Great location to downtown, restaurants and shopping. Easy walk to the waterfront. Frolick was tasty. I was in town for a business trip and the beds were comfortable and didn't hear much downtown street noise. I would recommend.

We had fun at the company Christmas party. The only real turn off was room service was cold. For how much money we paid for room service it should have been better. Frolik staff during the party was very good

The hotel was accommodating and friendly, however the bathroom was very poor quality. The toilet seat had cracks and gauges and the pipes in the wall rattled when used. This was very frustrating at 7AM-10AM when all neighboring units showered, causing the room to sound like a war-zone. If the hotel fixed the plumbing issues I feel it would be... More

We stayed here in June for two nights before cruising to Alaska. We had an executive queen room (paid quite a bit extra). The lifts were right next to our room and ALL night sounded like gale force winds blowing as they zoomed up and down. No sleep at all the first night. Glass door on the bathroom was interesting...

Outside and lobby appearance are quite misleading. They both looked inviting and clean. When arriving into my room I was quite saddened with the room appearance as the bathroom was not clean for hotel standards. There was left over scum around the sink on the wooden panels, which was pretty disgusting. The bathtub was grimey around the drain, which left... More

Stayed at this hotel on a short business trip and was very pleased. Fabulous location, close to shopping and Pikes Market. The hotel was under some construction so the elevators were a problem with waits up to 15 minutes; one elevator usually working at a time. Beds were VERY comfortable and the staff was amazing.

The only issue during this trip were due to the elevators. There were issues with the only 2 working elevators during my stay which equated to long wait times for the elevator and even one instance in which we were forced to the stairs. All other aspects of the stay were excellent and I understand they were working to rectify... More

My one complaint here was room service. I ordered eggs bennedict and they gave it to me in a to-go box with plastic silverware. The box was huge so when I opened it I could barely cut into my food. Not to mention the plastic silverware made it extremely difficult to cut anything at all. I am disappointed that this... More

Have always wanted to spend Thanksgiving downtown and roll out of bed in the morning to enjoy the parade. Motif made this an awesome experience! The location of Motif is hard to beat and really loved the late check-out opportunity of 2 p.m.
