We stayed at this hotel for one night before leaving for a cruise. We tried to check in early after arriving around 1:30 but they said our rooms were not ready. They did however hold our bags for us and gave us some recommendations for local attractions and eateries. The location is not great. While it is not that far from the Space Needle it is a bit of a trek because navigating the local streets can be difficult because of how the roads are set up. It's also a pretty good walk to downtown and the waterfront but it is walkable. Check-in was a bit of a hassle; we waited in line for quite awhile. They did give us a free upgrade to a nicer room and we had a great view of the Space Needle from our room. The room was alright, the bed wasn't great but it was good enough. The free breakfast was better than most I've gotten in hotels. They had a pretty good selection and the food was good. The adjacent Holiday Inn has a nice little bar with a good beer selection too. The pool is pretty small but it was still nice to have and we did enjoy swimming in it. Overall, the hotel's not bad; it's clean and does offer a nice breakfast. I think it's probably a little more expensive than I think it should be and the location's not the best but it's still not a bad option if you're headed to Seattle.
