The Edgewater, A Noble House Hotel

Reviewed April 20, 2010

The location of this hotel is wonderful. It is within walking distance to Pike Place Market and the Seattle Aquarium. The views from both our room and the lobby were spectacular. We booked through hotels.com and received a good deal. We paid extra to have the waterfront premium room. The best part of this hotel was the view from outside our room. You could open the window and lean your head out over the water. We could see the mountains and the ferries go by. We even saw a jelly fish float by our room. Everything about the room and stay, thus far was great. The problems started when we tried to go to sleep. Someone on the floor above us took a shower around 11 pm at night. This should not have been a problem except we could hear the water rushing through the pipes and the water hitting the floor in the shower above us. We could also hear kids running around and giggling upstairs. It seemed to me that the walls and floors are pretty thin. Even though we did not get much sleep, I would probably stay here again. There is nothing like the views you can see from your room, if you have the right one. I would never stay here if I had a city view. It is too expensive and the walls are too thin.

We stayed at this hotel the weekend of April 17th. From the moment we drove our car up to their valet parking and went to check in we were greated with wonderful staff and very helpful too. The lobby of the hotel is great with a view of the water and our room was on the smaller side but nicely decorated. The bed was comfortable. We had a city view on the 4th floor, overlooking the hill up to the Space Needle and also train tracks. We didn't find the trains too disturbing and it was rather interesting watching them go by. We used the hotel's shuttle bus to get to shopping areas and the Paramount Theatre. We also had drinks in their bar and the service was great. Valet parking was rather expensive at close to $40.00 with taxes included but we found a good deal on priceline for the room $75.00 for the night plus taxes so at this rate were okay with paying for the valet parking. We will definately be back.

We got a room on the non water side that had a spectacular view of the space needle. Although a couple of trains did roll by during our one night stay, none after 10 pm. How can you complain about a room in the city on the water for just over $100. Great place for dogs; lots of places to walk, other dogs to meet and the room did not stink, was well appointed although small. Best and funnest pet friendly place I've seen since Doris Day's place in Carmel, CA. If you are taking ferry to Victoria, BC Canada, perfect place to stay; the ferry leaves right next door. We all; my husband and I and our westie and scotty had a great time here.

I spent one night in a double room, room clean and spacious with fire & small living area, large television and comfortable beds. Breakfast was suprisingly not inclusive of the expensive rate and was a little overpriced, but excellent meal. Valet attendents, concierge & cleaning staff very friendly, excellent service, receptionist not so much. Stunning foyer/ bar area on top of the waterfront. Internet available in business area but wifi not free.

I know, I know ... you were so excited to get that "four star" hotel on Priceline.com for less than $100 until you started reading the reviews and realized that you had been duped. Yes, you can almost be guaranteed that the Edgewater hotel will put you on the "city side" of the hotel (read: train tracks and parking lot/street noise) if you booked through Priceline.com. You may be one of the few luck ones, but it's not likely.

Now that you have a reservation that cannot be changed or refunded, take a minute to just suck it up and let's make the best of it:

Hopefully you bid only $70 to $80 for your room. If you are OK with trains and traffic outside your room, you can stop reading now. If you want the "four star" room you were promised, or as close to it as possible, read on:

1) Call the hotel immediately and ask to have your room upgraded to the water side (the side of the hotel the happy reviewers are talking about). A "partial water view" is currently $30 more and a "full water view" is $60 more per night. The partial water view is a joke. You will have a full view of a pier across the way with some dirty water between your window and the pier. Get the full water view upgrade. I know, it sucks, you're now paying $93 more ($33 for valet and $60 for a view) than you intended when booking through Priceline.com, but @ $163 to $173 per night, you are still paying half of what the hotel website is charging.

2) Whether you take my advice to upgrade, or not, you want to be in a room with a number of x40 or high - i.e., 240 instead of 232 or 156 instead of 122. Why you ask ... because the lower numbered rooms are closer to the street and train tracks. Of course if you have an odd-numbered room, you are on the parking lot/street side of the hotel anyway, but you can still make the best of it by trying to get as far away from the tracks as possible.

3) If you do upgrade to the water side of the hotel and ask for a "full view" room, make sure you are given an even number higher than x40 and preferably higher than x50. For example, 242 does not have as good a view of the water as 256 and 228 almost certainly will give you a wonderful view of a pier with train/street noise (note the sarcasm here). Also, as with all hotels, the higher the floor, the
better the view. The 100's are almost at water level, 200's and 300's are fine, and the 400's are suites on the top floor. If you get an even numbered room, higher than x40 on either the second or third floor, you will be fine.

4) Parking is "valet only" @ $33 per night. Add this into your nightly cost. I know, it's outrageous that you are paying $33 per night to have a valet drive your car about 45 feet from where you dropped it off and you probably could have done this yourself, but you are just going to have to live with this too. If you don't want to pay the extra $33 per night for your room (plus tips), don't drive.

Business Center: Two computers with internet in cramped room on each floor.
Restaurant: Beautiful view, too pricey for the selection and qualify offered.
Lobby: Some of the best views in the hotel. Bring your drinks and enjoy!
Shuttle: The hotel does have a shuttle that can get you downtown, to Pike's Place or the Ferry Building, but keep in mind they can only operate within 1.5 miles of the hotel, so something like the Space Needs would be out.

The bathrooms are nice - great showing. Sinks are odd and back up pretty frequently unless you only turn the faucets on half way. Furniture is old and tacky.

We got the hotel room on a cheap rate through priceline and was given only a king size bed for 4 travelers, so one of us had to sleep on a cot. The room was super cold when we got there because the heat had cut off due to the wind storm. The location is pretty far from the shopping district and the rest of the marketplace area. The decor is very cottage like which isn't what I'd expect from a 5 star, maybe a travelodge type hotel. Definitely would look into a hotel that is closer to the shopping district next time! wouldn't want to stay here again, location sucks and valet parking is $39! we parked across the street at a parking garage for $18 overnight.
