TravelPod Member ReviewsHampton Inn & Suites Seattle Downtown
The Hotel was north of downton Seattle but well located for the tower and museum. Next to Bill Gates centre. Large well stocked 24hr supermarket with plenty of fruit, cooked meats, pizza, and other things. Mono-rail shuttle to centre $2.50 each way or $1 for seniors - there non stop in 5 minutes.
The Inn is deceptive from the outside but looks after you well, good rooms, free breakfast and computer centre/wi-fi.
Spoilt by noisy asian neighbours - no fault of the hotel just an unfortunate spin off when travelling these days - Chinese, Japanese, Koreans these days are often noisy, ignorant both young and old. These were banging about until early hours but as I was doing laundry before boarding. $1wash $1dry. it didn't bother me too much
My wife however had disturbed sleep from their banging and complained - we were transferred to a suite. This was fantastic with seperate diner/lounge and full kitchen would book into one of these again.
Overall good experience at the Hotel - good value and in the top of the places we have stayed at during this two month trip.

What you expect (and a bit more)
All the Hampton Inns are very basic hotels. The furniture is more like what you would see in a dorm room than in someone's home. But you should know that going in to any Hampton Inn.
We spent 3 days at the Seattle location and had a good visit overall. The one hitch was being promised a non-smoking room, but clearly windnig up in a smoking room - with no other rooms available. That is a small thing (overall) but when you're told to your face it is non-smoking and it's not you just question the staff a bit.
This hotel was in good condition. The rooms were clean, the halls well kept, and the dining room area was always in good shape. The breakfast is the somewhat drab Hampton Inn selection which also is dorm quality (but that's what you get at Hampton versus Hilton Garden Inn, for example). It will get you going, but you don't walk away genuinely happy.
One night we were there they had a bbq for all guests. The staff was there and were very friendly. The front desk people were equally nice and tried hard to satisfy your needs - what to do, where to go, etc.
The location was great for us, though as another reviewer noted, it is not really downtown- it is out by the space needle- walking distance to the Duck Tours, Music Experience, monorail, space needle, basketball stadium. So it is easy to get to downtown.
If you want luxury, go elsewhere, but for a nice, simple, clean and friendly hotel, it's a great option for your next Seattle escape.
This hotel is not in the heart of downtown or the "cool" shopping areas, but it's within walking distance of the Experience Music Project, the Family Fun center, and several restaurants. AND the parking is free! Being slightly off the beaten track means it's a little quieter, too.
We drove up from Portland to attend a Mariners game, spending one night here. Our room was spotless and smelled fresh (something we never take for granted when traveling!), the beds were comfortable, the breakfast was bountiful, and the staff were SO polite and helpful! My husband wandered out to the front desk at 9:30 p.m. and requested a down pillow. Bam! There it was, cheerfully procured.
We walked 7 blocks to a Mexican restaurant called Peso's. YUMMMM! High-end Mexican food, plus a colorful decor, and attractive wait staff. Not especially appropriate for our 7-year-old - no kids' menu - but he was happy with a cheese quesadilla.
We will stay at the Hampton from now on!
Good Stay, But Not Really 'Downtown'
Comfortable stay, free internet, room clean, quiet, note: not really close to convention center, main downtown area... if you have business or want to check out the bars/restaurants in that area, suggest getting a closer hotel or its taxi time.
Our family of four stayed here over New Year's and it was great. We had one of the suites that had a kitchen, fireplace, two bedrooms and a balcony that faced the Space Needle. We had a perfect view for the fireworks on New Year's Eve! Our only problem was that there weren't enough chairs, we had a sofa and two dining chairs, not very good for having a large group. A great place to stay with kids.
"Comfortable suites, quiet, usefull extras for free!"
There are some useful free extras like: Free parking area, free highspeed internet access and free coffee/tee inside the lobby all day and night which are great!The suites have a chimney, two TVīs, 2 telephones and a small kitchen with refrigerator, microwave, coffemaker. A self service guest laundrey is also available for 3 $ on each floor! The rooms are very very clean. The space needle and Monorail are about 5 min away.
Breakfast untill 10 a.m. Several restaurants in the neighborhood. I stayed there for 5 weeks!
Much better than the Embassy Suites in Tukwilla.
A great budget hotel
Great location; great staff! Breakfast was available until 10 each morning, and included a decent assortment of cold cereal, fruit, muffins and one hot dish (eggs, french toast, etc.). Overall, an excellent value.
Great place to stay
I have stayed at this Hampton inn several times. It is a little farther away from downtown, but it is right across the street from Seattle Center (Music Experience, the Needle, Key Center). The staff is excellent, breakfast is great and the rooms are better than the price, which is very reasonable.
This is a great hotel! I stayed there 5 times already, it was always pleasant. The rooms are "midpriced", but you get what you pay for. The parking is free (about $10-20 at other hotels), but it can be difficult to find a parking spot during the summer months. Can't beat the location, and the breakfast buffet with hot items is nice.
Stayed there for 3 days last month when I visited Seattle. Room was clean, spacious, and comfortable typical of the Hampton Inn franchise. Staff was friendly and helpful with our requests. The hotel is tailored to the business traveler, with business center and meeting rooms, internet access, etc which is a plus for me. The free breakfast buffet was very good, not the usual continental breakfast. If you are going to Seattle for site seeing, this hotel is located within walking distance to the space needle. Highly recommended.
Good hotel to stay!
This is a good place to stay. Other than the goofy streets of downtown Seattle, you'll be within walking distance of the Space Needle, 1-2 miles from the I-5 freeway, walking distance from several good restaurants. The hotel is clean, fairly modern, good service, and pretty economical. I'll stay here again when in town!

So this morning started out with an early morning pat down by a rather terrifying woman at the airport. Security is so much more intense flying domestic than it is international. It was pretty scary, we tried to act cool but I think they saw through that. Had to refrain from making any jokes - do not think they would appreciate them in the slightest! Especially the one I had lined up about ...

I am moving on from over 12 years at Microsoft to a new role at Groupon in Seattle as a Sr. Product Manager. Specifically, I’ll be focused on Groupon Pages / another worthwhile article). I’m very excited about this new position and to be working with the great teams at Groupon! ...

There are 36 Glaciers on the mountain and it is volcanic, last eruption was in 1894. It was not long and a few yawns, so all off to bed reasonably early, all ready for a good solid sleep again.

The following day, we had planned to go tubing which, is sitting on a rubber ring, floating down the river and drinking alcohol. All sounded pretty awesome until we had floated around 1/4 of our route and it started to torrentially rain with a thunder storm and lightening. I was chilly sat there in my bikini with only frisbys (you use these as paddles) to keep the rain off. The scenario was pretty ...
... 7:30 pm, after trying to find the bus line for the space needle, never could find it. We decided to wait to see it when we came back since we had walked so long in the 95 degree heat (unusual for Seattle). Service was very slow but the chicken wraps were good! After Dinner we filled out papers for YMT and met our tour guide Monica. Unfortunately, didn't sleep well but just the first night in a new ...
