Rated 3 out of 5 by alockhart Nothing to write home about
This hotel is conveniently located and close to public transportation which makes it attractive. The rooms are ok, but the towels have clearly been overused and should be replaced. The restaurant was under going construction and only a buffet breakfast was available at $25 pp which was extremely overpriced considering the offerings and that everything was cold. Given a choice I would not select this hotel in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LindseyT Excellent for the Business Traveller
The staff kindly provided me a large, clean, quiet room hours before I was scheduled to check in. I needed rest after a 6AM flight, and was given a very comfortable bed and blinds that provided total darkness. The large room desk accommodated my laptop and papers. The lobby could use seating near the door for those waiting for a cab, rather than standing or sitting at the bar. Very pleasant and polite staff. Thank you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by birchy71 Hotel worked well for a large meeting
Hhotel as expected for a large US downtown complex. Front desk staff excellent and efficient, quickly changing my room when I was placed in one which had not been cleaned. The room was comfortable and spacious. The food and conference facilities were very well run. Only complaint would be the hotel breakfast facility which is undercapacity and rather disorganized when I was there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KJ63 This hotel is in a great location
The Westin in downtown Seattle is situated perfectly for exploring downtown Seattle and Pikes Market. We took the light rail from the airport and it was a short walk to the hotel. We had a great view of the skyline from our room. The room is very comfortable. Nordstroms is a block away as is Macy's and other stores. It is a very short walk to Pikes Market and the waterfront. This is a great hotel in a great location.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Avalon Great place to stay
I have stayed here many times and it is always a good experience. The only negative is the restaurant. Previously there was a good place to eat in the hotel with a lot of variety. Now the menu is so limited that after a day, you have covered the menu and there isn't a lot of choices. One choice of soup - the same soup (and not that good) - each day and hamburgers. I miss the other restaurant - it was so much better.

Nice Hotel ! We had a beautiful view of the Space Needle and Harbour, especially spectacular at night.
Great location, close to shops and great restaurants.
Only thing we didn't like was the amount of chlorine used in the Hot tub. Hurt all of our eyes and we had to get out, both days we were there.
Staff friendly and courteous , eager to help.
Didn't feel any special recognition for being a SPG member.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TVDirector SPG Room Credit
My ONLY complaint is that being in a group, we do not get day credits for being a member of SPG.
I have been at your hotel over 2 weeks in the last month with more stays coming up in April and Aug.
I don't understand why we don't get the credit as WE are staying there. Airlines and other hotel groups give us the credit......
Why ask for my card when i check in and why be a member of your hotel?

Rated 3 out of 5 by RajSG Room Cleanliness
My room was not cleaned for the first two days of my stay. I understand the green initiatives and support that. I can use the same bed linens but I do expect that the house keeping would at least make the bed once a day. It is very disturbing to find after return from a day's work a room with untidy bed and uncleaned bathroom.There were two 5$ vouchers. I did not ask for them and have not used them during my stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Aly13 Great location in downtown Seattle
I attended a conference at this hotel and was impressed with my room which was comfortable and roomy enough to have colleagues stop by. I found the room quieter than most in downtown locations and the staff was friendly and helpful. I was pleased to find that this hotel offered guests a 'green choice' to decline daily housekeeping to conserve energy and water in exchange for a $5 hotel voucher. Nice Seattle touch!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Picky2 Great hotel
I am a very picky person. This hotel was fantastic. The decor was modern and great choice of colors in room. Our room was a city view on an upper floor. Checking in and out of hotel was quick and easy. Great location, and a very easy walk from the "lite rail station"' about 1/2 block. I would highly recommend "The Westin".

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sh14 Had higher expectation's
Reserved a Deluxe Room w/Water view for our Anniversary. Received a room with a view of buildings. My husband went down and asked why when we had confirmation of a water view and they had no more. We checked in at 3:00 the first time. They moved us to a room with partial water view. The Staff who helped after we complained was nice and took care of us, but to have this happen to begin with...we were disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by harris44 ELEVATORS
My family and I had 3 rms in July for 2 nights. The hotel was full and at least 2 elevators were not working. We waited for 45 minutes the first night for the elevator and the average wait was at least 10 minutes. It was a very good way to put a damper on the cruise we were about to embark on. No one at the hotle apologized or offered anything as compensation for the mess. We were VERY disappointed in this hotel.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Bobbie1959 Will NOT stay at this hotel again
Disaster starting with checkin. I was told by the employee checking me in; " our rooms are weighted and if you remove anything, we'll know" what a rude statement to make to welcome a guest. Then I had a letter on the desk, telling me that the maintenance crew would need access to my room 8-5 regardless of my "do not disturb" sign being out. Then the 7th floor down elevator button was out of order. Terrible stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Deb701 A wonderful weekend
We spend a long weekend in Seattle to see the tourist attractions, and choose the Westin over the other hotels, and this is why we would return!
•The light rail transported us from and to the airport (a block away from the hotel)
•Arriving at the hotel, we were greeted as royalty
•The staff went out of their way to ensure we would be on the same floor
•Our rooms were clean
•The gym was great
•The food was great

Rated 5 out of 5 by impressed smooth all around
Check in process very smooth. staff friendly and professional at front desk. 5 stars for them. Checkout fine except all I wanted to ask outside at the bell desk/doorman was where the airporter picked up. Bell staff talking amongst themselves. I was able to make eye contract with some of them but they didn't acknowledge and kept talking amongst themselves. Stood in line at the Belldesk just to ask the question.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jerry73 The hotel has poor features
Not what a top line hotel should provide.
Some staff did not speak english well. Did not understand us nor us them.
Paper cups for coffee? you must be kidding
Had to call down for coffee filters.
I don't know how many years since I heard of double beds instead of at least queens in rooms with two beds. My son-in-law was most uncomfortable.
Will not stay here in the future mostly because of the small beds.

My wife and I was celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and we took a cruise to Alaska for such occation . We decided to spent 2 days after the cruise in Seattle and my wife being a "Cleff d' Or" concierge in Las Vegas sugested to stay in a 4 to 5 stars Hotel in Seattle.
We choose Westin first the price it was not as pricey as few others downtown hotels and then the name.
Grande Finale Thanks WESTIN Hotel

Rated 2 out of 5 by Manju Not worth the cost
Regretably a very bad stay. Checked in found hair in the bathroom. made the effort to clean the tube and found the tube drained very slow. tried to find information about Seattle no phone book in the room. stayed for three nights coffee in the room free for the first night only according to guest services which gave us bad information on several occasions. The concierge information is old or they just dont update it. We asked for a reasonable, mid-priced steak resturant they showed us the menu and agrreed. When we arrived the menu prices were not even close to what they showed us. I don't believe it was bad communication because my wife and I speak very good english. Finally at check out I asked for a comment card and the receptionist said I would recieve an email. After a week long cruise I did not. So I am on the Westin's sight in hopes this reaches someone who is concerned.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TrentN Couple Operational Issues
Overall the staff were pleasant and attentive.
We had to change rooms because the HVAC wasnt operating properly. That was handled efficiently. There were a couple young brunette front desk clerks that seemed annoyed to address our initial concerns about the HVAC. GM handled it professionally. The hotel also lost power during our stay. So we had to walk 44 flights of stairs. Also not ideal but things happen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Daisy Stay & Don't Eat
New restaurant on the premises, Relish, definitely needs to work out the quarks. The burger I had was just okay, nothing special. I had breakfast the next morning and the service was horrible. After waiting 10 minutes for coffee I requested it again and the waitperson responded with " just wait a minute". Will not eat there again. But the hotel is in a great location and up to the Westin brand expectations.

Our first trip to Seattle, and so happy we booked this hotel. Took train to location from airport, so no car rental required! The room was clean, and very comfortable.
Not only is this hotel awesome, their hamburger won some kind of award in Seattle, and it was really, really good! You have to try it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by SPGGuestLA Not a 4 Diamond Hotel
Its central location is excellent, but I'm surprised that it's considered a AAA 4 Diamond Hotel. Onsite restaurant-inadequate in terms of variety. In Room Amenities--No robe, Poor TV reception, Outdated clock radio. Banquet Facilities- had 2 breakfasts & 2 lunches--food quality was quite disappointing. Definitely need a new toaster that works! For a group of 100, 2 toasters may also be more appropriate.

This was my first visit to Seattle. This hotel is very conveniently located within walking distance to both the Fish Market and the Space Needle.
The room was very clean and comfortable. I had an excellent view of the city and water.
My only concern was being upgraded to a better room but somehow ended up with two double beds rather than a King. I would have much preferred the King.
Otherwise lovely stay!
