This hotel is not for anyone who actually appreciates the sterility, anonymity, & tiresome consistency of a big-box hotel. The room furnishings are simple but tasteful, the bathrooms are small and showers sufficient but far from luxurious, the closets are enormous, the windows actually open, and there are old-fashioned hot-water radiators that quietly gurgle and clank. The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. The location is fantastic. We will recommend the Inn at Queen Anne to all our friends.
Do not stay here!!!

This hotel was not worth the money! They told my mother and myself that they had courtsy shuttle bus. They would drop off and pick up when the coustomer calls. That was true on the first day. The second day they would drop off but not pick up. (which made my grandmother 69 and just recovering from knee replacment surgery walk 7 blocks).The thrid day they would drop off until 5 and then pick up after 5 until 6. The windows did not have screens. If you opened the windows at night you could hear people and there are homeless hanging all around the hotel. Their breakfest was not good and if you decide to stay there make for sure you have everything because you will never see it again. Oh yeah and the front desk closes at 11 and opens at 6 so if something happens in the night have fun trying to find someone.

I stayed there for 10 days but I was totally disappointed with their service. Firstly the rooms are very crampy. There is not enough space at all, and secondly the devices like ac heater are not working properly. You will find spiders, flys in the room. And above all the Managers are horrible. Either they are in the wrong place or they need a lot of training in Manners. They should rather manage local Jail. The managers treat you like you are some piece of junk. They gave very worst treatment. So please don't even think of staying at this place anytime.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Inn at Queen Anne Hotel

decent service

the OLD look came out great.
the personnel was OK.
the neighbour was average.
the room was correct


from A TripAdvisor Member
My wife and I stay there every year, treating ourselves to this place with character because it's our anniversary. A cookie-cutter hotel it is not; when you want character and appreciate older buildings with history you find the differences and anomalies part of its unique character.

Oh, we do know to ask for a room on the courtyard (avoid rooms on the street side), and have enjoyed the same room several times (it has a pine tree out the window). The location is great for our purposes (attending the annual Northwest Folklife Festival across the street at Seattle Center, where we met in '98). We love the local restaurants, too, especially Racha Thai. The kitchenette comes in handy, and it's a block to great stores for food, etc.

Last time we stayed there we received free high-speed internet access because they forgot to mention the extra charge for it. No arguments, just a friendly offer we accepted.

So, we've never had a bad stay there, and I'm about to book it again. See you there?

Misleading and very disappointed

from A TripAdvisor Member
I was looking for a special place to celebrate and found the Inn at Queen Anne on the Net. It looked wonderful and I was going to suprise my husband with great plans that I arranged, for once. What a horrible disappointment! The room price led me to believe it was on par with other hotels we had stayed in Seattle. Nothing could have been further from the truth. It was old, dated, shabby cramped, a total disappointment. In fact, the closet was almost bigger than the entire room.

The staff went beyond the call of duty

from A TripAdvisor Member
The Inn could use a renovation -- and an elevator -- but we were please with its great location and value for the money. We were MOST impressed with its knowledgable and helpful staff, which went above-and-beyond for us. One of our party forgot an essential mediation, and one of the Inn's staff insisted on taking him straight to the Walgreen's downtown. They also took us to and from the Mariners' game. True, the rooms are old and small, but we found them clean and had little to complain about. And the staff -- you folks made our stay special! Thanks!

Save your money

The hotel's web site is terribly misleading. The room was small and dingy, though not dirty. It took three days to get a response about an air conditioner that didn't work (finally moved to a different room). Staff's standard response to any request or complaint was simply to shrug. Water pressure in the shower was nonexistent. For the price, I'd rather stay at a Marriott Courtyard, which at least tends to be reliable, if not luxurious.

Home Away From Home

from jojomukiface
The Inn at Queen Anne is our home-away-from-home when we're in Seattle. We have stayed at the Hotel Monaco and while it was fabulous, the Inn at Queen Anne has that intangible "something" that ensures we'll never stay anywhere else in Seattle again. We have been guests at least four times and have had nothing but good experiences. The staff is friendly and accommodating. A little different experience than most nameless, faceless hotels - but that's what we prefer.

Charming, homey place in a great neighborhood.

ve ever had. Stay Away!

from A TripAdvisor Member
I warn you of booking this hotel for your next visit to Seattle. Although nicely located, we encountered hostile, terribly rude and unattentive staff. We had a bee infestation in our room. Staff is not knowledgeable about their own services or city. At one point, we were told to go out and purchase our own iron, since the one's they had were all taken for the evening (we had asked ahead of time if we should have reserved it and they said no). To add insult to injury, they incorrectly charged us by adding on an unauthrized upgrade. The hotel has tainted our experience in lovely Seattle and I can assure you that I have traveled the world and have yet to stay at such a terribly organized and run establishment.

Terrible experience

from A TripAdvisor Member
I made a reservation here entirely based on a decent review from Frommer's. When I walked into the lobby, the desk clerk did not have the room I reserved, was very rude, and I actually walked out the door at 8pm without a backup plan. The place was that bad. The room I was shown was dank, cramped, and stank. Avoid this place. Trust me.


from A TripAdvisor Member
It isn't that I was expecting a luxury hotel, because I was more interested in saving money. And that I did. In exchange for saving money, who knew I also would have to settle for bad service all around . The thing I will always remember ( and maybe it was just a coincidence). But, every time I had to walk to the front desk to ask for something I didn't get in my room, or to complain about my room not being serviced during my stay, the manager I needed to tell all of this to, was walking out the door and, 'done for the day'. How frustrating is that, when the office mgr. has put in her time at work, and no longer cares after she clocks out??? I never got the impression she cared anyway, but to actually show and display that, was a shock to me.
Two big thumbs down on this place.

Worst Birthday present ever

from A TripAdvisor Member
For my birthday a friend and I decided to take a trip to Seattle and stay a few nights. This hotel seemed to be promising because they could give us a small kitchenette in order to save money on going out to eat.
When we got there we found that they did not have any pots or pans to cook with which we promised over the phone. To make it worse they couldn't find one, or acquire one for us. So we had to then walk to the store and BUY one in order to cook the food that we had brought with us. To make matters worse our toilet was clogged, several of our lights didn't work, the water took about 30 minutes to heat up and the ceiling looked like it would collapse over night. At the end of our 3 day stay all the manager would do was take off our room tax, and sent us home with our newly bought pot (we recommended he keep the pot for the room and refund the money we paid for it). For as much as one would pay to stay at this "vintage" hotel, they might as well stay at motel 6 down the street.

Top Local Tips for Seattle

one more thing..... forgot to add this: the breakfast was nothing special. some bread to toast, small styrofoam cups for coffee/juice, some small muffins. that's it.

Wonderful dining option in downtown Seattle. While wandering around downtown Seattle with my 11 year-old daughter, we discovered an excellent lunch spot - Market Fresh. This self-serve cafeteria-style eatery features a wide selection of vegetables, hot meals, asian dishes, fruit and more, guaranteed to satisfy diners of all kinds, including finicky children. The food is priced by weight, and is very reasonable. In addition, we ate our food in at a table in the lovely, spacious vestibule of the the building Market Fresh is located in, entertained by a pianist.

Fun meal at the market Try Matt's @ the Market - 2nd floor across from the 'Meet the Producer' sign.
