We have stayed at the Renaissance Seattle Hotel on two occasions. Once, several years ago, and again, this past month. Overall, the experiences have been consistent and positive. The hotel itself is well-kept; the rooms are comfortable - if a bit small; and the staff is very helpful. It's also pet-friendly. We have not eaten in the hotel, but the R View lounge is a great place to enjoy a few drinks and some appetizers - especially after dark.
The hotel is located in the business district, across the street from the federal courthouse and kitty-corner to the library. So, you'll have to walk a bit to get to Pike Street Market and other shopping. Off-premises meal options are also quite limited in the area - particularly on weekends, when the cafes and delis in the adjacent office towers are closed.

However, occupancy rates back up the cost of the rooms; and if you want to pay less, you're going to get less.

Thank you so much for returning to our hotel.
We do appreciate when people come and visit us and return because they had a great stay.
Seattle just like Vancouver get's expensive in the summer months, and special deals are available in the off season. Try us out in the fall and winter and you will pay almost half the price.
Again thank you and we hope we will see you again.
