“Perfect location for Seattle stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

We were looking for a hotel that could accommodate our large family's pre-cruise stay (five rooms) and happened upon the Hampton Inn on 5th Avenue. To be honest, I wasn't expecting much considering the price; however, I was certainly surprised by what we found. Not only were the reservation staff personable and accommodating, they were extremely helpful with our transportation both from the airport (different flights/times) and to and from the pier. They work with a local transportation company and everything went like clockwork ... we were met at the airport on time, getting to the ship was a breeze and they met us at the pier to get some of us to the airport and the rest back to the hotel. (And their rates were very reasonable!)

The hotel itself is typical of a Hampton Inn but I think it's the staff that really makes this particular hotel a gem. To a person, they were warm and friendly -- even when their guests were not. It was quite apparent that this hotel is routinely recommended for cruise passengers as the staff managed the hordes of people very efficiently. The rooms were clean and well appointed and I was extremely impressed that they provided suites for the members of our party with children (four in a room). The only downside to our rooms was the fact that they, like most older hotels, have older, external mount air conditioners which I don't care for due to their noise.

The location of this hotel couldn't have been better. My husband and I stayed here for two nights prior to our cruise so we had time to "explore". It is right down the street from the Seattle Center (Space Needle) where we caught the monorail to downtown ... right after having lunch at a fantastic pizza parlor, Zeek's. In addition, I had made dinner reservations at two restaurants which were highly rated on TripAdvisor and both were within walking distance of the hotel ... which was a real "plus" in my book. Oh, the neighborhood is quite safe which made walking to the restaurants quite pleasant.

Everyone in our party agreed that this hotel was a great place to stay and that we would definitely stay here again the next time we're in Seattle.

Room Tip: If you have three or four people in your party, ask for one of the suites. They're very nice an...

While in Seattle for the Rush concert we choose Hampton Inn & Suites to stay. The location was a perfect location. Close to the Seattle center and Key arena, short walking distance. It was also close to the mono rail to ride down to downtown to get to Pike's Place and the water front. The view from our room on the 6th floor was a nice view of the city. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating. We will definitely stay there again when we return to the Seattle area.

This hotel is in a great neighborhood with a very low crime rate, and the breakfast is actually not bad. Parking is limited, though they do have underground parking available. Complimentary wi-fi is easily accessible.

If you have a car.. parking is very limited! And if you park in the garage be sure and ask for specific directions to your room. You can get lost and spend a lot of time figuring out that if you have room number 5xx,you don't take the elevator from the parking garage to the 5th floor which has rooms 5xx.
Otherwise, no surprises.. typical Hampton.

Seattle is a favourite city to visit. Our primary purpose this time was to see the Minnesota Vikings play the Seahawks. The Hampton Inn was a reasonably priced, conveniently located. comfortable starting point. The location in the Queene Anne area adjacent to Fifth Avenue allows for easy driving connections to downtown, close proximity to the monorail or a stroll through the funky neighbourhood and visits to some interesting shops. The front desk staff were very welcoming, friendly and efficient. Our room with a king size bed was comfortable, super clean and filled with useful amenities. The breafast options were plentiful and the room set aside to eat breakfast was exceptional. The parking fee of $15 is a sign of the times I guess but it did ensure a secure parking location for our vehicle and was certainly not unreasonable. This hotel is a very good option for a Seattle visit .

It's an experience like ours tonight that wins long term loyalty. Kyle Simmons who was on the front desk was terrific in handling the problem we had checking in - when I made our reservation ( non cancel able ) I made a mistake on the month putting in December 8th vs. November 8th. My wife and I showed up tonight - the 8th- and found that we didn't have a room booked.
Kyle was excellent - he realized what had happened before we did and before telling us what had happened found us another room - the last one available as it turns out. He also called the reservation center explained the situation and was able to reverse the non-cancelable December booking without being asked!
Outstanding customer service, and I know that starts with management. We always have had great experience with Hampton, well located, with clean comfortable rooms, welcome cookies, and great breakfasts but this kind of customer care is just excellent. If you haven't tried Hampton's you should!

This hotel is built in a strange configuration so you end up taking long walks on long corridoors on different levels to reach you room.
However having got there it was worth it - I had a suite which had a Kitchen and sitting room with a fireplace.

Bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was a nice size - No safe in the room was the only amenity that I was wanting for,

Complimentary breakfast in the lobby was no frills but fine.

Great location near the Space Needle and the Gates foundation , just a 15 minute walk or so into the City .

Happy to recommend.
