“Great hotel, great city, great time of year”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

We had been visiting family on Whidbey Island for the week and decided we would spend an extra day in downtown Seattle. Summer is a busy time and hotel rates are higher all over town, so be prepared to pay more than some other cities. But the Hotel Andra is worth it!
The hotel was just what we needed: quiet, convenient, roomy, friendly, helpful, and private. The staff were great, always helpful and with a smile.
The hotel is at an excellent location, surrounded by restaurants, shopping, you name. And just a few blocks to Pikes Market.
The Lola restaurant next door is a wonderful breakfast place. It deserves its own review which I intend to do. Suffice to say this is a must visit any time I'm in Seattle.

Room Tip: Facing 4th street gives you a good view of the city.

we were debating between Hotel Andra & Hotel 1000. At the end Andra won, and boy were we glad about our decision. Since day we were greeted by very friendly staff. Day 2 - Bill (at the reception desk) proved to be a great resource in helping us plan our day around town. Location is the BEST and the room itself was cozy and trendy, but the bathroom has an incredibly efficient design. Having breakfast a LoLa it's a must. Hotel Andra will definitely be our first option for next time a Seattle.

Room Tip: Room 510 is unbeatable

JorTC,

Wow! Thank you for your kind words. It was a pleasure reading your review and sharing it with our team, especially Bill. Our central location does lend itself very well discovering all that Seattle has to offer. Being able to explore all of it by foot, if you choose, is one of the great features of our hotel. We are looking forward to making our home your new home away from home in Seattle.

See you soon!

Old world charm with new world amenities. Great location to walk to all! Pleasant staff and both restaurants in the hotel were very good. A couple of odd noises from the plumbing? We would return here next time we visit.

We enjoyed this property. The room was very nice (comfortable beds), the front desk was friendly and helpful with finding things and even making resos for dinner and sightseeing. The restaurant and bar were great (bar tender was super and informative), and the Dahlia bakery across the street was yummy. The location is close to restaurants, Pike Place Market, the link and tram (straight shot to the Needle and Glass museum plus lots else). Only drawback was that our room wasn't ready when we arrived at 3:45p. Although the front desk was apologetic they said they were very busy and housekeeping was behind. They took our luggage and said they would call when our room was ready. There was no attempt to offer us a anything for our inconvenience. Over the next few days of our stay, we noticed that we weren't the only ones that experienced this. Overall though, it was a great property and we would recommend it.

Room Tip: I would recommend a room on a higher floor to diminish road noise

Dear Choo170, We are glad to read that you had a great visit to Seattle and that you enjoyed your stay at Hotel Ändra. Thank you for being our guest. I'm sorry that your check-in was delayed by a short time. There was an unforeseeable delay with our linen delivery service partner which caused housekeeping to fall behind. I do not offer this information to you as an excuses, rather, I feel it's important for you and our future guest to know that we value all our guests time and make every effort to ensure a prompt check in. We've spoken to our linen partners about the challenge to ensure that you and future guest do not encounter the same delays in the future.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Hotel Ändra during your next visit to Seattle. Please feel free to contact me directly when you are planning your next visit. I would be delighted to assist you and oversee all the details of your next stay!

Warmest Regards,
Lars

We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the hotel. Frette towels and a spacious Superia room has made the family of four vacation very pleasant. Walkable to Belltown, Nordstrom, Pike Place Market. A bonus is having a few Tom Douglas establishments next door or across the street. Go to Dahlia bakery for some sweet treats!

Lisa C, It is wonderful to read that you enjoyed your stay at Hotel Ändra! Thank you for being our guest and taking a moment to share your experience. We enjoy reading about our guest's visit to Seattle, especially when our guest have a great time.

It is a "bonus" to have a central location and for our guest to be able to walk to so many of Seattle's attractions, shopping, and great restaurants. We are lucky to have 10 Tom Douglas fine restaurants or establishments all within a few blocks of the hotel (3 now inside the hotel) and 3 directly across the street! I couldn't agree more, the Dahlia Bakery in my opinion is the best place to pick up a quick sweet treat! I personally love the double chocolate cookie! Everything is baked fresh daily. You can also get a quick breakfast sandwich if you are on the go or enjoy a cup (or bowl) of fresh made soup for lunch!

Once again, thank you for the comments. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

I loved this Hotel. So why the low review you might ask? There was a noise from the air conditioning unit that had me up all night. When I brought it to the attention of the front desk the next morning, and described the noise, the manager on duty replied, oh, I know what that is, and it shouldn't be doing that, and I will send a tech person. (I was only staying one night) I just felt that some type of compensation was in order. A free future night, a comp breakfast, a free pen, meaning, just do something to make it right. ANYTHING. I have a business, and if my client is not 100% satisfied, I will either, refund them or find a way to make it right. Other then that, the staff was so great, loved the design and home feel of the rooms. Great location.

Room Tip: Make sure the air conditioner is working properly

Aloha zipgirl808, it was our pleasure to have you stay at Hotel Andra while visiting Seattle. Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. I'm truly sorry for any inconveniences you may have experienced during your stay.

Our service team is available at any time to assist you.. We understand that it may not have not been convenient for you to report the concern just before bed. However, please know that if the unusual noise was reported, we would have come up with a solution and/or compensation if we could not fix the problem immediately. We are at your service and our goal is make your stay both relaxing and enjoyable at all times.

You will not hear a myriad of excuses, just a sincere apology for the misunderstanding at check out. The Manager on Duty did not recognize your true disappointment with your stay at the time of check out. His reflection was that you enjoyed your visit and that you were providing direct feedback about a possible concerns in the room. Clearly this was not the case and we missed out on that opportunity to make it right for you. I have shared your review with the Management Team so that we can improve on our listening skills and have better insight when a guest is disappointed.

Just after you checked out, our engineer team was notified of the disturbance. Although we could not replicate any unusual noises as you explained to the Manager, we did service the entire unit to ensure that you and future guest do not encounter the same concern. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Your comments will help us continue to be a top 5 hotel on Trip Advisor.

I look forward to having you come back and stay at Hotel Ändra during you next visit to Seattle. I would be glad to personally assist you with your next reservations and oversee all the details. Meantime, I will connect with you directly so that we can discuss a resolution regarding your recent stay.

Mahalo,

Lars

My wife and I had tickets to Seafair. To avoid the late night traffic we decided to stay downtown Seattle. My wife found the Andra and we hoped for the best. When we arrived at the hotel the staff was fantastic. The hotel was quaint, but updated. It was adjacent to a fantastic restaurant. We took the elevators to our room and were on the thrilled at how beautiful the room was. As my wife stated, it was perfect and clean. We were so close to the activities, as well as restaurants, and shopping... we had an absolute ball. We'd recommend this hotel to anybody. It is upscale but you get what you pay for.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on fourth Avenue. It faces the main drag and it's great for people watching

We are delighted Susan J to have you as our guests! Your review is truly uplifting to my team and we can't thank you enough for choosing Hotel Ändra! Mini "stay-cations" are sometimes the best way to explore the city! We do feel very fortunate to have one of Seattle's premier restaurants, Lola, just outside our lobby and available to our guest through room service!

The team takes great pride in delivering excellence ! It is indeed a true compliment to receive such praise as yours! Please join us again, we want to make our home, your home away from home for all your fun and "unexpected" stays in Seattle!

Cheers!
