Considering the price, location and the services, this is the best you can get. The only thing is that the AC was broken for a day or two, luckily it's not very hot in Seattle. Because of this, the guy of the front desk send me a free drink. :P
Staff was very friendly, they stowed my bags without a problem the day I checked out because I was not actually leaving the city until the evening so I was able comfortably roam the sight see without lugging my luggage. Very good location, 10
minute walk or less to major attractions, shopping, restaurants and transportation.
Seattle's longest continuously running hotel is a classic
I love staying at The Mayflower Park Hotel. It opened in 1927 as the Bergonian Hotel, and was recently declared a historic landmark, ensuring it will live on. Located in the heart of the city, it's classic and comfortable. Owned by the same family
for 40 years, the staff is genuinely friendly and helpful. On site are the Mediterranean inspired Andaluca for breakfast and dinner and Oliver's -- my favorite bar in the city (and makers of the best martinis). And not a hipster in sight!
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
Two of Seattle's most popular attractions, the Space Needle and Pike Place Market, are just a short walk from the hotel. Take the Seattle Monorail to Seattle Center to visit the Space Needle, Pacific Science Center, Experience Music Project (EMP) and Chihuly Garden & Glass. Seattle Center is also the venue for Seattle Repertory Theatre, Intiman Theatre, Pacific Northwest Ballet and the Seattle Opera. A few blocks west of the hotel toward Elliott Bay is the Pike Place Market, for shopping, dining and extreme people watching.
The Mayflower Park is a "historic" hotel in Seattle. So one should expect the atmosphere to be consistent with the designation.
It is well-situated just on the edge of the shopping area. It is also just a short 4 blocks away from Pike Market. The
mono-rail station to the Space Needle and the Science Museum is just around the block.
The décor, as expected, is traditional. The rooms are on the small side especially the bathroom. Otherwise, they are clean and furnished as expected. The walls, as we come to discover, are rather thin; you will hear your neighbor if they were loud.
The staff is very nice. The reception desk, the doormen, the concierge are all super friendly and helpful. Be sure to say hi to Steve and Rae, the superb staff in the bar.
We got our rooms at pretty good discount so, for this trip with the family, it was pretty good value.
I had a short stay at the Mayflower Park Hotel for a business trip. It was the first time that I had stayed at the hotel, and I was unfamiliar with it. It turned out to be an excellent experience. It is located centrally in downtown - a most
convenient two short blocks from the Westlake light rail station - forty minutes from the airport stop to the hotel for $2.75.
Location doesn't get any better than this. Everything was in walking distance. Hotel staff was very friendly. Room was cleaned every day and products re-stocked. Would definitely stay again next time we're in Seattle.
Very happy I stayed there! Room a bit small, but pretty normal for downtown type hotel. Staff was great, from front desk to housekeeping to maintenance (room safe battery needed replacement). Oliver's has great hot wings, very nice happy hour
treats and very friendly and efficient staff. Convenient walk to most downtown points of interest and right across the street from the lite rail--easy and inexpensive trip to and from airport. Only negative was construction that was going on next door--if you were trying to sleep late (I was not), you'd be disappointed. But that wasn't the hotel's fault and is, presumably, temporary. I will definitely consider staying again when I'm back in Seattle.
