Residence Inn Seattle Downtown/Lake Union
Ranked #60 of 104 Hotels in Seattle
Reviewed September 9, 2013

The front desk staff, particularly Karlea were so polite and helpful. The lobby opens up into an atrium with a big waterfall.

Our room was beautiful and roomy. The full kitchen is very convenient. The views of Lake Union and the Space Needle were lovely. Full breakfast is included with eggs, potatoes, meat, pancakes, waffles, fruit, yogurt, muffins, bagels, cereal, coffee, tea, juice, milk & more.

$25/day for underground parking.
Located on trolley line that goes downtown and connects to the monorail.
Great central location for getting around.

I stayed in a 2 bedroom for one night in August. The room was very clean, and the beds fantastic! The front desk staff was helpful around the clock. Morning buffet breakfast was nice. Good location in Seattle, where some of the neighborhoods leave a lot to be desired.

Dozens of tired, disgruntled people draped all over lobby waiting well past 4pm for rooms to be cleaned AND at least 6 employees standing around chatting at check-in desk. REALLY! Go clean the rooms! No offers of complimentary beverage or even a drink of water while waiting. Also, location is not so great an area. Upon arrival there was a person sprawled on the entry steps outside, obviously passed out!

This was a clean friendly hotel with amenities which were nice. Very convenient to three wonderful restaurants - walking distance across the street. Would definitely recommend this hotel and will stay there again when in Seattle, WA

We stayed here for two nights be for our Alaskan cruise. We loved the beautiful location , right in front of Union Lake. the tram ran right at the front door of this property. The buffet breakfast was very comprehensive, and well organized. The front desk personnel were both friendly and helpful. As an Marriott gold elite member, I always stay in Marriott property. Unfortunately, this location being gold elite means nothing, so please do not expect any sort of upgrade, nor special amenities. As well as the physical appearance once inside. The rugs are stained, worn-out looking, and our suite was not as clean as many Residence Inns I've had the pleasure of staying in. The bathroom walls, door, and tug looked very dirty. And as the hotel seemed to be fairly sold out. We were unable to really change rooms.

We had intended to stay only 3 days at this Residence Inn but ended up staying 5 because one of our kids came down with tonsillitus and our plans changed. Nevertheless, we were very comfortable with our two-bedroom, two-bathroom suite. It would have been a catastrophe if we were all in one room! The hotel offers a free, all-encompassing breakfast -- there's something for everyone -- and if it isn't exactly in the middle of downtown Seattle, it's certainly close enough. We didn't have to take public transportation because we had a car, so I don't know how that would have worked out. The front desk was attended by very helpful staff who we got to know quite well due to our endless barrage of questions about everything Seattle, so no complaints there! Any housekeeping concerns were addressed immediately and we received a follow-up phone call to make sure we were satisfied. We would definitely recommend this place and would happily stay again.
