“Great Location, Helpful Staff, Nice Rooms”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

We visited this hotel before and after our Alaska cruise. We stayed two days before and one day after. The hotel is in a great location. It's perfect for exploring downtown Seattle. Its walking distance to Pike's Place, the Waterfront, Light Rail, the Ferries, the monorail to Seattle Center and numerous other places. It is also very convenient to both Cruise Pier's. Pier 91 (the furthest) is only about a $15 cab ride.

The staff was also very helpful. The front desk offered directions, maps and recommendations that were right on. They also recognized us when we came back and were able to let us check in early, which was welcome after our cruise.

The rooms are also very nice. With a few upgrades here and there, this hotel could have easily been one of the higher end Marriott properties. As it is, its a great bargain in a great location. I highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a high floor facing 2nd Street or Cherry Street. Some of the rooms on the back si...

Arrived at midnight to stay over in Seattle before taking the ferry to Victoria the next day. Room was clean and quiet although the HVAC unit had a loud rattle and we turned it off. Everyone was accommodating - they held out bags all day until we came back to retrieve and board the ferry in the late afternoon, Would stay here again.

I had a great room with a fantastic harbor view. Bistro lounge closes a bit early for this New Yorker but the location was near everything...not a bad walk to waterfront area and farmers market.


The only downside for me: no room service and the uphill climb to county office buildings!!

Stayed here on a business trip. The location is the best thing about this place. Right next to the light rail and a few blocks from the Seahawks and Mariners stadiums. The building is very beautiful and an antique. Be aware that the windows are old as well, so it can be noisy at night. Hopefully they at least replace the windows. The city view is fantastic, the bay view, not so much. Staff was great. For breakfast, there is a Seattle's Best literally across the street from the hotel, you can get some coffee and something to eat for a lot less than what the Courtyard charges. Plenty of restaurants around the area, specially on the waterfront. Would definitely return here.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are larger and has more windows for the light to come in. City view is the best.

My traveling partner and I had got off a 10pm flight, needless to say we were exhausted. We had booked this hotel so we could wake up downtown to squeeze in some shopping. Our plan worked! We took the light rail from Seatac to Pioneer Square (good thing it runs until midnight!) and the hotel was 1.5 blks from the station. I saw posts that this area is perhaps gritty at night? I didn't pick up on that but then again I am an urban dweller. Convenient! We were starved & the front desk helped us order pizza delivery at midnight. The beds were very comfortable, up there with 5-star beds, and the rooms very clean, & even professional hair products! I have not stayed with Marriott in a very long time, & now after the renovations, they have stepped up their game! The staff is super friendly and accomodating. I will be back!

We recently stayed here after our Alakan cruise. Very nice hotel in a renovated old building. Rooms are very clean & modern. A silly thing, but I really liked that they had a guide on the TV (like a directv guide). Rooms are pretty spacious too & the beds are very comfortable. only bad thing is no safe in the room, but front desk has safety deposit boxes.

The hotel is well located, right on the edge of Pioneer Square & about a 10 minute walk to Pikes Market. The free (from 6am to 7pm) public transportation is right behind the hotel & from there it is a 5minute ride to the Space Needle & Seattle Center.

Only bad thing is that it is located in basically a business distric, so everything closes early around there. We spent almost an hour trying to find a Starbucks (which there is one on every corner) that was open past 7pm, lol.

The first skyscraper in Seatlle is the home of this renovated hotel. I called ahead of time to get an upgrade since I am a Platinum member and was assured of an upgrade however upon getting to my room it was not an upgrade, just a very small room which did have a nice view. Parking is $28 a night with the valet. The staff is helpful. The great thing about this hotel is location. You can walk to Pike Market and Pioneer Square.
