Outside and lobby appearance are quite misleading. They both looked inviting and clean. When arriving into my room I was quite saddened with the room appearance as the bathroom was not clean for hotel standards. There was left over scum around the sink on the wooden panels, which was pretty disgusting. The bathtub was grimey around the drain, which left... More

Stayed at this hotel on a short business trip and was very pleased. Fabulous location, close to shopping and Pikes Market. The hotel was under some construction so the elevators were a problem with waits up to 15 minutes; one elevator usually working at a time. Beds were VERY comfortable and the staff was amazing.

The only issue during this trip were due to the elevators. There were issues with the only 2 working elevators during my stay which equated to long wait times for the elevator and even one instance in which we were forced to the stairs. All other aspects of the stay were excellent and I understand they were working to rectify... More

My one complaint here was room service. I ordered eggs bennedict and they gave it to me in a to-go box with plastic silverware. The box was huge so when I opened it I could barely cut into my food. Not to mention the plastic silverware made it extremely difficult to cut anything at all. I am disappointed that this... More

Have always wanted to spend Thanksgiving downtown and roll out of bed in the morning to enjoy the parade. Motif made this an awesome experience! The location of Motif is hard to beat and really loved the late check-out opportunity of 2 p.m.

The hotel is very beautiful but the quality of what your getting is not the price. Bed was hard, sheets scratchy, the tub is outdated, your paying a resort fee for items included at other hotels. I would not recommend stay here as your money would be better spent at a cheaper hotel that has better quality.
