“Economy Stay, Prime Location”
Reviewed 4 January 2012

My husband and I have stayed here twice, one night each time - first to attend a music concert at Nordstrom's Benaroya Hall and second for a soccer game at (formerly QWEST Field but now called) CenturyLink Stadium. We knew that it was going to be extremely basic accommodation so we weren't disappointed. Being as central as it was it was a quick walk to the Public Market or to shops such as Macy's. The rooms are spotless and adequate for a no-frills stay. Given that all buses in the downtown core are FREE 24/7 there is the option of taking a bus to/from any downtown destination.Because the weather was so nice we walked to the soccer game and back. It is quite a distance so one would want comfortable walking shoes to do so. I was surprised to see how the area around the Public Market seemed to roll up the carpets by 9pm, hardly anything open to go for an after-game beverage/dessert.

This is a gem of a place. It's the one clean, upscale Hotel I could find in the heart of downtown Seattle that had double rooms for under $100 a night. The booking staff was very friendly and knowledgeable and made it easy for me to unexpectedly extend my stay. There is free access to a computer in the Hotel lobby - so if you don't have a Wi-Fi ready computer with you, you still have Internet access here.
There is no breakfast served in the Hotel, but you are within walking distance of many coffee/bakery shops and of a 24-hour McDonald's.
If I'm ever in Seattle again, I would definitely book into the Moore!

Room Tip: If you are extremely noise averse, you might want to choose a room at the back of the Hotel because...

I live in Vancouver BC so we always go down to Seattle for concerts and ball games. This hotel is my favorite to stay in for these group outings. It's about $100 per night for 2 double beds, the rooms are clean and comfortable and there's a private bathroom with shower.The hotel itself is old and has a lot of character. It's in a great location with tons of stuff to do in the neighborhood. Not too far away from Pike Place Market, the Aquarium, Safeco or Qwest stadiums which makes it easy to get home after a game, walkable if you're not in a rush and have an extra 30-40 min to stroll. They don't have parking at the hotel, but they do have a discounted rate for a parking garage a block and a half away.

Room Tip: It's good to check ahead and make sure they have rooms available, during busy times of the year...

Located in downtown Seattle we were able to leave our car parked for most of our visit. We were within walking distance to Pike Place, great shopping and restaurants. Our room was not ready when we arrived so we went to eat and it still was not ready when we got back. I would advise letting the staff know if you will be arriving at check in time so your room will be ready. The room was clean, the staff friendly. Our only problem was no air conditioner, Seattle was having unusually warm weather and we had to attempt to sleep with the windows open. This was difficult because of the location, nightclubs, sirens and garbage pick up very early. I would recommend this hotel for anyone on a budget. It was very reasonably priced and has a lot of history. And check out the painting on the elevator.

My husband and I stayed at the Moore for 3 nights. We walked to Pike's Place Market daily (2 blocks away) we walked to the Space Needle (about 10 blocks away) and would walk to breakfast and dinner daily. Our room was recently remodeled, we had a view of Elliot's Bay and it was gorgeous!!

Room Tip: We stayed on the 7th floor on the front side, perfect!
