Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JaneOO It was Ok
All in all a decent place, 3 blocks from the Space needle. Lots of construction while we were there, hard to walk around. No restaurants within walking distance except for the one at the hotel. Room was nice, originally reserved a suite, no vire however, kinda thought with a king suite we would have a view of something besides a wall....asked to switch rooms, staff was helpful in accommodating us so all turned out well
A little pricey for a Holiday Inn Express, but it was Ok

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MrsNFL My stay at HI Express
Nothing outstanding but comfortable enough for what I needed. I only spent 2 nights for resting and sleeping. Did not have any breakfast or use any of the other amenities. Price was somewhat high for an "average" rating hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Murphjk Beds were more comfortable than at other Holiday Inn Expresses
Very comfortable stay. The staff at the front desk was very knowledgeable of the area and gave us great advice for seeing the area. The only complaint is the Wi Fi was VERY slow and this is true with many of the hotels we have stayed at throughout the country in this hotel chain. I was disappointed that we were charged for parking AND the parking was limited. When I inquired about that I was assured they had overflow in a neighboring hotel.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Ervin Ok stay but dishonest employees
Stayed with Holiday Inn Express during the weekend from Oct. 25-27. Upon checking out, I realized that I did not pack my iPad and left it on the bed, Called the hotel but was told that they did not get any reports of a found iPad. Staff took it. Disappointed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sierra11 excellent value for blocked rooms
We had a large group staying at the Express for 3-5 nights. Loved the close proximity to downtown. Room was very comfortable, breakfast good for traveling families, $10 parking great even if it was sometimes a challenge to get in garage and use the overflow lot. We will definitely return.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by StlHockey19 Nothing Working Right
We checked in with kids to find out the pool was not working and when it rains......it leaks everywhere. Not very close to attractions, even though they claim it is right in the heart. It's a good 10 blocks to anything. The restaurant next door under HI claimed kids eat free ..only to find out it wasn't for Express. Place is old and a dive ...wish I wouldn't have wasted so many points on this junk!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JoanneP Must stay at Holiday Inn Express Seattle Center
The best place to stay in Seattle is the Holiday Inn Express near the Space Needle (Seattle Center).
Why-you have a view of the space needle from many of the rooms. It's close enough to walk to Pike’s Market (20 minutes) or the staff will accommodate you with transportation. It's also close to South Lake Union.
During our first stay three days ago the staff arranged for transportation to the Washington State Ferry terminal in Seattle. It could not have been easier to make our ferry.
Thanks to all for a great visit. We'll be back.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by yokohama mix-ups everywhere- lingering unfixed computer issues
The computer at check in gave me room 605 but they put me in room 607, so every time I left the room the card deactivated. I would go back up; I would have to go back down to remake a card so I could get into my room. (Fair room value, poor ability to relax)
That also meant the breakfast room locked me out. Running joke with other guests. I felt like the dog being let in and let out of the house- not good. I gave up going for breakfast on day two (so low value on breakfast).
Stayed for 4 days, the problem was continuous. Did speak to the manager- she didn't seem too worried about it. Sent in a complaint to IHG and the response was basically "Yeah, you had a complaint, we value you as a customer, so what?"
If I had been on a tight schedule with calls to Tokyo and Hanover, the key delay would have made me late. I dreaded leaving my room because of the hassle. The elevators are slow. I am glad my wife did not accompany me on this trip, the keys access issue would have caused arguments all around.
And yes, the cleaning staff shouldn't be chasing people out of rooms at 8:30am on a Sunday and the carpets are a bit grungy according to other reviews.
Did they used to have ottoman's in the rooms?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tlynn64 Great Stay
We arrived early in Seattle and were able to check into our room by 9:30 am. This was very helpful to get our day started. Our room was very quiet and comfortable on the 3rd floor away from the elevator. The morning breakfast and daily variety was good. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Great location and good staff.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by undergrad Terrible service and unexplained account drafts
My account was authorized for over 300 dollars worth of unexplained charges and upon check out I had to request that the charges be taken off. When I spoke with the manager, he was unable to explain the charges and completely unwilling to help me. The charges to my account have yet to be resolved. I'm completely shocked that the manager was fine with one of his employees charging extra money unaccountably.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jerry25 Awesome room and staff
When I checked in I was greeted warmly and professionally. The lady acknowledged me and was able to provide me with a rapid check in. The lobby was exceptional and the elevators were clean.
Upon arriving in the room I found it to be very spacious and clean. The bed was very comfortable.
There were limited options for a breakfast meal at the cafeteria, but the eggs and meats were excellent. The coffee was hot and flavorful. The wait staff was able to keep all items well stocked and were very polite. The only thing that I wish was that there were omelets other than western omelets on the days omelets were served.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dealybob Stunk to high heaven!
I was given a smoking room when it was not requested. The room was stifling in its stale smoke odor. Tried to call downstairs to complain but the phone was broken! My hair, my clothes all stunk!
I had just stayed at a Holiday Inn Express in Marysville and thought I was at a 4-star hotel, the room and service were so incredible. This place was the opposite. Below is a list of room faults based on what I did have at the Marysville location.
Missing toiletries, no TV listing guide, rough sheets, could only open the window a crack to air it out; soda machine in hall was broken; no refrigerator; unresponsive and unfriendly staff.
Plus I paid $10 to park there and my car was vandalized.
What a dump!!!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by lws1 Room not what I booked
I have to say this was the worst experience I have ever had when staying with the Holiday Inn Express. I booked a king bed non-smoking. When I arrived, I was told I was upgraded to a Queen smoking with a view. I indicated I did not reserve this room. She told me this was all they had and that I booked a kind smoking room. My confirmation indicated this is what I booked. I never confirmed the confirmation e-mail because I have never ever had any issues with any of my booking. I called to discuss this IHG and she indicated someone had changed my profile. I looked at my profile before booking this room and all was the same, it has never changed from the time I set it up. I could not sleep due to the cigarette smell in the room.
When I booked this room, she mention that the room was a king smoking and I corrected her and she said she made the correction; but, the confirmation still indicated a smoking room. She also mentions at the time of my booking that there were no rooms available; but was able to book the room. The friends we spent the weekend with in Seattle booked their room two days after I booked and got a kind none smoking. The only difference was I used points and they paid for there room. I spent thousands of dollars earning these points. I did not deserve this treatment.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Thorko Hotel Stay
It was horrible. The front desk overbilled me by $1,300 for our three day stay. That was all our vacation monies. Filed a complaint and it took Holiday Inn eight working days to fix their mistake. We could not go out an eat and enjoy Seattle for our time their. And we never got reimbursed for our suffering and hardship.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by pilot5301 Rude Staff, poor maintenance, old facility
The manager was very rude and dismissive when complained the the television did not work, and I suspected the the remote was broken as it was taped together. His response was "it is probably working fine" Very dismissive and very rude! As it turned out, the remote was indeed broken!
This is a old facility and it has not been maintained. The carpet in out room was severely stained, no proper desk, only a table with no light and no outlets for the computer. There really was no place to work. Only one elevator and it was very sloooow!
This hotel does not meet Holiday Inn Express standards!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Victoriabuddies close to space needle
I am a flight attendant and therefore can compare a LOT of hotel brands and locations. This hotel was booked for it's proximity to the space needle, the monorail and the victoria ferry terminal.
There is almost no sound insulation. You could hear people walk above. We were lucky to get a room not facing the needle because on that side, it would have been noisy due to the presence of a major road. Some people may not like the fact that the sink is in...the room. I personally don't mind as sometimes, it's more efficient to get ready and shave while the other person takes a shower.
The microwave and mini fridge are appreciated.
The staff was hit and miss. The african american gentleman there when we checked in was really nice. However, we obviously were bothering the lady there when we asked for our luggage.
