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.

- Convenient location in lower Queen Anne
- Full kitchens with sitting areas
- Short distance to downtown Seattle
An old hotel with big old fashioned rooms. Included bedroom, lounge area, Kitchenette as well as an old but decent bathroom. Location is good for the Space needle and an $8 taxi. Ride from the town centre
We stayed 2 nights. The Location is good. Staff is very friendly and breakfast is quite great. The rooms are very large. But the furniture (bed)and espacially the bathroom need a make over. As you need these facilities most, it‘s quite essential for feeling comfortable during your stay, that they are appealing. There‘s no charme in taking a shower from a construction that allows only questionable water pressure.
