This hotel provided us with almost all facilities needed for an enjoyable stay. Only the hot jaccuzi would have made it perfect. We spent a total of eight nights there, The staff at the front desk and at the breakfast room were friendly and professional. During my first night I could not go to sleep because my restless legs were...

Here is what you need to know....Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express are basically the same location (they are literally back-to-back with each other). If you go to the wrong one, just turn down the little alley between them rather than wandering the confusing one way streets around them. Other than that, the hotel is getting kinda dated, staff are...

This place was better appointed in the rooms than your usual Holiday Inn Express, good value for money for a city centre hotel. We had good views from the room window. I slept well every night, breakfast was good for this sort of place. Could not fault it for the price.

We spent 6 nights at this hotel and had a comfortable king size bed and a suite with a 55 inch tv in both rooms. It had a nice couch and a kitchenette. The room was very clean but had a little mold around the shower/tub. The shower/tub was hard to get into but the tub also had whirlpool jets...

We walked to the Space Needle in less than five minutes. After that we took tram to downtown and walked to Pikes Place. Fair priced. Also a bus picked you up from lobby to visit other attractions. Included a breakfast buffet and made a nice two day stay before cruising which they provide a shuttle.

Do not stay in room 503 ..one bedroom two bathroom suite. Only one bathroom was stocked with towels. No house cleaning after the first night, had to ask if housecleaning was coming at 3 pm on the second night. Elevators slow and smelt awful. The free breakfast was all carbs, fresh fruit was a couple apples. The website says pool,it...

For being a completely book hotel this place was real quiet. Lots of restaurants to walk to or take an Uber for under $10. It looks like a lot of more buildings are coming to the area with more shop space below them. All within walking distance. The room could use a makeover but overall not to bad.

This Hotels location was convenient but the hotel lacked in a few way. The Hotel was a fair price which included a pool and a buffet breakfast. The breakfast consisted in microwaved eggs and assorted bagels and muffins. The eggs were a weird gritty textures. They did have a tasty cinnamon roll but it was very sweet and I could...

HIE and Holiday Inn are next to each other at this location. Indoor and outdoor parking for $19. Restaurant attached to Holiday Inn and a great selection of restaurant about 10 minutes by foot. Liquor store with good selection of craft beers and wines just two minutes away. If you are lucky Quba will check you in.

“View to the Space Needle”
 of 5 bubbles tatmacc, 6 Jan 2017 | Read review
“A view of the Space Needle comes at cost of facing noisy Aurora Ave. Get a room on the other side of the hallway if you want quiet.”
  • Our room overlooked busy & noisy Aurora Ave, but nice view of Space Needle
  • King-sized bed took up a lot of space in our room
