Room was fine except for the TV not working and the whining of the pipes every time someone used the water. The only good thing about the hotel is that it is close to the airport. Other than that, don't bother...

Cathy's customer service was excellent. She was able to price match an online rate for us. We were originally going to get a room with two beds, but due to security reasons, our room was upgraded to a suite at no charge. Overall our stay was great.

John, the shuttle driver from the airport, and Thomas, the server in the restaurant the next morning were both OUTSTANDING!! They both helped make a long, frustrating day of airline delays/ cancellations not only tolerable, but downright enjoyable. Thank you also to the front desk staff who were both patient and helpful. Room was clean and very comfortable. My only... More

We were in Seattle for a special screening of our film. We stayed here at the recommendation of a friend. The room was large. The Bed was very comfortable and the ease of access to USB ports by the bed was very helpful since I use my phone as an alarm. The staff was super friendly and went out of... More

In Seattle for the day and the staff was incredibly warm and welcoming at the end of a long day. I was happy to heat up at the fireplace in the lobby after the obligatory Seattle downpour on the ride in. It's a small detail but the soaps and shampoo are really nice, as a frequent traveler I love that... More

Well I remember this place used to be nicer. But I won't be back. The rooms smell like they used to be smoking rooms. They are way out dated and not entirely clean. The restaurant attached is not that good.

We had a layover and stayed here. It's only ten minutes from the airport and offers a free shuttle. There was a nice outdoor courtyard with a pool and hot tub. We never used it as it was late when we arrived and early when we left. The rooms are not elaborate but were sufficient. The hotel was clean and... More
