This is our first trip to Seattle so I have no local comparison point, but in my opinion, for a 2-bedroom @ $250'ish/night, the room is very, very basic. I'm just mostly angry about the view thing. We chose this hotel because we were told we would have a water view. Instead we're going to spend the next three nights...

We stayed here for a week and had a nice stay. Check in was pretty smooth, but when we got to our room we were a bit disappointed as it over looked the construction outside. We asked to be moved but were told because we were using Marriott points that was what we got, have to say being a Marriott...

What a disappointment! Having read the great reviews (and being M-card holders) we were looking forward to this stay. Furniture in living room was visibly tattered in several locations (all pieces), insects and other residue on walls (particularly at the ceiling). Renovations down the hall were noisy, and began shortly after 8:00am and went into the evening - we requested...

Stayed here with my husband for four nights in a long touring holiday of the west. We like to self cater as we're vegetarian and generally the evening /manager's receptions are no good to us, but seem very much appreciated by most guests. Good kitchen as usual, but no oven, just microwave and two ringed hob. No problems checking in...

Have stayed here before, and this time I noticed a difference in staff attitudes - very positive and welcoming - and a real focus on satisfaction. I still am creeped out about the pets welcome policy - but they are definitely kicking it up a notch!! Stayed 2 nights, enjoyed the many breakfast choices - keep it up!!

We started our 13 day Pacific NW tour here. We were taking Kenmore Air to Victoria the next day so we wanted something close to them. The room had a real nice kitchenette with a full size fridge and a separate bedroom. We had complementary soup and salad that night in the lobby and a hot breakfast the next morning....

I stayed here for a business trip to Seattle. Great breakfast buffet every morning, dog friendly hotel, close to marina, lots of good restaurants within walking distance. Clean suite, full kitchenette, separate bed room with bath. Very friendly front desk staff on all shifts, set up airport transit, called cabs for us, and recommenced dining venues for our group. Thanks!

We stayed at this hotel in september 2013 with our daughter. Everything was perfect: parking easy, large rooms ( we had a 2 bedrooms suite ), comfortable beds, breakfast with a large choice of foods. It is also near the Space Needle ans others attractions. We enjoyed it very much.

Six of us stayed here before and after our Alaskan cruise. Front desk staff was very helpful with great attitudes too! Here are a few bullets: -No taxis, but they do have a very good town car service. -light rail right across the street will take you to as far as the Westin Seattle, but if you take the #70...
