    Great weekend getaway

    This hotel was great. The room was was nice and the bed was fantastic. If it would've fit in my bag, it would've come home with me. The bathroom was large and the shower, nicest I've seen in a hotel. The location in downtown was nice and within walking distance to shopping, eating and the famous Pike Place Market. I waked almost everywhere thanks to the central location. Down to the international district and stadiums all the way back to the market. Even through Post Alley and witnessed the gum wall. The staff was friendly and helpful and there was no problem holding my bags until check-in. I arrived before noon at the hotel, semi-checked in, left bags with bellhop and headed over to the Seahawks-Jets game. After the game was over, headed back and picked up my key to the room. 27th floor with a great view. The ony issue was parking. Over $40/night for hotel self parking and more for valet. There was parking in the building next to the hotel with sky bride access. I chose that option. It was $25 for 24 hour parking with in/out privilege. I suppose I am just used to not having to pay for parking. Overall, great experience. Would definitely stay again, for the bed alone.

    Instead of driving or cab, walk. There are so many neat things you discover when you walk downtown Seattle. The hills aren't that bad.

    Great location

    Great downtown location great view of city and space needle from our room on 29th floor north tower easy access to monorail about two block walk five blocks to market place. You need to see the market just for the experience even if you don't buy. Also the first Starbucks is there.

    There was a parking gargae next door that was half price from the hotel parking. The staff told us about it. And inside the hotel room where other discounts that we found at the end of our stay. (newspaper and extra points for not cleaning the room)

    Perfect location for sight seeing in Seattle. Close to monorail to science center and Pike Street Market. Staff friendly and helpful. Plenty of choices for eating places within walking distance to include fast food and restaurants. Provides discount for parking garage nearby.

    You have to eat at Cutters on the north end of the Pike Place Market. Best Gyro in town is Zaina Mediterranean restaurant on 108 Cherry Street (their original location).

    Great views!!!

    The Westin is centrally located. We were able to walk to the Space Needle, Pike's Market, Chinatown and Pioneer Square easily! Bathrooms were somewhat dated but you can't go wrong with the heavenly shower and beds! When checking in we signed up for their rewards program and were upgraded to a room with an awesome view of the Space Needle! Would highly recommend the hotel. Also, loved the proximity to the link light rail, so easy to get to and from the airport.

    Pioneer Square had a huge variety of restaurants and bars. Pike's Market area - all the restaurants expected you to have reservations. Not very practical for out of towners.

    The Westin was great!

    We were only there for one night before a cruise. The location was perfect. We rode there from the airport on the transit. We had to walk one block to hotel. Perfect spot for the Spaceneedle - just cross street for monorail. The hotel staff was friendly, room clean and very comfortable. Pike's market short, safe walk.

    Long weekend in Seattle

    Westin Seattle hotel, room 4333, had a view obstructed by the top of an office building's noisy exhaust fans which ran 24 hrs a day. Eventually, the sound became 'white noise', but was less than pretty to look at. To the left of this building was Puget Sound and there was a view of a river to the right of it. There was a good view of the Space Needle which was lit at night. There were lots of crowds when the cruise ships were in. There were lots of homeless people on every street as well as those 'emotionally disabled' who were random in their approaches and verbal attacks on passersby. The city could be a fabulous place to visit....very eclectic and interesting. Food is expensive in restaurants....best restaurant found was "Icon", waiter, Gumero, was exceptional! Body scans at the SEATAC airport. probably won't return. Westin charges for internet access in the rooms.
