For such a basic room I think it was overpriced and suggest a renovation is in order. No mirrors and hooks are very basic things which cost little. Nice touch giving out free wine and was good quality, staff were all very efficient and friendly and easy to access taxis.

This hotel is situated in a prime downtown location for those who don't want to rent a car. We took link from airport to Westlake Center for $3 per person. This stopped about two blocks from hotel. Walk to hotel was easy with luggage. From hotel you can easily walk to sights--Pike's Market is a couple blocks from hotel, Space... More

The price point and the extra, but mandatory fitness fee was annoying. There was nothing special about the hotel to justify the price. Elevators also took a long time with many people waiting for service.

The location of this hotel is great. The rooms are a good size. The staff is friendly. The parking was easy and not crazy expensive. They offer wine tasting in the lobby everyday for a couple of hours in the late afternoon. Let's talk about the elevators. We checked in on a Friday. There appeared to be a convention plus... More

Hello ebe383 - I am glad to hear that you enjoyed most of your stay with us and that our team was so friendly. I am sorry for the delay in our elevators, we did open our service elevator that evening to assist with the flow of guests with the large event that evening, so hopefully it wasn't too much... More

The location is excellent and we love Seattle downtown. The room was clean and good but a little noisy. The biggest problem was luggage load/unload. If we can use the downstair parking, it would be excellent. We have enjoyed the stay anyway.

Great service. Walked to everything, very much experiencing city authentically. Frolick was great, both atmosphere and food. Food was very much local fare not just typical hotel food. Room was comfortable and attractive with a nice view.

I was really happy with everything, cleanliness, friendliness of the staff. I had two very quiet nights although there was a party going on a floor below. The rooms must be very well insulated! The only small down-side were the long elevator waiting times.

View is nice. Hotel is spotless! Upon check in you are told of a 'courtesy' charge that covers all drinks And wifi These are often free at other hotels- coffee and bottled water. Room rate should just reflect thus since it is not optional.
