    Made to feel very welcome, breakfast amazing, all the staff friendly & very helpful

    Didn't realise it was in the same area as the "red light district" but that said we felt ver safe and the Area is not in your face unless you go looking for it

    Room was much larger than appeared in pictures. Fridge in room was unexpected. Good TV and comfortable reading chairs, good breakfast. Parking fee was cheaper than most downtown hotels.

    Yes, the bed was uncomfortable and there was duct tape holding up the light fixtures in bedroom. Need better lighting on the short stair cases between the half levels in parking garage.

    Great location near Pike Place Market and Museum

    • Average rating
  • Older travelers

    Location, price, nice staff, convenient parking, hot cookies in lobby, clean, rooms are extra large. Breakfast actually isn't bad, daily paper a nice touch. Fireplace, windows that open, and dark curtains all a bonus.

    No wifi, had to go back to lobby to get wire (which was partially broken). Quality has gone downhill since last visit. Bed pillows were a strange tiny size as if they'd been cut in half. Some fixtures and electrical sockets not secured to wall. They offer free cds/dvds, but there are no players for such. Only tried one clock/radio, but radio didn't work. The stated complimentary sodas were water.

    Parking was the only bad experience. It needs to be more clearly marked in such a cavernous garage which is open to the public.

    Really good value for the price. Great location. Fine amenities. all around nice place to stay. I would stay again.

    Room location and parking location was confusing - was it north west tower, south east...where am I? etc. A clear map might help

    Directions to parking not complete enough.

    Staff was great.

    You advertise a Full English Breakfast, which was one of the things that I was looking forward o.The breakfast served is in no way an English Breakfast. I thought I would get on and it was not there.The Hoel should not advetise a Full English Breakfast.

    The location was superb--a block from Pike St. Market and across from Seattle Art Museum. It was cool to be in an apartment building; breakfasts were delicious and I liked the idea of afternoon hors d'oeuvres, too: a nice touch. Newspaper outside the room was appreciated, and the view of a courtyard was sweet. Also appreciated overhead fan.

    Lighting was not good -- I needed two lamps just to read in bed. Not having wireless could have been a deal-breaker, but they offered a cable hook-up when I asked.
