The W Seattle towers above the city, its lighted steel pyramid top integrated into Seattle's skyline. The contemporary hotel has 415 rooms and nine suites, all filled with amenities to suit lifestyle-minded travelers. The W Seattle has a full-service restaurant, and Seattle Weekly magazine named W Bar the best hotel bar in the city. The downtown hotel is within walking distance of city sights, dining and shopping. The W Seattle's concierge service, Wherever Whenever, helps guests plan the ideal Emerald City vacation.
Dining
The W Seattle's full-service restaurant, Earth and Ocean, serves inventive takes on Pacific Northwest ingredients. It is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. W Bar, outfitted with sumptuous velvet drapes and dark woods, serves signature cocktails, such as the Emerald Drop, and light fare as a DJ spins tunes.
Rooms
Even the simplest of rooms at the W Seattle offers guests an array of amenities. W signature beds, with pillow-top mattresses, sport 350-thread-count cotton-blend linens, down pillows and a goose-down duvet. Guests can request hypoallergenic pillows from a menu of pillows. Bliss Spa toiletries, two terrycloth-lined robes and a hair-dryer grace bathrooms. In-room entertainment is plentiful as well, with a CD/DVD library, iPod deck and 32-inch plasma-screen TV.
Property features
The W Seattle promises a chic, urban refuge in downtown Seattle and delivers with amenities, decor and services. The hotel's design is sleek and spare, with muted earth tones and judicious touches of metal. In the lobby, which the W calls the Living Room, guests bask in front of a fireplace, lounge on velvet-covered furniture and check e-mail using complimentary wireless Internet access. Guests can work out with a personal trainer in the Sweat fitness center, then relax with an in-room spa treatment afterwards.

Great view of parking garage

I had upgraded the room to a corner room. The room had lots of windows that looked into a parking garage that was right next door. We have stayed there before without upgrading the room, and had a great room. We asked to be moved, but they did they only had twin beds available.

A Disappointment

My wife and I had been on the road for two weeks and had reserved the W for two nights at the end of the trip. We wanted to visit the Chihuly exhibition. Our first disappointment was driving up and seeing the overnight parking was $61.00. We then had trouble at check in as our room wasn't ready. The staff seemed a little distracted. Finally a room was found. WiFi was not included. Could be had for a fee. We negotiated that and signed up for a rewards program to get free wifi. Our room was comfortable, well appointed and clean. It was on the 4th street side. 5th floor and traffic noise could be heard. All in all I have to say that for the room charge, parking fee, potentially a wifi fee, we found that the W is not any value at all.

Staff was promptly available, willing to provide area insight, and provide the little things like an umbrella for the unexpected monsoon walk to the Park Market.

Given the price of the rooms, was very surprised rooms did not include internet, was surprised coffee was not included in rooms, however provided downstairs. With that, surprised morning breads were not provided.

One night stay

While our stay was short (a single night) the room was comfortable and very nicely appointed. During check in the front desk informed us that we were being "upgraded" to a corner room. Sounded great, but the views were of an adjacent parking structure and surrounding roof top..... not exactly "upgraded" in my opinion. Downtown location was close to Pikes Market and offered the walking closeness we desired. Terrific restaurants close by made the evening an enjoyable one.
