Hello! Thank you for taking the time to reach out. Sorry we didn't get to experience all the restaurants in the neighborhood. Just a couple of blocks over in either direction we have multiple restaurants from Thomas Street Warehouse to the Armory at the Seattle Center and plenty in between. Hope to see you on your next visit.

Nice Place to stay

Pros: - Nice Staff - Clean & modern decor - Reasonably priced for the location
Cons: While the room was clean and modern, The beds & pillows were well worn. The hotel should replace beds & pillows after so many uses.
Location: The hotel is in a business area, so leisure travelers will have to walk or catch a ride to attractions. Although, Seattle Center isn't too far.
Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. The room was comfortable, but lacked a view. Those that like a firm bed maybe disappointed. Both beds were soft and needed replacement as well as the pillows. While I realize it's expensive to replace beds, it is key to a good nights sleep. The shower on the other-hand was excellent! Also they provided flavored ice-water in the lobby which is much appreciated after long walks. In terms of location, it's o-k if you don't mind walking. Most of the restaurants are located down in Belltown or near the Pike which is over a mile away. There is the Emerald Grill next door however their prices are a bit steep for basic fare with a limited menu. Tip: rather tan renting a car and paying $19 /night to park, we chose to use Lyft which was much less expensive. Also we didn't have to deal with parking downtown which is a challenge. Overall we enjoyed our stay...

Nice hotel, centrally located

Pros: The staff was the best part of our hotel stay
Cons: I would have liked a continental breakfast or at least coffee and danish in the lobby in the morning.
The desk staff were pleasant, the room was comfortable although the set-up was a little odd; it was two rooms with no door separating them and the bathroom was in one room and the kitchen in the other.

Nice, clean, close to Seattle Center

Cons: There were several times when we came into the hotel that people were sitting RIGHT outside the front door, smoking.
Location: It's an easy walk to the Space Needle and EMP. There was some construction around the hotel, but it wasn't bad.
We had a good experience. Check in was quick and friendly. The room was clean and nice. Beds were comfy. We were fairly close to the road, but didn't hear much noise. The only thing that could have been better was the "smoking area." It appeared to be RIGHT outside the front door. You couldn't get through the cloud of smoke. I have an asthma prone child and it was a little offensive.

Great location

Located downtown, super close to kery park, space needle. Free wifi, not free parking. air conditioner is too noisy. But the room is clean. Staffs are friendly, you can tell them which floor you like and they'll arrange you to that floor.

Great Value for the Price

We booked a twin room for 3 people and as soon  as we requested an extra bed they changed us to another room with an extra mattress with no charge. Rooms were clean, spacious, nothing to complain about. Location is pretty good, very close to space needle, staff was super friendly.
