This hotel is very conscientious about Covid-19 safety. All staff are kind, positive and eager to serve. The environment is pleasant and restful.

I must preface this by saying we stayed on New Year’s Eve, so it’s understandable that the night might be a little wild, but... The hotel’s “no-smoking” policy was not followed or enforced. Numerous guests were out smoking on their balconies & in their rooms all night long. Stinky smoke filled out room. The topper of the night: At 3:00am we awoke to yelling, banging, and a woman screaming. Evidently a domestic disturbance in a room a few down from us. We (and other guests) alerted the front desk who then contacted police. The altercation lasted almost two hours. I’ll spare the details, but it was quite scary with screaming and cops in the hallway outside our door. I watched cautiously from the peep hole. We left the hotel a few hours later. Now, of course the altercation is not the fault of the hotel, but hotel officials have not reached out to us other than to send us a receipt for our incidentals. Other than the sleepless/scary/smoky night, it’s a nice hotel, wonderful lake view location, big rooms, comfortable bed, and felt very clean during COVID-19.

Our room wasn't really clean, in the bathroom baseboards were very dusty ( full of hair) sam on wall.. you d sit on toilet looking at hair on floor. Pool is so tiny , looks in real life like for couple people only.But the most disturbing for me was the fee to park the car. This was the first time when i was made to pay for it. Never before i had to pay for the car to park by the hotel. $90 for 2 days. For that reason i will not be coming back.

Easy access, secure parking, nice size rooms. Spacious areas to visit in the lobby area. facility geared towards longer staying customers.

We had a good experience overall. At check in they were really busy and were checking people in “first come first served” type of deal, although there were reservations. They wrote our name and number down to call us when our room was ready but didn’t ever call. I would up calling 2 hours after our check in time and then they said the room was ready. They did allow us access to the parking garage and pool before we checked in which was nice. The free breakfast was great! The room set-up was great! The location next to Lake Union was also great! The indoor pool and hot tub were definitely on the small side.

Wish I'd discovered this hotel on previous visits. we had a suite and it was perfect, and less expensive than two rooms at other hotels. We could all hang out together in the living room while having privacy in separate bedrooms. Clean hotels are very important and this place was perfect. One of the main reasons we chose Residence Inn was that breakfast is included. We don't have to waist time looking for someplace to eat before we start the day. The only disappointment was that our room was not ready until 6:30 pm. They say checkin is at 4. On the other hand, they did allow us a late check out.

The hotel was lovely convenient highway access, the hotel staff was very helpful in finding my left behind item and mailing it back to me. can’t wait to see what the Marriott in California has to offer .

It was great until we went to the pool. It had a layer of funk and hair on top of the pool water.

Very nice room and the staff was great! The ONLY complaints I have are the lack of towels at the pool. But I guess it could be worse.

Great check in with Ernest and another lady asking about our trip, blonde lady on the second day was Rude when I reported we couldn't get the card reader to work to enter the parking garage. Kids loved the activity center and pool. Breakfast was perfect both mornings!

Loved having the extra room to spread out. Also, it gave us the flexibility to have the dog with us.

The room was comfortable enough and we did not hear noise from adjacent guestrooms. Location was nice as it was walking distance to the Lake and was several short bus rides to get to the Space needle and Music museum area. A negative was the 30 dollar charge to park a rental car in the hotel garage mainly because the charge was not mentioned until we were checking out. Breakfast offerings were numerous and acceptable.

Always good to visit Seattle. My hotel stay was very pleasurable. Great location & everything at the hotel was as expected, no problems checking in, room was clean & very comfortable at a good price, Definitely will book my next visit here again.

The hotel has a good location and the rooms were comfortable. The Front desk staff was great. We found the parking to be expensive (for a Residence Inn) and the spaces very small leaving little room to exit the car. Breakfast selection and seating was very limited and the food service staff were not very friendly/helpful.

front desk staff very helpfull with tips for day trips and transportation available.

The room was comfy and the location is great. Loved the complementary coffee in the lobby...and the staff was lovey.

Took family of nine on vacation and this hotel is not close to any thing. It cost a bus fare (both ways) to get to downtown or any where else you need to go and the bus or street line both have a poor system of paying. It was a cost of $20.00 one way for us to go anywhere. The hotel was not helpful in helping us find the different ways to get around. The breakfast buffet was good but other than that the hotel lobby and service left something to be desired. Would not return to this hotel next year.

Loved the lobby, pool, breakfast and rooms. Very reasonable and perfect for teens. Will try to book every time family goes to Seattle.
