I had an awesome experience my service animal was allowed to stay so made it nice for me. It was my birthday and that was a nice treat. Thank u for the Superb service! I can't wait to stay there again!

Located in the downtown district on the corner of 4th & Seneca, the hotel is walking distance from shopping, Pike's Market, the 5th Ave Monorail Station, the convention center and more restaurants than you can get to in a long visit. The two-floor lobby often has entertainment, a nice bar and a seating area with fireplace. The rooms are very clean, the concierge very helpful and room service quick...although the 21% tip seems excessive. Also, the windows are well sealed so if you want or need quiet, this hotel offers peace & quiet in the heart of the city.

I had booked another room with a hotel nearby, and calcelled when I noticed that the W was much nicer, more affordable and closer to Pikes Place than what we had. I'm so glad we chose this hotel, the service was great. The atmosphere was great, and our room was upgraded at no cost when we arrived. Joaquin in the bar was great and my boyfriend even got a drink on the house for his birthday during our stay. We will definitely be back.

I wasn't expecting to like the W. Our son is the meillenial,not us. Thus, i had a preconception that service would be indifferent because we aren't their target demographic. Could not have been more wrong. For the price point, this is really a 5 star place. The staff was extremely professional, pleasant and helpful in check in, check out, and other services. We stayed in a WOW suite. The room lay out was superb. The square footage was much more than expected. Other members of our group had a double room and thought the same. Well appointed, modern in style but not sterile. Spotless too. The music at night blares and thumps with quite a beat, but that's what the W is known for. Once in our room, the noise was not an issue. Overall a good experience and makes me rethink my prior reluctance to stay at other W hotels in the chain.

The checking process is very easy. The staff was very helpful and were happy to help with all our requests. The Hotel is walking distance from the Convention center and is in the middle of Downtown. The room is spectacular, clean, the beds are the most comfortable hotel bed I had so far. They have a business center where I was able to work from until late. The bar is great with DJ playing on week end days. Definitely will go back on my next trip to Seattle!!!

The Thai wife and I stayed here for a night recently. We arrived late and despite quite a bit of loud music from the bar area which is open to the lobby, were checked in quickly and professionally. We were allocated a high floor room as per request. It faced north giving it a glimpse of the Space Needle. The room is very modern, clean and everything worked. We slept well and headed downstairs for breakfast next morning. Breakfast is al la carte in Trace. While the food and service were quite good, the check for two lattes, two orange juices, a small fruit salad and two hot breakfast at $77 is a little too much. The hot breakfasts are not even provided with toast. Over a long term stay this would get both costly and annoying. Being SPG Platinum we got free wifi which was quite strong and reliable. Overall this is a well run hotel in a convenient location in the Seattle central business district.

It feels like Starwood tried to squeeze its sparkling brand into a dingy, mid-tier hotel building. After stayed in numerous W's in US and elsewhere, this one felt different from the moment we checked in. Then, I realized what was missing: Energy. Energy is what makes W a widely copied brand. But, maybe it's W Seattle's limited space. Maybe it's the lethargic rooms and wallpaper. Either way, I wished I had stayed closer to Capital Hills, where hotels are less pricey and parking aplenty. One bright spot is its staff. Everyone we met, from managers to house cleaning, was warm and helpful. Kudos to the management for making lemonade out of this downtown lemon of a building.

Dear W, I recently engaged business with you the week of April 16th, and I was disappointed. My room smelled like sewage. I inquired at the front desk, and the best your “welcome center” could do to resolve the stench issue was to send an engineer. The sewage was not coming from my room. I asked to be upgraded into a suite, and my request was declined. I unfortunately will not be staying with your hotel anymore. Thank you for the wake-up call. Kind regards,

Very nice hotel, has a good vibe. I had a corner room, which was excellent. The bed was great. The bathroom was clean. I really like the floor to ceiling windows in the room. And, they have good thick shades to block out the light at night. Would recommend a higher floor if you are a light sleeper as the lower floors seem to be a little bit noisier. Will definitely stay again.

This hotel is 5 stars all of the way, but the only reason we knocked off 1 star was our room faced an open sided parking garage. No view of Seattle, no sense of privacy, had to keep the curtains closed the whole time. The furnishings and decor are somewhat modern with an Asian feel. The bathroom was bigger than my kitchen. The soaking tub was large and the complimentary bath products were from a great line smelling of lemons. I have high nasal and upper respiratory allergies, especially when triggered with scent, so I was glad to have bath products of lemon scent instead of something floral. This trip was a last minute idea after our attempted Kayak trip on Orcas Island was a bust. (Rained out, and the tour took our money.) We were so glad to be able to readjust our mini-break at the W, switching from rustic to a luxurious vacation after our original plans had fallen through. I used to work in the area and the W is truly in the heart of Downtown Seattle, mere blocks from shopping, entertainment, and the water. The staff didn't snub us for coming in messy due to long travel times across the ferry and wearing kayaking trip gear. They were courteous, kind, efficient, and top notch. If Hubby and I want another luxurious stay in downtown Seattle, we highly recommend the W. Knocking 1 star as the bar is a bit overrated on prices for the amount of food you get, and the seating is too low to the ground and uncomfortable. Also, bar can get *SUPER* crowded during busy times.
