This is a decent hotel for the money, if you can get a deal on it on a travel site. It's in the middle of a residential area in Lower Queen Anne -- a nicer area than most of the hotels right around Seattle Center. You're within walking distance of Seattle Center and right off Western/Elliott, which is a major thoroughfare in Seattle. However, despite facing on Elliott ("bay-facing" room), we didn't hear a lot of traffic noise.
The suite itself was quite spacious. The decor was average -- not awful but probably due for refurbishment soon, as it looks about 15-20 years old, showing some wear. A hot breakfast is free -- it's decent for a free hotel breakfast (Silver Cloud is probably a little better, but I've seen much worse in Seattle). Wifi is also free, which is unusual at a Hilton hotel. The only big extra charge was parking -- $20/night for the garage -- but as it's a residential area there's reasonably safe on-street parking all around the hotel and it doesn't seem too difficult to get a spot.
Really I only had two complaints, which were the strong, stale "hotel" smell -- really overpowering when you first walk into the room, which always makes me think they're trying to cover something up; and the housekeeping, which is a bit perfunctory during your stay (was clear they didn't vacuum or clean the bathtub/sink), although the room was clean when we arrived. Overall, this is not a bad deal for a suite in Lower Queen Anne, given the location and the prices of comparable hotels.
