La Residence Suite Hotel
Ranked #22 of 29 Hotels in Bellevue
Reviewed 30 July 2014

This is the one place where my wife didn't want me to write a review because she wants to keep it for herself. The rooms are full suites like little apartments and usually used by business people on visits of more than one day. It is located in the heart of Bellevue across the street from Bellevue Square and close to Old Downtown Bellevue. We stay here over Christmas and other times during the year when we visit Ann's mom. I don't think you can beat the amount of space you get for the price. We certainly haven't found any better and we have the advantage of Ann's mom and sister living in the area.

Room Tip: You can use the outside upper level patio for BBQ.

My son, d in law, toddler grand daughter and I stayed here recently for 4 nights,visiting family in the area. From other reviews I was expecting shabby chique but our 2 bedroom apartment was elegant yet homey, very large and up to date. And it was air conditioned (90 degrees each day we were there).

The price was amazing. A tiny 1 bedroom suite at the Westin was over twice the price. Plus we had free internet (and it was very reliable) and free parking. The kitchen has dishes, etc., a full size fridge/freezer, dishwasher and stove. Even granite counter top.

It is close to everything in downtown Bellevue. If you have little ones, be sure to walk 1 block south to the Downtown Park playground and/or go to the 3rd floor at Bellevue Square (mall across the street) for a free play area.

Finally, the service made us feel at home. Very welcoming and accommodating. We asked for an extra coffee pak (4 cup coffee maker) and they brought us 4 within minutes. We have already made reservations for Thanksgiving.

La Residence was an excellent choice for comfort and space. I only needed one night, but was pleased with the accommodations. The front desk staff were friendly and even had their first wine tasting event on the night that I stayed. The rooms were converted from old apartments, so you definitely feel at home with separate kitchen, living and sleeping quarters. There was also a nice patio area on the third floor where I decided to have my breakfast.

The only complaint I had was with the street noise. I was in room #34 and it was ridiculously loud throughout most of the night! If you're a light sleeper, definitely ask for a room on the other side of the hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms on the street side are very loud at all hours of the night. Ask for a room on the other side...

Stayed in the hotel one night after reading the reviews. The reviews are right on: the hotel is a little dated, but it is reasonably priced, has a cosy feel and is clean enough. Enjoyed the location next to a mall and a couple of blocks from downtown Bellevue. Parking is easy and free. The living room could use some brighter lights. Would definitely stay here again.

After much searching for a reasonably priced hotel in Bellevue, we found La Residence. It is a cute, old apartment building close to shopping. If you are in a budget, the kitchen is fully equipped and there are grocery stores within walking distance. When daily tasks were accomplished, we enjoyed walking across the street and through a parking garage to get to a very large mall. The only warning about this place is don't try to park in front of the hotel because it is a tight squeeze. There is plenty of parking on the sides and in the back.

I first stayed at this hotel because of the close proximity to the Bellevue Arts Museum ArtsFair, where I have been an exhibitor for the past six or seven years, and have stayed there each year since. It is an older building - my guess is that it might have originally been built as apartments in the 30s or 40s - It has that kind of retro ambiance, which I find both charming and comfortable. Each hotel room in the four story building (to my knowledge) has a combination living room/dining room, bedroom, bath and galley-style kitchen equipped with the basic kitchenware necessary to prepare meals. There is wifi and television with cable. There is sufficient parking for guests in the front and back of the hotel. There is an elevator as well as stairs. There is excellent daily maid service. I understand that they are in the process of updating the rooms floor by floor. There is one main reservation desk on the first floor with very helpful & friendly staff. This hotel feels comfortable and convenient. I like it so much that I make reservations a year in advance as there are not hundreds of rooms, just four stories of apartments, some of which are rented out monthly or to longer term residents.

Stayed here on Thursday and Friday nights. The main draw was the location. Cannot be beat for the price. The place was very clean and very quiet. And parking is free. Walking distance to a lot of great restaurants and bars. Best recommendation for Happy Hour is 520 Bar and Grill on Main Street. Excellent service and great wines. And the nachos with steak were fantastic!

Back to the hotel...We were in unit 36 on the 3rd of 4 floors and it faced the street. Could hear the traffic noise with the windows open, but not with them closed. Traffic died out at night, so not an issue for sleeping.

Kitchen was small, but had full sized appliances and full set of cookware. There was a separate dining room with seating for 4. The living room had full size sofa and 1 winged chair and there was a widescreen TV. Bedroom had a king bed, large walk-in closet, and the bathroom was large with full sized tub/shower. No TV in the bedroom. Only complaint about the bedroom is that the headboard with attached tables was mounted very low so that the bedside tables were about a foot below the top of the bed. Kind of strange, but at least there were bedside tables.

Breakfast was definitely the high carb variety, but the coffee was good. If you want cooked to order, again, there are lots of options within walking distance.

If you want a full service hotel at twice the price, we've stayed at the Hyatt and it is very nice. But next time I'm staying in downtown Bellevue, it will be back at La Residence.
