“Good stay.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Comfortable place to lay your head and a good base if exploring the city for the first time. Location is quite convenient and taxis easy to hail. The room we had was very clean and tidy but nothing really special, although we did go for the most economical option. Maybe if you paid for an upgrade you'd have a fancier room. Staff all nice enough and breakfast was fresh and tasty. There was a whole bunch of different types of people stopping here so whatever your age you would fit in fine. The gym is very busy and overcroweded and I had to wait a long time before using the treadmill. There are many restaurants in the area but best is to ask the hotel as they offered us a list of great restuarants.

The hotel is located in down town Seattle with easy access to all neighborhoods. The staff is really friendly and helpful at all times. Room is modern and the gym was great with nice pool, jacuzzi and steam. We had amazing breakfast at Urbane every morning, and drinks at night-best hotel restaurant we have been to in a long time.

Apparently LEED means small rooms, low water pressure and a 30 second wait for hot water. Way overpriced for what you got. Breakfast at the restaurant was good. Walls were thin, as I could hear a conservation in the next room. Next time it is the Grand Hyatt.

Pros: good location; helpful staff, fantastic gym and excellent breakfast.

Cons: pool and hot tub looked very grubby (but perhaps it was the woman changing her baby's diaper on the chaise that put us off); weak wifi signal in lobby; towels are terrible.

For a business hotel, suggest they up the price by $10 and include internet connectivity/wifi. It is just annoying to have to pay for what is a basic amenity.

Located at the centre of Seattle, it's at walking distance to various shopping malls and Pike Place Market. This is not the typical great grand hotel, but it's simple, clean and comfortable. Services are good, the staff is friendly. One minor thing might be that the choice at the snack bar is a bit limited. Having said that, we did not require much services or attention during our short stay (2 nights), hence haven't been able to comment on their other facilities.

But I like the concept of eco-friendly, and will definitely go back again.
