Holiday Inn Express Seattle City Center
Ranked #66 of 104 Hotels in Seattle
Reviewed August 23, 2006

All I really want out of a hotel room is a comfortable bed and a hot shower -- and this place could not even provide those two things consistently.

Our non-smoking request was ignored and when I refused to take the "Marlboro Factory" suite they tried to give us, they downgraded us to a queen/sofabed room, promising to move us. That never happened. The room did not come with a safe and they were unable to provide a security box for me ("we can't find the keys"). There was no hot water one morning. The remote didn't work. The soda machines were broken. I called the front desk twice during a 3-night stay and was told someone would get back to me. No one ever did.

Petty complaints? Yeah, some are. But when they accumulate on a daily basis, something is wrong with the hotel. Management seems unfamiliar with the phrase "the devil is in the details." (By the way, the general manager is really good at ignoring complaints and phone calls. I'm *still* waiting.)

We stayed 2 nights 4 days apart. The first room was great-alot for the money. The second room was kinda gross. The bathtub drain was clogged with hair and there were numerous stains on the carpet. Good views of the space needle in both rooms. Easy walk to the free bus line. Desk service is hit or miss- I advise you call your own taxi. There was a seafair parade in the area with street closures-we called prior to arrival to ask which streets were closed and the front desk had no clue. He advised we try to park on the street somewhere and walk. We made it to the parking lot by taking back streets and asking cops. I like Holiday Inn Express-we had the queen mini suite gov. rate of $124. good deal.
