“A real gem; old world charm and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2011

The Marqueen Hotel in the North Queen area of Seattle is a true gem. It is an old building originally built by the Ford Motor Co when they had a Model-T plant in Seattle. It has been tastefully refurbished but retains the character of its past. The staff really understand the meaning of the word 'service' and made us feel as if we were old friends returning for a visit even though it was our first time there.

The room was large with a very comfortable king size bed and two comfortable chairs. It has a separate kitchen, fully equipped, which was very helpful as we wanted to watch the Canucks in the Stanley Cup playoffs on two of the nights we were there. Round the corner is the Metropolitan Market, an up-market supermarket that provided a great selection of hot and cold food for the two suppers we ate in. There are several restaurants within walking distance and they looked fine; we just didn't have the chance to try them.

The hotel is right by Seattle Centre with the Space Needle and the monorail to give easy access to downtown Seattle, Pike Place Market, Pioneer Square and the waterfront. A cab ride is about $8 with tip and there are several buses right to the city centre. Best of all, it is an easy walk into Seattle along 1st Ave. We discovered this coming back one afternoon and found several neat pubs and bars having Happy Hour: a 30 minute walk took us 3 hours!

If you want a change from the sterile chain hotels, do try the Marqueen; it's a step back in time to an era when style and class mattered!

Room Tip: Got a good rate through Expedia

We chose this hotel for our Seattle stay because of trip advisor and it's reviews. YOU WERE ALL SO RIGHT!!!!!! We loved it. The decor was so charming with a little dinette and small sitting area as part of the room. I was so enchanted that I bought a $5 bouquet of tulips to put on a table in the sitting area. Staff was super helpful with attraction directions and public transportation. We were on the third floor and did not mind the lack of an elevator. We overindulged in the fantastic Seattle Cuisine and stair climbing was a good way to exercise off some of the calories. Overall great place to stay on a visit to Seattle!!

Room Tip: Request first floor or climb stairs.

Great hotel with wonderful service. We arrived and were given a huge room - we basically had a historic apartment for our stay, even though we booked our room as a flight package deal on Expedia. The hotel is an old apartment block from the early 20th century. They have decorated the rooms and the front hall to the era of the building. It is very charming and warm. The location was convenient, you could walk (if you don't mind walking) almost anywhere. There were also bus stops right at the hotel which brought you anywhere you wanted to go in the city. Breakfast was included but basic, but certainly got you going in the morning. Lively and fun restaurants and coffee shops right on the same block. Staff was friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend the hotel.

Came up from Oregon to attend an event at Key Arena and everything here was just top notch. Friendly staff, comfortable cozy rooms and an amazing location. I came up with two of my best friends and we all stayed in the Marqueen Double Queen room. The two queen's were so comfortable and I didn't hear any complaints about the twin pullout. Loved my time here and was sad to go! Definitely goto Peso's across the street for some great food!

My wife and I come down to Seattle, from Edmonton Alberta, two or three times a year. On our last trip we walked in to check out the Marqueen's ammenities for possible future stays. Are we ever glad we did!
The room was spacious, well decorated, clean, quiet, and had the best bed We've ever slept in.
Every little detail was looked after, our room was extra clean every day, the bathrobes were luxurious, the bellman incredible and the front desk staff bent over backward to help us, from directions, recomendations and advise, to making sure everthing in our room was perfect, or made that way, in an instant, not later. The best in every way!!!!!

Room Tip: Large quiet rooms, book on 3rd floor.

Came over from the UK (Nottingham) & stayed here for 3 nights, March 24th to March 26th (departed on the 27th). The hotel is full of character & charm, & the staff are really friendly & welcoming - nothing was too much trouble, & every question & request for help was met with a cheery smile - they genuinely seemed to want to make your stay special.
I stayed in room 304 & the room was spotlessly clean & spacious. The only slight & I mean slight 'problem' was the pointless breakfast (pointless to me anyway) - the choices are so small & limited (as is the breakfast room) they may as well not bothered - which after the 1st morning I didn't & went to Peso's directly across the street.
Seattle us an amazing place & the Marqueen Hotel is close to all the major attractions, including the Seattle Center & the famous Space Needle - which are just 2 minutes walk away.
Top tip!!! Take a short walk up the hill on Queen Anne (the hotel is on this - just turn right outside the hotel & it's up the hill) to a tiny park - Kerry Park - for the BEST photo opportunity of the Seattle skyline.
Will certainly be going back to Seattle, & will 100% be staying at the Marqueen Hotel.

Thank you for your kind words! We're glad you loved the hotel. We are sorry to hear the breakfast was disappointing, however, we have recently added new items so we hope it to be a bit more substantial. We do look forward to seeing you again during your next trip to Seattle!

My husband and I stayed at the MarQueen to participate in the annual St. Pat's Dash to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. The staff were friendly, kind and most helpful. Any need was met promptly and with a smile. The room was spacious, comfortable and quiet. The room had noise abatement windows and they sure did the trick. Despite being in a noisy and busy area of Seattle, we slept like babies! The price is very reasonable for downtown Seattle and the location is within walking distance of many, many tourist attractions such as the Space Needle and other venues that Seattle is known for!! If you come to the Pacific NW, the MarQueen should definitely be on your itinerary
