Don't Trust Them: Reservations Mean Nothing

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 22, 2011

I had stayed there many times -- many weeks -- in the past. This week I showed up, and they said they were "overbooked." They kicked me to the curb, in Seattle, in July, when every hotel in the city was booked.
Don't trust them.
In addition, their attitude was impersonal and insulting. Even the next day, on the phone, they did not care if I had been refused my reservation. They had their full hotel.
If you actually need a room, they will obviously give it out to the first people who arrive, with or without a reservation.

Unique Quality: The only outstanding quality of this place is how much they do not care about even their loyal customers.

Old School Ambiance in good neighborhood

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 9, 2007

Service was great. There's no elevator, but the bellman will take your luggage up if you need him to. They have really nice amenities, but if you want to come out with any money in your bank account, stay away from the provided in-room snacks and beverages. The bathtubs are nice and big. The hardwood floors and oriental rugs give the rooms a more upscale, classy feel.
The hotel is in the Queen Anne section of town, which is near the Seattle center and away from the hustle bustle of downtown. If you want to get downtown, the Monorail is a 7 minute walk.

Unique Quality: This hotel is very unique in that a) it's old, but in a good way b) the rooms are classy, elegant and huge c) I don't know how to put this any other way except every time we walked down the hall we expected to see the twins from "The Shining." So, there's the thrill of not knowing whether or not it's haunted. There's a view of the space needle from every room, which does not let you forget you're in Seattle. If you want a spectacular Latte and Cappucino, try the adjoining Cafe Lladro or hip Cafe Zingaro one block down Mercer Street.

Directions: Queen Anne district

Gouging rip off

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 19, 2005

My wife and I thought this would be a nice charming hotel with a lot of character, but were extremely disappointed when we arrived.

The room was dumpy, noisy and literally had a haze of smoke in it. We could barely even breathe in this room. When we asked downstairs for a different, preferrably non-smoking room, we were told there were none available. While we discussed our options, we watched the clerk actually check in three other guests. I asked if they were given non-smoking rooms, and the answer was yes. Apparently we could not have one of those rooms, even though we arrived first, since we booked through Orbitz.

Also, since we booked through Orbitz, they would not discount or refund our charges. Ultimately, we found a different hotel and ended up paying for a room where we could not and did not stay.

This place is a gouging rip off!!! It does not have any 'old world charm' . It is simply an old run-down apartment building with bad plumbing. I wish I would have checked the reviews more carefully before booking.

Unique Quality: Overly rude staff. Dirty, smelly and noisy room.

An excellent hotel. A good coffee shop next door and Peso's Taco lounge across the road.

We made good use of the free courtesy bus.

Very friendly staff.

Unique Quality: Within walking distance to the Seattle Center, home of the Space Needle, the Key Arena, the Opera House, and the Seattle Repertory Theater.

Directions: Located in the lower Queen Anne area.
