"Great location and service!"
The W in Seattle is centrally located in downtown and has excellent service! Roughly a block to the UW to Seatac airport rail station and lots of great nearby restaurant choices. It will definitely be my top choice for future visits to Seattle.
"Good location, comfortable hotel"
We stayed here for a few days with the family. Rooms - comfortable beds, and comfortable couch that one of the kids slept on. Decent size room. Staff - The valet parking was nice, they had the car ready quickly when we needed to go out. Staff was very helpful getting our stuff up to the room quickly too. The front desk offered some good recommendations for meals as well. My favorite was the gentleman who brought up some extra bedding and shampoo. When tipped for the extra effort, he told a story about using tips to buy supplies for a quilt he knits. I liked the story added a nice personal feel too. Location - easy walk over to Pike Place Market. The area around the hotel had a good amount of restaurants. I would however caution against walking towards Chinatown at night, a good deal of homeless people, shelters and such on the way but it was about 5-6 blocks the opposite way from the hotel to Pike's place Market so just be aware of that if exploring the area at night. Pretty steep hill going down towards the water from the hotel, walking a couple blocks over makes for a much easier return trip.
"Good hotel, great location"
Great location, friendly staff, rooms not bad but beds could be better. Lumpy due to mattress cover and bottom sheet would not stay on. Overall I would recommend, we just wish the beds would have been more comfortable.
"It's a nice hotel but would reconsider with kids"
We went on an Alaska cruise and stayed at the W Seattle for three nights. The hotel is nice and well kept, but it's a bit too hectic with kids. Sometimes we would walk in and there would be a loud concert in the lobby, or too many people in a party mode. In conclusion, I would stay there if I'm looking for a party atmosphere, but not if I'm going on a family trip or on a business trip.
"Well-Below Luxury Expectations"
My partner and I booked this hotel expecting a high-end luxury experience. What we found was a rather worn and tattered, rock-n-roll hotel with a dated atmosphere. The room was clean, but again, a little worn. The service was okay, but our room was not ready when we arrived a bit early, but we were told it would not be ready for over an hour AFTER check-in time. We were able to check our bags at the desk, and we went for an early cocktail, but chose another place once we saw the kind of seedy bar. Room service was quick, but the food was just average. I have a feeling this outpost of the W brand is in for a major shakeup. The price of rooms here is high, and I just don't see why. We also stayed at the Hyatt Olive 8, and the experience was MUCH better. I would skip the W Seattle. You will not get what you pay for.
