Technically I want to give it a 3.5 rating. We'd scored a really great deal on a discount-booking site, so when I called ahead to choose a king bed, I didn't expect they'd feel the need to extend much kindness to us, but they were fantastic. They made sure we had a non-smoking room, too. (There are still smoking rooms in Seattle??) Front-desk staff were super-friendly, and free wi-fi always earns my gratitude. The free morning breakfast had tons of options; the only downside was that on a weekend morning, jockeying for tables and toast was actually getting a little contentious. But that is more a commentary on the clientele than on the hotel.
Our bathroom door was made of a cheap material and looked pretty worn out, but the room was clean and the bed was really comfortable. It's a three-minute walk to the Space Needle and EMP, so if you don't mind walking fifteen minutes (ten flat blocks) to the shopping district and the Market, it's worth the savings. West-facing rooms have really great views, too.
