Great facility, all suites, nice breakfast, too. This residence inn is situated at the south end of lake union and across the street from several great restaurants. In addition, it is a 10 min walk to the MOHAI (museum of history and industry) which is phenomenal --as well as the Center for Wooden Boats. You can also catch the tram...

I stayed here for a three week work trip in December. The hotel is in a very convenient location with easy access to public transport. There's a bus stop right across the street and the street car / bus stops right at the main entrance of the hotel. It takes about 15 mins by bus to downtown. The rooms are...

Stayed one night for an event with Seattle. Brought our Yorkie and Chihuahua. We had a king suite with a sofa bed and balcony for $119 rate (room 606). The were pleasantly surprised to find the room had a kitchenette (full size fridge, range top, dishwasher, microwave, dishes). The room was quite comfortable. They are in the midst if remodeling...

Stayed here for a week in December. Room was very comfy, clean, and the staff was very friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. We love having a little apartment of our own when we away. Onsite parking was great but a little dear at $25/night-but safe, clean, and secure with two under ground levels. Breakfast every morning was very good w/a full...

This Residence Inn has a lot going for it, a great location (especially if you want to enjoy the South Lake Union district or catch a trolley into downtown, but don't necessarily want to stay downtown), the staff are very friendly, there are large rooms, my bed was comfortable, and a great breakfast buffet in the morning. However, a couple...

Stayed here for 3 nights last week and found it better than hoped for. the main attraction to picking this hotel was that it was the only place we could find that had 2 bedroom room 2 bath suites at a reasonable price. The room was perfect for traveling with family. The furniture was a bit outdated but everything else...

I stayed at this location ten years ago and enjoyed my stay. I just checked out after a three day stay over Thanksgiving and couldn't have been more disappointed. The furniture was shabby, as if a dozen cats had been using the furniture as a scratching post for a decade. The bed was sagging in the middle and the linens...

I was very pleasantly surprised! Booked a 1 Bedroom Suite, Sofabed, Lake View, Balcony - bedroom & suite look out to city view including the Space Needle! Georgous w/ lights on at night, early morning is another beautiful perspective. The free breakfast was far better than expected. Wide variety of choices! & the coffee is good.

We stayed at this hotel beause we were going to a show at WaMu theatre and didn't want to drive all the way home afterwards since it would be late. This hotel is so big but it was fairly easy to navigate and I loved the rooms. I think we got upgraded to a suite because there were two rooms,...

I booked this hotel because I was traveling with a friend, and with an 8 night stay, we wanted to be together in the same room but also wanted to enjoy some privacy as well. The Residence offered 2 bedrooms and 2 separate baths, plus a full kitchen and living area. It was like our own little villa. The bonuses...
