We stayed here before boarding the WESTERDAM to Alaska. Very opulent. I had never been to Seattle, and It was an EXCELLENT place for a first visit. The service and restaurants are excellent. The rooms quiet and very well appointed. Pricy, but this is a 5 star. A nice touch: No 'housekeeping' carts in the halls. The lobby areas are a throwback to design and style that has gone-by. They "don't build things like this" anymore.
