Happy Birthday, Katie!!
We had some coffee and pastries in our room, compliments of Chip and Karol who had gone for a long walk and brought us goodies. I was having one of those days when I couldn't function, either physically or mentally so we decided it would be good if I just stayed in the room for the day. Not a good way to celebrate …
Seattle has soul. And I'm staying at the Pioneer Square, where it all started for the western society. Nice town with a short history: a 100 years of Americanism has build this town into a funny place. Good music, foreign food and American girls for sale (US and Native). What more does one need? Maybe some genuinity? Typical American, don't …

We gradually woke up as US soil approached, with the last couple of hours of the 11-hour flight taken up with breakfast and customs forms.
We waited nervously at the baggage claim in Dallas, wondering how things would go at Customs if our bags hadn't made the flight but it was a breeze. We didn't even have to turn in the form we filled out on the plane after going ...

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN PLUS Pioneer Square Hotel Seattle
Fabulous!! I'll Stay Here from Now On!
Fabulous location, near downtown but you do not pay downtown prices.
The hotel is beautiful, the staff is extremely courteous and helpful.
The rooms are gorgeous. Free continental breakfast downstairs. High speed internet access downstairs. It is right near the entrance to the underground tour. Walking distance to most everything including Safeco Field. There is a little bar next door where you can sit outside and watch people. It is also within walking distance (about a block or two) from the waterfront. I recommend it highly. We were carless so I have no comments about parking with this hotel.
I was ecstatic to arrive at this hotel and find it to be as charming and quaint and wonderful as the reviews said it was. It's always an experience to choose a hotel in a city you've never visited, without recommendations from friends or family who have actually stayed there.
Just got back from staying in Seattle at the Best Western Pioneer Inn Hotel! I was a little unsure of what I would find once we arrived in Seattle. I was told that the Pioneer Square area was 'interesting ' and lots of panhandlers. I live in Victoria BC, where panhandlers can be quite frequent. When we checked into the hotel, we were delighted. Our room was on the small side, but I didn't go to Seattle to hang out in my room! The hotel was SPOTLESS!!!!!!!!! The staff were all very helpful. The area around the hotel was interesting, not once approached by a panhandler.... that happened uptown around westlake center, and Pike's place Market. We attended 2 Mariners games, and walked both nights to and from the game to our hotel. We only used a taxi once, and that was from where the Victoria Clipper docks TO the hotel. Otherwise we walked everywhere, or took the Free Metro. Mostly walked. The two restaurants we liked best were: Il trattitoria Mitchelli's across from the hotel, and FX McRory's near the stadium. Both had excellent food and very nice servers.Definitely will tell all my friends that head to Seattle to stay at the Pioneer Square Hotel. I have stayed at other so called"upscaled " downtown Seattle hotels before, and next time I go...
Love This Hotel!
My husband and I stayed here on our first trip to Seattle last year, and just loved it! We're going back at Christmas. This hotel has a LOT of charm! It's really lovely, and service was great, too. It's conveniently located to Pioneer Square activities, coffee shops, etc.
If you enjoy the simple pleasures of life, this hotel is it! But, if you're in a rush, need a lot of room to spread out, want a cocktail lounge and excitement, love big modern hotels with big cold lobbies, maybe this hotel's not for you.
Pioneer Square Hotel
Recently stayed at the Pioneer Square Hotel. This boutique hotel is in a great location - close to the wharf, historic Chinatown and "old Seattle". The rooms are comfortable and reasonably priced. Great value for the money with in-room coffee and continental breakfast. Also close to all public transportation. Took the bus to Pike's Market - walked to the Space Needle - took the tram to downtown and then the bus back to the hotel. Dinner along the wharf with a fun trolley ride to get there.
I have stayed here on business several times over the last few years and give the hotel high marks. Due to its age, the rooms are of various sizes and shapes. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and tastefully decorated (although the fiber-fill pillows are too "poofy" for my tastes). Thus, if you wish a large or small room, the staff can probablyaccomadate your request. Despite its location next to Highway 99 (the elevated Alaska Vaiduct), the interior of the rooms are quiet.
I firmly believe that the other 3-4 people posting comments about this hotel are either hotel employees or happy-headed folks who have smoked too many organic chemicals from Seattle's Fremont district!
The staff at this hotel gave us some of the best customer service I have seen in a long time. Michael,desk clerk and Joseph, bell hop were outstanding. It is a historic hotel, almost 100 yrs old. Joseph will gladly tell you the history of the Pioneer Square area, which we enjoyed very much. Rooms are a bit smaller than regular hotels, because of the building's age, but they are very clean and tastefully decorated. It is very convenient to shops, restaurants, and only 1 block from the waterfront trolley. Great location to hop on the trolley and tour the waterfront. In the morning, they have a complimentary continental breakfast downstairs which includes bagels/cream cheese, muffins, fruit, cereal, juice, various coffees and teas. We really enjoyed our stay there and would definitely go back if in Seattle again. The staff was a standout in our eyes. Rare in this day and age.
A Diamond in the Ruff !
We have visited Seattle on a number of occasions and have always stayed in the center of town. Our travel agent booked us at the Best Western - Pioneer Square so that we could be close to the stadium and the cruiseships. What a lovely surprise this diamond in the ruff is, an elegant historic, boutique hotel that has all the amenities, convenience and excellent service - rom the bellmen / porters and front desk to the immaculate housekeeping staff. We definitely will be back.
Five stars in our book !
THE BEST WESTERN PIONEER SQUARE HOTEL SEATTLE, WASHINGTONWe stayed at this hotel based on USER reviews, most of which were excellent.We couldn't have asked for a more pleasant and helpful staff, especially Michael at the front desk.This is an older hotel with old world charm that has ungone more than 6 million dollars in referbishing and, they've done a GREAT JOB! Our room (#224) although small, had two double beds, excellent Cherrywood furnishings and gold fixtures in the bathroom. Although our room only faced another building, it was quiet and comfortable. They do have rooms on the street side, some with balconies that cost a bit more.They have a beautiful eight chair conference room (could easily add more chairs if necessary) with a computer for accessing the internet.The location is quaint in an older part of town with excellent access to almost anything. It is within a block of the waterfront, the waterfront trolley, ferry building and the walkway along the entire waterfront and shops. About 6 blocks from Pike Street Market, and there are numerous resturantsalone the waterfront.It is a "fare free zone" where public transportation is free. Parking can be a bit expensive but the hotel provides secure parking in a parking garage for only $15 a day which is a bargain. And, while we rented a car to go to Bremerton, Chittendon locks and the Space Needle, we could have taken buses or taxicabs to everything except Bremerton and saved money. If you do take a ferry to Bremerton, be sure to take the self guided tour of the USS Turner Joy, a retired Navy Destroyer. It is excellent. The Turner Joy was one of the two destroyers that were attacked in the Tonkin Gulf that led to the escalation of the Vietnam war.If you do want to rent a car, use Enterprise Rent-A-Car at 2116 Westlake Ave. They have the most pleasant and helpful staff I've ever used, their prices are competitive and they will drive you to and from the hotel and their office.The hotel has a very nice Continental breakfast and, on thept secrets in Seattle, "Tina's Diner."Furbished like a 1950's diner, I can't see how she stays in business with the low prices and large portions of food she serves. We ate there for 2 lunches and one breakfast and although hungry, we never did finish all the meal. If you have a small appetite, share a lunch sandwich! They have a really pleasant staff too.By the way, don't miss the 2 hour Argosy cruise ship's"Locks Cruise" from pier 56. It takes you along Elliott Bays, through the Chittenden locks into Lake Washington with a bus back to the waterfront.All in all, we had an excellent vacation experience with great weather for four days with only one 10 minute rain shower. In fact, we had to start wearing caps to prevent getting sunburned.Pete HansenBillings, Montana
