“Good Place for Seattle Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2014

It's a good value for the money. Very helpful, efficient, friendly staff, comfortable beds, close to Space Needle and Monorail. No hesitation in recommending this hotel. You can walk to the Chihuly Glass Studio from there, or catch the Quick Coach up to Vancouver across the street. Very convenient location. Everything you could expect is there. It's a quiet location, with a clean, quiet room and comfortable beds; fridge, m/w, safe.

Dear Moreah,

Thank you for your kind review of our hotel. We are thrilled that you enjoyed the many attributes of our hotel and the surrounding area. Many times guests leave and we have not had the opportunity to hear their thoughts. We feel very fortunate to be right across from some of the great sights you enjoyed such as the Space Needle and the new Chihuly Garden and Glass museum.

We hope to see you again if your travels bring you back to Seattle. Thank you for choosing Best Western.

Best regards,

Howard Cohen

This hotel was nice. Beds were very comfortable. Room was nice. Wish Breakfast would have been better and free. Staff was friendly and helpful. Cookies were good. Good value for time here. Wish they had a pool.

We stayed here for one night before we flew back to Southern California. We just drove in from Bellingham and my 4 year-old son fell asleep in the car. So I carried him in with my mom while my husband went to park our rental car. No greeting from the lady who was at the front desk. Anyway, I said Hello, we have a reservation, can we check in early. Still no "hello" or anything, she asked "What's the name?" So I gave her my last name and told her that if the rooms were not ready (since we were early) can we leave our luggages? No response from her again. Then I informed her that we were diamond members and she said "Well, I don't know if we have any rooms available this early", very angrily. Then she asked if we wanted two rooms close together or not, and I told her it didn't matter. Then she asked something again and I didn't quite understand her because I was getting tired of holding my son who is very tall and big for his age, then she yelled at me all angry and frustrated "Do you want it if there's one!" Both my mom and I could not believe what just happened and stared at her in shock for a few moment. Right then, my husband walked in, and suddenly she was all nice to him. So that's way I don't have a good review on this place, even though the location was great and as a diamond member, we received free parking and breakfast. Coming from staying at two other hotels where staff was absolutely great, having pleasant, helpful staff really changes the impression of the place.

Room Tip: Ask for if there's a room with newer carpet. The hotel is old and rooms smell like cigarette.

Dear CinnamonBon,

Thank you taking your time to review our hotel. We were very concerned with your initial impression of our hotel based on your interaction at the front desk upon your arrival. We take these reviews seriously and have shared them with our staff. We have reiterated the importance of quality customer service and seeing their service through the eyes of the guest.

We do appreciate you choosing our Best Western and hope that you would give our hotel another opportunity to serve your lodging needs when your travel brings you back to Seattle.

I have stayed here a few times over the years because of the location. I was not really impressed with some of the staff. In the past I had did not have to pay for parking when I stayed here but I was charged 15.00 per night apparently we did not present the correct rewards card. There is a lot of construction happening near by so be prepared to hear a lot of noise. What I did not expect was the housekeeping staff to start vacuuming at 8 am in the room next store banging on the adjoining door. To make it worse she stood outside our room door laughing and talking to another worker. They change the internet code daily but do not inform their guests. When I phoned to get the new code the clerk actually swore out of frustration of being asked several times during the day. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are clean. The breakfast is nothing compared to the picture on the elevator.

Dear afatchance1,

Thank you taking the time to review our hotel from your stay.

What most concerned us was your comment regarding housekeeping at 8AM vacuuming and talking in the hallways. We have shared this with our housekeeping staff and will work hard to make sure this type of disturbance is reduced as much as possible.

We hope you give us another opportunity to serve your lodging needs when your travels bring you back to Seattle.

Had a wonderful stay and walked to our concert to Key Arena. The staff were very helpful and great to talk to. Will stay here again when in downtown Seattle. Only downside is I am a full time wheelchair user and the accessible bathroom was a little challenging but I made it work. Thanks for the wonderful stay.

The good: The rooms were clean and tidy and in good shape, which is probably the most important thing in my mind. We had an amazing view of the Space Needle, which was totally unexpected. The location is excellent too, very central and convenient.

The bad: Some of the staff at the front desk were great, and some were nearly surly. The soundproofing between the rooms was poor - we were woken up in the middle of the night by our neighbours having a loud, drunking discussion about bodily functions very loudly, and they sounded like they were standing inside our room. Also, when we complained to hotel security about the loud neighbours, security told the loud neighbours which room had complained and gave them our room number (we could tell because we heard the whole thing).

Conclusion: There are so many hotels in this particular area that are all about the same price, why would you bother booking with one that was only "meh"? It's just not worth it. We've done this trip a number of times in the past and stayed at the Hyatt, which is a block away and costs about the same and it was great -- we'll probably go with them again next time around instead of the Best Western.

Room Tip: We asked for a room on the "quiet" side and ended up with a room with a Space Needle view...

Dear Quentin,

Thank you for taking your time to review our hotel. We are thrilled that you liked the physical attributes of the hotel. We were most concerned about your review of the incident with the noise and Security. We have since coached the Security staff to keep neighboring guests complaints anonymous to eliminate any potential negative retaliation.

We sincerely hope you will give us another opportunity to serve your lodging needs when your travels bring you back to Seattle. Thank you for choing Best Wrstern.

Too long of a wait when only one person is at the desk. Check in was fine and friendly. Quieter than I expected. Overall a good value relative to competing choices.
