Rooms were nice, staff were friendly. Downtown location was very convenient. We stayed 3 nights prior to our Holland America Cruise Tour. We enjoyed a variety of ethnic restaurants which were close by.

The reason my friends and I booked here for two days was the price, free parking and free wifi as well as breakfast being included. We had booked the cheapest room possible that had two beds and we were pleasantly surprised by how big it was. It had two queens and also came with a mini fridge and microwave. Although we did not have use for the two appliances, it would have been handy had we stayed for a few more days. The breakfast was pretty good for continental, it came with make your own waffle iron. Which turned out pretty good, it had boiled eggs, hot porridge, fruit, cereal and (strange but good) taquitos. The only thing is that the breakfast hours were a little short (6:30-9:30). They had this lemonade stand next to the elevators that was always full and free! So nice after walking about and coming back to that. And even though they had no restaurant, the coffee and hot water with tea and hot chocolate were self-served 24/7 which was really nice. The best part however was when I went to check out and go to the quick shuttle. I came down and requested a taxi, I went and waited outside and then a gentleman came outside and told me he could drive me. The hotel has a car service that will take you the airport/quick shuttle/cruise ship dock. It was really awesome! When the driver dropped me off and helped me with my bags, I tried to tip him and he refused. As I too work in the hospitality industry this is a huge thing for me! Someone that actually does his job because he cares! Bravo La Quinta! Bravo!!

While it's not the newest hotel, this La Quinta is well located near the Space Needle and museums, clean, reasonably priced and has a free hot breakfast. Parking is a bit dicey due to street restrictions and a tiny lot on hotel property. Staff were efficient. It would be better if the free breakfast options included more protein, like eggs, but that's a quibble as the waffles and fruit were fine.

This is an excellent location for travelers visiting the downtown Seattle area. You are close to many of the "go to" locations in Seattle. This includes the Space Needle and Pike Place Market. It is well kept and the staff is very forthcoming and friendly. We stayed there prior to leaving on a cruise and they were very helpful in arranging transportation to the port on the day of the cruise. Try to get a room on the street side of the hotel. The back side looks directly into an open office building.

Good value for a downtown location. The exterior is, to put it charitably, drab, and the room was tired (the air conditioner being marginally effective). The neighborhood is convenient but could hardly be called attractive. BUT, you can get anywhere from there easily without a car, the room was spotlessly clean, and the waitstaff is, without exception, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. It is a very serviceable base for visiting Seattle.
