This was our first trip to Seattle and this location was directly selected based upon tripadvisor reviews and the willingness of manager David Watkins to respond to comments.We knew that the hotel stay for us, was going to be at least 60/70 percent of our overall experience to Seattle. So, we wanted location, location and an ability to just hang out and enjoy the views. Turned out, the weather was great and the location only enhanced our walking experience to everything "downtown".
Not sure if I can mention room #'s or not but there are 2 rooms that have very private access to an incredible balcony. The "common area" hotel balcony on the 5th floor is amazing enough but if you want an extra special touch, spend the extra $$ and get 1 of the 2 rooms on the 7th floor that have private access to a huuggee balcony that is only accessible to said 2 rooms.
Overall, this was a lot of money for us on a room but in retrospect, it was worth every single nickel and I kinda feel like I should send them a few more $$.
Highlights for us on the staff were, Landon, Paulie and Katie. Staff even confirmed and verified (hi Katie) a craigslist ticket purchase that I made to a Seahawks game.
Stay here now if you want the ultimate Seattle experience (rain or shine)!
One very small complaint worth mentioning is that "Post Alley" can get a little rowdy on the weekends so light sleepers could have an issue with some late night/early morning noise if your visit is close to the weekend.
