“Good to go”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2014

I recently stayed at this hotel for two nights. We were visiting Seattle for pleasure. The location is excellent , very central for shopping and good restaurants. A short walk to Pikes Place Market which is a fun place to visit. We had breakfast at Lowrey's located in the market. It is cheap and cheerful with a nice view. Our room at the Roosevelt also had a nice view with comfortable quiet rooms, I would stay there again.

If you're looking for a place to stay right in the middle of the action in downtown Seattle, you might want to consider The Roosevelt. My room was ridiculously small -- smaller than any room I have ever had -- but the location to shopping, restaurants, and the convention center is excellent.

Room Tip: This is an old hotel that has been updated over the years, however, the single room I had for one ni...

Yes, it's close to Pike's Market and the waterfront and, the light railway which is ideal. Shopping is all around the hotel if that's what you want. Check in worked very well and the staff were very polite and helpful giving some sound advice about restaurants, travel etc. etc.
Our room was very comfortable and had all the amenities even with a wet bar. If there was a downside it would have to be the "tiny" bathroom. "Swinging a cat" would have been impossible. There is no restaurant but coffee is available in the lobby in the morning. Starbucks is "across the road" and there is no shortage of other cafes or restaurants either.
We would have absolutely no problem in recommending the Roosevelt.

Room Tip: Go for higher level floor rooms!

We booked three nights, which was unfortunate. The one plus is the location, which is very close to Pike's Market and only one block from the light rail station. On the down side, our room was ridiculously small, and the window faced a wall. I did peek into other rooms which were much nicer. So you need to definitely do a room request at the time of booking, because our room was definitely substandard for the price we paid.

I am not sure how this hotel got such high reviews, unless the reviews came from people who stayed in one of the better rooms.

Room Tip: Definitely try to get a larger room, and preferably on one of the higher floors. We are on floor 9...

Old style hotel but right downtown, close to everything you need / want in Seattle. Nice rooms, pleasant staff. Lacks lobby bar and restaurant but close to all major amenities and attractions. Staff was competent, co-operative and very pleasant and helpful. Even ordered us taxis to the cruise terminal and had there at our requested departure time. Overall, very pleasant experience at a reasonable rate.

I booked this hotel through a tour agency. I wanted downtown and within walking distance of Pike's Market for our one-night stay. The room was very nice - very clean. It was available early in the AM rather than the advertised 4PM check-in which was very nice for our early arrival.

The room was a bit small, but that's due to the historic nature of the building. Other than size, it was beautiful! Friendly and helpful staff. No complaints at all! Starbucks across the street was handy for a quick breakfast. Cafe Yum just up the street offered nice healthy meal options - very flavorful - (yum!)

A well located hotel in the heart of Seattle.

Rooms were ok. We did experience quite a few issues with cleanliness and wifi, but these were swiftly and satisfactorily resolved. Make sure you get a room with good wifi signal

Request a room with a city view (high floor) if possible.
