“Best bar in the lobby”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2008

I meet a friend here every year. Pop down the elevator and you're at Oliver's -- a great place for a few drinks while people watching. Great location.

Perfect location. Gorgeous looking hotel. Rooms are tiny tiny tiny. Bathroom has no bath just a shower. The service has really slipped here, but it is still an okay place to stay. Do not expect to have doors opened for you and to be treated like you are at the Ritz-Carlton. Also, I disagree with some of the other writers, I could hear my neighbors through the walls. I would recommend staying for one night, but a 4-5 night stay in the claustrophobic room is maddening. The restaurant attached to the hotel, Andaluca, is one of Seattle's finest. The service at the bar Oliver's is not great, but it has wonderful old world ambiance which makes it feel authentic and fun.

The Mayflower was a very pretty historic hotel located in a good area of town that was convenient to the public market, lots of great restaurants, shopping, and nightlife. The staff were very friendly and accomodating and our room was large and well-maintained with a very comfortable bed. My only complaint is that the bathroom was pretty tiny but it really wasn't much of an issue for just two people.

The hotel lounge had very good martinis but be sure and stay away from the desserts! Ours was eight dollars for the worst bread pudding by a "pastry chef" I've ever had. The only down side to the hotel was that it was a little pricey and the valet parking is VERY expensive. However, that will be the situation with any hotel in downtown Seattle. Overall, the hotel was great and we will definitely stay there again when we return.

Mayflower Hotel was excellent. The location is absolutely perfect - a nice stroll to the Pike Street Market, with some awesome shopping close by - Macy's, Nordstrom, A&F, J. Crew, etc. just a block away. The hotel was clean and comfortable with good beds, and the lounge made a wicked G&T! I was particularly impressed with the help we received from the concierge - he came up with a couple of great restaurant suggestions and was very helpful to newcomers to the city.

The bathrooms are, indeed, small. Not much room to put a toiletry bag. Our room was on the 10th floor and it was very spacious - two queen beds and lots of room to move around.

I'd stay there again without question - the location and comfort of the hotel were exceptional.

Stayed here with my company one night following an off-site meeting. The location is great- within walking distance of the Seattle Center (and Space Needle), Pike Place Market, Pacific Place (shopping center), and adjoining to Westlake Center. The monorail stop is really close. We were in a corner room on the 7th floor, and I thought it was a reasonable size. The bed was comfortable and the room had a good view of downtown Seattle streets.

Furniture and overall decorating scheme were nice enough, but I think the carpet and bathrooms could use updating. The bathroom sink was nice, but the tub looked a bit ancient and not really in a cute historical way. However, the service was GREAT and everyone was nice. Valet parking was free, and when I realized I had forgotten a toothbrush, I was brought one (and toothpaste) within 5 minutes. Also, I didn't use it, but there was free wireless internet. A lot of hotels nickel and dime you, so it was nice to not have that happen.

One strange thing was...we had oatmeal raisin cookies at our work meeting, and I found olives in mine...not sure if that was on purpose or not but GROSS!

Wow! What a wonderful hotel - such a shame we could only stay one night.

Location - Convenient to just about everything Seattle has to offer.
Rooms - Beautiful! Clean! Just like the photos.
Staff - Wonderful! Helpful! Funny! The Concierge was a riot who was also very, very helpful in booking things.
Room Service - for tired travellers it was quick and delicious.

Would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in Seattle, it was a pleasure and when we can return again this is where we'll stay.

This hotel was one of the best I've stayed at. This boutique-style hotel provided impeccable attention to detail. From the front-desk staff, to the valet parking staff, to the concierge services, to the housekeeping staff--everything was top-notch.

If you're looking to be in the heart of Seattle, this location can't be beat. The hotel is directly across the street from Macys and is connected to the Westlake Center on the Mezzanine level. We were only four blocks from Pikes Market and were within walking distance to the Space Needle and the big REI store.

We booked a Corporate Comforts package, which rolled the parking right into our nightly rate. Our first night was $199, and the subsequent nights at $181 (plus taxes)--so it was an amazing value for the location.

We had a corner guestroom, which was actually two separate rooms. The main room had a large sofa, chair, ottoman, table large television/armoire, wet bar with mini-sink, mini-frig, and work desk. Complimentary high-speed internet was provided for our laptop. We needed a roll-away brought in for our daughter for a couple of nights, and there was plenty of space for that in the front room. The roll-way was not your typical "folded-up" bed, but a thick twin-size mattress on a platform. One large window in each room faced west, plus one additional large window in the main room faced north.

There was a glass-paneled door connecting the two rooms. The bedroom had a king-size bed with a heavy comforter and a down-filled blanket. Six Pacific Coast down pillows were on the bed. Also in this room were a wooden valet, large dresser, two nightstands, and a high-definition television.

The bathroom was located off the bedroom. Although not overly large, it was well appointed with very nice toiletries. A hair dryer, iron and ironing board were located in the closet, as were two robes.

Considering we were in the heart of downtown, we really didn't hear much noise at night--other than an occasional siren. The rooms are very well sound-proofed, and we didn't hear anyone next to us or on the floor above. The nightly turn-down service was a nice surprise. There were individual heating/cooling controls in each of the rooms, which allowed us to adjust each room independently.

We didn't eat in the hotel's restaurant, so we can't comment on that. There are many dining places closeby, including several Starbucks, many take-out places in the Westlake Center, and a Cheesecake Factory a few blocks away.

This hotel would not be particularly attractive for families with young children--especially if you need a pool or game area. It would be a great match for most other travelers if you're looking for a unique hotel with great service. We would absolutely stay at this hotel if we're ever in Seattle again and highly recommend it.
