      Large and clean room, and nice view of the bay.

      When using wireless internet, do not select strong wave access point which is too slow. If you select weak wave access point, the speed will be no more a problem.

      Excelent location Downtown, at walking distance to main streets and attractions such as Public Market, shopping spots, theater etc. Large, clean and comfortable room.

      Front desk personnel very unfriendly, or should I say rude. The one who attended us at check-in seemed to make efforts to be unpleasant. No "good evening", no "welcome" at all, and simple questions seem to deeply bother them, they clearly want to get rid of you quickly.

      Location and general ambience.

      I wished the lighting in the room was better. I would have liked to have more options for the TV( ie. movies) The system for the TV. was difficult to figure out.

      The location of this hotel is just great, right downtown and the views of Puget Sound at sunset are wonderful

      The décor is a little dated and dark. The hallways in particular are really drab and sparsely decorated for a hotel of this quality.

      On check in we were not given the room booked and I had to go back to desk to ask for it.I was easily handled, but embarassing to have to ask.Would have liked to have opening windows, but no biggie

      The location's great and the front desk staff was terrific.

      There were no drinking glasses in the room. The renovation is starting to wear a bit, nicks on a lot of things. That was not a major issue but an observation that management may wish to address.

      I asked for a late check out because I had a 2:00 job interview and they accomodated me. They also said they would hold my bags for the day. The food in the Garden Terrace restaurant was good too. The room had a regular sized hair dryer.

      I heard alot of city noise --I'm from a small town
