Hotels can wow me largely in 2 ways: 1. Deliver a lot tonne of value for the money or 2. Deliver above my expectations for the brand/rating. Hyatt House exceeded in both ways by miles.
It's graded as a 3 star hotel but his is cut above a Holiday Inn, a Hilton and a Crowne Plaza. The bed is a 3 star bed (not as plush as a Hyatt or a Pan Pacific) but all the other furnishings are high quality and 4 star like. The amenities are also a cut above - for example, the restaurant is modern, comfortable and has an outdoor fire pit. It's a nice place to spend a bit of time. The kitchenette is well stocked with everything you need to cook up basic meals and the fridge is big enough to hold the makings of a great party.
Value-wise, I can't remember another hotel that deliver so much for so little. The free breakfast includes a full selection of hot and cold foods including an omelette bar. It was very busy on Sunday morning and the staff couldn't keep up with the demand for a while but otherwise this was a very impressive spread. Parking is included as well as fast wi-fi with no restrictions. The TV doesn't have those annoying hotel menus so you can get right to watching TV. Service was excellent, Ashley at front desk was warm and knowledgable and all the staff were very helpful and friendly.
This hotel is ideal for both people on business or families who want flexibility.
I was there to visit someone in Redmond and the location is great for those who are in Redmond or Bellevue - the supermarkets and restaurants are walking distance. It's pretty far from Seattle but considering the value proposition it's a place I will consider even if my plans are in Seattle.
