“A lovely place to be”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2014

Courtyard at Pioneer Square met all my expectations from the warm welcome of the staff, to a comfortable room with nice linens and good restaurant attached. I was in Seattle for Business and I found this a lovely place to land each night after long, long days. The hotel is centrally located so I was able to see some of the sights of Seattle in my very limited spare time. This hotel felt much more upscale than you might expect for a Courtyard. I loved the renovated old, building. It had lots of charm and all the model comforts.

We loved the suite. The bed was top quality. The bathroom was better than good. Lots of room. A dining room table and chairs. A loveseat and chair, with a hassock. A nice desk area. Microwave and a small, empty refrigerator. There is a Starbucks across the street, so the below average in-room coffee service has a close alternative. We bought a bottle of prosecco from the lobby's small refreshment area. Beware of the $27 valet parking though.

Thank you for your review of the Pioneer Square Courtyard. I’m glad that you enjoyed your suite. As you mentioned, valet parking is $28 plus tax for an overnight stay. Although our valet parking will be the most convenient, there are other parking options nearby, for example other parking garages and street parking. We hope to see you again soon!

Pioneer square is far on the south side, close to the soccer stadium, but only 6 or 7 blocks from pikes market, waterfront district. Nice place close by for coffee and brunch. Great staff, very nice rooms, a little small, but richly appointed. Our room on the 14th floor looked over port of Seattle and Bainbridge Island. Great place to stay

This was a pleasant surprise. They are still in the midst of renovating, but they are doing a very nice job and this hotel feels more upscale than most Courtyards. Don't get me wrong - I like Courtyard hotels, but this one feels closer to a Marriott. The room was freshly renovated, and did not have those dreaded motion sensor thermostats, so I slept well. I will definitely stay here again.

Nice Courtyard in a renovated hotel. It's about 15 minutes walk from Pike Place Market. The location was good, and it was a block away from the train. I would stay there again. The front desk staff were very helpful as well.

Stayed in Seattle for a weekend. Loved the location of the Courtyard. We walked to Pikes Place everyday. There was a Starbucks rights across the street, a lounge and restaurant in the hotel and lots of restaurants nearby. We took the light rail from the airport and the Courtyard was just 1 block from the Pioneer Square station.

We were some of the 750,000 people in town for the Seahawks' Superbowl Victory Celebration in downtown Seattle, and we were lucky to find a room at such a nice hotel within walking distance of the parade and Century Link Stadium. Our room was spacious, tasteful, clean and comfortable. There was bit of traffic noise from 2nd Avenue, but that's to be expected when staying downtown. The pool was small but perfect for our kids: clean and comfortably warm. The city was crazy, the hotel was full, the staff was insanely busy, but every employee we interacted with was extremely friendly, helpful and professional, from valet to housekeeping to cashier at the Bistro, and especially Phillipe at the front desk who was so calm and kind and efficient when dealing with what could have been a disastrous reservation snafu. No one on the staff acted stressed, rushed, impatient when dealing with our requests. Everyone bent over backwards to help us with smiles on their faces - from fetching vehicles, to delivering rollaway beds, to finding chocolate milk for the kids when the Bistro was PACKED with outside parade-goers in addition to hotel guests. The staff at The Courtyard Seattle Downtown/Pioneer Square turned what could have been a stressful, miserable experience for our party of 3 adults and 5 kids, into one of the best hotel stays we've ever had. I'm a Courtyard Marriott enthusiast now! Go Hawks!

Room Tip: Our corner room on 2nd avenue was very spacious, but there was a bit of traffic noise.
