We stayed here three nights prior to our cruise for our honeymoon. The room were spacious and very clean. Lee, Chelsea, Susan and Max (whoever is there) at the front desk delivered outstanding service throughout the stay. And even after our cruise when we stopped by again for assistance. Theres even complimentary wine served in the lobby in the evening.... More

Dear Guest, The power of your review is something I will share with our entire team. To live up to the expectations of a honeymoon trip is not an easy task for anyone involved, especially the Bride and Groom. To hear that we were able to be a part of that success is truly an honor.

When we arrived we were very happy with the location and then we saw the stairs, this was the only negative about the hotel mostly because my husband and I were traveling with my parents and making it up two flights of stairs was a bit difficult.

Location great. Walking distance to everything we wanted to see. Room great. Staff very helpful. Lee, the lovely lady who first saw us when we booked in couldn't have been more helpful. She gave us lots of information about Seattle and was extremely friendly and helpful. Lee went above and beyond in customer service.

The Inn is a really neat place to stay in! I stayed only one night to be close to the bell harbor conference center. I stayed in the deluxe king junior suite. It was huge! Nice king bed, long couch and huge TV. The room was nicely decorated and made me feel like I was in a swanky hotel room... More

An old college friend and I decided on a whim to visit Seattle as neither of us had ever been there before. We flew into Seattle from California with no hotel reservations, thinking we'd find something once we arrived. We're both impulsive sometimes. Anyway, after spending about an hour outside the airport looking online, I decided to look through Tripadvisor.... More
