    Loved Seattle!

    We had a great experience at the Westin. We loved the central location to most everything. The Westin was very busy with other conferences. However, none of that impacted our stay. The staff was always friendly, helpful and attentive. I've stayed at Westin's in other locations and have experienced a consistent level of service, amenities and comfort that is worth the money. Westin's make traveling easy and enjoyable! Thank you for caring!

    Good Hotel, but not Great

    This hotel was clean and friendly. It wasn't particularly cheap. The room was adequate. The beds are always the best.

    Just average

    My husband and I went for a long weekend. We usually stay at Marriotts but thought we'd try a Westin for a change. Unbelievably, we were put in a room with 2 double (not queen, just good old fashioned double) beds. I can't remember the last time I stayed in a hotel with such small double beds. The beds had a light down filled comforter and a really heavy top comforter. The light one was not enough at night, but the heavy one was way too much. We didn't sleep well at all. The new Relish restaurant was average at best. I ordered a salmon salad and the salmon was almost raw--it had to be sent back to be cooked more. It didn't come back to me until my husband was nearly done with his meal. The workout room was quite nice and the location of the hotel was nice. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

    Wonderful getaway

    The Westin is consistent in all the best ways -- comfortable beds that guarantee a wonderful night's sleep, a comfortable and spacious room, and showers like warm rainfall. Remodeled rooms are more functional. Views from every direction. Close to many of Seattle's best -- Jazz Alley, Monorail, shopping, Tom Douglas eats (steak at the Dahlia Lounge, drinks at Palace Kitchen, breakfast at Lola) all in short walking distance. Stay there at least once a year for a fun night on the town. Highly recommend it.

    Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

    Bathtub Gin for cocktails. Delightful. Off an alley. Ask for directions or you'll walk right by (in the tradition of a real Speakeasy.)

    We enjoyed the stay and would go back. Very close to all downtown interests. A good pick and the view was fantastic.

    I think Westin is very nice. It has a good location. But it has a small problem, a little noise.

    Okay family experience.

    Room didn't have dresser's to put our clothes in for my weeks stay. Room was a little to small. Breakfast buffet was a little pricey. Hotel was ideally situated and the exercise facilities were great. Parking was a hassle with the outside vendor. Overall the experience was okay being 3000 miles from home.

    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.

    Money-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

    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.
