The hotel location was excellent--space needle view from my room. The hotel is close enough I could walk to downtown and light link rail (<1 mile). A dab father to the waterfront, but I did walk everywhere. The staff were friendly and helpful always. The room itself was well furnished--decent bed and TV, nice jetted tub/shower (although the jets didn't... More

Liked this hotel. Two person jacuzzi room actually fit us both after a long day of walking around. Parking an additional fee but in a secure garage. Elevators slow so be ready for it. Nice indoor pool. Beds super comfy. Great view of the space needle and the Wi-Fi worked great. Paid almost $400 a night for just the room... More

We picked this hotel because of it's price and location. We are in Seattle for a few days pre-cruise. Seattle is expensive so even thought this hotel is more reasonably priced than many others, it isn't inexpensive to be clear. There is free wifi and the basic hotel breakfast included which we like. The staff was very helpful when our... More

We stayed two nights. The hotel was so quiet our child slept in, which was great as we are on east coast time. Convenient to space needle, international fountain, Chihuly museum, Statute park....monorail also goes from space needle to pile place and back. So easy to get to two great areas. Thought this place was perfect for the price. Much... More

I stayed here for 2 nights after an Alaskan Cruise. This is located a couple of blocks from the Space Needle and the EMP Museum, it is located right next to a highway so if you don't walk out on the right street, like I did once, you have to walk several blocks up before you can find a spot...

This hotel is within walking distance to the Space Needle and other downtown attractions. We stayed the night before a cruise and were able to walk to the Space Needle area as well as Pikes Market and other attractions easily. The hotel staff accommodated our request for a late check out time since we had a late boarding time. For... More

We stayed one night prior to taking a cruise. The hotel is centrally located in a large shopping area, plus only a couple miles from the pier. The room was comfortable and the breakfast area is large, though very busy. Our room had a perfectly centered view of the Seattle Space Needle. If you are going to take a cruise,... More

What you'd expect from the Holiday In Express. Not a big hotel, but clean and comfortable. The room charges were higher than normal because of several large city wide events that were going on. This was a little disheartening as the rooms are a little dated. Our room (2 queen beds) was very small, and the sink/vanity were outside the... More

I have to say that I have not met friendlier or nicer front desk people than at this hotel!! Taysha went above and beyond her job description duties when working with us. We had just gotten off a 7 night Alaskan cruise and, as we were checking in, our 6 year old grandson had a slight meltdown. She took him... More

We were here for two night. We had two adjoining rooms. There is a lot of construction at the entrance so getting in and parking was a little goofy (which is a $19/day charge) When we got into our room we opened the fridge to put some stuff away and water poured out and there was someone's leftover stuff that...

Dear SocialSavvy, Thank you for taking the time to write your review about our hotel. I am glad you regarded the cleanliness of our rooms. On the other hand, we regret that level of service you received from our housekeeping staff less than satisfactory, the ongoing construction and that you found the rate of parking to be high. We would... More
