We recently stayed in this hotel and could not have been happier. On arrival the desk staff (Richard)was pleasant and helpful. We had been upgraded to a suite on the top floor with a lovely view of the city.
During our stay we found that all staff inculding the chamber maid, bar staff and anyone we met were helpful.
We would advise any friends or relatives to stay here if they were visiting Seattle and would stay here again if we visited Seattle.

The hotel is situated in the centre of Seattle nice neighbourhood, at walking distance to the Convention Centre. Other facilities (shopping malls, Safeco Field, musea, and Space Needle) are also nearby. Personnel is very friendly, hotel is quite luxurious. The room was well equipped and clean. Hotel restaurant is very nice indeed.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Mayflower Park Hotel

Boutique hotel for well to do

from Simontheeditor
Good points: attractive historic lobby, late check out, very helpful bellmen, location in heart of downtown shopping area (five blocks from Pike's Place Market).
Bad points: very expensive for what we got (with additional services such as bottled water in room charged for). Small room with thin walls. Charge for internet access not made clear until you had signed up.

Great historic hotel!

from A TripAdvisor Member
I love the Mayflower Park! My room was extraordinarily comfortable. Great furnishings, good layout and everything worked! (This is not typical in many hotels these days).

I love the location, too. Very convenient to all Seattle has to offer.

s great!

We just returned from our first trip to Seattle. We booked Mayflower Park hotel based on comments on this site so we thought we'd share our own experience to add to the mix. we were so happy we stayed here. Every detail, every request (early check-in, rollaway, family package tickets) was ready and waiting when we arrived. our room was fantastic and our children are still talking about the great hotel with TWO bathrooms in our one deluxe room. The location was great. Stores, shopping, and sites are all nearby or easy to access by monorail /shuttle. The staff was helpful and friendly (the concierge a little less so.) We had drinks at the bar which was nice but pricey. We had dinner at Andaluca's which was fine but nothing spectacular and somewhat slow service even when it wasn't busy. Overall, our stay was great and we hope to return one day!

Great location...great hotel!

from PickleGuy
What a wonderful find! We found this hotel on the internet and it sounded nice, but didn't know if we might find some shortcomings that weren't divulged on their web site once we arrived. We were pleasantly surprised, as the place was just as nice (even nicer) than we expected. A very attentive staff, a classic old-hotel feel, yet equipped with most of the amenities you find in newer facilities. The location was perfect -- we couldn't have been more centrally located. Just about 4 blocks from the Pike's market, right in the heart of the downtown shopping and dining district, around the corner from the monorail stop to the Seattle Center (it was down while we were there, but they have a shuttle bus operating in the meantime). There's even direct access from the hotel to the underground bus line that's free within the downtown area. The beds were comfortable, the concierge very helpful...just a wonderful place to stay -- with the delightful character from an era that existed before the big hotel chains arrived on the scene. The only negative was the bar/lounge that's adjacent to the elevators. The drinks they served were marvelous, but unlike the rest of the hotel, they do allow smoking in the bar. So the smoke odor tends to drift into the hotel lobby/elevator area, which was unfortunate (especially since, being from California, we're used to hotels, bars & restaurants which are completely smoke-free). It would have been nice if they could have separated the bar from the rest of the hotel with doors, so the smoke stayed in the bar and didn't drift into the hotel area. Other than that, no complaints!

wonderful stay

from rikki2213
ALthough the decorating of the room was a little drab and dark, overall the facility was very nice. We had a deluxe single which was a spacious corner room with a large seating area. THe staff was gracious and helpful and the price reasonable for Seattle in Season. Location is also wonderful as you can walk to almost everthing and or take convenient bus service.

Always Satisfied

from VictoriaResident
I have stayed at this hotel many, many times and I have always been happy. The fact that it is attached to a mall is great as I often travel alone and it is nice to be able to pop over to the mall without having to walk any where alone. The rooms are always very clean and comfortable.

Wonderful hotel!

from sierra1
We just spent three nights at the Mayflower Park and we had a wonderful experience. It is a neat old hotel with a lot of charm. The staff is friendly, and the concierge folks are very helpful. There is hardly any noise from the other rooms. Good beds; not rock-hard like some hotels. Oliver's, the bar, is a bit pricey, but so convenient (though it would be better if it was nonsmoking like the rest of the hotel). We had an upper floor room with a great view of the Space Needle. The location can't be beat, either. We walked everywhere. The concierge helped us rent a car for one day and we explored the Olympic Peninsula. My husband would have preferred staying somewhere cheaper, but he couldn't deny that we had a nice experience at the Mayflower Park.

Happy, happy

from barlea
Traveling with an 18 year old granddaughter, we were concerned two nights in a botique hotel might be too much. She loved the mall being connected to the hotel, she adored the play the hotel got tickets for (Millie), she thought it wonderful Norstroms was across the street and her favorite store, Ann Taylor's Loft was nearby. Everyone was very friendly (even cab drivers) in the city but the hotel staff and restaurant staff were superior. I can't think of a single bad thing to say. I really want to return soon.

Great Boutique Hotel!!!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
Great hotel with excellent staff!! Friendly and efficient front desk.
Called to confirm reservation and Reservations Clerk was extremely nice. Hotel matched rate found on internet. Room was beautifully decorated with Boutique feel. Andaluca (sp?) was Yummy! Full Breakfast for our kids under 10 was free, Olivers' Lounge had the BEST martinis.
Could not have asked for better location... we walked to pretty much EVERY attraction. DEFINITELY would stay again. Can't say enough!

Basic Room With No Special Employee Attitude

from A TripAdvisor Member
A very good downtown Seattle location with snobbish "attitude" at the desk, friendly luggage handlers, outdated interior in need of "modernization". Rooms are fairly basic, a bit awkward and small but nonetheless clean. Noisy ambiance due to proximity of the mono-rail which blurts out a super sounding horn at all hours of the night. A nice mall near the hotel, restaurants, Pike Street market and other places within walking distance. Avoid more seedy areas at night, located near Pike Market. A bit pricey for an independent hotel but I would definately think about staying here again if they improve their customer relations skill.

Top Local Tips for Seattle

Taxi to the Airport We were told that the taxi rate to the airport was fixed from downtown but when we got in the car it was not...but it was only a few buck more on the metre so no need to worry. Make sure you put on a seat belt, drivers are fast and seem to think trafic directions are just guides.

Great Clam Chowder Visit the Owl n' Thistle Irish Pub on Post Alley for a pint of Guiness and some great clam chowder. They also had some pretty good happy hour specials.

Transportation from Sea-Tac Airport If you are traveling alone, the Grayline "Transporter" bus service to the major hotels in downtown Seattle is inexpensive and only takes a little longer than the shuttle or taxi but is a fraction of the cost.
