I stayed in the Sheraton for a meeting of my professional society, but brought my husband since we had family in the area. Check-in was efficient and they handled our two requests (two queen beds, and linking a reservation for a 5th night to our reservation for the first 4 nights so we could stay in the same room) easily. We were also able to get into our room at 2 PM- a little earlier than the usual check-in time.
The room was large, immaculately clean and looked recently renovated. If you like to read in the bathtub, this was one of the lightest, brightest bathtub/shower enclosures I’ve ever seen. We had a partial view of the Sound and the mountains between a couple of buildings. Sunday morning rolled around and there was a complimentary paper at our door- a real local paper, not USAToday. This may have been an SPG perk. We got USAToday during the week, however.
In the rooms there is a cable high-speed Internet connection at the desk rather than Wi-Fi, restricting where you can use the computer- Wi Fi would be a big improvement in a hotel that obviously has heavy business traffic. It was $10 per 24 hours, with no other pricing options available- comparable to what I see in most high-end chain hotels in the US but I think they should all build it into the room rate and be done with it. It was, however, user-friendly and reliable. Free Wi-Fi was available in the lobby but it was very slow.
Everything was within a reasonable walking distance of the hotel- Pike Place Market, museums, shopping and the water.
The only weakness in this hotel was the housekeeping. The rooms were kept clean but my husband had a hard time getting extra sugar packets from the maid until he attempted it in Spanish. No matter what their country of origin, maids need some basic “tourist English” vocabulary. Our last day at the Sheraton, I developed a bad stomach virus and spent the day in the room. We hung out the “Do Not Disturb” sign and, in addition, my husband told the front desk not to disturb us. At 2 PM I was awakened by a call from Housekeeping. Did we need our room serviced? What part of “Do not Disturb” do they not get? We also had our room keys fail twice and had to have them replaced at the front desk.
The Fitness Center and pool were large and well-equipped. The elliptical trainers and treadmills even had an iPod dock so you could control the menu from the monitor on your equipment. At the far end of the pool area, in addition to the towel supply, you’ll find lockers where you specify your own combination. If you plan to be there a lot, ask for a room in the Pike Street Tower- otherwise you need to go down to the lobby from your room in the Union Street Tower, across the lobby, and up the Pike Street elevators to the 35th floor.
This hotel was a very good choice for a 5-night stay; the room was big enough that we could spread out and not be claustrophobic. The room rate for our group ($200/night) was very reasonable. We hope to return to the Sheraton.
