We landed on this hotel via a deal, so we paid $239 a night, parking was $39 a night and a pesky $14 a night resort fee for water WIFI and happy hour wine - that is the bad news. The good news was the central location, nice room, great beds, quiet, great staff and a rooftop bar on 5th...

The staff here were very friendly! The location was excellent. Conveniently located close to some good restaurants (Hard Rock Cafe) and cool tourist attractions (Pike Market). About a 30 minute walk to Century Link field too. Our room was spacious and clean but the bed felt like it needed to be replaced as it had a sag right in the...

Incredible location that allows you to walk almost everywhere, we even made the walk to Safeco Field approx 1.7 miles but you stop in Pioneer Square halfway through, worked out really well. Cafe across the street had some of the best breakfast foods and coffee.

Reviewed 27 August 2016

Very clean hotel and comfortable room and beds. Long line for check-in, but they offered wine while you waited - which was wonderful! The restaurant lounge was beautiful and very relaxing. Although service was slow and food very over priced, and not worth the money in our opinion. We only ate breakfast there.

Good accommodation of changing the room (beds) since Amtrak Vacations wasn't clear about how many people would need separate beds! Nice staff throughout visit, from check-in to checking out and storing our luggage.

If only the mattress had been more firm, and there had been a full-length mirror in the room, it would have been a 5-star experience. Staff were truly great. The location is really good, easy to get to the market, museums, etc..

Friendly staff, upgraded us into a very comfortable family suite. We had no problems here, any request (we had very few) was fulfilled. Good location, parking was convenient though expensive (due to the location). Will stay here if we go back to Seattle.
