Great for families with children
The front desk staff was extremely helpful, happy to help us navigate to various out of the way sites via mass transit. The room was immaculate and well stocked with everything you'd need in a kitchen. (I would have liked some movies available, or at least some movie channels.) Location was very good, overlooking Lake Union yet close to main attractions. The wide angle lens used to show amenities was misleading, however. For example, the pool was tiny for such a big hotel, and was always jammed with kids. While a free breakfast is nice to have, after a few days you get weary of under ripe cantaloupe, overcooked eggs and watery orange juice. (They did have a waffle maker - which kids love.) The lobby, while built on many levels, is mostly tables and chairs set up for breakfast, making it feel like a big cafeteria. Parents don't have to worry about their kids playing on the furniture, it's all covered in vinyl. This hotel is great for families with children, but mine are grown now. Next time, I'd prefer one more upscale, geared to a more mature clientele.
