My friends and I stayed in this beautiful hotel for our annual "moms weekend away." The hotel is elegant, offers excellent amenities for a variety of interests. We enjoyed happy hour in the bar area downstairs, which offered a great selection of wine, mixed drinks and appetizers. We liked the sliders especially. We did not eat at the hotel too much, preferring to walk to area restaurants to experience the city. The hotel was in easy walking distance to almost everything we wanted to see - the waterfront, Pike Place Market, Seattle underground, shopping and many, many restaurants. The one exception was the Space Needle, for that we walked to the monorail.
The staff was friendly, helpful and excellent in all respects. Housekeeping cleaned our rooms to perfection (for moms "away" for the weekend, this was the greatest treat of all - coming back to a spotless room!). Some in our group thought that the coffee served downstairs was not up to par (especially for Seattle), but those who used the in-room machines had no complaints. Some in our group commented that the lotion, shampoo and body wash products provided had an unpleasant smell, others were not bothered by them at all.
The hotel itself is beautiful. A historic landmark, the building is a sightseeing destination all on its own. I have already mentioned the excellent staff, but details throughout the hotel make this an outstanding place to stay. The beds are comfortable, the linens soft and luxurious. The robe and slippers are just right, and the hairdryers are full size. I know these sound like small things, but together they make the experience of this hotel "excellent."
