Breakfast, location and staff was great. Toilet didn’t flush on first try, had to double flush :(. I would stay again for sure.

Ruined my New Years Eve
I would tell about the room but I don’t know cause I never got up there. We were given passes to use their garage, it was full, they didn’t tell me of other parking and said “I just need to go find it.” And after 20 min There was nothing in the area for more than 10hrs. How do they expect to have any happy customers with a small lot, no overnight parking and not helping the customers that need parking? Will never return

The surrounding block was a little shady but convenient for local attractions. Easy uber or slightly long walk to the waterfront. The staff was friendly and helpful. Compared to other holiday inn express locations, breakfast was sub par-but edible and had options. The eggs were overdone and dry and only had turkey sausage..however, also had oatmeal, cereal, bagels, fruit, etc.

Great value in a modern, clean hotel.
Our go to place for inexpensive, convenient accommodations in Seattle. New, clean building, good service, onsite parking and one of the best continental breakfasts I’ve seen. And they recycle and compost everything they can. It’s about midway between the center of the city and the Seattle Center (space needle , etc.) and walking distance to both unless weather prohibits. Only negative is it is on busy streets and a bit noisy, but that’s probably true of all downtown hotels. And, like everywhere in Seattle, you pay for parking - over $25/night with the stupid tax.

Same ole. With a touch of constant construction!
It’s true that you can’t beat a $100 night in downtown Seattle in a good area. Unfortunately, I think this hotel showed it. I skipped my last choice because I thought the pics looked better on your page. Oh man! Now I want to visit again, just so I can focus on neighborhoods and local entertainment. First of all - the vending machines only take a CC (no bills or cash) and conveniently charged your card a $6 fee - until one day, I got my fee “alert” and not one drink came down. So the best part of this hotel is the breakfast. Usually a free breakfast but this is was incredible!
