We stayed here for 4 nights. I agree with some of the comments (location, updating, etc). However, the hotel is more than fine for tourist attractions (if you don't mind walking and the hills)! If you walk down Madison (towards the water)...you end up right at the WA State Ferries building (to Bainbridge and Bremerton). We had no problems with the hills (we're in our 50's)...it is good exercise to help wear off the food(think Ivar's Acres of Clams for soup/fish...yummy). We took the light-rail from SeaTac ...and had no problem walking the few blocks with our roller-suitcases. Here's a tip if you are headed to WestLake Center (or downtown area...and to Pike's Public Market)--- take 6th Street to Pike (hills are not that bad there)!
The one thing that bothered me most about the hotel: the water pressure in the bathroom sink. It must have had some type of regulator/control...because it was next to impossible to rinse my razor / rinse my toothbrush. It didn't seem like a malfunction...it just seemed like super-poor water pressure from the faucet. The shower worked great...and have no complaints about that pressure.
We'd stay here again if in the area.
