Recent guest reviews

One improvement is to have better food options for mid day comers who have been traveling all day and are in need of rest and food, not told to walk down the street for food.

I've been staying here for multiple years. This was a great trip. Thank you and the staff for being so amazing and accommodating.

Market and parking is severely overpriced! Besides that, nice hotel.

Great staff and convenient location. Very comfortable beds.

A short stay, but we had a good stay. The room itself seemed a little dated, but it was very clean and comfortable. We also had a nice view of Lake Union. The service was friendly and efficient. Would definitely recommend to others. Thanks!

Very friendly staff. Average room. Not enough blankets - had to turn up the heat. Everything really clean.

The hotel was nicely located. Not right in the heart of downtown but with the lake across the street made for nice walks and some shopping and restaurants were very close by. Did walk to the Space Needle and wasn't far at all. Nice full size grocery store was only a few blocks away too.The hotel staff was very accommodating and very nice, helpful and respectful. Especially the head bartender, can't remember his name but he was great. Very friendly, made you feel welcome, remembered your drink, gave tips about where to go and how to get around town. A++ for him. the room was average. But for me I have a few things I prefer to have. One is a full size mirror, even better with a light over it. As it makes for putting on make up etc. much easier. Which this room did have. I like having a place to sit besides a bed. Room had a chair with ottoman. Plus all the other amenities, refrigerator, ironing board, iron, etc. Very pleased with the hotel would definitely recommend.

The hotel is great. Happy and friendly staff very helpful. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and overall was a great stay.

I've stayed in many different locations in and around Seattle and really like the Lake Union area. The hotel was in a good location if you wanted to walk to different restaurants. Service and Food was great if you just want to eat in the room.

Hotel is in a good location very central to downtown. We walked to the Gas Park which is about 1.5 miles away and easy to find as it is adjacent to the lake we drove to Pike's place mall which was also near by, but it was getting late so we didn't want to walk. Overall, great hotel. Hard to complain.

We booked this hotel because of the location and the lake view but we were placed on the side of the hotel facing an abandon building. We were dissatisfied and very disappointed!!!!

Good hotel for the right price. Friendly staff and close to space needle.

wonderful hotel location, close to the space needle, clean, very nice staff. Overall very happy

It has been a long time since I visited Seattle with my family, and staying at Courtyard-Marriott provided us with a cozy and comfortable place to make us have even more greater memories of Seattle.

very good hotel, easy for driving, and close to food, and site seening

Great experience and central location. We were competing at an event at SPU and this hotel offered us a central location and had some good restaurants within walking distance.

Stayed 3 days to see Seattle .Great location and hotel was very pleasant.

My wife and I a great stay. In the New Year we will be back down to stay again. The staff was very helpful and friendly.

This hotel is over a mile from Seattle Center and about 2.5 miles from King Station. There is A LOT of construction going on all around the hotel... even a lot of walking detours. Those things being said, the beds were incredibly comfy and the rooms were clean.

t get ready for our wedding was perfect as we had it across the street on an Argosy cruise on the Celebrations vessel. I chose this mainly for ease of getting to the boat for the ladies as well as the gents, & it worked perfectly thank you SO much Courtyard Marriott !
