We were pleasantly surprised by the Holiday Inn location. Really good value for a quick overnight trip while showing friends Seattle.

The front desk agent was very kind in finding us an open restaurant on Christmas Eve within walking distance of the hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by retiredwrgl Comfortable stay
The Seattle Holiday Inn provided good accommodations for our stay. We had activities planned at the Seattle Center for the weekend and the hotel is very convenient to the Center. We were also able to get downtown easily and meet friends for lunch.
The room was clean and everything was in good working order. On the negative, the in-room complimentary coffee was not nearly as good as I expected from the city which prides itself as the home of Starbucks, and many other coffeehouses.
I was also misled by the hotel website's description of the restaurant. The restaurant is across the driveway from the lobby. In our visits to it and its lounge, there was no indication of an affiliation with the hotel.
The front desk staff were very personable and greeted me by name and rewards status. The housekeeping staff were also very pleasant.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LittleKing1 Short weekend stay - ideal location
Staying on a Saturday night. Great location, cannot be beat. Room was clean. Reserved a suite, so I could not be "upgraded", as a platinum member often is. Check in staff offered to provide free parking for the night, instead ($10). I accepted, only to see that parking fee had not been removed from bill, the next day. Only other gripe was that there was NO bottled water in ANY vending machine in the entire hotel. Out of 7 total floors, only 1 floor had a working vending machine, and it was out of water. Called front desk, and they ran a couple of bottles up...nevertheless...just an odd experience. How do that many machines go out of order, in an above-average hotel chain?
Aside from this, hotel was actually a good spot to stay in for a night. Workout a few kinks, and I'd give 4 out of 5 stars.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rungirl Marathon weekend
We stayed here to be close to the marathon start/finish. The staff was truly great. We got room service for breakfast and instead of just sending up a bagel, they called to ask our preference. They were forgiving that we checked out a little late because I'm such a slow runner :-). And when we left something in our room and called 40 minutes later they sent someone to find it and had it waiting when we came back. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fun29 Comfortable and very clean and close to space needle
The living area was exceptionally clean and we had a very good stay here. The extra bonus was that it was a few blocks to the space needle and Sky Restaurant, as well as the duck land and sea tour. Since we didnt want to drive to the downtown area since it was close by, we hopped on a bus very close to the hotel ( I believe it was the No. 40 bus) and it took only 5 minutes or so by bus to the downtown area right in front of all the major shopping as well as the underground tour if you wish to take it etc. Definately would recommend this hotel.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Antoinette33 Dirty and rundown
As a gold elite IHG rewards member, I can say from my many stays at Holiday Inns that this was the worst experience to date. This hotel was very dirty, the white sox that I wore in the room became black from the dirt on the carpet. The interior of the building was old, in need of updating, and smelled like bug spray.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Euphamia Excellent Staff and clean rooms
This hotel is a great location for Seattle-close to downtown and the Space Needle, walkable to the piers.
The staff were very good and had excellent recommendations for restaurants. The restautant at the hotel is good but has a very limited menu. The staff always greeted us when we came back in. Housekeeping was pleasant and efficient but i think they were a bit short staffed.
My only issue is billing. I called the hotel to see why my rate was so much higher and was told the Manager would call me back that day. That was 2 days ago so i am assuming i will not recieve that call. This is not good service.
Outside of that It is a good place to stay but i would try somewhere else next time because I do not like being told something then not having it handled.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dgaz1122 Friendly staff!
The staff at Holiday Inn was perfect from the beginning. I was given a map of the area and great recommendations for dinners and places to go (Seastar and Flying Fish were amazing!). Every time I entered and exited the building the staff was very friendly. When it was time to leave, a car service was called instead of having to take a taxi to the airport. The room was very nice and comfortable. I would highly recommend and will definitely return some day.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bo7612 A very good place to stay in Seattle
We came there early in the morning, but the hotel front desk staff found us a room so that we can move in immediately. The room is clean and very nice with small living room. The location of the hotel is great, walking distance to Space Needle and Chihuly Garden, where we have a lot of fun. Definitely would like to come back next time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Comfortable and convenient stay
-Friendly and accommodating staff.
-Clean / modern room.
-Walkable distance to Pike Place Market (about 15-20min).
-We walked everywhere and only took a cab one evening when I was wearing heels. We even walked to the International District/Chinatown, but it was a little bit of a trek. Do-able if you're in-shape and enjoy the journey. If you're just trying to get to the destination, probably best to look into a cab or public transit options.
-About $10 cab to West Lake light rail station, then $2.75 per person light rail ride to Sea-Tac airport.

Everything was excellent except for parking. Coming in a large SuV or truck makes it difficult to find an appropriate parking space in underground garage...i took two spots near the end of garage to avoid sticking out too much. Lot made for compact cars only? Otherwise great!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by chadou23 Good Location, No Attention to Rewards Members
Upon check in, the least I receive at facilities all over the country is a bottle of water. There was nothing offered. When I asked, the gentleman said oh yeah, hold on, and went in back on got me bottle of water.
Also, he gave me a free parking pass, although I told him I was not driving a car. I asked if I could switch the parking pass with free breakfast pass... nope. By the way, all holiday Inn's have provided me free breakfast passes for the length of my stay.
I had the front desk order me a taxi. I needed it by 5:15, so the front desk said they would call at 5PM. I went down at 5:15PM and she then placed the call. 25 minutes went by and no taxi. I went outside and flagged one down myself. I understand taxi companies can get busy, but the girl at Holiday Inn should have placed a call way in advance then.
Good Location, Fair Price.. .polish up on customer service and care for loyal platinum members.

We sure enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn, Seattle. The Emerald Grill Restaurant employees one of the best, most personable bar tenders that I have encountered in a long time. His name is Nick and he crafted wonderful cocktails, he was prompt, and always had a smile. We could tell he was happy to be there. Nick defiantly kept us laughing and satisfied. We decided to stay at the Emerald Grill for the remainder of the evening rather than head out to another venue because of Nick. Great service, well done!

I booked this hotel based on other reviews. I am glad I did. The staff was fantastic, the room very comfortable and quiet. The restaurant located next door was friendly and the food was superb. Try the apple pie for desert.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Charlie3519 Comfortable bed, spacious room, great location
Great location, walking distance to many great neighbourhoods. Staff is friendly and always available to assist. Small fridge, safe and microwave in the room. Business center available with your room key with 2 computers and printers. Great when you want to print your boarding pass and last minute tourist information. Only con is that the maid did not respect the "environment friendly card" in the room. She kept changing our towels even if we wrote notes and left them on the towel rack. Ask for a room on a higher floor to avoid hearing the garbage truck at 3am. Free wi-fi available everywhere on property.
