"Perfect location for tourists"
This was my first time staying at a W and my expectations were met. It was quite pricey but considering it is summer time on a Saturday night, it was fair. We were in the wonderful suite. It had a long hallway which i thought was a waste of space, i didn't feel like we were in a suite. However, i was satisfied with the room. We had a nice view of 4th avenue and also mount baker. Room was spacious and comfortable. I do have to say, the bathroom would benefit from some upgrades. Other than that, very clean and love the amenities. Walking distance to Pike place market and downtown where the shopping is. The walk is very steep to pike place though so it's a good idea to go first to pike and walk diagonally up to downtown, and back to the hotel on 4th... that way you avoid the steep hill. Restaurant was quiet on a saturday night but service and food were both good. Had breakfast in the same restaurant as well and it was great. Prices very reasonable for a hotel. As a gold member, i had a free welcome drink which was awesome. It would be better if we got 2 since we only got one drink between the two of us. Nonetheless, a great experience at the W Seattle.
"Surrounded by lawyers and gamers"
I was on business for a few days, travelling on my own. The hotel is well located, walking distance to my meeting and to the market and other attractions, and the sea front. I had a beautiful room where I spent one day working in advance of my meeting. The facilities were great. The bar is nice, sometimes busy, sometimes boring. Didn't eat at the restaurant. Staff very friendly, room clean and nothing to complain about.
"Generic hotel, thinks it's better than it is"
I'd always looked forward to staying in the W, but was deeply disappointed. The lobby is pretty, but badly designed. Imagine being told to take your luggage back out onto the street, go around the corner on the sidewalk and in a side door because there is no internal step-free access to reception. There is a price ticket on everything in the room. $4 for a bottle of water, $15 for 1 day of wifi. It's as if the Marriott had hired a younger designer and convinced themselves that they were fantastic. When in fact it's the same generic experience, but with extra hype.
"Big hotel with Boutique feeling"
Of course it's trendy and artistically designed, but without the hipster attitude. Check in staff were friendly, and upgraded us because of my spg status. They gave us great recommendations for restaurants and local fun. Lobby bar scene was hopping but not insane on a Saturday night.
"Great location, great rooms!"
First, I am a Platinum member so I got an upgrade, hence my statement that the rooms are great! I got a corner room which had windows on two sides on a high floor. The location is great, within 4 blocks of Pike's Place, and the light rail is a block from the hotel so you can get to various parts of Seattle without a need for a car. Lots of buses too right outside the hotel.
