After speaking with a rep at the hotel by phone, I reserved a "bayview" 1 bedroom king bed suite. The room itself was impressive, both modern and large, but not only did we not have a view of the bay (those on the 4th and 5th floors might, but from the 3rd floor we saw the top of a building across the street-- built after the Homewood-- and could see the bay only between two buildings off to the side), but we were immediately above two busy streets. "Bayside" would have been more accurate. If I'd known this beforehand, I would definitely have reserved a city view room (a rep at the reception desk said she'd always recommend those rooms, but, unfortunately, she wasn't the one I talked with before reserving).
The hotel was, IMHO, expensive, even for a large room in Seattle (good location, a mile from Pike Market, and walking distance from the Space Needle, though not in the center of downtown). Laundry was a plus, even at $2 each for wash and dry. Free breakfast buffet was good, though the dining room could get very crowded, and the workers overwhelmed by the crowds, so at times silverware, plates, etc., could run low. Parking in the covered garages, each with a gate that usually closed after one entered, was extra, though it was comped for us after we remarked about the noise from the room.
