"3 strikes and W is out."
Dear W, I recently engaged business with you the week of April 16th, and I was disappointed. My room smelled like sewage. I inquired at the front desk, and the best your “welcome center” could do to resolve the stench issue was to send an engineer. The sewage was not coming from my room. I asked to be upgraded into a suite, and my request was declined. I unfortunately will not be staying with your hotel anymore. Thank you for the wake-up call. Kind regards,
"Great location, nice clean rooms"
Very nice hotel, has a good vibe. I had a corner room, which was excellent. The bed was great. The bathroom was clean. I really like the floor to ceiling windows in the room. And, they have good thick shades to block out the light at night. Would recommend a higher floor if you are a light sleeper as the lower floors seem to be a little bit noisier. Will definitely stay again.
"Luxury Accommodations in the Heart of Seattle"
This hotel is 5 stars all of the way, but the only reason we knocked off 1 star was our room faced an open sided parking garage. No view of Seattle, no sense of privacy, had to keep the curtains closed the whole time. The furnishings and decor are somewhat modern with an Asian feel. The bathroom was bigger than my kitchen. The soaking tub was large and the complimentary bath products were from a great line smelling of lemons. I have high nasal and upper respiratory allergies, especially when triggered with scent, so I was glad to have bath products of lemon scent instead of something floral. This trip was a last minute idea after our attempted Kayak trip on Orcas Island was a bust. (Rained out, and the tour took our money.) We were so glad to be able to readjust our mini-break at the W, switching from rustic to a luxurious vacation after our original plans had fallen through. I used to work in the area and the W is truly in the heart of Downtown Seattle, mere blocks from shopping, entertainment, and the water. The staff didn't snub us for coming in messy due to long travel times across the ferry and wearing kayaking trip gear. They were courteous, kind, efficient, and top notch. If Hubby and I want another luxurious stay in downtown Seattle, we highly recommend the W. Knocking 1 star as the bar is a bit overrated on prices for the amount of food you get, and the seating is too low to the ground and uncomfortable. Also, bar can get *SUPER* crowded during busy times.
"Great stay in the center of Seattle"
`I was in Seattle for a large conference and as an SPG member decided to stay at the W as I like the brand. The staff at this property are very nice and helpful. The room I was in was quite comfortable and I liked having a bathroom with a tub - something that is becoming increasingly unusual. I ate in the restaurant twice and the food was good and the bar tender and waitstaff excellent. It is an easy walk to just about anywhere you'd want to go from this property and I highly recommend it. I do agree with a recent reviewer that the coffee maker was hard to figure out.
"Location location location"
The W hotels are usually top quality - which this one in downtown Seattle is as well - the location of this hotel is perfect if you want to be within walking distance of all the sites - especially the Market. The Needle is accessible by walking to the Westlake center and taking a monorail ride which drops you off at the base of the needle - excellent
