Our group of 8 people booked a number of rooms and suites here for an event at the Convention Center. The location is very good as it's about 2 blocks from the Westlake light rail station, which goes to the airport for $2.75 (40 minutes). It's about 8 blocks from the convention center and the 10 minutes walk was not far. It is located in an area that has quite a few homeless people around but they seemed to mind their own business and do not bother people at all. It's also two blocks from the Pike market and a lot of good restaurants.
The staff are very nice. I communicated with the staff through e-mail to make changes of my itinerary. They are courteous, prompt, and competent. I couldn't asked anything more.
The hotel is located in a historical building that can't be upgraded with modern amenities such as air conditioning. However, Seattle is never too hot except for 2-3 weeks in July and August. The elevator was small but functioning and fast. No complains there.
The rooms is old but have good clean furniture. The bedding and bathroom are on the small side but very clean. If you've been to Europe, this is a typical city hotel in Paris or Munich.
The main complain, hence the 4/5, I had is the internet. When checked-in, we were told up-front that the WiFi is guaranteed to work only in the lobby. In fact, there's two additional access points located in the 6th floor that we can used in the room. They could've told us in the beginning.
To our group, the Internet is a very important part of the equation. One guy in our group actually said this would be the deal breaker here and he will not stay here.
Most of the others are quite happy as the price of the the hotel is about half to 40% of what you pay at the Sheraton and it's very clean.
Particularly, the suites are particularly good. We stayed in an adjoining room which is in fact two separate rooms with a shared bathroom in between (doors open to each room).
Overall, this is a very good hotel choice in Seattle for budget minded travelers. If you expect 4/5-star amenities (gym, pool, etc.), go elsewhere.
