We recently enjoyed our first visit to Seattle and were really happy with our hotel choice of Hotel Andra. The location is great and the service was excellent. It is about 3 blocks from the Pikes Place area and the monorail. The valet/car cost is a bit steep but I suppose even self parking would have been pricey. With that however, our car was always ready and waiting for us, so you feel like at least the service is worth the cost. I would highly recommend it for a home base in Seattle.
