We had a 2-bed suite. The room was clean, marble floors and tiles in the bathroom were clean and well-caulked (pet peeve of mine), TV seemed kind of small for the room space, beds were a bit firm with a standard mattress pad over them. No musty smells. I'm a former housecleaner and pay attention to details. Overpriced on 6 little pieces of gummy, slimy ravioli, no sauce or salad for $15.I'm vegetarian, but still need food. It was too busy, and I was too hungry to wait another 1/2 hour for food. The Argentinian Malbec was fantastic, with my wee 6 pieces of "tinioli". Staff was nice and consistently asked for Vaccine cards and IDs. Valet service was kind, housekeeping was prompt (only a half roll in the hotel room) and they brought one up in 4 minutes. For veggie minded people, I recommend Veggie Grill, its about a 1.5 blocks just north of University & 4th Ave. Had a great sandwich with chickpea salad. Stay here for deco elegance, cleanliness and service.

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.
