I carefully researched Seattle hotels for a five day road trip that my son & I took Seattle. Hotel 5 looked to be a trendy, clean hotel in a great location at a super price. It completely delivered and we will definitely be back.
We (my 14 y.o. son & I) chose to stay in a double queen with Space Needle view room. By booking through the hotel's website we were able to take advantage of a special rate of $135/night (+ taxes) + $25 restaurant credit, better than any other deal I could find on any other travel site. The room was very clean and exactly as pictured on their website. The pillows and towels were fluffy, designer toiletries supplied and a fully stocked Kuerig machine provided (along with 2 bottles of water daily). The room also had the expected amenties of a flat-screen tv, in-room safe, umbrella, chair with reading lamp, etc. All was clean and in good repair. I found the bed very comfortable.
The lobby was set up nicely with plenty of seating, a large flat-screen tv, a computer with free internet access, and a Starbuck supplied coffee machine. Cupcakes were put out daily. I was hoping for a variety of flavours but qucikly clued in that pineapple was the theme of the hotel ;) The staff was very firendly. We ate at the restaurant once. It was servicable, but not really our style - the service was friendly but on the slow side.
The outside of the hotel was being painted during our visit, therefore there was scaffolding around the building; it was a bit awkward but not much of an incovenience. As a great surprise, we learned upon check-out that the hotel had waived our on-site parking fees (a great deal at $15/day) to compensate for the upheaval to the exterior of the building. This was done unsolicited by us - it was a class move by the hotel that I very much appreciated!
The hotel is perfectly situated, a five minute walk to the Space Needle, EMP, Museum, Monorail and Seattle Center, ten minute walk the other direction got us to the center of Pike Place market and the shopping area. We walked down to 2nd Avenue and found a couple of trendy eateries that we enoyed, again a five minute walk from the hotel. As a single woman with a teen, I felt very safe here and that is very important to me.
I would 100% unreservedly recommend this hotel and intend to return as soon as we can :)
