The rooms were clean, and spacious, however the lack of Coffee maker in a city like Seattle was a stunner. Costly fees such as $35 for valet parking, and $15 (no wifi) internet fees were not surprising in a hotel such as this. What sways my decision is the unprofessional staff and bored attitude that so many of them had.

I frequently travel to Seattle for weekend trips and this will be my last at this hotel.

Historical Traveller Reviews of W Seattle Hotel

t mean great service

from kojack
We just stayed at the W hotel Seattle.Bad news.Dark lobby is suppose to be cool.Dark hallways are suppose to be cool.Is poor sevice suppose to be cool also? Room service is a joke! Wrong food . Cold food. Housekeeping @3:30. Concierge services non existent. But if you think that candles in a lobby and designer clothes on a young staff is what a hotel is all about, by all means try the W

Great Weekend at the W

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at the W in Seattle the first weekend of August, 2004 and it was wonderful. We enjoyed the decor, food and superb service. Our 14 year old thought it was the best ever and wants to return. Finally a hotel with wonderful beds - they definitely have the comfort level turned to max. My compliments to the designer.

Urban Getaway at the W

from shellhunter98
My husband and I booked a room at the W despite reading the mixed reviews on this site first. We wanted something "different" for a rare child free getaway to the big city. Our room was a 350 sq ft suite on the 18th floor (tried for a corner king but non were available). We really enjoyed the room; great bed, linens, and the window seat overlooking the city had plenty of room for both of us to stretch out with the Sunday paper. The location allowed us to walk everywhere we wanted to go in the city. We were able to laugh about the hotel staff. The physical surroundings are sophisticated but the staff isn’t. Hey folks it’s OK to kiss up to the guests, we’ll still respect you in the morning. We asked one of the hotel staff to suggest a place for breakfast, he gave us the names and locations of two places which both turned out to be closed Sunday mornings. However, when we asked for a late check out we were very graciously granted it. We enjoyed our stay at the W and recommend it to others looking for an urban experience.

Will not stay there next time

from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed at W Seattle Hotel for two days. Room was reserved by a company I was invited by to Seattle for consultation. I personally would have never reserved a room in a pretentiously trendy place like this. I arrived at the hotel around midnight and was confused to see a bunch of drunken naval officers and sailors at the bar, that is basically right in front of the main entrance and greets you when you come in. I thought I got the wrong address as to me it seemed to be a night club. The actual reception was way above on the second floor that you cannot see from the front entrance. I gave another round in my car around the building to confirm that it was the right address. Only after I spoke to a parking valet, I realized that I got to the right place. Which brings me to parking. If you arrive by your own car be prepared to pay $30/day for parking, as there is no place to park your car.

Everything was overpriced. No soda machine was on my floor. I was hungry and had a candy bar, a 12 oz can of cola and a small 12 oz bottle of water from a mini bar- that run me up to $14. When I asked for itemized bill for mini bar charges - I was given simple but firm "No" answer. So if you intend to use mini bar keep a tally, otherwise you might get charged for God knows what.

The whole atmosphere of the hotel is that of a vampire castle. Everything is kept dark and dim with only "mystery" blue lamps to light up the way.
The room itself was neither comfortable nor particularly clean.
Bed smelled funny. Total price for a corner room with a view of an adjacent building's wall - $150 per day.

So, decide for yourself. I am just giving the facts. As for me - I am staying Holyday Inn or Ramada next time.

s about it...

from A TripAdvisor Member
I found this hotel lacking in many departments. the worst concierge service i have ever experienced, and we used several of the concierges there. very small room with zero storage. i am a fan of the minimalist mid century modern style and was unimpressed by the decor. minimalism can be acheived while still providing storage folks! 3 days for laundry service and they forgot to deliver items back to us, unacceptable! gym is simply a small guest room with about six pieces of equipment, decidedly not hip. bad service at front desk, concierge and bar. room not as described. the good stuff: the restaurant is to die for but bring lots of $$$. the location is excellent, right in the middle of downtown. the drinks are fabulous if you can survive the hour long wait for one and handle the high price. the valets and room service people were the nicest employees there.those dark hallways were great, keeps everyone quiet, we never saw or heard a soul in the hallways. my suspicion is that very few of the people we saw packed downstairs in the bar/lobby area were actually staying at the hotel. i got the message. i will not stay here again, but i will visit the restaurant and bar. the fairmont olympic is right next door, think i'll try it next time.

word lightly

from Richard5210
My wife and I stayed at the W from June 18th through the 21st and I must say it exceeded all our expectations. From the moment we walked in we enjoyed ourselves. Everyone was very nice from the front desk to the valet to the bar staff to the concierge. As a matter of fact many of the staff remembered our names which to us was a nice touch. It is NOT the mainstream and I think that is one of the many things that we liked about the hotel. It is unique. Our room was on the 15th floor and was fabulous (and we dont use the "f" word lightly). The windows wrapped around the corner overlooking the city. It was nicely furnished and the bed was fantastic. Our entire experience was great. A bit pricey? Perhaps. Ill tell you this we will be back again and again.

Best Dog Friendly Hotel in Seattle

from Magnolia3237
Great Hotel - Great service and atmosphere. I live in Seattle and often times stay downdown at this hotel for the 'city experience'. Corner rooms are the best - extra space and great views.

I often take my dog and they treat her like a celebrity!

Pleasant stay at the Dub

from MarkG604
Just got back from a quick jaunt down to Seattle to catch a Mariners game, and stayed at the W for a night. After reading the wide mix of reviews on this site we were unsure of what we would find, but both my girlfriend and I enjoyed this hotel and would stay here again.

Yes, the lobby and hallways are dark and poorly lit, and yes, virtually everything in the room has a price tag on it, but once you get past that it's really a funky, contemporary, stylish place to stay while in Seattle. We especially enjoyed the comfortable king-sized bed, the romantic window bench with great views of the city, the room amenities and its funky style. We also had a great meal at their restaurant, Earth & Ocean - you have to try their incredible desserts.

We also found the hotel to be quite centrally located, within manageable walking distance of the football and baseball stadiums, Pike Place Market, and the Art Museum. The only real negative as far as I was concerned was the valet parking - at $30 a day it's a bit exhorbitant. All in all though, a good hotel.

Lousy housekeeping

from A TripAdvisor Member
We left our room at 8:00am only to return at 3:00pm. to a dirty room. When I called down to the arrogant desk staff. I was told "We have until 7:00pm to clean your room". I had to ask for some clean towels and soap be brought up. About 10 minutes later the housekeeping manager called and said that we could be next on the clean-up list. We declined because how long would we had to wait for that! The only professional staff there is the parking valet staff.

Nice place. Noise-protect yourself

from A TripAdvisor Member
Hint for those, who are conditionned to react to technological signals: the sound of arriving or departing elevators is set so high, that you'll easily get awaked by it - a couple of times ... The three rooms at each end of an aisle are okay.

Top Local Tips for Seattle

Sea-Tac Airport Taxis and Limos If arriving late in the evening, use the free-phone in baggage claim and ask for a towncar or limo. It's about the same price as a taxi at that time of night.

Excellent northwest restaurant http://unionseattle.com/. This is an absolutely excellent restaurant, with good service, nice modern decor, the food is super fresh and inventive (and I live in Paris, France) so at definitely good address in Seattle. It's near pike's Market. A great discovery. Price range 40-55$ for 3 courses with wine I would say but well worth it.

Check out 1st and 2nd Avenues There are tons of great boutique style shops along 1st and 2nd Avenues. If you want something more original than you would find in Macy's take a stroll down 1st and 2nd Avenue north of the shopping district. You'll find great shops and places to eat too.
