The Good Points. The hotel is fresh and bright and new. The rooms are well appointed. There is a kitchenette which is extremely well equipped with a cook top, a coffee maker, a large microwave and a massive fridge. There is an array of crockery, cultery and cooking utensils. The breakfast is plentiful with lots of variety. A complimentary tasty light meal and drinks are served on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. The location is ideal. We walked to the Space Needle and Chihuly Gardens. We also walked to Pike Market, it was a hike but not too arduous. If you do not like walking the South Union Streetcar is only a block away on Westlake. The staff we encountered were pleasant and welcoming.
The Not So Good Points. The sound proofing in the rooms is not so good. We could hear the shower and toilet from adjoining or higher rooms. We also considered the Parking Fee outrageous - $35 plus $7.91 tax per night - $42.91USD per night ($57AUD). This was annoying as I phoned IHG at the time of booking (before the hotel was open) and was informed that the Parking Fee would be $25USD per night. But the Parking Garage is very secure and is locked.More
