Great location, beautifully decorated modern&clean

Good stay overall. Very comfortable bed. Hotel has many outlets and ports if you're traveling wit) computers etc. They have thought of many conveniences including a yoga mat, snacks and drinks, wide array of movies etc. front desk staff were very accommodating and friendly. We had an issue during our stay where there was a distinct chemical odor from some repairs that had taken place. Our room, hallway, and elevator all had odor. However, manager was wonderful and made things right for us By giving us some meaningful concessions. We left feeling good about our stay despite the inconvenience. Would definitely recommend this hotel to our friends and hope to return!

Close to Everything

Pros: Clean, close, restaurant in lobby causal and easy to stop into....
Cons: Concierge could have been more organized - made reservations for us and told us to grab the water taxi at 8 pm. The taxi only comes on the hour..
Location: Best Italian place on 4th - Asiago? YUM!!! get the rice balls!!
Don't need a car... everything was super close. The hotel was very clean (which means a lot to me) and we were comfortable. Stayed only three nights but we fit it all in!! Walked to Sounders game, underground tour, ferry thru the locks, water taxi to West Seattle - biked and dinner, Music museum was the BEST. (Made the music video!!)

A Seattle Gem

Great location. Helpful and friendly staff. Excellent eating and drinking establishments on the premises. Yoga mat, umbrella and slipper socks in addition to standard wardrobe extras. Visually engaging art work throughout. Let them know in advance if you don't like sleeping with feather bedding.

No good - stay away unless you have low expectatio

Bad news: stale breakfast items, gym has 2 Precor machines neither working and 6-10lb dumbells and that's it; heat in rooms horrible, 3rd floor smelled like a sewer as soon as you get off elevator- this hotel looks of so cool but it's not for me.
