“Decent, but not luxury”
Reviewed April 14, 2008

Hello, my wife and I stayed at the Hotel Andra for three nights in March. We found the hotel to be clean, quiet, and comfortable. The Lola restaurant was decent, with good service.

I wouldn't go so far as to call this a luxury hotel, it seemed somewhat basic, though comfortable. We didn't require much from the hotel staff, so we didn't have much interaction with them; they didn't really go out of their way to see how we were doing. The valet parking was a bit expensive ($35/night) and one night the valet left our car lights on, requiring a jump start the next morning. Otherwise, not a bad experience.

Hotel Andra was the perfect hotel for our 4 day getaway in Seattle! We were upgraded to a junior suite, which had a king size bed and sofa/sitting area. The only downside about the room is the small bathroom, but that's the only thing I can somewhat complain about. The bedding and pillows were extremely comfortable for a hotel, and the location is perfect. We took the bus (only $1.50) downtown and only walked 5 minutes to the hotel. It was 5-10 minutes walking distance to everything we wanted...shopping, Pike Place Market, and good eats! I definitely recommend staying here for anyone who wants a moderately priced hotel in an ideal location!

We stayed for one night this month since we were in the city for a concert and this hotel is in a perfect location. The ambiance of the lobby, low-key and professional desk staff, and the charming valet made us feel quite welcome. We were upgraded to a junior suite, which gave us a sofa and chair and it was good that it wasn't football season because my husband eyed that flat panel television with longing. Rooms are quiet, bed comfortable, and bathrooms well-laid out. Dinner at Lola (adjoining the hotel) is a fantastic experience, and so (unexpectedly) was breakfast. We'll definitely be back.

I agree with all the nice things that have already been said about Hotel Andra - its perfect location, its gorgeous lobby, its attention to details...Everything is close to perfection. Even the elevators are nice! You really feel in a comfortable place when you walk in, especially in winter. We had a free upgrade from our room to a junior suite - which was a very nice gesture and even though the suites are not huge, it's more than enough for two people. The furniture is modern with clean lines, the bathroom is more retro but has still all the amenities. They provide you with a lot of thick towels and bathrobes, a definite plus on my list!! And the lightning is amazing. But what I will definitely remember is the bedding. The sheets are soooooooooo comfortable, it was hard to leave the bed!!! I would definitely recommend Hotel Andra to anybody who would visit Seattle. I can't wait to go back!

Loved the hotel--had great service from everyone. Short walk to the Pike Street Market. You might take their concierge advice with a grain of salt, it seems that they direct you to only a family of establishments.

This is our second stay at Hotel Andra - we love everything about this boutique hotel. The staff is friendly and helpful. Andra is pet-friendly and welcomed our small dog with a gift bag of dog bones! We love spending the morning in the lobby by the fireplace with treats and coffee from the Dahlia Bakery (across the street). With all of the Tom Douglas restaurants nearby, you don't have to venture far for excellent food. We enjoyed meals at Lola, Serious Pie, Etta's and the Dahlia Bakery - all great food. Location is great for downtown, Belltown and the Pike Place Market. We enjoyed and appreciated a complimentary upgrade to a junior suite - the room was perfect! Seattle is my hometown, so I know it well - and think that Hotel Andra provides a wonderful base camp!

I stayed at the Hotel Andra during a business trip in October 2007. Walking distance to the convention center and prime shopping in Seattle. This hotel is not directly serviced by the Downtown Airporter (shuttle between airport and downtown hotels) but the hotel immediately next door (the Warwick) is a stop so you can get off there and then walk the 1/2 block to the Andra. It's a lovely boutique hotel--appears recently remodeled. Very modern lobby with cozy fireplace. The front desk staff were very helpful and friendly. My room was spacious with 2 queen beds, sitting area, bar area. Decor is very modern---kind of Ikea-esque. View of neighboring construction site, unfortunately, but interestingly enough I never really heard the annoying sounds of construction. Pretty small bathroom compared to other hotels but nice nevertheless. Frette towels and Face Stockholm bath products---luxurious! They had a very small business center with 2 computers and printers--free of charge. I didn't use the gym so I can't comment. Had to pay a daily rate for in-room wireless. Lots of great eating options within walking distance. The restaurant in the lobby, Lola, is AMAZING! A Tom Douglas establishment that has a mediterranean theme and definitely lived up to the hype. There's also another Tom Douglas restaurant across the street, Dahlia Lounge, that had the most amazing donuts on the menu for dessert, served warm with marscarpone cheese and green apple butter. Again, amazing! Adjacent to that is the Dahlia bakery, which is great for that cup of morning coffee and a pastry. Overall, I would definitely stay here again when visiting Seattle.
