Great experience

We wanted to experience the great Seattle for past few years and finally had the chance to fly up via Ontario airport, Calif. We took Alaskan Air, 6am flight and arrived early by little past 8am. Weather was great, clear sky embraced us on our 1st 2days in the city. Holiday Inn Express was only 0.3 miles from Sky Needle and Chihuly Garden and Glass. Our room had direct view of the needle. We walked to the Sky Needle, which was only 4 blocks and saved parking fees. From here, you can take mono rail into downtown, Pikes Place and water front, where many great attractions are located. Although, regular check in time is 3pm, staff at the Holiday Inn was excellent and helped us to check in early at 12pm. Since, we had early flight, we were a little tires by then. In Seattle, you must plan well to save parking fees, otherwise, these parking fees cost a big portion of your expenses. So, staying at the Holiday Inn and leaving the rental car at the hotel was not only saving the expense, but, helped exercise, to.

Great value!!!

Great location and value. It was a central location to all the attractions we wanted to see and was not too far from great food. Would stay here again if we ever came back to Seattle. FYI, near seems like the only gas station around was the one right near the hotel.

Convenience & Great Staff!

We were amazed at the convenience of the location to all of the sites we wanted to visit - and we had a spectacular view of the space needle from our room! The staff was great and helped us with a shuttle to the Mariners game almost as soon as we walked in the door. I would stay here again.

An extremely great deal for the price.

I live a few hours north of Seattle on Whidbey Island and have chosen this particular Holiday Inn as my choice for convenient nights in Seattle when Im not really wanting to make the long drive back home after a sports game or concert. Its great for my needs in Seattle, Im usually not needing to stay anywhere extraordinary..yet still not wanting to stay at a scuzzy hotel. I recently stayed here for an 8AM surgery at the Seattle Surgery Center(made it there in less than 15 mins in morning weekday traffic)and was very satisfied with our stay. For the very low price of this hotel, I got free parking (youll pay up to $40-$60/night at other hotels), free wifi (another amenitiy a lot of hotels have the nerve to charge for now), a surprisingly expansive hot breakfast with all the sausages, eggs, fruit, yogurt, and other breakfast items you could think of. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the front desk was generous enough to give us a 1 PM check out, although we didn't end up needing it. I appreciated it though. I will actually be booking another room here for a concert as soon as I finish writing this review.

In Seattle, but not IN Seattle

Decent location, but a cab is definitely needed to get anywhere you would want to be. Average Holiday Inn
