"Better than the original"
I had stayed at the W Seattle when it had first opened and found that it tried to hard. It was just a bit...much. However, it has been renovated and I think found a better groove. It is a bit more sedate with better designs in the rooms. The staff was professional--a vast improvement from when it opened. It was very centrally located--both for business as well as for tourist activities. I was upgraded to a view room and appreciated it. There are a lot of hotel options in Seattle now, but I find this a solid choice.
"This is a nice hotel if you can get a decent rate."
I've now stayed at the Seattle Four Points, Westin and W hotels and if all rates were equal, I'd put the W on top of the three. However, it often appears that the W is several times more expensive than the Four Points so I'd go Four Points. I'd avoid the Westin at all times. The W is a nice place. Staff is friendly. The location is unbeatable. The rooms are clean and updated. The shower is sort of disappointing but I don't vacation to shower. The beds are great like all SPG properties. High floors are nice. The rooms get really dark which is quite important during the seven months of darkness that Seattle experiences from October to May ever year. I'd stay here again just for the free water and the breakfast sandwich that the lady in the diner in the nearby YMCA made me on Sunday morning. Get it on sourdough.
"Recent weekend stay"
Recent stay at the W. great location- super clean & spacious room. All the staff we meet were professional & polite. Funky bar area with DJ on both nights. Parked car next at adjacent parking garage, as rate at hotel was $68. A bit high....
"First Class Hotel"
Very comfortable rooms. We had a great sleep. it was worth the extra (modest) cost for the view room. An excellent downtown location. We walked or used public transit for all of our outings. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. Definitely recommended.
"A Little Too Much"
Unfortunately, we were a little put off by the check in. We didn't arrive until late evening, but when entering the hotel, after travelling for hours, we were greeted by loud and pumping music. I could barely hear the front office staff. It was an immediate turn off for us, with the nightclub right in the main foyer area of the hotel. It was a little bizarre to be honest. It would suit some, but just wasn't for me. I do like a drink and a party, but not on entering a hotel after a long day, tired and wanting some relaxation' The room was nice enough though and we did have a good sleep, unable to hear the thumping reception/nightclub music from our room. The location is perfect for everything you need to see in Seattle. I wouldn't stay here again as we much preferred the Fairmont and the Kimpton over W Hotel. Not awful, just bad first impression unfortunately and not what we were expecting.
