This is a small 17 room place right in the heart of Belltown easy to walk to downtown, market, water front, or Seattle Center. Literally 4 or 5 blocks to everything Seattle has to offer. It seems well run, very clean, comfy, and a nifty wine reception at night. Basement housing an awesome single screen theater with first run movies,... More

This is a class act with a beautiful bar and wonderful food. Service was good. The steaks were phenomenal. The Spanish coffee was not so good but the rest of the meal was very tasty. It was a good time by all

2 night and a day relaxing. The staff and location were great. The desk staff gave great suggestions for food and sites to see or avoid. While there, you get comp coffee or tea and a nice conversation pit by a fireplace. YOU HAVE TO TRY THE BLACK RAVEN local brews.

They do happy hour from 5-7 pm with wine and cheese, though I missed it. 19 total rooms with suites that were of good size. Very friendly staff with plenty of... More

Large clean room. Enjoyed the complimentary wine and snacks in the afternoon. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Great location. No elevators though!!! Had to walk your bags up two flights of steps.

We stayed in an atrium room. Considering it was downtown, in a large city, it was a large room. We had a full size couch, chair with ottoman, a desk and refrigerator in a closet.
