SpringHill Suites Seattle Downtown/South Lake Union
Travel Blogs from Seattle
We arrived at Seattle after a long but uneventful plane ride. I got up at 4:30am because I still seem to be stuck on Indiana time. In fact, I am trying Jennifer's patience. Everytime she asks me what time it is I answer "It's x o'clock our time but it's y o'clock here." If I don't switch off of Indiana time before Japan I don't think it will turn …
Seattle is a great city -- a world-class travel destination! Situated in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, it has much appeal as a several day (or even week-long) stop especially when part of a circuit through other great sites in the region, such as Vancouver and Victoria B.C, or the Olympic and Long Beach peninsulas, or Mount Rainier and Mt. St. …

7/14/2010 – Seattle, WA
Washington is just across the bridge
from Portland. We stayed in the North Harbor last night so the
bridge was right outside the door of the hotel. We were in
Washington less than 5 minutes after leaving the hotel. During our
trip up I-5 we had …
We wanted to be able to see a few things here in Seattle before leaving for Vancouver, but also not wear ourselves out before our big day tomorrow. I woke up at 4 (7 EST) but managed to talk myself into going back to sleep then I was awake for good at 7.
It was an absolutely beautiful day here in Seattle. We couldn't have asked for better …

Best staff on earth!!!!!
We had a wonderful 2 nights at this very comfortable hotel.
The room was very nice and the bed was comfortable. I recieved nothing but friendly and professional help through out our stay.The staff bent over backwards to meet our every need regardless of how busy they may have been.
I can't say enough about how pleased we were with our stay. A special thanks to Cameron who helped us repeatedly and made us feel at home.
Nice hotel with big rooms.
This was a nice hotel with a great sized room and a good rate. The service was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was a bit bland. Waffles every day, but it was free with the rooms, so no real complaint. The elevators BING a lot on each floor, but the hotel experience overall was good for us.
Awesome! So Cute...
Such a cute Hotel!!! We purchased a room on priceline and were so surprised at how darling this hotel was. We were treated great and they even have a valet! It was our anniversary and the staff had a bottle of champagne waiting in our room. We felt very special. My 93 year old grandma joined us in the fancy breakfast room and one of their hostesses made us all waffles.
I loved the service, can't believe the price we paid, and better yet, we got rewards points!
Great Find in Seattle!
This hotel was wonderful! We had nothing be great things to say about the staff and the service we received! A true Marriott hotel!
We will be returning to this hotel every time we come to Seattle. The breakfast buffet was great and the shuttle into downtown was the way to go!
Kudos to this hotel for being so great!
Great value, nice staff
I was very pleased with our room quality. The room has a kitchen area, sitting room area, bedroom area, sink, and bathroom. It was comfortably designed and clean and bright. The complimentary breakfast was a nice touch. The staff are very friendly. We got this room on Priceline for a good price and were treated very well regardless. The location is not perfectly central, but there is a shuttle as well as nearby buses to take you downtown. I found the location quite convenient as it turned out.
Not a suite
I was unhappy with my stay because I thought I would get a suite, as it advertises that it an all suite hotel. I booked 1 night with hotwire and the next 2 nights with priceline. I was informed when I got there that hotwire and priceline customers do not get a suite. The room was ok, and a good value for the money, but I feel their name is misleading JD
Great value and service
I recently traveled to Seattle on business and stayed for a little sight seeing on the weekend. The SpringHill Suites was a great choice for me. I found the service to be excellent and the room provided more space than a regular hotel. The front desk was very helpful in providing me with directions to my different appointments and then for weekend plans. It was also great to be so close to the freeway and to downtown. I did notice the other two recommondations are from over a year ago...and this feels like a different hotel. I would recommend this hotel.
I have traveled from NYC to SF, and I have never had an experience like this...
Noisy location, few amenities
While we paid a fair price for a small suite, we will not be returning to SpringHill Suites Seattle Downtown. Our room was on a very busy traffic corner and so was very noisy. The bed was so hard we woke feeling like we had slept on the ground.
The included continental breakfast was passable at best...the coffee was weak and tasteless. The bar closed at 9pm (with customers sitting in it) even though posted hours were until 10pm. The manager made some vague comment that the bartender must have gone home early. We were also asked not to smoke in the bar...even though there were ashtrays and no signs about the bar being non-smoking.
A bad experience all-around. Don't think you're getting a deal with this hotel-you'll be sorry.
