We loved the updated rooms and how clean and fresh they were. Great location for shopping, Pike's Place, etc. We also loved the hotel restaurant, Frolik. Great food, service, fast, and nice specialty cocktails.

I really liked the location of this hotel. It was walking distance to Lola which is a great breakfast place! Pike place market was a few blocks way. They have a cool bar downstairs that had yummy bar food and dim lighting. The hotel rooms have great views of the downtown area. I would definitely stay here again.

Like I said we had to ask for the rollaway bed twice, ice machines broken on my floor and the next one where it should have been available. No hair dryer in our room. The parking was great how we came in and out.

Located nicely in the heart of Seattle Downtown, everything was within walking distance. However, random stuffs appear in the room wasn't a pleasant surprise. Also failed communication had lady cleaning our room before our "returned customer 2pm" check out time. So we had to wait there for her to finish cleaning before we can rest.

This was my second time staying at Motif Hotel in Seattle and both times I've had pretty good experiences. Aside from the hotel being fairly close to a lot of things (Light Rail station, the monorail to the Space Needle and Glass museum, and of course the Pike's Public Market, among many others) the staff was helpful and very nice....

Elevators were dreadful, slow and crowded and used by service personnel too. Heating unit was too loud to have on for any period of time so I would only run it when I was in the room for a short time. Machines at the gym were ok (treadmill, ellipticals) but very little available for weight training. Was a great location...

We usually dread coming into downtown Seattle for a function, but staying here at the Motif made it a very pleasant stay..and I know we will do this again for future trips! We go to the 5th for shows and this is just across the street so that is marvelous.

The staff, the rooms, the parking, it was all great! I would recommend this as a point of destination while in Seattle. Grabbing a cab, shopping all was very close to the hotel. The hotel elevator was quick and never too much of a wait time

The rooms in the hotel are nicely designed and kept clean. The biggest disappointment is the fee for early check-in of 50$ otherwise you must wait till 16:00. This is unacceptable for international guests, when you come to US at 12:00 or so tired after many hours of travelling. Also when switching hotels it is quite troublesome to pay such...

I like to start reviews with the positives: Ideal location, newly decorated (the carpets in the room were brand new), clean rooms, comfortable mattress, parking onsite for cars under 6'2" tall. The negatives: Hard pillows. No onsite parking if your car is over 6'2" high. There are only 2 car spaces in front on the street for arriving guests. No...
