“mixed review- good for singles, only ok for family”
Reviewed 25 August 2011

on the plus side: the room was pleasant and clean, great shower, and very convenient to amtrak, lite rail, and free bus to all the touristy stuff we wanted to do. lots of great things to do and see that are less than 2 blocks away or two bus stops up the hill, nice walk back down.
on the down side: the room was small for more than 2 people, daughter slept on fold out sofa, this left little room for any movement, hotel did not make up bed for her, did not include a third cup. (they don't seem prepared for families) also: there is a blinking light that flashes right over the bed!

Very nice hotel, good location, within walking distance to most downtown Seattle attractions ( 10 minute walk to Safeco field). Room was very nice,clean,comfy beds,nice linens and pillows and larger than expected. Good work out facilities , but tiny pool in basement ??? Valet parking 28$ ,but paking in Seattle is expensive.
Staff was helpful and pleasant as with most Marriott hotels. Business centre had ample computers and decent printer.

Room Tip: higher floors if you want a view

In a nutshell it is clean and new feeling and a good value.

Overall we liked it and it met our needs but it felt like an apartment more than a hotel and had no energy to it, if that makes sense. Finally, if you stay here as for street side as the back alleyr side gets dumpster visits regularly.

Just returned from 2 night trip to Seattle and stayed at Courtyard. If you're going to a game AND wanting to spend time at Pike Place Market and/or shopping district, this is a great place to stay. The property was clean and the staff provided very good service. Here are some pros & cons:
PROS
- proximity to stadiums - approx 15 min walk along Occidental through Pioneer Square
- rooms, room with 2 queens was a great size, was clean and comfortable
- staff provided good customer service

CONS
- don't get a room on Cherry St side near the alley. The garbage trucks arrived between 10pm - midnight and they were very loud.
- rooms generally weren't sound proof so if you like silence, you will be challenged to sleep.
- $28 valet parking but I assume all hotels in downtown area would be similar.

If you are going to Seattle to just go to shopping district, you should look for a hotel near that area but if you are doing that and going to a game, this is a great place.

Rather surprised this hotel is not ranked higher because we felt this hotel was excellent for several reasons: good value (although we used points), great pub-like place for breakfast that was very good and reasonably priced, excellent location for walking to the downtown shopping area, staff were VERY helpful, cabs were always easy to get. Made dinner reservations for us to eat at Salty's and had the restaurant's limo van pick us up and return us - excellent service! One of the top 10 in our book!

Let me start off by saying the hotel is great! Newly renovated and everything was shining. We had two rooms side by side and the room with the two queen beds was huge and the beds were very comfortable. The only thing I hated was the noise, we were on a lower floor and you can hear EVERYTHING from the streets. The windows would also not close all the way and you can feel the cold air coming from there.
The hotel does have a very nice fitness room and indoor pool.
The female staff were very nice but there were two guys at the front desk that were ignorant and not friendly. (middle aged guy with dark hair especially)
They also do not provide any transportation anywhere, they told us to walk and the neighborhood had a lot of weird people and was told by others it was not safe.
Overall, hotel was fine and I would probably stay again. Hopefully they'll train some of the staff better.

Great hotel in old "Alaska building." Just renovated so you get the ambiance of an old hotel, yet the newness of a just completed renovation. And the desk staff couldn't be nicer, or more efficient. We'll be back. Parking can be an issue, and a bit expensive so plan in advance. Highly recommended. Beds extremely comfortable - you will not have any trouble sleeping.
