I highly recommend this hotel. Everyone on the staff was exceptionally friendly and welcoming. They had a treat ready for our little dog every time we went by the front desk. The room was clean, comfortable and spacious. The breakfast was amazing! Fresh DIY waffles, fruit, yogurt, eggs, etc. Top notch. I'll book here again.

The train is right in front of the hotel. Take this to go to Pike's Market, unless if you want to walk for 30 minutes. This hotel is across the water, so make sure to request your room to be on that side. The interiors are dated 80's to 90's style. Be prepared to pay for parking.

Stayed 3 weeks in a two bed suite. Location was perfect. Just off I 5 so very easy access. Lake Union in front of the hotel. Walking distance (20 min) from the space needle, EMP museum Chihuly garden. Rooms were good size and clean. Bathrooms were very small. Got a good rate even with $30 per day for parking. Staff...

We arrived on early Monday before check-in time, we were given many local restaurants to enjoy, until closer to our checkin time. Once in the room it was big and nice, the bed was also very comfortable, breakfast had a very good selection. Just a very relaxing stay, at the end of the workday. Very close to lots of very...

We used Airmiles to stay at this property not sure if we got our money's worth?, the staff are very pleasant at this hotel, we didn't try the free breakfast but it looked very good what they did offer, the kitchen in our room was so so, wasn't impressed with the $4.00 bottles of Fiji water, why they couldn't source...

The last time i was here for business, I stayed in a "lesser" Extended Stay hotel. This time I booked what I thought was something nicer, a reputable brand Marriott. From the very start it has not been enjoyable or worth it. First of all, I was put into an accessible room, which I'm sure is helpful for someone needing... More

Great service, excellent breakfast, rooms are very nice. Front desk staff went above and beyond to help our group out. Great location within walking distance to downtown sites and attractions. I will be making this hotel my go-to lodging location when visiting Seattle.

Stayed there from Aug. 18 through 24th. It's a good place to stay away from crowded downtown. You will be about 6 miles from downtown. Bus and troll will get you to many locations. The Seattle tourism dept. is good call to make, prior to going. They were very helpful. Actually call they 3 times in 2 weeks prior to... More

I stayed there almost a month. Worst experience. First of all, the room when we checked in wasn't clean and there was a very awful smell. I had to use s refresher spray, flowers and candles to remove this smell. Also there was a broken lamp inside the room, which wasn't fixed before My checkin. Housekeeping is the worst, they... More

We loved this hotel! They have the most helpful front desk employees ever! Our room was large, with a seperate kitchenette and also had a balcony. The hotel is across the street from the marina with lots of nice resturants. It is also close to the street car. They offer a free breakfast which was excellent! Very impressed. We will... More
