Historical Traveler Reviews Executive Hotel Pacific Seattle
For this we paid $143 CDN a night!?:o(
Referred by friend and unfortunately did not read the reviews prior to our 1 night stay. It is close to downtown but farther away than any of the info guides or staff suggest. The extremely steep hill was a challenge as I have severe ankle injury from an mva. The 1st room had a bathroom that reminded us of a school locker room. An old dank shower stall and no tub! We had to to straddle the toilet & squeeze past the door to get in. Requested a move to a room with a tub and a rubber mat to stand on to avoid slipping. We were assigned a room facing 4th St with a slightly larger bathroom, the mat never came. The sink - small, the pillows - small. You will need both fans. Parking is $16, way too far with no bell person or luggage carts. Hotel Staff was friendly but not very helpful. Did not eat there. Water and ice had "old" taste. For this we paid $143 Canadian a night!? Money better spent elsewhere. We won't go back, rating... 3 out of 10.
Clean, small, convenient
We booked a room at the Pacific Plaza for two days in early April. It was close to many attractions and much cheaper than its neighbors. We were nervous after reading all the reviews, but decided we needed to save our money for dining. We weren't disappointed -- it's basically what we expected. We had a queen-size bed, a chair, and a tv. Isn't that enough? The bathroom was small, but it was just fine. We faced the construction of the new library. They started at 6:30am -- it didn't really get noisy until 8:30 though. Still, the view of the construction was preferable to the other side, an alley. We found the construction interesting, but that's because we could close the window when it got too noisy. I wouldn't stay at this hotel in the summer since the fan is necessary even when it's 55 outside, as it was when we were there. The rest of the year, this hotel is a good deal.
Ignore the bad reviews for this place. Charming, clean, comfortable rooms. Small? So what! Sits in the heart of downtown Seattle. Staff were ready to serve. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. If you plan on spending 24 hours per day of your vacation in your room, book a luxury suite at another hotel. If you want a nice, clean place to crash after visiting this beautiful city, stay at the Pacific Plaza Hotel.
The Hotel is charming, the staff friendly and they now allow pets. They even have a dog of their own named Ruby. I made reservations for my friends and they we competlely thrilled with the deal they got and the new renovations made this choice perfect. Would reccomend it to any one looking for a fun place at a good deal.
I have to admit that I was a bit worried about reserved a room at Pacific Plaza before I found and read all of the reviews here. Even just one day before my trip to Seattle, I was still debating whether I should take a hit on the penalty fees and find myself a different hotel. I didnt.Once I arrived at the hotel, and walked up to the front desk, my impression of the place was decent, not lavish, but decent. The staff was friendly and fast to check me in.Some of the bad reviews still lingered in my head. Once I got in to my room, all my doubts disappeared. Sure the place was small, but even with 2 people in the room would not make it cramped. The bed is clean, the carpet did look like that it need to be replaced. The bathroom is a bit small, but adequate. The hotels location is in between Pike Place Market (about 7 blocks) and Pioneer Square (also 7 blocks), which is perfect. The public transportation is also within a block or 2. My overall rating for this hotel is slight above the average (because of its location). It was great for what I needed, a place to sleep, not sitting in the lobby of some overpriced hotels. The money Ive saved if I had stayed at W Hotel(next door), bought me two nice dinners at McCormicks (3 blocks away)and Wild Ginger, and many Caffe Lattes..
Great Price for the Location
Stayed here for 7 nights in November 2002. Picked it because it was inexpensive for the location near much more expensive hotels in the center of Seattle.
True I needed the fan to cool down the room, and the place looks like it could use a new coat of paint. But it was perfectly comfortable and clean and I didn't have a problem with noise. Would recommend for any budget-conscious traveller.
And Seattle is beautiful.
This place is funky and friendly
We stay here every time we visit Seattle. Hotels in Seattle are expensive, and often inconveniently located, if you do manage to get a good deal. I don't know where the other reviewers have been staying, but we love this place. The staff are helpful, it is centrally located to a lot of great restaurants, the Market, the Train Station and International District is a short bus or cab ride away.and lots of reasonably priced parking nearby(which is at a premium in DT Seattle, believe me). My only complaint would be that our radiator did make an awful lot of noise the night we were there. The decor was fine, the beds are very comfortable. I'd rather stay in an old hotel anytime, just for the uniqueness of this place.
Small & hot
2 night stay. The rooms were really small, but nice & clean. The hotel is older, but unique great for singles, or couples. The room was warm, turned on the fan all night. Can't beat the price for the location. Walk to downtown mall, market, movies, & more approx. 5 minutes. Construction across the street get rooms toward the back. There is no view, just sleep. Parking lot next door.
Avoid this Hotel
This hotel looks and smells very old.
You will never get a good sleep, since you can hear everything even your neighbors.
The plumbing is very old and makes a lot of noise.
There is a construction accros the street making it more noisy.
Everything looks worn out the bathrooms are falling apart.
The standard double room is very very small, basically a rat hole.
Add $15.00 for daily parking if you are driving.
You need to walk 7 blocks to get to the nearest shopping.
Friendly people and a decent Continental breakfast.
I found better hotels around the area, and just avoid this hotel.
A cheap hotel at a cheap price
For "recently renovated", The Executive Pacific Plaza is amazingly shabby and outdated. It appears to have been constructed in the early 1900's, with few upgrades since. They still use radiators for heat, and have no AC. There are pipes running across the hallway ceilings, and the lights in common areas are depressingly dim. The headboards, however, appear to be circa 1975, since they are mustard-color vinyl with brass tack edging.
The rooms are laughably small -- only about 3 feet on any given side of the queen size bed. The bathroom sink is so small (appx 10" in diameter) that I could not even get the iron under the faucet to put water in.
We were unfortunate enough to be there during a 4-day stretch of 85+ degree days. With only a ceiling fan and small tabletop fan to cool the room, the heat made sleeping very difficult. There is also noisy construction going on across the street, and the small window in my room overlooked a noisy parking deck.

... they must love their java. One of the things I didn't mention is how surprised we were that Kalispell, a town of almost 20,000 people had a Costco and two bedroom, ranch-style condos starting at $650k. Looks like a lot of constriction going on all over town. Dick was wondering if Kalispell is one of the recommended retirement cities? Although not sure I would want to winter there.
