Unusually, most rooms had a small balcony, not wide enough to sit out on but allowed fresh air and a wide view if your room was high enough. We had a corner room which had double aspect windows which was even better. The room was large and clean with comfortable beds (only one of which we used) the en-suite was also clean and fresh.
There was a bar and restaurant attached to which locals had access and was reasonably well used which we took as a good sign. We ate breakfast there each morning which were very good and served at your table. It was a nice change from the usual buffet breakfast.
The monorail ran along the street at the corner but it was a 10 min walk to the terminus and the terminus or the space needle were the only places to get on or off. It cost a dollar to take the 10min monorail ride and was more a fun tourist ride than local public transport.
It was only a 15min walk to Pike Place market and the waterfront on Puget Sound. The walk to the waterfront had to cross the Alaskan Way viaduct and then Alaskan Way, both very busy roads and consequently very noisy.
The only downside of the few days we spent in Seattle was that there were quite a few people 'in reduced circumstances' asking you for money and businesses closed, much more than when we were last in the states about 5 years ago - I guess its the result of the recession.
