Selected this hotel due to its location and the fact that we are Marriott Gold members so we try to use Marriott properties when possible. The location is great,but that is all I can say was great....
Parking in any city center is expensive, you can easily park on the street from Saturday night until 8 am Monday as parking on Sunday is free. There are also garages located nearby,
My sweetheart got up early Monday to move the car into a garage but when he returned to come back to our room, he was harassed and literally CHASED to the elevator by two front desk clerks who demanded to see his room key and threatened to call the police! They were not doing this to anyone else in the hotel lobby.. Our conclusion is that he was unfairly profiled due to the fact that he has a beard, long hair and was in pajama bottoms. They even called up to the room, waking me up, to verify that he was indeed a guest in this room, even after he showed his room card. It was ridiculous - we had already been staying there multiple nights and been through the lobby multiple times! We asked for an apology and were given one begrudgingly. If they are going to have a policy to monitor people who come through the lobby, then they need to monitor everyone or only allow elevator access with a room key -- it is NOT okay to single people out because you do not like the way they look!
Other than that, the room was your usual king-sized room, there was a mini-fridge which was nice as Marriotts usually do not offer that. We were in the middle of the building with a tiny balcony and a view of Elliott Bay.
The internet was not very reliable. There is a charge for 24-hours of access unless you are a Gold level member or above.
The concierge lounge is on the 8th floor and not open Saturday or Sunday. We ate breakfast there on Monday morning and the offerings were average scrambled eggs, bacon, oatmeal , yogurt, some fruit and some pastries/bagels/bread and juice. Instead of a regular coffee maker, they had one with a selection of cappucino, mochas, hot cocoa, etc as well as coffee, kind of like they have at gas stations. It was slow and noisy. The view from the lounge was nice though.
If you get a reasonable rate and especially if you dop not have a car to park, it is not a bad place but based on our treatment we will not return nor would we recommend it.
We did not use the pool but it was an interesting indoor/outdoor concept. No spa though.
