Our family of 6 stayed at this hotel for 2 nights prior to leaving on a cruise. We had a two room suite. It was a good size and easily accommodated us all. It was a modern room and was well appointed - comfortable beds, 2 flat screens, 2 bathrooms and still room for sitting areas in both rooms - no complaints at all here.

Noise - others have commented on this and all I can say is that we did not here any despite being right next to a major road. Not sure whether the windows were double glazed but the noise was not a problem. Also had a great view of the space needle.

Breakfast - also many comments on the quality of the breakfast and again.did not have any major complaints. Yes the selection is limited and the dining room is a bit small but we always found something to eat and got a table - the breakfast comes with the tariff give them a break. We have been on the road in the US for a couple of weeks and this is the first place that has even offered breakfast so we were happy.

Location - not too bad but yes a bit of a a walk downtown there is bus (the 358 from memory) that gets you downtown and to Pike Market etc but these places are easily walkable.

This hotel is great and our family enjoyed our time there and is Seattle.

Room Tip: Upper level rooms get a great view of the space needle.

Compared with our stay at a similar Holiday Inn in Helena this was a disappointment. The rooms were small, the hotel noisy. In fact I can't think of anything good to say about it apart from it is handy for the centre of Seattle and that at $132 per night it was a reasonable price for a city.

Its an old Holiday Inn so it needs a lot of updating to compete with the newer bigger Holiday Inns. Very noisy room on the highway side so make sure you get a room away from the highway 99. Service could use some better training or hire someone with people skills. Carpet had some stains so needs carpet cleaning as well. Overall, not comparable to other HI! I'd rather goto a Marriot for the same price down the street.

The hotel is a 20 minute walk from the downtown, but the road is very busy and next to a highway. The rooms are very small and breakfast choices poor. Would never stay there again, but rather stay outside the city and drive in and park for the day closer to downtown, which would be more economical.

Thank you for giving us a try! We are centrally located between Seattle Center and downtown Seattle, so we are in a very busy area. Our breakfast options rotate on a daily basis in order to add variety, especially for those guests staying more than one night. We offer hot options like scrambled eggs, omelets, sausage, biscuits, and pancakes in addition to the typcial continental-style breakfast options. We also have several different room types with different configurations - some larger than others like our studio suites and full suites. Perhaps you will try us again during your future travels to Seattle.

I appreciate the opportunity to host you.

Happy Travels!

Warm Regards,

room rates in Seattle are expensive and the hotel is ok for the price. It is about a 10 minute walk from the space needle but is outside a major road so is quite noisy. The hotel is going through a major upgrade (which it needs) but is ok if you are looking for a base to go out exploring. The breakfast is good but there is a shortage of space in the room. The internet connection is the slowest I've experienced for a long time and the signal is stronger in the reception areas

Room Tip: avoid the main road

Thank you for taking the time to share your comments about our hotel! I'm glad you had a good time, and I hope you will come visit us again in the future.

Our renovations will continue through the summer on the top three floors, and we will begin the 2nd and 3rd floors in the fall. We are excited about the improvements our ownership is making to our property, and I invite everyone to come see what we've done so far.
