        • Plus the location is great, short walk to Space Needle and the breakfast area is designed for a much smaller hotel.

        • The reasonable price for convenient overnight parking was a strong attraction, the hotel was comfortable and clean, and had a heated indoor pool and small gym, the staff were friendly and helpful. The light on the outside of the bathroom was aggravating and the breakfast was good and there was a wide variety to choose from.

          The bed in our room was very uncomfortable.

        • Good value in City Center, a great hotel and not a bad price. Extremely friendly and helpful staff, comfortable beds. The curtains don't block light adequately and free breakfast. Hard boiled eggs and superb Choice.

          The only way i would stay here again would be to have a room high up and away from the trucks.
