We stayed here for two nights recently. It was well located for events we had both in Seattle and Tacoma. We got an upgraded room which was a nice touch. The breakfast buffet was average to below average for a Residence Inn. Recommend this hotel.

This was overall a nice hotel very convenient to the Southcenter mall and highway 405. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The staff was very pleasant with nice a buffet breakfast. The hotel is adjacent to a small strip mall with a 7 Elevan which was convenient for water and snacks.

Very friendly staff members, which is rare for hotels in an airport setting. Note that the hotel is not super close to the airport but they have a continuously operating shuttle, and when I landed the shuttle was delayed so they offered to pay for my taxi over to the hotel. Getting back over to the airport in the morning...

This was a complimentary stay so hard to say anything bad. Great breakfast and terrific cookies. Physical plant is starting to show age and so too was the bathroom. All in all comfortable and clean with free shuttle to and from the airport

The rooms are nice and clean, it is spacious for four people with a total of three televisions! We only stayed one night but they even had a social hour at 6 pm with lovely goodies and wine and beer. We went to the ball game at Safeco Field and it was easy to get to. Comfortable beds and kitchen...

I realize there are mixed experiences and mixed reviews of this hotel. So I suppose its a matter of consistency. There is truly no reason that this hotel should ever get bad ratings and maybe the mixed reviews should be a signal for management to reevaluate its customer service approach and front desk support. This was our 2nd stay at...

My family got in late Thursday night (11PM) and we had a cranky 15 month old and realized that we had made the reservation for Friday night instead of Thursday. Even though the Thursday rate was almost double what the Friday night rate was, they honored our Friday night rate -- even though we had made the mistake. Thank you...

Well If you've read my past review of this property you'll wonder why I'm giving this such a below average review. We've always enjoyed staying at this Residence Inn and so was the reason for our return to this property last weekend. However, this time around we had a very disappointing experience. We checked in late on a Friday around...

Arrived at this Residence Inn at check in time only to have our group (multiple families) be told that our room was not only not ready at check in time but they couldn't tell us when it might be. Totally unhelpful. We returned over lan hour later to the same story. "Still cleaning and inspecting. Sorry. Not sure when." Every...

My wife and I stayed at this Residence Inn several years ago passing through Seattle. I must have forgotten how much I disliked the hotel, so staying there again was my fault. When the taxi pulled up at the front desk, it all came back to me. The actual experience this second time around just confirmed what I previously knew....so...

Dear Mike, First of all, I'd like to thank you for giving us a second chance and also taking time to write a review. I am sorry to hear about the noise you experienced while visiting the hotel. Unfortunately, we are considered and "airport" property, which serves as a major convenience for our guests but admittedly brings some negatives if...
