Things I would change

Pros: It was easy access with the shuttle service to airport and transit system to get into Seattle.
Cons: Check on how things work in your gym and get proper circulation in there
Location: nearby are lots of good places to eat within walking distance. Other ways to get around was ORCA. We had no need to rent a car.
Overall the stay was good. Nice access to airport and easy accessibility to city transit. Shuttle service to and from airport was great. Hot water took forever to get hot in the bathroom sink. Room was clean however. Hotel had nice restaurants within walking distance. We went and used the gym facilitates. It was a very small room with no air circulation. One of the 2 treadmills didn't sound like it was working properly. We propped open the door to get some air into the room but were afraid of making noise for guests staying in rooms around the gym. We notified hotel staff and they did bring a fan in--but I would highly recommend them looking into making sure they gym has air conditioning piped in. We also couldn't get our room any warmer when we tried to turn up the thermostat.

Pros: The facility is nice and it is conveniently located, close to the airport.
Cons: The staff members could be pleasant and cheerful. They all seemed so done with people, not much hospitality.
Location: The hotel is near the airport and near freeway access.
It was troubling that the scent of marijuana was overwhelming when I stepped out of the room into the hallway. The smell was present each evening during our stay. I would have appreciated complimentary tea and coffee all day. The complimentary coffee was put away by 10:00am. Complimentary parking would be great. My room keys were activated for one day even though we checked for a multiple day stay. The issue was addressed once I went to the counter with the problem.

We’ve stayed here once before, was not super impressed but it was ok considering we booked last minute. This time our stay will be our last. We were next to 2 rooms where their dogs barked all night long! To make maters worst, our rooms heating unit did not work so it was drafty and chilly all night, the beddings was thin and all you can smell is the scent ouf bleach and chlorine. Room was dirty and bath tub was clogged, showering in knee high water was gross. Needless to say, we will not be coming back, pay the extra $50 and stay up the street at Hilton!

Not Good!!!

Pros: Location and hotel staff
Cons: Everything except for the great staff.
Location: Right across the street from the airport and a few blocks from the ligh rail.
First of all I would like to give a big salute to the staff because they are very kind, friendly and pleasing. The hotel itself is old and outdated. The first room I received The bathroom basin took about 10 minutes to go from cold to hot with the lever being turned to hot and the heater did not work. The next morning I requested to change rooms and the lady at the front desk was very nice and did so. The 2nd room I received the shower was stopped up, the closet was missing one of the sliding doors and the basin water still needed a while to get hot; they sent some one to fix the shower by the time I returned to my room. The heater worked and they put a portable heater in my room as well. The next morning upon leaving my room I noticed several portable heaters outside of a lot of rooms, so I guest there heater was probably faulty as well. I would not recommend this hotel at all unless it was a last resort.

Great hotel within walking distance of the Seattle Airport with a good restaurant right next door. The only thing to complain about was the price. To me, $173 a night is a lot of money.
