We were here for the Rock n Roll Marathon in June 2014, and decided to stay at the Westin as they were a sponsoring hotel, and the location was perfect for the start and finish line. This was a great choice!! The room was bright, large and clean with floor to ceiling windows. Our room was on the 45th floor with a city view. The bed was super comfortable. The only thing missing was a coffee maker for the morning (which we are used to with the other hotels we stay at). The linens were of top notch quality. Location for this hotel was awesome. We could walk to everything.....great restaurants, space needle, pikes place, etc. And, one more thing.....speedy elevators!!! Definitely would recommend this hotel, and would definitely return. We are Diamond members with a competitor, and we are now open to making a switch. Thanks Westin!!!

I know that when a review starts out with "not bad" it means that you didn't expect a lot. And the truth is, I didn't. I know the location is good. It's near the monorail and westlake shopping area. It's close to all the sights. And there is starbucks near by.
As for location -- it's good.

As for price, it's pricey but than all the other hotels are equally pricey(over $330 a night).
The room is a good size.

Our view was of the other tower in the hotel. But nice.

The bed was awesome. You can't beat the heavenly bed. I slept so well so that's 5 to me.
I liked the set up of the room and the bathroom was a good size.
The products are standard -- shampoo, conditioner, lotion. Nothing that stood out.

The hallway looked --- well, old.
In our room, there was an adjoining door and there were 2 obnoxious chips. I don't like it when hotel rooms look "worn". That's just me.

The relish deli is nice. The coffee and chai was good and priced good. Not too bad for a hotel.

The concierge was nice. Check in easy.

So why the 4. I just don't think it's worth the money. There's something lackluster about this property. It's just bland. Nothing stood out.

And this is just a grip in general....the tv channel offerings was average. Which means -- could be better. We had to order "movies" because there was nothing to watch.

Sure we could have gone out to movies but I was here on business and I like having background noise on when I am reading and doing some light work.

The property looks like it could use a little update as I didn't once want to sit in the lobby area. It looks "boring".

I was playing tourist. The Westin was well located, only a couple of blocks from the train that runs from the airport. It's also only blocks to Pike Place Market and other attractions of this area. A monorail ride will put you at the Space Needle. Also, Jazz Alley is down the block and around the corner. So, great location.

The room was good, as expected for the price.

The staff were excellent. I arrived late because of a two hour plane delay. The counterling checking me in suggested a number of places to eat. After a little dialog, he found me the perfect location.

From the moment of check in I knew it would be a great experience. The front desk clerk was excellent at his job. Sorry I did not get his name. The room was awesome. Having just stayed at the Westin Vancouver my expectation level was low but the Westin Seattle is superior! Great location, knowledgable concierge and spacious room. Would definitely recommend! Forgot to mention great location.

Stayed at The Westin while we were in town for a concert at The Showbox. While all of the hotels downtown are crazy expensive, we could self-park in their garage, while most others require valet parking. The room was nicely appointed with a great view. The bed was incredibly comfortable...we didn't want to get out of it! There was very little noise, and they were booked solid, so must have great insulation. They offer free wi-if in the lobby, but charge if you want to use it in your room, which is annoying. You can't even store anything in the room fridge unless you pay $7! Seems excessive, considering its $400/night to stay! But overall, we had a very nice, comfortable stay and would return.

We stayed at the Westin for one night before departing Seattle on a cruise. The hotel is very clean, very comfortable, and exactly what I would expect from the Westin brand. Conveniently located just steps from the monorail that takes you to the Space Needle complex, and only an 8 to 10 minute easy walk to the Pike Place Market. Many restaurants, shops, and additional amenities close by. Excellent concierge who is very helpful! Nice bar in lounge for a beverage upon arrival or before retiring for the eve. Starbucks in the lobby. We had a cab out front via the valet within a few minutes for our ride to the port. An excellent stay! Highly recommend!

Hotel is in a great location downtown and very convenient to the lightrail and monorail stations. Staff were friendly. Room was clean--mine was on the 14th floor with a terrific view. The main drawback was I woke each morning with a backache due to the softness of the mattress--maybe it was just a little older. Showers were nice and had both the overhead spray and a handheld option.
