This past week I spent 3 days at the Inn at the WAC in downtown Seattle.
Check-in was fast, and the employee provided me lots of great info about the amenities and area. The entire hotel was immaculate and smelled nice. The hotel has 20 floors and although sometimes the wait for the elevators was up to two minutes, the cars themselves moved very quickly.
My room was on the 19th floor facing Puget Sound and the view was fantastic!
I had a standard guest room, and although it was much smaller than the average size hotel room it was nicely decorated, very clean, and the bed & pillows were luxurious! The bathroom was also very clean, and the shower was great. Although the water didn't quite get hot enough for my liking, it was not unpleasant.
The TV in the room was a large wide-screen, although the channel selection was just very basic cable and most of the channels were being broadcast in EST instead of PST. This didn't bother me too much, as I didn't go to sit around and watch TV.
The hotel also provides free WiFi access to the rooms, which was great. There was also an option to upgrade to a higher internet speed for $9.95 a day.
I didn't use any of the fitness facilities during my stay as I am pregnant, but I did visit two of the restaurants. On my first night I ate dinner in the sports bar on the 2nd floor - The service was very good and the food was delicious with generous portions. A bit pricey for the type of establishment, but I guess reasonable for being in a hotel.
I also ate breakfast at the fine dining restaurant, Torchy's. I had the breakfast buffet and everything was fresh and wonderful.
The hotel staff went above and beyond during my entire stay to make me feel welcome and comfortable. The concierge and bell service employees were extremely helpful and polite.
All in all it was a fantastic stay and if I ever find myself traveling to Seattle again I will definitely try to make another reservation.
