The rooms were a nice size, and the front desk was friendly. The bathrooms need more attention with cleanliness. Request were sometimes not met in a timely manner. If four people are in the room, you definitely need to leave more than 3 washcloths/towels.

sadly, the website made th3e hotel room look much better than it was. Our room was disheveld and had no cups, no coffee except decaf, and they charged me 12.50 for that. Also, parking was 45 dollars for one overnight, and I was presented no information on that, or offered a parking package when I booked the stay, or checked...

I had a great time and is only a few blocks from pike place and the mall. The staff is friendly, however when leaving we got hit with a ton of hidden fees and that was annoying cause it was way more than the after tax end fee

The Motif hotel in Seattle was nicely located with Pike's market, shopping street's and the water all on walking distance. The room and bathroom were good. There was some ladies making noise in the hall way in the middle of the night, but that can happen every where - especially given it was St Patrick's day. Friendly staff and check...

Room was quite cool and the thermostat was down; heat wasn't running but they were right on top of sending up extra blankets and a space heater to make sure I slept well. Rugs needed vacuuming (construction on site?) and vents badly need to be cleaned! Toilet needed brushing, vending machine on my floor was gutted. I would have loved...

I know we hear about the importance of those 3 repeated words all the time, but based on my experience, the Motif has it. It is located 2 blocks from Westlake Station, 1.5 blocks from the convention center, and 5 blocks from Pike Place market. There are many eateries and shops between the Motif and any of those locations. I...

Current updates are amazing. Location location location. Wine tasting a great time to mingle. Folic a little pricey, but good food. Because of the popular outside area, it gets cold inside from guests going in and out.

I liked my room, but difficult to get a feel for the hotel considering all of the interior construction. Parking was a mess, but friendly service. It was nice that we got to use gold's gym because the hotel gym was under construction.

Since it's right in the center of downtown Seattle, this hotel was a great stay while I was at the convention center. It's so close to Pikes Place and other funky locations nearby. With all the good coffee nearby, I drank as much espresso as possible. I especially appreciated how the staff gave real recommendations and were honest about their...
