Wonderful location in the heart of downtown and easy access to The Link, Monorail, Westlake shopping, Pikes, the Pier. The hotel is newly remodeled and it shows. We paid a little extra for a Bay view King bed and the view did not let us down. Every late afternoon, after walking, Linking and enjoying the city, we would head back to our room (1503) and watch the ferries, and water traffic. Before heading back out to dinner. The room is wonderful, the linens soft, an awesome shower head and pressure and inviting. Loved the Keurig and overall a great experience.
A few hiccups was our room was very warm, but a call to the front desk and a cool fan was delivered promptly cooling the room down. I'm sure the fact that it was record highs in Seattle didn't help. So good job Motif remedying the problem quickly. Also upon checkin we had a significant delay (5pm) getting into our room. They did offer us another room without the view for that night (stayed 4nights), but we declined, not wanting to waste one night of views. We did get nervous when it creeped up to 5 and we had a 6:30 Jazz Club reservation, but it all worked out. We were credited for our car for the night since it was such a late check in. So again, high marks for customer service. They have an efficient, helpful bag check station / concierge desk. They even loaned us an umbrella for the day! The fifth floor "Frolick" restaurant, bar, outdoor space was awesome. They light it up, comfy seating, great cocktails and there is shuffle board and ping pong! Fun. Will definitely return here to stay.
