If you like to find the hidden secrets of a city and stay off the beaten path this is for you. Historical building. The interior may have had some restoration but I would say most of what you see has just been well looked after. The overall feel is unique and in it's own way charming. Superb location. Linens are crisp, ok towels nothing plush, ok beds comfortable but not pillow top, rooms are a good size and clean. Our room had a claw tub and faced the backed. Back facing rooms are very quiet. Reception staff very friendly and patient. Free WiFi and parking $15. for 24 hour periods what a bargain that is for downtown covered parking! For us who are in Seattle frequently the Moore Hotel is a great find. Good value and walkable to everything.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back side of the hotel are very quiet.

This place is in a great location for exploring the waterfront. Be sure to ask where the showers are and not assume there arent any like I did as it is Seattle and a green hotel. Parking is $15 and close by in garage. Front desk staff very friendly. Slowest elevator door ever but elevator itself quite quick. Halls are decorated like luxurious European hotel and lobby is quaint and comfy. Room was great, bed comfortable but no A/C thankfully didnt need it. Loved opening the windows. Coffee shop downstairs was good value and great product as well. Will definitely go back.

Room Tip: 515 was good and didnt seem to have a lot of ppl around me.

I can't say enough good things about the Moore Hotel. First of all it was the most economical hotel I found when doing my search. We paid $135 for a 5-room suite, a price no other hotel in the downtown core came even close to. Also, the location was fabulous. We could walk to all the major downtown attractions, most being just a few blocks away. It was clean. It offered a real mix of old and modern, i.e. a historical landmark, over 100 yrs old, yet our room was upgraded and decorated in an urban / modern / chic style. We stayed there twice, once before our cruise and again after. For one night only, we chose a smaller room, and it was just fine. For our 3-night stay, we chose a suite. It was very spacious: 5 rooms, 12 foot ceilings, and tastefully decorated. All the front desk staff were 100% service-oriented. It didn't matter what we needed or what questions we asked, they were there to help. I would recommend the hotel to anyone willing to exchange new accommodations for the charm of an older hotel. We loved it, and if we ever return to Seattle, we will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel are quieter with minimum street noise.

My wife and I have stayed at the Moore on three get-a-ways to Seattle. We love this somewhat quirky, friendly, affordable and well located hotel! During our last trip we took a shared bath room for a night and it worked out great so if that's the only room they have available don't be concerned. While the place shows it's age with some cracked plaster it is clean and well enough appointed. The location is very good and is within walking distance of Pike Place, Pioneer Square, the Space Needle and Bell Town. The coffee shop in the lobby is excellent too. Be sure to take the staff's advice about parking which can be the only tricky part of staying here. Speaking of staff they were most helpful with where to go, what to see and how to get there. They also allowed us to store our bags at check out so we could explore a few hours more. As for the quirky part we love the leopard print carpet on some floors and look for unique art work like the poor lady trying to hold the elevator door open on the third floor!

Room Tip: Don't be afraid to share a bath.

I spent three days at the Moore Hotel and I didn't want to leave! I stayed in room 728, the room was clean and comfortable! The beds were very comfortable I slept like a baby every single night. The tv had plenty of channels! Our room had a little kitchen, it had a fridge, stove, microwave, plates and silverware! The bathroom was also nice and clean. We were down the street from Pike Market. We walked down and had piroshki piroshki pastries every morning (BEST apple cinnamon roll I've ever had). I'll warn you about the elevator, it's probably the slowest, smallest elevator I've ever been on, so if you have a thing about elevators take the stairs. Another thing, try not to walk around after it gets dark, there are a few homeless people around there, if you do go out take a cab back to the hotel just to be safe lol. However, I highly recommend this place. If you don't mind old, awesome, historic buildings you will not regret staying here. Ps. Order a Mexican mocha at the Moore cafe, you will love it!

Lots of character, walking distance to main attractions. Really impressed with the friendly staff, one of whom was especially accommodating seeing that we were exhausted from an overnight flight. Shared bathrooms for European style rooms were clean. There is only one elevator so we just took the elevator up with our luggage and used the stairs the rest of the time (better for our health anyway!) o and the coffee shop downstairs is fantastic - talented baristas who draw pictures in the top of your coffee.

We stayed after arriving back from a cruise. When checking in the afternoon person was ok and helped with directions. The morning staff at check out seemed more polished. We'd asked at time of on-line reservation to have quiet room - we were on 7th floor and facing street. It did finally quiet down around 8p.m. or so and start again early in the morning to have bus traffic. We didn't find it a quiet room. Window openings don't have screens - & seem to be single pane glass. We didn't open the windows. No in room coffee, but coffee shop next door and a place that sells waffles.
It is convenient to get to Pike Place Market - just a couple of blocks. The elevator is very very slow. The room was clean and a number of cable channels on tv to chose from. Bathroom ok, a shower not shower/tub combo. There was shampoo and soap.
We chose this hotel because of price and closeness to the Market so it met our expectations.
