We stayed one night before boarding an Alaskan cruise ship at pier 91. Was a great location as we set out in foot to explore Seattle before our ship departed. Only about a 15 minute drive to the pier. Rooms were average, had some minor issues but nothing most other hotels don't have from time to time that are understandable....

The price and the website led me to believe that this would be a 4- or 5-star experience. Nothing of the kind. Location was great. Service was nothing spectacular. Beds were lumpy and bottomed-out once I was supine. Food at the Frolik was decent, as was the service, but nothing to write home about. Restaurant prices were high for the...

Seek other dining options off-site. Frolik is more of a bar atmosphere and does not even offer a waiting list for tables, let alone reservations. Very limited menu selections, especially for main course entrees. Not much in the way of health option. Mostly bar food cuisine, drawing a younger crowd and music is loud and not relaxing, competing with conversation....

Great hotel in a great location. Many popular Seattle attractions are within walking distance. Stayed here with my husband and teenage son for a leisure trip. We had a nice family suite that was spacious and comfortable.

Great location downtown, within walking distance from tourist spots and great food. Staff was great, very friendly and helpful. Frolik was also a great place to hang out and have some drinks. I would highly recommend this hotel.

We booked this hotel for a some mother/daughter time in the city. Excellent location to many favorite shops and close to the market. The only thing that I would have loved is a mini bar in the room or a microwave for late night snack or leftovers.
