Flying Southwest to Seattle

A travel blog entry by skychi


My friend Kenny likes Southwest Airlines because they go where he goes. I like to fly other airlines sometimes to compare service. It is always good to take a look at the competition. I asked the flight attendants about the Air Tran merger. They said they never saw it coming. We enjoyed a wonderful four hour flight from Chicago to Seattle by …

Ten Tips on Visiting the Picasso Exhibit at SAM

A travel blog entry by skychi


As we were driving toward the Pike Place Market, I noticed the SAM (Seattle Art Museum) hosting an exhibition on Picasso Masterpieces from the National Picasso Museum in Paris. The National Picasso Museum in Paris is closed for renovations, so the entire collection is on exhibit in Seattle until January 17, 2001. Being from Chicago where we have a …

... attendants who are ever-present and willing to go chasing after your every need

When our Flight Attendant (whose name was Dirk or something equally soothing) told us in melodious tones that we were landing in Dubai, for the first time in my life, I was sad. My episode of "Modern Family" wasn't over and my massage cycle hadn't ended. For the first time in our lives, we were sad to get off the plane.

If you prefer to really have a day with report then homes in the village is definitely an alternative. The houses within the historical downtown are similar to the Victorian or possibly Mediterranean model and new competence. Single-family houses with yards in front ...

    Great Hotel & Allows Pets!!


    All La Quinta Hotels allow pets and we had a small dog coming with us to Seattle, so we decided to stay here, also because La Quinta doesn't charge extra for pets and we were on a budget. We were really pleased with this hotel, having stayed at the Travelodge down the street just the night before and being very disappointed, we enjoyed our stay here at the La Quinta and ended up staying here 2 nights. Our room was really big,clean and warm and cozy. We had a balcony and a small couch in the room. The room colors were very warm and inviting. The TV had many cable and movie channels. The staff was very corteous and provided us with a map and directions. There is also free continental breakfast and a dining room where you could eat and a computer downstairs that you could use for free to print stuff. There is a hot tub. There is also a little conveience store next to the front desk. The location is also very close to the Seattle center/Space needle and within 1-2 miles to downtown and the Pike Street market. I highly recommend this place for people with pets and for those on a budget.

    Good Price, But . . .


    Stayed here Oct. 14-19, 2005, while attending a convention that was not paid for by my employer. Cost was the prime consideration, plus reasonable walking distance to the convention center. Paid $80/night, which was half of what the meeting's "approved" hotels cost, most of which were clustered close by the center. La Quinta was about an 8 block walk, which turned out to be very easy, around 12 minutes. Never felt unsafe along the route, which passes by the police precinct headquarters. The low price comes with some caveats. This is a tired looking hotel of old design, both exterior and interior. As is our custom, we asked for a room as far from elevators as possible. In this case, that is advice to be heeded. These were surely the noisiest elevator doors I have ever encountered, opening and closing with a freight-elevator-like bang. I pity the people whose rooms opened on the elevator lobby. However, the rooms at the ends of the halls, like ours, were very quiet and no elevator or other sounds intruded. The room we had (again, an end corner room) was quite large, with two queen beds, two chairs, small table, and a credenza for the drawers and t.v. All were adequate, but well-used and dated. Good curtains to block out any street lights. Walls were much in need of repainting, with many scrapes and marks marring the appearance. Bathrooms were quite basic (no style at all), but adequate. We liked having two sinks: one inside the bathroom and another just outside it. BUT: the mildew on certain tile areas, in the cracks of the wallpaper, and on the ceiling were deplorable. The desk staff was cheerful and efficient, no problems with the reservation. There's internet access only at a machine in a room off the entry, but it worked fine. They also provide a printer and paper. Breakfast came included with the room, and it was in a large room with many tables, t.v on in the corner, and provided make-your-own waffle machines, a nice touch, in addition to the usual cereals, toasts, bagels, yoghurts, boiled eggs, juices and coffee. If you regularly eat breakfast, and otherwise would have to pay for it, this is another bonus consideration of the price of the room. In sum, the price is right, given the alternatives, but don't expect anything grand. We used the money we saved to eat at some of Seattle's many fine restaurants.

    Met our expectations


    I wasn't sure what to expect after the mixed reviews of this hotel, but I was plesantly surprised. Our room was clean and up-to-date. There was a living room with sofabed, desk, tv, etc. as well as a mini bar with sink and fridge. The bedroom was separate with a door, which is what we wanted with 4 of us in the room. The bathroom was small, but adequate for a 1 night stay. We actually had a nice view out the big windows and a great view of the Space Needle. Our room was ready when we checked in. The continental breakfast had a lot to offer... even make your own waffles. This is not a fancy hotel, but great for families and everything was perfect for what we needed.

    Pretty good place for the price....


    We just got back from staying 4 nights at the LaQuinta in "downtown" Seattle.... We had a coupon from Southwest Airlines which got our room cost down to $60 a night -- so THAT was our main reason for picking this place. It is somewhat a hotel where "you get what you pay for..."

    10-15 minutes walking distance from all major sites!


    I needed to stay over in Seattle for a short conference in Downtown Seattle. Via the internet I found a great deal for a king size bedded suite for $99/night. The livingroom was spacious with nice chairs, a nice queen size sofa-bed, a kitchenette with dish-washer, toaster etc! Free coffee and tea were available 24/7! Bedroom was ok.

    Worst stay ever


    My boyfriend and I had booked 4 nights at LaQuinta downtown, but after the first night, we decided to hit the road and found a better hotel only $10 more per night.

    Not Worth the $$


    I have to agree with all the reviews here. Not being familiar with the layout of Seattle, I assumed this hotel was close to Downtown. Its about 5 blocks or so. Not a problem, as the curtious front desk woman called us a taxi.

    Sleepless in Seattle


    This was the sort of experience I would have expected if I had paid only half the price or less.

    A wee gem


    We happened on this hotel after a bad experience at the Kings Inn.

    This hotel is great. The room we had was bright, clean and spacious. It had a microwave, fridge and coffee maker. Fresh coffee was provided daily. A full breakfast was offered and the facilitity to make your own delicious waffles. In the evening they served freshly made chocolate chip cookies (not for anyone on a diet).

    The hotel had an excellent spa and sauna.

    Very friendly staff.

    All in all a good hotel to stay in.
