Exploring Seattle

The hotel location is great. The hotel was located in the middle of down town Seattle, where all the shops, restaurants, market, and attractions are located. Room was clean, the service response was great. Called in for new towels and got the towels within 5min me hanging up the phone, and front desk even called for courtesy check, if everything was to my liking. The hotel also has a Restaurant located on the fifth floor, which was decent in price. All in all my experience at Motif was good.

Great stay

I booked this hotel for a conference down at the waterfront (several blocks away) and the location was great. Motif is right in downtown with restaurants and activities all around. Clean and quiet room, and all the staff were friendly. I'll be staying here again in the future.

Overnight stay

Check in/out was quick and friendly, and the room was very clean and nicely appointed. My only complaints were the pillows and the slow elevators. The main reason people go to hotels is to sleep, so the quality of the pillows is pretty important. The pillows provided were small and not very comfortable. In the morning we had to wait at least 10 minutes for the elevator because only one was running.

Great Location-Great Staff

I stayed at this hotel when it was the Red Lion a few years ago, I booked it again as I new it was a great location for the money and took less than 5 minutes to casually walk to Pike's Place Market. The new decor is up to date and modern, staff was nice. Downside is there was no hotel directory in the room. There were a handful of menus for what the hotel offered, but I was actually wanting to know how much the bathrobe and coffee mugs they had in the room were if I wanted purchase them. On the positive side: They accidentally charged my credit card for the room fee, even though I had already paid for it in full. After leaving a message and then calling again a day later, I received a call back from the hotel profusely apologizing and they had credited back the charge. Very happy with the way they quickly and professionally handled the situation.

Trapped in elevator

Hello. First off the hotel is amazing looking. I really liked the modern look and feel of it. When my friend and I arrived we park in the hotels garage. When we checked in I was told there was quite the fee to park in the garage. I told the staff member that I was unaware that there was a fee to park as I was not made aware of it when I booked my room or upon entering the garage. The staff member informed me he would knock off half the price of the parking which was very kind. When we went back to the garage to get our belongings, we entered into the elevator only to have it go up to the third floor of a federal area and then not go back down. We were in the elevator for quite some time and we able to call the front desk. They said they would send someone up and got the elevator to move. After this occured the front desk person said they would waive the parking fee for our trouble. Later the manager on duty called to the room and sent us complementary drinks which was very nice of them to do and shows that the hotel wants to make guests as happy as they can. However, when leaving the next day, my friend drove out of the garage and had to pay the full parking fee. I was told we were not going to have to pay for parking so I was a little bothered with this. I do appreciate the efforts of the staff with the elevator incident, but disappointed by the parking issue.
