If you're looking for a peaceful "zen-like" Westin stay in Seattle this is probably the best choice. Probably the nicest hotel on the northern edge of downtown, the neighborhood is more peaceful and transitions to residential in the walking-distance to the Space Needle. Minimal noise from traffic when compared with most of the other downtown hotels, particularly if you're in the North tower.
This is not your "scene" type Westin so be prepared for a quiet hotel. It did have a gym and pool which were well equipped but cramped and on a low floor. There was not a lot of service people tripping over you (which can be good or bad). If you do want luggage or reception service, go to the SE corner of the building. While there are loading zones on the west side, and it looks like there'd be service, there is not.
The room itself was very good, but didn't blow my socks off for a Platinum upgrade - just a standard room on a higher floor with a good view of the sound and the space needle. The room itself is larger than most standard room and very comfortable with the standard Westin Bed items. It is large enough to easily accommodate a rollaway bed which ALWAYS should be used instead of the sleeper sofa in any Westin. They have very nice rollaway mattresses.
All in all a very good stay and this will be the choice when downtown, even though I find the Fairmont more luxurious. The location is so much better.
