Nice downtown location, within walking distance to many Seattle tourist spots. However, the city sounds are loud, as the building is old, and has old windows to prove that. The parking is 60ish dollars a night, which I feel like for the price of our stay, should be included. This price is also not stated anywhere till you get to the hotel. It also doesn't come up as part of the hotel bill, it is its own separate bill. All staff were pleasant, just feels like a very basic Marriott that is over priced.

This hotel is located on the south end of downtown Seattle, near Pioneer Plaza. It is a really cool location near some of the most historic buildings in the area and within ez walking distance to cool cafe's, all the tourist attractions at the waterfront, and convenient for bus and train/trolley stations. During our visit, the city of Seattle had provided a free tourist waterfront shuttle that started very near the hotel and ended up at the space needle. Therefore we were able to get around the city on the cheap, which was greatly appreciated since Uber and Taxi's are super expensive in this town. The hotel itself is very comfortable, the rooms clean, and have a nice armoire, desk, tv station, comfortable seating area and bathroom. I like that the hotel doesn't give you tiny bottles of shampoo, etc but instead use larger bottles in the shower, eliminating plastic in the environment. The cafe downstairs has friendly staff, good food and drink. Here are just a few suggestions to make this property even better: 1. Provide a retractable laundry line in the shower (this is for those shirts you have to wash when you spill your drink on it) and stop using plastic in the coffee maker tray refills. Take a look at Germany's Philips coffee makers: they use the "cloth pads" of coffee that the hotel currently uses but with a permanent tray instead of the hotel's current plastic tray that is tossed in the trash after each cup. Safety: Since Marriott is a huge international corporation: please encourage the city to continue to clean up the entire downtown area from the myriads of homeless people that hang around not only by the hotel but everywhere in Seattle. The city is beautiful but SMELLS atrocious with urine smells everywhere.
