Prez was very welcoming and helpful. The suite was perfect for my wife and I. Clean is what matters to me more than anything and this was the cleanest place we stayed out of 3 places on this trip. The area is just a normal neighborhood with nothing fancy and nothing run down. If you have ever been to Japan then you will recognize some Japanese inspired homes that are very cool! You can take the light rail into downtown for $4.50 round trip. Walk downhill and leave from Mt Baker then when you come back get off at Beacon Hill and walk downhill again. We walked up hill to Beacon Hill but we are young it wasn't a huge deal. Don't hesitate and book this place with no worries!
