“Great location, great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2012

This hotel is ideal for someone looking for a central location within walking distance to most everything in downtown Seattle. The rooms are clean and modern. The breakfast was very nice. If you have a car, parking is free, which is a rarity in downtown. They also have lemonade in the lobby during the day which is nice when you return from a day of exploring. The front desk staff were quite helpful and directed us to a delicious restaurant just around the corner from the hotel. We would definitely stay at this hotel if ever in downtown Seattle again.

Great location! Less than 10 minute walk to the Space Needle and Pacific Science Center. Less than a half hour to Pike Street Market. If you're taking a cruise, you could practically wheel your luggage to the cruise ship terminal (but ask the desk for a limo, it's inexpensive). The staff is helpful with area questions.

It's a nice, but not great building. That's why you save so much. You're not going to be in the room much anyway, and the savings of nearby hotels will pay for a really worthwhile meal in an upscale restaurant.

Definitely check out Tilikum Place Cafe, which is only a few blocks west. Great food.

The only item of complaint was the wireless Internet service. It seems you have to log in continuously, the signal is week, and it is slow. There is free pc access in the lobby, so this was not much of a drawback.

The hotel was perfect. Room very nice & comfy. The breakfast was excellent. Karrie at the reception was very helpful. The hotel was not very far from the port where we had to board the ship. They even allowed us to keep our luggage on the day we arrived back.

This was our first trip to Seattle and we only needed a place to stay for one night before our cruise. We have used LaQuinta in other locations, and this one did not disappoint! Within easy walking distance of our choice of restaurant and the Space Needle. I loved the free parking in the garage under the hotel. In the morning we walked to Pike's Market and back. We plan to come back next year for more sightseeing and will likely stay here.
There was plenty of room for us, the view was great and the breakfast was filling (and yummy). Staff was very friendly and helpful with directions to the places we wanted to go.

Location was perfect for walking all over or catching a bus. Love that you dont pay to park your car!!! The staff was just fabulous, so helpful and friendly. All was just perfect. The room was large and updated. The breakfast was the standard buffet, but it was plentiful and fine for what I needed. Will stay again on my next visit.

I believe being located in the west has something to do w/this La Quinta being far superior than others. They recycle at breakfast, use real dishes, & have fresher options than many others.I'm gluten free & could find other choices than cereal, muffins, & waffles. The ambience was relaxing & warm. Our only complaint if you could call it one is that there wasn't a fridge. Staff & location were great!

This La Quinta has been completely updated and remodeled--you come in to the lobby, and a cute puffer fish in the aquarium is there to welcome you. The front desk clerk was very friendly and the computer stations nearby are handy and accessible. The room was very nice as well and the bed was comfortable. I will definitely stay here again next time I drive up to Seattle.

Room Tip: I usually request a room in a higher floor.
