The location of this hotel was good, although more removed from downtown than we anticipated. Once we figured out the trolley and buses, it was fairly easy to travel about. What we liked most about this hotel is that it offered separate bedrooms, each with their own bathroom. It was nicely decorated and fit our needs perfectly. After some initial problems with the room assignment, we finally ended up with what we paid good money for...a suite with a proper view of the lake with a patio. *Beware* of the front desk clerks who try to give you less of a suite than you paid for. Don't be afraid to speak up! The breakfast buffets were adequate and offered a good variety of breakfast items. The hotel itself was very nice, and most of the staff were very nice and pleasant. There was construction going on while we were there, but since we were out during the day, it wasn't an issue.
Since we did not rent a car, we took full advantage of the public transporation. We did utilize the car service that the hotel works directly with for airport/hotel transfers. It was great to be picked up at the airport and taken to the hotel without having to worry about driving in areas unknown. They will also take you wherever you want to go, for a fee, obviously. We did use them to get to the ferry rather than taking the bus. Super simple and worry free.
All in all, we had a good experience at the hotel. If I return to Seattle with friends, I would stay here again. But going with my spouse, I would likely stay somewhere downtown.
