I stayed when the hotel was 100% full over a Friday and Saturday night. Online I had booked a room that was supposed to be facing the water and it cost more than the "regular" rate. When we arrived at our room it was facing the elevator/stairs that lead to town. I was not happy! I called and let them know I had booked a room facing the water. They aplogized and asked me to come to the desk to update to a new room.
The next room we go to, once again, was NOT facing the water but had a balcony. I was very upset but had to get going to attend the baseball game. I figured I would give up the room with a view and hassle for the regular rate instead at check out.
On a note about complaints about a ship being in the way, the only thing I can think of is that perhaps the cruise ships
We received the bill under the door and not surprisingly, they charged us the higher rate. We went to the desk and barely had to argue our side of the story. She quickly apologized and gave us an OUTSTANDING lower rate. A rate that was no where to be found online. For that, I give them kudos for fixing their mistake.
So if you are booking online and request a room facing the water, be sure to request that upon check in, do not assume you will get it.
Other than that, the lobby was simple, yet beautiful. The lobby music was a trendy/ electronica type music that was played too loud for even my 30 year old ears.
The rooms were remarkably clean and the TV was great. My complaint about the tv channel selection is there is no Weather Channel and no Fox Sports Network. The bathrooms were spacious and the hot water was immediate and lasted. The room itself was a little more plain than I had expected but comfortable. I was able to pick up wifi on my iPod Touch at times and that was convenient.
We only ate one time at the hotel restaurant and that was for breakfast. I ordered the Challah French Toast and it was the best dish I have ever encountered. I'm not usually a consumer of such sweets but was feeling indulgent. It was heaven on a plate!
If you have a car with you, be aware that the overnight parking fee is around $35 but well worth it. The valet folk are super friendly and your vehicle is easily accesible. Very much worth the price.
I loved the location of the hotel. It was right across from the water and close to shopping and eateries. We walked a lot including to Safeco Field, Pikes Market and the Space Needle. If you don't mind the walking, it's a perfect location.
