My daughter, service dog, and I stayed here on a quick overnight before her spring break. The location can't be beat - very easy to get to from the freeway, no more than 4 miles north of great places to shop, and only about 20 minutes from Western WA University. I am a relatively light sleeper and encountered no problems from either the freeway or the trains. There are coffee and subs nearby. Bob's Burgers and Brew is adjacent, but the carry-out menu had no prices on it. That makes it a no-go on a teacher/student budget.
When we checked in, we were pleased with the clean, well-attended lobby and check-in. Special kudos to Laura for greeting us so warmly and remembering the phone cinversation we had the day before. This went a long way to making us feel welcome as guests.
This hotel is NOT pet friendly but, of course, accepts service animals. Unfortunately Max made 2 yaps about 4 pm and someone complained to the front desk. He is generally well-behaved, but he is a dog and hears a noise and thinks he has to protect his family. This left us on edge we were going to be asked to leave. I took him to the lobby to show how well-trained he is, but were not able to show him to whoever complained. It wouldn't have been bad but we were about 2-3 rooms away from the hotel and young children were rather noisy between there and the pool as the evening wore on - which made the service dog be on alert. Neighbors next to us, a room closer to the lobby, were noisy off/on until 2ish - which again alerted the service dog. I don't know what the hotel can do, but perhaps a quiet policy after certain hours or a reminder to be considerate of neighbors or other guests as you move through public spaces might help.
Food in the hotel was convenient. I didn't use the amenities shop next to the desk, but it appeared to have a satisfactory selection. I liked the 24/7 coffee service and appreciate that they had decaf coffee available. Thebreakfast selection was comparable to a couple continental breakfasts I've had in variety. Quality was another thing - I found the breads/pastries to be rather dry. The hard-boiled eggs were not quickly replenished when consumed by the early-birds, I would also suggest a sugar-free syrup for the waffles.
The room was pretty comfortable, although the beds were a bit soft and the pillows too squishy for my taste. The bathroom had a wide door and the tub had a handlebar - nice for someone needing the room or support but not an accessible room.
I booked the room through Priceline. If I could get a similar price, I'd stay here again. Otherwise, I'm not sure it would be worth the stress I encountered with the service dog.
