              Classical hotel, excellent facilities. Friendly and helpfull staff. In the business center of Seattle, close to the Pike district and the waterfront/wharfs

              The sense of relaxation and profrssionalism of the staff.

              I think there could have been a nicer mattress on the bed!

              Everything . This is a lovely hotel ... all the staff are helpful , friendly and really made our stay at the hotel so enjoyable.

              There was nothing we did not like.

            • Single
              8.2

              The staff was very helpful and friendly. The room was clean.

              Both TV's had bad reception. The one in the bedroom was not the kind of quality tv I'd expect in a five-star hotel. The tv in the sitting room had sporatic reception on the one sports channel I wanted to watch.

            • Older travelers
              7.0

              Location, luxury

              No coffee maker in room, maid service too aggressive, prepayment of room without refund. We travel to Seattle quite a bit, next time we will stay at the Hilton downtown as they have coffee in rooms and don't require prepayment without refund.

            • Older travelers
              8.8

              Absolutely beautiful. Real old-line luxury in the heart of Seattle.

              Expensive! Very few amenities (Coffee, continental breakfast, etc) for the price.

              Beautiful old building, good service from staff.

              beds could be more comfortable and the bathroom was quite tired looking

              Cleanliness, attention by staff,

              Bathrooms should be updated.

              Concierge and reception staff were excellent. Very quiet and well appointed rooms.

              Bathtub too small. Was disappointed that no mention was made when booking that there was no parking at the hotel and parking would be an extra cost.

              It was very comfortable and so convenient to downtown. Easy to walk anywhere in the downtown area.
