I wanted to take my adult son on a great Thanksgiving long weekend and spent more than I usually do to stay at the Edgewater. I must say I think it was totally worth it!! I told son that we both need to find someone to love and bring them back here cause it would be an incredible place to stay if one were in love. Our room (244) overlooked the water
and you could open the slider and lean on the railing. There are mugs in the giftshop picturing the Beatles fishing out of one of the rooms!!

The sea gulls fly around outside your window and the duckies do their thing and you occasionally see a ferry boat or big sport boat out on the water. Sounds of the harbor are distant and add to the ambience.

From our room you could see the lit ferris wheel. The first night we were at the hotel we got in very late (almost 11) and they were very nice in the bar and let us order some OUTSTANDING fish & chips. Didn't rush us at all. GREAT views from the bar and seasonally you could eat out on their deck.

The room had a charming functional gas fireplace. We loved the beautiful (though small) bathroom. We both would have liked to have a bathtub beside the shower but its a very nice shower and the room is worth it. Both thought bathroom needs a fan.

Two comfy chairs by the fireplace but would be very very nice to have a small table for drinks and/or coffee by the fire. One can always unfold a luggage stand and put a hardcover city travel book on top and make one's own table but this is a tiny element that should be corrected in my view.

You can walk to space needle, Dale Chihuly museum next door to that and Pacific Museum after that. You can walk to many good restaurants (Anthony's I love) and
many bars and areas. Walk to the famous market area.

Parking is over-priced and only valet, 38 a day but you can take your car out as many times as you want during the day.

The staff is outstanding and gracious and not overly friendly, just genuine friendliness. My son left a cashmere cap in the lobby one day, it was found. I left my coat in the bar the last evening and it was found.

This is a place to make a wonderful memory and I'm sure my son will remember it long after I'm gone...........:)

Room Tip: We stayed in 244 but any room facing the water would be good I think. The other side would be facing Alaskan Way and I think would suck. Unless you love facing the street and city views.

Total Pacific Northwest decor and food. Rooms are fabulously cozy and warm. Bar offered tasty specials. Our third visit and each one becomes more fabulous as we discover parts of Seattle that deserve re-exploration.

Quite an expensive hotel but nice . Wonderful staff in the restaurant.room very comfortable with every amenity. I stayed 2 nights over thanksgiving and it was very busy . Food a bit too fancy for my taste but very tasty and well presented . Very good wine list and staff were clued up on the wines . But on getting my bill I had been charged for valet parking for 2 days . I just noticed it on time before I paid . No apology from the reception guy . I think it was $72 . Quite expensive . Apart from that I would recommend the Edgewater.

Room Tip: If money is no object then choose a sea view room!

Bottom line, if the water and mountain views and eclectic lodge experience are more important to you than a perfect sleeping experience, it is absolutely worth the quirks of the hotel. I went in to see a waterfront room at the Inn at the Market and it overlooks a busy highway- and then there is the water with a lot of indistrial cranes in the background. I would rather stay at The Edgewater which is you and the water- like being on a cruise ship- with nothing industrial in sight if..... IMPORTANT: you ask to face WEST or you may have a waterfront room with a view of the cruise ship terminal.

I was scared to book this hotel based on bad reviews but was forced to stay there due to an error on my part with a reservation at Inn at the Market. I am glad I made that error because this was one of the more memorable experiences I have had at a hotel after travelling to over 30 countries. I will tell you fact from fiction based on reviews I have read on this site starting with things that worried me most before I arrived:

FACT: The walls are thin and you will hear your neighbors.
This wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Since I knew it going in, I guess I just got over it. The view was worth it!

FACT: The fireplace has a timer that beeps when it is about to turn off- which can disturb you if you care to fall asleep.
This is indeed very ignorant. Like another reviewer said, I don't need to know when it is turning off. (FYI- you can press and hold the timer button until the number of hours increase beyond 1 hour and to the number of hours you desire)

FACT: You will hear the train even from the waterfront rooms.
Yes you will. It was in no way overpowering or unsettling. If you like the sound of trains it is relaxing.

FACT: The decor is eclectic and a mix of almost everything.
This is true but it did feel like a Northwest lodge that was simply eclectic. It is what makes the hotel unique. No, it doesn't look like a midtown Manhattan designer boutique hotel. Yes, this designer looks he/she selected things randomly. That gave it charm to me and unexpected visual stimulation.

FACT: You will hear the seagulls in the waterfront room.
I heard them but again, they were not obnoxious. Hopefully you are booking the waterview because you like nature. If they were outrageously loud, I would tell you- but they are not.

FACT: The Heater/Airconditioning unit is disturbingly loud.
Correct! Wow. It was so loud that it felt like it vibrated the bed. It was so loud, we couldn't even hold a conversation or hear TV with it on. It sounded like a jet engine. Forget it, we had to turn it off and use the fireplace for heat instead which actually got the room too hot. Once the room warmed up, we turned off the fireplace too- and the room stayed toasty all night. No need for either.

FACT: It is not worth it to stay here unless you have the Waterview room.
This is true. I would not stay here otherwise.

FACT: The hotel is some distance from the heart of the action in Seattle.
True. The free shuttle worked very reliably and promptly. Use it. Cabs are difficult to get in Seattle, one time I called a taxi and ELEVEN people were ahead of me. Having the shuttle is actually big plus!

The following were found to be contrary to what I read on TripAdvisor:

The hallways are NOT dark and creepy with damp, smelly, carpet.
They were actually bright and nicely decorated. HOWEVER, I was on the third floor. I went to the first floor to see if the smell was related to being on ground level, and I could smell a slight damp, musty odor. It wasn't too terrible and other people may not even notice. Let's just say, third floor was better.

The furniture in the room ISN'T exceptionally old and dated.
The room felt like a lodge. If you are looking for the Ritz Carlton or Four Seasons, this isn't it. If you want cozy lodge- this is your place! The fireplace and large wood bed posts and such really felt warm.

The bed is NOT horrible. Everyone's opinion will be different about bed comfort but it was by no means terrible.

Room Tip: Ask for a WEST facing full waterview room on top floor
