The air system is very loud and blows straight onto your face forcefully when you're in bed. The thermostat is way off so the room is freezing. The beds are hard and have springs sticking out. And the parking lot is full of equipment so there's no room for guests to park at the hotel itself. Several of my co-workers...

I hosted a business event and stayed one night in the hotel. One can take the train from the airport to the Westlake stop and walk two blocks to the Motif. It's smack dab in the middle of everything. I found the staff to be very attentive and accommodating - much less chaotic and personal than large venues such as...

Great room, Frolik food was good. Customer service was slightly average. In our first room, the heat and the phone were not working. We were promptly moved to another room. I had booked this stay with a package titled, "Experience the Culture of Seattle," which included a gift certificate to Nordstroms. At check-in, I was told that the GC wasn't...

I travel a ton for work and leisure but this is my FIRST Tripadvisor review. I could not let time pass without reviewing the Motif - Seattle. It was literally the perfect hotel for business travel. It was cost effective (which my business liked) but also comfortable, modern, & chic (which I liked)! The shower head in the bathroom is...

Was great except for the construction to upgrade the parking garage. Bathrooms have a barn door which was kinda annoying. Service was fast and friendly. Recommend staying here for comic con each year.

I would not chose this hotel again if I was staying downtown Seattle. Bad lighting, slow elevators, fitness room was under construction. Not an inviting atmosphere and too much going on in the lobby that did not create a relaxing stay. I did like the flat panel TV.

The hotel overall, the staff, and the frolik restaurant were great! The pike place market is very close, the monorail and shopping centers as well. Everything is walking distance! The location was great!

The good, the bad, ... Starting with a positive, the location of this property could not have been better. Good access to restaurants and shopping as well as my business meetings and walkable to many more touristy areas as well. The lobby is tiny but the room was good sized and the furniture was nice. I liked the modern decor....

The hotel itself is nice enough, rooms are spacious and has nice furniture. But what makes this really great is location, it is right in the shopping district an easy 10 minute walk from Pike place market. Service and housekeeping are great as well, so I would definitely recommend staying here.

Overall, Motif provided a lovely experience. Staff were friendly and helpful. The wine provided daily was a lovely touch. The location is also great, giving guests easy access to the Seattle Space Needle.
