Great Vacation

It was a great location to see the sights in downtown and the waterfront. You still need to use a car, bus or cab to most of the sights. The staff was very accomodating and helpful.

average

the staff was friendly but i found unpopped popcorn and gum wrappers inside the sheets of my bed the first night, so it's not the cleanest place. the location is also a bit awkward if you are walking to/from the space needle - it's on the other side of a major road (aurora) which only has one road crossing it (denny way), so you always have to back track there.

Seatte Trip

I would have preferred to stay in the Ride Free Zone of Seattle's downtown area but this hotel was out of that zone. (This should noted in highlights of location). There was blatant [*] nearby around the hotel. Not to say the hotel was rented by the hour and I did not see [*] in the hotel lobby.

all was okay

I was impressed with the entry and front desk area. Also, since hadn't stayed at a Holiday Inn for years, was impressed with the upgrades to linens and room condition from years ago. We were very busy and did not have time to see the pool or anything.

Just if you go to Seattle area plan on lots of walking because parking and driving is rough. But, this location is easy to get to the needle, the downtown and to the market. We enjoy it immensely, but we are physically healthy. They would not let us park a u-haul there, and you have to pay to park a car. We were helping out daughter move and that would have helped us a lot.

clean and economic sleepover

I would suggest asking for a map of the city at the front desk. They will also suggest places to eat.

Great location for the price

This location let me sight see without the need of a vehicle. I walked everywhere - and I love to walk. I felt comfortable everywhere I went.

The Space Needle was less than a mile away and Pike Place Market was just over a mile. I should have checked out the waterfront a bit - will have to plan that on my next trip.

Great Experiance

Used hotel as a one night stay, on either side of a 8 day cruise out of Seattle Wa. Was able to get a room well before check in time, which our party of four appreciated after leaving the ship at 10am. We also went to Seattle Aqurium for a couple of hours. Had bad experiance getting Orange Cab Company to this hotel. Gave up after 45 minutes and called Yellow Cab. Emerald Grill, next door and which is affiliated with Hotel, had great tasting food and good service.
