“Great location”
Reviewed 24 May 2014 via mobile

If traveling with older children, this is the place to stay . Big rooms they get there own bed. You can close the door to your room. There is room to hang out and more than one tv. If your are a jw. Marriott person you will turn your nose up. But for a dad, the peace and quite in the room is worth it. Breakfast has a variety to meet all taste. Location is ideal. If you drive a car parking on street is free after 6pm-8am. Staff helpful, rooms clean no problem with noise

My husband and I and my two adult children stay here in a two bedroom suite for three nights prior to our Alasakan cruise. I love the location, just across the street from the Wooden Boat Museum on Lake Union and a short bus ride or a nice long walk to downtown. The area is safe and very clean. Summer hotel rates in Seattle are pricey, as the suite was although the suite was a little less than two comparable hotel rooms. We had a nice sitting area and kitchen which we just used for snacking and tea. Breakfast was included in the rate, the breakfast was adequate with a liquid eggs, ham, muffin, yogurt and cereal selection plus fresh fruit and juice and coffee and tea.The hotel is very clean, the lobby is a soaring atrium, and the staff is friendly and helpful. The only cons were there was not enough electrical outlets in the bedrooms to charge all of the electric devices we now all carry. The two queen beds and the King bed was extremely comfortable but the sofa bed was uncomfortable for an adult to sleep in. The toilet, tub area was separated from the sink vanity area which was nice but the toilet tub area felt like a closet. All said this is a great hotel and we would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Recently stayed at this Residence Inn at the end of April. I booked a 2 bedroom suite with two bathrooms. The room was fantastic and very clean. It even included a small balcony and small kitchen area including a dishwasher. The hot free breakfast was also a nice benefit and provided a great start to our day. The hotel is very close to the Space Needle and easy access to highway 5 as well. The lobby area is massive and has lots of seating for breakfast including easy chairs and sofas. I would say the only issue i had was the fee for parking at over $30.00 including tax! I did not think you could tax something like parking. I also wonder why hotels charge so much for parking. Other than the parking (which was in a covered garage) I would highly recommend this Residence Inn.

We stayed there recently on a trip to Seattle.
The atrium and common areas were updated, looked much brighter.
The rooms were clean and well stocked, everything worked.
The breakfast was good, something for everyone.
The pool was great, heated and clean. Watch out on the poolside tiled surround, its slippery, but manageable.
People that work there again went out of their way to help us whenever we needed it. A pleasant experience.
We were close to downtown, if not right there.
It took only a $13 fare to get to Safeco Field, a quick 7 min trip to the game.
Nice option if you wish to leave the car and maybe have an adult beverage while enjoying the Mariners game.
The suite was perfect to relax while the little one was asleep, maybe have a drink before bed.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the lake.

This hotel is walking distance to Lake Union, there are three restaurants across the street, and a short drive to many other key spots in Seattle. Easy to access from the freeway but, you have to pay $25 a day for parking. Rooms are large with balconies. The hotel serves great daily breakfast and some nights a light dinner which is included in with your room rate. Strong wifi too. Great hotel for a business traveler.

Stayed here with our almost two-year old. What makes this a great location for a family with small children: spacious rooms. We even got a small rubber penguin in our crib, which meant she had something to play with for bath time. The breakfast buffet is extraordinary because of the wide array of choices. The pool has a 3' deep "kiddie pool" which our little one could stand in, right next to the regular pool and tub. Best of all: next to the pool there's a playroom (Wheelhouse/Activity Center" which is child-safe (no outlets!) with lots of toys: not only books and crayons/coloring books, but a table for duplos/legos, a wooden toy train, a toy kitchen, a foosball table and couches/TV/xbox for the bigger ones. No better way to spend a couple of hours on a really rainy afternoon. On the other side there's a guest laundry, so it was easy enough to wait for a load while playing. There's also a small playground basically across the street, right by the lake. Lastly, this is in walking distance from some very cool restaurants/shops... We even went to the Space Needle and Pike Place Market just with the stroller (20/25 minutes respectively).

Room Tip: We had a one bedroom with a lake view on the sixth floor - no issues with noise from the street. Als...
