Really nice, grand old hotel in the heart of Seattle. Location made it easy to walk to most major sites, including the Pikes Market area. Public rooms and lobby are grand and beautiful, styled in an English country manor house look. Georgian room was beautiful to dine in, though we just had breakfast, which was good. Hot items on buffet are weekends only, otherwise, it's off menu or continental buffet on weekdays. We were upgraded to an Executive Suite and it was spacious, separate bedroom, living room, and good sized bathroom. Service is fantastic, super-friendly and very helpful staff all around.
My only critiques are that the overnight parking is pricey, $47 valet. Also, the rooms need renovating. They are dated and tired, with floral sofas, brass and glass lamps, older furnishings, and worn carpeting. Bathroom was ok, granite counters, marble, but I didn't like that there was a bathtub/shower combo with shower curtains, would really like a walk-in shower instead. Also, our heater was a little noisy.
Favorite thing of all is the house car. We used it twice, and they were timely and it was really convenient to have available. We made sure to call at "off" times, not around dinner rush, and only waited about 10 minutes to be picked up and brought back to the hotel. Nice touch!
