“Cosy lodge”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2007

The hotel location right on the water is what this place is all about. Regretably, renovation work to the waterside facia, meant the comfy lounge area with its open fire's and sofa's had it's windows sheeted off (stayed early November 07). Views could however be obtained from the less cosy, modern bar area.

The hotel is in a lodge style, but has a modern trendy bar and restaurant; which despite being opposites, actually attract.

On arrival, the expense of the valet parking is eased by a large fire pit.

The service at the hotel was great, especially the concierge who knew his stuff.

We had upgraded to a waterfront room, as that was the 'whole deal' of the hotel. The room was small, or maybe was so crammed with furniture such as big lounge chairs by the fire and a small desk and chair, that it just appeared that way.

The theme was all about sitting by the cosy fireplace (gas fired log fire which was easily controlled). Great just to sit there in a robe with a glass of wine and enjoy the sea view, but not sure how the ambience would of been overlooking a car park and noisy main road, so glad we upgraded.

The bathroom was large, with walk-in stoned-tiled shower and great toiletries. Fantastic shower with water pressure to refresh the dead.

Room service was poor, food arrived over cooked and not very appetising. Additionally, the lobby areas were looking a little worn and tired, as was the room if viewed with an over critical eye.

Very enjoyable however and not too far from the main city shops, albeit a $5cab ride was ideally necessary.

Would recommend this hotel if you want a relaxing stay in a cosy room and make use of the hotel views.

My husband and I stayed at the Edgewater for 2 nights. The location was excellent and within walking distance to many things (Space Needle, Experience Music Project, Sci-Fi Museum, Pike's Place). The hotel offers a free hourly shuttle to attractions in the area but in our only attempt to use it, there wasn't enough room (it can only accomodate max. 7 people and is on a first come first serve basis).

We stayed on the fourth floor in a "city-view" room. We weren't offered an upgrade, nor did we ask for one. The room itself had a rustic feel, while the bathroom appeared to have undergone recent renovations. There was noise coming from the street (and trains do run throughout the night!) but it didn't bother us.

My only major gripe about this hotel was the $26+ a day parking fee.

We arrived late on a Thursday night at about 11pm. After a five hour flight and rental car pick-up we were hungry and wanted a glass of wine. We checked in, changed clothes and went down to the lobby area. We found out the kitchen was closed and NO food was available. SO we proceeded to the bar area. The waitress quickly informed us that it was last call and we were rushed and hurried out. Not a very nice impression at all. For the money you expect 24 hour room service at least!! Then we get into our room and realize that we overlook (room 243) the front enterance and valet. So throughout the night we were awakened by the goofing off of the valet people. In the morning it was so loud we called and complained. The bathroom lighting was dingy and dark (nice hot shower though). I went out to open the drapes to get more light in the room and was face to face with someone coming down the outside stairs. SO we had to keep the drapes shut the entire trip. DO NOT LET THEM PUT YOU IN ROOM 243!! Now some nice things, the decor is precious and very well decorated (carpet is stained in most places though). Anyway, the Edgewater sent a survey after and I complained about the same things. The Marriott right down there on the water looked so clean, new and nice that would be my choice next trip. Seallte itself was perfect - great food, people, scenery!

We stayed 4 nights at the Edgewater Hotel during the end of October. The hotel is very clean and quite different from other hotels in its class. The lobby, bar and restaurant decor is that somewhat of an eclectic lodge style. When you arrive, the drive through entrance to the hotel has an enormous fire place in the valet area.

The service at the hotel was great at the front desk, bar and restaurant.

We had an upgraded waterfront room. The room was a bit small - or appeared that way by the oversized lounging chairs and the king sized bed. It reminded me of room sizes in Europe. The rooms continued the same Lodge Style decor of the lobby area. The bed mattress and linens were very comfortable. The room had a fireplace which heated the room very quickly. The bathroom was large, but most of the space was taken by an oversized stoned-tiled shower and a separate full sized "club footed" bathtub. The amenities in the restroom were better than most 5 star hotels. No need to bring special soaps, rinses or conditioners.
This place has that covered. Make sure you put towels you want replaced on the floor in the mornings. The room has a small refrigerator, but all the space is occupied with the hotel’s offerings. Be sure to take a look at the price sheet in the room before deciding to chow down on the chocolates, chips and sodas. The room also had WiFi for $10 a night.

In the reviews, everyone advises getting a waterside room because of the city side noise. I am not sure I agree. The hotel is on the water right next to the Ferry operation to Canada. If you stay on the water side, you will hear waves banging the dock equipment against the dock all night - it reminded me of someone banging on symbols. If you stay on the City Side, you will hear the comings and goings of the cars driving in and out of the hotel - including the occasional train whistle (the tracks are directly in front of the hotel). So, if you have the window to your room open, you are going to hear noise. After
mentioning the noise issue to the front desk, they offered us ear plugs. However, if you have the window closed, you hardly hear a thing. Keep in mind, this Hotel is not air conditioned and in the summer you will want the window open.

One other thing about the rooms - BE ADVISED - the hotel's meeting rooms are on the 2nd floor and meeting preparations start as early as 6am. If you stay on the second floor, you will be awakened by the noises from people attending these meetings. We literally had a businessman camped outside our door on a loud cell phone call for over
30 minutes one morning. It was very annoying. Do not stay on the 2nd floor.

The hotel is centrally located. They offer shuttle service around the area (no airport pickup or delivery – Taxi fare = $35). The Seattle Market is less than a 10 minute walk. Many things to do and see right along the waterway not far from the hotel.

All in all, I would stay there again.

  • Liked — Comfortable Bed
  • Disliked — All the noise from outside dock and hotel hallways.

We stayed here before a cruise in 2 rooms, 4 adults. Ages
from 30's to 60's. Excellent location for cruiser's, you can walk
right to pier 67.
Lobby and rooms are more "forest lodge" decor while lounge
and restaurant are very modern and interesting. Views from the
lounge are great as you are right over the water. For those that
suffer from "mal de mar" it could be a problem, but then it's a
good precurser for your cruise.
Rooms are small with fireplaces and some have city view which
are fine but not very scenic. Bathrooms are tiny but fully equipped and stylish.Nice amenities in bathrooms. Very clean, neat rooms.
Service was friendly if not always accurate with information.
It's a long uphill walk to restaurants and shopping. Seattle has
good transportation system though.
Be sure to visit the flight museum outside the city.

  • Liked — cozy decor and clean.
  • Disliked — small rooms.

I stayed at the Edgewater for 2 nights while attending a business meeting that was held at the hotel. This was actually by second stay at the hotel and while my first experience was not bad I beleive my most recent experience was better.

The hotel is located on the waterfront in downtown Seattle and feels like (and is decorated) a lodge rather than a corporate hotel. It's walking distance to Pike Place Market and a few restaurants. Restaurant 67 is located in the hotel and there is also a bar which has a pretty extensive wine and drink list.

Unfortunately, I did not have a view of the water from my room but I found the room to be quite enjoyable. The room was very clean; each room has a fireplace; the bed was very comfortable; and the bathroom has a beautiful stone shower. Guests can also find an umbrella in the closest which comes in handy given the frequency of rain in Seattle.

The hotel offers wireless internet for a fee.

The things that aren't so great include the business center and the gym. The equipment in the gym is a bit dated.

Overall, I was pleased with my stay and would patronize this hotel in the future.

My husband and I spent 2 nights and 1 cold stormy day in Oct. 2007 at the Edgewater. We found the hotel's decor unique and impressive. We liked the in-room Starbucks coffee, the world's best showerhead, the wonderful pillows and comfortable beds, the waterfront lobby, and the free hourly shuttle service to downtown attractions.

Our room faced the parking lot, not the water. A train goes by this side of the hotel several times a day (and night), but we found that the closed windows provided good soundproofing. However, if the windows are open to cool the room, the noise level would be very disturbing. Fortunately, we were aware of this problem and brought good earplugs. We understand that the waterview rooms can also be noisy due to cruise ship and barge traffic.

We enjoyed our stay at the Edgewater and would return.
