This is my go to place when I’m in Seattle and this visit was as expected from the time you walk in you notice the cleanliness of the lobby and the friendly greeting as you approach the front desk. Dawn was able to get us a room with two beds and a view of the city. The other reason for choosing this hotel is because of the cleanliness of the rooms. Clearly housekeeping takes pride in their work. The bathroom was spotless and the carpet was clean. The linens were fresh smelling and quite inviting at the end of a long day. And last but not least, the complimentary hot breakfast in the morning. Super fresh and with plenty of options. Very close to Pikes Market and other attractions. Also at checkout Trapp was at the desk and was super helpful and when I mentioned that I would be back he offered to help with my next reservation, I told him I would need to do later. He was very friendly and professional but not robotic like but just plain polite and kind and said that they would look forward to seeing us again. I would give them a 10 but the scoring only goes to 5.

Hotel's Favourite
I stayed here upon my arrival to a week long vacation in Seattle and Mt Rainer. Hotel was nice, clean, friendly staff, and there are several attractions and restaurants within walking distance. I wanted to stay at this location again at the time of leaving on my trip, although they were booked solid and had no availability. Would definitely stay here again in the future.

Be advised if you choose to stay here, you are told only after paying for your stay that your only option for parking is $30 per night at " a parking garage they have an agreement with." There are 2 other garages within blocks that charge less. Comfy beds, spotless bathroom, but drapes needed cleaning.

It was so clean for how older of a building it was. Value was great. Online said there was minimum parking on site, but when we arrived it didn’t look like there was any. Had to walk to a parking garage, so I would keep that in mind. Didn’t bother me, but it might others. Will definitely think about staying here again in the future.

Interesting location close to Ferry. Beautiful older hotel close to downtown and sports complex. Easy to walk to parking that was about a block away. Breakfast was great and service was good. Staff was friendly and convenient to downtown

Great location and vibe in this throwback hotel. We loved the vibe, service and can't beat location and price. So many things to do and places to eat within walking distance. Close to the ferry, boardwalk, clubs, restaurants and souvenirs shops. Views were great and noise was very limited considering location. We slept all night with no interruption. The bed was super comfy! Highly recommend.

This was a pleasant surprise. Located in a nice location with easy walking to downtown and Pike Place Market. Loved the way the 110 yr old hotel had been refurbished while keeping the character. We will definitely be back. Great value for price.

The hotel is located in the middle of Seattle downtown, which is very continent to visit several attraction places. It is easy to access several good restaurants nearby. The view is good depending on the room. You may have the port and city view which is quite nice.
