Location at Harbor Steps was great for visiting all central Seattle destinations and restaurants. Layout was good, beds were comfortable, kitchen reasonably well stocked. Pool and hot tub were a nice extra.
Property showed some signs of wear but nothing that detracted from its suitability.
Wifi did not work when we arrived. (We stayed 3 nights). A few calls to Alfred, a visit from the site manager and another visit from a technician got a new router installed a day and a half later. All good after that.
I booked a reservation at Stay Alfred 1st ave apartments on booking.com in July for Nov 18-21 with a group of couples (2 separate rooms). It was non-refundable. 4 days before, I get the first confirmation listing a different address. When I call to ask, they say it's a mixup and booking has the wrong address, when I ask why would i book it then, they tell me that it was overbooked. When I see that there is another 2 bedroom apartment available, after much arguing, and making booking.com call them, they switch me to it. Problem solved right? WRONG
2 days before I get another email saying one again they've switched me back, and that they were informed that the other apartment isn't actually available any more just that day. WHY would they advertise an apartment if they don't actually have it. Their only consolation was moving us to a place 1 mile away (not in the same building) which was "equivalent." it's way less amenities and on the other side of the highway - not at all downtown, or a refund - which 48 hours before a weekend in seattle doesn't exactly let you find an equivalent 2 bd 2 br place..
BEWARE these guys will change your reservation to any of their properties at any time and somehow they consider that acceptable! I've never heard of any hotel overbooking non-cancellable confirmed reservations! If i could I'd give 0/5 stars
Great location near the waterfront and other downtown attractions! Nice sized apartment with so many nice amenities.
This place was very nice(: the apartment was neat and tidy and had all the things needed for a short or extended stay. The location was perfect! Just blocks from Pikes Place and in walking distance to the Arena and Space Needle. The view wasn't bad either! I would must assuredly recommend this place to others. I would stay again in a heartbeat.
What a fantastic stay right in downtown Seattle! Location of this spot is perfect and I am so pleased with all amenities Stay Alfred offered. Check in was fun, we turned it into a treasure hunt! We will stay with them again for sure!
