Two adults and two young kids stayed two nights for shopping and R&R. This hotel is only one year old and still fresh and clean. It's located a few blocks from the downtown shopping area, close to the freeway and other sights. We used valet parking which was $25/day but probably safer than the street. There's a Whole Foods supermarket below the hotel and few other retail shops, Starbucks (of course), REI mountain equipment is a few block away.
The lobby is modern and comfortable. We were checked in quickly (the way it should be). Our room was on the 11th floor facing Lake Union. The room had two twin beds, a sofa, desk & chair, widescreen tv, coffee maker, wireless internet, etc. The best thing was the glassed-in shower stall and separate soaker tub with sliding door so you could watch tv while bathing. It just opened up the room and made it way more spacious.
As any luxury hotel, everything is pricey (room service, minibar, etc) but worth it. Only letdowns were the two twin beds for two adults and two kids presents some challenges. Also the elevators broke down one afternoon so we had to hike the eleven floors. The asian fusion restaurant was unusual. Lastly, the checkout, although quick would have been nice if the clerk smiled and looked up! All & all it was a great hotel.
