Great location A review of Roosevelt Hotel
I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The location was excellent--within walking distance of all the main sites in Seattle. The monorail to the Space Needle is about a block away and the free Metro bus about two blocks. The Pike Place Market and the waterfront were about six blocks away. As to shopping, the flagship Nordstrom's store is a block away and other fine stores all around. The airport bus stops across the street, so getting to and from the hotel is no problem. I found the desk staff courteous and helpful. They had a notebook of menus from restuarants and were happy to call and make reservations for me. They also called taxis when I needed them. It's true that the rooms are small. Mine had a shower rather than a tub in the tiny bathroom.
However, the room was comfortable, clean, and nicely decorated, with a view in the distance to the waterfront. I didn't spend much time in the room anyway because I was out seeing the Seattle sites and trying the excellent restuarants. I will recommend it to friends and would stay there again.
