Our day began with coffee from the very first Starbucks ever! It is located at Pike Place Market where we saw the merchant stalls setting up early in the morning. A different and relaxing scene at 8:00 in the morning, but teeming with people from 9 AM on. We snatched some tasty breakfast sandwiches from Piroshky, Piroshky, a Russian eatery. We …
... who was hanging all over him, and myself, made dirty words on a Scrabble board that had been abandoned on a nearby table. We all thought we were terribly funny, and I'm guessing the average maturity age present at that moment was close to 12 years old. After devouring the chicken strips and somehow remembering that we were all actually old people who liked our beds immensely, we said our goodnights and crashed. Lots of uninterrupted sleeping ensued.

After dinner, we walked around the city and ended back up at Pike Place Market where we saw a couple of people holding signs asking for money to buy pot since Washington has made pot legal. Quite interesting. And that was Day 1 of our Seattle adventure. ...

That's the first 4+ months. The next 2 months will be in Europe. I land in Brussels and plan to head south. Not really sure about the itinerary, but I plan to spend much of the time in Eastern Europe to save on cost and possibly film a short movie from a screenplay I wrote.

Historical Traveler Reviews Mayflower Park Seattle
One of the nicest hotels I've stayed at!! Great location too!!
I really enjoyed staying at the Mayflower Park Hotel and I found the service staff to be very friendly. In fact, I almost wrote a letter to the company because I had such a pleasant stay there. The room was very big with a nice view of the city, and everything was in walking distance so I didn't have to drive anywhere. The staff even went out of their way to give me a cheaper price than I had already paid. I've never had a hotel do that before! The hotel itself was older but very clean and I thought it had a lot of charm. The connected restaurant was very good as well! All in all, I had a great Seattle vacation and part of it was because I stayed at the Mayflower Park hotel!
Not a good experience
The hotel is old, the bar is overpriced, the front desk people are unfriendly, the elevators take forever, there was pee all over the wall in my bathroom, the water pressure is horrible, the valet took forever, the pillows were rocks, the walls between rooms were paper thin, and did I mention the unfriendly front desk people. Need I write more?
You won't be disappointed
I've stayed at this hotel several times and it cannot be beat for service, location and amenities. It's a very lovely, historic hotel- a lot of class and charm. You won't be disappointed.
Mayflower Hotel tops!
HIstoric old hotel with upgraded amenities. Walking close to the Pike Public Market and monorail to Space Needle. Excellent service, very accomodating. Would recommend and stay there again.
Was not happy
My room, with a guaranteed check in of 4:00, was not ready until 5:30.
Housekeeping items were neglected during my four day stay, and a charge to my bill for in room emenities that was incorrect was dificult to get corrected.
Nice place but lacked atmosphere
The Mayflower Park Hotel is a great place to stay for families. The location is very central in the city and it even offers a family fun package with gifts for the children. The service was good, and the rooms were surprisingly spacious. The only complaint that I have is that the hotel lacked a unique atmosphere. It provided a place to stay, but seemed to lack the appeal that would cause a person to spend time in the lobby and other public areas.
This is a great hotel!
We selected this hotel for it moderate price and the excellent reviews we read. We were not steered wrong. The lobby is beautiful and the staff extremely gracious and helpful. The Concierge even managed to arrange a white water rafting tour for us at last minute and handled all the details. The rooms are small but clean and elegant. And, The location is very convienent. We could walk anywhere in the downtown town area. We will definitely be staying there when we return to Seattle.
Room was nice- bathroom was a little small. Great views and fantastic location. Would stay there again but would ask for a larger room.
Best of the moderately priced hotels
My wife and I stay downtown every year during X-mas time to shop. This was an excellent location, room, and service. The restaurant off the lobby was excellent and very good with the martini shaker. I thought our room was better than the 4 Seasons and at half the cost. My only complaint was check in and check out was slow, although not unbearable. Certainly the best value I have found downtown.
We stayed at the Mayflower Hotel for our 10th Anniversary. Staff was exceptional, from being greeted at the front steps, front office, bellmen, concierge, restaurant staff (Olilver's Lounge & Andaluca Rest.). Everyone on the Staff asked how our Anniversary Dinner in Andaluca's was. I don't know how they all knew, but we thought this hotel was (above & beyond) all others. We normally stay at Hyatt or Marriott which have always been good but the Mayflower Hotel is "one of a kind". The location is perfect, shopping so close & the Monorail to Space Needle is just out a walkway at the Hotel. Room was wonderful, we did upgrade from standard (small), but price difference was very reasonable! What else can I say-we are going back this summer.
