Spent one night at this hotel while visiting family in the area. Newly remodeled rooms and lobby area were great. Desk service was very good. Didn't use the parking. Great deal on Priceline.

This is an excellent hotel for a business traveler. We stayed here so we could bring our little beagle. It has a 24 hour business center which offers a color laser printer. It has all the amenities you could want including a full kitchen, a seating area to work, and a fitness center. The parking lot is a different story. The spaces are cramped and expect to have some dents in your doors after your stay. Don't bring a nice car; you'll be sorry.

We planned to arrive early, so I called to request early checkin. Nothing was available at the moment, but they took our number and called as soon as a room opened up (less than 1 hour). Arrived at front desk to find we had been upgraded to 2BR suite (reservation was for a 1BR suite)! All right! Room was a nice size, full size fridge. Crib was not the usual packnplay variety, but a solid one that sat higher off the floor and had a nice ftited sheet. Also provided a small blanket that was soft! (Previous hotel experience is worn packnplay with flat sheet tucked in, and a scratchy blanket). Since we had flown to Seattle, it was nice not to lug our own portable crib. Parking onsite is $19 day, but very convenient. Although we didn't use it, I noticed a streetcar stop right outside the main entrance of the hotel, and it headed into downtown. Marina and restaurants right across the street, along with a small playground set - great for kids to use up some energy! Whole Food Market about 1 mile away was great for premade food as well as regular groceries. Pool was nice, and complimentary breakfast was huge- eggs, waffles, pancakes, bagels, muffins, fruit, oatmeal, etc. etc. One note- I booked on their website, and the price had dropped when I checked back later in the week. I called them and they made the adjustment without a hassle.

My family, including my 63 year old parents, sister, and 4 year old nephew, booked a room at this hotel on their way home from Hawaii to Juneau, AK. They have stayed here before and enjoyed their experience. This time, they arrived at the hotel (after 11pm due to a late flight) to discover their room had been given away, due to an emergency in which the hotel was putting up a family who's home had a fire. The hotel had made no effort to call my parents to notify them, though it is fairly obvious that they knew early in that day that the family would not be vacating the room my parents were suppose to have. The staff were not as apologetic as I would have expected, under the circumstances. They did find my parents a room at one of their other hotels. The room was a downgrade from the suite they had reserved. The hotel compensated them one night's stay but they had to pay for the other 2 nights in the small room, and the price ended up being only 10$ cheaper than the suite they had reserved. Although the staff called a taxi to transfer to the second hotel, there was no effort made to help my family with their bags (my Father is disabled). Once at the second hotel, the staff there acted as if they had no idea who we were, again did not offer any help with bags, and again, did not apologize for the huge inconvenience that this ordeal had caused. The staff's behavior was unacceptable and I would not recommend the hotel.

Stayed here for a week when we arrived in the US from England before we were able to move into our house. Had two huge bedrooms for us and our two little boys (aged 6 & 3). With the kitchenette, living area and TVs in every room showing HBO movies we had all we could wish for. Staff very friendly and helpful. Delicious, varied and plentiful complimentary breakfasts and some evenings they provided complimentary light meals ("socials"). Pool. Streetcar outside hotel takes you to downtown Seattle within minutes. Lovely location by Lake Union. Beds very comfortable, I wanted to take mine home with me! No complaints, we had a wonderful comfortable stay, it was just what we needed.

We read the reviews and our expectations were high but our experience was even better. Lovely building, beautiful atrium. Good location, a short, interesting streetcar ride from downtown Seattle. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Somebody must do a great job of training and managing staff. We really appreciated the free upgrade to a beautiful large suite with a view. Breakfast was great.

We will be back!

From the moment we walked in we were welcomed by staff. The rooms were well kept & we were given plenty of supplies.
The location was well suited for our business, fun, & nightlife.
We wish we had a better view, but you can't have everything all the time.
If we happen to be back in this area we will return here.
