This is a hotel designed for conferences and large hordes of tourists, with little comforts unless you're in one of those two categories (and probably not even then). Rooms are extremely large and fairly comfortable, with good beds, sofas, and a nice and well kept bathroom. However, if you venture outside your room you'll find that the hotel lacks most amenities a tourist or occasional visitor may perhaps value.
First of all, it is way too big, so the gym etc are usually crowded, and you even have to queue to check in, take the lift up to your room or ask the concierge for help with anything. The staff itself seemed wary and tired of all the people begging their attention, as they were rather unfriendly and not really helpful. The lobby is oddly organised and seems to be more like the corridor of a shopping centre than a real lobby. There's no proper restaurant as such, just a burger joint that serves mediocre food at inflated prices. The room service menu is equally limited and over-priced, and the food they serve sub-standard, especially for a city like Seattle.
All in all, the hotel's atmosphere is such that you either want to seclude yourself in your room or spend your day outside. The rest is not really welcoming.
