We stayed here for two nights while on a trip to Seattle to watch a Seahawks game. The hotel is conveniently located to the stadium which was only a couple minute walk away. The area around the hotel is what you’d expect in the downtown area of a large city, with plenty of homeless people. As we arrived and were climbing out of our car in front of the hotel when we were approached by the first homeless gentleman we’d see on this trip looking for a handout. When we arrived there were already about three cars parked in front near the valet, so we parked a few cars down. I’d imagine we wouldn’t have been approached if we had been able to park right at the valet desk. Check-in was fairly straight forward, although we were checking in with friends who were staying in their own room, and they got our rooms mixed up. This took about 20 minutes to fix and a bit of frustration because when we got on the elevator, our keys wouldn’t allow us to go to our floor. Someone on a higher floor called the elevator, so we had to ride up and down a bit until we could get off and have the problem corrected. The room was large with a nice sitting area. Everything was clean. Our room faced into an alley which was okay because we were only there to sleep, but it was quite loud briefly each night when the garbage truck showed up with a lot of smashing and crashing somewhere between 10pm and midnight. We are quite picky about the products we put on our bodies, and the shampoo/conditioner/body lotion was well below average by today’s standards with them offering Paul Mitchell (I think) products loaded with chemicals and artificial scents. The room had plenty of towels and such, and bedding was comfortable including a selection of pillows. One of our friends in the other room has an allergy to feathers, so housekeeping supplied non-feather bedding the next night. We ate breakfast at the restaurant downstairs and the service was excellent. The breakfast was very reasonably priced (about $10 per meal) and quite good, and came out quickly. We ate breakfast there both days. We stopped in to have drinks in their bar one night and found it extremely pricy at around $10 per drink. They were also out of all of our first choices, and when they were out of some of our second choices the girls just grabbed a glass of wine and that was it for the night. Not sure how things were going to play out for the Seahawks crowd the next day with them being out of so many common drinks! Parking here seemed really expensive at around $25/day, but what are you going do right? Our friends had selected this hotel, and we thought it was extremely expensive for what we got. The location is hard to beat when attending a Seahawks game, but we’ll likely look elsewhere for our next trip down there.
