We stayed at the Residence Inn Seattle South for 5 nights during a recent visit to Seattle. It's proximity to many local services, and it's high rating on Trip Advisor were the two key factors for choosing this property! The Trip Advisor community did not disappoint!
First off, the property is very large and sprawling, and consists of 18 two storey buildings plus the lobby. Each building has 4 suites per floor. We were lucky enough to get building #18 (room 1811), which was at the far end of the property, and nearest to the only parking lot that isn't completely full by 10pm! Check in was a breeze, and no issues with our reservation. A quick swipe of my credit cart, and we were off to see our home away from home. We took a ground floor studio suite, which is an open concept room, complete with hideaway bed, fire place, and full kitchen. We never did use the stove or microwave oven, but the fridge kept our drinks cold! The room was extremely clean, and appeared to be in perfect repair. There was new carpet throughout, which is a big plus for us, as worn carpet can make a clean room look poorly. The kitchen was spotless, and the appliances looked brand new. Clearly, they don't get a whole lot of use, or they had been replaced recently. The washroom was immaculate, and a good side as well.
A continental breakfast is included with the room, including hot items like eggs and waffles, as well as cereal, fresh fruit, breads, and juices. We only took advantage of this on our last day as we were checking out. Apparently they also host a "happy hour" in the lobby in the late afternoon, although we were never around during this time, and did not participate. There is also a nice flat screen TV in the room, though we didn't use that, either. One thing we did use was the free WI-FI. Although a little clunky to log in to every time we turned on our devices, it was fast and got the job done. Our room was fairly quiet. The first couple of nights, there must have been a young family in the room above ours, so there was some stomping, but this did not affect us. The air conditioning in the room worked perfectly, which was good, since we happened to arrive on one of the warmest days in Seattle so far this summer!
There is a creek running behind the property, with a paved walkway alongside. Nice for a stroll. The property also has a small swimming pool and badminton court which looked nice. There is a 7-11 convenience store right across from the lobby, in the same parking lot. Across the street, there is a Taco Bell and a Jack in the Box. The mall is a 5 minute drive due west of the property.
We would definitely recommend this property to family and friends, and look forward to returning here on a future trip to the area!
