We stayed here over Christmas. Had a room on 42 floor in North tower. Staff had suggested the North tower as we planned on swimming with kids and this prevents you from having to walk through lobby in swim gear. Great view, quiet and fabulous location for shopping, eating and short walk to Pike Place Market and French pastry shop near Market. We parked in the Westin Building which is attached via a sky bridge for 25 per day with in and out privilidges.

Stayed: December 2013, travelled with family

You cannot beat the location! Centrally located just steps away from Westlake Shopping and of course, the Monorail to the Space Needle. I found the staff exceptional and accommodating! We requested a view of the Space Needle that did not disappoint! Parking is a bit pricy, but that is what you need to expect in a city center. I recommend you request a room with a view on the 40th floor or above in the North Tower. The views are truly awesome. The rooms are quite small lending themselves to the circular buildings. Hunt for good pricing as we found the Westin fluctuates greatly from week to week in cost. Have fun!

Room Tip: Request floors 40 and above in the North Tower. Great Views!

I stayed here with my family and had a wonderful time. We easily walked to all the sites and it was a perfect place to spend a few days before and after our Alaska cruise. We drove to Mt. Ranier one day which I highly recommend. Breakfast in the morning was a little disorganized sometimes (hostess not sure where to sit people and keeping a line when there were tables empty), but the food from the buffet was great and the wait staff very nice. Will stay here again if in the area.

Loved this hotel! I was traveling with my 13 year old and wanted a location that would allow us easy access to all that Seattle has to offer. This hotel is close to the rail from the airport that cost just 3 dollars. Your down the street from Pikes Peak and the mall. We were there Halloween weekend and it was filled with young people attending the Freak Fest, our floor was noisy and busy the first night. I spoke with the front desk and they upgraded our room at no charge ! We had a amazing view and comfortable beds. The burger resturants àre great for snack and there is the most amazing doughnut shop Dahlia around the corner that you must visit. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

As with most Westin hotels the rooms were fabulous. The location is in an ideal location and I will visit again. My concerns with this property is the restaurant and it's employees. The quality of service is only adequate but the quality if the food is substandard.

This hotel needs help. Noone helps with your bags even though Parking Attendants are standing around at drive up level. It happened a few days later to another family member. checkin is one level up but you need a key card for the elevator after 11PM. Parking is too expensive. Restaurant only has Burgers and a few salads. Location is good but so is another SPG in the neighborhood. Pool is fairly shallow and good for children. The women's shower only has cold water even if you run it a long time. The soap dispenser needs repair. The exercise room is worth the visit.

Room Tip: Don't take a room across from the elevators. There are more than two on a floor and they ding pr...

This is a typical Westin property - nicely appointed rooms, heavenly bed, and comfy lounge area in the lobby. The rooms are not as sound proof as I have experienced at other Westins - or, maybe I had exceptionally loud neighbors? Had a wonderful view of the city and the Space Needle - make sure to ask for this. Also, no coffee maker in the room. This Westin is right in the middle of downtown Seattle - walking distance to many restaurants, shops, etc.

The in-hotel restaurant is a burger bistro - with a few additional selections if you're not in the "burger" mood. Food was delivered quickly, was very tasty, and priced reasonably for hotel food ($10 - $12 range).

Valet parking is $46 per night - surprised us, but our late arrival left us in no mood to navigate self parking.
