Front desk staff was awesome, very helpful and friendly. Zhanna was great and helped set up a few of our excursions. However, we had two rooms, the non-suite room was outdated and the a/c had trouble keeping up with the heat & humidity. Our sink had trouble draining and had a bad odor coming from it. The suite was more... More

As many of the reviews note, the front desk staff is excellent - Zhanna and Duane were both very friendly and helpful, despite being very busy with requests and complaints. However, we don't really have anything else good to say about this HIE. The room we had was musty and humid, even with the (very loud) A/C running full blast.... More

Stayed 8 nights in August of 2016. The hotel was nice. The staff was great. We had a view of another buildings roof. The room was less than 10 ft from both elevators and less than 15ft from the ice machine. It was loud. The air conditioner was old and noisy but efficient. Sink is not in the bathroom. Pool... More

This was my first stay here and the place just did not meet my expectations. The only good point was the friendly staff, there were a lot of basic amenities that were missing. 1. The rooms and the walkways had a musty smell. 2. There is no glassware or cutlery in the room, only some poor quality styrofoam and plastic... More

I stayed here for 2 weeks on business. The front desk staff was always amazing. I specifically want to call out Taysha, Quba and Zhanna. They greeted me by name and got to know my schedule. We would talk and catch up. Their suggestions were always on par and welcomed. The rest of the desk staff was just as great.... More

We stayed one night. It was very expensive for a HIE but it may be because we were in town the last weekend of Seafair and rates were high everywhere. Breakfast was standard continental. The breakfast room is locked otherwise, but your key accesses it during off hours which was nice for us as we brought back Piroshky Piroshky and... More

Getting into the entrance area was difficult. There is no signage telling you how to get in. When you think you see how to get into the pull through area, just as you turn in, there is a sign that says "do not enter." You have to drive through a little alley-like road off the side street between buildings and... More

We stayed in one of the bigger rooms it was nice and clean and there was a kitchenette as well. It was centrally located we were able to walk to all the places we wanted to go, like the Space Needle the Mono Rail and the EMP. The employees were super nice and very helpful. I would stay here again.

The front desk folks were great. Kudos to Zhanna Grechko for all her help. Not too many places to dine close by, however right next door is the Holiday Inn Emerald Grill (see my review). The rooms were bright, clean and comfy. A very nice breakfast was served in the morning. Would surely stay here again.
