One of the best hotels in Bellevue as always. Close to shopping, good stop if you are stopping near seattle and don't want to stay in Seattle. Bellevue feels a lot safer than in Seattle.
Right next to the Bellevue Square Mall, park in the underground parking (pricing is steep during the week, free on weekends) and just want over to the Bellevue Square Mall or Lincoln square for shopping/food. If you need groceries, there is a 24hr QFC store within 5 minutes walking distance
We didn't like the first room we were given, because of noise, and the staff took us to another room to approve it before changing to that room. All the staff we encountered were very nice and helpful. The rooms were clean, updated, comfortable, and quiet.
We stayed at the Red Lion Bellevue instead of staying in Seattle during a busy, expensive weekend. It's super close to the highway and easy to get to, both by driving and by cab. Staff was quite flexible with some changes to our reservation, and the rooms were incredibly comfortable - I've had more issues with beds/pillows in higher starred hotels, but I slept like a baby at the Red Lion.
Pretty topical hot breakfast, but the main item actually changed every day - which was very nice.
Also, hotel is in a pretty good location - close to the freeway.
Rooms are a tad small, and the hallways could use similar updating as the rooms seem to have received.
Short freeway ride to Downtown Bellevue which is large beautiful with good restaurant options. Would definitely prefer Larkspur to other "extended stay" chains--decor is a notch better (think Courtyard), but the consistently friendly staff is what seals the deal for us.
Overall a very nice hotel......
Great location for going anywhere in Seattle, Renton, Bellvue area.... I traveled with my dog, a 30 lb Pug. The hotel is very Pet Friendly and there is a large park about a block away for walks etc.
The tried to be more than helpful and I would return to this hotel in the future ...
Seattle’s Eastside is one of America’s most affluent areas. Multimillion-dollar estates on Lake Washington are home to a few billionaires, including Bill Gates. With its concentration of finance and tech firms, downtown Bellevue's skyline rivals that of Seattle. The Eastside has several corporate headquarters, Microsoft, Nintendo of America, and Eddie Bauer.
