“Fantastic location, that is pretty much it.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2013

We booked through Hotwire so you never know what you are going to get but the reviews were good so we took the plunge!
Arrived and had to wait 15 mins as there was only one attendant at the desk- was not awesome as we were pretty tired and had many parcels with us. The rooms were adequate at best- very small, even though it was just two of us. I really appreciate the old character of the building but from a functional perspective it was not as ideal as it could have been.

Breakfast was not spectacular but included- we opted to walk to Starbucks accross the street for coffee as what they had was not desirable.

The location was fantastic however- in the shipping hub and only 4 blocks from the pike market. We paid $30 for 24 hours of parking (nothing too surprising) but had we not got such a good deal on Hotwire and paid full price for our room for a Friday night we would have not been impressed.

Probably won't go back, would rather pay a but more and get more. Loved Seattle!

The Roosevelt is a classic old property that has been and continues to be renovated by Coast hotels. It is not a lavish property in any sense. It has small public spaces, and currently no restaurant (the famous VONS bar and grill is now closed). The rooms are also smaller but nicely decorated but have tight bathrooms. The great feature of this hotel is it is located in a great location in downtown Seattle for shopping, walking, and easy access to the airport rail link and Seattle Centre monorail.

I stayed here as I was attending a conference at the Washington State Convention Center. The hotel was just down from here which made it very convenient for work and it is also well located for other things to do in the area. The staff were very welcoming, the rooms were clean and it had a very nice atmosphere. The breakfast in the morning was good too. I would stay here again.

Even downtown , very quiet hotel
The most important is that you don't hear the people from other rooms
Very comfy bed & pillows
The room & and bathroom were very spacious and clean
I stayed for 2 nights with my two yr old daughter , I walked everywhere and the hotel staff was very helpful and friendly
Also the location of the hotel is great

I had a short stay at the Roosevelt and it was a great experience. The staff was friendly and helpful. We were lucky enough to get an unexpected room upgrade! The hotel is in a great location. Almost everywhere we went was a short walk. The rooms were very nice, and the bed was great. I had a great experience at the Roosevelt.

The staff was friendly. The hotel was in a great location, very convenient. The room seemed spacious for downtown Seattle. Large flat screen tv. Plus, it was nice to be able to open the window for fresh air. I would stay here again.
