Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by t-johnny71 Good hotel, awful beds
Great location, quiet with windows closed, view of Space Needle from room! Pay parking was easy and accessible. Room was big and spacious (2 room suite) with standard bathrooms. Beds were very basic and uncomfortable (springs) unfortunately that was the worst part and would limit my willingness to stay again. Pillows were plentiful but all very large and fluffy (some "firm" some "soft" but none that weren't giant). I would prefer smaller firmer pillow options. Bed had a blanket on it that had a big white stain on it (yuck!) but when asked a clean replacement was delivered within minutes! Kids enjoyed the pool and the buffet breakfast was filling.

Location is great! Space Needle within easy walking distance & if you're lucky, you can see it from your window. Really enjoyed my stay. And the Emerald Grill was really good, too!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Justin40 Clean, good location and breakfast
Stayed for 3 nights on the top floor. I'm pretty sure it was a slow period as there didn't seem to be many other guests. There's a parking lot in the front (Aurora Ave.) as well as in the back. I parked in the front, which was a little tight for a full sized car. Staff was efficient, rooms clean, water pressure impressive for a hotel, beds average. The rooms were quiet, although the hotel seemed pretty empty. We stayed on the side facing the regular Holiday Inn adjacent to the Holiday Inn Express but were above the top floor of the other hotel. However, if you're on a lower floor facing the other Holiday Inn, you would be facing the other hotel rooms of that hotel. Wifi worked, but got kicked off after a while and had to sign in again. Breakfast was pretty good for a free breakfast, although you should avoid the pancakes, unless you're desperate for pancakes. The rest of the breakfast was good. Overall it was a pleasant stay and I'd stay again.
