Sheraton Seattle Hotel
Travel Blogs from Seattle
As this was the first time Lou and Gordon had been to Seattle we decided to take them first the Pike Place Markets and the gum wall. We were disappointed to see that they'd cleaned off one gum wall (the one that had Fiona's initials on it) however still impressed in a weird disgusted type of way. After this we checked out the fish throwing before …
After 40 minutes of a 7 AM walk on the pier outside our hotel, trying to verify that the marine animals in the harbor waters were, in fact, sea otters, I gave up and headed back to the room. Suddenly, on the dock right below me, one of the little buggers climbed out of the water and strutted around in full view. I was so surprised it took me a …
Today was great. Woke up quite late... nothing surprising here. First stop: Seattle's Best Coffee. Tried something different from the usual cafe latte, a Green Tea Latte. Inspired by a giant poster o the wall I headed off to the famous Pike Public Market Center. Btw got distracted on my way by a couple of neat shoe shops but I had to resist the …
Seattle was a two day stop-over so that we could catch the ferry from Bellingham, Washington up along the Western coast of Canada to Ketchikan, Alaska. While in Seattle, we went to a play, we had dinner at the Space Needle, and we did a food tour of Pike's Peak Market. Not bad for just two days.
I flew out late on Friday, May for Seattle. Thankfully I was able to upgrade into 1st class and get some sleep. I took along the book "Atonement" for the 2nd time on a vacation and once again it did the trick and put me right to sleep. I have to say, Atonement is one of the worst written books and stories I've ever attempted to read. I thought it …

Historical Traveler Reviews Sheraton Seattle Hotel
Nice touch from the Sheraton
Just returned from a weekend visit to the Sheraton. We were in Seattle for business but it also happened to be my birthday. We upgraded to the Concierge Level and was happy we did. Rooms are fine, beds very comfortable and staff very helpful. High speed internet access in rooms. We ate at the Pike Street Cafe Buffet and enjoyed it very much.
As a special touch for the occassion, on our second day we arrived back to our room and found chocolate strawberries from the front desk! Very nice!
I did a lot of research online before booking this hotel - this was the only hotel in the area that had no negative feedback anywhere on the web (that I could find). I was concerned that my expectations might be too high, but they were not at all! This is a really wonderful place to stay in Seattle. I got a great deal on a promotion through Master Card (stay 3 nights, pay only for 2). This, and the time of year (winter) made it quite affordable. I opted for a Tower room, and it was definitely worth the extra money!! They provide a lovely extended continental breakfast in the lounge M-F, but if you stay on the weekend you get the breakfast buffet at their restaurant, which is really nice and includes champagne! Between that, the evening snacks, and welcome drink, paying the extra money for the Towers is worth it. The view is better, and you also get to use the fitness facilities without charge.
One of the nicest "large" hotels I've ever experienced. The room was new and trendy, everything worked (a rare occurrence these days, it seems) and the staff was helpful. The location's very good, too.
Great Place to Stay
My husband and I stayed here on December 13th, 2003. We found it very nice. While we did not use the hotel amenities, it has a great location. It is across from FAO Schwarz, Nike Town, and other shopping areas.
Great Deal - perfect location!
We got a room here through Priceline and paid about $70 a night for a wonderful huge room with a view of the water!! The location was perfect, a short walk from Pike's Market and all the shopping, close to public transportation. The service was great - we would definitely stay here again, priceline or not!!
Great sized rooms
I was VERY impressed with my room, the customer service and the price I paid. I used priceline and paid $120.00 with all taxes per night. Only 1/2 mile from Pike's Market. I was so happy. The pool and work out room have a great view.but the pool was A LOT smaller than I expected. A very nice hotel.
Have recently returned from a 3 night stay at the Sheraton Seattle.
Perfect location in Seattle, very nice size rooms. 2 complaints: it costs $6/day to use their workout facility (which is small); plus car parking was $24/day (a little much, don't you think?).
Overall, I would highly recommend.
Very nice place
I'm a travel agent. My wife and I stayed here in July, 2002. It's a great hotel. We would stay there again. We found a decent rate - $129 - shopping around and considered it a bargain. We asked for a nice view, but because there are so many tall buildings around this hotel, that's difficult. You have to be on a really high floor or faced a certain direction. In our case, we faced the Space Needle, which was fine. The hotel is beautiful and it offers a great location. It's near shopping, fine restaurants and more. Of course, since it's Seattle, there are coffee shops everywhere. We enjoyed the hotel pool, which is indoors on one of the top floors. From the pool, you have a nice view of the entire downtown area. There's also a workout area that's pretty decent.
Really enjoyed this hotel!
Went to a convention at the Sheraton in 5/2002. We had been advised by a friend to ask about the top floors; since we were there with a convention, we had a convention rate that my business would pay. It turned out that upgrading the rooms was only $40 more a night, and the view and amenities were really nice. It's probably more expensive to be on the very top floor, but since they were out of the medium upgrade rooms, they went ahead and put us up there at no extra charge--those rooms included breakfast anywhere in the hotel, use of the spa and a lounge with internet access, fresh flowers in the room, and a killer view. We were delighted.
