Seattle is an expensive city so "value" is a relative term - $169 plus tax. My daughter and I made a short overnight trip for a show at the Paramount theater. The Baroness is walking distance to the theater, downtown shopping, Pike place and right across the street from Virginia Mason. Our room was on the 5th floor, two twin beds, sitting area and full kitchen- there were no utensils in the kitchen but perhaps would be available if requested. Other than flooring and furniture, our room had not seen any updates since at least the 1950's. That being said, it was clean with no foul smells. The bathroom had an old smell but was not offensive. Let me first say that I enjoy staying in historic hotels, see humehotel.com for one of my favorites. The Baroness has potential but it has work to do. No air conditioning made it stuffy and hot - a ductless heat pump would do wonders! The bathroom was small and hot and the sofa bed in the seating area was past it's prime, we kept re-adjusting the cushions to stop from sitting on the sofa frame, tables were past their best before date - well worn and the drain in the bathtub clogged while showering. The free wi-fi was a nice touch. I doubt I'll be back thinking a VRBO would be a better value option.
