We usually stay here three days at a time whenever we come down from Vancouver, Canada. It's a fantastic location downtown, right across the street from the beautiful downtown library (a must-see), and a short walk to Pike Place Market, Macy's, Target, Westlake Center, grocery stores, etc. etc. In the other direction, you can walk 15 minutes to the International District and check out Uwajamiya supermarket. A 5 minute cab ride from the train station and 5 minutes from the freeway, if driving down!
The hotel itself is incredibly welcoming. The front desk staff greet you warmly when you enter the hotel, and the living area space with the fireplace looks inviting (there is a wine tasting every evening!) The entire atmosphere of the hotel is cozy and warm. Only on this recent trip, did we finally try the hotel's restaurant, Tulio (to be honest, we were out exploring during dinner most of the time and just ate while out). There is a great new eco-friendly program where, if you do not need housekeeping services, you can get a voucher towards room service or the restaurant, which gave us the incentive to try it. The brunch was delicious and service was very friendly. I can see dinner being very intimate in this restaurant too, following the ambiance of the hotel.
We love the king-sized plush beds with down duvets (a treat away from home) and the room is very comfortable and clean. The WiFi is great. We usually felt the noise level was fine for being downtown... We usually face Spring Street, near the library, and never found it a problem. Wtih the curtains drawn, the room is super dark and you can have an excellent sleep-in.
Also, our one-year old son came along this past trip and the hotel went an extra step in making us and baby in tow feel accommodated and welcome. We had a great time!
The ratings section mention a swimming pool; I don't think there is one..., so I did not comment. And while a kid-friendly hotel, I didn't think any hotels offer any 'kids activities'? However, the surrounding area has a lot for kids to do... There's a musicals theatre down the street and the aforementioned library.
