I was very pleasantly surprised! Booked a 1 Bedroom Suite, Sofabed, Lake View, Balcony - bedroom & suite look out to city view including the Space Needle! Georgous w/ lights on at night, early morning is another beautiful perspective. The free breakfast was far better than expected. Wide variety of choices! & the coffee is good. I would definitely stay...

We stayed at this hotel beause we were going to a show at WaMu theatre and didn't want to drive all the way home afterwards since it would be late. This hotel is so big but it was fairly easy to navigate and I loved the rooms. I think we got upgraded to a suite because there were two rooms,...

I booked this hotel because I was traveling with a friend, and with an 8 night stay, we wanted to be together in the same room but also wanted to enjoy some privacy as well. The Residence offered 2 bedrooms and 2 separate baths, plus a full kitchen and living area. It was like our own little villa. The bonuses...

Very friendly staff at this facility. From housekeeping to front desk everyone is very helpful and nice. Management is doing a good job! The room is very comfortable, well furnished and the amenities are very good. Housekeeping is very attentive and accommodating when requests are left for them. The breakfast buffet is good considering it is included. The light dinner...

Spent 5 days at the Residence Inn in October and was very pleased with the entire experience. We had six women and a 17 month old in a two bedroom suite and it was more than enough room. We never cooked in the room, but filled our fridge to the brim. What a help that was with a small toddler....

We found the hotel was great. There were 6 of us in total plus the family dog. The room was great as it had a king size bed for the grandparents and two queen size beds for the kids and their parents. Along with that a common area and kitchen. Great for a large crowd! Lots of room in total...

I stay at Marriott's several times per year and I really like the brand but I was seriously disappointed in the Residence Inn at Lake Union. The entire hotel is in desperate need of being remodeled and updated. Help, I've fallen in 1979 and I can't get up! Everything is old and tired with outdated decor and questionable cleanliness. The...

Dear Valued Guest, I am very sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with your stay. I wanted to let you know that we will be starting a complete renovation of the hotel’s public space next month. It will be quite a transformation of our lobby and hotel. I hope that you will reconsider and try us again after...

I think it must have been an Embassy suites before a Marriott property.Great size suites, comfortable for a several day stay. Fab free breakfast and even great free heavy apps in the evening on certain nites with free wine / beer. Front desk tries hard. Housekeeping staff are nice. Streetcar stop 1block away. Nice lake side location. Restaurants across the...
