Positive Reviews

Comfortable rooms with good amenities

Although some guests mention that the hotel rooms are a little dated, most find they are of a decent standard. Plus, the selection of included amenities offers both comfort and convenience. A top tip from guests is to request a room that overlooks the Space Needle.

Breakfast offers plenty of choice

Reviews of the free breakfast served at the hotel suggest that you can look forward to a meal that sets up you nicely for the day. There's a good choice of items on offer, so you'll be able to find something to suit your appetite.

Good location

With much of Seattle on your doorstep, there's a good chance you won't need to bother using your car. There are numerous cultural attractions within half a mile of the property, as well as good shopping and dining opportunities. Even the Great Wheel and Seattle Aquarium are walkable in around 30 minutes.

Negative Reviews

Small leisure facilities

Probably the best way to describe the leisure facilities at this hotel is to use the word acceptable. There seem to be both good and bad points. The pool is small, but the water temperature is good. The fitness center is a little basic but is okay for a quick workout.

Guests have issues with the Wi-Fi

Experiences with the hotel's Wi-Fi is mixed. Some guests didn't encounter any problems, but others describe it as so weak that you will struggle to get online. Plus, it seems to slow down more in the evening, presumably as more guests are trying to connect.

Small bathrooms

A fair number of guests are disappointed by the bathrooms, often describing them as so tiny that you have to wedge yourself beside the toilet in order to be able to shut the door. While many guests appreciate that space is limited in city center hotels, these do seem excessively small.
