Inn at Queen Anne
Travel Blogs from Seattle
The drive from Portland to Seattle was decent - we made a stop at Olympia for a meal but didnt see much in our drive around there that warranted a stay. Back on the road for a little over an hour to Seattle.
We did not have a hotel room yet as the rates were really high for tonight for some reason. Our plan (or maybe it was my plan - …
The complimentary shuttle service from the hotel would pick us up and drive us to Pike Market Place. At 8h30 he would leave, so we thought. So we were planning to go downstairs by 8, and grab the complimentary breakfast. But that was not correct at the end. We got a call by 7h56 with the question 'are you still joining us?' Ofcourse.. but we had …
The Seattle border and customs check was piece of cake. A real difference with Nex York. I counted for 2 hours to leave the airport, but all in all, we passed the border and we collected our lugguge in less then 1 hour. Driving to Downtown Seattle was another thing. We could take busses 194 or 174. The 194 is an express bus, so that one would drive …
... dessert company owned by their entrepreneurial friend and next-door neighbour Jamie. I don’t know how Mayank keeps in character the whole night but he somehow does – ranting, raving and having us in stitches well into the morning. Until... Suddenly… he lies flat on his back. In the middle of the floor. Clasps his hands to his chest. Sighs. Smiles. And falls fast asleep. Not even Rich kicking him wakes him or interrupts the quiet waves of ...
Another lovely breakfast of homemade waffles from Josie and Bill this morning. We then taught Josie how to use Skype as she she saw us skyping Pete's parents and thought it was amazing. Then said our goodbyes and off we went. First stop was to drop off our car at the airport. Having done just under 4000 miles in the last 3 weeks, we are going to miss it. Got our first taste ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Inn at Queen Anne Seattle
Loved the Inn at Queen Anne
Inn at Queen Anne was a wonderful place to stay. The price was great, it was in a wonderful neighborhood with grocery stores and restaurants.
The kitchen was wonderful to have so we didn't have to eat out for every single meal. There was a huge walk in closet to put our clothes and luggage. We were traveling with a baby and they provided us with a nice crib. The staff was extremely friendly. The breakfast was great and they had a very nice wine reception. The grounds were beautiful! We were just a short walk away from the Space Needle and the monorail. We would definately stay there again on our next trip to Seattle.
Loved the Inn at Queen Anne
We loved the Inn at Queen Anne! We knew from the price and location that this was a not an upscale place so we weren't expecting much. Were we surprised! It is charming, comfortable, and convenient to shopping and reasonable restaurants. A real neighborhood atmosphere. The staff was great! Being from Texas, it never occurred to me to ask for an air conditioned room. When I found out at check-in that we didn't have air conditioning, I nearly had a stroke. We were moved to an air conditioned room with no hassle by the very nice lady who checked us in. We plan to return to Seattle and will definitely stay at the Inn at Queen Inn again.
Don't waste your money
It was a horrible stay. They rooms are overpriced (I think that they do alot of mark-ups). They never value their coupons. They also only had one person working and they ran out of extra pillows and blankets. If you are going to pay alot to stay somewhere nice this is not the place for you. I give a big hands down.
After fifteen years of regular travel to Seattle, I have finally found my dream lodging. For price, location, and ammenities, it can't be beat. Two gourmet grocery stores across the street let you take full advantage of the converted studio apts with full kitchens. The rooms are small, but they have tall celings and big windows, unusually comfortable chairs and standard furnishings. A hugh walk in closet with a window allows you to store luggage, clothes and is big enough for a crib or toddler bed- a bonus if you are traveling with children, as is the on sight laundry room and the proximity to Seattle Center's acres of park, playland, museums and groovy monorail to downtown. The neighborhood is a delight- full of shops and restaurants. Is this luxury lodging? No....but then I can't afford downtown prices or downtown snobbery. This is a truly comfortable, bargain hotel and ideal for families visiting Seattle. Trust me, there is nothing better in the city at these prices-I've seen them all!!
the use of a few selective pictures masked the shabby reality of this DUMP!!when I arrived I overheard 2 couples checking out earlier than planned and possibly losing some $ as a result :they complained about noise from adjacent parking lots at night; noise from inside the hotel as the doors to rooms were old and thin and you could hear every word of conservations being held at all hours + the sounds of feet running up and down stairs and hallways; lack of air ocnditioning on the hot nights-late july 2002-and generally dingy conditions of property.. and I must have ended up in their rooms and found it a deplorable place and checked OUT the next daythis is the biggest DUMP have ever stayed in-the queen is dead-needs to be buried and torn down and something better put on this valuable piece of seattle property-
Don't let the name fool you
The Inn at Queen Anne is not a traditional Inn. It's an old apartment building which was converted into a motel. Our room was dingy and the sheets were dirty when we arrived. The hot water was intermittent at best, and live music from a neighboring club kept us up most of the night. The only way in and out of the Inn is by the "smokers' gauntlet" - a park bench flanked by two ash cans filled with butts. We would have checked out early, but every decent hotel in Seattle was full. Steer clear of this dump.
My Destination of Choice!
This was my very first time to Seattle and hoped for a fabulous time. To be quite honest, I really didn't think that this hotel could provide the service that I was expecting.....Boy was I wrong! The staff was very friendly and courteous and the rooms were more than what I had expected! Not only that, but I had mentioned that my fiance and I were recently engaged and that very night, we came back from a very long day of walking and experiencing Seattle. When we walked into the room, there was a bottle of wine and some fruit on our table. How wonderful was that?! We couldn't even have imagined such thoughtfulness from hotel staff. I would strongly recommend this quaint and charming hotel to anyone planning a visit to the Seattle area. This is truly my destination of choice!
Promotional descriptions sound good, but the experience was disappointing - this place needs a major facelift /renovation. Good location and staff were helpful but downers were dreary brown carpets, poorly equipped "kitchen", old painted cupboards, older bathroom facilities ... Also stayed at the Mediterannean Inn around the corner which was a much better experience at lesser cost.
Poor quality hotel
I'm glad I finally found somewhere to write a review. I would hate for people to think they were getting a good deal at the queen ann. The staff was rude. The rooms were not what we had arranged for and were very run down. I would recommend to pay a little more and stay somewhere you will be treated a whole lot better then queen ann.
Excellent choice - convenient, nice, and friendly
We stayed here for over a week, and were absolutely delighted with it. The hotel is across the street from Seattle Center, so getting anywhere in the city is easy. The room was nicely-sized, with daily maid service. The continental breakfast in the mornings wasn't really worth it, but there's always the Starbucks across the street. Staff were friendly and helpful, the location was excellent, and the price was right. I would, and have, recommend this hotel to anyone planning a visit to the city.
