The hotel provides excellent value for money. The suite was clean, well furnished and spacey and fitted out with a kitchen, including cutlery, plates and microwave to heat up prepared meals, that can be bought from the lobby in the hotel. The hotel is located near Lake Union with many upmarket restaurants along the lake front. Check-in is from 16:00...

I have yet to come across a hotel with no bell man service! Yes you read that right! No bell man. Their explanation? That they are not a full service hotel. Really? Maybe they should put such pertinent points up on their website since all other Residence Inn properties we stayed at had a bell man or two...full service or...

We have enjoyed our stays at Residence Inn's and this was no exception. The staff were efficient and accomodating for our family and two dogs. The room was the biggest we've stayed in yet and like the others very clean and provided a good nights rest. The view of the river front was beautiful and we really enjoyed the openness...

Well, altho it was conveniently located to UoW for my kids sports tournament... everything else about this place is a rip-off! $25 p/day for parking PLUS a $5.50 p/day "parking TAX"?!? Yes, you read that right...$35.50 per day for parking. wow. So naturally, the room rate was inflated as well, $170 p/night. Staff was a bit rude, there no fans/ventillation...

Dear Valued Guest, I am very sorry to hear that we did not exceed your expectations for your stay with us. Although there is not much I can do about Seattle’s parking taxes, I would welcome your feedback and details on the service issues you encountered. I would love the opportunity to correct those areas for our guests, and perhaps...

Only a few hours in town, just coming in off a cruise and flying out early morning hours to return home. The hotel was great with the 2 bed/2 bath option. Shared the hotel room with another couple. Plenty of room, very spacious! We had two balconies, which the view of the water was gorgeous, especially with all of the...

Stayed in a 2 bedroom/ 2 bathroom suite that had plenty of room for my family of 5. Has more ammenidies that we could use including a full kitchen and three flat panel tv's. Free hot breakfast has a very large selection and hot snacks in evenings. Even has a nice self service pantry to variety of food, beverages, &...

I had to spend a week here due to an apartment flood. It's nice, the employees are friendly and really seem to really care about the place. I did cook one night, but our room's kitchen had pots that wobbled on the 2-burner (and the unit's burners were too close to each other to use more than one pot at...

This hotel is very nice and clean and is conveniently located to the lake union and downtown areas. It is within walking distance to many retaraunts. They do offer free breakfast each morning and snacks and drinks on some evenings. The food is pretty average. The rooms are nice and big, clean and many have great views of lake union...

We spent five nights here and the staff were very nice, and the room/suite spacious although unlike some "suites" the living room contained a chaise and not a sofa/fold out bed. The location is not especially convenient as one has to take a street car/trolley from Westlake to get there and in one of the bizarre phenomena of Seattle the...

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. I just needed to come to the city just for one night and I decided to choose the Residence Inn by the water. Great Views and a awesome restaurant across the street. The hotel staff was friendly, (not quick, but friendly). The hotel has a parking garage for large vehicles, as well...
