Stayed 2 days & 2 nights. Arrived early 9am after check out from cruise ship. A warm welcome, efficient check in and beautiful corner room with separate lounge room and a nice view. The bed was comfortable & the rooms kept clean. We checked in & stored our bags & headed off into Seattle. So close to everything. Shops very close & not too far to Pike Markets, Also walked to the Discovery Park one day & Chinatown the next. Also went up Columbia Centre Sky View Observatory. The main shops were close by and enjoyed slipping across the road to Macy's & around the corner to Saks Off 5th and other shops as well. We had dinner one night in Olivers & although the menu wasn't large, we had a nice meal at a reasonable price. The service was good. . The door attendants, porters & staff were always happy & friendly. I would stay in this hotel again & recommend it to friends.
Great location. Downtown but not too noisy. Handy for light rail , monorail, shopping & walking distance to waterfront & Pike Place market.
Staff friendly & efficient. Hotel is historic & has a cosy ambience. We stayed here twice at beginning & end of our trip. We had a corner suite on 12th floor the first time. It was nicely furnished & it was useful to have separate living room.
The bedroom itself was small & not well designed. The furniture was too big for the room. There was room for 2 small bedside tables but instead there was one large one. Quite annoying.
The second time we had a deluxe room on the 7th floor. I actually preferred it. It had 3 windows & was light & airy. And the view was better. The view from the 12th floor was of ugly air conditioning units on the top of nearby buildings.
The only negatives in both rooms were the bathrooms. They could do with an upgrade, some storage for toiletries & somewhere to hang wet towels. Historic hotels can have modern well designed bathrooms that are in keeping with the age of the building.
The hotel kept our luggage for us after checkout. The taxi they arranged to airport was cheaper than an Uber. It was $40 (Uber quoted $65 but that varies by time of day). We would have used light rail but we had found that tricky with heavy luggage.
All in all we were happy with our choice. It was quite expensive but everything in Seattle is!
