Contrary to many of the reviews here, our recent stay at the Edgewater was pleasantly pleasant. With all the comments on the size of the rooms, we were expecting a phone booth, but are pleased to report the room size was adequate.

We got a room facing the city, and yes you can see the rail tracks but that didn't bother us much. Parking is valet only at $30 plus tax, but worth every penny as other lots in the area are iffy at best.

We enjoyed the lobby fireplace and lounge area. Just kick back and stare at the water.

The fact we didn't pay full fare probably enhanced our stay. $72 though PL is tough to complain.

We spent 4 nights here and were disappointed with just about everything to do with this hotel except the food in the restaurant.

The fireplace in our first room did not work. After 2 visits by maintenance people and 3 calls, we were switched to a new room.

The fireplace in the second room gave off a strong gas smell. The maintenance person who checked it out told us other guests had reported the same problem in this room but after having used a gas sniffer the staff had decided the smell was from the fake fireplace logs heating up. We have owned a number of gas fireplaces and never had any gas smells from them like this. He also offered to switch us again but we decided to keep the deck door open a bit to provide fresh air rather than go through the bother of switching.

The internet access was extremely slow most of the time - more like dial up than high speed. You could watch the various frames paint in the windows when they finally did display. We paid $10 a day for this - not advertised on the web site and usually free at other hotels we've stayed at.

The parking is valet only. Again this isn't clear from the web site but the real shocker is a $30 per day charge for the service. There are commercial lots in the area but they are across active railway tracks, don't stay open all night, and have no security so you don't really have any choice.

The food in the restaurant is excellent but they constantly play techno music which can get very annoying after a while.

The halls were cold and didn't appear to be heated. The art work on the walls looked extremely faded with mostly blue colors left.

The furnishings in the room were quite nice and would fit into a 4 star class hotel. However the bathroom sink has a design flaw and doesn't drain well. To address this the hotel provides a card on the sink that starts with " Hello. My name is Sink". That certainly isn't 4 star quality.

The view from our room was outstanding - out across to Alki Beach and the Olympics. However the rooms on the other side of the hotel face active railway tracks so are really to be avoided. The trains run all night.

We stayed 3 nights at this hotel. Location is fantastic and we had a beautiful view out on the bay. Loved the room except we were wondering how much a patio or deck would add to the bill. We loved the sounds and smells of the bay. Our first night we just sat by the fire and looked out the window! Magnificent. I dont want to stay anywhere else! The room was comfortable and we loved the decor and the optional open bath. We recieved nothing but outstanding service from all employees. We did not visit the restaurant but we did sample the room service menu. The items we recieved were delivered in a timely manner and the food was delicious! The Location is within walking distance to most attractions and those that are not it is easy to hop on the frequent passing transit system which is free during the day. There is a charge for parking at the hotel but we decided our vehicle was much safer there than the alternatives. Its much easier to get around Seattle using the transit system opposed to trying to drive and park. The hotel even has a complementary shuttle offering to transport you to and from the Seattle attractions. We didn't have a need to use that service as the weather was quite accomidating. I definitely recommend this hotel as the best in Seattle but only if you enjoy sounds and smells of the bay! There are many boats coming and going at all hours and there is the aroma of the sea water and the activity on the bay.

The website for this place doesn't do it's justice. I was a little bit afraid that this hotel would be for old folks but I was wrong. It's actually very refreshingly hip, yet cozy and has the personality that larger chain hotels lack incredibly. The staff here was also very personable and "human". The lounge called "67" is very cool for drinks or food anytime. There are seats right next to the water and it was very chic. I could imagine some great nightlife here during the right time.

We stayed on the first floor with a balcony and a fire place. It was great, except that you can hear the water lapping up against the walls at night. Maybe it would have been better if I stayed on the upper floors. Also, we had some trouble with the fire place but I'm sure if we stayed there longer, we would have got the hang of it. Also, we could hear people walking in the room above us at night, so that was a disruption.

Overall though, I would stay there again and am really glad we went there.

We stayed at this hotel upon the recommendation of our travel agent. We were going on an Alaskan cruise, and stayed here the night before. The room was terribly expensive and very, very small. Our cabin on the cruise line was bigger than this hotel room. Also, there was a wedding on the floor that we stayed on, and kept us up most of the night. The management did not seem to care of our inconvenience. The food at the restaurant was very overpriced for what we got. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone!
