We wanted downtown Seattle and this hotel was far less than anything else and close to the light rail. When we found out that it was formerly the hospital hotel for visitors, my wife wanted to change the reservation, but never did.
It was a short but steep walk from the light rail. The rooms were newly decorated. We got a free upgrade. The beds and linens were very nice and comfy. Since it is on the budget side of the highway, there were all sorts of reasonably priced restaurants nearby. And it is a short walk to the waterfront.
We'd stay there again.

We traveled to Seattle for a medical procedure and I was so happy to have the option of the Inn at Virginia Mason for its very close proximity to the hospital. The other property is the Baroness where we also stayed and I will review separately.

We stayed at the Inn for about one week. The Inn staff were very kind and helpful, though we had to ask to get the room cleaned or at least clean towels a few times. Nonetheless the Inn is older but suited our needs quite well. We had a spacious room with a queen bed and a couch bed to sleep 3 adults and 1 child.

Room service was very affordable. The menu comes from the hospital (same food served to patients). Not bad, actually, there was quite a variety.

To sum up: if your priority is convenience to the Virginia Mason hospital, I recommend the Inn. The other option for you is the Baroness. The Inn is a bit newer and nicer, but you do not get a kitchenette here, it is more of a hotel.

Stayed for 11 days and had a great stay. The price was great and close to University of Seattle where we were getting our son ready to attend. We stayed in a Q/Q Suite and it was roomy and the beds very comfortable. I loved the location of the hotel, a couple of blocks from Pine Street, Pike Street and a few blocks from the center of downtown Seattle, easy to walk to places, restaurants, pubs, shopping and things to do in general. There is a rooftop area and you can see all of dowtown. We sat there a few nights and just enjoyed the evening. I was a little disappointed with the bathroom, they really need to be updated. The staff was very helpful, friendly and accomidating, can't say enough. The cleaning staff not so good, a few days we would come back to our room and the beds had not been made, no fresh towels. Overall our stay was really great, great location and great price. We would stay here again.

Room Tip: I think all rooms all locations would be fine.

Thank you for your recent review of our Inn. We will always be your affordable hotel option in Seattle. I have shared your feedback on the inconsistent housekeeping service with our team - it certainly was not our intention to provide you less then stellar service. University of Washington is a great school. . .thank you for letting us be your home away from home as you got your son settled for the coming school year!

I stayed at the inn when I went back to the Hospital for a post op visit. Customer service is great. The room has lots of storage and the bed was so comfy that I didn't want to get up! The food is delicious at the restaurant . Be sure to check out the courtyard.

A friend and I stayed here for three nights on a girls weekend. It’s tough to find a decently priced place in Seattle during the summer so we were pretty happy we found this place. Here is a rundown of the place…in a way I like to read reviews!

Rooms: We had two single beds which were really comfy. There was a TV that we never turned on but I’m sure it worked. The room was nice and chilly and I believe you have full control over the temperature. We asked for a quieter room and thankfully we got one because they were doing drilling on Spring Street and we didn’t hear a thing! Our room faced a small courtyard and windows into the hospital (opposite side of Spring St.) It’s a bit odd seeing patients through the window, but just don’t look! The bathroom is a bit out-dated with some peeling paint, but the shower was nice, the toilet flushed and the water was clean…don’t be a snob about it!

Price: It was decently priced in comparison to other places. We spent about $400 for three nights and we paid online ahead of time.

Wifi: The wireless was strong and both of us used it constantly. It expires after 24 hours but you just type in your code again.

Parking: There isn’t parking which is certainly a drag. There’s a garage across the street that’s about $20/day but they don’t let you come and go during the day. There’s a place two streets down, Spring/8th, which is about $22/day and you can come and go as you please. We parked there and suffered up the VERY steep hill between 8th and 10th to get up to the hotel. Seriously, it’s steep. Luckily we only did it once as we took cabs from downtown on the other days. Cabs were between $6-10 and it’s worth it! I felt that the parking garage was very safe as well.

Location: walking to downtown from the hotel is wonderful. It’s downhill, you pass the amazing library and within 10 minutes you’re at Pike Place Market. There is nothing open on Sundays on the streets as you walk down, so you’ll have to find breakfast closer to Pike.

I think the only negative was the lack of free parking…it added an extra $44 to the trip. The service at the front desk was very kind and we really didn’t have any problems.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room facing the courtyard

Good morning and thank you for your review! We will always be your "affordable" Seattle hotel so please come stay with us again. Regarding parking, the bad news is that there is probably no free parking in Seattle (but if you find some, please tell me so I can share it with our guests!). The overnight parking rate that Virginia Mason offers our guests is pretty good for the city. We enjoy our Canadian visitors so please spread the word about our little Inn. Safe travels!
