The Marqueen comes recommended more for location than for kid-friendly amenities per se; for example, the lack of an elevator, and first floor rooms that share a corridor with the local retail stores, could present some issues for folks with young children. The lower Queen Anne location is exceptional, however, with the Seattle Center just a short walk away; a Dick’s Restaurant, Pagliacci Pizza and a great Mexican restaurant right across the street; and the stellar Easy Street Records, which in my experience has not one bad CD in the store, right around the corner. For the strong-legged like our boy, the Kerry Viewpoint is right up the hill. Avoid the first floor rooms in the back of the hotel, which look out into the bottom of an airshaft.

Historical building and staffed by warm, polite people. Large rooms, clean and comfortable. Sound sleep. Very nice shops and restaurants in the lovely area. An alternative to the downtown bustle. Very good value, comfortable bar. We visit Seattle twice yearly and loved our stay.
Located in a historic building, the Marqueen was originally a garage, later apartments, now a boutique hotel. Located near the Space Needle, walking distance, and the Chihuallh Glass Museum. Rooms are actually suites with bath and kitchen. Moderately priced with friendly staff.
