“outstanding visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

My husband and I have stayed in this hotel many times. It was outstanding again. It was our 10th wedding anniversry and the hotel made us feel so special. We received a room upgrade. Champagne and strawberries were waiting for us in our room. Our room was amamzing with fantastic views. Everyone you come into contact with is friendly, polite, and welcoming.
Highly highly recommend!

Great place. We found this to be a perfect place for our first trip to Seattle. All recommendations for restaurants were good and seemed to be ones that locals liked. Also the hotel car service was very appreciated. Location was also near many attractions and their restaurant had wonderful breakfasts

Just have to say this hotel was almost perfect. The corner room we were in was immaculate, had a gorgeous bathtub with a killer view in a beautiful bathroom, and some great Puget Sound views. The only thing that would have been better is a higher floor - there are only 14, and above that are condos, and the water view is partially blocked, esp. on the lower floors. But that's a quibble.

The 1000 is easily the best place we've stayed in Seattle's Downtown. The staff was great, very responsive and quick to send up extra towels, etc.

The safe in the room is too small for 15" laptops, but they kept our laptops in their own safe behind the registration desk without incident.

You're also close to both Pioneer Square and Pike Place Market, and prices were very reasonable for such a great hotel.

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the corner rooms on a high floor facing the water.

I picked this hotel based on Tripadvisor recommendations and the opportunity for a room with a view. The hotel is sleek, modern and high tech. The room I got had a view, but it was partially obstructed. I had fortunately asked for a highest floor possible, otherwise, I am not sure how much of a view I would have had. On the whole the staff are very friendly and try very hard to please. The few areas of improvement would be for better lighting in the room, detailed instructions on how to use the console for hooking up your personal audio devices (you need a special cord and to hit the AUX bottom on the remote), and more information at the front desk on services, attraction locations/ times, and hotel amenities which are not advertised. I think it's just a matter of training and consistency. Otherwise, I liked the hotel and would recommend it.

Room Tip: If you want a view of the water, ask for the higher floors and know that there is a building across...

What a wonderful stay we had in this clean, friendly, comfortable, and well located Seattle hotel! When i came in from a run each morning, i was greeted by someone from the staff dropping what they were doing to get me a bottle of water! And if you happen to be venturing out while it's raining or threatening rain and need an umbrella, you're offered those available at the (bell-hop?) stand when you walk out the door. Would return in a heartbeat...

I write this with a bit of trepidation as I'm a relatively easy going human being, but I feel the need to write this as my sole reason for choosing this hotel was their tripadvisor ranking and my experience was not that of a #1 hotel. Let me say that I don't think the hotel was bad, there were just enough tiny issues that stacked up that left me feeling unimpressed.

First off I will say the rooms are well appointed, contrary to some comments I think they are in very good condition and we were pleased with the amenities. With that being said, the bedroom itself had no window and was very dark, to some this may be a convenience, but I found it very hard particularly with a clock that required a button to light up and tell you what time it was. The bed to me was a bit too hard, but that is a personal preference and nothing I would slight a hotel for.

When engaging with the hotel staff they were always friendly and courteous, however, in the 4 nights and 5 days that we stayed there, aside from checking and checking out I do not believe my wife and I were acknowledged by the staff unless directly engaging them. I had read reviews about the concierge pulling off miracles for other members of the community and we had asked to get a reservation for dinner one evening at any time at a particular restaurant, unfortunately they were unable to do so. I can't necessarily fault them for this, but at the same time it was the only request we made on our trip and it was disappointing all the same.

We did take advantage of the Spa and received wonderful massages, again though, there was an issue. We had made the reservations specifically for two women and at a time that wasn't very convenient for us simply so we could have two women. When we got there they had us scheduled with two males and while it was remedied, it was surprising. There was also a billing issue for the massages at the end of the trip that had to be tended to.

As a hotel, I liked Hotel 1000, as a $400+ per night, #1 hotel ranked hotel I simply do not feel it fits the bill and as someone who travels regularly to Seattle I don't think I would have it in my top 5.

I've stayed at a few hotels and this is amongst the best. Service is great, the rooms are big with great bathrooms and M/B bath products. We had arranged a Expedia deal for 2 nights and decided that the Hotel was so good we would stay an extra night. Expedia could not extend but the front desk gave us the same deal - really excellent Customer Service.
