I really enjoyed staying at Motif. The rooms were great, they're pet friendly and the location is pretty central to downtown, shopping, and the waterfront. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. There was complimentary wine tasting in the evening while we were there. We also had a catered happy hour event for our group and the appetizers were...

Nice room. Friendly and accommodating staff. Great location. My only comment here is that expedia price is much lower than when we walk in to the hotel front desk and ask for the rate. When we ask the front desk why the rate is higher than the rate we're seeing on expedia site that moment on the phone, he said...

Great place for a quick trip to Seattle! Take the Light Rail to downtown--best $3.00 transportation deal around. Walk two blocks to the hotel and arrive in your own little world of peace and tranquility! Staff from check in to leaving is friendly and welcoming. Go to the wine tasting-Genevieve did a great job serving--but realize there is alot better...

I was there for a medical convention which they clearly were prepared for in any way necessary; space, food, rooms, service. It is very central and many things do within a 3 block radius if you would like. The rooms were very comfortable. I had arrived extremely late as my connection was missed but had a great uber driver take...
