“Good Location, Modern Decor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2011

We booked Hotel Five since it was the only hotel available and we're glad we did! It's in a great location, close to Downtown, the many restaurants of Belltown, and the Waterfront. In regards to people saying it's a sketchy area, I think that it is more up and coming than a bad area. We felt safe even when walking home at night (although I'd never recommend walking alone in any city at night). The decor of the hotel is very modern. The lobby was large and inviting and free coffee and mini cupcakes were out often for guests. We stayed in two different rooms since we went to San Juan for a night in between (and they happily held our luggage for us for the night). The first room was a 4th floor queen room right outside the monorail, which is literally the quietest form of transportation. You couldn't even tell when it went by! The second room was a king room on the 5th floor.

Pros: Keurig coffee maker with choice of coffee, decaf, or tea, Rain shower, Free Wifi, friendly front desk, great location, clean rooms, interesting decor

Cons: Slow Wifi (especially in my 5th floor room), Safe in 3rd floor room didn't work, I wasn't a fan of their highly fragranced shower products, absolutely no spot to hang towels in my 5th floor bathroom, painting over bed was missing in my 5th floor room, itchy comforter, limited TV stations

I think they might still be finishing their renovations, which is was the painting was missing, but both rooms I stayed in were clean and comfortable. We had both rooms facing the monorail & 5th ave but it looked like if you stay in the other hallway, you might have views of the space needle! I definitely recommend this hotel if you're looking to explore Seattle.

Cool and Trendy rooms. Stayed for three days after my cruise. The front desk service was pleasant and helpful. On drawback though was the rooms not being soundproof, outsige nioses from the corridors and other rooms were quite audiable.

We spent four nights at the Hotel Five, newly renovated with funky brightly coloured decor. Its location isn't right in the centre of downtown but still only about 10 minutes walk away and felt safe. The room was clean and of a good size, had free internet, a coffee maker, a super comfortable bed and fantastic shower, in fact the rainhead's pressure was perhaps a little too vigorous! We got a great deal through the hotel when we booked as they were offering a third night free so it made the stay good value overall. It also included $20 breakfast vouchers for two each morning at their inhouse cafe, where the staff were friendly and the breakfast very good. I used their gym on a couple of occasions which was small but clean. My only criticism would be that the check-in person could have been a little more welcoming and friendly, he wasn't rude but just a little aloof and a smile would have gone a long way.

Hotel Five exceeded my expectations. I stayed with my sisters in the executive suite on the fifth floor which had a sleek and modern style in the renovated part of the hotel. It was clean, comfortable and the staff was incredibly hospitable. Thank you to Julia, the manager who ensured we had a wonderful stay and upgraded our room. I stayed here 2 years ago when it was the ramada, had an unpleasant experience, did not want to come back and Julia convinced me to try Hotel Five. It is so modern and inviting now. I recommend Hotel Five, especially the renovated floors (4th and 5th).

Loved the hotel. Not a basic hotel from a national chain. Front desk were very helpful in receiving some packages and also giving us ideas of where to go for dinner and to listen to music. Complimentary coffee and cookies/muffins were also a plus. Room was clean and colorful!!!

Room Tip: Color me to sleep

We visited our son who was working in South Lake Union for the summer and needed a hotel close to everything (in walking distance!) that was reasonable in price. Hotel Five was a great solution-the location is fantastic, towels were thicker than usual, beds were comfy. The double queen room was a little small for three people but we made do. We were on the fourth floor facing a parking lot and heard no outside noises. We had a visitor, also from out of town, who needed driving directions to his hotel in the suburbs after joining us for dinner one night. The hotel clerks did a Google map search and printed out maps for him to use-I thought that was super nice!

I loved having free WiFi, so many places charge you now so this was great. The restaurant offered an excdellent breakfast and not just a continental. The rooms are fun, brand new with modern, colorful design; vibrant and dramatic reds, black and yellow. The roomy bathroom has huge walk in shower and beautiful glass sink; neat sliding door. Wood floors add to the clean feeling as do the new linens. I enjoyed a very comfortable sleep. My room was on the 5th floor so I was eye to eye with the monorail; which did not give disturbing sound as one might expect; made a fun Seattle kind of stay . I'd definately recommend to others and will stay there again asap.

Room Tip: ask for spaceneedle view if you want it or city view for great people watching and monorail
