“Comfortable Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2012

Had a comfortable stay at this hotel. It is great for the business traveler. The front desk check in was swift and the check out even swifter. I was pleased with the overall service experience.
The room was great - I was lucky to have a suite. Ample space and very comfortable. The amenities in the room were good as well.

During a week long weather-related power outage in the entire Seattle area, it was difficult to find a hotel that had rooms. So I started to drive south toward Portland and eventually found a vacancy in Federal Way (suburb of Seattle). Because they had a generator, lights were on in the lobby. They did have one room left, a suite. While the rooms had no power, they advised there was plenty of hot water. Happy at last to find a place to lay my head, I booked the room and was supplied with 2 flashlights. While it was nice to finally find a warm bed, the hotel did not give me any kind of discount, weather-related or otherwise - AAA, lack of services, old and tired. I suppose that would have been too much to ask since this is a for-profit institution, not a social service agency.

I used to stay here for work years ago and its gone downhill over time. Room had a mildew smell. A little disrepair in the bathroom. Tv doesn't have digital connection so you couldn't get local channels.

This was a great business hotel, quiet yet nice and having quite a few amenities that business travelers like.

Check in was a breeze, internet connectivity never failed, the folks at the front desk were very helpful with local restaurant choices and anything we needed.

It rained the entire time but we expected that, the RAM restaurant next door had very good micro brews and salads. We also ate at the Tokyo Japanese steakhouse and Jasmine Mongolian grill. Both were also very good with the Jasmine being the best, we had co-workers that had never been to a Mongolian grill before and they loved it.

Would stay here again in a heart beat. No issues getting around town, no issues getting back to the airport as well.

Room Tip: High floors as always

I would give this Courtyard 3.5 stars if I could. It's a totally average Courtyard in just about every way.

Good points:
*Friendly staff
*Good location with lots of restaurants in walking distance
*Remodeled lobby with business center & nice lounge
*Guest laundry available
*Clean, comfortable rooms
*Many rooms have great views of Mt Ranier

Bad points:
*The rooms with Mt Ranier views face a noisy highway, so don't request one if you are noise sensitive
*Despite the snazzy lobby, the actual rooms are not remodeled - my carpet definitely was musty
*Their wifi kept crashing my IPad

It's a fine place to stay in the area - way better than the Best Western across the street. Know that some of the rooms have Jacuzzi tubs which is kind of odd for a Courtyard. I mean, who says to their significant other "hey, let's have a sexy weekend at the Courtyard on Federal way...they have Jacuzzi tubs"?

Room Tip: Mt Ranier facing rooms also face a busy highway, so avoid them if you are sensitive to noise.

Just off the highway 5 and very near so many great restaurants and shopping. Don't hesitate to go to RAMS next door for any meal. Great beer prices at 3.25 a pint and an incredible menu. If its busy..go directly to the bar.
The hotel was clean and good friendly staff. There is a health food market about 500 feet away.

At the end of our great adventures across WA, we ended up at this hotel in the Seattle area to fly my girlfriend home. At first we were going to stay just one night than move to a hotel closer to the airport for an early morning flight, but we loved this hotel and its location so much that we stayed 2 nights. The location is perfect, easy access off the hwy. It is in a shopping area that made it easy to go to a movie, shop, and dine...Clean, comfortable and great service is what we got for a pretty good rate, as they matched the lowest internet rate and welcomed us right on in...
