We would stay here again!!!

  • 4 of 5

The property is perfectly located close to several attractions, including several piers, Pikes Market, the Aquarium, Harbor cruises, restaurants, entertainment, and about a mile from the Space Needle, Chihuly Glass Garden, Museum of Pop Culture. It was a good walk; however there is also a monorail which comes back towards the apartment. The apartment is very comfortable with a nice kitchen and a great view of the Sound. The bathrooms, however, are in great need of updating. The showers are very small and outdated with curtains making them seem even smaller. The bathrooms, on their own, are fairly large with plenty of room for modernization. The bedrooms are nice have somewhat comfortable beds. We had asked that the 2 twins to be made into one single bed prior to our arrival, but they were not. So we slept in separate beds.

If you don’t like traffic sounds, this apartment may not be for you. I mean, it is in the middle of a downtown city!! Just wear ear plugs! We did learn during our visit that an underground freeway is currently under construction and the existing above ground freeway next to the apartment is going to be torn down. So you may want to check for demolition status prior to your stay!!

Very good condo in downtown Seattle -would stay here again

  • 5 of 5

Overall, a very good choice. Best feature is the view from 15th floor - ferries coming and going, the Seattle wheel, and views of the piers. Nighttime view through South window and balcony is special. The condo was clean, well equipped, and good access to either Western Ave or 1st Ave by elevator. Short walk to some of the best seafood restaurants in Seattle and about 4 blocks to Pike Place Market. Two+ blocks to bus transportation to Space Needle, Chihuly Gardens and Museum, and Museum of Pop Culture. As has been mentioned in previous reviews, initial check-in, parking, orientation to layout is a challenge - but once you " learn the ropes" is OK. We left car in garage for entire 5 days of our visit. Ate breakfast in - lunch and dinner out. Beds could use some updating, window blinds are awkward, and living room chair needs repair for weak legs. Very nice visit - would stay here again

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed for 4 nights with our three kids and it was a great location with lots to do right outside our front door. The view was unbelievable with lots of city noise but we like that. Only thing that we would have liked to have seen was some better blinds 1/3 of them were missing/broke and with the incredibly hot temperatures this past weekend it would have been nice to block some of that heat. Also the condo it self needs some maintenance like the shower head that was loose and there was clearly water damage in the master bathroom cause the trim had water damage. We didn't use the kitchen once so I'm not sure about anything with the kitchen.

Reviewer Comments:

Phenomenal location, unbelievable view, supremely comfortable while being stylish and first rate. We noticed that previous guests were disappointed with the typical city noise 24/7 and this bewildered us. It's a city. It's noisy. Go to a cabin in the country if quiet is what you seek. This fantastic lodging offers security, the best view we've ever experienced in Seattle with the exception of dining on the Space Needle and so dynamically well placed for walking anywhere we needed to go we wondered if we should inquire about buying a loft there! The wifi was excellent, the concierge was delightful, the parking was supremely easy and can we glow about the location location location again? We just did. We'll be back.
