Across the street from the piers & Elliott Bay

Relatively new / modern Marriott, if the touristy waterfront is your preferred location, and the Edgewater is either too expensive or just not your cup of tea, this is a good choice.

I prefer either the Westin or my favorite, the Edgewater, but I went in and checked this place out & talked to the staff.
It's a decent hotel, and again, it's all about "marriott-style" amenities & the waterfront location.

Even with AAA or other special / corp rates you're still going to pay ~$200+/night, but Seattle waterfront hotel rooms are never cheap.

Unique Quality: As it is a Marriott, it is like all other Marriotts, Hiltons, Hyatts, full service hotels.

Two distinctions of this hotel are:
the waterfront location; and the outside elevator on the south side that will take you from waterfront level and deposit you some 30 ft straight up at downtown street level, saving you a hefty climb if you were planning on walking up from the waterfront to downtown for some sightseeing.

Directions: On the east side of Alaskan Way on the waterfront. It is a huge Marriott, you can't miss it.

Expensive!! -- Only on an Expense Account

Beautiful, excutive-style hotel on Seattle's Waterfront. Expensive. $212 (with tax) a night (and that was Boeing's "special rate") in Sept 2004 for 3 nights. Breakfast was not included in the rate (which surprised my Australian and German friends). I did not eat any meals in the hotel restaurant, it looked ok, but again, expensive.

Front desk staff was business-like, if not a little daft. They were not very acquainted with the grayline shuttle service that is one of the only forms of public transportation that service this hotel other than taxis. For a hotel of this size and at this price level, I expected more "service". On the other hand, I asked the concierge where there was a store nearby that I could buy an eyelash curler. She offered me hers to borrow -- nice, but Yuck!

My room was gorgeous with a private balcony overlooking Elliott Bay. The room was very large and the bed very comfortable. The bathroom was not huge, but had a lot of counter space -- which I like to have when traveling.

Drinks at the hotel bar were also expensive. But you are a captive audience as there are very, very few places near by to have a drink. That said, they had an excellent wine list, many of which were available by the glass. And the pours were generous.

Even on an expense account, it's an awfully expensive place to stay. Getting to and from the place is expensive too. And it's not really convenient to anything other than the convention center and the cruise ship terminal. As beautiful as it is, I can't recommend. For the same money or less, the Westin, just one example, is more centrally located. The "waterfront" location isn't worth the expense, in my opinion.

Unique Quality: Fitness center & indoor/outdoor pool; Restaurant; Bar

Across the street from the Int'l Cruise ship terminal.

Also, across the street from a convention center, where my conference was taking place and the ONLY reason I stayed here.

PIcture is the view from my balcony -- nice, but worth over $200 a night? You decide.

Directions: Waterfront

Great views of the Waterfront

Walking through the Seattle Marriot Waterfront's lobby, you know you've stepped into an above-average hotel. Located on Alaskan Way, the building itself is U-shape with right angles, so most rooms have some view of Seattle's famed Waterfront. And from what I can see, most upper rooms had a balcony. Open the sliding doors and you can smell and hear the ocean.

Also, the famed restaurant called the Fish Club is a nice way to start your culinary adventures in Seattle.

Unique Quality: Right next to the hotel is the Seattle International Trade Center where I'm sure a lot of important business is done. There's also a Starbucks inside the Trade Center. Across the street is a place where summer concerts are set up. Also, along Alaskan Way, the Waterfront Trolley trolls along and it's a convenient way for you to get from your hotel to the central part of the Waterfront where you can start your day, but the Trolley does pass through Pioneer Square and ends in the Chinatown Int'l District.

Directions: If driving from SEA-TAC, you would most likely be on Hwy 5. Take the Seneca exit and drive towards the Water until you see Alaskan Way. Turn left. The hotel should be on your right hand side.
