Very good. I go to Seattle's University of Washington Liver Transplant Clinic every year for an annual check up. I stay at the Nexus Hotel because it is convenient, close to UW Med Center, and has a reliable shuttle to the medical center if I don't feel up to driving. I know many of the employees and it is good hotel, with a fine staff, an a very good breakfast. Nexus Hotel also offers a discount rate for patients who are there for hospital appointments. Unfortunately, I forgot about the discount rate because I did not make my own appointment, and I fail to mention it to Expedia when I went through them to make the arrangements for my stay. I hope Expedia reads this survey and will in future include a question about the reason for the a trip so the customer can get the unadvertised benefits offered by the service they are requesting Expedia to book. My annual exam turned out very good, so I can't complain. However, many very ill UW Patients stay at the Nexus, so Expedia should be aware of this rate discount.
we found this hotel on expedia and it was exactly how it was described. we had to come to seattle on a family emergency and the first night stayed at red lion in Bellevue which we also found on expedia. the beds were a lot more comfortable than the one at the red lion and they actually had a nice breakfast in the lobby that we didn't have to pay for like the red lion. we will definitely stay at this Travelodge again.
Beds were standard fare, TV was an old CRT with basic cable which was expected. Came with a small refrigerator/freezer and a microwave, though the place was severely lacking in outlets so the microwave was actually unplugged.
Not overly noisy considering we were next to a fairly major road, and there was a bus line with a straight shot into downtown which was convenient since we did not drive there.
The hotel staff were very helpful
Janelle who worked the morning breakfast was amazing. She was quick and on top of re-stocking the breakfast, cheerful, and helpful. The only downfall was that the hot tub was chilly and no extra towels in the pool
The Northgate Extended Stay America was okay but not great. The room was clean and the staff was friendly and attentive but there were some "downsides." The "grab and go" breakfast ran out of Nature Valley bars and didn't get restocked but the fruit supply and the coffee was good. Seattle has a big homeless problem and we did not realize that some of the homeless were living in RV's parked on the street just outside the hotel. Not a security issue but, because you couldn't see around the RV's when pulling out of the hotel, it made exiting the hotel in the car a little hazardous (a couple of times as I was edging out a car sped around the RV's).
Stretching from Greenlake to Shoreline, North Seattle is home to Northgate Mall, a popular shopping destination with more than 125 stores. The neighborhood of Greenlake is also home to Green Lake, which has a 2.9-mile running/walking path encircling it. The streets along the lake are also home to trendy bars and restaurants. Shoreline is a suburb of Seattle and is mainly residential.
