“Good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Good location, close to one of the 400+ Starbucks in the city. The bar was relatively nice and okay for people watching. The rooms are just okay, not up to the W standards in my opinion. The real let down is this property has no spa. We love the Bliss spa and products associated with W hotels. In walking distance from Pikes Market and great shopping, just wish the property was a little more upscale.

Room Tip: The higher the better.

Stayed here for a week attending a tech conference. the only thing i think they should improve on is the lighting in the rooms. the staff is warm and friendly and i was pretty happy with the service quality.

The W brand is always a great experience and the W Seattle continues that tradition. The staff is friendly and professional. The fitness center is awesome with lots of weight machines. Trace restaurant serves great sushi at night and breakfast in the morning. The rooms well appointed for the road warrior with spacious desks and great beds for a restful nights sleep. I highly recommend staying at this hotel in Seattle.

In room amenities included robes, in room safe, and an array of personal care items including body butter, soapy suds body wash and bubbly bath, facial cleanser along with shampoo, conditioner and a nice bar of soap. No coffee maker in the room although morning coffee is available in the lobby. Built in sofa window seat nice to stretch out and browse a book. The lobby "living room" with fire place is a lively gathering spot. Staff unfailingly pleasant, engaging on a personal level and very helpful. The only down side -- my next door neighbor let the door slam repeatedly in the morning when entering and exiting the room (many trips to lobby for coffee?) Newspaper offerings included local paper and Wall Street Journal. One block from the Light Rail station which is great since Light Rail provides swift and economical transport to and from SeaTac. Terrific downtown location more or less in between Space Needle and Pioneer Square; easy walk to the waterfront.

Room Tip: is there a particular view you would prefer -- the water? cityscape? ask for it!

The W Downtown Seattle is in a great location for walking. Everything you could want to do downtown Seattle can be reached from the hotel. Shopping, dining and many local attractions are within steps from the lobby.
The service from staff is top notch, as expected from a W property. The management is quick to respond to any issues, and the email follow up after the stay only confirmed the exceptional level of service offered.
Rooms and public areas are tastefully decorated in a stylish decor. Rooms are clean well kept.

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.

Room Tip: Confirm your floor level and be sure to request the side away from the garage. I have a feeling thi...

Room was very nice. We had a corner room with many windows, unfortunately it overlooks other buildings, so the view isnt anything beautiful. The bed was very comfortable, the room was very spacious. The hotel itself is very dark inside, which felt creepy when returning to our room late at night. The packed the bar with many people (company party) and were served quickly and efficiently.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room, much more natural light.
