My wife and I spent one night in Seattle last week as a mini getaway. Depending on what you need to do/see this hotel will probably suit you well. I primarily stay in IHG properties due to the Priority Club program and that was my main reason for staying here. Having said that it is close to the Space Needle, shops, restaurants and I-5 interchanges. The front desk staff was quite friendly and they upgraded us to a suite on the west side of the hotel. Try to get this side as it will give you a great view of the needle especially in the evening. The bathroom was revently upgraded with a large jacuzzi tub and new tiling. The rrom also offered a fridge and microwave. Parking was pretty full while we there but we found a spot and for $10 it's a good deal. Breakfast was typical HIE fare.
Aside from the bathroom the room seemed a bit tired. The furnishings and decor are older. I'm not sure if it was just our room but the layout was not to my liking either. The bed is too close to the wall, the vanity is in the main sleeping area and there was no desk, just a round table. As we were there for a short pleasure stay it wasn't a big deal but it would not be great for business. One other minor irritant is the internet access. We could connect just fine but every time out iPads pwered down we would lose the connection and have to re-enter the password.
Despite all of this we will probably stay here again on our next rip. The location, price and Priority Club points opportunities more than make up for the shortcomings.
