I'm from a 1 stoplight town, and had to spend a month here in Seattle due to a family member having a medical emergency. It was an incredibly stressful time, and I had no idea how to drive in this town, or where to stay when I got here.
The hospital gave me a list of recommended hotels that had hospital discounts. I choose the Nexus originally because, not only did it have a great discounted price, but also free shuttle service and complimentary breakfast in the morning. After I got here I found out it also had complimentary laundry and a small, but a rather nice gym.
The rooms were quite nice, with microwaves coffeepot, and a small fridge. I also heard from other people staying there that there were also rooms with full kitchens. I had the small fridge -- which was very useful for my extended stay.
The breakfast changed daily, and was not your usual bagels and donuts. We had everything from biscuits and gravy, to bacon and eggs. And bagels, danishes, waffles, juices, coffee and milk and cereal were always part of the spread.
But what sold me on the place was the people. They have some of the kindest people on Earth working for them. And it's a tough job, dealing with people struggling with someone they love in the hospital. They were always courteous, particularly the drivers, who would give you a shoulder to cry on, if you needed it.
I'm going home tomorrow. Yay! But I intend to stay here again soon. For a non-medical related trip, to see the sights. And I would recommend this place to anyone.
