This hotel is within walking distance of the Space Needle and the Chihuly Glass Exhibit. It is a clean, comfortable hotel, the breakfast area is well-maintained, and the staff is quite helpful. Anissa, an assistant manager, I believe, sat with us one morning to chat and ask our impressions of a recent bus tour and our stay at the hotel - a very nice gesture. After spending 3 nights here, I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for accommodations near the Space Needle.

I stayed at the Hampton Inn and Suites in Seattle downtown recently and found that it was an amazing experience. Right from the Front Desk staff who right from Check in till Check out made me feel very welcome and were so very helpful. The breakfast workers were always keeping the area stocked and clean and would come around and ask how we were, how was breakfast and if they could help in any way. This hotel has done an excellent job in training and keeping there staff happy. Will definitely be back!

Our family of four stayed here after reading the reviews on the location. I called ahead and inquired about transportation since we'd be arriving by air and wouldn't have a car. The hotel hooked us up with a car service, which took us directly to the hotel for $40. You can also arrive by light rail/monorail/walk 4 blocks, but the car seemed easier.
Check-in was very busy, but the two handling it were very prompt and courteous. I was happy when I heard we'd be on a higher floor (4th) because I had read that you didn't want street level. Well, three is street level here, so four wasn't much better. Overall, the traffic wasn't an issue.
We were in a suite and the bedroom and bathroom were fine. The bed was super comfy. We had planned for the kids to sleep on the pull out couch in the sitting room. The only problem with that was the lack of room-darkening shades in that room. We had a small balcony and the door was only covered with mini-blinds, allowing much light to stream through in the morning. We kept the same sleeping arrangement, but it was never fully dark and the sun does come up early.
Breakfast was good. Crowded, but we always got a seat. Nice offerings of hot and cold items.
Excellent pizza right across the street and a full grocery store in the same building as the pizza. Very convenient.
Location was everything! Short walk to Seattle Center and the Space Needle. If you want to quickly reach the Pike Steeet Market, take the monorail. You'll end up about 4 blocks from it.
I believe the man at the front desk's name was Ed. He was most helpful. He gave me advice and directions on numerous occasions.

Great friendly staff, wonderful "free" breakfast and very good internet access. The hotel is very close to the Space Needle complex; can be accessed from airport using the light rail plus monorail and a short walk.

I'm a big fan of this brand but the construction of this hotel seemed to be done "on the cheap".

The bathtub made noises when you stood in it for a shower like it was going to crack, and the soundproofing wasn't up to the standard of other hotels in chain. I don't know if it was because we had a hotel full of very noisy, inconsiderate people but the noise from the hallway (we were on the 4th floor) was very disturbing and didn't allow for peaceful sleep. Also the noise from the room above and either side was a problem.

Apart from the noise issues though our experience wasn't too bad here. We stayed 3 nights, the reception staff was helpful and friendly and the location was very good for our first trip to Seattle. There are some very nice local restaurants withing walking distance and buses right past the front door.

I would stay here again but would request a room on the top floor at the very end of the corridor.

Room Tip: Don't accept a room on the 1st floor between reception and the elevators because everyone has to...

Okay, so maybe the Hampton isn't swank. But the staff are always welcoming and the rooms are always clean and comfy (at least mine are).

And it's nice to have a large and talented grocery store a block or so away.

But the real selling point is proximity to the EMP and Science Fiction Museum.
That's why I always choose the Hampton over the Tyrell Corporation penthouse.

Besides, at the Hampton I never worry who's using the elevator at night.

Paid about $300 for a king suite. It was on the ground floor, a long long walk down many winding halls and an elevator ride from the lobby. Don't open the curtains, they look right onto the parking lot and garage door and dumpster bay. The dumpster truck came before 8 am on Saturday morning, and came back later and noisily dumped about a half dozen dumpster loads, off and on up to about 10 am. This would be heard at all the rooms facing the middle. The room above me had noisy people who stomped around which was very audible in my room, so there is poor sound insulation. The only AC is in the bedroom so the large living room and kitchen area was hot and stuffy in the evening, and the AC in the bedroom was struggling to cool down after a hot day. The hotel was packed for multiple events and the narrow hallways were full of people going back and forth. And the stomping noise upstairs continues nonstop, very audible.
