I had prepaid 3 weeks ago at a ‘20%’ saving but checking the web site the days before I would have been charged the same price. At check-in there was no acknowledge that I was a Gold club member, I asked if an upgrade was available and was told no but they did not charge the $10 per day parking.
The hotel was not busy and they are renovating so the entrance was a mess and a number of workmen where around all the time. The room was nice enough and had been updated but the window faced another wing of the building about 25 feet away. Carpets in the halls were filthy and some wall papering was done but not for the whole floor, a bit here and a bit there.
On the first night a child was running back and forth upstairs and it was VERY loud (not sure if the parents were there or not) called the front desk and about 10 minutes later it was a lot quieter. The second bight was better but still bouts of running.
Not overly priced for close to downtown and within walking distance of most interesting spots. A few blocks (6) from the Space needle and about 20 minutes from Pike Place Market & 15 from the centre of the city. About 3 blocks from free bus service in the downtown area but only used it to go to the football game.
I noticed that a few rooms had newspaper delivered to their door in the morning but not all. This place has to have the sloooooowest elevators (2). After waiting a few minutes I actually timed it and it was another 4.5 minutes for one to arrive. On another occasion someone said they waited 15 minutes for it to show.
They have a limited room service menu, a 2 dollar delivery fee, an 18% gratuity change, plus leave space on the bill for a tip.
Would I stay again, maybe, but would check out the HI Express right behind, at least you get breakfast.
