We took the Quick Shuttle from Vancouver to Seattle, the downtown stop was a $6.50 cab fare to our hotel.
The Paramount Hotel exceeded our expectation. It is an older hotel that has been renovated with a contemporary and functional style. The rooms are an average size, but are well laid out. They are very clean and soundproof. We were on the 4th floor facing Pine Street and heard nothing.
The beds were super comfy and the a/c worked great. I liked the large tiles in the shower that went right up to the ceiling. The towels were exceptionally soft and absorbant. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, you got the feeling they actually all enjoyed coming to work - which you tend to see a lot less of these days in the service industry and really made our stay even more enjoyable.
The additional bonus is the great location and the very reasonable price. I left this hotel feeling like I had made a really excellent choice.
Walking out the door to the left of the front desk puts you at the corner of 8th & Pine, turn right down Pine and walk the 8 blocks straight down to Pike's Market, along the way you may want to make a few stops at Nordstroms, Macey's, Gap etc.
We took a cab the next day to pier 91 ($12.00 fare) hopped on a Princess Cruise ship & sailed back to Vancouver - a fun weekend for 2 middle aged sisters.
The next time either of us are in Seattle, we definitely would stay again at the Paramount.
