everything is fine except the sound proofing

The room is clean and the bed is comfortable. Yet the soundproofing needs to be improved. When im close to the wall, i can hear the guy in the beside room is making the phone. Also when someone is showering, there is pumper sound i guess? A little bit annoying. But those sounds not happen all the time. Sometimes the refridgerator in the room makes noise and you need to ask them to take off the plug. Then you can have a good night~ But overall, i think the hotel is good.

Not the glitz I expected

I had stayed at the hotel when it was by a previous name and enjoyed it. I figured with a new name and the price being over twice as much, it would be wonderful, wrong! The gentleman checking me it was great, but it was down hill from there. The elevators are small so there is a long wait because guests also have to share them with the people who are going to the bar/club on the 5th floor. The room and bathroom were small. The grout on the floor and bathtub were dirty. The tiles in the bathtub were chips and looked about to fall off. I did enjoy the selection of channels on the tv. The bed to me was hard and so were the pillows so I didn't sleep well. There is a desk, but no table and chairs so even though they have take out menus in the room there is no place to eat. I did go up to Frol!k on the 5th floor to see what all the hype was for lunch. The outside terrace and food was amazing. Over all the whole staff from check-in, restaurant, and bell desk was fantastic! For the price I probably wouldn't stay there again.

Not impressed

The location was great, room was okay. There was some sort of fan/machine running all night behind our room and it kept us awake most of the night. The staff was unfortunately not knowledgeable at all regarding the restaurant in the hotel or the surrounding area, which was not very professional. Also, the elevator did not feel stable/secure, kinda scary.

First time Seattle visitors

Staff very help, switch he'd our room to one with beautiful bay view. Hotel within walking distance of Pike Street Market, Pioneer Square, aquarium. Bartender gave us a great tip. Walk to Columbia Building and view city from 76th floor. Much cheaper than the needle and twice as high. Enjoyed our stay. If you have a car, visit Ballard Locks.

Water problems

- The hotel itself was mediocre: old building; OK service, good location. - The biggest problem was the water supply: All showers/faucets/toilets would cease to function for hours in the mornings. Both cold and hot water were affected. - The room's AC only worked intermittently.

Location, location, location!

My friend and I spent 2 nights in Seattle and needed a place that was close to all of the things we wanted to do as we didn't have a car. We were able to book Motif for a decent (for Seattle) price, and my goodness, we are glad we did! It was close to EVERYTHING!! No car, or even mass transit, was required! The hotel was pretty great, too. Friendly staff, large, clean rooms, good amenities. Overall, an excellent place to stay.

Pike Place is literally 5 minutes away. Shopping, dining, and general people watching are footsteps from the hotel. Leave the car and take it all in!
