Pros: Beautiful hotel
Cons: No free wifi, parking is expensive, very limited tv channels
Location: Very close to downtown shopping and the freeway
The room was beautiful, great view. I enjoyed the amenities and updated features in the bathroom. Free wifi and better parking options would be a plus.

Nice hotel, great location

Posted Oct 10, 2016
Pros: we upgraded our room and suggest you do so - the room was very comfortable
Cons: WiFi is not included which is odd - I did mention this during my stay and it was amended but hate having to ask.
Location: Shuckers, the hotel restaurant was the BEST food we had all trip. And Jay our server is a great waiter!

Elegant!

Posted Oct 10, 2016
Location: Avoid the hill and use Pike street to 5th ave. After the usual attractions, take the water taxi from Pier 50 to West Seattle for pizza at Pegasus.
Nice, large bathroom. Lots of electrical outlets and lots of light. Very quiet. Within walking distance of everything.

Sounds as if you quickly learned to navigate our great city. Our central location does make much of the downtown Seattle are very accessible and walk-able. After all that walking you need a comfortable Guest Room and we are pleased to have provided that for you. Thank you for choosing to stay with us and for writing.

Wonderful!

Posted Oct 5, 2016
Location: Location is great. We walked to most places such as Pikes Market, the Great Wheel, first Starbucks and lots of shopping.
The location was perfect, We walked to most places while we enjoyed the views of the city. When we needed transportation all modes were close by. I can't say enough about the hotel staff, they were wonderful and over the top helpful. Our room was very nice and roomy, we had 4 people in our room and had plenty of space. The bathroom was very nice and stocked with all things needed. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again and plan to do so soon.

Very nice hotel. Close to downtown sights.

Posted Sep 23, 2016
Pros: Very good location. One block from the train that we took from the airport. Beautiful room.
Cons: If our room had been ready when we arrived it would have been nice. We were offered an upgrade at our cost. A free upgrade would be better.
Location: The hotel is within easy walking distance of Pike Market, the train to Safeco Field and shopping.
This is a very lovely hotel. The room was beautiful. Very roomy and comfortable. The linens on the bed are very nice. Wifi in the room and easy log in in great. The only negative was that we arrived at 11:00 a.m. And couldn't get into our room until after 3:30 p.m. Reception does have an efficient texting system of letting you know when your room is ready, though.

Great Hotel, close to everything

Posted Sep 8, 2016
This is a beautiful hotel and is withing walking distance to the Pikes Market Place and the seashore. The tram is within walking distance that will get you to the Space Needle and the other main tourist sites. There are lots of places to eat within walking distance if you don't want to eat in the hotel.

Very nice old hotel in a great location.

Posted Sep 7, 2016
Pros: Location and great Expedia rate.
Cons: Why can I get free high speed WiFi in any cheap Motel 6 or BurgerKing or Starbucks.... And a high class like this wants a hefty fee everyday? Get real
Location: Near multiple cafes, pubs and restaurants. Walk to Pike Market, museums, monorail, shopping centers. Nice clean area.
Easy check in. Excellent staff. Close to everything downtown.
