We stayed here for 4 nights and the stay was not pleasant. The tub was not draining and the first room we had booked smelled like there was a dead body in there. If you do stay there is parking on the street but it is close to pikes place and it is a downhill trip but a uphill steep... More

This hotel was perfect due to its adjacency to Virginia Mason hospital and the fact that it has a kitchenette. Ideal for a long stay during medical treatment or when visiting someone in hospital. The neighborhood is very central and has the basics within walking distance.

The Baroness is a 1930's apartment hotel owned by Virginia Mason Medical Center for the convenience of their patients and their families. It is open to the public, as well. It is a classic beauty representative of grand hotels from another time. Beds are comfortable, nearly all rooms have stoves, microwaves, small refrigerators, hair dryers, and alarm clocks. Staff are... More

I had a corner room with 2 beds, separate living room, kitchen, and 2 large closets. The hotel is a historic gem on First Hill (a steep climb above the University Avenue Light Rail Link Station). Enjoy a great breakfast at the Virginia Mason Hosptal Cafe across the street. Walk up to Broadway or 12th Street for more shops and... More

This hotel was good, but it was very old. The room, beds and sheets were clean, and there was enough space for three of us. The kitchenette provided a fridge, sink, microwave and stove, although all the appliances were very dated and had that old look to them -- although they were clean and in good use. The lobby was...

With a family member going in for surgery- the Baroness offers medical rates so my husbands family and we all stayed here. My first impression was PU- I could barely get past the smell of the building.

The festive and well appointed lobby made my stay look promising. I have stayed at the Inn at Virginia Mason so I didn't expect nor did I desire the sleek steel and mirrors modern hotel.

There are two big reason I stayed at this hotel. First that it was walking distance to the Washington State Convention Center.

There is absolutely no resemblance between the online pics of this hotel and the way it looks. Horrible dingy place that smells and hasn't been updated since the 1970's - not cute, not quaint, not cosy JUST DONT DO IT
