“Happily Surprised!”
Reviewed June 24, 2007

This place was great! We thought because of the price, smaller size and age of the hotel we would have a slightly out of date "historic" hotel waiting for us - HOWEVER, when we walked in we where thrilled to find a beautifully updated hotel. The location is perfect for Pikes Market and other downtown shopping and dinning within walking distance. Our room was just right and very up to date and the bathroom spotless. The staff were extremely nice. From the doormen, valet, desk clerk to the concierge. Everyone was helpful and professional. The concierge reccommened excellent restaurants within walking distance and within minutes we had resservations and the local movie theater times printed and in our hands.
We were impressed and will not only return to the Mayflower but will recommend it to friends. Lloved this hotel, staff, location and price. You won't be disappointed!

Stayed June 2007

Booked a room for one night. We chose the Mayflower because it offers two QUEEN beds and I was traveling with my two sisters. The hotel upgraded us to a suite so one sister slept on the sofa bed. Unexpected, very nice. Great service, and beautiful room. Nice bath products, too! Room was very quiet.
I'd certainly stay here again and recommend to others.

Stayed at the Mayflower for a 2 day business meeting on June 5 and 6th. Advice to meeting planners: Think twice of having a meeting if over 70 participants will be at your function. The hotel was overwhelmed. Initially, the Plymouth Room, their largest conference room, which is under the lobby is attractive, but can only handle 8-9 tables of 8-10 people. Secondly, the mens room is up the stairs, across the lobby and down the stairs on the other side-- only the women's restaurant is adjacent to the meeting room. Finally, getting everyone's luggage out after the meeting was too much for 2 people. Chaos ensued for those running to catch a plane.

As far rooms go, I was told I had an upgrade (Room 321). Apparently, I had a little more bathroom space. Unfortunately, the upgrade ended there, since I had a view of the hotel airconditioning unit, light well and having the hotel's mechanical power supply and hydraulic units kick on every few minutes did not allow a great night sleep. If you are given a room that looks into the lightwell, turn around and ask for a room that fronts the streets. You will be Sleepless in Seattle and highly disappointed if you dont.

While most reviews, sound good for the most part, I want TripAdvisor members to be aware of some of the issues of this 80 year old hotel.

Finally, make sure you allow for 15-20 minutes for valet. Your car could be blocks away. Oh, by the way, they charge $28.00 a day.

We were a group of six staying for two nights before our Alaskan cruise. Our room was spacious but the bathroom was tiny (typical for older hotels). The staff was very friendly and tried to be helpful but we were misinformed by the conceirge and bellman on more than one occassion. Our room was quiet but another couple traveling with us said their room was extremely noisy from the street traffic. We were on the same floor but around the corner from them.
I didn't find the bed to be very comfortable as I've read in previous reviews. But I may be bias as I have a tempurpedic bed at home so it is difficult for me to find comfortable beds when traveling.
The monorail station in the mall attached to the hotel is convenient but beware that it only travels to the space needle and back, there are no other stops.
The restaurant attached to the hotel has great breakfast with excellent service.
Seattle is a great city and I would love to travel there again. I might check out a different hotel just to have variety but I'd recommend this hotel to friends or family.

We were in town for a family wedding on Memorial Weekend. We had a wonderful time at this hotel. Two women traveling together could not ask for a better room. Our room had two beds and two bathrooms. The beds are so comfortable you could get spoiled. Great view from our 8th floor room. The room is not that large but for the amount of time we spent in the room it was perfect for us. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go downtown. Bring your walking shoes.
We visited the space needle, pike's market, numerous restaurants, and did lots of shopping.
Hotel staff is very friendly and helpful.
Even if you don't have dinner in the hotel restaurant I would recommend dessert.
We would stay here again.

If you are planning a weekend trip to Seattle, Mayflower Hotel is the place to stay. The location of this historic hotel can't be better. You will be within 5 to 10 walking minutes to everything you should see in Seattle. Places like, Seattle's famous Fresh Market with the most amazing fresh seafood, produce, beautiful flowers and fantastic restaurants; the Underground, Space Needle, Seattle's Waterfront views and you won't even need to exit to the street to take a ride on a Monorail because it is connected with the hotel building. Also this hotel has a complimentary valet parking which is a huge plus considering that all other hotels in the Downtown area charge $25-$30 per night. The rooms are clean and comfortable, a very nice staff. The hotel has a restaurant and a martini bar on the first floor for those who would like to relax after a long day of sightseeing. During your stay in Seattle I would recommend to take one of the Argosy Lock Cruises- it’s really fun and memorable. Here is the link to their website so you can book your tickets in advance. www.argosycruises.com
If this is your first time in Seattle, you are going to fall in love with this city! Enjoy it and have a safe trip.

The hotel itself and our room was stylish and elegant. We paid extra for a deluxe room which was extremely comfortable, quite large and had a view of the Space Needle.

Reception staff and the valet were friendly and professional.

The loaction is excellent. We only had one day there to explore but managed to fit in Pike Place Market, Pioneer Square, some shopping in Macy's and because it's right next door to the monorail, we managed to squeeze in a trip up to the Seattle Centre with a vist to the Space Needle.

This would be our first choice when visiting Seattle again.

  • Liked — Quality of the hotel and room. Also it's excellent location.
  • Disliked — You could hear voices in the next room.
