This Seattle Marriott has stunning views of Elliott Bay and the Olympic Mountains from many rooms and the main lobby, but it only has free WiFi in the lobby. It costs an extra $14 per day to have WiFi in your own room. I find this outrageous when you can get free WiFi at Super 8, but not at Marriott. What guests are they seeking?
This is a good hotel to stay at if you arrive in Seattle by public transport and do not have to pay the up to $30 per day parking fee. There is no street parking. Taxis are bandits and difficult to get, but the bell staff was helpful in flagging taxis from the street. The Amtrak station is less than half mile away, and the Victoria Clipper leaves from a nearby pier. A shuttle from Sea-Tac is no doubt available, but I do not know the price.
The hotel is conveniently located below the many shops and restaurants at Pike Place Market and walks along the waterfront are a definite plus with a viewing platform at Pier 66.
The hotel itself has spacious rooms, all the usual amenities, and an indoor/outdoor pool that must be wonderful in summer.
Although there is no complimentary breakfast, the dining room seemed to offer a variety of appealing Northwest cuisine focused on fish and seafood.
This is a convention hotel, so be prepared for swarming crowds at various times.
I found the desk staff to be very helpful, checking me in early and providing me with personal printing services when the business center printer/copier was out of order.
The Waterfront is a nice place to stay if you keep an eye out for the extra charges.
Not all rooms have balconies, so if you like to step outside request a room with one. Even side room...
