Reviewed yesterday NEW

Chose this hotel because of its proximity to customer meeting, but strongly recommend a return visit. Restaurant and bar is way above what I expect in Courtyards, on par with many full Marriott locations. Views are fantastic, so ask for the lake view. Parking is weird, but I taxi'd, so no problems there.

The hotel is located across a busy multi-lane street from South Lake Union. Restaurants are nearby, and a museum is just across the street. The room we stayed in was basic and rather on the small size. In January 2017 we stayed at the Four Points by Sheraton, just around the corner, and the room was much larger. The price...

This is a very nice property with nice modern tastes and clean lines. There a few common areas that are comfortable and open. The rooms are spacious and have some nice modern amenities. There is paid parking on site as well.

I stayed here for a week on business and was happy with the experience. The staff were very friendly, the room was clean, and the location made it convenient to walk to my office. The proximity to the lake gives also the hotel an atmosphere that is not possible for a hotel further in town and surrounded by other buildings....

The front desk staff were very friendly, helpful and professional. They greeted us by name when we were in the lobby and asked if there was anything they could help us with. The bed was comfortable and the room quiet. The hotel location was convenient to the place we needed to go to. Over all a good experience.

We had a large room with a good view of the lake. Lobby area is large and open. Staff was friendly and helpful. Location is very convenient, we were able to walk or take an uber everywhere we wanted to go.

If you are okay with having a broken knob on the bathroom door, a broken faucet in the bathtub, and a HVAC (heater) unit that makes a loud annoying noise every time it goes off, then this is the place for you. I guess I kind of expect too much from the "average" hotels. You may want to stay away...

The hotel is located on Lake Union. Many rooms have pretty views of the lake. It's centrally located in the city. This is a decent hotel with decent beds and roominess. It's extremely well priced except for parking which is a very serious and unexpected rip off. Apparently, what the hotel can't make from its rooms it takes out of...
