MarQueen Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Like historical remodels, but this could have used more of a face lift. Parking is a real problem. Ad said breakfast included, but it was not.

Very much liked the historic character and charm of this hotel. The on-suite kitchenette would make this a great location for an extended stay. I was disappointed by the breakfast, however. It was kind of a disaster. First, breakfast didn't start until 8am, which, despite it being a Sunday morning, seemed really late. Arriving downstairs at 7:30am, we had to get coffee at Cafe Lladro and go for a walk while we waited for our prepaid "gourmet" breakfast. It was our anniversary and this was our romantic get-away in the city. We were already disappointed there was no room service available, as we'd have preferred to just do breakfast in our room. Finally, the bar opened. But instead of a nice breakfast spread, the "gourmet" breakfast consisted of pre-made sandwiches in plastic containers, in a self-serve refrigerated case on the bar. The staffer behind the bar did not seem knowledgeable and was barely helpful. It seemed like his first day on the job with no one to help him. My wife and I chose cold sandwiches, a BLT and an avocado-cress croissant. Both of them were frozen solid in the center. Completely inedible. At that point we gave up, and went to Toulouse Petite across the street where we enjoyed a fantastic breakfast. I wish the hotel staff had just directed us there in the first place. The terrible breakfast experience soured what was otherwise a charming stay.

I like how it’s old but new! Very comfy beds and pillows!

We like this hotel because it has authentic Seattle charm. It's not modern by any means, but it's also not sterile and corporate, and everything is in reasonable condition. The beds are comfy. Things are clean. The rooms are big—almost like little apartments (which I'm sure they were when it was built). There is a full kitchen in a separate room in the size room we always book (double queen). I don't know if that is standard in all rooms but we love that feature for traveling with our toddler. There is a sitting room that is connected to the main room but somewhat separate. The staff are nice, the bar downstairs (Tin Lizzie) has a nice groove. We have stayed here multiple times and will return in the future.

The property is definitely old, but well kept. The staff was friendly and accommodating.

We were upgraded to a Queen Anne Suite. I like that these are full apartments (I used to have friends that lived in this building before it became a hotel!). The kitchen has a real fridge, microwave, sink and sitting area, no stove though. Old building with creaky wood floors, but we did not hear anyone above us, and we were on top of a business. comfy bed, nice linens. Maintained with decent working fixtures and the room was clean. My only complaint is the gas furnace (which was GREAT as blasting heat) seemed to blow dusty air, I was sneezing and my eyes were irritated more than usual. But that won't keep me from staying here again.

The hotel is great. Very clean and staff are extremely friendly. I will definitely be back.

You need to advertise that there is no elevator in the hotel!!!

The room was almost certainly the best I've stayed in. Large, with an unexpected kitchen - if I were there for longer, I'd probably do my own cooking. The hotel has got a cool retro style.My one criticism, which stops me from giving it a maximum grade, is the wifi didn't work for me. No big deal for a short-short stay perhaps, but could be problematical for some. Incidentally, as a first time visitor to Seattle, the area, Queen Anne, struck me as more attractive than downtown.

Huge room. Very clean. Great location. Misses the amenities of its competition though.

GREAT location, cool quirky rooms, large rooms, cool old decor. It had a bit of a funky smell, but doesn't all of Seattle have that? Staff was great!

Richard and the staff were all amazing. This was such a unique hotel in a great location.

Wonderful, helpful, courteous and friendly staff. Had some issues with room however. Very low water pressure and hard to control temp in shower. Room had smell of an old building (which it is). Could not open windows for fresh air. Dim lights in the rooms. No channel guide for tv. Again, the staff was terrific. If they could correct these room issues, I would highly recommend the hotel.

There is no elevator and room was smelly. Breakfast could have some improvement.

No elevator. Heater did not work. Room could have been cleaner. Great location. Great service. Nice breakfast.

The pictures of this hotel online are very misleading

Hello, I want to thank you first for choosing the Marqueen and acknowledging the classic charm of our hotel. I now want to apologize for your experience at our breakfast, our breakfast is quite new as we use to have just a basic continental and we have recently made an upgrade to serve more options. This feedback will definitely be passed on to the manager of Tin Lizzie for feedback as we are always trying to improve. I also want to make a note that while the sandwiches are kept in the container they are all from our kitchen made by the chief himself and the ones that need to be refrigerated are kept in the self-served bar container. I do hope you give us another chance for any other future stays. Best and Kindest Regards

Thank you so much for your feedback, we really appreciate it! We are very glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay here at the MarQueen Hotel. The building was built in 1918 and it used to be the dormitory for ford engineers! about 20 years ago it was changed from apartments to a hotel.
