La Quinta Inn & Suites Seattle Downtown
Ranked #45 of 104 Hotels in Seattle
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 26, 2012

Pulling up to the hotel it looked a little plain, but don't judge a book by its cover. The inside was very nice! The lobby was well appointed and the front desk staff was very friendly. Check-in was quick and we were on our way to our room in no time. There was free parking that is under the building and a few spots around the front door area. We never had a problem finding a spot.

Our room was clean and roomy. We had a double room with two queen beds. The linens were fine and the towels seemed new. Our room also had a table with two chairs, flat screen TV, microwave, refrig, and coffee maker. We were in a corner room and faced the building next door. You can see the Space Needle from the parking lot in front of the hotel, and some of the rooms on the front of the hotel probably get a view of it.

The bathroom was large with the toilet and shower in their own room and the sink just outside of it, but around a wall so it wasn't open to the rest of the room. The water pressure was good from the double shower head.

We were there for three nights and had breakfast there each morning. There are waffles (yum!), pancakes (eh), and something else hot (biscuits and gravy two of the days, breakfast burrito one day). There's also bread, muffins, hard boiled eggs, cereal, and oatmeal. They also have cookies for you in the lobby at night. There's also a Whole Foods about a block away for picking up some supplies or a quick dinner.

This hotel really isn't within easy walking distance of the waterfront attractions of downtown. We drove our car to the waterfront and parked in a garage there. From there we walked to Pioneer Square, then back up to Pike Place Market. We parked some where in the middle of those two. I think it was around $25 for just over 6 hours of parking.

We had a great time in Seattle, beautiful weather and pretty much everyone we interacted in the city was very friendly. We would definitely stay here again!

This place was clean. The bedding was white and fluffy. Room was service everyday with clean towel. Breakfast was hard boil eggs, coffee, juice, milk, toast, waffle, oat meal, biscuit & gravy. You can bring breakfast to the room and they will come and clean it up. Free parking. Bathroom was updated with nice shower head. AC was up to par. For the price, I enjoy my stay.

....of relocating to the city, including housing & job searches and the joys of parking and reparking a glorious 16 ' moving van while endeavoring to complete our task in the few days we had! We slept well and ate well for breakfast based out of the LaQuinta, and were able to easily navigate using the street map provided by helpful and friendly desk clerks.

If you don't care about having internet access, this hotel is a good buy in a good location; other than someone else's dental floss left on the bathroom floor, it was a good lower-end-of-the-budget hotel with good access to the downtown.

If internet access is important to you, however, don't give this place a second thought. There were two major problems. One, the actual access is awful--slow, unresponsive, frequently just not available.

The second was even worse--in order to get the access, you have to log on to some third party provider and they insert banner ads into and across the top of your browser that occasionally hijacked where I wanted to go and instead directed me to sites I didn't want. I ended using my iPhone instead for the weekend instead of my laptop, but I wasn't able to work on my business page as a result. As a result, I found the advertised "free wifi" to be really misleading--free because they technically charge you, but unusable unless you were willing to give this third party provider control of your browser.

I am a Washington resident who was called for federal jury duty in Seattle. Although I only had to pay a government rate, my LaQuinta Elite status got me an upgrade to a clean, well appointed room.
Staff was helpful at checkin and allowed me to park through the morning after I had formally checked out early to begin the jury selection process.
All spaces, public and private that I saw were clean and refurbished.
Best bet for an interesting meal is a block and a half walk to Whole Foods deli.
