Great Family Reunion Retreat

We had a Family Reunion there. We made our own plans for entertainment. The Cafe etc. closed to early and if you did not like to walk you were out of luck. Overall it rank up there as far as activities,and informed staff.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

The Duck tour was the highlight I suggested to several family members and they loved it. Also the Winery Tours inexpensive and knowledgeble. Take the Airporter bus from the Airport at gate 00 . It is the least expensive way to get to the Hotels as oppose to the Taxi. $11.00 compared to $35.00

Reasonable

Overall, it was a pleasurable stay. The location is great, pretty close to the water front. Great big room (corner room) and friendly staff.

Beautiful getaway in Seattle

The harbor cruise gives you a great chance to see the entire Seattle from the water. Also, the space needle view was awesome, the food was fabulous as well.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

It's a short walk down to the pier and shopping, however, the walk includes a steep climb back up to the hotel approx. 5 blocks. It's like climbing the streets of San Francisco without a cable car.

Money better spent elswhere.

Overall, this hotel was only mediocre. The location was excellent (downtown), but for a four star hotel we expected more. The rooms are nice, but lack a microwave and have no bathtub. Water from the shower flooded the bathroom if towels weren't set out. The pool is located right across from the lounge; anybody having a drink can see you walking in and out of the pool area in your swimwear. I recomend NOT paying the $11 fee for the use of their internet, when you can walk one block down the street to the library and use internet for free. If you have a special promotion, make sure to clerify it with the hotel at the beginning AND the end of your stay. They had tried to charge us extra for parking which was supposed to be included in the package we had chosen upon booking. Not horrible, but not worth paying more than $100/night.

We reccomend visiting the Seattle Zoo. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes and have at least a few hours to spare if you want to see a good portion of it.

Poor customer service but made right

Prepaid for room upgrade and called hotel by 5 PM on day of the trip. Reminded them I'd be in at 2 AM and to hold my room. Was told it would be held. We arrived 2 AM, tired from traveling all day. I was told my room wasn't available because I had arrived too late. I requested to speak with the manager, received no satisfaction and they stuck us in a small noisy, dingy room for the night. The next morning I once again requested to see a the General Manger, was told he wouldn't be in until Monday. I requested a call on Monday and expressed my dissatisfaction with the room and my treatment. The day manager was more helpful, transferred us to a better room, gave us meal vouchers and arranged return airport transportation. I'm still upset at the treatment we received and doubt I'll stay at this or any Renaissance again.

Seattle Trip

The trip was everything we expected and more. There were no glitches with any of the arrangements made by Orbitz. The hotel, for the price, was fine. The room was small and the cost of parking was a bit on the high side. It's located on the corner of Madison and 6th Ave. The next time we're in Seattle, we will not stay on any street higher than 3 Ave. This is because of the hills you have to navigate while walking. Anything higher than 3rd Ave. will burn out the average visitor. Walking is a must with the limited parking in the city.

Love in Seattle

We travelled to Seattle for a friend's wedding. The hotel was beautiful, very clean, and once in the room you couldn't hear anything. The woman who cleaned the room as like clockwork and did an amazing job.

Three perfect days in sunny Seattle!

I had a great time and thought the property was excellent, except for the freeway. Soundproof windows certainly help. And in spite of the noise, the room faced east which provided spectacular sunrises! The location is so convenient to downtown Seattle, and is within easy walking distance of everything. Staff and property were terrific!
