    Great downtown location!

    Fabulous location. a couple of blocks from Pike Place Market, right by shopping (macys, nordstroms) and great city and space needle views from the rooms! I had an afternoon to walk around, and there was a lot to walk to.

    Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

    Pike's Place Market is a 10 minute walk. From there you can walk to Pioneer Square, another 10/15 away. The Westin is right in the center of town.

    Great downtown hotel

    I stayed at the Westin to attend Seattle Opera's Ring cycle in August. The lobby bar was a busy scene after the performances. It has a perfect location, with Pike Place Market and many restaurants only a short walk away. It was ideal for my daily run, with a map helpfully provided by the concierge. Book a high floor for the fantastic views of city and coastline.

    We did Christmas shopping within a few blocks of the hotel, walked to Pike Place and museums, and it was a shot cab ride to the airport. Location couldnt be better.

    Unsatisfied Customer

    had noisy neighbors and hotel was not effective in getting them to quite down. Started at 10:00 p.m. and continued to 5:00 a.m. even after 3 calls to the front desk. Asked for phone to be placed on DND as every half-hour our room phone would ring one time and then stop (think neighbors were retaliating for calling security) and ended up having to unplug the phones to get the calls to stop. TV resolution was incorrect - HD tv with everyone short and fat. Staff at the hotel were not able to correct the view/resolution settings. Had to pay $10.00 a day for internet.

    Nice hotel and friendlly, helpful staff

    Enjoyed the stay and did a lot of sightseeing. The hotel is in a great location. The only thing that was disappointing was that the rooms are misrepresented on the hotel website -- the hotel is advertised as having floor to ceiling windows, which wasn't the case. Also, it was quite small.

    Great location - clean - spacious

    Great location - clean, availble restuarants on site. Decent gym and indoor pool. Circular design - so avoid the side where the elevators are at if you are sensitive to noise.
