“Great Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

Please hold your judgement until you get inside - the rooms are clean and pretty, and the lobby is beautiful. Free breakfast in the morning gets crowded when the hotel is full - which is to be expected - but there's a lot to choose from. The staff is friendly, and you can't beat free parking in downtown Seattle! Very close to the Space Needle. IF you're on an upper floor and on the right side of the building, you might have a view of it.

Stayed two nights and really enjoyed ourselves. Walked to Space Needle and restaurants nearby. Enjoyed the free breakfasts and ample seating. Room layout was a bit odd and view was horrid; figured it was because I booked on Priceline. I would stay again!

The outside of this hotel certainly doesn't do the overall hotel any favors. Once you get past the bland outside, you'll be pleasantly surprised by the inside. The staff is friendly, the breakfast is sufficient, and the rooms are very updated, spacious, and nice. The free parking is great too! I would recommend this place.

Smaller hotel that has been updated to a modern design inside. Location was perfect for walking access to everything downtown. Friendly and informative staff. Didn't eat the breakfast, just got delicious coffee. Looked like your typical con breakfast. No charge on parking which is a huge savings! I would definitely stay there again.

Hotel is a little old from the outside but very beautiful and updated on the inside. The staff is very friendly and very helpful. They could use a few more people for the breakfast service. It seemed that they ran out of food each day we were there. We stayed in a King suite that was beautiful. We had a view of the Space Needle from the room. Very close walking distance to the Space Needle and the Duck Tours. They also have complimentary parking which was a great savings.

We stayed in this hotel for a few days before our Alaskian cruise. It is an older hotel downtown, but is upkept beautifully. The location was great, as both the Space Needle and the waterfront were within walking distance. We had a room with a balcony from which we had a view of downtown and the Space Needle. Absolutely no complaints! We enjoyed the friendly staff and the nice HOT breakfast each morning. I would say this hotel is definately on the upscale side of most Laquintas. By the way, book EARLY (6 months ahead) and you can get a much better rate, we paid $125
