When traveling for work, I try to stay in loyal to Starwood Properties and often choose the W if available. The W in Seattle was very disappointing. The corner suite was small, fine, but was eye level with a parking garage that was literally feet away. I had to keep my curtains drawn the entire 3 days I stayed there so strange men couldn't see into my room (they could have--I saw and heard them). The funny part is that you pay more for the corner suites, but I would have much rather had a non-corner room on that level if it meant I could face something other than a parking lot. I have a feeling they often receive complaints as they told me that I didn't have a "great view" and gave me free wifi to make up for it before I even saw the room.
I should note that Seattle is a great city with many cool areas, but the hotel is right in the middle of a business district and is completely desolate in the evenings. Overall, I will stick with Starwood and probably stay at another W elsewhere (for the Bliss products if nothing else), but I will definitely look elsewhere next time I'm in Seattle.
