Reviewed 6 December 2013

Booked online for a weekend stay to attend the Apple Cup. Reserved an "urban suite" room; very roomy and comfortable, loved the funky urban chic decor. Location was perfect, within walking distance of Pike Place Public Market, shopping, SAM ( Seattle Art Museum), etc. parking very reasonable for downtown hotel. Would definitely stay there again.

Having lived in Seattle for 6+ years, I walked by this hotel almost every single day. Back then it used to be owned by Ramada. Now that I live in Canada, I was recently in Seattle on a business trip. When I stumbled upon this property in our travel portal, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that the hotel premises have been spruced up under pineapple hospitality management. The hotel has more of a boutique feel to it now. Anyways, I went in with low expectations and was quite impressed with what I got during my 4 night stay.

+ complimentary mini-cupcakes in the lobby
+ complimentary bikes (although I did not use them), I am sure those would be fun in the summer
+ complimentary shuttle to South lake union
+ proximity to Top pot doughnuts :)
+ close to all attractions in Seattle
+ tommy bahama toiletries in the bathroom
+ clean comfortable rooms, ask for one facing 5th Ave or Blanchard st for more natural light
+ efficient front desk, they also arranged for a towne car to the airport early in the morning

- Stand in shower has some weird smell, leave the door open
- Bathroom area gets pretty dark and the lighting is dim
- No views
- Breakfast at Max cafe was nothing to write home about

Overall, I would recommend this property for a business trip. It's efficient, clean and modern. It's also great value for money especially in Seattle downtown core.

Travelmusings,

Pleased to see that you found our hotel and location accommodating to your travel needs. We love our Pineapple mini-cupcakes too, we are glad you had an opportunity to try a few! Our company is actively looking for other energy efficient options for better lighting in the bathroom area, so this change is coming soon! We look forward to having you as a guest in the future!

My boyfriend and I found a deal off booking.com to stay at this hotel with his parents. We did not get to take advantage of many of the amenities as we were only there for a short time, but we very much enjoyed it. I ended up having to do some work while there and the internet was excellent. The staff was very helpful. Clean rooms, great design, yummy pineapple cupcakes at tea time.

One thing is, I would skip the restaurant. We only ate there once, so our experience may not be statistically significant, but the service was poor, and there was lipstick on one of the coffee mugs. Not awful by any means, but not great. And as the location is close to great things, like Top Pot Doughnuts, you might as well go there...

I am glad that we surprised you with an enjoyable stay! I'm sorry the cafe didn't knock your socks off; we have recently revamped our cafe menu so hopefully next you stay with us you have a better experience! Thanks again for reviewing our hotel.

My best friend and I made our first visit to Seattle in mid-November. I'm typically a Starwood hotel snob, but we decided to be adventurous and book through Hotel Tonight. Hotel Five was our first choice for our stay because of the other ratings and the prime location. It did not disappoint! When we arrived, we were greeted by two very hospitable and enthusiastic front desk attendants - Andrew and Brennan. They gave us great recommendations on where to eat and visit during our stay. I'm from the South, so my experience is that few people are as hospitable as we are here, but Hotel Five definitely exceeded my hospitality expectations.

The hotel is within walking distance to great sights (Space Needle, Pike Place Market, the waterfront) and restaurants (The Crumpet Shop, Portage Bay Cafe, Home Remedy). It's easy to get to other neighborhoods by bus or cab if you want to explore. We never had a cab ride that was more than $15 to Ballard. We took advantage of the new complimentary bicycles for an entire day of riding around the city and to Bainbridge Island (another recommendation from Brennan). They are adorable, and we had about 100 people stop us to tell us so.

The only two downsides are typical of any hotel - not the best lighting and not such a great view (the hotel is only five floors, so you won't get sweeping city views). Since we didn't spend much time in the room, this didn't really bother us.

We fell in love with the city while we were there, and it's in no small part due to our stay at Hotel Five. We hope to return soon!

Room Tip: Try for a street facing room; otherwise, you'll be looking over a parking lot.

Stayed here in October with my wife and met some friends of ours. Very nice hotel and only a few minutes walk to downtown. Exceptionally friendly staff and very knowledgeable about good things to do and see in Seattle.

If i was returning to Seattle i would certainly stay here again, please do make use of the free bikes!

Room Tip: side away from the mono rail is quieter

If you're looking to be relatively close to everything, Hotel Five is within a short drive/manageable walk from everything. Parking is $15 a day and the lot is relatively hard to maneuver around since it's so tight, so beware if you're in a larger vehicle. You might be better off getting lucky with the free street parking around the hotel. Can't comment on the cafe, complimentary bikes or the Pineapple Shuttle bus. They do offer mini pineapple cupcakes and Starbucks coffee but there are Keurig machines and bottled water in the room as well. Luckily we didn't have to use the large complimentary umbrella also provided in the room. The bathroom is a little dark and the loud, modern fixtures aren't the most functional for hanging clothes or towels for two but otherwise, it was fine. The bed is plush and comfortable so a good night's sleep is possible, if you're not a light sleeper and prone to waking up to light traffic outside or obnoxious floor mates slamming doors at 5 am.

Room Tip: Request to have a room that doesn't face the street unless you plan to drone it out with the A/C...
