“Good choice for place to stay near downtown attractions.”
Reviewed 16 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Our first AirBnB experience and it was very nice. Check-in and out was very easy and it was nice to have a garage there - this was great as we got a car and spent a day driving and hiking at Mt. Rainier and parking is expensive downtown. The Shelby is about halfway between Peak Street Market and the Space needle and about 10+ minute walk to the pier where you can take an all day whale watching tour. The apartment was clean and in good condition. I didn't realize how hilly Seattle was though until walking there several days! The only reasons I don't give it five stars is that there was not a pool or central air (August is a little hot in Seattle, but they did have a portable unit) and I think I would have preferred it be closer to more shops and one attraction like Peak Street Market and then we could have taken a taxi if we didn't want to walk far then. But it was a good value for the money and we got to stay together instead of separate rooms in a hotel.

“Every thing well organized”
Reviewed 13 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Everything went ok. Good condo, great location; all the details related to the rental covered. Clear instructions.
To improve: change the window blinds and fix the noise coming from outside

“Great location for convenience to everything.”

Better than average rental on a safe, relatively quiet street, close to Pike Place Market and Seattle Center.

“Worn, tired looking apartment. Does not look like photos. For the price you pay, condos should be nicer.”
Reviewed 3 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Our carpet was worn and stained. Blinds were broken so that light streamed in bedrooms at sunrise (not good when on vacation.) Closet door handles were broken. Bed linens were worn. I contacted Stay Aldred during our stay and they said maintenance would correct the problems. No one came. For the price you pay for these (more than $400 per night) I expected a lot nicer, chicer and more polished unit. On a positive note, the tenants of the building were friendly and the location was decent (15 minute walk to space needle and pike place market) it was also nice to have a parking spot.

“Great location and spacious accommodations!”
Reviewed 3 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The Shelby was located downtown Seattle and was within walking distance of all attractions. The apartment was spacious and accommodated four women on a girls' getaway vacation.
