Marriott Waterfront Seattle
Travel Blogs from Seattle
Some say it is better to undertake a journey then to
arrive. Personally when the travelling involves
a 12 hour flight and changes of plane the best bit is definitely to arrive.
What can I say about today; we left Wellington early
Saturday afternoon and arrived in San Francisco Saturday morning and Seattle this
We are home and still trying to regroup. We are tired but glad we had such a wonderful time together. The day at sea was great for getting packed and doing some last minute things. The last night the Master Chef put on a dinner extravaganza and provided chefs hats for everyone and choreographed the …
A Day in Seattle
I think we just got lucky in Seattle. Sunny skies and mild weather made for great walking around this city. We splurged and stayed 4 nights at the Marriott Waterfront (okay, Sherri had free nights there). Sherri's favorite place was the Pike Place Market. Loads of stalls with fresh flowers, veggies, fruit and arts & crafts. Walking around the …
Life is great here in the Emerald City. Today we went on a tour to Snoqualme Falls and 3 wineries plus a chocolate factory. The tour lasted all day. Then we had dinner at The Capital which is right across the street from our hotel. We made a vow that we are off desserts for the next 4 days! Then the rain finally came and we walked quickly in between the raindrops on our way ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Marriott Waterfront Seattle
Seattle Marriot 4eva
This hotel was off the hizzel. The staff was awesome, and not to mention HOT. Gary, the bellman was so sweet n sexy I couldnt resist getting help with my bags. Josh was dope. I'll never forget u babe ;). The valet people were so spunky and bubbly. The beds were hella comfy. The views of the ocean were da bomb. The location was very convenient, seeing that I was able to stumble my way home safely in the middle of the night. I would reccomend this hotel to all peeps. Thanks for memories y'all!!!!Luv Jenni
My husband and I went to Seattle for Thanksgiving 2003, and we decided to stay in a quaint bed and breakfast. Once we arrived, we had some problems with our accomodations and needed to make a last minute change and look for someplace else to stay. After calling around, the waterfront Marriot offered a great deal and we arrived late in the evening. After a day of traveling and poor customer service at the b&b, we were tired, hungry, and I was a bit cranky. As soon as we arrived, we were completely overwhelmed by the excellent personal service. They basically treated us as if we were some VIP customers dropping huge bucks.
A friend and I stayed at the Marriott Waterfront this past weekend and enjoyed it. The hotel is in a good location, right on the water and just a couple of blocks from the Pike Market. The hotel is new and the rooms are very nice. The staff was very efficient and accommodating.
We have stayed at this new Marriott twice since it's opening earlier this year, and have been very pleased both times. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, the surroundings clean and elegant. The location is an obvious plus, although since we are from WA and travel to Seattle many times each year, we didn't need any concierge services. The rooms are immaculate and well designed, the beds comfortable. The Fish Club's breakfast buffet, while small, is delicious, and like the hotel, the staff is very professional and anticipated our every need. A truly top notch establishment, I would recommend it highly.
We were warmly welcomed here (the doormen and the bellhop gave the kids Tootsie rolls), and after checking in, went directly to the concierge desk to enquire about a suitable restaurant for dinner. Our man quickly suggested the Icon Grill, and picked up the phone and made a reservation. We had a great meal there, and enjoyed a complimentary appetizer of salmon cakes sent to our table by -- the Seattle Marriott concierge! Nice touch. Our room was a bit small for 4 but nicely decorated, with a spacious bathroom and closet. The kids loved the small indoor/outdoor pool and the hot tub (too small for our liking, and suspiciously foamy when the jets were on). Rather bare bones pool area, and no clock on the wall left us checking our watches to make sure we didn't miss our dinner reserv. It's odd that there is no access to a change room or washroom from the pool (you must go through the glass door to the fitness room). We loved the huge, free Sunday a.m.
We stayed at the Seattle Marriott Waterfront for a week while in town on business. The lobby is very beautiful and the front desk staff are very pleasant. We asked the concierge for recommendations on two occasions and she was extremely helpful and seemed to know exactly what we were looking for everytime. (I highly recommend Ivar's and Etta's for dinner!) The rooms are standard sized and kept very clean. I had a room on the second floor and never even heard the train from inside of the hotel. Valet parking is $25 a day but was worth it because of very little parking in the area. The Mariott is in a great location, adjacent to the waterfront, Pike Place and walking distance to downtown shopping/dining. We walked everywhere downtown (day and night) and never felt that we were not safe!
Enjoyed our stay at the Marriott - it is a fairly new hotel so everything is fresh and sparkling. The room size is average, and the balcony is standing room only. There is a train line at the back of the hotel as one reviewer wrote but we never heard a train. There is the tram that runs periodically in front too. The hotel is just across from where the large liners dock. During daylight it is fine walking about but at night you feel that you need to walk quickly. Stayed 2 nights at the end of August 2003. Seattle put on perfect weather for us the whole time. Easy walking distance to the Pike Place Market. I did find the accommodation prices to be high in Seattle. Perhaps it was the timing?
We were at this hotel for the first 2 nights (24th & 25th August 2003) of our vacation touring round the U.S.A. and Canada and what a great start it was. The hotel was brand new and everything was sparkling clean from the entrance & lobby, right through the elevator and up to the room. Our room on the Executive floor was not exactly huge but was very clean and comfortable and had a lovely waterfront view. The bathroom was bright (important for those of us who need to apply make-up) and clean with a decent range of products. Although most rooms have a balcony we did not, so it's probably worth specifying if you particularly want one. Larry, the valet who took us up to our room was polite, friendly and helpful. When we explained that we only had one full day in Seattle for sightseeing, he told us the "not to be missed" sights and how to get to them. Although it lasts one and a half hours, we took his recommendation and went on the excellent "Underground Tour". It was good fun and we're really glad we took the time to do it.
This new Marriott is top notch and provided a perfect stay. The hotel is not only new and beautiful, but the staff is incredible and went out of their way to be helpful in every way, from the front desk to the concierge. The concierge was actually away from her desk, offering to help anyone sitting in the lobby.
The rooms are beautiful and most have balconies with incredible views of Elliott Bay. The beds are so comfortable and have duvets. The pool is truly indoor/outdoor, being half inside and half outside and also has beautiful views.
All in all it was a perfect stay and we can't wait to return.
Best of the best
Just opened Marriott and its the best. Service was the greatest starting with the valets to the concierge. Each staff member greeted us and went out of their way to make our vacation memorable. It's location on the Waterfront, made it convenient to the restaurants, Pike Place Market and transportation. Each room was large enough for comfort and sound proof.
