The Mayflower Park Hotel, built in 1927, offers historic, yet restored accommodations near the Space Needle and Pike Place Market. It’s also situated near Seattle’s Light Rail Station, with easy access to and from Sea-Tac International Airport.
The hotel offers 160 guestrooms — 29 of which are suites — with king and queen beds, plus deep soaking tubs and free Wi-Fi. Up to two children under 17 stay free of charge with parents.
An onsite restaurant, Andaluca, is also available to guests, and Oliver’s Lounge (also onsite) serves delicious cocktails for parents.

The staff at the front desk was very friendly and welcoming. The concierge was very knowledgable and we were able to use his suggestions to make adjustments to our plans that worked out very well. The rooms are good in the sense that the bed was comfortable. We were on the 7th floor facing the road. It was not very noisy except when an ambulance or fire truck passed by with their sirens blaring. The restroom was really small; especially the way the commode was placed between the tub and the wall, I can imagine the trouble a tall 250 pound person would go through trying to use it.
The best thing about the hotel is that it is barely a few minutes away from the Pike Place Market. You can access the train and the monorail through the hotel without actually stepping out. We didn't eat at their restaurants as they said The Oliver does not serve people with kids (we were traveling with a toddler). So even though we always make it a point to dine inside the hotel or order room service, we didn't do so this time. No regrets though as the food outside the hotel was pretty good, so we actually saved some money. :)
Overall, I would recommend this hotel for its location and access to major tourist spots around Downtown Seattle.
The Mayflower Park Hotel is a beautiful hotel conveniently located to shopping, restaurants, and the lite-rail in downtown Seattle. The grounds are immaculate, the rooms are spacious, and the beds are super comfy. The customer service leaves something to be desired. NO one acknowledges your presence or even welcomes you, or makes you feel welcome for that matter. I'm not a person who needs a great deal of attention, but a smile or nod would have been nice.
