I recently stayed at the Renton Holiday Inn on a business trip and found the accomodations to be outstanding. I was staying in Seattle area for a few days and wanted to spend the final night near SEATAC airport and thus selected this Hotel. I was provided a ride to the Airport at 5 AM without problems. The room I stayed in was very spacious, clean, and up to date. There was also a conceirge lounge with snacks and drinks provided at the end of the day. There is also a nice restaurant available onsite. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend staying at this Hotel and particularly if you are on the way to the Airport departing Seattle.

Room Tip: I stayed in an upper floor room and found it to be very spacious, clean, and up to date.

The lobby is deceiving , the rooms are dirty. In our room the wall paper was splitting in the bathroom, the mirror dirty, the floor tile/grout was very dirty, the towels (thank god we brought our own!) were dingy/brownish in color. On the other hand, that front desk staff was very, very nice and helpful!

we stayed for a night here for short stay in seattle.
this hotel is airport hotel so free shuttle from and to the airport which helps.
shuttle runs every half hour and by demand after 10pm.
restaurant at the hotel closes at 11pm .
its all american bar food type of place.
apple bees etc in walking distance.
rooms are outdated and carpet to the room makes it hard to roll your roller boards.
our shuttle in the morning was delayed by 10 mins.

The bldg is fairly old, and it shows in things like single pane windows, older bathroom fixtures etc, but everything in working order and clean. The room is not well lit, but clean. Beds excellent with lots of pillows, a small work desk with electrical outlets on the wall. A good size TV with many HD channels and HDMI inputs (if you bring your own entertainment). Internet is free (PW at front desk) - download speed is about 1 - 2 Mbs. Bathroom is clean. Towels of medium to high quality. Coffee maker and hair dryer in good working order. Room thermostat worked and the room was nice and warm. Breakfast was in the adjoining bar/grill and was fully cooked (eggs, bacon, french toast, potatoes etc) as well as cold (cereal, fruit, yogurt etc). Some room rates include free breakfast. The front desk staff was particularly welcoming and friendly. The lobby has a fire place and good furniture. A variety of shuttles serve the hotel. The location in Renton is easy on and off the interstate with a quick drive to the airport and downtown Seattle.

I've been a loyal member of another hotel chain for years, but have decided to expand my stays to other chains. I've stayed at enough Holiday Inns in recent months to know that this hotel is not what you'd expect from a Holiday Inn, and not in a good way. The hotel is in bad need of an update. The bathroom is very outdated, the counter top is chipping away, and you can see damage to almost every doorway and elevator. The pillows were lumpy as well. I didn't see too many other staff members, but I felt like I was more a burden to the hotel staff checking me in than a guest at the hotel. I'm not a high maintenance person, but when you travel as much as I do for work a nice smile and how do you do is always appreciated.

Overall, the hotel just felt a bit...seedy. I travel often for work and am by myself, so it's important to me to feel safe in a hotel. I've had good luck with the Holiday Inn brand in the past, so was disappointed when this hotel did not live up to the expectations. My mindset was "hurry up and go to sleep so you can get out of here."

Thank you for the time to provide the feedback. We have begun a process of updating the hotel and begun in the restaurant this past summer and we recognize that the guest rooms need attention as well. We appreciate your input about the hotel and apologize that we did not leave establish a better impression at check in. Thank you again for your thoughts.
