“historic hotel in great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2010

We stayed at the Mayflower Park for 2 nights during a recent house hunting trip in Washington. We wanted to stay downtown somewhere near Pikes Market and the Mayflower Park was perfect. The hotel was reasonably priced when compared to other downtown options. I had no complaints and would not hesitate to stay here again. Will be recommending to friends and family when they come out to visit.

I stayed here with a friend in one of the "classic" rooms. It was a lovely room, if a bit small, and very clean. The furnishings are also classic, in keeping with the heritage style of the charming hotel, but it had free wireless and a flat-screen lcd. One thing that we didn't like was that our neighbor had telephone conferences both mornings between 6-7am (East Coast hours?) and that woke us up due to very thin walls. We could hear every word, and she was being a bit loud, but not excessively so. That was the only annoying thing about our stay-but if I'd remembered earplugs that would've solved it easily. The bed was decent. The restaurant and bar were both fantastic. i would definitely stay here again.

Decided to take a 4 day break at the end of February 2010, and took a trip to Seattle and stayed at the Mayflower Park Hotel. I have stayed here before for one night prior to taking a cruise to Alaska. This time time stayed 4 nights just to seed the sights around Seattle.
The Mayflower Park is one of only two hotels in Seattle that is listed as a historical hotel. In was built in the 1920's and is a beautiful property. I stayed in what the hotel calls the classic room. It is a comfortable room with one queen bed. The room is not huge but comfortable for two people. Even though we were on the 10th floor we could still hear the traffic in the morning. It wasn't a big deal but be aware you are downtown and you will hear the commute traffic in the morning. The bathroom was also nice and has body soap and shampoo supplied by the hotel. They are in big containers on the wall in the shower. I liked that touch because I hate trying in open those little plastic shampoo containers. The hotel has a great bar on the first floor. They are well known for martini's if that is your drink. They always were busy each night so the locals and hotel guests must have liked their drinks.
What is really nice about this hotel is the location. You are right downtown and have access to everything. The monorail is within the same block. This monorail is a direct link to the Space Needle. Also you have the last stop of the Seattle Light Rail one block away. This is a great benefit. Let me explain. We arrived at the SEATAC Airport and proceeded to the light rail station which is at the airport. Now get this, the fare from the airport to downtown Seattle is only $2.50. There are only 9 stops from the airport to the last station which is Westlake. Only a block from the Mayflower. This trip only takes 35 minutes. Get this, the trains are not crowded. I don't think most travelers know about the light rail system. It opened in December 2009 and it still is not crowded. It was easy to bring our luggage on the train and comfortably ride to Seattle. Also, the trains are new and the seats and interiors are clean and there is no grafitti. Also, the people I saw riding the train were travelers from the airport and people coming or going to work. I strongly suggest you ride the train. Can't beat it for the money and it takes you downtown. The last station is at 5th and Pine which is close to the Mayflower, Westin, and other hotels.
Another great tip. If you want to go up the Space Needle make reservations at the Sky lounge to eat. This will save you the $15 per person to go up to the viewing level. With lunch at the restaurant they give you a free ride up. The food at the restaurant is a little expensive but it is good. So you can eat and get a great view. The restaurant turns and it takes 47 minutes to make a complete revolution. You will see the 360 degree view of the Seattle area.
Last but not least. There are a few great restaurants just a block from the Mayflower Hotel. Everyone in Seattle knows Tom Douglas for his eating establishments. He is know for great food and I agree. On 4th and Virginia Streets he has two restaurants which I recommend. One is called Dahlia Lounge and right across the street is Lola's. I didn't eat at the Dahlia but I has breakfast two days in a row at Lola's. I fell in love with their granola with greek yoghurt. The granola is homemade and to die for. Another restaurant that is between 3rd and 4th street on Virginia is called Serious Pie. This is a great pizza place. Check it out on the internet. Ate there two nights and they have great pizza. The staff is very friendly and they make sure you have a good time. The pizza crust is very thin and they only use applewood to heat their oven to cook the pizza.
So to end this. GREAT LOCATION to a lot of Seattle's sights and fine restaurants. Go and have some fun.

We stayed here Sat, Feb 6, 2010, and made a wonderful choice. The Mayflower is on the national register of historic hotels. It was had a delightful, helpful staff who gave me the impression that they truely enjoy working at this hotel. The hotel is located a block from Nordstron's flagship store and across the street from Macy's. The icing on the cake is the fact that it's 2 1/2 blocks from Nordstrom's Rack! We enjoyed the hotel's morning breakfast and their restaurant-made sausage. We told the waiter how GREAT it was and he offered to give us the recipe.
The place was clean and we both felt safe in this area of downtown Seattle. We'll be back. Thank you manager Paul Ishii and staff--this is a grand place

Stayed here for 8 nights and everything was great. Although the room was a little small, it was cosy and the bed was very comfortable.

Service was good and the front-desk staff were always friendly and helpful. Complimentary wireless internet worked without any problems although the speed was a little slow at times.

Hotel location is fantastic. The hotel is just 10 minutes walk to Pike's Market and the Waterfront. Next door is the Westlake Centre where you can take the monorail to the Space Needle. For shopping, Macy's is on left and Nordstrom is on the right. Lots of eating places and restaurants nearby including a really good one (Andaluca) which is in the hotel.

Will definitely stay here again when I am in Seattle.

I can't recommend the Mayflower park hotel highly enough! We just returned from celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary out there, and this hotel played a prominant role in our very positive experience of Seattle. In recognition of our anniversary, they upgraded our hotel room for all 3 night's stay, and sent champagne to our table at dinner. From the front desk to the hotel restaurant, everyone was warm and hospitable.

The hotel itself is also top quality. Our room was spacious, with quality details throughout, and a charming feel. Their restaurant is highly rated, and in a collection of excellent meals-their's standsout. The location is extremely convenient-just a couple blocks off the water, and a few more blocks walk to the ferrys. And last but not least, very reasonable for such a central location.

I would recommend this hotel for anyone visiting Seattle, and we will always stay there in the future. Of course, we first heard about the Mayflower Park from other travelers on the forum, so we're just adding to the chorus of compliments for this gem of a hotel!
