“Fantastic Place!”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

Wow, I loved this place. Cozy and clean. The room had a very cozy and fresh feel to it, the lobby was very inviting, and the staff...super friendly! The breakfast was also delicious. I highly reccomend this place. The bathroom was a shared one, but they were private and very clean. I also liked how they had soft music playing inside. The shower was great, and they have nice smelling soaps you can use. After travelling in central america for four months, this was a great luxury for me.

I really enjoyed Ace Hotel, as a previous backpacker at hostels who has now grown out of that I was still looking for a good deal and Ace Hotel is it. Great rates for shared bathrooms (of which their are MANY and all sparkling clean. The room was clean and charming, the staff pleasant and the breakfast FANTASTIC - there are waffles and so much more!

It's in a great location, near downtown, only 15 min. walk to Pike Market and on the main street.

Only one flaw, this historic building has thin walls.

A small hotel is a great location. within walking distance to most places you would want to see in Seattle. Very clean and well put together. It is a place for adults, nothing really there is keep a child busy. The watering hole at the bottom of the stairs also is a pretty good, local place with good food and drink.

Room Tip: Parking in the neighborhood is very expensive, but they will help you. If you are just there to see...

The small hotel is set up in a way where guests have access to a variety of services without always needing to call the desk (free coffee, access to laundry, etc...). That said, staff are very friendly, knowledgable and great ambassadors - not only for the Ace company for for the city of Seattle. Location is ideal. Near Pike Place Market, Experience Music Project and lots of other attractions. Rooms are comfortable and the bathroom is makes good use of the small space. Our room had a nice view of the water. Will definitely return.

This is a small boutique hotel centrally located in Belltown and great restaurants, shopping, bars, and the famous Pike Place Market is within walking distance. The hotel has a great minimalistic and clean decor throughout. The rooms were clean and had a super comfy bed. The shared bathrooms were always super clean. The hotel offers WiFi and a nice complimentary breakfast. The best part of this hotel was the staff. Everyone was super friendly and super helpful. Ed, Mel, and Nathan always had a smile on and offered great recommendations for restaurants and local bars. We wanted to explore different neighborhoods in the city and Ed gave us some great advice and tips. We are coming back to Seattle early next year and we are definitely going to stay at Ace again. I cannot find anything to complain about this hotel and its staff, so I give it an A all the way!

I went to Seattle to for fun and a mission to lock down a neighborhood I'd be comfortable looking for from Chicago primarily. I stayed at the Ace and was so happy I did. I loved the staff there. Ed, Mel and Nathan were so helpful with everything from directing us in many great directions ultimately helping us decide on where we'll be looking to move to. They also had great recommendations on places to eat, drink, and explore while in each neighborhood. I had a great time in Seattle and very happy I stayed here. It's located in the ideal spot to get around to many places just walking. If you're not into the bathroom sharing then they offer places with private. In all honesty, it's not hostel type restrooms. There are like 5 of them on the floor and they are immaculate and I never waited to use one. It's a non-issue. Honestly, I even loved the products they used in the restrooms. I didn't ask, but I bet they were a local purveyor. Besides, you have a sink, and everything in your room. It was an adorable place and I loved my time there. Thanks again!!!

Room Tip: Perhaps request a view of water, if available ..

The rooms were clean, interesting and functional.Stayed in a room with attached bathroom. The offer to put my friend 's room next to mine (as requested) on the 2nd night is truly appreciated. The breakfast was nice and the staff at dining area were helpful and friendly too. The one and only problem was the noice from the street when people were shouting loudly after a night out on Saturday.I guess,that can't be helped at times,if your room faces the sidewalk. The wifi was easy to connect and fast. Location wise,it was a short walk to the Space needle and shopping street ,Pike Street and the farmer's market.Even better,if you are taking the Victoria Clipper ferry to VictoriaBC.Don't even need a taxi as all you need is to walk down the slope(road).

Room Tip: Try to stay away from rooms facing the sidewalk or even the backstreet as the noise from garbage tru...
