Bad Experience

We were staying with another couple. The valet hit their car. There was mold in both the bathrooms. The only good thing about this hotel was the location. None of us will be staying here again.

The Hotel Was a Dissappointment

The rooms were small, they were hot, the shower drained poorly and one elevator was broken.

Great location if you have patience.

Word of caution, don't stay here if you are an impatient person. One elevator was broken (an employee told me it has been broken for 5 months). The housecleaning crew fight the guest for use since their supplies are in the basement it is always full of employees and they hold it for each other so guest can't take it. I guess they are just trying to get there job done and are as frustrated as the guests are. I waited 15-20 minutes many times waiting for one and that is going up or down. Especially at peak times with people checking in or out with luggage.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

I'm not one to typically take public transportation but the light rail to and from the airport is $2.50 and right across the street from the hotel. I highly recommend it to save some bucks.

Great location and a great getaway

Nice little walk to the market, Pacific place is right there , I really like the location. Even with an elevator down it wasn't that big of a deal.

Great location for the price

The room was small and the bathroom was the smallest I've ever had. The hotel was quiet though so no noise issues. However the location can't be beat as the hotel is downtown in the middle of several great shops and restaurants. The staff was very helpful even printing the bus schedule for me.

Pike's Market is about six blocks from the hotel. You'll want to go early as it is much busier in the afternoon.

Could hop out the door and find fun

I don't take much time off and even when I do, it is usually a working vacation. Such was the case here. I was thrilled to find a hotel so centrally located to all of the places I needed to access that was also affordable. Yes, the room was not spacious, but it was neat, clean and functional with a comfortable mattress (so very important). On the tenth floor I enjoyed a lovely view of the city and had no street noise. On the down side is that the elevator will try your patience but I would rather have a slow elevator in a hotel with character instead of a speedy one in a generic box. The front desk staff was courteous and efficient though somewhat indifferent. Overall, I sincerely enjoyed my stay at the Roosevelt. It afforded me what I value most when I stay in the city: the opportunity to wander out the front door of the hotel and find some adventures.

If you wander down Pine St. towards the Pike Place Market and turn left on First St., you can find a lovely little place called The Crumpet Shop. Even on Sunday morning when nothing else is open you can go in early and get a healthy, fresh breakfast served by smiling faces.

Mediocre

I don't mind small rooms and normally I don't mind downtown locations without parking. But a hotel that needs a facelift might be well advised to try not to 'nickel and dime' everything and everyone. Better hotels than this offer free wireless Internet or free bottled water, or a free visit to a nearby fitness center if they don't have one of their own. The money grubbing on top of an overpriced room makes the whole experience less than it might otherwise be.
