Not my usual choice of hotel or even hotel class, as this was an atypical trip I took where budget trumped all else (got a two-queen room with free wi-fi and breakfast for less than $65/nt which can't be beat given the circumstances). Location is OK at best, though really depends on why you're in Seattle and what you want to do. It is located on a rather busy and grimy street but if that's not an issue, Seattle City Center is just a block away and Belltown/Downtown is a 10-15 walk or shorter bus ride in. If you have a car and need to get around, driving to I-5 or other major arteries seems easy. The room was clean, as were the rest of the premises. "Fitness room" really just consists of five outdated cardio machines and a treadmill, and the pool is really only usable if no more than 3 people are in it (or say, 4-6 little kids which, on this trip, were the primary users). Great for 1-2 night business travel, or perhaps a short vacation for young families traveling on a tight budget. Breakfast could really benefit from some fresh fruit, but then again it's there and free if you want it...mostly biscuits, eggs and a meat microwaved in bulk. There is yogurt, instant oatmeal, and some other assorted pastries available as well. I believe overnight parking is $10/nt though we didn't use it.
