    Unique hotel

    This is a uniquely-shaped hotel, that is a tourist attraction in itself. The staff is friendly, the views are fantastic, and the location is great because you are close to all the Seattle attractions.

    Very pleasant stay

    We ended up at the Westin by default, wasn't my first choice but they had availability and a good price so I booked the rooms and was very glad I did. Staff was very friendly, rooms were clean, modern, had nice views, and the hotel is in a good downtown location. Short walks to Pikes and Seattle Center, also just 1-3 blocks from four different Tom Douglas restaurants. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

    Heavenly beds

    The staff is friendly, unpretentious, comfortable, sincere, caring, informative; the room is PERFECT - comfortable, inviting, clean, great view; elevators are speedy. Our experience - late check-out at noon on weekends - was exceptional, and we're looking forward to staying here again. Convenient to Monorail for Chihuly Gardens and Space Needle, Westlake Center, Pike's Market, Big Wheel. Our visit was about 26 hours and it seemed like three days because of location, ambiance, kindness and smiles everywhere we went. On a scale of 5, we rate The Westin a 10.

    Perfect location, nice rooms

    The Westin is in a perfect location within walking distance to everything, including Pike's market and shopping. Rooms were pretty nice as well as hotel installations. My only complaint is that the bed, although featured as a luxury bed, was too soft and didn't have enough support for my back (and my husband's).

    Great location!!

    Great location for shopping downtown and going to the market! Just wish the beds were queen size instead of double with two beds in a room.

    Great downtown location

    We stayed at the Westin because it was the only hotel near a light rail station with a pool. We were not disappointed with our choice. The hotel is within walking distance of most Seattle attractions and tons of great restaurants. Pike Place Market is a 5 minute walk, South Lake Union is within a 10 minute walk, and the Space Needle is within a 40 minute walk. The light rail (Link) and a street car are all within one block as well.

    Not what was expected

    The room was generally clean and had a nice view. However, at over $300, you'd expect a room with a clean ironing board (the one in my room had a large oily stain on it#, a working alarm clock #the one in my room did not), and some form of map describing where amenities are located. The threatening note on the mini-bar cabinet was also disconcerting...If you dare put a personal item in the fridge you will be charged. If you move anything in the cabinet, you will be charged...etc. Anyway, I was traveling on business and these details didn't exactly make the trip any more relaxing or efficient. I'd look elsewhere.
