Location location
Great location in lively neighborhood. Great restaraunts, coffee shops, and cafes. Location more than makes up for the age of the building. Staff does a nice job at doing the best with what they have to work with. Enjoyable

I loved that it so clean!! The neighborhood was quiet and beautiful. The only thing was that there were loud truck noise in the early morning.

Perfect guest room!
We love this little hotel! We stay here fairly often as we have a daughter on a live aboard boat in the marina down the street. It's like staying in her guest room! The rooms are quirky. We usually stay in one of the least expensive rooms so it is tight getting around the bed. This time we stayed in room 106 where the full bed is in an alcove with walls on 3 sides of the bed. It means one of us has to sleep up against the wall. The beds are very comfortable. While I was leary of the shared bathroom the first time we stayed there, it is fine. The bathrooms are spotless clean and they provide robes if you forget your own. Since the hotel is very small, I've rarely seen another guest and never had to wait for a bathroom. The neighborhood is active and has restaurants and bars open late. We had the window open a crack and it still wasn't annoying with noise--we didn't use the earplugs they provide. None of this is very different from the accommodations that we would have in a guest room if she llived in a house. And this comes with full use of the Athletic Club that owns it! This is a very nice, clean, affordable option in the midst of a very trendy area of Seattle. I highly recommend it, but not too much so there are still rooms available when we want to stay there!

Quaint hotel with great gym.
Stayed for one night passing through Seattle and thought it was very nice. The room was a little small but very clean and cozy. Bed was very comfortable. Also the gym access was wonderful.. would highly recommend.
