Technically I want to give it a 3.5 rating. We'd scored a really great deal on a discount-booking site, so when I called ahead to choose a king bed, I didn't expect they'd feel the need to extend much kindness to us, but they were fantastic. They made sure we had a non-smoking room, too. (There are still smoking rooms in Seattle??) Front-desk staff were super-friendly, and free wi-fi always earns my gratitude. The free morning breakfast had tons of options; the only downside was that on a weekend morning, jockeying for tables and toast was actually getting a little contentious. But that is more a commentary on the clientele than on the hotel.
Our bathroom door was made of a cheap material and looked pretty worn out, but the room was clean and the bed was really comfortable. It's a three-minute walk to the Space Needle and EMP, so if you don't mind walking fifteen minutes (ten flat blocks) to the shopping district and the Market, it's worth the savings. West-facing rooms have really great views, too.

We stayed at this property primarily for its location to the Seattle Center. During our stay we also rode the Monorail to Westlake and the downtown shopping, and then walked back to the hotel. We have stayed at many Holiday Inn Express in our travels around the country, and I would say this property is less than the normal experience. The property is older and is definitely showing wear and tear. New carpet and paint are needed. Room is smaller but clean.The staff were not overly friendly, but did take care of requests, etc in a timely manner. The breakfast was the typical Holiday Inn Express menu but they have definitely trimmed some items ...reducing costs? As Priority Club members we prefer to stay within the Holiday Inn brand, therefore our next trip to Seattle downtown area we will return to staying at the Crowne Plaza Hotel. More expensive but excellant staff, service, but unfortunately no comp breakfast.

Room Tip: Ask for room facing street and Space Needle if you want a view, otherwise you are looking at the back of the Holiday Inn across the alley.

Not my usual choice of hotel or even hotel class, as this was an atypical trip I took where budget trumped all else (got a two-queen room with free wi-fi and breakfast for less than $65/nt which can't be beat given the circumstances). Location is OK at best, though really depends on why you're in Seattle and what you want to do. It is located on a rather busy and grimy street but if that's not an issue, Seattle City Center is just a block away and Belltown/Downtown is a 10-15 walk or shorter bus ride in. If you have a car and need to get around, driving to I-5 or other major arteries seems easy. The room was clean, as were the rest of the premises. "Fitness room" really just consists of five outdated cardio machines and a treadmill, and the pool is really only usable if no more than 3 people are in it (or say, 4-6 little kids which, on this trip, were the primary users). Great for 1-2 night business travel, or perhaps a short vacation for young families traveling on a tight budget. Breakfast could really benefit from some fresh fruit, but then again it's there and free if you want it...mostly biscuits, eggs and a meat microwaved in bulk. There is yogurt, instant oatmeal, and some other assorted pastries available as well. I believe overnight parking is $10/nt though we didn't use it.

Room Tip: If you want a room facing the Space Needle, ask about the road noise as these rooms do face a busy expressway. Otherwise, you could be staring at the back of the adjoining Holiday Inn.

This was the 2nd Holiday Inn we stayed at after the first one in Pulluyup WA where we loved everything about the place we decided that for our Seattle trip this was the place to go. It was very good but not as good as the first one service, food cleanlieness and value are all great the Breakfast had a few less items than the first one but other than that it was terrific

It is also near many downtown attractions

Room Tip: this one is near the highway so get a room opposite the highway if you want a quite room
