Everything we expected and more!
From the moment I had considered Hotel Five, I knew I wouldn't be disappointed. Being an avid baseball fan I wanted to see multiple Mariners games, which meant I had to find a reasonably priced, well located hotel.
I had a few questions regarding the location and how to get to the stadium and the staff was very prompt in replying to any email. And gave great information for alternative transportation. Also, being that one of the games was an afternoon game, we would be arriving in Seattle earlier than the standard Check-in time (4:00pm) I had requested an early Check-in and the staff assured me that even if they did not have a room available by the time we got there, they would secure our bags and let us park the car. (it is very expensive to park close to the stadiums on game days) Once we arrived at 11:00am, they did have a room ready for us and we were able to get right in and have a quick peek around the quaint, yet cozy room. My son and I, who is 9, shared a queen size bed and with the European Duvets, this works quite well as he kicks and is a blanket hog :) Our room was located on the second floor of the 5th Avenue side and there were a lot of previous negative comments regarding the noise coming from the street. Being that is a downtown hotel in a major city, I didn't find it overly loud and even slept with the window open one night of the two we stayed there.
Great hotel! I will be coming back to Hotel Five.
PS. The cupcakes and Pineapple water is amazing!
