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.

... there was a bright rainbow. We had a large water and Gatorade hoping to fight our extreme fatigue. There were many tourist taking in the beauty. Back to the car where we finished up the LSU game, Geaux tigers! Omaha! We stopped At the Round table for pizza, it was disappointing, it didn't even have crust, just a drippy mess. I should have picked DQ and had a blizzard for supper. On to our hotel outside of Tacoma, another CI, not so great but they gave us a rice crispy treat and a bottle ...

And then in the gallery they had an exact replica of the space shuttle which was what all the astronauts used when they were training to go into space. It was donated to the museum a couple of years ago. Very cool to go in that :)

Best effort of the day has to go to Harrison Vidler who managed to see his skis fly in separate directions along with stocks and I'm sure I saw something else fly elsewhere as well.

On the 76th floor of the Columbia Centre we had phenomenal views over the city including the Space Needle which sat at about half the height we were at. We were lucky the day was so clear and sunny so we could see over to West Seattle and all the mountains in the backdrop. There was a football stadium which has home to the Seattle Sounders nearby that was absolutely packed. It was a ...

Other than recounting the plague story while we were down in a tunnel, our guide was very good, and was the first to approach the level of Patrick of the Ottawa river cruise, who will forever be my benchmark for outstanding tour giving (he had a good dry sense of humour, excellent delivery, and he gave the impression that he had not just memorised a script).
The other good news is that my cold eventually went away, and I have experienced no plague symptoms thus ...
