My friends and I rented two rooms for four nights on a guys' weekend. We had a very positive experience.
The location is very good. While not walkable to Pike Market, it is walkable to all that Seattle Center has to offer and a variety of good restaurants. A cab ride to the market will run $6 or $8, so you still come out ahead compared to what you could spend for a room elsewhere.
We thought the rates were reasonable. The rooms seemed very clean. The rooms have microwaves and refrigerators. However, many rooms in the building don't have A/C (just the top two floors, I believe), but the nights dipped into the 60's, so we opened our windows. (You might then contend with some street noise though.) One neat thing is that the hotel has a rooftop deck with GREAT views of the Seattle skyline and the Space Needle. Very cool.
The staff at the front desk were very friendly and helpful. The business center is free and convenient. (I believe you have to pay $5 for WIFI, though). There is a Starbucks attached, and a burger place next door (for midnight munchies). No swimming pool, no free breakfast.
I recommend this hotel. It is clean, it is newer (6 years old), it is convenient, and it is affordable.More
