So, as many hotels, there were good and bad things with this hotel. I was in Seattle to visit friends that were in the Navy and to do a little business. While the Residence Inn was a little higher in price than I would like for it to have been, I thought it would be a nice trade-off since there is free breakfast,a few free dinner receptions, a full kitchen, a laundry room, and free Internet. So, I would stay here again, but have lower expectations as to food quality. So, the positives: (1) Good location- it is about an mile walk to the City center with the Space Needle and museums. Two to three minute walk to the trolley which will take you downtown for $2.50 and then walking distance easily down Pine to Pike Place Market. (2) The kitchen cuts down on costs- can bring leftivers back or pick up groceries. There is a Whole Foods on the trolley stop back to the hotel (Denny). (3) The wired Internet was quite speedy which helped for work (I brought an Etnernet cable but there was one hanging in the closet), (4) Good sized laundry room and you can get change at the front desk,and (5) Excellent service by the front desk employees. The two negatives: (1) The food was adequate. I was not expecting high quality, but this was by far the worst food I have had at a Residence Inn. If they have to cook it, it is not very good. Stay with muffins, toast or bagel, etc. The OJ was like orange colored water. and (2) The lake view I paid extra for was not much of a lake view- think partially obstructed view. Overall, I would stay here again, but would know that I would need to bring in more stuff to eat. The staff was extremely helpful and quick for the business services I used at the hotel.
