We checked in at the Hilton hotel @ Bellvue. Our convention center is just 4 blocks away from the hotel. There's hecka peeople! I'm still in the state of nirvana! Hehe. We finally met up with Tita Alys and the others. We got a grab at FATBURGER. Ewww.. I was not really into burgers recently. But anyway I was hungry so I just closed my eyes and eat …
... to the Columbia Tower to the 74th floor observation deck. The "short walk" we imagined is a collection of steep sidewalks that defy the thigh muscles. Going down to the building was challenging but coming back up to get our car was a bona fide workout! I remembered San Francisco having these types of streets but memory faded of Seattle’s having them. But soon enough we are at the building and I am reminded of the Sears tower which ...
... decompress. That heading straight into work would cause a form of spontaneous combustion. Well, sort of. It was more like a labor strike. But before I get into the chaos of the day, let me ask a question. Have you ever been in a situation where the world you are viewing is in stark contrast to you? I mean you are on your mattress sleeping comfortably well and then realize your mattress is floating in the middle of the lake?
Well we woke ...
... and Dennis gave me the best ride I could have asked for and then some. They took me to lunch and insisted on paying. After hearing my story, Dennis told me "my lad... I like you and what you are doing." He explained to me I was on a true adventure and everything happens for a reason even if I didn't know what the reason was. He drove me all the way through North Dakota... What an experience. I have seen so much open land, so many farms, so many oil rigs and so many man camps. ...
... muck as he watches movies back to back for the duration of the flight. Even more typically, Ethan stays awake the whole flight only to fall comatose about 20 mins before landing and then holds us a grudge for hours at being woken up. Luck is with us and we speed through immigration, getting to our hotel- Four Seasons near Pike Place market by 6 pm Seattle time. It is all very nice but everything is a blur as we are 8 hours behind the UK ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sheraton Bellevue
After reading some of the reviews, I was a little suspicious of this hotel. I give it above average ratings because the staff was very friendly and helpful, as was the management. Rooms were comfortable, clean, although small and the bathroom was small. The cleaning person didn't leave any new soap, despite my three day stay. Since I'm a Starwood Preferred Guest gold member, I was given access to the club lounge, which was above and beyond the call of duty. The lounge was OK but I suggest whoever makes decisions about food in the lounge to re-think their choices - don't make it more complicated than you need to. I'm used to cheese & crackers, veggies and fruit. Instead, the choices were fattening like mini-quiche and choc. covered strawberries. Breakfast in the club lounge also wasn't very good - I would've preferred scrambled eggs to the croissant with eggs. There was also no computer access in the club lounge, but there was a computer in the "business center" behind the front desk that was available for guests.
This was our first visit to Seattle and the Washington area -- we stayed at the Sheraton Bellevue because it was right next to our conference area (this was a business trip). The hotel is small, with its own restaurant and bar (interesting small dive where some locals like to come hang out), as well as a Mexican restaurant (Azteca) attached to it. The service we received from the front desk and the cleaning staff was just superb. The front desk is very accomodating and both concierge's we spoke with were very knowledgable of the area and more than happy to make restaurant reservations as well as share tips on great spots to visit. Their shuttle even took me to the Bellevue Square mall and picked me up immediately when I called the concierge's cell phone (thank you Jeremey!) The cleaning staff did a great job and even gave us complimentary turn-down service. The rooms are small, the hallway carpets and lighting could use some updating, but everything was very clean and nice. Rooms are very quiet. The beds gave us the best sleep we'd had in ages (Sheraton's own special sleeper beds -- I forget their name).
Nice Room, Friendly Staff
I was a little concerned about having booked a room before seeing the reviews listed here. My fears quickly disappeared as we met the staff - very friendly and helpful - and saw the room - nicely furnished and clean. I made sure to ask for a room with a view of downtown Bellevue - away from the freeway. I didn't notice any noise from that direction at all. The hotel provides free 24hour shuttle service to any location within five miles - two vans are available during the day and evening. The hotel does have a pool - very, very small, hot tub that seats six comfortably - eight in a pinch, sauna and exercise room with modern equipment. The pool area is so small there's only room for two lounges and two chairs. A very nice place overall esp. since they allow pets.
Somewhat below standard in service
Very noisy hotel as it is right next to a major freeway.
When i booked a month in advance, i asked for a quiet room and they obviously ignored my request. Got no sleep on the first night even with earplugs!
When i was given another room, i discovered it smelled as though a decomposing body was in it. Got given a third room - much better but still noisy. Staff also ignored our "please do not disturb sign" TWICE and woke my husband up thus preventing him from sleeping till 9am before his interview in Seattle. Quite disgusted. 500 bonus points really doesn't make up for that either. The affiliated Sam's restaurant across the road was good though - very good service and breakfast.
Lumpy old beds and Sandpaper linens
Ugh. This place is a disaster. The staff is friendly enough, but they can't fix the real problem, which is that the hotel is a dump. The beds are awful, linens are like sandpaper, food is inedible, views are either freeway or parking lot, the lighting is so dim you can't read or work in the rooms, heating is noisy and useless. Yuck!
Extremely convenient location to downtown Seattle, in a very nice suburb. Lots of nearby major chain restaurants and shops too. As frequent business and leisure travelers, we found the staff here to be exceptional -- some of the best Hilton staff we've encountered, and I'd even say we had 5 star, nearly white glove service. Just excellent.
Treated Like 2nd Class
Dont use your Hilton Honers points here. Was told could not have the contintal breakfast becouse I was using my Hilton points, Felt Like a 2nd class person, also only 12 stations to choose from on TV, or $11.99 or more for a movie.
Terrible for the cost
As mentioned before, this is not typical Hilton quality. Reserved a non-smoking room weeks in advance and when we arrived, only smoking rooms were left. For those non-smokers...trying to sleep on smelly sheets is tough. After requesting a move to a non-smoking room TWICE, we were moved at 4PM the next day. Although non-smoking, room still wasn't Hilton quality. We moved to the Hyatt for the weekend for $50 less a night and it was 200% better. I highly recommend the Hyatt over the Hilton unless you don't mind paying top dollar for a two star hotel.
Not up to Hilton standards
while certainly clean, the Hilton Bellevue is not up to Hilton standards. For the price, you would expect better. Overlooks the highway (noisy), bathrooms are tiny, rooms drab. On the whole more like a Motel 6 than a Hilton. Again, for the price point, better off staying somewhere else.
