“Delightful: views, design, location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2011

The location is fantastic. You have to pay a bit extra to get a room over the water, but it's worth it. It's a unique experience. This is a hotel that's part of your trip, not just where you sleep. There's a gas fireplace with a great lodge-style design: a bear ottoman, claw foot tub. The lobby/lounge is great (piano player and all). Even the elevators are designed well.
Pike place market and other sites are walking distance.
The bartenders at the hotel restaurant are super friendly too and there's a band on Fri and Sat nights.
This was a solo business trip with an extra day and a half added on for visiting Seattle.

We were in Seattle for our wedding anniversary. When We booked our room I called prior to arrival to make sure that we had a water view.
When we arrived to Edgewater we were a little worried with the decore. VERY rustic, strange fake trees every where in the lobby. Kind of dark? We received our room key and proceeded down a long creepy dingy, smelly,narrow hallway to our room.
We were shocked to find out that we didn't have a water view! The room was so small there was barely room for a bed! Immediately I called the front desk I was told that they were out of waterview rooms. We were given an option of a room with 2 beds. The new room was normal in size. Nothing exciting. Needless to say totally disappointing. Will not be back and we are not recommending to family and friends.

We had stayed 2 days prior at The Hyatt Place near the space needle. Now that's Awesome hotel! Book a room at the Hyatt and you wont be disappointed!!

We stayed here in July before an Alaskan cruise. The location is ideal for this as the pier used by Celebrity is literally next door. It was delightful to just walk the suitcases over to board the ship. Also an easy walk to PikePlace Market and the associated restaurants. The hotel was a bit worn, at least in the rooms, but the rustic decor makes it seem intentional. However, everything was comfortable, the people friendly and the views wonderful. Breakfast in the restaurant was excellent. The Marriott was also near the dock, but the Edgewater was much better situated and a better value.

Stayed one night to do some Christmas shopping in downtown Seattle; I live one hour away. The view of Elliot Bay from our room was beautiful and the outside deck spacious. However the decor can only be described as odd. A "mountain cabin" theme, with an Eastern inspired bathroom. The elevator was dirty, with worn carpeting.The lounge was lovely. A real plus is the hourly shuttle service to the downtown area, and the hotel is within walking distance of harborside shops and restaurants. I might add that the room was very clean, but the empty cabinets that once housed the old style televisions should be removed. I think this hotel needs a remodel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a water view, or you will be looking out at the parking lot.

The Edgewater had a friendly, knowledgeable and helpful staff that made up for the fact that our room was very poorly designed. The bathroom lighting makes it impossible for women to put on their makeup, do their hair or complete the myriad other tasks they must accomplish before going out the door. The bed was not up to the standards of any of the other hotels I stayed in over the last several years. The hotel has a great location, being the only hotel that is located right on Seattle's waterfront and it is convenient to Pike Place Market, Pioneer Square, Seattle Center, and many of the other neighborhoods of Seattle.

One of the hotel's claims to fame is that the Beatles stayed there during their 1st United States tour in the 1960s. As a result they have a number of photographs of the Beatles and other entertainers who stayed there over the years.

Their downtown shuttle is a very nice amenity, and I cannot praise the staff too highly. They were friendly, accommodating, efficient, and thoughtful. The hotel was quiet in the room had a gas fireplace. Unfortunately controlling the temperature was difficult, and it was frequently to warm in the room, which caused us to turn the heat off completely.

The only meal we ate at the hotel was breakfast, and the food and service were both excellent.

We did have a waterfront room, and since we looked at the rooms on the other side of the hallway, I would agree with Kaytwowa, do not even think about staying in any room that does not have a water view. From the other side of the hotel you see the parking lot, the soon to be torn down Alaskan Way Viaduct and the railroad tracks. Surprisingly, the trains were barely heard inside our room, and we never heard our neighbors, so the hotel is obviously well constructed from a sound standpoint.

If you are looking for a waterfront hotel in Seattle or you are a Beatles fanatic, I would recommend the Edgewater.

Room Tip: If possible, stay on the 4th floor, but you must get a water view room. To do otherwise defeats the...

We came for the football game & stayed two nites. It was very nicely decorated for Christmas. Very nice rooms. Food in restaurant was excellent. City view was nice, could see space needle. Not noisy for us. Enjoyed our visit tremendously.

Upon my recent stay at the Edgewater, I enjoyed the view of Seattle as the Christmas lights shown. It was so beautiful and the Edgewater just added to my enjoyment.
