While this was only a Holiday Inn Express it had all the features which are expected of such hotels and everything worked rather well. The hotel is well located near the Space Needle and it’s a fairly easy walk downtown or you can catch the monorail which is located nearby. The rooms are a good size and have all the features expected of a hotel such as a fridge and microwave. All in all it represented good value for money and it was a pleasant stay. Would recommend to others.

Stayed as part of a baseball week getaway to Seattle to see the Pirates play the Mariners. Chose the hotel based upon the location near the Space Needle as we wanted to take in some the Seattle sights as well. The location was good for providing access to downtown as well as the other tourist attractions found within Seattle. The room, double queen beds on second floor, was clean though very basic. Would have preferred a better view - as we faced the alley and the back side of the adjacent hotel. Carpeting was older and the dresser has seen better days. But otherwise, beds were comfortable. The comp breakfast was good and the cinnamon buns were quite tasty..

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the alley.

Thank you for staying with us! All of our standard two queen rooms are on the "alley" side of the hotel, but we do offer studio suites and full suites with great views of the Space Needle. While many of our standard guest rooms have been updated with fridges and microwaves, not all of them have yet. Our upgraded room types all do, however, so that is certainly another perk to booking those accommodations. All of our furniture and most of our carpet is being replaced, as well, so we will be looking pretty sharp by the end of the year. I hope you will come back, see the changes, and let us know what you think!

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.
