The staff was very patient with my concerns about my credit card. The staff at the front desk were also very nice to me. Mattress was a little too firm for me.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about us! I am sorry you had some issues with the credit card, but glad to see our staff took care of that right away. In addition, we have already replaced some of our mattresses this year and will replace the rest by the beginning of next year.

We hope to see you again here soon!

When I called to make a reservation, I was assured that the Executive Inn was not just for business travelers. So my wife and I spent our anniversary there. We got a very nice room with a view to the west, of the Space Needle, Seattle Center, and Olympic Mountains (weather permitting). The surroundings are a little rough, including street demolition/construction while we were there. But we were able to walk to the the monorail and even took an extended walk to the waterfront one day. The room was very nice and the staff were pleasant. I probably would have given it five stars if not for the daily parking fee of $15, which seems excessive. No wonder the parking garage was nearly empty.

Room Tip: Best views are on the west side.

Thank you so much for the kind words regarding your stay with us! With our location next to the Space Needle, we get all clientele with us and we make sure everyone leaves happy! As parking is at a premium downtown, we feel the parking charge is nominal compared to other hotels in downtown Seattle, which can charge in excess of $30 per night. Next time you come, ask for our Eat, Sleep and Park package which includes parking and breakfast. This is available for just a small amount over our Best Available Rate.

We hope to see you again! Thanks again for staying with us!

Best,

We contracted with BW to hold a scientific conference of 200 fisheries biologists and scientists for four days. We used the Grand Ballroom for the oral presentations in a theater arrangement and the space and chairs were fully used. We used two screens raised on risers, and they were placed on either side of the speaker. This helped attendees to clearly view the information being presented and compensate for the two columns in the middle of the room. We also used the columns as aisles to minimize the dead space behind the columns.

We used the back of the room for two lines of poster boards and the two side rooms (Whidbey-Shaw and Lee-Vashon) for both posters and for lunches. All of this was cozy, but the BW staff was more than accommodating to work around the spaces and with the organizing committee. For lunches, BW staff had buffets and table rounds in each of the side rooms and also used the restaurant as overflow areas. We also contraced for the all-day break package which was kept stocked with a variety of fresh foods, coffee, and drinks.

The food was excellent. The catering staff prepared themed lunches that were tasty and fresh and were very much complimented by attendees. We also had two h'ordeurve parties, and the choices cooked up by the chef and kitchen were delicious. I will definitely consider using the catering component if I have any other functions in the downtown area.

We liked the location of the facility as it is away from the congestion and hub-bub of downtown Seattle. There is plenty of parking, at least during the winter days, and the hotel is near bus lines and reachable from the airport by taking the light rail and monorail. We also chose this facility because of its affordable costs--both in terms of rooms and catering--they outcompeted other nearby places and we did not suffer in quality at all.

Overall, the best part of working with the BW was the friendliness, efficiency, and eagerness of the catering and facilities staff to work with the conference organizers. Minor problems were quickly solved, the costs were clearly identified, meals were easily worked out, and all of this made it easier for the organziers to execute the conference. Attendees remarked on the high quality of the food and the seamlessness of the facility and staff in supporting the meeting.

Room Tip: Get a room on the Space Needle side.

I have stayed at this hotel on several occasions over the past few years - both on my own and with family members - when visiting relatives in Washington State. It is in an ideal location within walking distance of space needle, science museum, monorail and across the road from the 'duck ride' - a must if you visit Seattle! The rooms have always been clean and comfortable and the staff helpful and friendly. I was disappointed to find that the restaurant has changed from offering breakfast and dinner with waitress service to self-service breakfast and limited fast food evening snacks. A sign of the times I guess which is unfortunate. Apart from this I would highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Rooms with a view of the Space Needle are a must.

Thank you for continuing to stay with us when your travels take you to Seattle! You will be happy to know, we have debuted a brand new menu in our restaurant for dinner, featuring much more than our delicious burgers. Now we also feature Northwest favorites such as Salmon, Meatloaf and much, much more. We look forward to seeing you again next time!

Great location, walking distance to Pike Place, Space Needle, and Children's Museum. Staff were very friendly, rooms clean and spacious, nice to have the sink outside of the actual bathroom. Traveled with our two girls ages 3 & 5. The only downside was the fitness room/spa was not clean, we went in once and did not return to it. The restaurant for the buffet breakfast was nice and clean and the variety was great, well worth the price. The staff were excellent and provided wonderful service, very friendly, remembered our names and what we liked to drink with breakfast. Front desk staff were courteous and prompt. Would've appreciated some suggestions on where to eat etc. Found recommendations online. This is our go-to hotel in Seattle.

Room Tip: One side has views of the Space Needle the other side is tops of lower buildings behind the hotel. W...

Most reviews talk about this site's proximity to the Space Needle, which to true, but it is also close to the convention center and downtown. Nice large clean room ,comfortable bed, and a full service buffet breakfast and lounge. Josh's service in the lounge was great.

I stayed at the Best Western Plus Executive Inn at the Space Needle in October 2011. Not only were the accommodations splendidly comfortable, but the front desk staff was particularly helpful. I had one of my sleep-time distresses of stuffiness and the help staff helped find me some relief. In addition to this extraordinary effort beyond the call of duty, the location is exceptional for a walk into the downtown business district. If you go down 5th on your way you will pass an unique business that looks like a restaurant, but is actually an advertising agency. The staff encouraged the walk past and it is the height of Seattle weirdness. Enjoy Seattle and stay at the Best Western Plus.
