The Motif is centrally located. It was close to Pike Place Market and the convention center. Check-in went well. The room had up to date furnishings and a nice view.

I'm very satisfied with my stay here. The view from our room was fabulous. The staff was friendly. I loved the decor. I enjoyed the restaurant at the hotel, Frolik. The food and cocktails there were delicious. The hotel was very clean.

The decor was excellent and the room was more spacious than expected. The room was very clean. The room service was however more slow than expected when we asked for more towels. Overall, we had a pleasant experience at the hotel.

clean, efficient, attractive surroundings and room, great view. only downside was the cleaning person left the vacuum cleaner in my room, and there was water bottle that had been previously opened and apparently drank from. Also, could hear sirens and traffic noise from the 17th floor (but expected in a large city).

This place is stylish and comfortable. I really loved all of the decorative touches. The room and service were great for the price. We got an executive suite, and it was huge and beautiful. My only complaint was that the large blown-glass light fixture in our bedroom was covered in dust. Um, not top notch! And they ran out of...

My stay at Motif was comfortable and relaxing. The hotel staff were kind and clearly well-trained in their positions. They met my requests with ease and I didn't have to worry about anything during my stay at Motif. Most impressed, will be coming back.

I wanted to give the Motif a good rating because of the excellent quality of my room, the helpful staff, and the amount of accommodations and services provided, Those were all great.
