Chic, urban style in the heart of Seattle
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.
Highlights
  • Full-service restaurant on site
  • In-room spa services
  • Wireless Internet access (fees apply)
  • Pet-friendly (fees apply)
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.
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.
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.

Big Disappointment

Despite witty signage and bold decor, the W Hotel Seattle is cutting corners and it shows. The Great Room furnishings are starting to look worn, and the decor is visually incoherent. The limited restaurant menu needs a few blander choices for travelers whose stomachs are unsettled. With no in-room coffee, you have to dress and go down to the lobby for a complimentary cup--so you can't enjoy coffee while fixing your hair for the day. The restaurant staff were the rudest I've enountered in 35 years of business travel. And the building is a nightmare for wheelchair users. It was clean though.

Personal attention

The staff was outstanding! I was only there for one night and they always recognized me, asked specific questions related to why i was in own. Aways opened the door for me and were there for me whatever i needed. Will stay there again based on that alone.

Nice Business Hotel

For a business-related meeting in Seattle, this hotel worked well for me. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff was very accomodating in room service delivery and making recommendations and reservations for a delicious restaurant nearby - Acqua.

hip, upscale hotel

Had a great experuence, staff were friendly, efficient, helpful, the hotel is nice, rooms clean, etc. the only (minor) glitch was lack of attention to detail in housekeeping (didn't replace bath products at all w/o having to be asked - cost cutting?). Otherwise, a first rate experience.

Edgy and Dark

This is a first class hotel which is quite near the Columbia Center. Easy walking. The staff was very helpful and valet parking attendants were quick and gave good directions. My only complaint is that, in an effort to be very cool and edgy, the lighting is very subdued...too dark to read a newspaper in the lobby!

Time-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

When coming from SeaTac, take the Seneca offramp and go straight to the hotel garage. Very convenient.

Good Business Amenities

The rooms were nice, great beds. The hotel was close to Downtown rest., shopping, and the waterfront. Also, relatively close to the interstate. The only drawback was that the nightime noise was relatively loud with bus traffic and people out on the street partying late Friday & Sat. night.

Business Trip

Thomas and his staff was awesome. Very accomodating. Made sure we felt welcomed and comfortable while we waited for our room; eventhough we arrived early. Couldn't ask for anything more. His exceptional service transcended the day of check in. Ate dinner at the hotel a few nights before. Was in a jam and needed help printing Seahawks tickets. Thomas helped us out!

Outstanding.

Not much to say when you roll into the perfect ambience ... The W Seattle is wonderfully decorated with a bi-level entrance that has its own cool restaurant/bar, Trace. This is, my friends, The Spot.
