“Nice Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

Very nice stay. Check-in was a breeze, front desk personal were friendly. Got our free hotel parking tag, drove around to parking, took the elevator and were in our room within a few minutes of arriving.
The room had a balcony with a view of tall buildings downtown. The bed had pillow top mattress and was very comfortable. There was a microwave, mini refrigerator, coffee maker and flat screen TV with remote control.
The free breakfast was nice. A lot of choices, eggs (scrambled), sausage, dry cereal, oatmeal, fruit, and juice with make-your-own-waffles.
A bus stop is only a block away for a short ride to Pike Place. Pike place is with a 15-17 minute walk, just over a half mile. You can walk to the Space Needle in less than 15 minutes.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the Space Needle (more interesting than the tall downtown buildings)

La Quinta was located close to the Space Needle and Seattle Center so once you park your car just walk. Yes, spots are small, but there is a main level of parking where our large SUV fit and then a lower level for additional parking. The lobby is extremely welcoming. There is a large fish tank that our kids liked as well as ultra modern gas fireplace features. In addition there is a large open business center for guests to use. The room was clean and tastefully decorated. There was plenty of room for 2 adults and 2 children in our room with two queen beds. We were in room 510 and loved having neighbors on only one side of us. This was a quiet side of the building and away from the elevator, a request that we had submitted and was honored. I am not one to usually comment on the bath products, but the Rusk shampoo/conditioner/lotion smell wonderfully. Breakfast is busy but things will be replenished upon asking. The waffle maker was a hit with our family in addition to the lemonade and cookies available in the lobby.

Room Tip: I am a light sleeper, but the back side of the building had less car traffic. I also use a sound ma...

We ended up here by another chains 800 reservation center putting us 8 miles from downtown as we had requested. We were a large group needing 4 rooms and discovered the error 1 week before our cruise. We searched high and low begging for rooms with no success. This hotel kept popping up on travel booking websites so my wife called it directly. She got a clerk who was busy and took our info and called back in 15 minutes as promised. We got a better rate than the websites were offering. On our arrival we asked for the same clerk to thank her for all her help. She couldn't have been nicer or more helpful with local info in person. Our 4 rooms were all on the same floor, clean, and very nice. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. It's walking distance to downtown, Space Needle, Museums, and the Wharf. Car service was good getting us from the airport and to our cruise. Not so great getting us picked up and to another hotel as arranged after the cruise.

This hotel is VERY clean and modern. I felt very comfortable at this hotel in downtown Seattle.

The rooms, bathrooms, and common areas are very nice! The fish tank in the lobby is beautiful and calming. Breakfast is good and the desk service is very accommodating.

Be prepared, parking is very limited and tight. Practice your backing in parking skills prior to arrival!

Only one thing kept this property from 5 stars - After our first night we spent the day at Mount Rainier, thus were gone all day long. When we returned, the room was just as we left it. A quick inquiry at the desk revealed that for some reason our room was left off the housekeeping list that day.We were given clean towels at the desk and were assured it wouldn't happen again. They were correct. Over the next 3 days, we had no complaints at all.

Wish there was a nice heated pool and spa. :)

If you choose to stay anywhere in Downtown Seattle, you will not be disappointed in the La Quinta Downtown.

We wanted a hotel downtown, without paying some of the higher prices. This hotel has free parking and a free breakfast, which added to it's value for us. We could walk to many of the downtown sights easily. The room was large enough that, even with 4 adults, we never felt crowded. The breakfast was good, boiled eggs, waffles, juice, etc- just fine for us. The staff was very professional and I would definitely stay here again.

My husband and I had a king room for only one night before leaving on an Alaskan cruise, and La Quinta Downtown was perfect for everything we needed. A 10-minute walk to the Space Needle, walkable distance to Pike Place Market, steps from bus stops that will take you anywhere you want, and the front desk was more than helpful when it came to arranging cab transport to the cruise dock. This place had the best shower heads I think I've ever seen, and the whole place has been renovated top to bottom. Breakfast was also really impressive- Pretty much anything you may have been craving!

When I heard my travel department booked me at a La Quinta I was concerned but the place was great! The outside doesn't look like much but the inside is very nice. I am a business traveler and have stayed all over the country. I actually texted my husband pictures of the room. It was a very spacious suite with a separate bedroom. Two really cool features- a mini fan in the bedroom and a double shower head!! The location is within walking distance of everything you want to do and see. I left too early to enjoy the breakfast but heard it was good!
