Wonderful hotel with plenty of charm and character and updated to feel modern and newer. Amazing location and view of the water, islands, and activity going out. Our room was a little far down the hall, with our view partially obstructed by a steel platform in the water - not very attractive. That said, the room was lovely, the fireplace was a nice touch. The bar and restaurant - was the Place to Be. The food is Amazing.Comment of W. Michael , United States the 2016-10-10
We stayed at the Edgewater for one night. We went on a cruise to Alaska the following morning. The hotel was next to our cruise's pier and we took a 2 minute walk from the Hotel to the cruise ship! Their staff were very attentive, courteous and friendly. Everybody made sure to say "hello" every time you walked past by them. Lobby area was nice & cozy and it had amazing views of the bay. We were within walking distance of plenty of Seattle's landmarks. Their restaurant was pretty good. All in all I definitely recommend this hotel and would stay there again if I ever come back to the Seattle area.Comment of D. Yusseff , United States the 2016-06-22
For our romantic getaway, my wife and I found this hotel absolutely perfect.Comment of B. Matthew , United States the 2014-05-15
"Exceptional Hotel with excellent service"
Great hotel, clean, modern, exceptional service, spacious room. Restaurant food was delicious. Bar was fantastic, the views are spectacular on the waterfront. For those who do not know, this hotel has some amazing history, with rock bands from the Beatles to Led Zeppelin who all stayed there in the height of rock and roll.
"Corporate Event Review - We "spared no expense" and were burned."
This is a review for a corporate event held at the hotel. I arranged all the details for 20+ people down to the menus, but I did not personally attend. Despite bad experiences - the hotel is posh and lovely. The food is delicious, but overpriced. Try the fried asparagus. It's a revelation! I have planned 6 other corporate events at hotels around the country, and although this is a beautiful hotel, I had by far my worst experience with the event planning staff. The best way I can describe it is: They just did not give a $%! We were under contract for a 3-DAY event - $20K – and I would expect A LOT more. I really wish they would have gone out of their way at all for us. An example: we wanted to send some folks on a ‘field trip’ where they would need a chartered bus/van. I made that clear to the event planning staff (the woman in charge!) and they said “OK.” No suggestions of who to use. No offer to put us in touch with anyone. As a client and someone paying them a stupid amount of money, I expected to not have to do ALL the work myself. In 6 years, this is the ONLY time that has happened. I asked for recommendations/plans to send people to a winery: I was given a ¼-assed list of local wineries. We signed a contract for the approximately 7 months early, but I had to contact them to get planning started ~1 month before the event. As the planning went along, the head of event planning was 75% helpful. I had to beg to get them to provide us any information about their menus for meals and snacks. We had planned dinner in a private room in their restaurant that I was told was on hold for us that was booked out from under us. Then they offered two tables across the dining from from each other, but the option that the attendees would get up, walk through the dining room and order their own drinks – NOT have them brought by serving staff. What the what'! Why they would be OK with 25 large guys wandering through their dining room to the bar and back I don’t understand. (Remember, we paid them ~$20K, we weren’t skimping.) The hotel is lovely, but I would not send anyone there. It’s overpriced. The staff is largely very nice, but can be pretentious; that’s what you can expect from posh hotel. I would never hold another event at the Edgewater Hotel. I’ll stick to private hotels/resorts who really put an effort in. (As far as chain hotels go, for corporate events, Loews is where it’s at!)
"Amazing, feel like noble"
All staffs are friendly and nice. Valet parking staffs are nice and helpful. Beds are very big and comfortable. The bathroom is so large. The first place is so cozy. The welcome stuff bear give my kids big surprised.
"Excellent view of a beautiful sunset from the comfort of your room!"
Standing outside on the balcony was almost like being on a boat. the water was right there. Excellent view of a beautiful sunset from the comfort of your room. Top it off with Fireplace in the room! Very private looking out on the water. the balcony was enclosed so you can't see your neighbor nor them see you. I personally love the soft cozy feel of the room with a touch of cabin wood feel. It is close to everything so you don't have to travel far if leave the hotel. The food in the restaurant was great. We were only there for one night so we never left. If your into it, the bar will sometimes even have live bands. The walls did seem thin though. We had some very loud people right above us that seemed like they were dropping cinder blocks above us and a child with a high pitch in the hall sounded like they were in the room. (this in not a bias opinion, I have kids have stayed in hotels in over 10 different counties)
"Terrible Beds and charge "Resort Fee""
The Edgewater Hotel is a unique property, but I'm not sure I would recommend it to a friend. We booked a four night stay there because we received a decent rate for Seattle. Due to this fact even though we were spending four nights and the hotel wasn't that busy we were given a room way down the hallway without any kind of view, we had requested a higher floor and view and the front desk wasn't very accommodating. You could tell the hotel wasn't that busy for this time of the year (early Jan.). The hotel bar/restaurant is a nice place with a fun happy hour in the late afternoons, we were there a couple afternoons. I want to thank the wait staff, they did a great job and deserve a 9 or 10 on service. When the second beer I ordered was completely different from the first that I was served (I liked the first one) our server was great and went back to the bartender and asked if he gave me the wrong beer. This caused quite a stir with the two male bartenders that were working at that time. They insisted it was the same even though the second beer looked and tasted totally different than the first, my server agreed. It wasn't that big of deal at all, but the bartenders were in total view of me and were acting childish about the whole thing. They kept complaining to our server and put her in a bad position, I could see and hear the whole conversation they were having. Neither one of the bartenders were busy at all, but they were just arrogant enough not to come out and talk to me about it. I felt really bad for our server, but it was embarrassing how they handled it. When the server came over an apologized to me again and tried to explain the difference in the beers that I received as she was told by the bartenders I just mentioned that everything was fine and it wasn't a big deal. I did mention to her that maybe the bartenders should come over and explain it to me in person and quit putting her in a tough spot. She smiled and said that is what she also suggested to the bartenders, but they didn't want to have anything to do with that. I wasn't upset until I could witness how they were both acting and how they treated my server. I am own and operate several businesses and i wouldn't put up with that kind of attitude, especially in the service industry. Needless to say we didn't feel welcome there and decided to go elsewhere in the afternoons for drinks and food. Those two guys would be looking for other employment if I was the manager. The room we had wasn't okay, it's definitely is showing it's age. But the mattress on the bed was so old and worn out you could see it didn't even lay fat on the bed anymore. It was squishy and offering hardly any support at all, I don't have back issues at all but after three nights in that mattress I was struggling all day long with my back. Check out the Westin's beds, this hotel is usually more expensive than the Westin. Finally, when checking out we inquired about all the extra taxes and fees per night on top of our rate. There were numerous taxes and fees, glad we are able to help the city of Seattle finance their city. But the big surprise is that the Edgewater charges a $14.00 per night resort fee. I asked the front desk clerk "why"' Well she said the internet and other amenities, I said it certainly didn't include free parking, because it costs over $40.00 a day for the privilege of parking on their lot. And they don't have a pool or anything special a "resort" would have. So basically you are getting worked over for another $14.00 a day, we didn't even need the internet because our phones worked fine. This is a hotel, not a "resort". Plus it is the dumbest extra fee out there. One thing else you should know is that every time we purchased a drink or food in the restaurant (this might be for all purchases) they are adding on additional tax from the hotel to help maintain the condition of the hotel. So what does my room rate cover' I'm guessing the owner of this hotel also owns and airline. There are other great hotels in Seattle that are more worth the money (and the extra fees). Do yourself a favor if you can and book airbnb.
