Regrettably poor conditions, needs major renovations & upgrades.

dirty place with peeling paint...smell of old unwashed things is the worst...Can't assign ANY stars to it...we travel for 3 weeks thru western Canada and US... this was by far the worst hotel...exorbitant cost..very bad hotel experience

We enjoyed our stay at the hotel. It was close to the action and the staff was helpful. The hotel is older and there is no elevator, so they gave us a room on the first floor. The hotel could use some attention as it is older and things don't always get fixed quickly.

I am guessing that this hotel used to be apartments that were converted to hotel rooms. They had some 50s charm to them. The exterior and the walk way were lovely, though the plants felt they could use a bit more water. There were crickets aplenty. The rooms were charming in that they evoked an era before universal home ownership had entered the American Dream. These felt like apartments that were lived in by people who worked hard and had stories to tell. Unfortunately, the plumbing, the linoleum, the cracked window, and slap dash paint jobs felt like they hadn't been updated since the 50s. But for the price, for the location, it was reasonable. I don't know if I would stay again. It was an experience, that much was certain. The parking was very tight, but reasonably priced and not terribly far away. There was no evelvator.

When we arrived in seattle it was raining we checked in then did tourist stuff. When we came back to the hotel found out no heaters in the room and we were cold. The rooms were outdated a little which we didn't mind except for the paint peeling off the ceiling. With the amount of money they charge they could at least update the rooms a section at a time

Convenient location across the street from Seattle Center and restaurants. If I went to a show at the Key Arena, I'd definitely stay here. The negative: Bathroom window was blocked and no scent.

The hotel is an OK place to stay. Great location, good staff, free use of computer and printer, and the room had a refrigerator, microwave, sink, and a window-shop air conditioner. The bed and pillows were very hard, and I'm not usually picky about that stuff. All of the staff that I dealt with were nice. For the right price, I'd stay here again.

Stayed at the hotel to attend a concert at the Key Arena. It was a great distance away with it only being a block away and the Space Needle being close also. There's plenty of spots to get a quick bite to eat. You can also go to Safeway if you want to cook something since most rooms are equipped with a small kitchenette.

After check in, the first thing you notice in the stairwell is the odor. It is clean, but a bit dank. The room, itself is old. It uses an old style steam heater. While it can get pretty cold outside, the inside room environment was comfortable. The kitchen includes a refrigerator, a microwave oven, and electric stove tops. Everything works pretty well. The one difficulty I had was with the shower. It was not easy to get warm water. The cold water would stop whenever you use the hot water. And vice- versa. The apartment is within walking distance of some attractions. Seattle Center, and the Space Needle are within view. Overall, it is a good place to stay

Wonderful view of Space Needle, friendly staff, would stay again.

It was nice that the hotel staff let me checking in early. However, I saw a man in the room after I opened the door. I found that he was just one of the engineers and ended up getting another room.

Nice little old fashioned place that needs an update.

The best thing about this hotel is that it is within walking distance of many local attractions. The staff is a close second. The first room that we were assigned had no working shower, was very noisy, and we were unable to adjust the room temperature sufficiently so it felt warm and stuffy. The second room was better. The morning after we arrive we were able to pay for one of the quite limited number of parking spots but we were not able to actually access the spot until mid afternoon so had to pay additional parking at another lot further away.

Comfortable and convenient. Needs better maintenance, however. The flush handle was broken (they fixed it the next day on request) and the hot water valve on my bathtub was leaking quite a bit. That's a lot of hot water going down the drain.

It's an older hotel but has tons of character. If you dont mind using a key and glass doorknobs. Not much parking but thats Seattle and you can pay for private.

This hotel is great for price and neighborhood! It is definitely vintage. The staff was great and accommodated by late arrival well. It is close to everything you need, and just about a ten minute walk to Space Needle and EMP museum. The wifi was out for 2/3 of my trip there, but these things happen. My only complaint was that there was no way to control the heater, which made for a room that was too warm to my liking. So, i just turned on the A/C!

Hotel is old and adequate. The bed was extra firm and the pillows were hard. Sheets are clean. Plenty of towels. It is just old and the old is sometimes charming. The old is sometimes shabby. The modern green industrial carpets are worn, the bathroom enamel was very rusty around the drain and many scuffs and chipped paint in the bathroom moldings, etc. But it had a European charm if you like old and battered, All the furniture is mis matched and other than the bed the only place to sit was on a straight backed kitchen chair. So okay, as long as you are prepared mentally not to expect luxury.Tiny AC unit in the window. View was off the dumpster and back parking lot. They could use A BETTER decorated, or did they have one? Very hand me down modern furniture. No elevator. No coffee makers.

The Queen Anne is conveniently located nearby many attractions. The room had full amenities and was an historic experience. Staff are super hospitable, we will definitely come back to stay next time we're in Seattle.

While the staff was fine. The room was less than the ratings on Orbitz. Upon walking into the room, there was NO sense of it being fresh or clean. The whole room felt dirty. I'm kind of annoyed Orbitz made me pay for one nights stay. I changed my reservation the instant I came into the room. Floor was uneven, door was NOT secure and like I said, it just felt dirty. I also think the room had fleas.

This was a nice hotel. Location was great and it was nice to have a kitchen. Parking was an issue and there was no coffee maker in the room...which was surprising since there was a kitchen.
