“Great location for exploring Seattle.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Booked this hotel with a last minute travel site. We have stayed at other similar hotels in Seattle, but the Roosevelt is where we'd stay again. I loved the attached pub with drink specials every half hour. The room, though obviously old, was not shabby or worn. There would have been enough space for a toddler bed, had we needed it.

The bed was comfortable, I don't recall the room being noisy. Each floor only has about 8 rooms, so there isn't a lot of hallway traffic. That was really nice actually. The in-room wi-fi worked well too.

Booked one of the hotel/Broadway play packages directly through this hotel (which opened in 1924.) This included parking and a gift card to one of three local restaurants. We were thrilled to have a quiet room in such a busy corner of Seattle- slept like logs in an updated room. Local restaurants were A1, including the next door Martini bar with crazy specials on a roulette wheel that is spun every 1/2 hour. The theatre was practically across the street, the market a few blocks walk down the hill.
We couldn't have been happier with this location. We didnt drive all weekend and knew the car was secure.
The staff were very hospitable and treated you like you were someone pretty special! A perfect get away.

We had a 'girls' weekend. The SHOPPING PACKAGE was outstanding value. you were given $50 and $25 x 2 gift certificates at shopping centres across the street (lululemon, michael kors, etc) and $40 food credit at Purple Rest....without any hitches and this package included parking in the heart of the city. Rooms were okay but clean. Bathrooms small but it is a hotel built in 1904! The pub has fabulous drinks cheap and great atmosphere!

The Roosevelt Hotel is an excellent location in Seattle, corner of 7th and Pine. Easy walking to Pike Place, Pacific Place and Kells Irish Pub. Quick monorail ride to the Space Needle, EMP, Pacific Science Center. Controlled key card access to operate the elevators. Rooms are clean and a good size for a downtown hotel. Overall, an average hotel with an excellent location.

Such a great experience! In the heart of downtown, easy access to everything, beautifully decorated room, great view of the Puget Sound, great comfy beds, AND huge plus for business travel, there's free wi-fi in the rooms and free printing in the business center. Couldn't ask for more and will be back.

Loved my stay at the Roosevelt hotel. The staff was so helpful and the room was great. The location was perfect for my needs. They have a beautiful lobby with a fireplace and computer, available for anyone. Also, they offer free coffee (but I think that is only in the morning).

Stayed at the Roosevelt on a five day stay in Seattle. The hotel is centrally located downtown, minutes to the convention center, a Hertz car rental office, fine restaurants, shopping and the Monorail. It is a ten minute walk to Pikes Place Market. Lobby is comfortable, staff was friendly. There is a Starbucks right across the street if you want fresh coffee in the morning. Our room (507) was very comfortable, modern, clean, comfortable queen bed, room a bit small. We picked up a rental car at 9am at the downtown Hertz office, drove up to Future of Flight Boeing Tour (about 40 minutes), and returned the car in the same day. Very convenient, cost effective and it was an easy trip. If you do this, top off the gas tank before entering back into the city since it took us quit a while to find a gas station in seattle. I would recommend the Roosevelt.
