Clean, new, and stylish. Hotel Eastlund is close to the main train lines, which makes it convenient for traveling into downtown. The valet parking was easy, and the hotel staff were very helpful. The rooms are newly renovated, and the decor is stylish, fun and sophisticated! The bed was exceptionally comfortable, the room was quiet, and we slept very well. I would definitely stay there again and would recommend to my friends/family.
The only thing we missed about the hotel was experiencing the rooftop garden restaurant. We wanted to see it, because it looked fun, but the restaurant didn't open until after we needed to head into town for our event and it was closing by the time we could make it back to the hotel (due to limited trains). It would have be nice if it was open past midnight on weekend nights so we could enjoy a dessert/beverages when we returned after our event.
Impressed with the cleanliness, comfort and standard of the room. Breakfast provided was basic. Don't expect an early check-in - we arrived at noon, and were told check-in started at 4pm. So they stored our bags in the office and we had to go elsewhere and come back at 4pm to get into our room. At least they were friendly and helpful, but it would've been nice to be able to relax and freshen up instead. Quiet and convenient location, 5 minute walk to the light rail which takes you into town, a nearby shopping centre, or to the airport. Also very close to the Moda Center (concert and sports arena) and convention centre.
For the revues it got, at $200.00 a night, it seemed like the best deal, considering some of the other hotel prices. All in all, it was a good experince, but there were some small inconveniences. Most places that charge that much usally supply two or three bottles of water, free. Not here. Parking is $19.00 a day if you park it yourself. WOW! The 7th floor soda machine was out of Diet and I had to make a trip to the lobby. Washers and dryers only take quarters and there are no change machines. I had to go to the lobby. Also, no mints on the pillows.
this is the second time we have stayed her. It has a free breakfast and a small swimming pool, both sellers for our grandson. There is a $10 fee to park, which ai do not remember from before. Still, less than the downtown hotels.
The building is a little old but the mattress was perfect for my back and the pillows and linens seemed new. Loud partying at a club across the street but when I shut the door I never heard a sound. Within 1 block of a quick place for coffee and a muffin and just 3 blocks from an awesome breakfast place (J and M) with endless good coffee. Has plenty of parking and the staff was willing to let my son's girlfriend leave her car in the lot and issued us a voucher so it wouldn't get towed. Designated smoking area that had tables with umbrellas, a privacy fence and some landscaping with a Japanese maple. Overall a positive experience.
Very nice lobby area and impressive glass elevators. However, none of them went to our floor, so we never used them. Also, only 1 of the 2 elevators we used were in operation. This sometimes made our wait rather long for a low rise hotel.
Rooms were clean, albeit a little too small. I hope there are plans to renovate the rooms as they're beginning to show their age.
There was never a replacement soap for the shower for our 3 night stay. We had to use the soap from the basin to supplement our last shower. Toilet paper was also running low on the last day. These things should never happen in any hotel regardless of price.
The room was adequate....recently painted and clean but accommodations were very dated and bed linens were very well used, including thin towels, and hard flat pillows. You paid for the close proximity to downtown and convention center. I would suggest this place for a one night stay, but not for long term if you want comforts. Great little café across the street for good coffee and breakfast.
