I stayed here for 5 nights on a business trip. Check-in was quick and easy. Room was comfortable and well-appointed. Bed was very comfortable and wi-fi was relatively fast.

My only issue was that I could hear every movement of the person in the room above me, whether he/she was walking across the floor or shutting a dresser drawer, I heard it. I know this is common in cheaper hotels like Days Inn and Super 8's, but should not be an issue at ANY Hilton property.

Breakfast was ok, the western omelettes were tasty, but hotels should NEVER serve biscuits with sausage gravy. What a horribly anti-healthy and disgusting breakfast item!!!

Went to Seattle over the Christmas holiday for a weekend getaway. Booked at the Hampton Inn Downtown because my husband and I have had great experiences staying at Hampton Inn properties. As expected, this one did not disappoint. The hotel is a short walk from the Space Needle and Seattle Center and within walking distance to downtown, albeit about a 30 minute walk. If heading downtown and you don't want to walk, you can take the bus located right out in front of the hotel. Be advised that this hotel is not located downtown.
We got a great rate, $89/night. Our king bedroom was large, clean, had a large tv and very comfortable bed. Breakfast had a great variety of foods (a hot dish, bagels/bread, fruit, yogurt, oatmeal, cereal) and something to please everyone. The lobby had 2 computers with internet access that were free to use. The hotel was very quiet in terms of city noise, no horns honking or general commotion, though we did hear footsteps and movement in the room above us but this wasn't too disruptive. The front desk staff wasn't as informed about how to navigate the city and I would have expected but we still managed to get around with no problems. Overall, great value for the money and I would definitely stay again.

The only hitch with this establishment was getting there by cab. It is in fact Queen Anne district, and that is very nice even for enjoyable uphill conditionals. The Inn is a stone's throw away from the Space Needle, which is a good point especially for first-time visitors, with the advantage of being able to hop on the once-so-futuristic monorail train and zip to the real downtown in a couple of minutes. Literally, which means the fare of $2 works out at a dollar per minute from every passenger - a nice little earner, methinks. Worth the ride, though, and views along the way, too. In the end we used it almost exclusively to make the transfers.

This Hampton is simply good and unpretentious, guests staying here being both visitors and businessmen. It is well run, and the reception desk staff could not be more helpful, including the greeter at breakfast time. It just cheered things up for all, and having the usual Hampton offering here was actually a pleasant experience. It felt good to read the paper, unrushed and sipping yet another cup of coffee.

Although the spacious room was facing the street, it was perfectly quiet day and night, with comfortable beds. Since there is no pretense at being a hotel, coin-operated washing machine is made available to guests, which is helpful. There is a very good supermarket just a few steps away (QFC) and local bus routes have stops nearby. Best to walk around a bit, though, perhaps across the road and browse the CD store with a huge choice of items (purchases were made). There are some attractively marginal cafes up the hill.

Really enjoyed staying here. Two-bedroom suite was spacious and clean and the bed was comfortable. Nice large bathroom. Front desk was helpful, so helpful that they organised a town car out to the airport and organised a tour of the Boeing factory for us. Breakfast was average, but OK and certainly was enough to keep you going until lunch. Just don't expect too much. The hotel is a few blocks from the Space Needle and a 2-minute monorail ride into downtown. I enjoyed my stay here and can highly recommend it. The free internet in the lobby is a bonus.

I stayed at this Hampton for one night while attending a business event at nearby Seattle Center. The first thing you will notice is that the property layout takes some getting used to. I had a king room on the suite side - not accessible from the lobby level. I got a very detailed explanation (from the very helpful staff!) of the layout but still got lost on my first attempt. Once you get used to it though, it does makes sense. Seems like an unfortunate side effect of fitting the property on that piece of land.

The second thing you will notice (especially if you are a business traveler) is that there are no accessible/practical electrical outlets to plug in a laptop/cell phone/etc. I had to plug in my cell phone and lay it on the floor and literally crawl under the desk and unplug a lamp to plug in my laptop. If there were any better outlets they eluded me during my exhaustive search.

The free internet worked great and the complimentary breakfast was pretty much the same you get from any other Hampton - the coffee was very good. There is also a very nice 24-hour super market one block away that was a nice place to get a late night snack.

This was not the best Hampton Inn that I have encountered but it was also far from the worst. An okay choice if you need to be close to the Seattle Center and need a reasonably priced option. But charge your cell phone first!

Found this Hampton Inn on the GPS. Walked in and inquired if they had a room. Front desk was great. Received great customer service from all hotel employees. Only complaint would be the parking garage - the spaces in the garage were very small and a very tight squeeze. I was very happy to find a space outside of the garage.
