“Can't be beat”
Reviewed 2 January 2012

This is a real favorite!! We go to Seattle a few times a year to visit our daughter and family and it would be hard to get us to stay anywhere else. We always reserve a suite with a balcony and sometimes a corner room which is even better. The view is terrific and the service superb. This year we were there for Christmas and asked if it would be o.k. to send out Christmas packages in advance. No Problem! When we arrived the Desk Clerk told us we were staying in her FAVORITE room and from there on in we felt welcome and appreciated. The Town Car offers free shuttle service to downtown; they've upgraded the free Continental Breakfast; the exercise room is convenient and adequate; the nearby restaurants are up and running again and the value can't be beat. A little bar or restaurant would be great but overall this hotel definitely fits the bill.

Room Tip: ask for a corner suite

We stayed for one night en route from Vancouver to the Oregon coast. The room was comfortable and very clean and the the staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful. The buffet breakfast was adequate but nothing special.The shuttle bus was available and useful and the hotel is in a good location to access the main Seattle attractions. It is quite pleasant around the lake area with places to eat.

We stayed here for 3 nights to go to a Seahawks game and explore Seattle. We were very happy with our choice.

The FREE shuttle service was fantastic. It leaves the hotel on the hour and half hour and you call up the hotel to ask to be picked up when you're ready. We were able to take the shuttle to the stadium on game day which was incredibly convenient. It was about a 5-10 minute ride from the hotel to downtown.

Our room overlooked Lake Union and had a view of the space needle. It was comfortable and new. We didn't have any complaints about the heat, water, etc. Breakfast was standard but a nice spread for a free breakfast. The free parking was a nice plus as well. There were a few restaurants across the street overlooking the lake. We tried Joey's and enjoyed it - it was crowded on a Friday night but we didn't have to wait.

We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Lake view was worth it and includes a view of the space needle off to the side. Watch the sea plane...

The location across from Lake Union is perfect! The rooms were clean, good size and comfy for the price point. The customer service was awesome as well. The offer free shuttle service to a few locations in downtown Seattle which is really convenient. The shuttle driver, John was so accomodating with great customer service. I would definitely recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: It is worth a few extra dollars for the lake view rooms.

We stayed here for 5 nights, two rooms. Rooms were very nice, the staff was very helpful and professional, the breakfast was ok. Still prefer the breakfast at Hampton Inn. The exercise room is excellent and opened 24 hours. Didn't use the spa or pool. Did use the elevator accessed from the garage and it is very quick, as opposed to the one near the lobby, which is used by more people. Really liked the atmosphere of this hotel and plan to stay there again in a few months. We had a car so didn't use the shuttle.

Stayed here four nights while visiting with family. Loved the location; can get to downtown attractions via trolley (end of the line is 2 blocks from the hotel), yet not as congested as being in the heart of downtown. Besides that, the shuttle driver(s) are VERY accomodating - pleasant, and will veer off the scheduled stops to customize what you need if they can swing it. Even offered to take our whole family to whatever dinner spot we picked, even tho' they weren't all staying at the hotel! Rooms are very comfortable and clean and ours was very good sized - we even had a fireplace! Even tho' they do not have a bar or restaurant, there are several nice places within walking distance on beautiful Lake Union. The complimentary breakfast was one of the better ones we've had - along with the standard waffle, cereal, and pastries, they also had scrambled eggs, sausage and canadian bacon - everything was warm and tasty! Will probably be our go-to place next time we go to Seattle to see the family!

Stayed here before. Chose this time because of free, gated parking; free breakfast; beautiful scenery over Lake Union; easy access to downtown and to airport. Service by the staff was excellent, and with the discounted rate we received, we just could not ask for more. Takes about 20 minutes to drive to the airport, and about 5-10 to drive downtown. Hotel's shuttle will drop you off at key spots in Seattle, like Pike Place Market, and pick you up. Hotel is on a trolley line, so transportation from this location is very, very easy. Nice indoor pool for a few short relaxing laps.

Room Tip: Rooms facing Lake Union will probably cost more, depending on availability, but the "View Room...
