“Great Bed, nice room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

The room was excellent, very roomy. The bed was very comfortable and the pillows were firm and not flat like so many other places. The breakfast was tasty with a good choice of items. The staff was very friendly and I plan on staying there again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

The good--clean, friendly staff, decently remodeled, several different seating areas around lobby, average breakfast, 24 hr tea/coffee AND we really enjoyed the ice water/fresh lemonade (near elevators). We got a great rate thru an auto association discount. AND free!! parking-altho the smaller the car the easier. The free wi-fi worked pretty well.

The bad--somewhat musty smell overall in lobby/building-NOT bad but noticeable as you walk in from outside, also in room but dissipated quickly w/fan or opening window. Hotel was 100% full and they had a hard time keeping breakfast items stocked and dirty dishes were stacked up on the counters.

The great rate we recv'd along w/the free parking-FREE parking in Seattle?! is why we chose this hotel.
Knew the location wasn't great for us-- Pike Place Market and the waterfront were our destinations everyday but sure didn't want to pay those hotel prices! so definitely got a LOT of walking in--no problem as it was just the two of us (who need exercise!) and no kids and the weather was amazingly nice but would not have wanted to go back and forth in horrid weather or with kids. Very convenient to Seattle Center.

Room Tip: Request an upper floor room--6th or 7th floor, even if you face the office building the street noise...

Hotel in area around Space Needle is an older property but nicely renovated. Very quiet so able to get restful sleep. Walking distance to all parts of Seattle downtown and Space Needle, although restaurants not that plentiful in the area (despite numerous hotels in proximity). There is a Whole Foods down the street where you can buy hot meals. Parking is free, a definite plus in Seattle downtown area (can't think of any other hotel that has free parking), although parking spaces are tight and more suited for sedans rather than vans/SUV's. Front desk staff was very helpful, especially Joe on the night shift. Breakfast items run out if you go down to the breakfast area after 9 am - just need to go early. All in all, a good stay, and would definitely stay again when in Seattle.

We stayed here on a recent weekend night and found this place to be just right. The location is great, a few blocks from the Space Needle, less than a mile from Lake Union and a mile from Pike's Market. There is a Whole Foods a block away.
From the outside it does not look like much but inside is very well appointed and modern. I booked a standard room but ended up with a two room suite which included a large living room with a good view of the city and Space Needle. We had our dog and she was welcomed. There is a small city park a block away which made dog walking easy. Parking is tight. The parking garage has limited space and we ended up parking on the street for the night which was fine.
Breakfast was good. I will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the front if you want view of Space Needle

This hotel is a regular stop for me and I usually spend a week here. All remodeled, great staff and constantly working to make everything better. Yes parking is tight, hotel was built in the 60’s, think world’s fair, but it’s free. If you cannot find a space you can park across the street under a restaurant until 9 AM. I don’t know where people are staying or what they are spending to give this hotel a 1 or 2 star rating. I spend about 150 nights a year in hotels and this one is terrific.
