“Very nice room”
Reviewed November 4, 2010

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. Nice, clean, spacious room. Kitchenette, fridge, microwave. Very comfortable bed and pillows. Quiet. Friendly staff. Restaurant next door at Holiday Inn Express was very good. We used taxis to get around as there were 4 of us to split cost and my friends were not walkers. To walk to Pike Place Market would probably take about 15 minutes.

The hotel is all-right, location is pretty good, we could walk everywhere and we didn´t pay too much.
you get what you pay for, not much else. and the next time we travel to Seattle we will probably choose a better hotel.
i guess this hotel is OK for the price you pay, and if you don´t stay much inside.

Thank you very much for your review. We are expecting to begin an extensive rennovation for our hotel. We will be changing the decor of the rooms that will encompass things such as new furniture, carpet, wall vinyl and most importantly HD flat screen televisions. We hope that when you come back to Seattle, you will stay with us and enjoy all the changes ahead. I am not sure if you visited our restaurant (the Emerald Grill) but, it also is going to have a major rennovation.

This hotel is suitable. We stayed on the executive floor during our stay. There was free wifi which was a nice bonus. There are no views from any of the rooms. For a view of the space needle you will need to check into the holiday inn express next door. The parking garage is the tightest parking garage I have even been in. When I was entering. another car was exiting and thee had to backup a full level before we could pass each other. On the bright side, it only cost $10. The room was spacious and included a kitchenette with a microwave and sink. The executive lounge had 2 computers with internet access, free breakfast and evening drinks. If travelling back to Seattle to visit the space needle I would likely stay at the Holiday Inn Express to give it a try. Also, the neighborhood around this hotel is shady at best, but it allows for quick and easy access into and out of seattle.

This Holiday Inn is right next door to a Holiday Inn Express. If we had it to do over again, we would stay at the Holiday Inn Express. The Holiday Inn wasn't bad, but it is rather dated and in need of an update. When we walked into the lobby, I had flashbacks of the early 80's. Everything was clean, though. We arrived about three hours prior to the stated check-in time; but they went ahead and put us in a room, which we greatly appreciated. The only problem we had during our stay was our toilet did not work quite right. For this inconvenience, they waived the parking fee. On a positive note, the location is great! Seattle Center, with the Space Needle and other attractions, is only a few blocks away. We even walked to Pike Place Market, although that is some distance away. All in all, it wasn't a bad experience; but we would probably choose a different hotel next time.

First, you need to know that the Holiday Inn Express is right next to the Holiday Inn hotel. Different check-in and parking areas.

When we arrived after a long day of flying to the Emerald City, we were greeted by friendly and thoroughly professional staff. I am a Priority Club member, a a fact that was not lost on the staff (it said so on my reservation). The Lobby was light and spacious and our room was very clean and modern/up-to-date with the amenities of a refrigerator, microwave and sink. Our room overlooked Dexter Avenue and although a rather busy street, it was quiet and we slept well.

Being somewhat jet-lagged, we opted for the restaurant at the hotel our first night. A thoroughly pleasant surprise. The food was good, and the staff friendly and attentive. This also turned out to be just as true in the morning breakfast as well. We ordered room service after our first night here. Room service was equally timely, friendly, and the food was quite good.

Located just across from the Seattle Center, it was well located for our daily excursions around town for the various sights we wanted to see. A morning walk to Queen Anne Hill got the morning started with views of the city, the Space Needle, and the Mountain (when it's out).

About the parking in the underground garage...not for the timid. The compact car spaces are designed for just that...compact cars. I assume the spaces on the lower level are larger, but I never had a problem finding a space on the upper level (I was driving a compact rental car). But if you are driving a "land-yacht," like the 1970's Cadillac Fleetwood I saw shoe-horned into a "compact car" space on the upper level, you are going to find parking a challenge. Trust me. It will be easier to have other riders wait for you in the lobby, which is easy to reach once you leave the garage.

We had three very pleasant nights here and wanted to stay here again on our last night in Seattle a week later, but they were already booked for the weekend. We would definitely return here again based on our experience.

Plus - large king suites, attentive staff, bar in hotel, everything in the city is a quick cab ride away

Negs - off street parking, but below the building - dicey, lousy neighborhood, overpriced for what you get
