MOXY Seattle Downtown

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Very Small Rooms.... Lobby, lounge and Bar area as you enter hotel is welcoming and appealing, staff very friendly and helpful. Dining options are very limited at hotel but plenty of pubs and restaurants nearby. A short walk to Lake Union and the Museum of History and Industry is worth a visit. The room is a disappointment, very small and trendily furnished. Exposed concrete ceiling and beams, no closet, drawers or place to park a suitcase. Good thing for me it was just a one night stay, don’t recommend much longer. Very pricy for what you get.

3942 Great stay at the Moxy. Review of MOXY Seattle Downtown Pending review This is definitely a hotel for the young (and the young at heart such as me), The lobby reminds me of the lobby of Salesforce in SF...not your typical hotel lobby. We were upgraded to a corner room which was small but very nicely laid out. All the staff were excellent and made you feel welcome. Kudos to the young lady at the reception/bar area in the late night hours..she was so nice to us older guys, we had a great conversation. Breakfast coffee was excellent and they had a few nice items for purchase that were not overpriced. I wonder why this Marriott brand is not in the SF bay area with all the high tech firms. I will look for this brand on future travels.

Not impressed. Thin walls (very noisy), dogs yapping (lenient pet policy but no no-pet floor), no drawers to empty suitcase. I don't mind smaller rooms, but they need to be space efficient and soundproofed. Aloft did a better job of this from my recollection. Not sure about other travelers, but I unpack my case at the start of the trip, and then pack the clothes into the case as they get dirty so I am left with minimal or no packing to do at the end ... can't really do that for more than a one night stay in this room.

Listen, this hotel is totally fine, but wow the hipster staff in the lobby/bar area (excluding check-in/out staff) are truly next-level lazy. This was my second business trip spent at this property and after giving it another chance, I will not be returning. The visuals and vibe are nice enough - think Pacific Northwest Smokey the Bear hipster vibe from 2010 - but it’s well done for what it is. Rooms are tiny but comfortable and clean -aside from not providing an iron in the room (sorry, not gon’ iron my clothes in a flipping hallway). Here’s my beef: both times I’ve stayed here the staff at the bar act like petulant teenagers dragging themselves toward you to take your order as if you’re their mom trying to pry them out of bed at 6am. Once given a drink, it’s goodbye town. They’ll just go lean against the other side of the bar on their phones for appalling lengths of time, never asking you would you like another, or even “Hey, hows your day?” or “Did you enjoy your cocktail”? Nothin’. Just blank stares and inaction. Basically the hotel feels like amateur hour. That would be okay if I were paying $150 to stay at the airport no-tell motel, but not for these prices in this neighborhood. PS Dear hotel representative, Please don’t send me a pat, canned response that you’d love to hear from me about what you can do in the future to make it better. Tried it and I don’t believe you.

While we didn't have a great experience, I do believe the concept of the hotel is good and I am certain that the staff listened to our issues and is making changes. The lobby is a communal place for people to sit/visit/have a bite to eat and a drink at the bar. Felt like it was a great place for a younger crowd, not really catering to the older generation. Aside from an couple of small things, and one major issue that they seem to be working on, my only other complaint is that the heat does not reach the bathroom and when it's cold, getting out of the shower is not fun when the room is freezing. The manager listened to our concerns and complaints and was extremely responsive. One was potentially a dangerous situation had it been a single person in the room. She immediately put the building people into action to fix the problem. I applaud her on that. Location was good for business travelers, as well as tourists, although there are not a ton of restaurants in the area. I would definitely suggest this for people looking for a less formal type of hotel.

This is the man bun of hotels. If you think a man bun is sexy, you might like this hotel. I personally do not. Also... communal ironing board in the hall way. WTF Marriott? Is this a hotel or a hostel? It is clean and safe and they give you a free drink when you check in. Also...there is a see saw in the lobby. Make of that what you will.

Actually really liked this hotel. Lobby spaces were great and trendy. Decor was super modern and comfortable, and I loved the curated look of the rooms from the old-style phone to the hanging iron hooks for the "closet". The room itself wasn't huge, but I actually enjoyed the coziness of it, and it was perfect for 1 person. Helps that everything felt brand new. Quiet room; couldn't hear anyone in the adjacent rooms. No frills in the bathroom though like lotion or shower caps, but this is America and you can buy that stuff easily if you didn't bring them. Disappointed there was no room service option, but Ba Bar is right next door!! This restaurant is a real treat and eating takeout in the room was perfect. I would definitely stay here again.

This was my second stay at a Moxy property (the other was in London), and I love the concept. Yes, the rooms are basic (no mini-bar, safety deposit box, coffee/tea making facilities, wardrobe, stationery or ironing board, which is available in the hallway), but for many travellers these things are not essentials. The lobby is more like a mixture between a cocktail bar and a tech start-up office (you check in at the bar) with trendy furniture, bookshelves, foosball, beanbags and chill-out music. I’ve been converted.

We actually loved this hotel. The concepts are great and although the room is small, it’s functional and corky. Free coffee in the morning and drink upon arrival. We will definitely stay again next time we are in Seattle.

The pictures show exactly how small and cramped this place is. The room was cold even though the thermostat was set at 77. This is due to cheap windows and poorly positioned HVAC unit. No carpet on the floor. When I called down asking for towels the desk clerk was rude and unfriendly. It was probably the General Manager because when I encountered her in the hallway, she was very snotty and had NO TIME for guest. She talked down to me and other guest. Marriott customer service training failed here. I would never return to this, place.
