Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Seattle - City Center
I think there is a newer part (the one shown in all the pictures) and an older part (the one I got). It was very clean, especially considering how dated it was. Dark and long narrow hallways. As a mom traveling alone with two young children, I was a little nervous. It’s location near the space needle is nice but it’s surrounded by an alley and some construction. Also the tiny pool had a bunch of windows facing the little street blocked on one side by construction. I didn’t like the thought of random people along this dark backstreet watching my kids swim. We actually didn’t go because of this. The man at the front desk was rude too. He yelled at my kid, disciplining him right in front of me (for leaning on the counter???), before even greeting me. He can’t have children of his own- no parent would ever waste breath over that. Didn’t give me any helpful info either, maybe a little less condescending attitude and a bit more customer service would be nice. I’m pretty annoyed at how different the pictures were from the actual facilities.

Space Needle View at the Express
Check in was very easy and he was very friendly and customer oriented. The room was spacious and had everything including microwave and fridge (many similar properties lack these two important amenities.

Under your own risk...
The hotel room looked tired (worn). The matress? terrible. Pillows? terrible. There's a construction site close by and the sound of the construction trucks at 5:00 a.m. is not welcome at all!! I wish I chose another hotel instead. We were arriving from a long flight and not only we couldn't recover strength at all, but we ended up more tired. Very friendly staff though...

Will stay again
We have previously stayed at this hotel and chose to stay here again for New Year's Eve. The hotel was full and parking was limited, but staff ensured we had help finding a place to park. Secure, underground parking was a bonus. Despite a full house we were not bothered by excessive noise coming from other rooms. The rooms were comfortable and very clean; the beds/bedding were wonderful. Our family used the pool which was also clean and well kept. The hotel is within walking distance of many restaurants and fun things to do. We will stay here again.

Our phone in the room had several buttons missing (very weird) and at 2:00am the TV mysteriously turned on but no channel. Couldn’t turn off and had to cover with a blanket. Brought it to the attention of the front desk and they didn’t seem to care
