Best Western Plus Pioneer Square Hotel
Ranked #31 of 104 Hotels in Seattle
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 11, 2011

We stayed at the BW in Pioneer Sq for 2 nights. This hotel is old but very clean, all of the wood, and decor is warming & charming. The staff is genuine & friendly. The atmosphere is calm and allows you to go slow and enjoy. Even the elevator is on it's own time line. The location is perfect to downtown with easy access to all areas of interest. The continental breakfast is excellent!. Really a good place to stay with good value.

Just left the BW Pioneer Square this morning, and it was a lovely experience. From the moment we arrived to check in I got a good vibe about the place. It's got an old west historic feel, all dark woods and rich fabric. The front desk staff was very friendly & helpful. The gentleman let us know that though the hotel charged $20 a day for parking in a local lot/garage, we could park on the streets for free anytime if we used our handicap placard. We didn't pay for parking the entire 4 days we were in Seattle, a great savings. During the day the Pioneer Square neighborhood is a bustling tourist area but after dark can be a bit intimidating. Lots of bar hoppers and LOTS of transients, so we tried to park on the main street where we could see the car from our hotel balcony, and we never left ANYTHING in the car. Oh yes, we had a sweet little balcony, which was a nice surprise along with our very generously spacious room. It felt more like a mini suite with a comfy sitting area as well as desk/business area in the room. Ample outlets, which was another surprise for such an old hotel. The rooms were recently renovated, so they were well appointed. The bed was great, wifi worked well, HDTV, I loved the shower in the good sized bathroom, and the free morning breakfast included the usual continental fare with lots of fresh fruits, cereal, baked goods and pour your own waffles. Cons: There was a lot of street noise at all hours, but if we kept the windows closed it didn't disturb us (note: I'm born & raised in NYC, nuff said). We loved how close to everything the hotel is. Lots of shops in the area and the ferries are right across the street. I would happily stay here again, and recommend it to friends and family.

We stayed for 2 nights at the Great Western Pioneer Square Hotel. We enjoyed our stay and found the hotel very comfortable, convenient and the staff extremely helpful. I was originally worried about noise being downtown, however, room 419 on the front of the hotel, was an excellent choice and was quiet, extremely clean, well serviced and very comfortable. The continental breakfast included with the rate was good - cereals, boiled eggs, pastries, toast, jams, good coffee, juice and you could make a fresh waffle too - more than enough to get you going for a day.
The underground tour runs from Pioneer Square a block away. It is a very interesting tour, lots of humour, worth doing. We liked being in the historic part of town - walked down First Avenue to Pike Market and the main town shopping centre. The train/light rail is only a few blocks walk from the hotel though, and you can catch this to the city or a suburban mall if you have time. We walked to the station with our luggage and caught the light rail to Seatac airport and at $2.75 a person this was a great value deal in saving on cab fare. The hotel overall and the great helpful staff exceeded our expectations.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room, on the 4th floor, away from the motorway side. Room 419 with a queen bed was...

Very friendly and helpful staff, good complimentary breakfast. Rooms were decent-sized and comfortable. It looked like it was remodeled within the last 5 years. It is only 1.5 blocks from the Metro station, so it was convenient getting from and to Sea-Tac airport. It is located in the historic section of Seattle. The only negatives are that about 3 blocks away are the shelters and missions for the homeless. The walls of the hotel are a little thin; we didn't hear people talking, but did hear the plumbing whenever a nearby toilet was flushed or shower turned on. The hotel is about a block away from an elevated highway, so it was a little noisy during the weekday mornings. Otherwise, the hotel was a great place to stay and a pretty good value. Within walking distance to Pike's Market, Seattle Center (less than 2 mi), and Chinatown.

Room Tip: away from elevator and ice machine. Interior rooms (without a window) will eliminate the highway and...

We booked the 4 night package prior to joining a cruise, we had stayed in Seattle before in a hotel with a room that was no bigger than a shoe box. This was not the case with this hotel, the room was large, light and airy and the bathroom had a very unusual shower that also doubled as a bath. The first impression of the hotel was not that good, there is a lot of dark wood panelling in reception and the lighting is a bit gloomy, however check in was both speedy and friendly, with the welcome news that the hotel had free wifi. The breakfast which is included in the room rate is good, always great to make your own waffles. The down side of the breakfast room is that it can be a bit cramped when busy and I'm afraid some guests have been quite careless and spilled things on the floor and stained the carpet - it really could do with a good shampoo just to tidy it up. The hotel is in a perfect location, near to the water front, so handy for ferries. For a bargain rate of just $2.75 you can take the light railway from the airport and the walk the block and a half to the hotel. Would definitely stay here again, also plenty of good eating places in walking distance.

We stayed 2 nights at this well-placed hotel in order to be able to walk to Safeco Field for a
Mariners/Yankees baseball game, you can also get a pedi-cab if you wish. From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty- our bags taken to our room and us allowed in very early which was a great help. The bag of cookies and water was a nice touch, very welcoming. The staff are excellent and friendly and Andrea at the front desk went out of her way to be helpful. It's a heritage building beautifully appointed and maintained, pretty and very clean. The area is perfect for tourism- shops, tours of the Underground City, and of course the stadiums nearby.The breakfast is fairly standard BW fare but somehow better- waffles with strawberries and whipped cream, e.g., and good coffee. I'd love to stay again.

Room Tip: Our room on a street that included a saloon next door was utterly quiet- and the windows actually op...
