We'll start with the Pretty. What a beautiful suite. The front room had a view of Elliot Bay. The bedroom had a view of the downtown buildings. What a well appointed room. So lovely and had modern decor. The bathroom was a tad small, with a toilet that could have used more power. And, the walls were a bit thin. One night we heard the neighbor's conversation. Another morning (6 am) we heard the neighbor's TV. The mini bar with a Keurig was wonderful. One complaint - nice to have Fiji water, but there should be a note stating that it's not complimentary. We didn't know that. When you check out they ask how many bottles of water you had. I was honest and said 4. We were charged $3 per bottle. (So, that's the Bad). Another Bad - they wouldn't honor my AAA discount, because I failed to mention it when we booked the room. Cheesy and not good business!
The Good - friendly staff, close to lots of action/restaurants/shopping. The hotel restaurant (Frolik) is wonderful, at least for breakfast - great eggs, and top notch latte. Would we stay here again? I think even though overall it was very nice - I'd try another place - due to the noise level, and me being a bit peeved that they wouldn't go ahead and give me the triple AAA discount. I had the card on me, and it seems all they'd have to do is re-enter some info into their computer to adjust the bill. We stayed here 3 nights, so it does add up.
