I stayed here for a week with my girlfriend. The hotel is new and the room was spacious with an extremely comfortable bed as well as a safe, coffee machine, large tv with dvd player (can rent films from the front desk) and a microwave. No bath (not sure we would have used one anyway) but a walk-in shower instead.
All the staff here were extremely friendly and helpful. Location wise, it is slightly out of downtown - about a 5 minute walk to the monorail at the space needle or about a 3-4 minute walk to the bus stop to go into downtown. There are also some restaurants on Mercer street that are only about 5 minutes walk away. We did hire a car for a day and parking overnight at the hotel was free.
One or two minor niggles - there was no bar which would have been nice but the hotel does provide coffee and fairy cakes (for free) in the lobby and also has a small shop that sells fruit / pastries / soft drinks etc. Also, there was some noise from the street when we first arrived but when we mentioned it to the front desk they had no problem with moving us to a room at the side of the hotel where we couldn't hear the cars.
Other than that, the hotel also has a swimming pool / gym and free wifi. We would definately stay here again if we come back to Seattle and would not hesitate to recomend it.
