We LOVED this hotel! It's easily one of the top five hotels I've ever stayed in, and we won't stay anywhere else in Seattle in the future if we can help it.
We were only going to be in Seattle for a few days in July and I just happened to be offered a good price on Expedia so I checked out the great reviews and booked.
We started our trip with a horrible travel experience with cancelled and delayed flights. We were really worried that we wouldn't make it to Seattle. We were especially worried that we would lose our first night's payment for our pre-paid room. I called the hotel from the airport in Philly and rather frantically explained our issue. Amy at the front desk couldn't have been nicer. She told me not to worry, that she would make a note so we could arrive super late and still have our room. She said to call back if the second possible flight was cancelled and she would work something out for our pre-payment issue. I was so grateful to have that off my mind as we worked to get on a new flight. By the time we finally got to Seattle it was 2am and we had been trying to get there for 14 hours. As promised, Amy had arranged everything and informed the overnight person (whose name I unfortunately didn't get) we would likely arrive very late. He was very friendly and helpful to two very weary travelers. Everyone with whom we interacted was so nice and helpful.
Our room was lovely, clean, well-appointed and a nice size. Tasteful decoration, nothing overdone. The bathroom: awesome! Neat high ceilings, such nice toiletries and, OMG, a heat light! It felt very luxurious. I feel horrible saying it, as I am being super selfish, but the only thing that could have been improved in the bathroom would have been a higher flow shower head. ;)
We couldn't swing a water view room, but honestly, you don't need it! Our city view room was beautiful and the rooftop deck gave us all the views we could possibly ask for. Sunset on the rooftop deck is incredible, so don't miss it.
The courtyard is so nice... just a peaceful little area tucked in the middle of the hotel, with outdoor seating for one of the restaurants and doors to a few shops. Once inside the courtyard you'd have no idea you are just steps from the Pike Place Market (Can I say: location, location, location!!! Fabulous and convenient to so many things we wanted to do.).
The bed was SO comfortable. I have a notoriously hard time sleeping on hotel beds, but both my husband and I slept wonderfully here. Soft, luxurious blankets too! And we loved the window seat, even without the water view. Nicely insulated windows kept out any unwanted city noise.
If you have an opportunity to stay here DO IT! You'll love it.
