Residence Inn is always solid. The staff at this one is friendly, especially in the new Tap Room. Breakfast in the morning is good, with lots of choices, even if they are a little slow getting restocked. This is one of the first places I'd recommend against getting the view room. The loading dock is in the front of the...

Location, convenience, comfortable, welcoming....all these things describe the Residence Inn across from Lake Union in Seattle WA. From the time you step into the lobby until you're ready to leave, it's like family greeting you and then bidding you farewell. Whenever we go from Connecticut to visit family, mostly our son and granddaughter, this is where we stay. The hotel...

The new lobby is beautiful. Our rooms looked out over the lake. We walked to some of the Seattle sights we visited, others we easily caught the trolley downtown. When looking at a map, you might think this hotel is too far away from the sights, but trust me, it's very convenient.

We selected this hotel since our large family could fit into their two-bedroom suites, and it is not far from Pier 66 where our cruise ship was to dock. (We had hoped maybe we could walk from the hotel to the pier, but decided it was too far when carrying our heavy luggage.) We stayed one night before our cruise...

If traveling with older children, this is the place to stay . Big rooms they get there own bed. You can close the door to your room. There is room to hang out and more than one tv. If your are a jw. Marriott person you will turn your nose up. But for a dad, the peace and quite in...

My husband and I and my two adult children stay here in a two bedroom suite for three nights prior to our Alasakan cruise. I love the location, just across the street from the Wooden Boat Museum on Lake Union and a short bus ride or a nice long walk to downtown. The area is safe and very clean. Summer...

Recently stayed at this Residence Inn at the end of April. I booked a 2 bedroom suite with two bathrooms. The room was fantastic and very clean. It even included a small balcony and small kitchen area including a dishwasher. The hot free breakfast was also a nice benefit and provided a great start to our day. The hotel is...

We stayed there recently on a trip to Seattle. The atrium and common areas were updated, looked much brighter. The rooms were clean and well stocked, everything worked. The breakfast was good, something for everyone. The pool was great, heated and clean. Watch out on the poolside tiled surround, its slippery, but manageable. People that work there again went out...

This hotel is walking distance to Lake Union, there are three restaurants across the street, and a short drive to many other key spots in Seattle. Easy to access from the freeway but, you have to pay $25 a day for parking. Rooms are large with balconies. The hotel serves great daily breakfast and some nights a light dinner which...
