Amazing Stay

This is a great hotel. The staff was very friendly, the rooms were very comfortable, and the location is perfect for getting the most out of your stay in Seattle. I stayed at the Westin down the street a few times and Motif runs circles around them. I've found my new favorite place to stay in Seattle!

Convenient for a mother-daughter getaway

Great location two blocks from Westake Light Rail station...an easy walk to everything. My daughter visited with her car and self-parking beneath the hotel was reasonable and much easier than dealing with a valet each time. Room was comfortable..everything you'd expect.

Great location, great stay.

This hotel is located within easy walking distance from Pike Place, the monorail, convention center and cultural activities. We parked the car (a stiff 32.50/day) and never needed it until we checked out. They allowed us to keep the car's in and out parking flexibility until 4; the day we left. Staff was great and would stay here again anytime.

Getaway

Good location. Centrally located in downtown Seattle walking distance to Pike Market Place about 5 blocks as well as the waterfront. Public transportation is easily accessible on Pine St and 5th St in the Nordstrom building entrance where you can take the Link Light Rail directly to SeaTac Airport or the Monorail from Westlake to the Space needle for only $2.25 per person.

Nightlife tip: Not Applicable

Be cautious walking at night between 1st and 3rd St. since there are a lot of homeless and indigent people peddling, smoking drugs and the roaming streets. During the day, I felt more secure exploring the city since there's a lot of tourists walking about. Definitely a foodie town!

amazing location

This place has such a friendly and accommodating staff. The rooms are lovely and the decor is vibrant. The location is probably the best you can possibly find in Seattle, you are literally just steps from any attraction you are seeking. Walking distance to pretty much everything. The one thing that is missing is a pool, but overall this place gets a 99% out of 100 in my book!

We arrived late at night and were upgraded to the Presidential Suite. The room was perfection. Great views, great amenities, excellent guest services and you can't beat the location just a few blocks away from the Market! Highly recommend for your next trip to Seattle.

If you happen to get in late, Zig Zag Cafe located near Pike Place Market is a great spot for a late night meal (they are open until 2 am!) and a drink. Very cozy, romantic spot.
