              Very dirty place, over priced, dull, staff not helpfull and worn carpet, worn furniture, ancient bathroom. My 12 year old son loved the indoor pool.

              Extremely poor value for the money and overpriced parking rate $30 per day. The sttaf at the front desk was very rude and beds were very uncomfortable. I noticed in the restaurant carpeting that was worn and stained.

              The Seattle city jail is less than a block away.

              Menu at r view is limited and the underground parking lot is not great. Worst hotel experience ever and car park charge is expensive. The furniture is worn as are the carpets, elevators are not clear.
