Have stayed here twice now, both booked through Priceline - one name your own price and the other through an express deal. It's a great place to stay if you're looking for something central. It was under 30 minutes to walk to Safeco Field or Century Link Field. It was about 10-15 minutes to Pike Place Market and close to shopping and restaurants.
I understand all the complaints about valet parking or parking in general downtown! Really, $40 per day?! I just don't understand it but I also don't know of any hotels downtown where parking is free. If you do, please let me in on the secret. It was nice to just park our car though, leave it, and walk all over downtown.
It appears as though they are slowly renovating rooms throughout the hotel. You can tell it's an old property (some of the carpet and floors smell in certain areas) but they are trying to up date. I LOVED our bed. We literally melted into our mattress and did not move. I believe it may be a foam mattress? But regardless, it's one of the most comfortable beds at a hotel that I've slept in awhile. My other complaint as far as the property was the noise. The first time we stayed was New Years Eve and I don't recall hearing my neighbors but this time we could hear the people next to us talking. They weren't talking loudly so I guess the walls are just thin?! Like I said, this wasn't a problem last time on another floor.
We avoided the expensive all you can eat buffet for breakfast and opted to walk down the block to other more appealing and reasonably priced options.
I'd stay again, as I feel it's in a good location, staff were warm and friendly and for the price the hotel is not bad at all.
