“Good visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Spent one quick night, two rooms, one 2Q and one 1K. Front desk accommodated our request for quite rooms. Room was clean and good Hampton Inn quality. I really like HI's policy of washing comforter covers for each guest.

Hotel charges $15 to park but it is in a secure and covered garage which was nice with the rain. Breakfast was typical HI quality, which I must say I'm not a huge fan if you want something warm but is just fine for the continental stuff like cereal, yogurt, juices, fruit, etc. But the room price is right. It seems like the waffle makers are often on the blink and the batter is a little sweet (confirmed by this location also, but not a big deal).

There is a lot of construction East of this hotel which made traveling from I-5 very difficult when we arrived about 6:00 p.m. on a Friday night. We had no problem getting to downtown on Saturday morning. Decent food options within a block or two (including a grocery store) and the neighborhood seemed o.k for such a walk although we just went across the street to a nice NY Pizza place which also has a good bar.

Room Tip: We got a room on the inside courtyard which reduced the room noise and with my Hilton Honors got a 6...

I have stayed at this hotel several times for business. The hotel has a lot going for it, starting with a wonderful staff. Everyone is friendly and professional, and they make you feel at home. Other positives are the location near the Space Needle, the size of the rooms, and the "easy upgrade" to a suite.

Where this hotel loses a star for me is the noise in the rooms. I like a humming hvac system, but in the summer the air conditioning is downright noisy. In addition, there is a lot of noise from other rooms or "in the walls" from plumbing and such. And (this could be easily remedied), there isn't a single towelbar in the bathroom (I've stayed in 5 different rooms and found this to be the case). Vanity size varies from tiny to normal...a tiny vanity with no place to hang a towel is very inconvenient.

Back to the positives....there is a nice selection of food for breakfast: cereal, fruit, muffins and bagels, yogurt, a waffle maker, and a rotating selection of meats, potatoes and eggs. Juice, milk, coffee, tea are all provided. There's plenty of room in the lobby to eat breakfast, or you can bring it back to your room.

There's a small exercise room, and no pool. As mentioned I've stayed here 5 times, so it has definitely worked for me.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a larger vanity in the bathroom if that matters to you.

The staff bent over backwards for our family memorial. Booked 12 rooms and used their conference room too. The family felt very good about the hotel and staff. It is nice to get eye contact and a hello from all the staff.

This is the PERFECT hotel for celebrating New Years Eve at the Seattle Center. The staff is attentive and friendly, the rooms are great, and it is SO CLOSE to restaurants, QFC, and of course, the Space Needle! The only thing I wish they would improve on is their breakfast choices... but, it is a nice, hot, FREE breakfast. Three years in a row, now, and counting! See you next year, Hampton!

This Hampton Inn's hospitality far surpasses many hotels we have stayed at this year. The hotel had great rooms, and our suite was amazing for the price. The location is close to the Space Needle, which has the tram that will take you to City Center, which puts you in walking distance to Pikes or the waterfront. The fitness facility is really lacking, but they do partner with a neighboring hotel and will give you access to theirs. Breakfast is good, and once again staff very helpful.

Room Tip: If you have a family, consider the suites. They have full kitchens, separate bedrooms, and even two...

I stayed here on a business trip to Seattle recently. The rooms are very nicely maintained, even for Hampton standards. I would stay here again for sure. Here are my pros and cons for the Hampton Downtown Seattle:

Pros
- the staff was extremely welcoming and friendly
- the rooms were super clean and they even added a personal touch by adding who had cleaned the room that day
- the hotel felt new and fresh, from the fixtures in the rooms to the decorations in the lobby
- very short walk to the Space Needle
- I asked to move rooms due to a strange noise and the helped my immediately

Cons
- the layout of the hotel is very strange and one could easily get lost going from one side to another
- the gym was very minimal with only 3 total machines and no weights (but lots of "waits" for the machines!...see what I did there?!)
- was hoping for complimentary upgrade due to status, but they didn't even mention anything

All in all a very pleasant experience at this Hampton.

We stayed in a two-room suite. The service is outstanding, but The hotel layout is really odd (feels like it is converted from Motel 6), and you will hear street traffic all night. I could not figure out how to turn on the heater in either room (don't think the thermostat works).

Parking space is very tight, so you better not driving a big SUV.

Room Tip: Stay away from the main street if possible
