“Nice stay near convention center”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2011

Very comfortable room and bed. Luxurious bathroom. Nice view from the upper floors. The hotel is located about 1 block from the convention center. I had originally thought that the route to the convention center was indoors, but it is actually outdoors. However, the entire path is protected by awnings and/or glass ceilings. No need for an umbrella! If you DO need an umbrella, there is a full-size one provided as a courtesy in your room, so you don't need to pack one. You also don't need to pack a bathrobe. I am usually more of an economy traveller, so I missed having a fridge and microwave in the room. The button operated window shades were cool--the button is by your bed. There is NOT a dedicated airport shuttle van, but there is a "downtown airporter" shuttle van that goes to all the major downtown hotels, including the Grand Hyatt which costs around $25 each way.

It is always so great when someone can take time out of their busy day to post a review about their stay, so for that thank you very much.

We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. It is nice and convenient to be so close to the Convention Center. And you are right, no umbrella needed as the walk is fully covered.

The “Downtown Airporter” is nice and convenient for our guests to travel to and from the airport. It is only $15 each way and does not take long. Another option that is new to the city is our Link Light Rail. This goes from SeaTac Airport to Westlake Center (which is about 2 blocks away) and only costs $2.50 each way. This is a great new feature to Seattle.

There are many aspects of our guest rooms that make it easy for the business traveler. We are appreciative that you enjoyed the amenities that we provide and hope that you will return soon to take advantage of our fabulous rooms.

Again, thank you and we hope to see you in Seattle again soon.

I stayed here recently for a business trip and loved it. The design is gorgeous and welcoming, the desk staff charming, and it is truly full service. Very W like in terms of the feeling, which made it a restful place at the end of a long business day. Highly recommended.

After this trip, I'm realizing that I enjoy more of the boutique hotel experience vs. the convention hotel style properties. This is a nice and predictable product and if you enjoy Grand Hyatts, this one will be very similar to the other experiences. The service is good, the rooms are comfortable and it's clean and in a great location. It's just not as personalized of an experience.

Hotel staff was very prompt and efficient from the valet parking area to the check in. Room was available before check in time which is always a plus!
Couldnt ask for a better location for shopping and seeing the sights
Had a corner suite with an adjoining room for 2 teenagers worked out great!
close to nice restaurants

Perfect hotel I'm downtown Seattle.

Yes, it's a little pricey but the room and view made the price worth it. The hotel overall is modern and contemporary. They have great professional staff and are over eager to help. The hotel also has the Ruth Chris restaurant and I fully recommend it.

The hotel is in a perfect location and is within walking distance to Pikes Market, couple of movie theaters, and near the downtown shopping centers. Love this place.

We stayed here for two nights at the beginning of our honeymoon. Loved our room, the bed was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in. Our bathroom was also amazing, huge bath and separate shower, spotlessly clean too. The staff were very professional and helpful also. Seattle is gorgeous, was sad to leave the hotel and the city!

I stayed two nights in the Grand Hyatt Seattle in January, 2011 in an Emerald Suite. My room was on a corner on the 30th (top) floor. The views were great out onto Elliott Bay and at the Space Needle. The room was more than spacious. The bath had a separate shower. I thought the rate was reasonable for the size and quality of the room. I heard no noise from the hall or from adjacent rooms.

Things less than perfect included the lighting which was relatively dim. There was no good reading lamp by a chair or sofa. The HVAC was drafty and cool. I finally got it to an acceptable warmth by setting the two thermostats to 75 degrees. Wi-Fi internet access cost $10 per night. It should have been free.

The hotel is two blocks from the Westlake station on the light rail line. I was able to use light rail to get to the airport at a cost of $2.50. Trains run at least every 15 minutes and the travel time from Westlake to SeaTac was 38 minutes. The Westlake station is part of the bus tunnel system and I used buses to get around downtown for free.

The hotel has three eating options: 1) Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, 2) Starbucks and 3) a so-called deli with an assortment of cafeteria-style foods. I found the deli unappealing. I had a decent sandwich at Starbucks. I had two excellent and reasonably price breakfasts at Ruth's plus a light early dinner there. I was pleased with Ruth's on all counts.

Downtown Seattle has a lot of interesting things to see and do, including an abundance of restaurants. I visited the impressive Central Library and the Art Museum. A disappointment was the Sculpture Garden north of downtown which had very few sculptures.

Thank you for taking time to write a review about your recent stay with us. It is pleasing to hear that you had such an enjoyable time while in Seattle. I do agree that the views from our hotel are amazing!

It’s unfortunate to hear of your issues with how dim the lighting is. We are aware that the lighting in the rooms could be improved upon and are working on finding new options.

The dining options are great and Ruth’s Chris truly is an amazing restaurant. Next time you are staying with us you need to check out our In-Room Dining as well, it is fantastic.
Being centrally located is definitely a plus and we are glad that you liked being so close to everything in the city, especially with the addition of the light rail.

Again, thank you and we hope to welcome you back soon.
