The Holiday Inn Express in Seattle is pretty much what you'd expect for the money, but there are a few things I would have liked to have known before booking it.
The wash basin is in the bedroom - not a major issue, but because of this the bathroom is really small, and there isn't anywhere to put your belongings, no basin means no handy shelf, and as the bath is moulded up the wall there's very little space here either.
There are no proper curtains! The windows are dressed with a sheer curtain and curtain panels on either side, the panels don't move, so if you'd like an afternoon nap, or a long lie-in it's going to be difficult as you can't block out the light.
Aurora Avenue N has a barrier all along the centre of it so you have to cross the street at the junction south of the hotel (Denny Way), no big deal, unless you're really tired from lots of walking and you can see your hotel but just have to walk that little bit further to get to it.
As I said it's nothing major, but just a couple of things I'd like to have known.
