So hotels are sometimes just hotels. BUT when we stayed here on our 6 day Washington ---> Oregon extravaganza trip, the hubster and I kept noticing the special touches that seem to set this hotel apart from other hotels. So here they are (in no particular order):
1. They have super cute yellow bikes that you can borrow for free.
2. They have free parking (AND free wifi).
3. They have coffee and cupcakes in the lobby in the afternoon.
4. There is a giant yellow umbrella in your room for you to use (because it's rainy in Seattle. Except not during our trip. Even though I bought rain boots just for this trip. Come on weather.com.)
5. They have a microwave (AND microwaveable popcorn) in your room.
6. Speaking of the room, there was this truly adorable chandelier wall paper on one of the wall. Kinda cheered things up a bit.
7. Speaking of cheeriness, the hotel was nicely designed - kind modern, but... Well, cheery.
8. Other stuff: Keurig in the room (I know everyone does this, but I like it, ok?), fridge, safe
9. Oh, and check-out was at 12! And you don't even have to ask for late checkout. It's just later.
10. Location was great. We walked to Chihuly. We walked to EMP. We walked to the needle. We walked to Toulouse Petit. And! They had a shuttle! Which we didn't use. But they said they could take you places if you want.
Basically: the price was right but the details were great. Thanks for a great stay!
