I booked this hotel because I was traveling with a friend, and with an 8 night stay, we wanted to be together in the same room but also wanted to enjoy some privacy as well. The Residence offered 2 bedrooms and 2 separate baths, plus a full kitchen and living area. It was like our own little villa. The bonuses were many. I spent a long time researching downtown Seattle rates and rooms, and even though this location was a bit further away from Pike Market or the waterfront, it was still a GREAT location!!! The rate included a hot breakfast with many choices every morning, which really adds value. In addition, 3 nights of the week included a Manager's Welcome Reception that offered beverages and snacks, but these weren't snacks...the food offered could've substituted for a light dinner! Again, added value. We didn't rent a car, so we had to take other modes of transportation. The hotel is only a few steps from the Trolley, which is an advantage when it's raining and/or you don't feel like walking. Walking was great, though...it's a very walkable city. The hotel also sits on Lake Union, so it's a very pretty setting right across the street. There are a few good restaurants within a few steps as well. We felt VERY safe here. As with ANY operation of business, just as in life, you have those folks that go above and beyond, and those who just get away with doing the minimum. Unfortunately, there were a few Front Desk Clerks who shouldn't be in the customer service industry, but I just kill 'em with kindess! Overall, however, this hotel met 99.9% of my expectations.
