Canberra to Seattle Saturday 5/7/08 We've arrived safely!! We made the long-haul Sydney to San Francisco flight, then transferred to Seattle. Crossing the date line meant that we left Sydney at 2:40pm Saturday and arrived in Seattle at 2:15pm Saturday! And for future reference, we've learned to not say "You're not interested in any drugs, are you …

... in one pitch. Each flower had a different group singing at a different pitch. Another piece called "Olympic Iliad" (A. Liberman, 1984) was a huge red tubular sculpture. More thought provoking than the actual sculpture were some of the places that people had placed graffiti. It almost seemed impossible to climb up to where they had marked, yet they had obviously found a way.

To cap off our sightseeing tour we headed to Volunteer Park to climb the water tower. The ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Express Seattle City Center

    A good value in Seattle

    from

    My wife and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Seattle City Center in October 2003. We found our rooms during our stays there to be clean and well kept. There is a very good continental breakfast in the mornings with something for everyone. A guest will find this breakfast to be fairly complete for a continental breakfast with muffins, sticky buns, english muffins, cereal, fruit, and drinks. This is without question a good value for your money in Seattle. What kept it from being excellent for us were two factors:

    Best Value for Budget Hotel

    from

    Our room was clean and comfortable and had an excellent view of the space needle. The free continental brakfast was excellent ,there were pastries,bagels,fruit,cereals,juices,coffee,waffles and other goodies. It is about a seven block walk to the Seattle Center and Space Needle,from here you can take the Monorail to the Westlake Center Downtown where you can walk to Pike Place Market and the Waterfront.

    Great deal

    from

    Great breakfast and friendly service for a good price. It is a walking distance from the seattle center which was nice when you are traveling with kids.

    Comfort of express

    from

    we stayed at the holiday inn express at seattle center, found the rooms very clean and comfortable, the staff was extermley friendly. The breakfast was plentful and very attractive. This hotel is truly a bargain and the managment tries very hard to please. I highly reccomend this inn on your next visit for value. manjiwani@aol.com

    Bring the family!!!

    from

    My husband and our 2 small children have stayed here 2 times now and both times, we have experienced clean rooms, friendly people, and a big continental breakfast with something for everyone. waffles, cereal english muffins, sticky buns, fruit, oatmeal etc... really, something for everyone. also the parking garage that locks so your car is safe from the street. we would recommend this property to everyone, although it is across the highway to get to the space needle there are crosswalks and it takes about 5 minutes longer.

    Better than the reviews I read...

    from

    Just spent 4 nights @ this property. Took advice of reviews and asked

    Disappointing stay

    from

    can't bet the price and location. room size and amenities are average. access by car is difficult due to street alignment. parking without extra charge is proved but the parking spaces are tiny, limited and the passenger must serve as an outrider to help safely maneuver. traffic noises invade sleep and may require raised voices to be heard. elevators are too few and slow as molasses causing long waits. asked for directions to a drugstore which turned out to be closed.

    Friendly staff, great view of Space Needle

    from

    We stayed here mid-December 2002. We had to find a place to stay in Seattle due to the sudden death of my husband's father. We found a great rate on the Holiday Inn Express web site. I am a Priority Club member so we were upgraded to a King Suite with a great view of the Space Needle (which happened to be decorated in holiday lights). The location is convenient to the Space Needle, museums, Imax, etc. but it is a bit awkward walking around the divided highway. We walked it anyway...so bring comfy shoes. The staff was friendly and helpful. We needed to ship some boxes back to NH and they directed us to the Post Office and gave us packing tape. The breakfast was great and the pool looked excellent!

    Not great

    from

    Nothing to write home about. On the plus side: the room was clean; the staff was friendly and helpful; the breakfast buffet was plentiful. On the negative side: street noise is terrible; the curtains don't block light adequately; the breakfast area is designed for a much smaller hotel; the elevators are insufficient for the size; the location is not as ideal as they lead you to believe (the Seattle Center IS two blocks away, like they claim, except that you cannot cross the highway, so it's nearly a mile to walk over there). The parking, though minimal, is not free. For downtown Seattle, it may be a bargain, but I'm not sure that I'd do it again.

    Highly recommend the Holiday Inn Express

    from

    I chose this hotel based on its convenient proximity to tourist attractions, free continental breakfast, and free parking. It turned out to be much nicer than I had imagined; the decor was attractive, the breakfast buffet offered a wide selection of tasty choices (including biscuits and gravy!), the rooms were large and clean, and the staff was friendly and helpful.

    I can't say enough nice things about this hotel and its convenient location. We walked to the Space Needle area each morning and took the monorail downtown; thus saving the hassle of searching for a parking place. It was a great trip!
