The good: 1. It is close enough to good shopping and restaurants. 2. They have great shampoo and conditioner. 3. The rooms have a full kitchen - including fridge, microwave, stove and dishwasher! 4. They have laundry services on site! You still need change, but it is on site!

We booked a trip to Seattle for our kids Christmas gift rather than buy them “things”! We wanted a hotel with a pool because they love to swim. We arrive and they are able to get us in early which was great and luckily this happened or our kids would not have been able to swim

Dear L265MQashleys, Thank you so much for such a detailed review. I am glad to hear that our Front Desk Team was able to honor Early Check-In and your family enjoyed our pool and kid's play room. Unfortunately, on the busier days, the water chemistry in the pool and spa need to have rebalnced every several hours. Due to many people jumping into the pool in their laundered shorts and shirts, residual laundry detergent in the fabric is quickly changing water's PH level and chemistry, requiring us to add special "pool shock chemicals" to quickly bring the chemistry back to normal. However, this doesn't take very long, and usually within an hour pool can be open again. We hope that you will have another opportunity to stay with us in the future and enjoy our beautiful hotel and our amenities. Happy New Year! Sincerely, Maxim K.

I arrived at 11:30am and I didnt expect to be able to check-in because I know others had just checked out. I sat in the lobby right in front of the desk so they couldn't miss me and knew I was there. The lady Haven said she couldn't guarantee a time but they knew I was

Dear VIP7844, Thank you so much for taking the time and sharing your experience. We are sorry to hear that hotel was not able to accommodate your request for an early check-in and your suite was not immediately available upon your arrival. Unfortunately, without knowing the date of arrival or other details of the reservation, we can’t speculate to why the type of the suite you have booked was not available sooner. However, we can assure you that our Front Desk Associates are always striving to accommodate all such requests whenever possible. Our hotel offers 7 different types of suites, with some of the types having only a few suites in the inventory, reducing the chances that one of these suites would be available sooner. It is possible that specific suite type you have reserved was not readily available upon your arrival. We apologize that we have not provided you with additional updates on when to expect your suite to be ready. Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience and less than perfect stay. We’ll certainly share your feedback with the team and will use it as our training opportunity. Thank you for staying at the Residence Inn Seattle Lake Union and we hope that you will consider us for your next trip to Seattle!

A company made the reservation for me but Marriott charged the bill to my personal card, which I gave for guarantee on arrival, without asking me again at check out. I was told to submit an authorization for the right card which is not making sense since another person reserved

Dear Sash131313, Plea accept our apologies for the inconvenience with the hotel bill. I am sorry to hear that your manager/company have sent you out on a business trip without providing the necessary information about the hotel billing. Please ask your manager to contact us directly, and we'll be more than happy too provide all necessary information your company needs to ensure this doesn't happen to any other of your coworkers. The card your company used to book a room can only be used to guarantee the reservation, but hotels will need a proper method of payment at the time of guest's arrival. If the company wants to use their Credit Card to pay for reservation, they will have to complete a Credit Card Authorization Form and send it to hotel at least 48-hours prior to gust's arrival. Otherwise, the guest will have to provide their own (personal) credit card upon arrival. Also, the person who is booking your reservation, should be using your Marriott Rewards number to ensure you will receive all the benefits of being a Loyal Rewards Member, including your Rewards Points or Miles. I hope this information will help with your future reservations, and will make your travels stress-free. Sincerely, Maxim K.

My family and I had a good experience at this hotel. Sadly, we were unable to get a room with a lake view, but we did like our room, which faced west and was on the third floor (same floor as pool, jacuzzi, and kids' rec room). The breakfast was quite good, I thought, and had

They don’t work at night. I will say they do start early in the morning. Try to request a room on the the side of the hotel without the construction.

Hello gwwyjjliu, We'll be more than happy to answer your question! Yes, our One-Bedroom and Two-Bedroom Suites do have separate Bedrooms. However, our Studio Suites do not have the wall between the bedroom and the living room. Please let us know if you will have any other questions! Sincerely, Maxim K.

Sorry; just saw this. No I can’t imagine there being a fee. They would just deliver it to your room or leave it at the front desk.

Can you see the New Year's Eve fireworks from the Space Needle at this hotel?
We have a few rooms with direct views of the Space Needle and a few more with partial views. These rooms have been reserved at this point for next week's celebration. Many of our guests simply walk outside during the New Years Eve fireworks and watch from across the street, where the Needle view is unobstructed. Thanks for your question!
