This hotel is used by a number of my collegues, who visit a local business, and opinion is very mixed. It is convenient for businesses in that area, and easy to get to (I took the Link rail from SeaTac Airport, the monorail to the Space needle and then walked down the hill).
The hotel is clearly not new, and is a little long in the tooth, especially in the rooms. Reception was helpful and pleasant. A small shop in the typical Hilton tradition serves a slightly odd variety of goods, from Seattle caps to Spaghetti. A complimentary buffett is served in the restaurant, which is good simple food, but certainly nothing to write home about. There is also complimentary beer served on tap, and not the generic nasty American lagers, there were some interesting local brews available.
The room itself is large, with a living room, including sofas and a flatscreen TV (locked to the on-demand entertainment system). The living room is an internal room - without any windows to the outside world. A kitchenette area has everything needed to cook basic food, popcorn is provided in the room! The bathroom has a small bath, that doesnt hold enough water to cover a body. The bedroom was actually a double, a king sized room was not available. I found the bed a little too firm, and not fantastically comfortable. A large airconditioning system sat in the corner and bumped loudly into life throughout the night, which was not pleasant. A second TV sits in this room also.
The room felt tired, and in need of a refit. There were some plumbing issues in the kitchenette and bathroom, taps leaked all over the worksurfaces and the carpets looked worn.
All in all, not a terrible stay, but for the price, I would expect a little higher quality.
