Mayflower Park Hotel
Ranked #17 of 104 Hotels in Seattle
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 17, 2010

Delightful gracious hotel, beautifully renovated. Great location. Next to monorail and light rail stations (easily caught the light rail from Seatac straight to the hotel). Short walk to Pikes Market. 'Classic' room not large but ample for my four night stay. Excellent value. Have previously stayed at W and Crowne Plaza and would choose the Mayflower Park over these others on future.

My wife and I opted to break from our usual chain stays to take in this hotel, because it is ideally situated close to the Pike Place Market and the Monorail.

I can't speak positively enough about the location. It is in or near the center of everything touristy. The price is competitive with the chains in the market, and it's worth it to eschew earning points for a more convenient and frankly nicer room.

Upon the advice of some of the other reviewers, we opted for a double queen room over the standard queen room to get more space. For an extra $20 nightly, we got two queen beds, room to spread out and two full bathrooms. The view of the surrounding area is terrific from the room, and the air condition in our room is above average.

The service was prompt, gracious, and appreciative. The valet was prompt and eager. The classic elegance of the lobby and attention upon check in are not to be missed.

The room itself was clean and updated. There are no plugs above desk level (important if you travel with several electronic devices), but plugs located above baseboard level all around the room more than make up for this. The HD Visio television in the room was not overly large but does the job. Curtains can be closed completely.

The bed is hard, but not overbearingly so. Not great for a bad back, but it won't leave you immobilized like some other chain beds.

The bathrooms are satisfactory. However, the shower head is difficult to deal with if you're taller than 5' 4" and would be unusable for an extended stay if you are exceptionally tall (they are fine, however, for persons of size). The bathrooms in our room were not vented, and that lends to giving the rooms a dirtier appearance. It appears as if the walls in the rooms and their respective doors had been neither painter nor cleaned in quite some time.

Skip the room service from Oliver's. Delivery was prompt and the price was reasonable but the food was not very good.

For those of us who are late risers, the noon check out time is appreciated.

Don't let the negatives distract you from the overwhelming positives, unless you are over 6' tall, however. The location is fantastic, the rooms themselves are really well done, the lobby exudes elegance and the view is fantastic from the upper floors.

Family and friends from all over the country stayed at the Mayflower for our daughters wedding in the city. Every level of service was excellent. Booking a group of rooms, the concierge desk answering many questions and helping find services, a whimsical bridal Tea Party! From the moment we pulled up to the hotel to the moment we left I always felt that there was not one need that could not be handled. A beautiful, historical hotel with many wonderful personal touches. And the location is perfect!!

Very nice hotel, we had booked a double double Queen room and to our surprise we also had 2 bathrooms. we were on the 12th floor so had views of space needle . the hotel is only a 5-10 min walk to the markets. you are also able to walk to the shopping centre next door via an inside walkway . There is also the monorail station to the space needle and the underground transit stop in the shopping complex so getting around is no problem. The Martini bar was very nice and and relaxing and the staff were very knowlegable on the martini menu. We only ate at the restaurant for breakfast but is was very nice and i thought the prices were reasonable. There are 2 computers next to the Check in desk that you can use and also print from (free of charge). all the staff were friendly and helpful.

Our four night stay in this wonderful hotel was just lovely. Everything expected of a 5 star hotel. I think it is an historic building which has been kept in very good condition. We didn't allow enough time to see all Seattle has to offer. It is an hotel I would be very happy to stay at again.

If you like small European boutique hotels ,look no further ! Not cheap, but then the service was great ! Stayed here with my sister for a further 3 nights after an Alaska cruise in August to get to see some more of Seattle. We both loved the hotel, the friendly staff , the chic rooms and comfortable beds ! Also dinner and breakfast in the restaurant was excellent. If I ever go back to Seattle I will definitely stay there again !

We stayed here prior to an Alaskan cruise. The hotel is tastefully decorated and well run. Maceys is directly opposite however the street noise was minimal and it is only a ten minute walk to Pike Place Market, a must see in Seattle.
