This is a pleasant lounge; lots of room and not too loud. The service was good but this is a place where you wait and wait to pay your bill. We enjoyed their signature burger and drinks, I had the beet salad and it was delicious! If you can visit during warmer months, the outdoor patio is worth a visit....

This hotel is perfectly located to explore the city. Just a short stroll to shopping, restaurants, the markets, the pier and the monorail. You couldn't pick a more convenient hotel. I highly recommend it.

This is a hotel that has had a complete makeover. It is fairly nice and fine for an few nights stay in Seattle. The staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms clean and comfortable. We were there for one night during January and the hotel lobby, restaurant and hallways were very cold. Our breakfast server had his coat and toque...

Everything except the low shower and the cold hotel temperature was excellent. The hotel is undergoing renovations and hopefully, the new showers will be better and the hotel temperature will be improved.

The reason why I booked this hotel was because of the roof top lounge, unfortunately during my stay it wasn't open. Also a couple of the light outlets did not work, we had to unplug lamps in order to use the outlet. Other than that it's a great hotel, walking distance from pike place. A big plus was that it...

It is a beautiful hotel. This is my second stay. This year the lobby and the elevator was freezing cold. The staff has individual heaters at each desk, this seems a bit much for me, just turn up the heat. Maybe move that fire table you have outside into the lobby.

First - the rooms in this trendy tower are comfortable and luxurious. Nice beds, understated modernist decor, good showers, nice towels, etc...so it's a comfortable stay. But...the lobby is unwelcoming and service a bit frosty. There's no comfy communal space to gather so the dude offering complimentary wine in the lobby has to stand forlornly in a corner hoping someone...

I had stayed at this property before it was a destination Motif hotel for business. Then it was a value hotel. Now it is both an experience AND a value. We truly had a great stay. Charlene went above and beyond to make a small inconvenience created by their current remodel into something special for our whole family. We enjoyed...

The HVAC was not working in lobby and Lobby and restaurant were freezing. No HVAC in either during a cold snap but no space heaters were set up to help. Guests were freezing. Rooms were great. Good location. Overpriced food and poor quality. Dine elsewhere.

The hotel is clean, the staff is friendly, and the location is convenient. They have a nice repeat visitor program, offering room upgrades and late check out when available. I have been staying there every month for the past several. Heather at the front desk is a shining star!!
