I was recommended this hotel by my cousin who stays here whenever she's in Seattle, and warned us that this place isn't fancy by any means, but is the best value compared to others in the area. The location of the hotel really can't be beat, within a couple of blocks from the Pike Place market, the first Starbucks, waterfront restaurants, ferries and the downtown shopping area. It's also a short bus or sky train ride ($2.25) to the Space Needle, EMP music experience, science centre, IMAX etc. The hotel itself is old, however our room was nice enough and the bathroom was big. I was staying here with my parents so we had a room with 2 queens on the 7th (top) floor. Wifi worked well in both the room and the lobby. The room is lacking some things like a hair dryer, coffee maker, ironing board/iron etc and there is no air conditioning but did have a small portable fan in the room which we didn't use as we visited in spring, and it was cold and rainy. The heaters are the old oil heater type things and were difficult to adjust. The room would get so hot and stuffy that we had to open a window and then it would get too cold. Despite the comfortable beds, I didn't get a good night sleep during my stay because of the heating issues.
Parking is at the 3rd & Stewart garage which is a block away, for $15 a night. Just be mindful that there's no in and out privileges, so leave the car parked if you can.
The staff here are incredibly friendly and helpful, especially Tracey who was more than happy to give us a bunch of recommendations on where to dine, what to see and directions around town.
So, while there are definitely pros and cons, the bottom line is that you get what you pay for... and I would probably stay here again purely for the location!
