“Exceptionally nice hotel, a tad expensive”
Reviewed September 18, 2009

We had previously booked at another hotel in Seattle & were incredibly disappointed, which is how we found ourselves at the Sheraton. The staff was wonderful and after our tiring day we were extremely grateful. Mostly used as a business hotel, this was is very nice, marble floors, leather lounging chairs & everyone dressed as if they're on their way to the meeting of the century. Rooms were exceptionally clean and spacious. Excellent location & easily walkable to Pike's. The one gripe I have about the hotel is that for paying so much money, it would be very nice to have free internet in the rooms. That cost $10.95. It was free in the lobby but a pain having to walk to the lobby each time instead of the comfort of my room. Overall nice hotel, great location.

I stayed at the Sheraton Seattle for two days attending a convention at the hotel. As previous reviews have stated the location is excellent. Easy walking distance to shopping, Pike Place Market and a short cab ride to stadiums, etc. There are two towers in this hotel - the newer Union St. Tower and the original Pike St. Tower. I had king room in the Pike St. Tower. The room is spacious but starting to show signs of wear and tear. I was dissappointed with the bed compared to comparable hotels - sheets had extra starch. Housekeeping could use some training as floors were not vaccumed, bathroom counters not wiped down etc. Front desk staff friendly and effecient. Great fitness center with modern equipment on the 35th floor. For the money, I think there are comporable hotels that would provide more for the same money.

We fully enjoyed our stay at the Seattle Sheraton. The valet, bellboys and reception staff were all very efficient, helpful and smiling. Great location to both downtown and Capitol Hill. Nice that you had the choice of both a "to-go"-counter and restaurant on site, giving you more choices eg. when choosing where and how much time you will spend to have breakfast.

One of those enormous hotels, which I'm sure does great convention business. However, as an independent traveller, I was disappointed by the brusque attitude at check-in, and then by the room itself, which looked a bit dated. We were on the Club level, which includes both breakfast and hors d'oeuvres in the Club Lounge - again, disappointing from the perspective of how very busy it was, with guests often waiting for a seat, and the dirty windows (a lot of bird poop) which need to be cleaned more regularly. The food served, however, was good. Back in the room, the walls are quite thin and we had to call down to reception more than once to ask them to get our neighbours to quieten down. Location-wise, you couldn't ask for better, with Nordstrom just 1 block away and Pike Place Market about a 10 minute walk.

We spent 2 nights at the Sheraton Seattle, prior to our Alaska cruise. The location is great, and the entire staff we encountered were very friendly. We took a taxi from the airport, it was $40.00 plus tip for 4 people. Check in was a breeze! We arrived around 1:30pm, expecting to only be able to drop our luggage off. Our room was available, and we were on our way in less than 5 minutes. Our room was on the 17th floor of the Pike Tower with a view down 6th Avenue. The room was very comfortable, although the carpet was rather worn, and stained. It really needs to be replaced. I heard no street or hallway noise, and the beds were very comfy. We had lunch at the Taphouse Grill, about a block down 6th Avenue. It was very good, and quite a sight to see, as they have some 160 beers on tap. We had breakfast in the hotel restuarant the first morning, we ordered off the menu, as the buffet was $20.00 per person. It was very good, but still ending up costing $40.00 for 2 people...pretty steep for breakfast! The next morning we had scones and cinnamon rolls from the little coffee shop in the lobby....they were excellent, and less than $5.00! The concierge arranged for a shuttle for 6 of us to the pier, it was $54.00 plus tip. I thought the price was a little high for a 10 minute ride, but he was right on time, loaded and unloaded our bags, and was very pleasant. I thought the Sheraton was an excellent choice for downtown, and at $112.00 a night, you couldn't beat the price. I would highly recommend the Sheraton, and would definately stay there again if ever in Seattle.

Location of the hotel was excellent, quick drive from I-5 and proximity to Pike Market was excellent. Hotel is located in the shopping district across from American Eagle and quick walk to Nordstrom, Macys etc.,

Hotel is huge so valet, check-in was extremely busy during our stay not very friendly. Room was good not much of a view. Room was clean, beds were comfortable. Couple of issues during our stay nothing major.

Nice hotel - nothing extraordinary - room clean, spacious; no bathrobe for us mere mortals; no view from the room (across an office building; below the ceiling of another building). Door was knocked when the staff tried to deliver a bathrobe to me by mistake, so a bit fuzzy - the snacks available as part of "minibar" were out of date but wouldn't have had them anyway so didn't really mind though it gives a bad impression somewhat. Location pretty central, shopping areas and market by the shore within walking reach, next to the financial district so pretty tranquil. Checked in too early and could not get a room, once returned to the desk, had to queue again and do most of the checking anew though promised a simple key fetch so was disappointed at that point. My room had no free internet which these days is often complimentary so that's another disadvantage. But room was quiet and big enough. Might consider staying there again, but not necessarily, though nothing really to complain about big time.
