Great Location for Museums and Exploring

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 5, 2014

Picked the Best Western Plus Executive Inn because of its proximity to the Space Needle and Seattle Center, and that the QuickCoach shuttle from Vancouver Airport stops across the street. It was an excellent choice - so many of the things we wanted to do were a short walk away, and then there was the Monorail to the Westlake Centre Mall, just a few blocks away from the Pike Market.
So, the location was excellent. We were very pleased with the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. The room was great - had a fridge and microwave, as well as the coffee maker. It was big enough for the two of us, plus all our bags. Clean and comfortable.
Breakfast was not included, but there was a wonderful choice for a reasonable $8, at a self-service hot and cold buffet. Was very pleased with the choices.

Unique Quality: The location to me is the most outstanding feature - easy to walk over to the monorail at Seattle Center, and then catch the airport train at the Westlake Center station.

Directions: 2 blocks away from Seattle Center

No frills, not bad

This hotel is nothing special but it is not bad either.
The location is ideal in terms of getting to the monorail to take you downtown or the space needle.
The rooms are clean with a great big fridge to store your beers etc in.
The lobby is inviting with free coffee.
It is in a bit of a weird area, right next to a major road.

As I say nothing special but good if you are looking for a no frills decent hotel.

The best western executive inn, what can i say?? we arrived at 1pm and instead of giving us the right check in time(4 pm) a lady receptionist told us to come back in an hour. When we came back an hour later another receptionist was working (Chris) and told us check in time was a t 4pm. Not very organized at all. Finally when we came back after 4pm and got to our room, we realized that they gave us one king size bed instead of two queen size beds that i had requested. The employee gave no apology and just hastily changed our rooms. He gave little information when we asked about tourist sites and restaurants. He only mentioned a place nearby to eat which p.s. was the five points, a greasy and dodgy place to eat. Not a nice experience whatsoever and i don't recommend it at all. Thanks Chris!!!!

Good Hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 11, 2010

This is a good hotel that is actually much nicer than it at first might seem due to the "dated" appearance. Clean and apparently well-run, the rooms are nice, the beds comfortable, and the full breakfast excellent.

Best of all, it has an excellent good location. It is right next to the Seattle Center, great for visiting both that key site of Seattle - with the Space Needle - and downtown, since the monorail at the Seattle Center takes you right to downtown. Because it is not in downtown, though, parking and driving to and from this hotel are relatively easy and straightforward. Seattle is rightly notorious for its horrendous traffic and downtown can be really bad, especially near the waterfront and Pike Place Market. This area near the Seattle Center, though, is pretty easy to deal with. As a result, this is a convenient hotel to stay at while easily and leisurely seeing the two key parts of Seattle - Seattle Centre and downtown.

Be careful about the height limit for cars in the basement parking, though, since part of it actually gets significantly lower than the entrance first seems to indicate.

Unique Quality: Really great, convenient location for seeing the key parts of Seattle (see my description above).

Directions: It's about 1 block east of Seattle Center at the corner of Taylor Ave. N and John St. From Denny Way, go north on Taylor.

Best Western Executive Inn is old and definetely needs to be refurbished. The room is clean though.

No porter to help you with your bags.

Unique Quality: The complimentary continental breakfast, free internet and it being a block away from the Space Needle, the odd-looking Experience Music Project, Monorail and the Pacific Science Center more than make up for the old look.

Stayed here in April 2006, incredible view of the Space Needle from my room. Refrigerator in room, mattresses incredibly comfortable. Two blocks from the Seattle Center. Will definitely stay here again.

Unique Quality: Complimentary shuttle to downtown locations, great unexpected service.

Directions: two blocks east of the Seattle Center

This hotel has a great location but nothing more to recommend it. Nothing particularly wrong, just older and not in the best neighborhood. However, it's a couple of blocks walk to the Seattle Center.

Space Needle in Seattle Center

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 22, 2003

Since I was here for training, I got a special government rate, which in 1994 was:
$79.00+15.2% tax = $91.01 x 11 nights

These were 2003 rates:

Season Rate - 1 Person

11/1/03 - 3/31/03 $85 - 109
4/1/03 - 6/30/03 & 10/1/03 - 10/31/03
$94 - 119
7/1/03 - 9/30/03 $111 - 142

Unique Quality: A good hotel for me is one that has (in addition to comfortable beds):
a) free local calls and lets me go online from my room for free
b) a pool
c) a nice free breakfast
d) some cable TV other than HBO.

I picked this hotel because I had to have transportation to where I was having my training, and also I wanted transportation to downtown Seattle.

From their webpage:

"From the lobby, guests can watch the elevators rise to the top of the Seattle Center's world famous Space Needle.

"Just a short walk brings one to the Seattle Monorail which runs between the Seattle Center and Westlake Center, located in the heart of downtown shopping"

One afternoon I did take the monorail into town to do some shopping.

"Guest room amenities include in-room coffee maker and coffee, 25" color television, voice mail messaging, data ports, irons and ironing boards, hairdryers, modem jacks and some rooms have dual phone lines.
Morning newspaper
Free local phone calls
Free local and incoming facsimiles
Total Guest Rooms: 123
Kids Stay Free! (Children under 17 stay free with accompanying adult)

Complimentary coffee, voice mail and computer modem port
Internet Kiosk in lobby (US$3.00 for 15 minutes - Subject to change)

Parking is available free of charge."

They didn't have an internet kiosk then, and the children staying free, the complimentary coffee, and the free parking wasn't important to me, but the free local calls WAS important. The only other thing I would have asked for would have been a pool and breakfast.

I took a number of pictures of the Seattle skyline from my room.

Directions: The Best Western Executive Inn is located at the edge of the downtown business district, adjacent to the Seattle Center.
