Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Recruiter00 Great Service but not a very nice hotel
The hotel staff was great and the location was convenient, but the hotel itself and rooms were not kept up very well. It did not seem especially clean and up kept.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mrsdiz05 Great Location and Nice as well
Great location. We walked as a family to the monorail, hitched a ride and were able to go play without worrying about our vehicle or anything else. Breakfast was great.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Lmgilto Disappointing this time
We ALWAYS choose holiday inn express when available. We have stayed at the Seattle city center location several times. This was our least favorite trip. Didn't feel secure, check in staff did not know what they were doing, barely spoke to us while checking us in. We were checked into an OCCUPIED room. When it was brought to their attention, there was no urgency, just oops. If i was the one having strangers in my room i would be real upset. (Good thing it was an honest family that got the wrong room. That situation could have very easily went wrong) When we got our new room not all the keys worked, when we got our new keys they didn't work either. Staff was not very knowledgeable/helpful when I had questions. Disappointed with our stay this trip, hoping it gets better. I would not recommend this location this time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jeanette09 Perfect place to stay for reasonable cost
Really enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn Express and Suites in Seattle-City Center. Clean, friendly and great breakfast buffet. Within walking distance of Seattle Center (just a couple of blocks), great dining and shopping. Plan to stay again next time we visit Seattle.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Muskyqos Great friendly staff.
Ideal location for exploring the City of Seattle. Only concern was that the breakfast room was too small for number of guests in Hotel and it was difficult to find a clean table to sit down and eat.
Pool although small was clean and water warm and ideal for the kids to have a quick splash.

Would have been 5 stars, except there is a main highway in front of the hotel. The noise was not the problem, my room had a great view of the Space Needle and was facing the highway. The problem was, if you could go directly across the highway from the hotel front door the Space Needle was only two blocks away. Since there was no cross walk by the hotel you had to walk two blocks along the highway to get to a crosswalk, then the two block back the other side of the highway to get back to the opposite site of the highway across from the hotel. Then walk the two blocks to the Space Needle. When you look on the map on the hotel web site, there is nothing to tell you that because there is no cross walk by the hotel the two block walk to the needle become a six block walk.
Please see attached photo of the hotel taken from the space needle. I was in room 501 which is right above the main entrance. There are two streets that run on each side of the hotel, if you look very closely at the side street on the left of the hotel, that would have crossed the main highway. You can see the concrete wall about 42 inches high running down the middle of the main highway in front of the hotel. This wall keeps you from crossing the main highway by car or by foot. This wall runs for two blocks to the right of the hotel and about 3 blocks to the left of the hotel.
I would stay here again since the location is great (except for the wall) and the staff was great.
