A very comfortable place to stay within walking distance of all things in downtown Seattle. Walked to the Mariners game one night and to the Seattle Center on another day. Very convenient to many restaurants and all shopping.

The reason we chose this hotel was because of the location. The price is reasonable and location can't be beat. Easy walking distance to Market Place, which also means close to restaurants and shops. Hotel personnel are friendly and willing to help with suggestions of places to see. Nightly FREE wine tasting was a plus. Room is comfortable and big... More

Great location as only staying one night. Clean and tidy, great shower and roof top bar very nice. Efficient check in and check out. Elephant & Castle pub at the front of the hotel was great too - excellent Chicken citrus salad. Did not eat in the hotel.

Don't eat in the restaurant food is over priced and so so. Music is extremely loud definitely not someplace to take the family for a relaxing meal. No available upon arrival to help with luggage had to find a cart.

Greeted with smiles and staff who truly care about you, your family and your experience! Motif is beautiful and located perfectly in the middle of downtown Seattle. Motif saved our vacation, we had to switch hotels due to a previous hotel not meeting our expectations or accommodating our family. Motif took us in right away put us in an incredible... More

By Debbie, June 23 to 26. Good location. Parking fee was way too much, service was great. The room next to me was very noisy due remodeling. Loved the view of the water. Getting out of the parking lot was not fun. Some of the streets were blocked for a costume parade. So forced traffic onto the street we were... More

The hotel is centrally located to everything. Pike Market is within easy walking distance. You could also easily walk to the subway station. You need to know where to look as the subway signs are not very visible. The staff at the hotel were fantastic. They were very pleasant and helpful. The room with the 2 Queen sized beds were...

Great hotel. Supper friendly and helpful staff. They had our room ready even though we got there early. The front desk let me get everything set up for my son's coming in later in the week so they could just get their key and go to their room. Exceptional staff.
