Seattle, Washington
Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

The rooms have no night blinds and have bright street lights shining through the cheap thin curtains. Very noisy parties are held there about which the staff won't inform you when you check in, sleeping with the bright lights and noisy environment is impossible and the manager/owner is rude and uncivil. Even the shuttle driver was rude, reflective of the...

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in March 2017 because I was attending a conference next door. First, the positives. The location is perfect for the Conference Center, and has a shuttle bus to get you from and to the airport. The staff are helpful. Sadly, there were not many other good things about my stay. It really...

They did an exceptional job on the interior of this hotel. I thought the restaurant was very good. The room was spacious and newly decorated. But the bed was literally concave. It was like sleeping in a bowl. I set the air conditioning on the lowest setting, but could not keep the room cool.

Generally speaking, I did not like this property. The hotel interior has seen better days. The room was clean, but I thought the bed and everything was from the 1980s. The owners should renovate this property as soon as possible. There are no public staircases to get to the upper floors. This is a problem, esp. if the elevators are...

I can sum up this property with one simple word. TIRED. It is not reflective of other newer Holiday Inn properties. One elevator had a down button that didn't work so you got to ride up to go down to the lobby. The room was worn out. Bed was uncomfortable and very noisy. The halls were filled with pizza boxes...

I arrived at 1am and there was a short line that moved quickly. There was an impatient woman that I allowed to cut in front of me. She proceeded to be exceptionally rude and mean to the desk employee. She berated him for being the only person working and for several hotel policies that he informed her about. The employee,...

Was really great experience and nice rooms, great shower. Very enjoyable experience. Have coffee and tea in room, nice tv and Wi-Fi. Was expecting a queen size bed but think it was a double, we made it work however and still slept great, barely any noise from planes.

Good enough for one night stay near airport. Quiet than I expected and good for jogging around. Enough space well maintained bed with clean linens. One thing might be improved is the poor response and not clear screen of TV.

I had a large room with a king bed and a sleeper sofa. The room and furniture was fine. The heating/cooling did not work properly; no matter what the digital thermostat was set to, the temperature in the room stayed at 75 degrees. Fortunately the windows open fully (despite being on the 5th floor with no balcony!) and I was...

My room was old and tired. Bathroom has seen a better day. Common areas poorly maintained. Service was average. The chain restaurant was load and needs a rehab. On top of that, they charge to park your car. Not pleased and would not return. Not a good brand representation.
