Great stay for business trips!

From the moment I checked in to the Motif in Seattle I felt very at ease. The hotel staff is incredibly courteous and check in was a breeze. The hotel itself is very modern and clean, and has a cool vibe that doesn't feel like they are trying too hard. The restaurant/lounge Frolic was also very comfortable. I would definitely stay here again - I almost didn't want to leave!

Amazing Trip

My girlfriend and I were in Seattle for the NFC Championship game and stayed there 5 nights! The staff was very friendly and helped us with any question we had and every morning would even suggest nearby restaurants. The hotel is close to everything we only had a car for two days which was more than enough. Everything is a walkable distance and the things that aren't the light rail and the monorail and close by. The only thing that wasn't great was the water pressure in the shower! Other than that a great central location hotel!

Conveniently located

The hotel's location can't be beat as it is within walking distance to Pike Place and all of the downtown attractions. Staff is friendly and courteous.

Family trip

Two queen beds are plenty for a family of four. Great location in downtown. The parking was about $38 and includes in/out privileges. Wasn't too happy with the fact that there was no towel rack or hanger in the bathroom. We ended up hanging the towels on the curtain rod (not ideal when trying to keep infant/toddler stuff clean). Hope management will include that common furnishing for their next year's budget.

Disappointed

First even though we were guests of the hotel, we had to pay an additional $32.00 a night for parking. Never have I ever had to pay for parking. The bed was comfortable and the service staff was very helpful. Night desk clerk the first night didn't inform us about the parking and didn't connect our card to our ticket and acted like we were an inconvenience. We had an appointment on saturday morning early and the hair dryer we were given didn't work and I had to call a couple of times to get one and then I was questioned about my intentions. There was only one mirror which is in the bathroom and hard to use for someone with glasses because it was so far away from the sink. Usually hotels have another mirror outside in the room. Had to go to one floor for ice and another for vending machines and twice there was no ice and had to go to several different floors. It seemed to be one think after another. The only good things were the food and service from Frolik was really really good, the bed was comfortable and the cider in the lobby was delicious. was it worth the money ? NO

Downtown

Good location in downtown and close to shopping and close to most of the tourist attractions and convention center.(shopping and convention center) Parking is higher priced than the going rate in the area. Probably should be rated a 3.5 not a 4 star. This hotel is the OLD Red Lion hotel location.

Quickie In Seattle

First time here and we stayed one night, but we were treated like permanent residents. Phenomenal rooms and amenities. Great local for bars/entertainment. My future go-to when stopping in Seattle.
