Great place to be within walking distance to Space Needle. We stayed in a two room suite. Pull out couch worked well enough for the girls. Front desk was always so pleasant. Breakfast was plentiful. Within walking distance to Space Needle and Chihuly Glass both amazing don't miss sights to see in Seattle. Ate across the street at Duke's Chowder...

We arrived a little early and staff was happy to store your bags until our room was ready. You can find many places to eat within a 5 minute walk. When it came to check in some confusion on the rooms happened but ended up getting what I had originally reserved through Marriott.com. This was a 2 bedroom suite with...

We brought my elderly mother-in-law to Seattle for the weekend. The hotel was perfect for our weekend events. We were able to pull right up to the front door to unload. The room was absolutely perfect. It was big & clean. We had a 2 bedroom unit which was perfect for privacy yet allowed us to be nearby. The bed...

I am partial to suite hotels. There are about five suite hotels in Downtown Seattle. The Residence Inn suites almost all have balconies and kitchens.The hotel has a very nice indoor pool and for families with young children there's a activity center. Housekeeping has been excellent. Right outside the hotel is a streetcar line that will take you down to...

4 of us stayed in a 2 bedroom suite from 5/11/17 to 5/16/17. The staff was awesome, everything was spotless and the rooms perfect. Loved "The Market" as we got in late and loved that we could get a bottle of wine. The only reason I don't give 5 stars is the dining or lack there of. Very surprising that...

We stayed 2 nights with our 2 children. We are Marriott members and usually prefer to stay at Residence Inns when we travel as a family. This one did not disappoint. It had the same usual Marriott standards. Room was nice, spacious and had a nice view of Lake Union. The location of the hotel is wonderful. Across the street...

We had the opportunity to stay at the hotel, we called to see if we could get an early check in and we spoke to Ernest who was working the front desk and he went out of his way to get us in to a room early. Ernest was great from the get go and continued to provide excellent service....

Excellent hotel. Very clean and tidy and with a great deal of open space, both in the lobby and in the rooms. Very friendly and approachable staff. Great location for driving or access to excellent restaurants.

Our first trip back to Seattle in 30 years! Decided to stay at the Lake Union hotel rather than down town because of it's a Residence Inn (suite and kitchen). Initially concerned about Location, but location is close to all the attractions, Space Needle, Pike Street Market... Better yet Lake Union is a lot better looking than the waterfront Seattle...

Love the Marriott Properties, shocked this is a Marriott. Beautiful views from balcony but most undesirable customer service. Usually find staff to go above and beyond minimal effort here from billing housekeeping and friendliness
