Historical Traveller Reviews of The Roosevelt Hotel

Great location. Great service.

from Peabody1117
We stayed at the Roosevelt Hotel for three nights in May 2005. The hotel is in a great location, within walking distance of central downtown, shopping and the Westlake Center.

We had booked deluxe queen rooms and were upgraded to king suites at no extra charge. While the rooms were a bit outdated, they were comfortable, spacious and clean. The matresses were a bit used, but they were in the process of replacing all of them as we departed. That shouldn't be a problem now.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The Concierge was outstanding. He made dinner reservations, arranged transportation and suggested things to do and see. I've never had service like that before.

I would stay at the Roosevelt again, without question. Great location. Great value. Great service.

My Choice For Staying In Seattle

from Travelnator
I have stayed at the Roosevelt a few times, but only in the Roosevelt suite. The price of the suite is equale to regular rooms at other four star hotels. Room service is great, the lobby and staff are nice. parking is costly so maybe check out the garage next door. Location fantastic, no driving needed to do things. Monorail very close as well. Old hotel yes, but for me class is NOT the brand new Hilton across the street. Its a hotel with a history and this is it.

Old, rude and Blah

from A TripAdvisor Member
The only reason we stayed here was because it had a jacuzzi suite. We wish we would have stayed somewhere else. The hotel had some charm, mostly in the lobby, but that was about it. The rooms were old, from the 50's. No fan in the bathroom, tiles were falling off and missing screws in the tub. Smoke seeped up from the floor below us and came through the bathroom. The receptionists were rude to us and didn't even tell us how to get to our room. Oh, and the $25 to park your car was just great. The only good thing about this was that it was close to the Cheesecake Factory. I would never stay here again. Especially for the price- VERY SPENDY!

Rooms not worth price

from A TripAdvisor Member
I tried a new hotel in Seattle (well new to me) and it was the Roosevelt downtown.

The lobby, corridors/hallways are extremely well done in decor. However, once I opened the door to my room - I believe 608 - which was a double it was like walking into a different hotel. The room was small, the bed seemed tiny, very little light, no comfortable chair or couch to sit on to watch tv or read either. Bathroom was so tiny you couldn't really close the door or you might not get out! Not much room in there for any toiletries either. However the bathroom did have alot of light in it. The closet door was off the rail quite obviously and no one seemed to care enough to fix it.

Location of this hotel is great and if you are meeting someone downtown - the lobby is a great place to meet. But staying here - for the price - not worth it. The rooms need updating - better lighting, beds, pillows (hard!) and bedding required.

We spent New Year's at the top of the Space Needle, and the only hotel for us was the Roosevelt. Its classic charm and sweet age made for a wonderful visit!

Decent room, but not impressed

from A TripAdvisor Member
My friend and I stayed one night in a deluxe room with 2 beds. I assumed this being a 3-star hotel in downtown Seattle that the room would blow me away, at least a little, but it didn't. I was most disappointed by the fact that the bathroom was TINY! The door wouldn't even open all the way. The sink, toilet, and bathtub are crammed next to each other. Barely enough room to put your toiletries anywhere and only one person at a time can fit. There were two medium-sized mirrors in the bathroom, but no full-length mirror in the bedroom. The room itself was fairly spacious with a chaise and ottoman, desk, and small sink opposite the beds. Beds weren't very comfortable. No problem with outside street noise and good location.

Superb - Downtown hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed at hotel at end of Nov 2004.It was Superb.All the staff i came across were very friendley/helpful.The room was perfect size for just myself.a huge double bed.I never got a chance to check out the gym...but with everything else being great i guess it would of just been the same.Thanks for hotel to lay my bones for my time there.Its walking distance to loads of tourist attractions,Space Needle,EMP etc...10/10

Perfect location

from Debkatie
This hotel is in a perfect location! It is walking distance to Pikes Market, Pioneer Square, several shopping malls, the airport shuttle stops across the street, the trolley to the space needle is a few blocks away, basically anything you need to do is an easy stroll. Price-wise it is a much better deal than any of the big names around the area, the Hyatt, Sheraton, etc. Its an old hotel, but that's part of its charm and it is nicely appointed. We had a "parlor room" which included a bedroom and a separate sofa/seating room with a second TV. Coffee service is included in the room. The bathrooms are small but manageable. The Vons City Cafe, which is connected, was also very good. The only downside I can offer is I could hear the street noise - cars and trucks, from our room on the 9th floor. I doubt the windows are double paned but, unlike many modern highrise hotels, you can open the windows here for some nice crisp Seattle air. Would stay here again!

Roosevelt Rocks

from hondar
This hotel is a very small hotel which is centrally located. Since it is an older hotel, many of the rooms are VERY small. However, it is very nicely furnished and clean with all of the nice little "extras", i.e. in-room coffee, 27" TV, etc.

We used Priceline and got the room for $60. We had been assigned a "double" which was impossibly small...considering we had LOTS of luggage for our Alaska cruise. When we asked for a King room they told us there would be an "upgrade" charge of $20 per night. We agreed since we had so much luggage. When we checked out they did not charge the upgrade amount.

We thought the restuarant was great! Not a 5 star dining establishment by any means, but a great place where locals go. Excellent salads and dinners and the best martinis. One evening we went there for happy hour and then decided to eat in our room. They prepared a "carry-out" for us on regular (not paper) plates w/real silverware.

We think it's a great bargain for Seattle.

The Roosevelt Hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
My 20-year-old daughter & I wanted to take a short vacation between school semesters and chose Seattle. I prefer hotels built in the twenties so scouted all the possibilities in Seattle and chose The Roosevelt Hotel... in part for the price compared to others but also because, of the hotels built pre-WWII, this was the one that had a room with two beds. We never turned on the TV which faced oddly sideways to the beds or used the wireless connection available via the TV. This is maybe not a room for a businessman although the room was spacious with two windows (that we opened), a desk and chair, an upholstered chair with an ottoman and a table with coffee and a coffee maker as well as two double beds and an armoire with drawers that housed the TV. The curtains absolutely blocked out the light so my daughter slept until I woke her. There was no refrigerator. (not a problem for us) The bathroom might seem small if you mind (no counter space) but had water pressure that massaged your head as you rinsed your hair and water that got very hot in an instant. The Grayline bus from the airport stops across the street every half hour. The location is great, near the convention center but also walking distance to everything in downtown: Public Market Place, Monorail, Pioneer Square, Seattle Art Museum. Highly recommend this hotel for someone who wants a hotel with taste and style, a room with old-fashioned comfort and pleasing decor and easy access to everything. A great hotel for someone visiting Seattle who wants a great hotel but who plans to spend most of their time out and about.

Top Local Tips for Seattle

Take a ferry Washington State Ferries are a great way of seeing Seattle from the sea without paying much for it. Just get a ticket to Bainbridge Island (or whatever other ferry takes your fancy) and ride to the island and back. You will need to get off in the other end, but you can just turn around in the terminal and come back on the ferry. Return trip does not take long and the views are great. Dress warm.

Grab the express bus to the airport It's only $10.25 and it's a big beautiful bus

Grayline Airporter Drops off across from this hotel (Roosevelt) at the Hyatt. $17.00 round trip.
