Have fallen a bit behind due to WIFI problems and sheer exhaustion. Now in Vancouver, the Northnmost point of the trip and starting the treck back east tomorrow.
We arrived at the Hotel which was actually north of the downtown area we thought we were in. But there were planty of attractions around us. Bill and Melinda gates had a centre next to our hotel but it was not very inspiring. A garden of glass and the Space needle tower. To enter for viewing was $20+ but we had a meal in the large revolving …
... bar situated next to Seattle’s famous gum wall.
After a round of drinks and precariously balanced pizzas (on old tomato tins!) we head over to The Crocodile, “Seattle’s best live music venue”.The music tonight isn’t reaaaaaaaally my cup of tea (a local rap contest) but the bar itself is much beloved by music fans for its rich history, having hosted countless incredible bands such as Nirvana, Pearl Jam and R.E.M. as well ...
... me a ripe peach. The act of kindness was far more rejuvenating than the fruit itself. When I finally found US2, I pack down, held up my cardboard sign and stuck my thumb out. Probably a hundred cars passed me without more than a discouraging glance and I really didn't know what to expect. Soon enough, a big truck pulled over and the country man inside offered me a ride 20 miles down the road to his bar. I accepted and we talked exclusively about muscle cars. He proudly showed me ...
... the facility in the summertime. In the cafeteria all food is composted and material recycled. There is a brilliant system of measuring the amount of waste left over and weighing it, in an noncompeting way, against the masses of the mess hall.
Ready to be potentially grossed out but totally amazed? I also got a close look at their the composting toilets, that work to separate the solids ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
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.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hampton Inn & Suites Seattle Downtown
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.
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.
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!
