My mom and I had a pleasant stay at this Hampton Inn & Suites over a weekend in November. It is a relatively close walk to the monorail and there are several bus routes towards the downtown/Pike Place Market area. There is a supermarket one block away in the new residential development, and many interesting dining choices nearby.
The hotel is on a hill, and houses separate “inn” and “suite” areas. In fact, the entire property has a maze-like feel with relatively dim hallways. However, the rooms are up to the usual high Hampton standards. The breakfast area is relatively large and recently renovated.
Everyone was very friendly and professional. The cookies and fruit-infused water available in the lobby were delicious and refreshing.
One thing we noticed is that there were several possibly itinerant people who stop by and use the lobby. The restrooms in the lobby require room key access. There was a man who made a recommendation for Citizen, a nearby coffee/beer/café place; it was a little unusual that he mentioned eating there several times a week. We also saw a disheveled woman in the lobby and later in the supermarket. However, it must be stressed that we did not feel unsafe at any time.
Overall, this is a property that upholds all the great qualities for which Hampton Inns are known.
