    WOULD stay again!

    I REALLY liked The Westin. I thought the location was GREAT as it was only a short walk to Pike's Market and a little bit of a longer walk to The Underground City Tour! There is a drugstore on the corner which is a nice way to save money. The room was a little small, but nothing too crazy considering the shape needed for the AWESOME view! The hotel bar had a great drink selection and the cafe was great for breakfast. VERY clean! I did not like the bed, but the dual shower head was GREAT! Overall, I would DEFINATELY stay here again!

    Good place

    I was happy with my choice to stay at the Westin. I chose the higher floor room so the view was great. The room was spacious and the housekeepers did a great job. The bed was comfortable. The hotel is busy and has a few amenities. The location is great and almost everything is a few blocks away. As an overall I have to say the hotel was great.

    great place!

    We chose this location because it was close to the attractions we wanted to see. This hotel was excellent. The only downside was hearing my neighbor run water (perhaps taking a shower) for a long time after we went to bed. We could also hear street traffic like sirens, even though we were on the 19th floor. But given these downsides, I would still stay there again.

    Stay was ok

    Room was a bit tired. View was good (high floor, water view). We had an exceptionally hot day which didn't work facing the water (underpowered aircon and too bright to have the drapes open)but I would imagine this is an unusual problem in Seattle There was a mini bar in room but no glasses or cork screw, had to call (and tip) for everything. Had a theif scare (turned out to be a misplaced item on our part), the hotel handled the situation very well. Bottom line, would probably stay at the Edgewater next time.
