Reserve Your Rooms Here People!!!!!!!!

The staff was very professional & courtious, and check-in was a breeze. Their room key card security to elevators should be a standard for all hotels.(this is for your protection people) The lobby was very plush with a great view, comfortable seating,internet service,phones,free coffee,& it's own entrance to Von's Resturaunt.(You have to eat there at least once)You may not want to go anywhere else) The rooms were very clean & accomidating & well maintained. Easy access to Monorail for the Space Needle(get the all day pass only $59 a person- well worth it),Shopping & other food just steps away. I Will book there again when in seattle!!!! Keep up the good work guys.

In the middle of everything!

My mother, sisters, and I stayed here for a night while attending a women's convention at the Benaroya Hall. The Roosevelt is within easy thing that put a damper on the trip was our walking distance (several blocks) and we loved all of the shopping, dining, and being right in the middle of the heart of the city! [...]. I would definitely stay here again, I loved the convenience and cleanliness! Also, they have a great security system in the elevators which requires a room key to activate the controls, which is wonderful for peace of mind. The breakfast buffet at Von's was very good and well worth the $9.95.

Close and convenient

Attended conference at the Washington Convention Center, hotel was on next block and very convenient. Room was small but for one person it was comfortable. The hotel does not offer free wireless internet service in the rooms but this would make it more attractive to business travelers on a budget.

Good for the Price

I went to Seattle to attend a conference. It was very close to the Convention Center! The maid service was good, although the curtains were very dusty. I enquired about getting a mini-fridge in my room, but nobody could give me a daily price on this, so I decided to go without one. My room was on the top floor and there were deep cracks in some of the walls.

Great bargain in the heart of Seattle

We came for a 2 day exploration of Seattle. Our stay here was perfect for walking/shopping at major stores then to the monorail terminal to get to Seattle Center. Great restaurants just a block away (for cheesecake and then breakfast the next day). Decent walking distance to Pike Place Market and the wonderful waterfront. The only possible thing that would have improved our stay would have been a price break in the parking garage. However, altogether, staying at the Roosevelt was delightful!

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

Discovered the CityPass online--a terrific bargain for "tourists". We got more than our money's worth using that for most of the attractions listed (Space Needle--twice, Science Museum, Aquarium, and several more).

Good Value for the price, great location

Plus: This is a historic hotel right in the downtown area. It's perfect for travelers that want a great location on a smaller scale budget. The hotel was very clean, the beds were VERY comfortable. The staff was attentive, helpful and friendly. Downside, no continental breakfast, a few blocks walk if you take the train from the airport, there's only 2 elevators and they're really small.
