“Excellent Pre-Cruise Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2010

We arrived at SeaTac on time and were picked up by the promised car service, easily accommodating the first 4 of our party, and delivered us to our waiting rooms, which were ready for us at noon. The last 4 in our party were also picked up at the airport, and delivered to their waiting room as well. The rooms were clean, spacious and the views of the Space Needle were spectacular. The hotel staff was outstanding, we were greeted by Patricia who not only met but surpassed our every need. The front desk provided us with directions to pick up last minute items at the drug store, liquor store, and even the best way to get to the monorail so we could all get to Pikes Place Market. The next morning we had breakfast, the car service dropped us off at Pier 66 to begin our Alaska cruise. I would highly recommend this hotel as would everyone in our party of 8.

OK, so this isn't the fanciest place, but for us it was perfect. The decor is a little dated and the rooms could have been a little cleaner. What makes this place great is the great service and outstanding location. The front desk staff was superb at check in and when we requested extra pillows or towels, there was someone at our door within a few minutes. The location is awesome if you are a tourist in Seattle. You are right across the street from the Space Needle and Science Centre, and the walk to the waterfront is just about 10 minutes away. It's a great location without the hefty city hotel price. The breakfast was a good deal for hotel guests ($6.99 for the buffet), but we only ate there once. If you want 5 star, this isnt your place. If you want a clean comfortable location, with good service at a really good price, then pick this hotel.

Oh, be aware of one thing; there is nightclub across the street that can be very busy on a Friday/Saturday night. That means noise, car alarms and possibly the police. If you turn on the room fan, it seems to drown out the noise

I am thrilled that you had a great time at our hotel!!!! We are so lucky to have the location that we do and I am very glad that you were able to appreciate it. In regards to the club across the street, it is a venue for private events and is rarely open. It used to be a club but was recently shut down. That venue is actually in the process of being turned into condos and apartments. Again, thank you for your feed back regarding your stay, and hopefully we will see you back in Seattle very soon! have a great rest of the week!

We stayed here for two nights in July. We liked this place a lot. The location is fantastic. Just far enough away from downtown so that we weren't paying 300.00 a night but still very convenient to the action. This hotel is right across the street from the Space Needle and on our first afternoon we took in the Needle and walked down to the waterfront for dinner and some wandering. The monorail leaves from the Needle and goes right into the heart of downtown for 5.50 for our family of four. The downtown bus service is free during certain hours, so they really make sure that this town is visitor friendly! Back to the hotel. The front desk staff were very courteous and helpful. The lobby is very tastefully decorated as are all of the common areas. The spaces are very clean and the rooms were very clean as well. The linens were very nice and of good quality. The rooms were very nice and spacious and well appointed with free high speed and HBO. They have a restaurant that offers a lovely breakfast buffet for 6.95 per adult and free to the kids. Great value! The only wrinkle was the fee for parking but as I understand this is pretty much the norm in Seattle so not really a big deal. It certainly wouldn't deter me from staying here again or telling my friends and family .

I am very glad that you had a nice stay in Seattle. Our bus system is great and I love that they provide the free rides in downtown from 7am to 7pm! It really is a great way to get around town. You also mentioned taking the monorail with your family and yes it is a fun way to get downtown and it is really affordable. Parking is a difficult situation in Seattle since there is not that much, but we have priced our parking as low as possible to make sure that we do not over charge our guests. This is very important to us and you can see that we could charge more for parking like some other hotels who charge up to 30 dollars a night. Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to give us a great review, and we hope to see you back in Seattle very soon! Have a great week!

This was a great Best Western! Large room with all the ammenities. View of the Space Needle from our room. Desk clerk was very helpful and held our bags while we looked around Seattle before our Alaskan Cruise. Breakfast was very good at a small charge. I really liked the "green" measures they have taken with this hotel.

I am so glad that you had a nice stay at our hotel. Like you said, we are blessed to have a wonderful location, great staff, and a management staff that wants to take care of our enviroment as well as our guests. We happen to be some of the few hotels in the downtown area that actually is "green" certified. We are proud of this and of the steps we take to ensure that we continue to be certified. Thanky you so much for taking the time to review our hotel and have a great week!

We had a hard time finding a hotel in Seattle. Our first choice would have been Silver Cloud Lake Union but they were booked. I called five or six other hotels and they were also booked solid.

There are plaster anchor devices in the wall that must have held pictures and should have been covered over. I mentioned to the front desk there was a breakfast tray that had been left in the hall since the morning. The chair in the room has soil marks on it. We paid $135.00 plus tax for this room.

On the positive side, it is within walking distance to the Space Needle, Ride the Ducks and the Science Fiction museum

They offer a breakfast buffet for half-price to hotel guests -- $6.95.

Thank you for taking the time and writing about our hotel. Since you have written your review of our hotel, I have had my entire maintenance staff address patching any and all issues in our guest rooms. a couple weeks ago we did switch from wall mounted lights to lable lights and lamps. This is part of our guest room updates which also include a furniture upgrade this week. By no means is this an excuse, but it is the reason why they are there. We have about 3/4 of them done and we will be done fixing them very soon. Thank you again for taking the time to review our hotel and we hope that you will come back and see our newly renovated rooms. Have a great week!

We stayed two nights as part of a trip to see the Yankees play the Mariners at Safeco Field. The room was good: quiet HVAC system, adequate sound privacy, microwave, fridge and coffee-maker, clean and comfortable. Buffet breakfast ($6.95 pp) was a cut above the usual. Parking ($15) was less than at downtown hotels and the room rate ($123) was reasonable. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Best of all, the location was great for our purposes. As Seniors we paid $1.75 each way to Safeco (plus an easy 10-minute walk) via monorail from the Space Needle (5 minutes walk) and light rail from the Westlake Center. Other attractions were equally accessible.

Overall, a wise choice.
