Thank you for your comments, and I am sorry the chargers were not found. All found items are tagged, logged, and stored until guests call to inquire about them. We have boxes full of chargers that had been left behind and have gone unclaimed, so we do certainly hold on to them when we find them. As always, please feel...

Stayed at this hotel for a training with the company I work for. Great location and comfortable stay. The front desk staff was friendly and the rooms were spacious and the hotel, even though on a Main Street, is very quiet. Great restaurants and shopping in within walking distance and plenty of great attractions, Space Needle etc. are also within...

Unlike some reviewers, I found the staff to be very helpful and friendly. I didn't have any problems but when I checked in and later came back to ask questions, they were courteous. They gave me a map and circles all the "to go to" places and even told me which bus to take to get to the wharf. We...

We booked a room in Seattle at the Holiday Inn Express Seattle Center as it was close to what we wanted to do before our cruise to Alaska. When we arrived, the clerk said we had a smoking room and it reeked of smoke. It was the only room available and we could not accept it. He blamed Travelocity for...

Thank you for your comments, and I am sorry you were not happy with your accommodations. Reservations booked as "Standard Room" types, whether it be through a third party such as Travelocity or directly through our hotel, are not guaranteed a specific room type. This occurs mostly when we are close to capacity and one particular room type is not...

Last week I had the good fortune to visit Seattle, and stayed in the Holiday Inn Express in the City Center. It was a very pleasant stay. The rooms were large, clean, and well furnished.

Thank you very much for sharing your comments! I deeply apologize for any inconvenience with the IHG Rewards Club issue. We do have a few new employees at the desk who may not have known the proper course of action in this instance. This is something I will address so that we can avoid any other guest frustration going forward....

The location was great for exploring on foot or by transit. It is just blocks from the Space Needle and close enough to Pike Market Place to hop the Space Needle monorail and walk down from the mall at the other end. We stayed one night in a two room suite with a hide-a-bed and two nights in a room...

Let me start by saying , Jeff who represented himself as the front desk manager is not very accommodating and acts like the guests are a bother.

Diamond in the Rough. Surrounded by traffic and urban "relics"... this was a quiet, reasonable, and effective hotel. Within walking distance of Space Needle, Market, and Restaurants. Small "Diner" attached to hotel was exceptional... Friendly staff with efficient and practical menu.

“A view of the Space Needle comes at cost of facing noisy Aurora Ave. Get a room on the other side of the hallway if you want quiet.”
  • Our room overlooked busy & noisy Aurora Ave, but nice view of Space Needle
  • King-sized bed took up a lot of space in our room
