Reasonably Priced, Older Facilities
LOCATION - in downtown Seattle and within walking distance to Pike's Place. Fairly walkable, but heads up on the uphill streets. Wear comfortable shoes - it can be challenging walking around otherwise.
HOTEL STAFF - courteous and friendly. Checked in and checked out without incident. They even offered locally sourced fuji apples at the front desk.
FACILITIES - there is a small workout room with treadmills available if you want to use it. Nothing too fancy, but if you just want to do something quick indoors, you can. There's also a wine hour at 5pm for hotel guests, so it's a good option if you want to relax for an hour.
ROOM - I imagine it's because the hotel is one of the historically preserved buildings in town, but the hallways seemed narrow and the doors to the hotel rooms seemed rather small. At first, I thought I was given the keycard to a closet door. The light to the room was a very soft yellow and gave the small space a very old-timey vibe. I was a little skeptical at first about how dark it was. The lamps helped brighten up the place, but I've definitely stayed in much brighter hotel rooms. The carpet is a little on the older side so I'd recommend wearing flip flops or shoes walking around just in case, but don't go barefoot. Same for the shower. WiFi is available for free if you need it.
BATHROOM - you had to close the door behind you in order to use the toilet. Very small space. Wear flip flops in the shower, by the way. Could have been cleaner.

Hello and thank you for your candid review. This really helps steer the property in the right direction when we're thinking about improvements. Our building was built in 1929, so you're absolutely right about the building being considered historical. We have to work with the space we have, but we are going to use the space to it's full potential. We have just started a major renovation of the rooms. All of the furniture will be replaced, light bulbs will be changed out, fridge/microwave will be placed in each room in an open California style closet set up, some bathrooms will have the bath taken out and become shower only rooms, new carpeting and trim, and this is only a fraction of what we have started. I'm extremely excited about the direction were going, and this wouldn't be possible without feedback from our guests, We would love to have you back in the future for another chance to WOW you. All the best!
