“Immaculately clean with an excellent location and excellent service but otherwise unremarkable.”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

The valet took my car and by the time I'd made it to the front desk approximately 25 seconds later, I was greeted by name even though I'd never stayed here before. Room was tasteful and exceptionally clean. Bed was extra comfy. Ice bucket was pre-filled. My room was situated on the 4th floor facing the pool/gym, so I had no view to speak of so my focus was on inside the guest room itself, which was nice but not appreciably nicer than other hotels of lesser reputations.

I never had a chance to try out the restaurant but I'd have high expecations. You can't beat the location for local flavor.

Room Tip: You may not want to be on the 4th floor if you're facing the inner courtyard/pool area.

A gem in the heart of Seattle. Wonderful service and the best location. The "Art" restaurant is a culinary delight with views of Elliott bay and the service at Art is top notch....they get to know you by name! Rooms are comfy, but décor is blah. The hotel is just a room interior decorator away from being 5 star plus!

My husband and I just spent a few days at this Four Season. We were completely impressed and thrilled with our experience. The location can not be beat. Walking distance to the waterfront and Pike Place market and a courtesy car/driver for anything else. The pool is small but if you pop down early and set up your spot, you will have direct sunlight all afternoon and into the evening.
We loved the concierge staff, pool crew and wait staff at the Art Bar and Restaurant. The concierge recommend two phenomenal restaurants, Canlis and Matt's on the Market and those were both outstanding. Completely different from each other but both epic Seattle spots.
We will absolutely return to Seattle and this will be our hotel each time.
We stayed in a city view on the 6th floor and there were no noise issues for us.
Loved it all around...

Always the gold standard for excellence this Four Seasons hotel does not disappoint. Great location, one block from Pike Market, friendly and efficient staff and all the amenities that make Four Seasons a great hotel brand. We had a beautiful view from our room over looking Elliott Bay. Used the free hotel car for short trips. A really nice service. We look forward to a return visit.

Room Tip: Bayview rooms are extra cost and worth it.

Our family stayed at the FS Seattle in a gorgeous, spacious deluxe bay-view room. Check-in was a breeze, and within a few minutes, the kids were in the pool while I enjoyed the panoramic view of Elliot Bay and Puget Sound from a lounge chair with my drink in hand. Yes, the pool and hot tub area is small, but considering that most of the year the weather is too cold and nasty to swim outdoors anyway, we were very happy to have pool access on the hot, summer day we were there. Kids get free poolside snow cones, too, which is another great perk! If the size of the pool/pool deck is bothering you, I suggest ordering a great drink from the bar and relax and enjoy the views! The hotel is located at the top of the stairs leading down to Post Alley and the Seattle Aquarium, and just a block from Pike Place Market. We also walked an easy 20 minutes to the Space Needle, Chihuly Museum, and then down to the Olympic Sculpture Park, and back.

FS excels at keeping the families happy and the kids welcome amenity included a scavenger hunt checklist which they were eager to complete during our stay. Be sure to make cotton candy with the pastry chef after dining at ART! Such a unique and memorable experience for the kids.

A recent reviewer mentioned issues with dated technology, but we didn't have any issues with the TV or AC in our room. We had a modern, quiet thermostat, flat screen TV, and a TV in the bathroom mirror which the kids watched while swimming in the tub.

We have always had exceptional experiences at Four Seasons properties, and the FS Seattle met our every expectation. We can't wait to return!

My husband and I went to Seattle to begin our year of celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary last September. The Four Seasons was a perfect place! We have travelled extensively, and this was one of the best ever hotel experiences. Everyone on the staff was very helpful, professional and friendly.
We were especially impressed with their method of housekeeping. No big, bulky cleaning carts in the hallways - just well dressed housekeepers pulling their roller boards and carrying a vacuum. The best we have seen since staying in Hong Kong.
Our room was lovely with a view of the bay. We loved overlooking the pool, and I swam there daily. It was delightful to overlook the bay from the pool. Although the hotel was sold out, it never was crowded or noisy.
This hotel certainly has outstanding management and fine training. We cannot wait to return.
Well done, Four Seasons!

The hotel is gorgeous and immaculately clean. Quick walk from Pike Place Market. Service was friendly and personal as expected at a Four Seasons. The pool desk is perfect for summer and, although small, it was not too crowded. Although nicely furnished, we had a city-view room and it seemed a little dark. I'd probably select a water view in the future. Unfortunately, as another reviewer had commented, we could not get the A/C to cool properly, so our sleep quality was impacted. Overall, we would definitely stay here again.
