I travel to Seattle on a regular basis. One of my clients there is the 5th Avenue Theatre where I am the publicity and production photographer. The WAC (Washington Athletic Club) is on the same block as the 5th so it's very convenient.
But beyond that convenience the hotel and STAFF are remarkable. The WAC has the most comfortable rooms, their beds are like sleeping on a cloud and the shower fixtures are to die for. But it's really the staff that makes this establishment head and shoulders above others.
From the bell man to the desk clerk to the concierge to the restaurant folks they are all excellent. I've been staying there for five years now on a monthly basis. Once when I was in the elevator a gentleman was in with me so I began a short conversation about how wonderful the hotel is in its service. He listened quietly and when he got off at his floor he said "Thanks so much for telling me about specifics, I'm the General Manager of the WAC." I was thrilled to unknowingly give him a face to face review of his job so well done.
Far and away the WAC is my all time favorite hotel for business. I highly recommend this establishment.More
