“Great vacation”
Reviewed November 4, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The apartment that we stayed in was great. It had everything that we needed (except for a vase for the beautiful flowers we bought at Pike's Place market) The apartment was centrally located to everything we wanted to do so we were able to walk to everyplace we went. The street it was on had a couple of grocery stores, Multiple restaurants and coffee shops. I felt like the customer service was extremely good I did have to call about one thing and they tried to be very helpful.
The apartment was clean and well stocked. I will definitely look into Stay Alfred again when I am traveling.

“The location was beyond expectations and the apartment was great.”
Reviewed August 11, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Stay Alfred apartment, The Shelby, was great! The location was amazing, the Space Needle was visible outside our window. We were able to take the Light Rail from Sea-Tac airport and walk to the apartment. The apartment was centrally located and on the bus lines so no car was needed.

The only negative was that there was no way to adjust the heat/air conditioning in the apartment. Otherwise it was wonderful.

“You are BRILLIANT!”

person found this review helpful

All weekend long my sister, son, and nephew kept saying how brilliant I was for finding the Shelby. We could not be in a better location in Seattle. Pikes, Space Needle, Downtown, Waterfront! We walked everywhere and never needed our car. The condo was well appointed, with plenty of room. It was clean and had everything we needed. We walked to a downtown grocery and ate in when we wanted! The beds were comfortable which surprised us. This place was so much more comfortable than a hotel and less expensive than two rooms in a similarly located hotel. All in all a very successful weekend and you know what, I am brilliant for finding this place! I will use Stay Alfred again and when in Seattle, book this place again!

Thank you for taking the time to leave us your honest feedback. We are very sorry to hear about the parking issues you experienced during your stay. Unfortunately, parking is always a battle in downtown locations, but I have passed along your comments to our operations manager for review. We hope that you enjoyed your time in the city despite the issues you faced and that you will give us a second chance to provide you with the proper 5-star experience.

“We had a great time in Seattle!!”
Reviewed July 23, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We were very pleased with our apartment at The Shelby in Seattle as it was spacious, comfortable and very conveniently located. We were a comfortable walking distance from everywhere we wanted to go, but it was also easy to get a ride via taxi or Uber from out front of the building. We felt very safe in both the building and the neighborhood where it was located. The Stay Alfred staff were always available by phone/email, quickly and efficiently taking care of questions/concerns. All the information given for check-in made lots of sense when following the instructions exactly as written. We would definitely use Stay Alfred again.

“Our Seattle stay at The Shelby”
Reviewed July 14, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We were travelling with another couple. Our stay at the Shelby was great--location was perfect and the unit was very nice. It was hot in Seattle (a rarity, we hear), so we needed to call and request another fan; but they were pretty quick in getting one to us. The street out front (by master bedroom) is a bit noisy, but if you are there when the windows are closed, you'd hardly notice! And when we got the fan, it helped to muffle the street noise! The kitchen had everything we needed, loved the dining area and living room. I would definitely stay here again--and will definitely try another Stay Alfred location!
