“Nice Place at the Edge of DownTown”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2014

This property is almost at the edge of Downtown, at the other end from the Farmers Market and waterfront but is at a walkable distance. Then they also have free shuttles every one hour which will take you to the nearby attractions which is a big plus.
The rooms are nice, clean and quiet. The breakfast is decent and the internet speed and connectivity was good.
A pro is that from an elevation perspective the walk from the hotel till the water front is at the same level unlike Homewood from where there is a steep slope and therefore may become strenuous.

The only major con was the absence of a hot plate in the room which some of the other nearby hotels like Homewood suite in the same price range provide.

One bad experience was that they blocked my access card to the room as they were not able to get an authorization on my Credit Card after 12 days. I felth it could have been handled better.

Room Tip: My Room was on the first floor at the extreme end of near the stairway. It was quiet although the v...

We have stayed here before; nice, clean and an easy walk to Paramount, shopping, etc. Parking is the only issue...none to speak of on the street and no non-valet alternative that could be found. That said, we'll be back....it's that good.

I stayed here last month and it was chilly, but the hotel is located in a very urban area with lots of great restaurants and bars with close walking distance. The hotel is nice and has a great lobby bar and the breakfast is above average considering it's included.

The room was ok. The location was good. Free breakfast in the morning. You can come down to first floor and grab something to eat. They don't have much choice to choose but it's free so I'm not going to complain. The staff were really nice. The price were good.

Valet parking only and is a bit expensive

One of the best breakfast I have had at a springhill suite.

Bit noisy due to proximity to highway.

Free access to 24 hr fitness across street.

Nice lobby and friendly staff.

15 min easy walk to convention centre and pike market. They do have a shuttle

Stayed one night. Shuttle service to convention center and Westlake center was convenient. Room was very clean. Used the complimentary access to the 24 Hour Fitness across the street. Nice complimentary breakfast. Facing the freeway, the noise was slight but constant so it wasn't distracting. Bed was pretty good, about what you would expect (not like a Westin bed). The only real negative is there isn't much super close in terms of restaurants or shopping. Its a great choice for attending a convention, if you wanted to be closer to the shopping area, other hotels would be more convenient, but this is a good value.

Lobby is really nice. But that was it. Pool was murky and gross. Under the fold out couch was not cleaned and there was candy wraps left under. Stains on the floors and walls. No lock on bathroom door and bed is not wonderful. Not worth 139. Maybe 60
