Upgraded to the king suite for only a few dollars more. It is huge! It's bigger than my first apartment. Separate living room with fireplace, full kitchen with granite counters, separate bedroom, and outside balcony.

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!

After our late night at Teatro ZinZanni last night, it was apparent that we should sleep in today. So we didn't even get up until 10:00. Beside, it's the fourth and we will be up late tonight again to see the fireworks. I looked on Facebook this morning, and it turns out that the girl from Teatro ZinZanni, Vita Radionova, that we liked so much …
This is our third day in Seattle, and I think we've seen most of the touristy things we wanted to see. We thought about doing one of the overnight trips to Victoria, or San Juan Islands, but it was just too much hassle with the bike, and the fact we don't have real luggage. So we decided to save those places for when we come back for an Alaska …
As if we didn't burn ourselves out yesterday with Citypass tourist sites, today we ventured down to the harbor to finish the remaining Citypass tickets. In addition, we wanted to do a little exploring of the city in general, and we also wanted to take the famous underground tour. Pier 55 to Pier 59 is where all the action is in the Seattle tourist …
Today was our first day playing tourist in Seattle, but at 6:00AM Seattle is still asleep. We tried to sleep in a little, and by the time we had breakfast and puttered around we were able to stretch it out to 8:00AM. Luckily, the Chihuly Glass exhibit opens at 8:00, so we headed over there to begin our day. First on the agenda was to buy a …
We were a little late leaving Winthrop this morning. The bed was so comfortable, and after Jody brought coffee back to the room, we opened the balcony door and sat around drinking coffee and listening to the river. We probably could have just spent the day relaxing on the balcony. After coffee, we packed up the bike, talked to another motorcycle …
