“Good Option Downtown, Nice new tower!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2008

Stayed at the Seattle Sheraton for one night in December before the Holidays. Have stayed here in the past, and enjoyed returning to the remodeled lobby and new tower. Stayed in the new tower in a corner King (very nice room). Booked the Macy's gift card special, 212, for room and a 100 gift card to Macy's. Not a bad deal for the room at 112.

Check in was very fast. The new tower is a bit of walk to the elevators, so if that is an issue, I would ask for the old tower. As others have said the pool and gym are not in the new tower, so getting to the pool/gym, you must walk through the main lobby and go up to the 35th floor of the old tower.

Room was fantastic, with a good view of Puget Sound (in between other buildings of course). This property is very close to all major shopping, dining, etct in DT Seattle. The Market is three blocks down the street (tough neighborhood, so be aware on your walk).

Parking is brutal, but it is brutal everyplace downtown. Valet is the only option and is 27 a night. We used the Valet due to convenience. They were fast and efficient, unlike other posts have mentioned. I did call in advance to the Valet and ask if my car could be brought up. Both times it was waiting when I arrived 10 minutes later. If you don't need your car, park down by the Seattle Center (much cheaper) and take the monorail to Westlake Center. Hotel is only a few blocks from the Westlake Center. You can also park on the weekends in parking structures around the area for much cheaper, but during the business week it is a wash (five bucks less, and much more of a hassle).

Again the new wing is very modern and nice. Typical 4* starwood property. Nothing wrong with the old wing, just a little more worn out and needs some TLC. Did not use room service this time, but in the past it was pretty good. No complaints.

I would recommend this property.I have also noted that it is frequently bid on through priceline for 99 a night. That would be well worth it for either wing.

Have fun in Seattle. We are local and love going downtown for a night here and then. Would gladly stay at the Sheraton again.

We stayed at the Sheraton Seattle as part of a group attending a large conference in Seattle (Fall, 2007). As many of our conference activities were at the convention center, the Sheraton's location was ideal, within easy walking distance. There were plenty of restaurants nearby for lunch and evening gatherings, and Pike Place Market was about 6 blocks away. Our room was clean, comfortable, and quiet with a partial view (between nearby buildings) of the water. The hotel itself generally was a nondescript downtown Sheraton-- not the nicest we've ever stayed in, but certainly more than adequate for our needs on this business trip.

I surprised my wife and two boys, 2 1/2 & 1 year, with a trip to Seattle for the weekend. We flew into to seattle on a friday evening, and were all ready to relax once we arrived at the hotel. As soon as we walked in the lobby, I was relieved. The hotel far exceeded my expectations.This hotel seemed to be recently remodeled, and was perfect. Our room was a perfect size, with two double beds and room for a crib for the littlest one. We were about six blocks from Pikes Place Market, and only a couple blocks to all the shopping my wife could handle.

Hotel staff was very friendly, and attentive to our needs. After a trip out on our first day, we came back to the room to find the boy's stuffed animals placed lovingly on their beds.

I booked the room on price for $112 per night, for the MLK holiday weekend. Valet parking is $35 per day.

If in the area, I would stay here again in a second.

  • Liked — Location! We walked everywhere.
  • Disliked — No store to buy milk or snack, after hours. The closest mini-mart two blocks away closes at 10pm, and the next closest store is too far to walk.

We stayed here over MLK Weekend and we really liked this hotel. Per other users' recommendations, we requested a room in the new tower. However, our flight was delayed and it was around 2 a.m. PST when we pulled up to the Sheraton. The gentleman working the front desk when we entered was having a very difficult time figuring out how to switch us to the new tower. Finally, he succeeded, and we went up to our room -- turned out he gave us a handicapped room, which meant having a strange bathroom with a seat in the shower and no counter space, as well as railing everywhere. It was way too late for us to have enough energy to ask for a non-handicapped room so we made do and went to sleep. Other than that, the room was quite nice -- brand new everything, including a nice flat-screen TV. Can't complain there! We did head to the original tower on a few occasions to use the gym. The hotel is very large and the pool/gym are on the top floor -- complete with beautiful views of Seattle and the Puget sound! However, for being such a large hotel, we were surprised there were only 4 treadmills. They were always in use and they had a sign on them about a 25 minute time limit when people are waiting. Not a huge deal, but definitely room for some improvement there.

As mentioned by other reviewers, parking is also a problem. $35 to valet is insane. We parked at the Convention Center as it is one of the very few lots we could find in the area that allowed overnight self-parking. However, we were not lucky enough to experience the low rates as posted on the Convention Center website -- we paid around $22/day which is still a good savings from valet but by no means a bargain. I would highly recommend not renting a car if you're only going to be spending your time in Seattle proper, especially if you're staying at the Sheraton. There is a $10 Seattle Airport Shuttle that drops people off directly at the hotel which is definitely cheaper than parking!

Overall, I'd definitely stay here again, just hopefully not in a handicapped room.

This is a great hotel if you get a good price. The location can't be beat (unless you can get right at Pike's Market), and it's just across from Macy's and some other great stores. It's a very manageable walk to the Market and back. It's not too far uphill either way.

The room was nice, the bed comfortable, and the service good.

The restaurant service was a little slow, and the food was somewhat pricey. The breakfast buffet didn't look like a good deal to us, so we ordered off of the menu.

We recommend this hotel and don't have any negative things to say.

  • Liked — The location was really good.
  • Disliked — The restaurant was somewhat overpriced.

I was going to Seattle for the weekend for a quick getaway from Vancouver to do some shopping and go clubbing. I used Priceline to bid on a 4-star hotel room and managed to snag one for $99/night. What a great deal!

I did some research at tripadvisor and discovered that the valet service was inconsistent and expensive, so my friends and I opted to park at the Convention Centre, which was quite close, although there are other garages around which may be a better price. We ended up spending $18 a night which apparently is a lot less than the valet (over $30).

The check in was incredibly efficient, and took literally less than 1 minute.

Also, I requested a room in the 'new' tower, as per the advice of many other reviews on here. The hallways were wide and fairly clean, although it seemed that room-service food sometimes sat around a long time before being cleared away. The rooms were clean and the beds were incredibly comfortable with nice thick pillows and a very nice duvet. The TV was a 36" LG LCD that did receive some channels in HD, although most were analogue SD.

We also had an OK view on the 24th floor (again requested a high floor upon check in). Be aware: the food and minibar items are incredibly expensive and will cost you a lot. Also, local calls are not free and cost $1.75. The only negative was that the pool is inconveniently located in the other tower, which meant we had to trek across the lobby in our swimwear, although that was funny given the looks some guests gave us. Also, the pool had a lot of kids at it, so we avoided the hot-tub and just sat in the sauna. I guess we should have expected this, given the number of families checking in.

Location wise, it is right in the middle of downtown and just off the I5, so it is very easy to locate. It is also fairly close to restaurants and next door to lots of shops.

Overall, I would stay here again, as this experience was very positive and I was very impressed with the value for dollar. I recommend this hotel to anyone, but especially to those who are willing to use Priceline or are familiar with it.

We stayed on the 12th floor of the Deluxe Union tower on a Saturday night in December. It was busy--everyone seemed to have our idea of shopping and seeing a show. I give the hotel credit for speedy check-in/out, and the relatively fast valet parking system, which was packed to the gills during check-out.

We chose this hotel over the Red Lion on 5th Avenue, which is a great location, but is starting to show its age. This room was the same price and sounded much nicer. It was. The flat-screen TV was appreciated, as were the nice sheets and bedspread. Three chairs and the beds gave us an ample lounging area. The bathroom was immaculate, and had modern new fixtures.

Compared to the older Red Lion, we found the room much smaller. Not cramped, but only just. On an excellent customer service note, I called down to Guest Services to request an extra blanket, and they apologized for not already having one in the closet, and for the delay in bringing it up (about an hour) and gave us a complimentary in-room movie! Quite impressive.

Other notes--the room was quiet, with only the faintest of outside noises (some street noise, could hear the shower running next door).
