Positive Reviews

Love for the Lodgings

Travelers praise the newly-refurbished rooms at this hotel. Accommodation is regularly described as comfy, quiet, spotless and spacious. Firm mattresses with fresh bedding and soft pillows ensure a great sleep for most guests. Super-fast complimentary in-room Wi-Fi is a big plus for those with some work to do.

Drivers Rest Easy

This central Seattle hotel has a secure underground parking garage, which guests describe as spacious and well-lit. Using this facility come at a cost with hourly and daily fees, but that doesn't seem to bother most road trippers, who find the relatively inexpensive service gives them one less thing to worry about.

In the Heart of the Action

Travelers agree that this is a great base for visiting the many attractions in the South Lake Union neighborhood. Cruise ship passengers heading for Seattle's Terminal 91 use it for relaxing one-night layovers. Families find plenty to amuse with the iconic Space Needle and several museums on the doorstep.

Negative Reviews

Not a Morning Hotel

While most guests have nothing but good to say about breakfasting in the hotel's adjoining grill restaurant, many would like the option to grab some free items from an on-site breakfast bar typical of most Holiday Inn hotels. Coffee-connoisseurs aren't overly enamored with the free stuff served in the lobby.

A Pool Would be Appreciated

Guests are miffed to discover that this large, city center hotel doesn't have a swimming pool or any spa facilities. While it does have a fitness area and gym which is open until 11pm, this area is deemed by many to be quite basic - just enough to burn off the flavorsome North Western dishes you'll inevitably consume!

Top-Floor Views Only

Many travelers are uninspired by the views from some rooms in this Seattle hotel, which only has six floors and is part of an ever-changing urban landscape. However, guests rave about impressive Space Needle views from top floor rooms in this property, so aim high, and you might see over the walls.
