I'm from Tacoma, and I needed to attend a conference in Seattle with early morning meetings. The conference hotels were all quite expensive and I've always been curious about the Pensione Nichols because of their sidewalk sign (I've seen it for years when shopping in the block near Maggie's Shoes). What a great stay, and we'll be back! The Pensione experience is best for those who can handle two flights of stairs, who enjoy a old, quirky building with character and are okay using a restroom down the hall from their room. High points: incredible convenience & location, the common room with gorgeous views of Elliott Bay, and a fresh, delicious continental breakfast with bread basket, fresh fruit and excellent coffee. The proprietress is friendly, personable and attentive but not intrusive. I also enjoy the Sylvia Hotel in Vancouver BC, and although this is a different model of accommodation, it has become my Sylvia Hotel of Seattle. I intend to come back when I'd like a night or two away from it all or when I need to write or think. It delights me that I'll be able to roll out of bed and already be at the Market. Truly a gem in the heart of Seattle.
