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.

We recently stayed at this property along with four other couples the night before we were cruising to Alaska. The location of this hotel was less than 10 minutes from the dock where the cruise ships depart for Alaska, so it was a good choice for us. The hotel had a very nice lobby and common area with a waterfall...

The front desk staff, particularly Karlea were so polite and helpful. The lobby opens up into an atrium with a big waterfall. Our room was beautiful and roomy. The full kitchen is very convenient. The views of Lake Union and the Space Needle were lovely. Full breakfast is included with eggs, potatoes, meat, pancakes, waffles, fruit, yogurt, muffins, bagels, cereal,...

I stayed in a 2 bedroom for one night in August. The room was very clean, and the beds fantastic! The front desk staff was helpful around the clock. Morning buffet breakfast was nice. Good location in Seattle, where some of the neighborhoods leave a lot to be desired.
