. The food arrangement was very open and easily accessed, and there was sufficient seating while we were there (and I think the hotel was full). There is also an evening 'Manager's Reception' serving beverages and light food, but this only happens certain weekday nights and we stayed on a weekend. There is a small lap pool and workout area on the lower floor, and you can get to it directly from the main elevator, which means you don't have to traipse through the lobby in a dripping bathing suit or sweaty workout togs! The only complaints I have are that there is no fan in the room toilet, and parking is an additional $10 per night - but we checked it out, and there wasn't any on-street parking, although we noticed some guests were parking their cars in the 'park and ride' lot located just across the street. All in all, an extremely pleasant, comfortable stay - we will return.

Room Tip: Select a room with a nature preserve view, and not overlooking extremely busy 405.

Dear Betty08Vancouver_BC,

Thank you for your kind review of our hotel. We appreciate your feedback, and love to hear that you enjoyed your time at our hotel. The cars stationed in the "Park and Ride" across the street which you had mentioned run the risk of getting ticketed and towed by the city without proper prepaid passes.

I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed our breakfast selections, and the food and beverage team at the hotel will be very happy to read that the new options are a success.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We cannot wait to have you stay again with us.

Regards,

Teddy Wylupski | Property Coordinator

I travel extensively for work, and I must say that this hotel exceeded all my expectations. Location was convenient, staff were excellent and friendly, and the room was very large, comfortable, clean, and well suited for extended stays with a fully appointed kitchen, living room, desk, swivel flat-screen television, and comfortable bed.

Breakfast buffet every morning was very good with many choices, and was somewhat different each day to keep it interesting. On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday they have a dinner/appetizer buffet with wine and beer included, which was a very nice touch and saved me a lot in meals.

I used the gym a few times and found the machines to be good quality and in good condition with none requiring service like I find at many hotels. The treadmills and ellipticals all have their own personal TVs as well. WIFI is included and is strong throughout the hotel, and I found the speeds quite reasonable at all times.

All in all I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and will recommend it to all my colleagues. I will definitely be looking at Residence Inns (when available) for my future travel accommodations.

This is one of the most comfortable hotels we have spent time in! Everything was clean, new, staff super friendly.
Breakfast buffet is fabulous. Everything from fresh cut fruit to all the ingredients to prepare a waffle yourself, greek yogurt, granola. The coffee/ tea station was always clean.
The only bad comment about this property would be that being pet friendly, they do not ask the guests with pets to stay off the breakfast area....
Gym is very well equipped and there are sanitizer dispensers all over the hotel halls- my husband loved that!-
Washington state apples filled nice big bowls on the lobby...every little detail is so well kept! We sincerely recommend this hotel for your stay in Seattle, very conveniently located near the highway too.

Dear rosana n,

I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed your time with us, and were able to enjoy your visit in Bellevue. I apologize for the pets being in the breakfast area while you were trying to enjoy your meal. Pets are not allowed in the food service areas unless they are service animals, and I am sorry that we did not catch this. I hope that you will come back and see us again in the future.

Kind Regards,

I have stayed at a number of different residence inn since I appreciate the concept.

This one is quite a new one and has the nicest rooms that I ever had in a residence inn.

This is not the top level of hotel but at this level I give you a very good rating.

The negative thing that I had are the location next to 405 that can be disturbing, the price that I find a bit on the high side and that the parking should be free.
