Stayed here for a Friday & Saturday night prior to a conference in downtown Seattle. Had wanted to visit an area outside the city that would compliment the downtown experience & found the lakefront setting & nearby wineries appealing.
Checked in around 10pm at night after about a half-hour drive from Seatac. Initial impressions were that it was a nice hotel. Initial impression of the room was that it was freezing cold (a/c set all the way down!) & the view really stunk (rooftop)...no sign of the lake from our room. I realize everyone can't have a fabulous view & I didn't book an upgrade but I'm just saying...we were disappointed. Went to the lounge area for a beverage...decent crowd & saw that a wedding tent was set up on the lawn in front of the hotel. LOVED that there was a fire going in the fireplace...even tho it was mid summer, it was still chilly (especially to us visiting from the southeastern US). After I got back to the room & looked through hotel literature, I realized they had the "raid the pantry" thing going on while we had been at the lounge....I wish they had brought that to our attention because after 8 hours of flying & a late arrival, it would have been a nice welcome to be offered a late night snack! I did not see any literature in the bar area itself either....
Weddings were going on most of the time throughout our stay...sort of took over the lawn area but it was ok.
I was wishing they had an outdoor firepit but maybe that is not allowed in the area?
I was not thrilled about paying for parking & they had not given us a ticket for the self-parking area so the garage attendant gave us a hassle & couldn't/wouldn't call the front desk to confirm that we were guests.
Complimentary morning coffee was nice & the restaurant (Beach Cafe?) had a nice vibe & view but the carpet was very stale, stained & smelled. Decided not to eat here because of that.
Overall, it was a decent stay but not all that "special".
