Great hotel, excellent location. The staff was super helpful; always eager to offer directions/transportation options/restaurant ideas. The rooms were spacious and clean. We enjoyed our weekend in Seattle and stay at the Marriot Lake Union/downtown.

Clean room, location is pretty decent, restaurant is nothing special. Do yourself a favor and bring a hooded rainproof jacket so you can walk to a good restaurant even if it's pouring - there's dozens within a mile of the hotel. Lake Union and downtown Seattle are beautiful at sunrise (if you can see the sun) and there's a Starbucks... More

I was happy with everything about my stay. Staff was friendly, room was clean, location is great (especially if your flying out of Lake Union). The internet was fast and easy to get on to in my room.

My first time in Seattle and was recommended by a colleague for a no fuss approach to a hotel stay. Upon check in, the lady was lovely and sorted my room for me slightly before official check in time. Reception area is fine, with a little shop for rations and those forgotten toiletries.

This hotel had the most wonderful staff that you could ask for. Always friendly and helpful in making recommendations on things to do and where to eat. My room was clean and well made, I have no complaints. The view was gorgeous, and the location was great-close proximity to business buildings as well as restaurants and things to do.

Once of the nicest Courtyards that I have stayed in the past couple of years. The rooms are your typical Courtyard accommodations, however, this hotel has a fairly new restaurant and bar with comfortable seating. Food was actually decent, but keep in mind there are dozens of eating establishments within walking distance. Kenmore Air is across the street on Lake... More

I transferred to this hotel after the most horrendous experience at the Residence Inn in South Lake Union right by the Courtyard. Stay away from the Residence Inn and choose Courtyard instead!

My wife and I are active travelers who view a hotel as only a place to sleep and have breakfast so we can spend the time touring. We got the room with Marriott points, but would have otherwise spent the $269 for this prime location. It is away from the craziness of the Pike's place wharf but 10min from downtown... More
