Very nice hotel. Close to downtown sights.

Posted 23-Sep-2016
Pros: Very good location. One block from the train that we took from the airport. Beautiful room.
Cons: If our room had been ready when we arrived it would have been nice. We were offered an upgrade at our cost. A free upgrade would be better.
Location: The hotel is within easy walking distance of Pike Market, the train to Safeco Field and shopping.
This is a very lovely hotel. The room was beautiful. Very roomy and comfortable. The linens on the bed are very nice. Wifi in the room and easy log in in great. The only negative was that we arrived at 11:00 a.m. And couldn't get into our room until after 3:30 p.m. Reception does have an efficient texting system of letting you know when your room is ready, though.

Great Hotel, close to everything

Posted 08-Sep-2016
This is a beautiful hotel and is withing walking distance to the Pikes Market Place and the seashore. The tram is within walking distance that will get you to the Space Needle and the other main tourist sites. There are lots of places to eat within walking distance if you don't want to eat in the hotel.

Very nice old hotel in a great location.

Posted 07-Sep-2016
Pros: Location and great Expedia rate.
Cons: Why can I get free high speed WiFi in any cheap Motel 6 or BurgerKing or Starbucks.... And a high class like this wants a hefty fee everyday? Get real
Location: Near multiple cafes, pubs and restaurants. Walk to Pike Market, museums, monorail, shopping centers. Nice clean area.
Easy check in. Excellent staff. Close to everything downtown.

高級はわりに無料サービスが少ない

Posted 06-Sep-2016
Pros: 従業員がみんなフレンドリー
Cons: 無料WIFIと一日に水1本無料
水やWIFIくらいは無料であってほしかった。ウエィクアップコールは機械でいいと思う。目ざまし時計があれっというほど安物

Close to resturants and cafes .

Posted 06-Sep-2016
Comparing to the name of the hotel the signuture room is small and the natural light is not enough for reading because of the tiny windows which you cannot open except for few inches . In terms of furniture , the sofa , desk and tv and the chair are magestic , the bathroom is very small and towels are not of a good quality . The hotel in general is quiet and has a number of elevators .

Beautiful weekend stay!

Stayed here for a wedding and had the most amazing experience. The staff is very attentive and the rooms (recently renovated) could not be more beautiful. Will definitely be back!

one can't help but draw comparisons

Posted 28-Aug-2016
Pros: spacious rooms
Cons: air conditioning, more powerful showers - they seem to have prostatism
Location: pike market is interesting, the walk to the space needle is enjoyable, use the observatory tower as views are superb and there is no queue
we have been to Fairmont SF for the last few years and were impressed so we thought we would use the same brand in Seattle. sadly whilst the hotel is undoubtedly impressive we were dissapointed. perhaps because when we arrived we, as a family of 6, had not been allocated adjoining rooms despite ringing in advance and making such a request. the receptionist was abrupt and explained that because we had used Expedia, this, in some way without expanding disadvantaged us. Thankfully the duty reception manager stepped in and allocated us adjoining rooms. Overall, very clean rooms, plenty of space, no view, weak showers, good gym machines, excellent beds, very quiet, noisy air conditioning which required us to batter the machine repeatedly. Stayed in worse, stayed in better. the stay was spoiled at the outset by the receptionist - such a shame
