We chose the Moore Hotel because of its convenient location in downtown Seattle. We could park our car in the parking garage near the hotel (there is a reasonable charge for parking) and see all the sights of Seattle using public transportation. The staff at the hotel was friendly and helpful. The building is old, but the rooms are quite comfortable and clean. Comfortable beds. We were very happy with our choice and would stay there again.

Stayed at The Moore for a week. check-in was a bit of a hassle due to not having enough money on a credit card and I was waiting to be paid which was the next nigh. The person on the front desk said not to worry and speak to them on the Wednesday and fix it up. Got the key to my room and got in the elevator (which is a small elevator) and went up to the 6th floor and into my room

The view wasn't great but it didn't bother me...when I first entered the room it had a musty smell but i just opened the window to air it out...the bathroom is small but was ok...the toilet had what I would say airplane quality pressure meaning drop your ring or necklace and flush...say goodbye.

The hotel is right next Pike Place Market and heap of places to shop...yes there plenty of "undesirables" who will ask you for a cigarette, money etc. but they are pretty harmless. The room did get very hot due to the heater being on (which runs on a timer) but just open the window a bit to keep the room nice and toasty)...

The photos on their website doesn't do the hotel any justice..management said they do have to update their website.

Staff are very friendly (they fixed up my credit card issues very quickly without any fuss)

Granted it's an old building and the rooms are missing some mod-cons (my room still had an old CRT TV and wi-fi doesn't go all the way round the floor) but if you need a hotel where you don't care about no room service and just basically use it to sleep, freshen up and keep your luggage safe...this place is for you

Room Tip: Try and get a room that is within the wifi range (if you need the internet)...Front desk will give y...

I chose the hotel for my friend and I because we had limited time and wanted good value. It was an excellent location. Quick walk to Pike Market, or the monorail, or to the shops in the downtown core.
Very clean
Excellent service by staff at front desk.
You leave your key at the front desk every time you leave. I never had to wait long. There was often a line up at the front desk, but the staff acknowledged us within a few minutes. I've stayed in hotels where you are left hanging, no order the the line up. I think the Moore hotel has less rooms and professional staff.
We stayed in room 420. No a/c. No fridge. No frills. BUT the hotel is an older 'boutique' heritage building. We knew this going in. It didn't detract from our experience. It was hot outside in early Sept, so ac would have been nice but not a deal breaker. Ear plugs are a must if windows are open OR if the people in 419 (our Neighbour left facing our door) are having crazy monkey sex every 3 hours! Yes, yes, yes! Actually she said, "aw, aw, aw!" *high pitched voice. They copulated so much I had to have a cold shower and cigarette after each session. Thankfully, we were out most of the time running around. (We laughed each time)
Great Mexican food on the same street, about 3 blocks away. Cheap low frills bar next door was good for a nightcap. This is a come as you are type hotel. Don't bring you Fifty Shades reenactment fantasy please. I'd stay again. Location location location.

Visited Seattle for 1st time, staying 5 nights from Sept 19. 7th floor room, nice sized room with queen bed, comfortable bed &room. About 32 inch flat screen TV. Quiet (on back side of hotel) from street noise. Soap, shampoo, no Kleenex. Cooked breakfast within a few minute walk away. Within a few minute walk are Pike Place Market, Nordstrom's, Macys, Westlake Center (light rail from airport), Monorail, and in the other direction (Belltown) the Seattle Cinerama. The hotel staff at lobby desk were very nice. Hotel heat not on yet, but staff gave me a space heater. Would stay again at this hotel as very pleased. And, it was very affordable. Historic Moore Theatre in same building.

The rooms and bathrooms are a bit on the smaller side but we were only in our room long enough to shower sleep and change. It is in the heart of downtown and very close to everything! And has one of the best coffee/cafe shops I've ever been to! We will most defiantly being staying here again.
