Six flat blocks to the Space Needle, six [mostly-] flat blocks to the Market, and five from the
Light Rail -- it's super-close to downtown without being in the thick of the noise. I think it's the ideal location for a first-time visitor.
(Not to deter guests with cars: their $15/day garage is pretty reasonable for downtown. And during our stay, which coincided with free-meter hours [Sat 8pm thru Mon 8am], we found street parking directly in front, every time.)
All the hotels in the local Pineapple chain are modern, clean, and hip and Five is no exception. My joy with the room would have been complete if it had had less-musty AC; a slightly-bigger shower stall and decent counter space (wasted space in the bathroom! Why?!); and a fridge. The monorail did not bother us a bit, but we do live on a busy street.
Regardless, it's a great place and I wouldn't hesitate to stay again.
