Not surprising, tight real estate selections are leading to property prices that are on the upswing. Presently, Florida ranks fifth in the country for the greatest real estate understanding values, having an overall gain of 4.5% over 2011. A lot more optimistic, typical number prices of Florida homes showed an overall increase of 14.34% over 2011. These data certainly are good for the ...

... but not literally, blown by the painful pepper that littered the sausage. I left with a headache and no chance of a cold for a week.
I was soon destined for the Greyhound station to catch my bus back to Vancouver, but just as I left the hostel a bloke trying to get money from the empty hostel ATM asked if he could borrow my phone to call his card company. I explained that it had run out of money, as I learned yesterday, and that he should try one ...
... whole week , which was really nice because they really looked after us very well!! Our meal was absolutely delicious – there were several choices on the menu, so was a bit difficult to decide what to actually have!!
After dinner, we strolled around outside since it was still so very warm and calm. We listened to
some of the entertainers in the main lounge, and then headed for bed.
Was a very exciting day for us, and we were tired out!

Historical Traveler Reviews Red Lion Hotel on Fifth Avenue Seattle
Our stay was nice, the bed was extremely soft(my wife made the reservation and i think we paid about 10 bucks more for the feather bed) we had a great view of the market, Puget sound, and the Olympic Mtns. Only 2 bad things about this hotel, the water pressure in the shower is extremely low. I know they are trying to save water by putting the water misers on the shower heads, but i've never had one this low. They also had a pump system in the toilet, which didn't really allow the toilet to flush completely (toilet paper coming back up) so we had to flush twice usually. Other than that a great stay. if you depend on a concierge, dont count on it, they usually weren't there.
I can best describe the hotel as a Best Western [and there is nothing wrong with that at all] that because it has two sofas and a fire in reception thinks it is two classes higher. It isn't.
Several items outlined in the confirmation did not exist. It is bland and lacking in comfort. We got a very good reduced rate, and it is still too expensive for what it is.
I would not recommend it to colleagues
Very Pleasant Hotel
This Red Lion is very comfortable and understated. Room was nicely decorated and morning papers are delivered to your door 7 days a week. A last minute request for a rollaway was provided while we were out to a ball game - and at no charge. WIFI worked well enough and the downstairs restaraunt and bar was cigar friendly. Not as luxurious as the 4 star Elliott Grand Hyatt but very reasonably priced through Priceline. The staff was helpful. Of the several downtown Seattle hotels I have stayed in this one can claim the most accessable location to Pike Street Market, Safeco, etc.
Excellent location, comfortable and clean.
We stayed one night in this downtown hotel while in Seattle last week.
The location is perfect and the hotel is nicely appointed. The staff seemed pleasant enough and friendly.
There is, of course, a parking fee for guests which I find really annoying but is standard practice for downtown Seattle hotels. Other than that, I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone.
Perfect location downtown
Beautiful rooms at a great rate. The impressive concierge remembered our names and interests each time we came down and asked us about our prior evening. The hotel is in walking distance to all the major sites - you don't need a car. You pay for parking if you have one, but that seemed common in that area. I'd stay here again.
Great location in downtown seattle
red lion on fifth ave is located in the heart of downtown with the convenience of being just 5 or so blocks from pikes public market and the waterfront, a couple blocks from the main bus lines as well as one end of the monorail between westlake center and the seattle center where the space needle and EMP is located. this particular room had bathrobes for use as well as a feather bed top. the staff was friendly. may want to check about parking. enjoyed my stay.
Great hotel, excellent location
We wanted a good safe location, and that's exactly what we received. Near to all the mayor Seattle attractions, moderately priced, nice size confortable room, very clean. I couldn't ask for more. I was a bit apprehensive because I was travelling with two picky people and I read something about the service being poor. But after staying there (seams like I stayed at a different hotel), I strongly recomend it.
I stayed at the hotel for a conference...
...that took place over the weekend. The front desk called me at 6:30am on Sunday morning and asked me to look around the room for a sweater left there from the previous occupant. When I told the front desk clerk that she had awoken me from sleeping, she apologized and then asked me to get up out of bed and look for the sweater. I was appalled. The location is nice, but the rooms are small and the bed only mildly comfortable. It's the worst hotel that I've stayed at when doing the conference loop. Try something with better customer service and more luxury.
Stayed here two nights in December. Great location in downtown Seattle...walking distance to everything. Room was nice and clean, but bed did not have feather bedding as described in package and I had to call for the terry robes that we were supposed to have. Room was so hot the makeup in my overnight bag was melting! Talked to front desk and they said they would cool the room, but we never noticed a difference.
