I was lucky enough to book a room at Motif during a sale the property was offering. For an amazing price I got a well-appointed room on a high floor. I arrived at the hotel before 9 a.m. expecting to store my luggage and return later to check in, but my room was already available. I was pleasantly surprised to... More

We were seeing a music act at the nearby Triple Door, and didn't want to have to drive home late that night. Staying at the Motif met our needs perfectly and we highly recommend it: comfortable, quiet rooms, helpful staff, and wine tasting to welcome us!

Stayed here over Thanksgiving weekend. It was awesome. The hotel is so close to downtown shopping and the tree lighting. The roads are closed in front of the hotel on Sunday of Thanksgiving due to the marathon which is run every year. But our room was perfect, the staff fabulous, the free wine tasting at night was an unexpected benefit.... More

Its a 5 mins walk to the Seattle Public Market Centre, and closer to the main shopping, and the monorail which takes you to the Space Needle. First the Concierge, then Reception, were... More

The cleanliness and the location are probably the best things about this hotel. The service would have been great if not the check-in lady who was absolutely rude and unprofessional. Also, we did not find the pillows to be very comfortable. They were too small and puffy to our liking.

the Seattle Motif is a very nice hotel and its location on 5th avenue makes it close to many venues. The staff is friendly and the rooms clean. The price is affordable and Frolik is a nice place for dining or for cocktails. For a little more we upgraded for a top floor view of the water.

Excellent location to theaters, shopping and restaurants. Convenient off street parking at a reasonable rate for guests. Couldn't ask for a better place to stay in Downtown Seattle. Also walking distance from ferry's if coming from Olympic Peninsula.
