My teenage son and I stayed 2 nights here. Frankly we booked the room (junior suite - queen bed and pull out sofa bed) because it was affordable at $149 vs over $250 for everything else downtown. The "hotel" is located on Pill Hill (or First Hill) about 4 blocks uphill from I5 and is attached to a hospital. It was a little weird seeing patients in the elevators and noting Dr's offices down the hall from our room. Surprisingly quiet room and area.
Our room was large and comfortable. Not very fancy and clearly is an old property. Bathroom was basic as was TV. Internet was good. Bed comfy but son complained about the sofa bed. Staff were very friendly and helpful. There is a great rooftop deck on the 9th floor with a view of downtown and the waterfront.
If you don't mind a steep climb - its a nice walk to downtown. The area seems pretty safe and we saw lots of dog walkers in the evening. Great patio for happy hour kitty corner a the at upscale Sorrento hotel.
Downsides - parking is off site and +$20/day. Slow elevator (only 1). Our biggest complaint was we hit Seattle in a rare heat wave and the hotel has no air conditioning. Don't expect lots of amenities or a fancy room (more like staying with family) but the value for dollar is great and you feel part of the community rather than a tourist.
