Room was clean, hot breakfast is good with great lake view. Also is very close to nice restaurants. We went to Duck's chowder house for dinner, ordered crab sandwich and lobster chowder. Next morning we walked around lake union, beautiful lake views and all yachts, Love it!

Overall excellent experience. Room quality cleanliness and comfort was exceptional. A huge bonus was complimentary parking which I don't find in most comparable hotels. Add proximity to local bus and streetcar and you have unbeatable hotel accommodations.

We stayed 4 nights at the Lake Union location, and truly enjoyed our stay. The breakfast was wonderful and the housekeeping staff was always pleasant and helpful.

The good: rooms are larger than the norm, nice breakfast included, decent fitness room, convenient shuttle to Pike Place Mkt (where parking is a costly challenge) and the shuttle van drivers (esp. Ken) are very informative and super helpful, reasonably well located, nice, modern feel. The bad: rooms can be a bit noisy (one had a loudly rattling heater), some...

Location away from the downtown area is great, parking included in room price is awesome! Great nights sleep, hot tub great, breakfast good! Can take shuttle to areas near the hotel without having to drive. Felt safe, confident about parking in a gated area. Price was good for location, free wifii and free parking.
