This is a hotel in need of renovation and to be fair some work is on going. If the noise doesn't bother you then its a decent central location. But if you want a modern, clean and well sorted accommodation then look elsewhere. The rooms are basic, the air con/heating is noisy and the pillows are awful. Don't take a...

Nice decor, nice employees, but overall a disturbing experience! At 1am, we were in bed when there was a knock on our door. Through the peep hole we saw a man in a brown outfit who said he had a message for us, and needed me to open the door. Would you have opened the door??? I asked if he...

Incredible hotel and service! My friends and I stayed the weekend at the Motif for a birthday getaway. The stay was simply remarkable in every way. At check-in, Peyton was happy, personable and informative. She was the first staff member we interacted with and she set the tone for the whole stay. She referred us to the Motif's "Destination Taste,"...

Great room, great room service. Very helpful when I needed directions or an umbrella. When I left my room for the day, my room was cleaned perfectly and stuff that I needed wasn't moved to where I couldn't find it. Overall, great experience.

This is a pleasant lounge; lots of room and not too loud. The service was good but this is a place where you wait and wait to pay your bill. We enjoyed their signature burger and drinks, I had the beet salad and it was delicious! If you can visit during warmer months, the outdoor patio is worth a visit....

This hotel is perfectly located to explore the city. Just a short stroll to shopping, restaurants, the markets, the pier and the monorail. You couldn't pick a more convenient hotel. I highly recommend it.

This is a hotel that has had a complete makeover. It is fairly nice and fine for an few nights stay in Seattle. The staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms clean and comfortable.

Everything except the low shower and the cold hotel temperature was excellent. The hotel is undergoing renovations and hopefully, the new showers will be better and the hotel temperature will be improved.

The reason why I booked this hotel was because of the roof top lounge, unfortunately during my stay it wasn't open. Also a couple of the light outlets did not work, we had to unplug lamps in order to use the outlet. Other than that it's a great hotel, walking distance from pike place. A big plus was that it...

It is a beautiful hotel. This is my second stay. This year the lobby and the elevator was freezing cold. The staff has individual heaters at each desk, this seems a bit much for me, just turn up the heat. Maybe move that fire table you have outside into the lobby.
