“Great accommodation - 5 star”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2009

It took us a while to book accommodation in Seattle, but we ended up deciding upon the Sheraton. It was definitely worthwhile staying here. There were four of us, and we all shared a room, as accommodation in Seattle is expensive. We decided on somewhere nicer to stay, but to share a room. The hotel room was spacious enough for 4 adults. It had two double beds, but also had enough space to put out luggage. The hotel was centrally located in Seattle, close to shopping (Macys & Nordstrom), pike place market. Seattle has a free inner city bus service, which we were able to get to from the Amtrak Station (we travelled from Vancouver via Amtrak bus). The hotel had free internet service, which enabled us to keep in contact with friends. Had a spa while here which was great. Had a huge gym by the pool, which was huge. All in all, the room was nice, clean and would definitely stay here again. We paid $149US a night for four of us, so all in all an excellent price.

Stayed February 2009, traveled with friends

stayed at this hotel, feb 2009 on an spg cash and points stay. Was impressed by the size of this hotel. Valet parking was fine, check in was a little slow as there was only one check-in agent manning the desk during our check-in. But total wait time could not have been more than 5 mins. Had access to the club floor and lounge which is great value for the extra money. Continental bfast was more that i expected and very healthy.

One suggestion for management if they read this is for the 2nd floor free weight workout area. I suggest they install mirrors on the wall behind the free weight rack. These mirrors are pretty standard in gyms and i am surprised that the are not installed in a workout room of this caliber.

all in all a trouble free stay and i would return because of the excellent location.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights at the back end of a business trip. The staff was friendly and courteous, the room was beautiful and very clean, and the view was amazing. The hotel is right downtown within walking distance of the Pike Street Market and even the Space Needle. There are a ton of restaurants in the area and lots of shopping as well. I would highly recommend staying here for anyone who's taking a trip to Seattle!

The Sheraton has the perfect location: in the middle of the city, with shopping malls literally around the corner. Pike Market is just a 5 minute walk away.
Our room was big and perfect. Great beds, and the room itself well decorated. It almost looked as if this was a new room. Very comfortable.
All in all a very pleasurable place to stay.
We didn’t use the restaurants in the hotel (too many places around for breakfast, lunch or dinner near the hotel), so I can’t comment on that. There was free internet in the lobby, including wireless for your laptop.

My family and I stayed here during what will be remembered as one of the worst winters Seattle has seen in recent memory.
Fortunately, the Sheraton is a few blocks away from great shopping and walking through the snow wasn't bad at all. In fact, we had to walk to all of our destinations because the Taxi's and Public Transportation system were not running at full capacity. We even walked to Pike's Place and the Aquarium one day and the Seattle Center another (yeah, the monorail was down also!). Still quite bearable from the Sheraton and my son thought running through all the snow was a blast.
A few interesting things I noticed, lots of people smoking, and it didn't seem that most folks walking around were very friendly or courteous at all. I got the feeling that if I didn't get out of someone's way they'd walk into me. Maybe I just thought Seattle would be a little friendlier given the great reputation they have as being such a "liveable" place.
The room was nice and comfortable. About what you'd expect from a four star hotel. Service was okay but not quite the same as a Grand Hyatt or similar.
From what I understand we stayed in the newer renovated tower which is supposed to be much nicer than the other, older tower. We were nearly at the top so views, while not spectacular, weren't bad since you see above most everything other building.
I'd suggest staying away from the in hotel restaurant. Quite expensive and service was mediocre. Just across the street is a ChesseCake Factory which is a much better deal for nearly the same quality of food. Only problem is that the Factory doesn't open for breakfast. My suggestion would be to have a donut and coffee for breakfast, you're in Seattle after all! There really aren't too many simple places to eat in the near vicinity unless you go to the food courts in one of the shopping centers nearby. The ones we went to seemed to be quite upscale so even the food court can be a bit pricey given the type of food served.
All in all a pleasant stay.

We originally planned to stay here before Christmas for some family time since we live in the Seattle area but due to the snow and the poor job of keeping the streets clear by the city (Mayor) we changed our reservation for the weekend after Christmas. We had a special Macy's rate and the hotel was gracious enough to change our reservation and we were able to keep the same rate which included a Macy's gift card of $100. We had a corner king room on the 19th floor in the new Union Street tower. The room was very large with a great view of the city and the water but be forewarned the corner king room does not have a king bed but a queen bed! My husband and I thought the bed (Sheraton Sweet Sleeper) was too hard and each of us woke up with back aches. We have a memory foam bed with a memory foam topper at home for comparison purposes. I was surprised the bathroom was a compact tub/shower combo with a single vanity sink. I expected a separate tub and shower for this size of room especially since this tower was recently built. They had a 32" flat screen LCD TV which was nice however the room is so large it really needs a larger TV. We couldn't read the guide on the the TV because it was so far away from the bed. I loved all the space in this room. There was a large desk area and an over sized chair with an ottoman. there was a large dressing area near the entrance to the room and still lots of room to move around. We had drinks in the lobby bar which was nice but did not eat at any of the hotel restaurants. Cheesecake factory (very good) and Palominos (very bad) were right near the hotel so we ate there. The hotel did not seem very busy so I was surprised there were dishes left out in the hallway for 2 days just down the hall from us. Not a pretty sight on your way out to eat. I would stay in this hotel again in this category of room if we could get a couple of mattress toppers to soften the bed. We had a very enjoyable time in the city and the Sheraton has a great location to shopping and dining and many other things our great city offers.

Upgraded to the concierge floor for $30 and it was well worth it. The hot and cold appetizers and free beverages were excellent quality at both dinner time and breakfast and the view is excellent. The fresh fruits were top quality and well presented.

Oddly, or coincidentally, we agree with the previous reviewer about the sheets. They're way too starchy.

We had no problems with housekeeping, but always, always use the Do Not Disturb sign. It's a hotel, and people come and go at all hours and the housekeeping staff has to do their jobs at all hours too.

We had an excellent stay, and would recommend the Sheraton.
