Most people would disagree with me on this, but I would take the Westin Seattle over this hotel. They both are great hotels and are both part of the great chain of Starwood Hotels. Here are the reasons I would take the Westin:
1). The Sheraton has a colder feeling to it in the lobby with marble flooring and just a bland feel.
2). Half the elevators go up to the floors 1-20 and the other half go up from 20-pool. Thus, if you are below floor 20, you need to ride all the way down to the crowded lobby and then swap elevators up to the pool.
3). Call me crazy, but this hotel seems to get more obnoxious travelers than the Westin. This is not exactly the hotels fault, but I can see a big difference. There were a bunch of people in the lobby cussing up a storm, in an elevator I was nearly ran over with a luggage cart even though I was in the elevator first. There must have been 10 smokers WAY too close to the door of the hotel (not 25 feet away). The hotel should control this.
Besides that, the pluses are:
Beautiful workout room. Holy cow, working out with a view and a very new machines is amazing. Rooms are decent, nothing to write home about but yet nothing to complain about. The location is nice, it's in a very busy area of Seattle if you like that. Plenty of shopping right next to you.
Still, great hotel, I just think the Westin is superior even though it's much older.
