We booked a room for a week at the Vintage Park prior to our Alaskan Cruise.
The hotel location was very good, the Seattle Library is right across the street, and walking to the Pike Place Market is all downhill.
I feel silly saying anything bad about this place, because people here seem to love it, I guess we are just not boutique hotel people.
The room was nice, but I thought it was a little small, and the girlfriend kept wishing there was some place to put our clothes (there was a closet, however there weren't many hangers, other than that, there were no dressers, or anywhere else to put clothes away.
I was a bit perturbed too, that they mention that there is free coffee in the lobby, but there were no cups when I went to get some on Memorial Day (at first I thought they must just be under staffed because of the holiday, but there were people opening the door, they should have been restocking cups)
After the holiday, there were always cups available, but I went out twice on that Monday, and the cups weren't restocked.
The staff was friendly, but when we called down to ask how much making a local call was, the front desk did not know, they referred us to some information card (that wasn't in our room)
In case you are wondering, a call cost $3.00
Another issue was the business center, my girlfriend used it a few times to book tours and what not, when she tried printing her confirmation, (there was an extra fee for that too) someone had stolen a part from the printer, so it wouldn't work.
She called down to the front desk for assistance, and instead of printing her documents and bringing them to her, they asked her to come get the documents at the front desk.
As I said, it was no big issue, just a bunch of small ones (the fees tacked on to the room service menu, no vending machines in the hotel, and several of the food products offered in the room were not listed on the price card attached).
The bed was nice, and the bathroom was large, however getting shampoo from the pump bottle provided was a bit of a challenge (no personal sized bottles, only a large pump bottle)
Every night there was a wine get together in the lobby, but we were never nearby when it was going on, the lobby was nice though, lots of seats.
I used the free wifi a few times too, I even checked in on Yelp and Foursquare (one of them entitled me to a free bottle of wine, but since we were headed out on a cruise, we didn't want to carry it.
In all, like I said, I suppose we are not boutique people.
