Motif Seattle is a great boutique-style hotel in a convenient location. Restaurants and shopping are all within walking distance, as is Conference Center. Monorail is 2 blocks away for a trip to Space Needle & MoPOP. Pike's Market is a short walk and we even walked to and from CenturyLink Field for the Seahawks game. Clean rooms, comfortable beds, great...

The guest room, function space and restaurant are above average. The reception I attended on the Frolic Patio is excellent. The hotel is having issues with the elevators. The housekeeping staff was using the guest elevators making guest elevators very slow. Waiting for 10 minutes on the 12th floor elevator landing on (3) different occasions.

This hotel is in the best location - walkable to restaurants, Pike's market and a quick cab ride from the airport. The rooms are clean and updated, love the boutique-y vibe. Staff was warm and helpful.

minor irritants at accessibility for beverage and watching football. Room was clean, lobby and outside portion very clean and welcoming. Mini fridge was frozen open and not a fan of the resort fee of $12.95 for wifi (thought was free at this location) water and wine tasting (wasn't able to make use of this)

The location of this hotel is its saving grace; its close to everything in Seattle. But our trip started off on the wrong foot with a snooty front desk agent who couldn't even be bothered to explain the features of the hotel to us. The rooms are nicely appointed but the walls are ridiculously thin and when someone flushes the...

The location is great right down town, The staff is great. Our bathroom was dirty...... The parking garage is too low for a pickup. The in house restaurant was reserved each night for a private party.

I have nothing bad to say about the hotel or their staff. We have stayed here before and had very pleasant experience. We have a 2 year old at home so don't get out very often and when we do we want ultimate relaxation. We often times order room service for breakfast rather than going out because it is so...

Great location to Pike's Marketplace and transportation options. Staff were pleasant and professional. Room wasn't quite what we expected. Had a west spot on carpet. Shower didn'the drain properly and water ended up on entire floor. Did NOT expect nightly amenities fee.
