We stayed at the Courtyard Seattle Downtown for two nights from the 31st December to the 2nd January. It is located very close to the Amtrak station and easy to find. However, it’s far from the city centre and the main tourist attractions.
The front desk staff was very friendly during the check-in and gave us helpful hints about Seattle. The room had a nice view of the Puget Sound and Bainbridge Island (despite the elevated motorway just in front) and was decently decorated. We were concerned about the noise since it was New Year’s Eve but did not notice any disturbances.
The breakfast was somehow strange: we had a fixed amount of money we could spend in two ways - bread or pastry or cereals + yoghurt + drink (1) or eggs or oat meal + drink (2). If we spent more than the fixed amount, we would have to pay the remainder. We didn't enjoy the system and the food was also not very tasteful.
When we checked out and asked for a taxi to take us to the airport, while waiting for the taxi outside the valet guy tried to convince us to go with in his "uncle’s" car (who would charge us the same as the taxi – $40). We obviously refused and were shocked because we did not expect this to happen in a Marriott.
Above all, we had a great rate since we booked well in advance and thus the hotel showed a good ratio quality/price.
