Great Vacation

The hotel is very nicely located in downtown on a busy street in the middle of many stores. It is relatively in a good area, comparing to what is going on a few blocks west of the hotel. The hotel itself has parking but no valley survive. The staff was friendly and willing to help answer any questions we had. The hotel also has a very nice restaurant/bar/lounge area called Frolik. The rooms were very clean with white sheets.

Trying to be something it's not

Check-in was a disaster. The gal trying to help us was clueless. She couldn't locate my name in the system because she wasn't paying attention to the spelling. Once she found my name, she told us we would have to wait a while for our room. We arrived at 4:00(Check-in time). After seeing the displeasure on our faces, a room magically popped up on her screen. Don't tell us we will have to wait if you have no clue...it just looks bad. When we tried to leave the property, the parking garage held us hostage. We swiped our key to leave, and it said we had to talk to the parking manager. This is a underground facility, so you can only imagine the difficulty in trying to maneuver your way out of other peoples way. What a nightmare! We had to go talk to the bell boy(since everyone else had guests to help), who was actually very helpful and apologetic. He helped us leave, however paying $40 for one night of parking should have at least made the process easier. We will not return.

Mother/Daughter getaway

We really enjoyed staying at this hotel. The room was large, we had two big beds and it was quiet and comfortable-which is really important to me. The location is perfect-right in the heart of the fun/cool part of the city. You can walk to shopping, restaurants, the art museum and Pike's market place.

Good place to stay.

It is well located. Near the main stores and the bay attractions. It is only a shor walk to Pike market. The rooms are clean and smell as new. The shower was to modern for our taste.

Awesome Hotel in Seattle

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Motif Hotel. The staff were friendly. The room was clean. Had a great view. Location was perfect. The restaurant hotel was very nice and stylish. Had breakfast, which was very delicious. I also was very pleased that the hotel had a computer and printing section for their guest. Two thumbs up.
