“Great experience!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2007

We stayed here for four day over the Christmas holiday last year. It was a great experience for us. I don't understand why people complain about the $450 price tag when there are rooms for $250 that are great. Loved the staff...very helpful. It is a beautiful hotel, the lobby is amazing! It's a great place to snuggle up by the fire and drink the complementary apple cider or play one of the many board games they offer. Check out our pictures...

Our non smoking room had a strong cigarette smoke smell off and on our whole stay. It was terrible unless you like cigarettes.

People with kids need to be very careful. The windows over looking the water open and do not have anything to stop a child from falling out.

Not worth the cost of the room.

We stayed at the Edgewater after moving from the Westin (during peak season). My husband had a business meeting in Seattle at the Edgewater and we went out there early with our 1 year-old for a weekend getaway. Since we did not want to pay the $450 a night price-tag the entire time we were there we stayed at the Westin ($250) until his meetings. The Edgewater was more of a walk to many sites than the Westin although it was right on the water. There was also a pot festival going on at a nearby park which brought many undesirables around the hotel so walking places was a pain (and we are generally pretty liberal about such things.) The Edgewater was nicely decorated, clean and remodeled with a very cool, modern bathroom and kind of a lodge feeling decor in the room. The rooms were just too small though compared to newer hotels. The beds were older and not very comfortable. My husband outweighs me by about 50 lbs and it was like sleeping on a hill being in bed with him. The worst thing though was the air conditioner/heater. It was so loud every time it kicked on that I woke up (about every 10-20 mins) and I am a heavy sleeper! It was horrible and it blew very strongly right on the bed. Another sign of the age of the hotel I assume. Also, the hotel makes the appearance of being family friendly, a teddy bear on the bed and a cute furry pig ottoman beneath the arm chair, but really the whole hotel is just not very toddler friendly. This only matters of course to those who have little ones. They dropped off a crib which we had to set-up ourselves and it had dirty sheets that were fit for a full-sized bed. There is an electric fireplace in the middle of the room which is nice but it is hot to the touch. The shower has no door so the kiddo can just crawl in and out and no tub. The bathroom has glass shelves for towels and such but they are under the sink - low to the floor. There is also a tray that the coffee maker sits on in the room- not sturdy. Just kind of a recipe for disaster around each corner. Overall I would not recommend this hotel. I know it is supposed to be the pretentious place to stay in Seattle, but it’s definitely no Ritz Carlton.

I've lived in Seattle for some time and have always overlooked the Edge because it's been there forever and it's so old. But my boyfriend and I decided to have an in-city getaway one weekend and booked at the Edge because the weather was fabulous and we wanted to be by the water. I'm SO glad we did! The whole place is remodeled inside and very Northwest-ey and cool-looking. Our room had a private balcony with truly amazing--and super private--views of the water, the mountains--the works! We sat out on our deck during the day, drinking wine and waving at boaters and pretending we lived on waterfront property in Seattle (ha-ha). The other big surprise was the restaurant downstairs. The food was excellent, the service was 5-star and the views were fantastic. I want to go back and sit out on the deck for brunch or happy hour one of these days! It was an expensive weekend but cheaper than buying a waterfront house in this town (like that's ever going to happen!) We had such a romantic time.... Also, the service throughout this hotel was really, really great. No Seattle attitude in sight!

  • Liked — the service; the views
  • Disliked — if you don't like the smell of lake water (fishy) you won't like the waterfront rooms of the Edge

I stayed at the Edgewater during my first stay in Seattle. At over $500/night I was expecting a water front room. Well, I got the water front, but there is a giant and very noisy barge that is currently oocuyiong the space in front of the water front rooms. If you book at this hotel, please call them first and ask whether or not the barge is there. They must be drudging or something... the noise was all day 7am to 6pm. I was able to negotiate 50% off my rate, which was great...but the whole experience was very strange. The restaurant is great...literally overhangs the waters edge with a great view of Tacoma.

Stayed here in January 2007 and booked sea view room. Have to say overall I was disappointed given the price of the room. The room itself was large but dated. Overall it gave me the impression that it was need of a major refurbishment. The bathroom was particularly dated although functional. The door came off its hinges when first opened, it was repaired promptly. The room lighting was not fantastic and one of the lights in room broke but was not repaired just removed. The actual view from the room was OK although nothing to write home about. Window is just a relatively small sliding window but directly onto the sea. Artificial effect log fires in room with large plasma TV. I did hear that some of the rooms on other floors had been refurbished so if you are staying then ask for one of these rooms. A friend of mine stayed on the other side of the hotel facing the road and was awakened most nights by the freight trains blowing their horns. On the positive side I thought the bar and the restaurant were OK with good views and attentive staff. Would find somewhere else next time.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Edgewater. Things are pricey but you do get what you pay for. I had an amazing harbor view room, they hang out over the water and the windows open. On afternoon I hand fed some seagulls!

The staff was also great. Everyone I encountered, from front desk to maintaince, smiled and said hello. It was nice to see customer service taken so seriously! The only slight drawback is the location, there aren't many easy walks. The closet places to eat and shop are up a pretty steep hill. The good news is that the Edgewater has a shuttle that will drop you off anywhere downtown (and pick you up!).
