business trip

My wife and I stayed here over the weekend on a business retreat. It was well located and had easy access to downtown, the space needle, and any number of good restaurants. Free parking doesn't hurt either.

Okay for one night.

We stayed here for one night prior to our Alaska Cruise. Its an okay hotel. Looks kind of dumpy from the outside but inside its fairly nice. The rooms are ok. The coffee maker still had a coffee pod from the last guest. The sliding door to the little balcony looked like it had been broken into and the hotel fix was to put a block of wood to keep the door from being open. The hotel staff is very helpful and friendly. Nice use of two apple computers to print off space needle tickets. Complimentary breakfast wasn't too bad for one stay. There was enough space in the breakfast area for many people to enjoy the food and watch the news.

just what i needed

I was traveling alone to attend a conference being held at a different (fancier) hotel. This hotel was only a few minutes' walk away and a lot less expensive. Room was clean, bed was comfortable, plumbing worked, internet was free, hotel was quiet. Didn't need anything else. Downside: my room faced the office building behind the hotel, so I kept the blinds drawn some of the time. I'd stay there again if I have business in Seattle.

Good value, should be rated higher!

Family road trip covering three states and four motels/hotels. This La Quinta Seattle Downtown was a standout! Location is great to walk to Spave Needle, longer walk from Pike Place Market but it was not grueling, and I am not a walker. Whole Foods is only 2 blocks away, and a Walgreens about 5 blocks away. In two days, we did not move our car! Decor was boutique hotel style. Spacious lounges and work area with 2 macs and printers available for checking email and printing boarding passes, etc. Free parking, wi-fi, probably many more amenities (such as their fitness room) that we did not try. The free breakfast was more than a continental breakfast This had cold and hot cereals, breads, biscuits and gravy, and a make-your-own waffle station. And, of course, coffees and teas, and convenient take-out cups. There was also lemon water and lemonade in the lobby, and fresh-baked cookies in the evening. This was a good value for our family and I won't hesitate to hook again.

History in the making

This hotel has great value. The price was right, the location was great for the price and the beds were fantastically comfortable. The free breakfast is definitely adequate...coffee, juice, milk, several breads, bagels, sweet rolls, oatmeal, hard cooked eggs, yogurt, 3 different kinds of cereal, waffles and more. No big complaints there! The lobby area, breakfast room, internet area, and workout room are clean and very comfortable. Always fresh cookies, iced lemon water, and lemonade are/is available in the lobby area. The front desk personnel do their job,for the most part, (we had one issue) but I wouldn't say they do anything above and beyond it. We arrived around 6pm on a Saturday evening, check-in was flawless. We were in town for the Packers/Seahawks game (or semblance of a game, anyway) and only had a couple of days to discover Seattle. As I said the location of the hotel is pretty good. It's not right downtown, but that could have it's benefits - no traffic noise, etc. It's located about 4 blocks from the Seattle Center, the Space Needle and that whole area. 4 blocks from the monorail station, 6 blocks from the heart of downtown, and about 9 blocks from Pike Place. We walked every where while here (except to and from the airport). We found Seattle to be compact. Our big complaints were irritating but tolerable and thank goodness didn't affect our trip. We left our room by 8:30 am on Sunday to begin our one big day of exploration. We returned to rest a little at about 3:00pm and our room was not cleaned! We just dealt with it as we did not want to leave again at that point. On Monday, it was the same story only we left about 9:30am and returned around 9:30 pm. Also, we asked for a 3:45 am wake-up call the next morning..., and it never came. Thankfully my husband set his phone alarm as a back-up. When we checked out I mentioned to the front desk that we never had any maid service and they just simply apologized.

Touring Seattle

We were pleasantly surprised. Arriving, the exterior did not look great, but the interior was nice. Our room was good size and clean. Beds were really comfortable. The view wasn’t the greatest, but you could catch a glimpse of the Needle if you peaked around the corner. Parking was free, but limited. The continental breakfast was great; good selection, everything remained stocked and it seemed there was always staff available. Overall, good experience.

Comfortable facility near the Seattle Space Needle

The La Quinta Inn and Suites is a welcoming, comfortable hotel, with nice lobby and rooms. Breakfast is included; the most pleasant part of it is making your own waffle using a waffle iron. The front desk personnel are very helpful and friendly. The computers in the lobby weren't working perfectly, and the neighborhood is a little seedy, but overall it was a pleasant place to spend a night before heading for the airport, especially since we planned to visit the Space Needle a few blocks away.

If you visit the Space Needle, splurge on the dinner in the revolving restaurant. Then enjoy the outdoor glass art by Chihuly for free - skip the indoor show and its cost. You can see some of what's inside through the window!

Good, not great

Pretty average place. My room was noisy but clean. The staff was very helpful but I wouldn't stay here again unless it was very close to where I was going to be spending the majority of my time. I picked this hotel because it was 3 blocks away from the building I was working out of for the week. Also, this is a pet friendly hotel and as a result, I heard some barking at night when I was trying to sleep. So, if you're a light sleeper this might not be the best place to stay.
