Great for a practical business stay
Posted Oct 25, 2016
We stayed here for our anniversary on the recommendation of a couple friends. As a romantic hotel stay, I would not recommend. The room itself was fine, but nothing special. It DEFINITELY seems fitted for individuals on business (nice desk, internet access, conference rooms, easy access to downtown business districts). The bathroom was the highlight, with a deep tub as well as a shower which was nice. But the bed was fairly uncomfortable (no pillow-top mattress or nice bedding), and the "Elliott Bay views" they boast of are barely seen through the other buildings downtown. It was also REALLY loud -- we could clearly hear the lady in the room next to us talking and laughing with a friend; and every time she'd open and close her door the entire wall/headboard of the bed would shake and bang. Frankly, I felt like we wasted our money since we payed extra for this room (noise + lack of view). If you are looking for a nice central place to stay for business, this would be a nice choice. But as an "experience" -- look elsewhere.
One thing I will say, the staff was courteous and generous. They sent up a bottle of champagne and a couple chocolates for us on the house to help us celebrate our anniversary. Thoughtful!
