Homewood Suites: A terrific value!
The Homewood Suites was very conveniently located, so we did not have to drive and pay parking. Enjoyed the kitchenette with full-sized fridge! Complimentary breakfast was first-rate! Even a small fire that emptied the hotel on Saturday night did not dampen our enjoyment of our stay! We will go back!
Just like home.....
I recently stayed 2 nights at the Homewood Suites. I was able to secure the Entertainment rate of $99/night which was a great deal. My room was on the 4th floor and have wonderful views of Elliot Bay and the Olympic Mountains. The room was spacious, clean, very comfortable - it was just like home. Homewood Suites provided complimentary breakfast and dinner.
This was a plus since I was on the go for my stay. I would recommend the Homewood Suites and stay their again.
Homewood Suites, Downtown Seatle
My husband and I recently stayed at the Homewood Suites in downtown Seattle. We were very pleased with our stay. The rooms are very clean and spacious. The breakfast they served in the morning was excellent and they even offered a light meal in the evenings Mon. thru Fri. Great location; near many of the tourist sites. Highly recommend this hotel.
Great Family Vacation
The last week of July, my husband, my 13 year old son and I went to a family wedding in Snohomish, WA. Once the wedding festivities were over, we moved into the Homewood Suites on the edge of Seattle Center. This was a very good place to stay. We had a fabulous bayside view overlooking the Myrtle Edwards Park. The suite included two televisions, a full kitchen (groceries could be delivered or within walking distance), and a sofa bed. Each morning we had a full buffet breakfast of eggs, sausage, pancakes, breads, fruits, cheese, juices and of course Starbucks coffee. Each evening we had the option to have a light supper and drinks. We only did this one evening, but it was good. Ravioli, bread and salad with wine or beer. All of this food is included in the price of the room. I figure we saved some, and it was convenient. Now on to Seattle! We were able to ride the bus from right in front of the hotel to the Market Place. We had a wonderful time exploring the shops, listening to the musicians, and of course the flying fish. We got a CityPass, even though we did not use all of it, we got more than the value we paid. The Aquarium is fun, and the IMAX was a bonus. We enjoyed the Seattle Ducks ride (Captain Al Tuna we love you!), and Seattle Center was exhausting but fun. My guys are music crazy and loved Experience Music. The Science Museum was fun also. We did get a chance to go to Discovery Park and to the Fish Ladder. Unfortunately, we were about a week or two late for one variety of salmon jumping, but we did get to see boats go through the locks. The botanical garden was nice to. Next time I manage to get to Seattle, I will focus on the San Juan Islands and a trip to Victoria, BC.
The Suites are sweet....
I had a great time at the HWS in Seattle. The Sales staff is always accomodating and the rooms are wonderful. The breakfast is really great for a continental style... My family will always go back.
Good for families
We stayed at the Homewood Suites by Hilton Seattle-Downtown this past weekend. Overall, we enjoyed our stay. The all-suite hotel is good for families like ours with older children. The included breakfasts were good, but the serving area was crowded with all the guests.
It's not really downtown, but the monorail (a short walk from the hotel) or a short taxi ride will get you downtown in minutes.
If you are offered a room on the first floor, make sure it is far away from the breakfast area, unless you usually arise at the crack of dawn.
We had a room that was right next to the serving area, and it was so noisy that it sounded like breakfast was being served IN our room!
We asked for a room change and one of the staff members was very unhelpful and unsympathetic, but later my wife talked to another staff member and he immediately assigned us to another room. My wife can be more persuasive.
We travel to Seattle fairly often and will probably stay here again, but will insist on a room above the first floor.
Outstanding Value and Comfort
We spent two nights in the Homewood Suites, and will definitely stay there the next time we are in Seattle. Very clean, plenty of room, friendly staff, underground parking, a fully-stocked kitchen, and a supersized complimentary breakfast were included in the reasonable price of the room. An easy walk to the Space Needle, Seattle Center, and casual restaurants, we enjoyed being a few blocks away from the Market area. We inadvertantly left two small pieces of jewelry in our trash when we left; when we called, the staff searched until they found them for us! Highly recommended: Outstanding Value and Comfort!
A great base for seattle
we returned from seattle yesterday and really enjoyed our stay at the Homewood Suites. located a short walk from the seattle center, waterfront, belltown, etc. the hotel is a perfect place to explore downtown seattle. the rooms are plain but clean and the kitchenette as always, comes in handy.
Great for a longer stay
I just stayed six nights at this hotel and I really enjoyed it.
I stayed in one of their small suites which had a kitchenette/living room, bedroom, and bath. The kitchen area had a big sink, 2-burner stove top, microwave, refrigerator/freezer, dish washer, lots of cabinets and a counter with three stools. Utensils, pots, and pans were included. The room had a small deck but my room was above the freeway and the deck was noisy.
It is next to the Washington State Convention Center where my meetings were. It is close to the Paramount theater and ACT theater, Egyptian movie theater and the downtown area.
Breakfasts are included; Ethernet is available for about $10 a day with a computer desk and a great chair (one of those adjustable mesh office chairs).
When I first walked into the room it looked a little old (especially the carpet and upholstery) but I soon grew to appreciate the reasonable price, space, location, and the meal savings from the kitchen and breakfasts.
Good location, good price
Stayed here for New Year's eve 2002. The location is excellent, just a few blocks from Seattle Center where you can catch the monorail to downtown. The waterfront area is walking distance. It is on a busy street but on one side of hotel you can see the harbor. The higher the room the better the view. Good rates online, especially the govt/corporate rate. Breakfast and free happy hour were good, but crowded. Secure parking for a fee.

Well we are safely in our hotel room ready to take the cruise tomorrow. However, 24 hours earlier it seemed the trip was not going to happen. On Thursday afternoon, at around 5:15, I just felt an excruciating pain in my left side. I was still at the office and the pain eased slightly just enough so that I could drive home. However, the pain …
... aspects of Seattle would be that some parts of it were a bit run-down. The Pioneer Square area was a bit sad when it could be an attraction as this was where Seattle was initially founded. There is also a lot of construction at the waterfront, including the city's efforts to sink the freeway. I know that this is only temporary and I trust that it will look good once all is finished however it looks a bit shabby at the moment.
... of the city as I know some of you have experienced. Dick particularly commented on how much Seattle has developed since its completion for the 1962 World's Fair. Saw photos of workers working near the top of the Needle without the safety gear we expect today. Took 41 seconds in the elevator to travel the 685 feet to the Observation Tower. We were again impressed with the visibility from the tower and the cleanliness of the air as we ...
... much more generous; they will do something for nothing. Give without the expectation of receiving. This was a welcome change to English culture. - You have to tip a bartender for opening a bottle. Such a hard task. - The clubbing dancing circles are awesome; I will definitely miss this atmosphere. - You have to be slightly careful about being sarcastic. The tone is not always picked up on. - Don't get into the trap of ordering a meal with chips. It will come with crisps. - ...
... middle schools. It was shocking to learn that our daughter's teachers made sure to tell her this vacation will definitely affect her grades. Poor girl was not bringing her computer with her, but made sure to check on her assignments every night. It's a good way to deal with our jetlag I guess.
