Motif seattle has the best location. Close to everything! The bar/lounge on the rooftop was a great place to hangout.

Our Go~To favorite Hotel!

Posted 18-Sep-2017
Pros: The location is perfect for walking to Pike's Market or an evening stroll to the Metropolitan Steak House.
Cons: My only issue was we booked a king and got queen beds but that is really not a big issue. We were promised rooms with views and we had a lovely view.
Location: Duck Tour & Pikes are all in walking distance. Some went to the movies & at night there was a whiskey bar for some and a pub for the others. Perfect!
We had a group of family and friends in town for fun and a cruise. We wanted a hotel that would cover everyone's needs from 25 year old to 75 year old. Well the Motif exceeded our expectations. We even had a couple of honeymooners with us. We were a crazy fun group and the hotel was perfect for us all.

Don't check in early

Posted 14-Sep-2017
I live in Chicago and was in Seattle for work. With the time change I arrived at 10:30. I had quite a bit of luggage with me. A room was available but I was then charged 50$ for early check in. Ridiculous considering I checked out by 7:30 am two days later. Room service foot was cold and I was charged 15$ a day for having coffee and water in my room.

Excellent location!

Posted 14-Sep-2017
Pros: location, welcoming glass of wine, friendly staff.
Cons: no "amenities" fee, fix sliding doors
The Motif is located close to the light rail train station from airport and monorail to Space needle and Chihuly Museum and Garden. It is also gives easy access to large retail stores, such as Nordstrom, Barneys, Macy's etc. The Art Gallery is within walking distance, as is the Pike Market area. The hotel itself welcomes you with a glass a wine which is a nice touch. It is a vibrant and busy lobby and staff are personable and willing to assist when necessary. On the down side, there is a mandatory "amenities"fee and we were told it was levied because we had booked through Expedia so perhaps if you book through hotel website you would not be charged this fee. The "amenities" included all the water and coffee you can drink. We were also told wifi was free however this item may also be a part of this fee. When you consider that most hotels offer free coffee and water, as an optional cost, this "amenities" fee seems a dated concept. Whatever the case, it would seem to be more of the hotel attempting to recoup the discount given to the customer through discount bookings. A second minor issue was with the bathroom sliding door. It did not stay closed and while this would not be a problem with a spouse , it does present some awkward moments when travelling with a friend. In closing, I do heartily recommend the Motif Hotel(with a"buyer beware" caveat of additional fees) for its friendly staff and excellent location.

Nice Hotel located in the center of everything

Posted 12-Sep-2017
Pros: Recently updated and clean
Location: Near Pike Street Market and waterfront . Located near the downtown shopping district and financial district. We walked to all sites from this hotel.
We stayed 3 nights at this hotel. The manager and staff were attentive and courteous. Our room was newly updated and very very clean. The hotel is about three and a half blocks from the Pike Street Market and about five blocks from the waterfront. I was impressed by this hotel.

Perfect amount of modern

Posted 11-Sep-2017
Pros: Cool atmosphere and super convenient.
Cons: There is a charge for amenities per night, and this includes a 'complimentary' glass of wine upon checkin. Would have been nice to have this every day
Location: Everything is near by! All of the shopping, tourist attractions. We parked our car and didn't move it until we checked out 3 days later.
Motif is an amazing stay for the price (in comparison to other Seattle hotels). Location was right in the middle of the shopping district and walking distance to all attractions. Loved our stay.

Excellent hotel, right next to top attractions

Posted 09-Sep-2017
Staff was very friendly, check-in was a breeze. Room was spacious, clean, and look like new. The restarurant/bar (Frolik) and its terrace were superb. Market Place was just a couple of blocks away. There's are plenty of restarurants and shopping around. The monorail that takes you to the Space Needle is just one block away. It was a very pleasant stay and I will definitely return to Motif on my next trip to Seattle.
