We stayed in Seattle for a total of 3 nights but only stayed at this hotel for one night, wish we would have stayed here all 3!! This hotel has an awesome vibe! The rooms were updated, clean, and the beds were super comfortable. The lobby bar and on-site restaurant we’re very convenient (and delicious!). Would definitely spend my whole trip here and not even look at another hotel if we ever return to Seattle.

The hotel is in a great location. We were able to walk to the fish market and many places to eat. The hotel was clean and everyone was very friendly and accommodating. The room was very spacious and I would stay there again.
