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

checking out colleges in seattle

Top notch. For a hotel in the heart of downtown you can't beat the price. This was the first time we ever flew into a big city and didn't rent a car. Took the light rail from the airport then had a nice 20 min stroll to the hotel. Cornish college was only 10 min away and the space needle was also only 20 min in the other direction. Staff was extremely friendly. I highly recommend this hotel. Richard from montana

Holiday Inn Express & Suites SEATTLE-CITY CENTER

This Holiday Inn served us very well when we visited Seattle for a Seahawks game. The staff was very helpful and provided very good directions for getting around the city. The Space Needle and Pike's Market is within walking distance so if you have a few extra days while staying at this location, you'll have plenty to do. The included breakfasts were very good and for dinner, the Emerald Grill was excellent.

Great Hotel

My friend and I stayed for 4 nights while visiting Seattle. We were very impressed. The breakfast options were amazing and there was variety each day. Our rooms were also very clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Only negative things were the bathroom (where the toilet and shower are) was small and had to pay for parking. But overall, great hotel.

Excellent Location

Great location and price within Seattle. Within walking distance of Space Needle and train station. Staff was excellent in assisting with questions and travel recommendations. Underground gated parking a plus.

Great stay!

We stayed here after a half marathon in Seattle and it was great. It was within walking distance to the space needle which was awesome because that was where the race was starting. The room was very clean and the staff was very friendly. The breakfast was good too, however, we did the rapid checkout and left our room keys in the room not realizing we would need the room key to access the breakfast room downstairs. Next time we'll just turn our keys in at the front desk.

not worth it

I was extremely disappointed in the hotel. For the amount I had to pay it was upsetting. I could have booked a hotel with another place for cheaper and better accommodations

Repeat Guests

We have stayed at this hotel in the past and were satisfied enough with our visit not to take a risk with less at another hotel. We were in the area for a wedding in the Cascade Mtn. area and to revisit Seattle. The location of the hotel is convenient to tourist activities. There is reasonable parking if you choose to drive around. Our room was upgraded at no cost upon our arrival. It was clean and we found all of the staff we dealt with to be polite and helpful. We especially love the well supplied breakfast.
