My room was fine. But for the price, I certainly wouldn't book again. My room had a stale carpet smell. My shower was a bathtub with a dingy shower curtain. The ac was subpar. The tv allowed for a small select channels. Couldn't even find local news or CNN. Total for my room 1 night including taxes, resort fees and parking over $500. I did like the sauna, pool and workout space.

Fridge in room didn’t work. Brought a huge fridge to replace it. Silly response No front desk response to call- on hold for minutes

I liked the location and that most places I wanted to visit were walkable. The room was very clean and the jacuzzi/pool was nice! The staff were very nice and approachable. The only downside was in our room the tub was small but the water pressure was awesome!

Understaffed so a few glitches but overall excellent property.

Beautiful and historic; wonderful bar in lobby

Beautiful historic hotel with updates rooms. Great location and friendly staff.

Great location friendly staff who couldn't do enough for you. the hotel is beautiful. I would highly recommend staying here.

Great hotel! Clean and stag was hospitable!! Indoor pool was great!

I am not sure if this was a common practice but the rooms were not cleaned on a daily basis which makes me sad!

The hotel denied I had a reservation for check in on 27th June. There were no staff working. I had to wait until 2am to get the room that they WOULD admit I had booked and paid for. At the hotel parking lot my car was broken into. an absolute disaster from beginning to end

Staff friendly and room spacious

I didn’t stay there because it was overbooked and I didn’t have a room despite my reservation.

Nice stay

The building is fantastic. The staff is very well trained and the food was great. The parking price is very steep, but that seems typical for seattle.
