we arrived almost 4pm and had to wait for 15mins as the rooms were not ready (although check in is 3pm) which is not very impressive. We got a shock of our life, when we went for breakfast on the first day everthing in the dining room was disposable paper plates, bowls, plastic lined cups? staff was ill informed about... More

This hotel was absolutely perfect for our visit - clean, free breakfast, and friendly employees. It is within walking distance to many attractions or uber is normally around $5 to get to most of the big attractions. I would definitely stay here again!

The only good thing about this place is the location, near the Needle. The rooms had a bad smell, the door handel to the stair well was broke off, We had a group of young men above our room playing football. We had just flown in from Florida, di d not wabt to hear the noise. When we made the... More

I was charged for a night I didn't stay there-checked out early and they didn't pay attention when I did so at the front desk and charged me for an extra night-travel to Seattle often for work-will never stay again. Here are my pros/cons Pro: Location (walkable to SLU) Cons: Mold in shower Mildew smelling rooms Smoke smelling rooms Wallpaper... More

We had a lovely view of the Space Needle from our bedroom, but the best part was we were able to walk there from the hotel. Everything we wanted to see and everywhere we wanted to go was steps away. The price was really good for the location.

The location is perfect to explore the city. The hotel is not really great. We have waited two days for a light in the bathroom after five times complaints. The receptionists are friendly but not really service oriented. The breakfast is holiday inn standard.

I spend few nights in this hotel and it was a nightmare. Everything in this hotel is OLD!!! Rooms with broken sinks, not working AC. Worst part is terrible smell in the room. Front desk staff are excellent, but they cannot do room renovation for you. This was my worst experience with Holiday Inn in my whole life.

At check-in there was a long line of people but it moved pretty quickly. The room was nicely decorated and clean. Breakfast had a lot of options including muffins, eggs, hashbrowns, make your own waffles, juices, toast, bagels etc. I would recommend this hotel.

Note - If you do a Google map search for Hotels in the area, they will not show that adjacent to the Holiday Inn Express, there is a Holiday Inn Hotel. You specifically must enter Holiday Inn in the search bar to get the other property. There is an insufficient number of Hotels in the entire city for the number... More
