The hotel van shuttle makes this hotel a smart buy. Free transportation to the light rail line into Seattle or the airport, or to the nearby mall and restaurants means double the savings: no reantal car needed and much cheaper room rate than downtown Seattle. Do tip the driver if you are using this service. Bar can do the most popular drinks but don't expect fancy nightclub blender drinks. Restaurant for morning breakfast is a real winner with made to order omlets, French Toast and Waffles. Front desk staff were always helpful with advise and directions. Take the free shuttle van to Dukes Oyster Bar for lunch or dinner in the nearby Mall if stying here. The chowder is outstaniding.
