When I booked this place, I thought it would be hit or miss because of the reviews--could've been cheesy, over-the-top lodge decor w/ holiday inn style breakfast or a tasteful, comfortable place to stay in November in Seattle. Turned out to be the latter.
The rooms were great--a very comfy king size bed with a big window looking out on Port of Seattle and Bainbridge Island. Nice gas fireplace and sitting area. And the bathroom was awesome--a big glass shower with claw foot tub and sliding doors that opened so you could be in the bath and see both the harbor and your TV. That's livin' jack.
The bar is quite the scene at night, but I think there was a senior prom or something going on one night, which was lame. And breakfast in the restaurant was pretty darn good.
My only complaint was the valet out front. The only draw back being on the water in Seattle is that if you're not going to Elliot's/ Ivars or Pike's Place, its a cab ride and the group of guys valeting were total luggage. They just didn't give a damn, which made leaving the hotel for, say, dinner a much longer ordeal than necessary.More
