If you need or want to stay south of Seattle the Clarion is a good choice. Great location, convenient to shopping and restaurants. The free breakfast is served in what use to be a former restaurant so it is cozier than the usual tables in the middle of the lobby. Flat screen TVs are a plus also.

I wanted to like this hotel, but can not give it a good/average rating. There are quite a few positives about it, so I'll start with those. The complimentary breakfast is excellent. There are three hot dishes that are rotated during the week, some bread and bagels, cereal, fruit, juices, coffee, tea, make your own waffle station and some pastries.... More
