Traveled to Seattle from South Carolina to visit family and friends, and to see the sights. Since there were four of us we picked the Residence Inn for its location and room size. After a long cross-country flight and cross-city taxi ride, we arrived at the hotel after midnight. Although I had been told previously that the hotel was completely...

Views from the studios include the lake, wooden boat center and museum, marinas, and Westlake hillside. Nice in daylight, sparkling at night. Quiet on 7th floor. Love the peace of the lobby waterfall. Nice pool. Disappointing this hotel does "not participate in the "Residence Mix" evening receptions during the week. Ordered salads from the available menu and were disappointed, not...

We stayed in the 2 bedroom suite (the 4 of us). Our (adult aged) sons each had a queen size bed in the 2nd bedroom. There was a very small balcony, but, it was very cold out and we didn't make use of it. Having 2 bathrooms was a nice bonus! The living room is very small, but cozy. The...

Was only here for one night on business, but I definitely enjoyed the Residence Inn. The room was huge, and was upgraded to a two bedroom unit due to my original room not being available when I arrived. The staff were all friendly and helpful, such as recommendations for a nearby lunch. The rooms do appear to have undergone a...

What we love about this Residence Inn, as well as most Residence Inns in general, is how family friendly it is and the price is very reasonably considering all the included amenities. The one minor flaw, which can be easily forgiven, is the small and aging elevators. Overall our stay was very good. What makes this hotel stand out in...

Came in to attend a holiday party nearby. Great location in Seattle. Easy to catch an uber. Free hot breakfast, great staff. Walking distance to nice local restaurants and view of Lake Union. Love the sea boats!

I booked the hotel due to a guys night out Christmas dinner party at the hotel. Hotel reception manager told me rooms were redecorated/upgraded one or two years ago. I stayed on 7th (top) floor and had a suite including kitchen, living room, bedroom and bathroom. Everything was nice, clean and luxurious especially taking the price into account. If it...

I especially like the breakfast buffet and complementary coffee service. Also microwave popcorn and a kitchenette in each room is very convenient. Missing a bathtub which I was looking forward to. Comfortable mattress and nice bath products.

I am a Marriott Platinum Premier member, a status earned by my hundreds of nights at the spectrum of Marriott hotels (Fairfield Inn to Ritz Carlton). We have stayed at this hotel many times. In the past, we would have rated it as a 4 out of 5. But, things have changed and not for the better. The Front Desk...

Thank you for taking a moment to share your feedback about your most recent experience with us, and I am sorry to hear that this stay was less than excellent. Residence Inn hotels have in fact redesigned our breakfast offering recently and replaced some of our rotating hot items with additional protein items, and fewer carbohydrates. As a loyal Marriott...

This is great hotel when visiting with family or friends, as each room comfortably sleeps 3 people. Also there is full kitchen in each room, which great for extended stay. Location is near space needle, this will need bit of wall to other tourist attraction or short Uber ride. Will stay here during next visit to Seattle.
