The location is decent if you don't mind a bit of a walk to get to Pike Place or downtown (about 10 blocks). We had family of five (3 kids 10,8,5) and inlaws. The kids didn't love the walk, but I enjoy it. There was outside construction, but didn't affect us on weekend stay. It was daunting driving up with all the scaffolding blocking the entrance - but no big deal. The front staff was very friendly and attentive, no wait. The valet is pricey $30ish. The front desk mentioned $12 closeby park yourself - but it was too late at that point as we already had the valet going. The hotel lobby has been updated and is modern looking. We checked in early, noon-ish and they had rooms ready to give us. He gave us corner rooms which are 'bigger', I'm not sure if this is because I am Gold elite. I would have liked high floor as requested, but can't complain since they let us in so early.
Room - Nice and modern. Has fridge. There were no sheets/extra pillows in room for sofa bed, but I called down and they delivered them in about 2 minutes flat - seriously! I always request extra towels and extra feather pillows in my room request - but this never seems to happen. I'm sure I can call down, I just wonder if they ever follow your request? Anyway, again we got checked in early, so who knows if that would have been taken care of.
Pool - this was small, but wasn't too cold and the kids enoy it regardless. about 3ft8" to 4ft"4 deep.
Elevators - safety function, as they require you to insert your key.
My only main complaint - and to me this is a biggie - is no free coffee in the lobby. The room coffee is always poor and I don't care to use the Bistro. I guess being in Starbucks capital, it would at least be nice to offer this as a perk for people staying at the hotel - or even 1 free cup to Gold members. Sorry, I really think that is to be expected.
Again the front desk was great in suggesting Planet Java for breakfast. This was great breakfast place. Kids loved it, they offer milkshakes all day.
We would stay here again -if I could convince my kids to enjoy the walking!
