I helped organize a small convention (50 people) using this as the group hotel. In addition to a block of hotel rooms, we made use of meeting rooms and banquet services.
The hotel rooms were pretty decent. Your standard hotel room; clean, quiet, spacious, still never enough power outlets next to the bed... A HDTV, Microwave and Fridge in every room was a very nice thing. The water pressure in my room seemed pretty high, you had to be careful when turning on the tap to avoid spray. View was nice, right out at the Space Needle and the EMP Museum from our room on the west side of the building. Rooms where nice and quiet with decent acoustical separation.
The elevators are quirky, which was a little frustrating at times as much as we used them. For a regular stay this wouldn't be an issue, but going up and down many times a day made it a little annoying if there was a long wait. Stair access between the rooms and the lobby would have solved this issue, but was not available.
The meeting rooms where nice and decently equipped. They weren't "cheap" if all you needed was a space; but they came will equipped with our requested furniture and great staff support for last minute changes. Audio options for presentations were a little limited - connecting a laptop into the room speakers was a only minor challenge for myself as a broadcast engineer with an appropriate adapter, but it was a long way from plug-and-play.
We had a banquet at the hotel our last night; and for a very reasonable price we had a *delicious* meal with plenty of food and a room set up in style with ample "wow factor" for our attendees. The staff was extremely accommodating with our wide variety of special dietary requests and our uncertain numbers leading up to the event.
Overall it was a well suited place to host a small event; with very helpful staff in all departments who were quick to respond to our every need, despite the slightly aging facility. The prices were a little on the high side for some things for a low budget group; but given the fantastic location (half a block from the Space Needle, EMP Museum, and Seattle Center; short walk or monorail ride into down town, fast access from I5 when the traffic was co-operating) it was a very good deal all around.
I would not hesitate to host another event in this hotel.
