We were going out on a cruise and had 2 nights in Seattle before heading off. We could have grabbed a taxi in from the airport but instead opted for the train. It was then only a 15 minute walk to the hotel. Not for everyone, but interesting experience and a darn sight cheaper. The hotel location is pretty good. There are a lot of street people in the area and whilst everything was fine if you're not used to this, like us, it can be a little disconcerting.
Staff were great on arrival. Very friendly. Got us checked in quickly and explained everything. The downstairs area is quirky but it worked. Our hotel room was fine. A little on the dark side and zero view. Oh well. It seemed to be stuffed with stuff you could buy....mmmm.
Breakfast was spot on. Everything was kept refreshed and a pretty good choice....no Cheerios though !!!! And what happened to the afternoon pineapple cupcakes???????as promised.
We had a drink in the bar and again the staff were very friendly. We would have had a bite to eat one night but the choice was pretty dire. Checkout good. Price we thought for our stay was reasonable. We got the hotel shuttle down to the docks for 10 dollars each which was good.
Overall, worked for us for the short stay.
Room small - desk space for using laptop was extremely limited when competing with coffee pot, cups, coffee and condiments. When leaving, all though dead, found evidence of flies on mattress, quantity-3.
