If you're looking for a great location that is quiet yet close enough to the action (1mile) of downtown Seattle, then this is it. Staff is friendly, the food is good, the exercise room is generously outfitted and the laundry area has 2 washers & dryers. We didn't have a car so can't speak to the underground parking. Within walking distance of the hotel is a Safeway grocery, several bars/restaurants, the Space Needle, the waterfront, ferries and downtown Seattle. We were out walking in the evenings and felt very safe at all times. Having booked online and not knowing anything about Seattle, we were pleasantly surprised by the location. The hotel is in the Lower Queen Ann area which is mostly residential, so quiet at night. Directly across the street, by way of a walking overpass, is Elliot Bay and park. Our recommendation if you're traveling with a lot of tech. toys is to bring along a surge protector or a 6 outlet plug or extension cord simply because it's an older hotel and we found ourselves using every outlet in the room for our wall chargers,etc. We managed but from now on will travel with an inexpensive surge protector. If you don't have a car, transportation is very easy in Seattle. We took the Light Link train from the airport to downtown, then hailed a cab to take us to the hotel. We visited the Chittendon Locks and took a bus to get there. The bus drivers are very friendly and helpful, esp. if you tell them you're visiting the city. There are cabs everywhere, some flat rate, and others my the mile, so for us we didn't miss a car at all. If you don't mind walking you can see just about anything Seattle has to offer. Overall we had a great experience, made even better by the hotel, its staff and its location. We will be back!
