My wife and I stayed here for nine nights across the New Year into 2014. We would stay here again should downtown Seattle beckon. The hotel’s location is conveniently located right in-between Seattle’s Medical district and Seattle’s downtown, with both in walking distance. Just across from the hotel is the very pleasant Jim Ellis Freeway Park. We have walked the entire Medical District from the hotel, and to the water’s edge with Pike Place Market, the piers and Washington State Ferries. We are both retired and can say they are reasonable walks. We took the Light Rail from the airport to University Station, caught a taxi for $7 (with tip) to haul us and our suitcases up to the hotel. Once checked in, the walk to the Light Rail is just 3 blocks down, 1 block over, very easy. Our room was spacious, beautiful downtown view, excellent HVAC, with the requested two beds, a refrigerator, no microwave, and just barely enough electric outlets for our gadgets. Parts of the hotel are under renovation which never disturbed us. We were in our room a lot, and housekeeping was excellent about refreshing our room when we requested it. The food quality from room service handled by the hotel’s Regatta Bar and Grill was excellent. It was so tasty we even repeated some evening dishes and the service took only 18-22 minutes after calling. If you want to buy some groceries, there is a minimal shop one block south of the hotel at 5th and Seneca, with a real IGA Grocery at 3rd and Pike. We slept really well as this hotel is quiet, though you hear the occasional ambulance running up into the Medical District. If you are an IHG Priority Club Member you’ll like the additional Continental Breakfast and Evening Snacks. Hotel staff were always friendly and helpful. Finally and essential nowadays, the wireless Internet service was reliable and fairly speedy. If you have a mess o’ dirty clothes we walked to Crystal Clean Laundromat, 1718 Bellevue Avenue, .8 miles, 20 minute walk, clean, a lot of machines.
