“Excellent Hotel: Amazing Views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2007

Stayed one night after booking on Priceline (2 adults, 2 kids). Boutique hotel is in a spectacular waterfront setting right on the pier. Staff were great. Views are breathtaking. Great lobby area takes in the water view and is very comfortable. The "hunting lodge" decor which some reviews take offense too seemed rather tasteful and appropriate to me (if you want bland, stay at a chain). Water side rooms get the views plus added amenities such as nicer bathrooms and flat panel tvs. City side rooms are almost as good but look backwards onto downtown. Major caveat on the city side rooms is the noise from the train tracks which are very close. Trains run all night. The hotel should invest in better soundproofing for the city side windows. Restaurant ("67") also has the amazing view and has excellent food. $26 valet parking charge is a little steep but not out of line for downtown Seattle. A regular lot across the street from the hotel is cheaper. It is about a 15 minute walk to the main part of downtown.

  • Liked — Spectacular waterfront views
  • Disliked — Noise from train tracks nearby.

Girls weekend out, got a great deal on the room (through an auction) ...supposedly a "city view" which turned out to be a view of the parking lot and on street level (don't open the drapes!).

Our room smelled quite musty, however, on the plus side, recently renovated bathrooms (very nice) and comfortable beds. The staff were nice, and the hotel was conveniently located near to many amenities (Market, restaurants, cruise terminal etc).

The lounge served wonderful appetizers, and the view from the deck of the lounge/restaurant was very pleasant.

Whomever decorated took the theme to the extreme....quite tacky (what's with the "trees" in the lobby? Metal articulated joint branches?)

There are far nicer boutique hotels (with character) to stay at in Seattle, so I wouldn't stay here again, especially if I had to pay the full price they ask for a "city view" room ($259).

  • Liked — food at the lounge/restaurant
  • Disliked — the room location (parking lot level and parking lot view), musty smell

We booked on Priceline and I was quite shocked that they considered this hotel a 4-star. It just is not what we are used to!!

The Good -
1. Nice crisp bed linens
2. Nice views of the water from some rooms, and the lobby and restaurant
3. the hotel shop had some nice things for sale

The Bad -
1. The decor is too kitschy for words. Birchbark print wallpaper. Bears on lampshades. Every stick of furniture made from raw logs or antlers.
2. Weird musty smell
3. Valet parking is a total ripoff and unneccessary
4. Charging for wireless internet
5. Very pricey restaurant
6. Lasting impression of the Manager at the front desk was of bra straps and weird panty lines - not professional-looking!
7. Rough stone tile floor in bathroom - no way it could be kept clean - a haven for yucky stuff like maybe plantar wart viruses!
7. Way too expensive for what it is - a motor hotel trying to pretend it's a first-rate hotel

Might be a problem for some...
Tiny rooms
Shower only in some rooms
train noise might be bothersome
location amongst the tourist trap area, quite a walk to downtown shops

Pros:
The nice reception area with comfortable furniture and an amazing view.
The room design makes you want to stay there.
Great bed with lots of pillows.
The sitting area with the fireplace could not be more relaxing.
Best toiletries ever and a very comfortable bathrobe.
Rooms with bears are the best!


Cons:
City view rooms are pretty much parking lot view and those in the ground and the first floor have people passing next to your window all the time. This makes you feel you're in a cheap motel.
Walls are very very thin and you can hear other rooms conversations, tv, and what not.
I was not very thrilled wifi was not complementary
The restaurant's menu could have more variety.

Spent two plus weeks traveling the west coast and staying in the best
hotels, and was not disappointed in any of them until arriving at the
Edgewater Hotel in Seattle. It's a wooden framed and floored hotel with paper thin walls and you can hear everything and everyone around, above, below and in between. Literally was kept awake all night with slamming doors, toilets flushing, phones ringing, people coughing, people walking in the room above, a metal pier outside the room with large metal drums banging against it with the waves, did not have enough hot water to half fill the claw footed tub, and to top it all off, at 6:00a.m. Sat. morning the wait staff began setting
up a conference room directly across from our room for a morning breakfast. They banged the chairs, tables and dishes for an hour then
the attendees arrived at 7:00 and proceeded to greet one another, talk on cell phones right outside our door. We complained, received a release from our reservation, and moved to another hotel. And imagine...all of this charm for a mere $500.00 per night plus $10.00 for internet connection and a whopping $26.50 for parking per night. What a deal! Wouldn't return to this hotel if given a freeby....and by the way...this is the first negative review or review of any kind I've ever written...that's how bad it was.

I stayed here for one night on business and was never in the place during daylight, sadly. So I missed the view and did not mind my city-side room at all. The room was a little on the small side (and eentsy-teentsy sized TV) but perfectly adequate. Great mattress and linens. I loved the bathroom, with stone floors and shower. Great service at the front desk, arranging transportation to the airport at 4:30 a.m. However, i thought the price ($279) was a little pricey for what you got.

This was one of my favorite hotel stays ever. My mom and I booked a regular room and had no idea the hotel was on a pier. When we arrived, the front desk offered us a two room suite for free, right on the water. My mom and I had a great time and have pictures of us having breakfast on our "deck" - we had a friendly seagull hanging out too. We loved it!
