    This was my first time in a Four Seasons hotel.  Not a fan of the streetscape on First Avenue, but when we peeked in the hotel and restaurant we were greeted and actually led into ART and showed around!  We stopped into Fran's and bought some chocolates and decided we need to come back soon.

    Can't speak for the rooms here at this swanky, brand-new hotel downtown, as I only hung out at the bar.  But the place is deliciously over-staffed.  I love it.  There's someone to open the doors for you, and lead you where you want to go.  The drinks are expensive and good, and it's fun to sit back, look at the sound, and watch the suits fill the room.  Another plus:  the bathrooms.  Luxurious and grand, which makes me think the rooms must be a real treat to stay in.

    This is just a review of the lounge.  I love going there for drinks.... it's very posh and comfy and nicely designed.  Even though the drinks are pricey ($12 for a glass of wine), I don't mind paying more because the service is so good and the ambience so pleasant.  They give you little snacks with your drinks, too (hazelnuts and wasabi peas - nice touch).  Love it!

    Very nice place. Good service. Pretty typical Four Seasons experience. It has a zen-like feel to it. Great decor. My wife was ooh-'ing and aah'ing over the marble in the lobby and in the bathrooms. The view is great from the bay side (except for the smoke stacks off to the left).

    The pool area is very neat. Affinity pool with a hot tub and a gas fire pit that was occupied most of our trip.

    My wife and a friend of hers raved about the spa treatments. They were very impressed with the spa. Workout area was a little small but serviceable.

    There were a few glitches: 1. In a city known for coffee, several times I had to search it out (funny- you never have this problem at a La Quinta or Holiday Inn Express but it is very common at high end hotels). 2. We went there for an LSU football game and they ran out of beer - twice. Don't they know those crazy cajuns drink more than any other species on Earth? 3. When I left to go to the airport, the bellmen put my bag in someone else's car. I got to the airport and no bag. If I had been under a time crunch, I would have been pissed. They eventually got it to me. The response was "We're so sorry". No letter, email, comlimentary fruit basket or free night's stay, just "We're so sorry". My friend had to wait by herself in the spa area for 15 minutes and they sent a gift basket to her room for her inconvenience. They almost send me home bagless and all they can muster is a "We're so sorry"??? NOT very Four Seasons - like.

    All that being said, I would probably stay here again (unless I could find something better). It is conveniently and centrally located. The staff is cordial and friendly. The rooms are nice and spacious (ditch the featherbed - too soft). The TV embedded in the bathroom mirror was way cool.

    This is one of the first Four Seasons where I have had some head scratching glitches. Maybe it is because it is new. Maybe I expect too much. Oh well, I give it a smiley face. The spa gets a smiley face and a star.

    The rooms are fabulous, new, crisp, and clean.  The bathrooms are modern, and spa like.  I usually have a room facing the Puget Sound, so the views can be incredible.  The staff are always reliable, though not always the most friendly.  The restaurant is great, great service, they remember me from previous stays, and high quality food.

    Stayed here for 3 nights.  Had a wonderful time, got the bay view room although I wouldn't recommend it for the extra price.  The view is horribly broken by an industrial complex with a tall smoke chimney plus a noisy highway below.  The hotel suffers from bad location view wise.  The service, the personal were all friendly and helpful.  Room was clean with comfortable bed. They offered evening down service, nice.  Good location next to art museum and pike market.

    The Four Seasons is really as good as it gets.  Breathtaking views of Puget Sound plus an independent art collection.  The service is impeccable, and the location right across from SAM and Taste make it all the more perfect.

    This is a beautiful hotel tucked away only 1 block from Pike's Market.

    - King-size bed with comfortable linens.
    - Turn down service - who wouldn't want this?
    - Fire pit and infinity pool outdoors ...sad it was too cold to swim when we were there.
    - Loccitaine shower products
    - Concierges REALLY know their food! They recommended the best restaurants for us.
    - Giant bathtub facing the TV (in the bathroom mirror) for a relaxing bubble bath.
    - Our room had a partial bay view, but I am sure the full view would be amazing.

    This was the first time I have been a guest in a four seasons hotel, but everything I have heard about them is true.  It was a wonderful experience.  They treat their guests with the utmost respect.  My girlfriend picked me up from the airport in a limosine and took me here for my first few nights in Seattle while she was presenting a lecture.  A limo is a great way to arrive, but however you arrive they will treat you wonderfully.  I enjoyed their super cozy bed, didn't want to leave my room it was so beautiful.

    We have stayed at this Four Seasons twice since it was opened.
    Our first trip wasn't perfect as we had some difficulties with service as well as climate control in our room.
    We contacted the hotel and they made everything more than right on our second visit. We brought our daughter along with us and they had a beautiful and comfortable crib set up for her, complete with stuffed toys and baby bath products. The staff was very gracious at every opportunity. The hotel is impeccably clean. I love the pool area on one of the roof's. It provides a beautiful view and it is very, very NW.
    I am not a big fan of the restaurant in the hotel but we will definitely return to the Four Season's on our next trip to Seattle.

    I stayed here during summer 2010.

    It's a high-rise so the lobby isn't very big and there isn't much to do as far as exploring the hotel like you'd have at say, a Four Season's Resort. However, it's not full of people running in and out of the building all day with their screaming toddlers in pool floaties. It's small and quiet and the staff isn't pretentious. The guys at the door say hello every time you walk in and out and always offer to help you find stuff as far as walking directions and what not. Plus, the staff doesn't look all suspicious if you walk in and you're under the age of 30. They still treat you like a guest and not some annoying kid who may or may not actually be staying there.

    The hotel is located on the waterfront and it has a pretty view of the bay. The pool deck is also nice and since it's a high-rise, it's prime real estate for people watching from your room. Of course, there's always the creepy business men who just have to get into the hot tub the minute you do, but,  par for the course at a nice hotel in a city.

    The day we arrived, there was a problem with the air conditioner in the living room area of the suite. They fixed the problem by the time we got back from dinner and gave us a free cheese and dessert platter with a bottle of wine as an apology gift.

    The place is super contemporary but the rooms are pretty big and open and one whole wall is just a window facing the water. There's lots of floor space unlike some hotels that have the end of the bed 6 inches from the wall. The bathrooms are really cool too. They have extra deep tubs and a shower with like, 4 different shower heads, which is always a nice contrast to the lame showers at home.

    It's a swank hotel and it's in a safe part of town. Just about everything worth seeing is less than a 10 minute walk away.

    A brand new hotel with top-end finishes everywhere but it was the service that was so amazing. Each staff member went out of their way to make us feel welcome and special - from the front desk staff offering a beverage and free wifi while we waited for our room to be made (at noon, well before check-in time) to the bellman who had cold water waiting for us after a morning run. The concierge delivered a whole packet of information after we asked for brunch suggestions and the spa staff changed our reservation 10 times as we kept changing our plans, all with a smile. We will be back, again and again.

    Stayed here for a few days, excellent hotel, nice rooms.  

    The pool is slightly small, but with salt water.  Nice view from the pool, since it faces to a factory, it looks like an art work when you watch out through the window during breakfast.

    Staffs are helpful, parking is expensive.  We cancelled the rental car, after we realized the market is just one block away.

    What a memorable experience. To be fair, I stayed here the night before and the night of my wedding so of course it was going to be memorable, (just no guarantees whether it would be good, or bad) . I had high expectations as I had an event of a lifetime to prepare for. On the night before my wedding, my mom and I stayed in a city view room. My one complaint was that it was a bit noisy but what do you expect (given the name of the room type - CITY view) when you are in the city and facing the main street. I woke up early the next morning and checked out their workout room. I spent an hour working out pre-wedding jitters with a gorgeous view of the infinity pool, fire pits and ocean (not to mention a beautiful sunrise). I forgot my headphones but not to worry, the workout room is equipped with extras, not to mention fresh towels and cucumber-lime water!

    Mid-way through the day, I needed to shift rooms and the staff so kindly sent someone to show me my new room and lug ALL of my luggage with them (mom's things, my wedding gear and luggage for my 10 day honeymoon = TONS of stuff).

    I tried not to expect too much from my stay as to not add to the pressure of the weekend but everyone made me feel like I was a long-standing guest and always made me feel welcome. Whenever I asked for something it was provided (with the exception of one incident) but never did I get the feeling I was asking for too much. We can't wait for our next stay here and hope to experience the same hospitality.

    Loved our 3 night stay here. I'd definitely recommend. Room was spacious, modern, and had a wonderful partial view of the bay overlooking the pool. We felt the stay was very good value given the experience.

    Here're a few highlights from the stay:

    ~ Loved eating by the pool on a hot summer day. Ordered food, and while the attendant was getting it from room service, I took a swim and enjoyed the view. Got out, sun dried, and then boom -- my lunch arrived. Fantastic. (He did forget to bring me water after I asked the first time, though...)

    ~ Bathroom had the most amazing (yet quiet) ventilation you can imagine -- there was a glass shower door, and yet I simply could not get it to fog up no matter how hot I would turn the rain shower on. I suppose that ventilation was important since the mirror had a TV embedded in it. Overall, this is the bathroom I'd like in my own house -- great extra wide/deep tub, nice shower with tiling and a glass door, high quality toilet, TV in the mirror, and lots of marble and wood and glass everywhere. L'Occitane goods, but I have to admit I dislike their bath salts -- smell like pine & mint, which was kind of strong smelling to bathe in.

    ~ The room had a pretty silent ventilation system which responded very quickly to any temperature changes. Outstanding. (Also, no noise at all from any other rooms, etc.)

    ~ In-room POWER breakfast was incredible. We got $80 of breakfast sent up to the room which literally covered the desk. Everything was delicious -- fantastic coffee, delicious chicken sausage, a belgium waffle with the lemon curd (from the ricotta pancakes), an omelet (which admittedly wasn't a superstar), a bread basket, and fruit. Softened butter, our own sets of jams, tons of silverware and china, really just a wonderful experience. Had a great conversation overlooking the ocean, in our room. (PS: Yes, we ate most everything. It wasn't wasteful.)

    ~ Happy, plush bed. Classic FS.

    ~ I had an upset stomach one day, and ordered just some plain chicken broth... they sent it up, but also it came with some bread that I hadn't quite realized I wanted too. The best thing was a "homemade saltine" -- no, really, their chef made a copycat saltine-like cracker that was delicious. What a hilarious way to be slightly sick!

    ~ They did a fantastic job with a bridesmaid dress that was smooshed into a suitcase -- we were super worried, but in just a couple hours (per request) they had the dress back pressed looking better than new. Same story with a suit, etc. House car was later available to help drive around the dress.

    ~ The Art lounge was pretty happening (lots of people), which was kind of surprising. We only found it on our last day, as it's on the other side of the restaurant. We never would have known there were a good number of folks there mid-day... Good place for us to kill some time before a flight.

    ~ Great location downtown. Walking distance to Nordstrom, Pike's, etc.

    Couple of confusing notes:

    ~ We had two buttons break off our clothes while staying there, unfortunately. We put the buttons on the nightstand on a piece of paper, in hopes that the maid would bring one of the little sewing kits to the room. She didn't. Some FS put the little sewing kit in the room by default, although Seattle doesn't, so kinda wish they would at least notice and help.

    ~ Front Desk agent told us we had a $50 spa credit, but I'm pretty sure we didn't. Later a runner brought up a note saying we actually had a breakfast and lunch credit. Kind of a confusing mix up.

    ~ No coffee in the room. I kind of don't care that you can call in-room dining to get coffee, and because in-room is brewing it you might get "the best" coffee ever (strong, hot, etc). Simply put, I want coffee & tea in my room, at all times, period. I found that whenever I wanted a cup of tea, I couldn't bring myself to justify the hassle of calling someone and orchestrating the whole event (including a tip) -- for me, these drinks are personal, and I'd like to take care of it in my own domain. (Also, please change tea brand! Not a fan of this tea Forte.)

    ~ Please, just buy the storage depot next door. Or at the least, pay them to allow you to paint it over with a light blue color. Whatever it costs, guys.

    Beautiful rooms, great location, service, service, service.  I am not sure what is not to like about the Four Seasons.  Making arrangements for my wife at the spa, dinner at Art and other activities was effortless.  The hotel provided some nice gifts as we were celebrating our anniversary.  Easily my favorite downtown Seattle hotel.  We have stayed at the Fairmont, Sheraton, Westin, W, and Red Lion/Cavanaughs on prior visits.  The Four Seasons is the best.  Plus you have Fran's chocolates right in the lobby!

    I loved this hotel:

    --The most comfortable bed I've ever experienced. It felt like I was sleeping on a cloud.
    --The tub was so deep that had I filled it 1/2 way, I could have floated.
    --Their homemade Muesli was some divine mixture of oats and grains, apples, nuts, milk & berries. I ate it 3 mornings in a row.
    --Their outdoor pool is heated so I was able to swim in the rain and had the pool to myself!

    Impeccable. From the service to the ambience to the amenities. Staying at the Four Seasons is probably the best hotel experience I have ever had. It will probably spoil me to other hotels forever. Of course, it helped that I tagged along with hubby for a conference. So,  I got to stay for free. You can't beat that.

    I also treated myself to the Spa and had a wonderful massage courtesy of Misty. Again, a truly first rate experience. Highly recommended, if you can stand the sticker shock.

    This hotel is brand new, but the service is top notch!  I wish I had taken a photo of the bathroom. It was amazing!  I also ordered room service at 2am and had the best chili chicken wings I've ever eaten.

    The room was a little suite with a sitting area and then the bedroom and 2 bathrooms!! I loved that it was a block away from Pike's Place, which is where we walked around the next day.

    I liked it so much, I want to go back next year!

    This is a nice hotel; as it should be at these prices. Staff is excellent. Rooms and public areas are very nicely appointed.

    Some issues that makes this less than a top-notch experience:

    - Walls are thin. We can hear folks in the hall or next room talking. This included, at some point, a woman trying to keep her dog quiet (if I wanted to hear someone shushing their dog, I could have stayed home...).

    - You pay extra for the "partial bay view" which gives you a noisy view of the Alaskan Way Viaduct, and some not-very-attractive warehouse type buildings. Yes, Elliott Bay is out there, but I wouldn't call it a stunning view, unless you are  fan of mid-20th century roadway engineering.

    - And, most annoyingly, they charge $11 a day for wireless service. Then you get continuing "pop up" promotions for "premium upgraded service," which apparently runs faster. It's another $5 to $10 a day (I forget which). Seems to me that if you pay $22 for online service for a two-day stay they should leave you alone; asking for more than $30 for 2 days of Internet service is a bit much.

    Hotels in this price range are all nice, or should be. The difference is in the details. Details here are annoying.

    [By the way, I just noticed that a couple of paragraphs from my original review have been removed. They referred to the neighborhood, and to the well-publicized financial problems of this hotel, which are a matter of  public record. Just wanted to let you know that someone at Yelp did not think you should read my entire original review.]

    I love the four seasons. I do makeup here quite frequently for weddings. This hotel has some of the best service I have ever experienced! It's a beautiful hotel, the valet guys remember my boss and myself every time we come down to work and are always so friendly! The front desk staff is gracious, friendly, and very helpful. And there is Gerald.... Oh Gerald, how I LOVE Gerald!!! He is the wedding coordinator extraordinaire of the four seasons and they couldn't have anyone more amazing! Even the grooms do exactly what they are told, if Gerald tells them what to do. Which, if you ever meet a group of groomsmen, is quite funny! Gerald's impeccable taste makes brides' vision come to life, and they feel like they are the most important person in the world the entire time they are working with him. As a wedding vendor, I can't even describe how privileged we feel to work with him! If I could get married anywhere in Seattle and work with anyone. Gerald and the four seasons would be at the very top of my list... And there are some amazing wedding vendors on my list!

    What a beautiful hotel!  The guest bathrooms are gorgeous, but the toilet seat cover dispensers are wack!  You have to manually push down a lever, but the covers get stuck.  If you try to pull them out, they rip.  If you keep pushing the level while slowly pulling, it's slightly more successful, but it's a terrible system for such a high-tech, otherwise fully-automated facility.

    4.5 stars
    Just the right amount of hipness, elegance and style.
    You don't get the stuffy vibe of a Ritz, which I appreciate.
    Location is awesome, though it would be nice to have an elevator down to the waterfront (not that I'm lazy, but I know some people have lots of trouble).
    Hard to find if you're on 1st, and if you're on Union, just know you have to go to the dead end.
    High notes -
    Styling of the room is great - the dressers and desk area are artistic and functional.
    Lobby is understated but elegant, as it should be in Seattle.
    Great views from most rooms
    Food in the restaurant is good - and the bar doesn't look down on casual attire.
    Friendly staff without being over the top.
    Low notes -
    I don't get why hotels are all going to see through frosted glass surrounding toilets.  You might as well not put a door there.  I've been with my partner for 14+ years, but still don't want to sit on the toilet in front of him.  I had this problem at The W in Barcelona.  I didn't expect it from the Four Seasons (hence the 1/2 star taken away).
    Exterior design makes for a dangerous driveway.  There's no sidewalk leading to the door and you have to cross driveway traffic to enter hotel lobby.

    I have a new favorite place in Seattle.

    Fancy hotel. Nice rooms. Great service. And they have those TVs in the bathroom mirror -- very futuristic.

    And as a lover of room service, I liked the fancy nachos and pizza. This is the perfect hotel if you like to take a long bath, put on a soft robe, and then watch TV in a fancy bed while eating good pizza.

    I've stayed at a few hotels in Seattle, and this is by far the best. I live here but it's nice to stay somewhere and get away from all the worries at home once in a while. The customer service here is top-notch, the rooms are really nice, the pool area is AMAZING (do NOT forget your swimsuit or swim trunks!) and they have a jag that can take you around the downtown Seattle area. Oh, and ART restaurant has great food. I have never stayed at a FS before, but I think I might just be a convert!

    I checked in on a Friday night, since I would be going to a winemaker's dinner at ART restaurant and didn't want to worry about getting home for the night. (And to wind down from a family vacation in the woods during the previous week.) I was checked in quickly (seriously, 2 minutes, tops! And that's probably because we requested a shaving kit, haha) and directed up to the room. On the way to the elevator there was a pitcher of apple cider to drink, and apple rings and a little thing about apples since it's fall and you're in Washington.

    The city view room was small, but nice - a bit dim, but clean and with an amazing bathroom! marble everywhere, tv inside the mirror so you can watch from the shower, ridiculously deep bath tub for soaking, and a shower with 2 heads - rainshower and normal, and you could have them both on at once or just one at a time. L'Occitane soap and shampoo, fluffy towels and robes. Heaven! The bed was super comfortable, and I could only barely hear the sounds of the street 8 floors below (the room looked out over the SAM).

    I'd heard a lot about the rooftop infinity pool, but didn't get a chance to check it out that night. Instead, I got up early for a swim. Well, we've been having some beautiful late summer weather lately, and I was surprised it was completely empty. Went for a swim and called room service to have breakfast delivered to the pool. YES, that's right. Pool breakfast. I figured if they can bring room service to your room, then why not the pool?! They sent someone down with menus, and sadly he didn't come back for like 10 minutes so we just called up again and told them what we wanted. Swam some more and then had a plate of hot, fluffy lemon ricotta pancakes with sides of lemon curd and blackberry jam, plus a nice big glass of ice water (yay! I hadn't asked, but was going to!) and a side of chicken sausage. Best breakfast I've had in a while - I am definitely going to get this again the next time I stay. $16 well spent!

    This place is just amazing - I think staying there is going to become a a regular occurence. I can't believe I paid even more to stay at the Edgewater recently! I'll just have to stay at the FS more until that is just a faded memory :)

    What can I say...it is the Four Seasons

    I've stayed at many different Four Seasons; and have never been disappointed. This Seattle one is fantastic. If you can, ask for a room on the corner (with views of the city and water) It was much better ( in view, and room size ) than just the partial water view or city view. It was a very short walk to all the main touristy things. My only negative would be that you have to pay for wifi...it is absolutely ridiculous to spend this kind of money but not get free wifi. Other than that - stay here - it is worth it!

    There are certain brands in world that are synonymous with luxury; Gucci, Prada, Armani. In the world of hotels Four Seasons is one of those names. I can work wizardry with my words, to explain how memorable it is to stay here, but if you want to experience what a hotel should be, then close your browser and come check in.

    A state of the art spa, fantastic restaurant, friendly staff and comfy rooms all can be at your fingertips with a stay here. It will cost you more to stay, but the money can't be better spent.

    Great location near Pikes Market and good shopping. Great looking contemporary fireplace welcomes you in the lobby...along with refreshing fruit-infused water.
    The beds are exceptionally comfy,rooms spacious with an Interesting view of the ferry boats coming and going to neighboring islands.
    The real stand-out is the amazing staff. Especially the concierge. I came with a photo of a glass sculpture and asked if they could help me find the artist. Within 10 minutes they had located the artist, his studio, and printed out all pertinent info. We were
    blowm-away!
    We will be back in July...yes it's pricy, but worth it.

    Celebrated our anniversary here for five nights in the summer 2011! They sent up champagne and chocolate covered strawberries with a wonderful hand written note signed by the assistant manager. Didn't expect that they would recognize a same - sex anniversary- very nice way to start vacation! The hotel is centrally located and we explored Seattle by foot for the first time (last time we actually rented a car).This is definitely the way to do it. You can walk everywhere!
    Ample size room with a large marble bathroom (TV in the mirror). Comfortable bed and excellent turn down service. Coffee served in the lobby in the morning as well as by the work out area. The work out area overlooks the pool (infinity pool...quite small) with sufficient equipment. Very attentive employee asking if we want water or a towel. Bathroom products- awesome! L'Occitane

    Not regarding hotel, but may find useful:
    Highlights: Six Seven Restaurant, Brooklyn Steak House, Space Needle (did not have high expectations but the food was amazing and the service incredible), Jade Garden (dim sum was excellent in the not- so- attractive International District).
    The International District does not compare to LA's Little Tokyo or San Francisco's Chinatown (but Jade Garden had one of the best Dim Sum's ever!)

    Disappointed: Bainbridge Island (I guess if you have been to small towns such as Cambria, Balboa Island, Coronado Island....you have seen it all). Blackbird Bakery was okay, nothing to write home about.

    The wi-fi sucks. This is the Four fucking Seasons, why does the wi-fi suck so bad? And why isn't it free? And why do you have to pay to upgrade to a faster speed?

    And why is there a stupid frame with ads on it? I keep closing it and it keeps coming back. The connection drops every few minutes. Maybe it's because I'm on the 10th floor, but it sucks.

    If you pay for something, you shouldn't have to see ads. I don't care if the ads are for your spa, or your faster speed, or whatever, I shouldn't see them. On my mobile device, the ad popped up on a YouTube page and completely covered the video. I couldn't disable it.

    As for the room, it was "nice," but nothing extraordinary. The king bed was comfortable. Pillows ample. Two terry-cloth towels (very nice touch). TV screen in the mirror. Thanks for that. But the room was smallish, didn't have much furniture (because it was smallish). The decor was modernish. Not bad, but nothing extraordinary. The view was okay. You see a big steam refinery right outside the bay.

    The location is great, near Pike Place market. The staff is super friendly. All of those are great.

    I just wish the wi-fi didn't suck so bad. I also don't get very good cell service, so if you're with t-mobile and they place you on the 10th floor, you may want to get another room on a different side of the building (I'm on the north west side).

    Full disclosure: I didn't pay for my room, it was through work, so I didn't particularly care about the fee. This review is to help people who are paying out of their pocket. Still, the ads are annoying.

    Great experience. I could live in this bathroom. Seriously amazing! The tub is big enough for a few adults. The television in the mirror is awesome. The shower is great.... And my favorite part is the completely separated room/stall for the toilet for complete privacy. I really want to take this bathroom home with me! The bed is comfortable. The view is great. Staff is professional. Really my only critique is the painting in my suite was border line hideous!

    I love Seattle... why? Because hotels are relatively cheap. How much do you think it costs to stay in a Four Seasons? $350? $400? Nope... you can get a great room for $260... for the nice lobby, excellent service, and well appointed room I'd say that's a steal. The location is prime, it's only a quick walk to Pike's Place Market if you're doing the tourist thing. Definitely would stay here again.

    Four Seasons Seattle is one of my favorite hotels to visit for a long weekend. The service and attention to detail is stellar and the rooms are modern, clean beautiful and just a joy to relax in. Also, the hotel is right downtown next to all of the action so it's so fun to stay right in the heart of the city with a view of Elliott Bay. The staff here is just incredible and they almost have what you want in your hand before you even ask. They really make an effort to make sure you have the best possible stay as possible. All of the services here are top notch, the ART restaurant is delicious and the Spa is AHHHHHmazing!!! I had a few treatments there and it was just superb. I was dealing with some personal health issues at the time and the staff was so professional, sensitive and discrete about my situation. They way they handled my situation directly and the overall service during our last stay was spectacular. Thanks FS Seattle, you guys do it right.

    I stayed here for my cousin's bachelorette party.  I was impressed right away.  The rooms were beautiful and the beds were so cozy.  The service was really helpful, even when having to deal with 6 girls that had just been out at a bachelorette party all night...

    The breakfast in the morning came right on time and was beautiful and tasty too!

    I would love to stay here again sometime.  

    Oh and the lavender martini's are to die for.

    This is the third Four Seasons I have stayed, but the first that wasn't a resort.
    Sure there was no private dipping pool looking out over a jungle, but it was pretty awesome.
    The two things that make a great hotel are the staff and the room. The staff were so nice. They remembered our names. If I called room service for a fork it was at my door in 5 minutes. Not just one fork but two. with a napkin and plate.
    The hotel it self is very nice as well. There is a place on the wall to plug in just about any peripheral to the TV. There is  TV in the mirror of the bathroom and the toilet was encased in its own little frosted glass room. It was awesome.
    This is probably the best hotel experience I have had in North America.

    The Four Seasons is the most consistent high end hotel chain hands down.  The staff is impeccably trained, attentitive, and professional. The key here for the high end traveler is the attention to detail.  You get the same superior experience at all of there properties.  I won't bore you with the details except to say that you get what you pay for there.  If you are used to staying in nice hotels for about 500$/night then you know what I am talking about.  We won't seriously consider staying in a city that doesn't have a Four Seasons.  The Edgewater Hotel, by comparison, is WAY overpriced and has the smallest rooms in the history of hotels, for the price.

    For our wedding night we decided to stay at the Four Seasons in Seattle. The reservation that we have book was the Romance package which included complementary breakfast, champane and chocolate covered strawberries.
    We arrived at the Hotel very late at night, and of course we were looking forward to the Champane and Starwberries waiting for us :). The Guest services were very friendly and even congradulated us on the big day! The lady that checked us in even gave us a couple of Spa vouchers (Thank you!!).
    Once we got to our room - which was amazing! - there were no strawberries and champane :( but once we called down the service was on top of everything and getting the items delivered to us ASAP.

    During the late evening, I guess we couldn't sleep just because we were in that "omg we're married" mode haha. So we ended up ordering two juicy burgers in their room service menu. & my goodness they were EXCELLENT! The next morning we had breakfast in their restaurant, our hostess was very professional and so were the rest of the staff.

    My husband and I are going to make the Four Seasons an annual thing now. Thank you Four Seasons Seattle for being the "cherry on top" for our wedding night :)

    I was in town for a Christmas party and my this hotel and room were booked for me, let me say what a wonderful place they chose for me.  I stayed in the Corner Elliott Bay Suite on the 10th floor with unobstructed views of Elliot Bay and Puget Sound.

    The suite was perfectly cleaned and the presentation was nice.  I would have liked it to be a bit more modern or elegant that most 'suites' offer however this was a very nice room and quiet which is what I enjoy most in a room as I am not living in the room 24 hours a day, I just want to come back to a hotel room that is clean and quiet and this was most definitely that.

    The hotel staff was plentiful and very helpful with all my dumb questions about where to eat (I was craving a pizza, I know of all things to crave in Seattle a city sitting on the ocean with excellent seafood) and the staff's choice was perfect.

    I would definitely stay here again when in town as it was a nice place to hang my hat for the night.

    At this price-point, you can expect this to be a nice hotel, and it is. Great service, well-appointed rooms, clean, etc. I received all that. I expected all that.

    What I didn't get, with my "Partial Bay View," is any real view of the bay. "Not Really Bay View" would have been a more appropriate label. If you stood in one two by two corner of the room, which is not an area you'd ever find yourself in as it's behind the desk that's crammed in the corner, you could glimpse the bay. With "Partial," I fully expected to be looking into the windows of the apartment building across the street a bit. I didn't expect the skeleton halloween decoration (this was August) to be the only scenery I'd receive from 98% of the floorspace.

    While the appointments in the room were all pretty nice, it felt very "Ikea" and there were a couple details that were flat-out missed by the designer. Yes, I looked at labels and know nothing was actually from Ikea. Yes, I know a small bit about space planning and interior design.

    Enough of the negative... This is a fine hotel with what's likely the best location of any in the city and offers gorgeous views of the sunset on the pool deck along with a fire pit and full service.

    I would stay here again, but would be more diligent in room selection.

    Clean and modern.

    The best part of the room is the bathroom experience.
    Awesome jacuzzi tub and a separate shower.

    Service wasn't impressive. What Four Seasons pride themselves on is their service, yet we didn't receive any.  Granted, we didn't ask for much, but nothing really stood out from staying here vs another hotel. I just expected more.  

    Low ceilings, feels slightly claustrophobic, but it was clean and new.

    I've been blessed to travel extensively internationally and stay at copious world class hotels and I have to say the Chef Concierge at the Four Seasons Seattle, Heather Rogers, is amazing and is a key factor in putting this hotel on my top 10 list. Whatever your needs, she delivers with professionalism and enthusiasm.  Living locally I don't stay there often, but have used the spa services and love ART for the phenomenal menu, views, location and service.  We even decided to spend our Thanksgiving there this year and I HIGHLY recommend it!  The service was spot on as usual and whether you want traditional or gourmet they delivered as always with no grocery shopping or dishes to do.  If you or your friends are staying in Seattle there is no better location for exploring the city and then coming back to a well appointed room with all the amenities and service you could ask for.

    The room was amazing, you've read the reviews--giant tub, mirror TV, simple elegance in room, amazing 85° pool and hot tub on the roof, etc. I'd give the hotel 5 stars.

    As for the food, it gets 2 stars. We ordered the the express tray; the server was very nice and the tray looked great. However, the "pot pie" was a little serving ramekin with about 1/3 c of super salty and thick cream of mushroom soup topped with a biscuit. The sweet potato soup was way too sweet, we barely ate that [the little girl I was watching attempted to dump a bunch of pepper into it to improve the taste--no luck]. The chips were okay, the warm Blondie was decent, but the one thing I truly liked was the one strawberry that tasted amazing. So, if you're looking to pay 1.5x as much as the listed price, and 3x as much as you'd pay in a real restaurant for better food, go ahead.

    Oh, the Four Seasons Seattle!  You take my breath away. Probably the most Nordic City in all of the US - Seattle, oh Beautiful City, give me your cold. Give me your depression, give me your endless raining days.

    To the seafaring Nordic fishermen, Life is not a complacent 76 degrees! No! It is being thrown into the throes of dark treacherous waters to fish for a living....

    For reward it is coming home.  And if we survived the dark waters then bestow mercy on us.  Usher us into the glow of Art, allow us to sit in the the Finnish pinewood sauna, and wrap our body and soul in the goose feather 1700 count sheets that feel so buttery on skin, that it's made for love. I've been to 4 other Four Seasons but not one comes close to the Seattle Four Seasons.

    Yes everyone knows how awesome the hotel is ... But do you know about Art Bar???? Most Seattleites probably don't, and you should .... two words .... cheese bar ... yes your heard correctly. It's probably one of the best kept secrets around!

    The wine and cheese happy hour .... need I say more? $6 for a fantastic selection of cheese and tasty pairing! The view is unbeatable! I don't know how I've lived in this city 2+ years and am just finding out about this! A friend was heading out of town for a trip around the world (serious) and she wanted to cheese it up! And that we did! The cheese bar (if that's what you can call it) stays well stocked and the staff is very accommodating and attentive. I will definitely be back again. Word to the wise ... parking in the hotel - not comped, but let's be real at this price you can deal with parking on the streets, no?

    My fiancee and I decided to stay at the Four Seasons when visiting Seattle this past weekend. The front desk is very friendly and helpful; everyone says hello when you walk out, and there's always a couple of gentlemen at the door to open it for you on your way out (well, they missed a couple times, but that's no big deal). We stayed in a standard city view room with a king bed, which is very nice and spacious on its own. The bed's very comfortable; you have plenty of drawers and closet space to put your clothing; and perhaps most impressively, the bathroom is decked out - there's a TV in the mirror, and a separate bathtub and shower, with marble tiling and granite countertops. It's very, very cool. Room service was pretty quick on delivering food that was ordered up; in particular, I liked that all the available beers were local craft brews and not your standard big-name providers. The pool area on the 4th floor is very nice - you have an infinity pool that is heated so you can go for a dip even when the air temperature is a little chilly, and there's a small tent to the side where drinks and food can be provided from. Best of all, you have a very nice view of Ferris wheel and Puget Sound - it looks particularly gorgeous at sunset.

    You can't really do much better than the Four Seasons if you're from out of town. It's conveniently located to most everything in downtown and is just a block away from Pike Place Market. The light rail stop that goes straight to SeaTac is just a couple blocks over. And with it being at the end of Union Street, you don't even walk out to an area that has a bunch of cars waiting for you at the entrance. Anytime I'm back in Seattle, I'm sure I will be stopping by here.

    Wow!  This is a great hotel (of course) and they really do pamper you.  My wife and I came here for the last day of a trip celebrating our first wedding anniversary.  I happened to mention that to the young woman at the registration desk, and lo and behold, when we got back from walking around the town there was a bottle of bubbly and some wonderful chocolate-covered strawberries waiting in our room.  Just a great hotel experience.  The only negative is that they want to charge you for internet after you have a few devices connected--not what I would expect given the cost of the room!

    This was my first time staying at a Four Seasons, and I admittedly had high expectations.  This property managed to disappoint in almost every possible way.  The rooms were disappointing, the service was disappointing, and the overall facility was disappointing.  The one aspect of our stay which was exceptional was the restaurant and the service there.

    We stayed here for 1 night en route to Vancouver for my husband's 30th birthday.  We pulled into the hotel and then decided we wanted to grab lunch before checking in so we drove right out.  We then changed our minds and decided we'd just eat at the hotel, so we made a quick loop and came right back.  Yes, this must have looked a bit silly, but it happens.  When we got out of the car and gave the keys to the valet he said 'welcome back' with a smirk on his face.  Completely unnecessary and not what I'd expect at a Four Seasons.

    Next, check-in.  The lady who checked us in informed us that we'd been given an upgrade to a 'partial bay-view room' and then proceeded to try to upsell us to a suite.  I couldn't believe the attempted upsell.  It's completely unacceptable, particularly if (as in my case) the trip is a present to celebrate a special occasion.  You shouldn't be making your guests feel cheap in front of their guests for turning down an upgrade.

    The room itself was fine.  Nothing fantastic in any way.  As for the 'partial view'?  If you stood right up against the window and craned your neck, you could see the water.  What we did have a great view of was the pool and jacuzzi from above.  Looking down at it, the jacuzzi was surrounded by ugly brown rust stains.  Again, could not believe this from a Four Seasons.  We had brought bathing suits, but after seeing that, we decided to give it a skip.

    When making the reservation, I had been informed that the hotel car was available to take guests to destinations within a 2 mile radius.  We had dinner plans in Capitol Hill so tried to get the car to drop us off.  I was rudely informed that the restaurant (which was 1.7 miles from the hotel) did not come within the 1.5 mile radius and therefore we should take a taxi.  Clearly anyone staying at the Four Seasons is perfectly capable of taking a taxi, but the rudeness was completely unnecessary.

    Lastly, the common areas of this hotel are just completely underwhelming.  I've stayed at a number of Seattle hotels (Andra, W), and I've found them all to be much more inviting.  The W in particular seemed to me to be superior to the Four Seasons in every way (price included!)

    As I mentioned previously, the one thing that really stood out about this property was the restaurant and the service in it.  Both the food and the service were truly exceptional.

    Following our stay at the Four Seasons, we drove up to Vancouver where we stayed at the Fairmont Pacific Rim.  That was an incredible stay -The Seattle Four Seasons should take a page or two out of their training manual.

    I've never been rich enough to stay at a 5 star Hotel, and may never get the opportunity, and I'm sure the guests get a royal treatment from the staff....however, I'm on a rant about my treatment from the HR and kitchen staff during my interview process.
    I got a call following my responding to their craigslist ad, and after a pleasant talk with the Sous Chef, we made an appointment for an interview with the instruction "to look GQ" -O.K., I went out and got a haircut taking off 5 inches of hair, shaved the goatee, put on the suit, and showed up for the interview on a Thursday, interview went well, and I was told that I would hear from them on Monday to schedule the next interview with HR. Monday came and went, Tuesday came and went, I called them Wednesday, and was told they are busy and could they call back in an hour. Nothing. No call, no nothing. this is supposed to be a 5 star establishment. This is not professional etiquette. It's shoddy treatment, and a prospective applicant should not be treated like this if they are good enough o be called in, in the first place.

Don't even get me started on the robes in there. The brunch on Sunday was out of this world. I had Gluten Free waffles like I've never had before with a divine lemon custard and maple syrup, fresh cut berries. Just heaven. We had an issue with our bathtub in our room, but the front desk was quick to make it up in other ways. You really cannot go wrong here. And everyone remembering your name is a nice touch.

    SIX WORDS

    I woke up, but my sweetie was still in slumberland.  Pikes Place Market was just a few blocks from the hotel, so I decided to waste some time there.  I slipped on my running shorts and Pumas and quietly left our room.  Before leaving the property, I searched by the front desk for some hydration.  Their neo-modern lobby was so much a work of art they forgot to build a simple beverage counter.  Refreshments was an afterthought relegated to a tiny area in the gym upstairs.  No one else was there.  I ignored the rows of pristine exercise machines and drank coffee as if preparing to get sh!t done.

    Outside, I filled my cruddy LA lungs with Seattle's morning air.  Ready to follow the foot traffic along Union Street, I noticed a long flight of stairs descending a hill beside the hotel.  An impromptu detour down the steps led to a desolate but historically rich warehouse district by the bay.  I ran along the waterfront until reaching the Market, where I bought a croissant for my sweetie.  Running up the hill back to the Four Seasons, I could see the stairs were worn from years of use by the dock workers of old Seattle.  My thighs burned, making apparent the absurdity of the hotel's StairMasters.

    I peeked into our room.  My sweetie was still a captive of that cozy bed. I dropped off the croissant and went to explore the rooftop pool.  There was a stylish couple lounging there -- a Birkin would go well with her and a Berlinetta with him.  I had no clue I wanted some lemon water and a chilled moist towel until the handsome pool attendant brought them to me.  Still hot from the run, I stripped to my shorts and dunked myself in the shallow geometric pool. It was modest in size, barely swimmable.  It may look like I was doing laps, but the pool at the Four Seasons was at that moment a public bath.

    I sat by the fire-pit to dry off, looked from the pool balcony at Elliott Bay, and became lulled by the ships in the distance.  Returning to my room in the elevator, a man who exuded snooty-douchebaggery stood behind me, and I could see from the reflections he was glaring at me.  Thoughts of lines from a movie I'd seen created some inner laughter:
             What are you staring at?
             The back of your head.
             Well don't.  Stare at the back of your own fu@king head.

    My sweetie and I spent the rest of the day exploring the city and returned to the hotel exhausted.  We bought some salted caramel chocolates from Fran's in the lobby and savored them in our room.  I took a warm bath and flipped channels on the TV which they had built into the bathroom mirror.  On the news, Apple was unveiling a new gadget called an iPad. I remember being more awed by the TV in the mirror.  Later that night, my sweetie whispered six words to me before we dozed off in the soft embrace of that bed, a furniture cursed with knowing many secrets but lacking the means to tell them.

    It's said that no event in our life is ever repeated.  Each day occurs once, then it's gone forever.  However, vivid details of that day at the Four Seasons, though it felt so simple at the time, have became fondly seared into my mind.  Two years later, I'm still able to relive it

    I've stayed here quite a lot.  Like probably thirty times or more.  The staff are generally really nice, and the rooms are exactly what you'd expect.  Big fancy bathrooms to impress kept spouses, big clean rooms with sparse, mostly-functional modern decor, and a fabulous location.

    For a spendy cyclotourist, it's actually a pretty good jumping off point for points further northwest via ferry.
    You can feel the slight unease in the staff's voices as they try to figure out what kind of guest you are -- this place mixes Microsoft and other business travelers with far more upscale non-working types, plus honeymooners and the occasional spendy bumpkin or convention-goer.  As a middle-class kid who'd never pay this kind of money for accommodations on my own dime, I find it both entertaining and surreal.

    Here's what's great:
    1) Friendly staff and generally accommodating place -- they never complain when I bring my bikes up to my room, spend half an hour assembling or disassembling/packing bikes on the front driveway, or anything else like that.  I appreciate that a lot.
    2) Big, clean rooms, lovely bathrooms and big soaking tubs
    3) Reasonable gym, not big but sufficient.
    4) Firepit on the pool deck.
    5) Location.
    6) They started giving out free granola.  I don't know why this matters, but I like it.

    Here's what's not so great:
    1) The beds are way too soft, and feel pretty worn despite being spotless.  I feel major indentations in them which can sometimes be pretty uncomfortable.  I tend to line myself up right down the middle of the huge mattresses to avoid them, or end up sleeping diagonally.
    2) The wifi is ridiculously overpriced and the connectivity is pretty lousy.
    3) The pool is too shallow to swim in, about 3.5-4'.
    4) The pool deck closes at 10pm, and when it's open, the freeway noise is quite loud.  Presumably the early closure is to prevent noise issues for the upstairs residents, but I can't really see that -- the freeway is always noisy and the rooms are well-insulated for sound.  Personally, I'd like to be able to hot-tub after a late work dinner.
    5) The TVs in the rooms are not easily configured to accept external connections -- if it's on but you're not watching regular TV they periodically revert back to the in-hotel advertising programming, like every 20 minutes or so.  If you want to use the TV as a monitor for work, or to watch a movie you brought yourself, it doesn't really work.  Pity, because they went to the trouble of wiring the rooms for A/V input/output with HDMI, component and USB ports.  I wish they'd thought a little more about how the whole system works together.
    6) For the price of the valet, I could probably be in and out of a nearby garage *quicker*, without having to think to call down 10 minutes before.  They also frequently forget to actually get my car when I call.  In the morning this can add up to that little bit of stress you are expecting to not have when you're at a luxury hotel.

    So yeah:  It's a really nice and generally well-run luxury hotel, and always my first choice in Seattle, but it wouldn't be that difficult for a more budget place to unseat them on my list with some careful attention to detail.  As a business traveler I'm not that demanding, but the stuff I'm demanding about I'm not likely to *ask* for, as I'm not there to be pampered and spend time making things "just so".  I just want a place to have the basics right -- firm bed, good water pressure, fast internet, functional gym, easy in-out parking, pleasant rooms.

    First world problem, for sure.

    But if you're a Microsoftie staying on the east side, try the Hotel Bellevue for similar rates, both corporate and non-corporate.  Damn nice place with a crazy-huge health club.

    We have stayed here twice and loved the experience both times.  The first time was a wonderful experience.  My wife and I got first class treatment from every aspect of the stay.  The view was great, the food here was very good (we were here for a large event).  In the morning we walked to Pike Place Market for coffee and breakfast.
    This time they allowed me to check in early in the morning before a conference.  I left my bags with the valet and when I actually checked into my room in the evening, my bags weren't there.  I assumed they would be up shortly but eventually had to call the front desk.  This was a (small) mistake--but mistakes are allowed.  The true test is how a company recovers.  In this case, the staff, specifically Alec B. at the front desk, recovered very well.  He took care of things even though it was not his fault.  When we got back to our room after our evening event, there was a hand written note apologizing for the inconvenience and a bottle of wine and chocolates for my wife and I.  the rest of our stay was fantastic, as expected.  Thank you for a great experience.

    My husband and I spent a weekend in Seattle to celebrate his birthday.  Service at the Four Seasons was impeccable.  Prior to check in, I called the hotel ahead of time to discuss options that room service could provide to surprise my husband upon check in (e.g., treats, champagne, etc. in the room).  I got caught up at work and never got back to the hotel to confirm what type of surprise I wanted, so I did not expect anything.  When we checked in at the hotel, the receptionist wished my husband a happy birthday and we found a gorgeous little treat in our room for his birthday celebration.  Service during our stay remained consistently great.  Our room was gorgeous and comfortable - we had a bay view and the bathroom was absolutely fantastic!  I do not think I have ever seen such a large tub.  It easily fits two people.  Finally, the Four Seasons is located right next to Pikes Market, so getting around Seattle was super easy.  We put lots of steps in our fit bits, but it was absolutely enjoyable doing so.

    If you are looking for a classy, beautiful, top notch place to stay in Seattle.  This hotel gets it ON POINT.

    From opening the door for you every time, walking you to the elevator after check-in, TV screen in the bathroom mirror, state of the art fitness center and spa, infinity edge pool and great view of Puget sound and the Great Wheel, I would definitely stay here again!  

    ART, the cafe/bar in the lobby was a great place for a couple drinks before heading out, or a great place to end the evening.

    Don't forget about the house car!  If you need a ride somewhere, the host will take you to your destination in style (2012 Escalade), and pick you up when ready!  Though, when we were ready to be picked up, something happened to the car, and we were unable to get picked up.  Thankfully Awua by ElGaucho had a car (more like a mission van) to bring us back, not in style.  HAHA.  

    This hotel is VERY close to Pike Place Market, and shopping is just a few blocks away.  If you forget something at home (like I did..a hairbrush), CityTarget is a 1/2 block away!  

    This is my new 'getaway' hotel.  Love the Four Seasons.

    The artsy decor is very tasteful without any hint of pretense here. My party of four came for a late dinner starting at 9:30. We had a team of five wait staff accommodating our every need. And onto the food. The potato combo was decent and had a variety of dips but wasn't anything special. However the salads and entrees were excellent.  Cod with Ginger and soy was Cooked to perfection with delicate flavors separated but worked great together. I really appreciate when the chef knows how to prepare fish. The salmon was also perfectly grilled, tender and juicy with a slight crispness on the outside. Filet mignon was a superb cut of high grade beef. Good meat doesn't need to be covered in dressings.  I could go on but you get the picture.  The service topped everything off, friendly, informative, helpful and engaging. At one point, a member of my party spilled a drink in his lap and before we realized what to do, three staff members had come to the rescue with napkins and a new drink. ;)

    Put an exceptional experience like the Four Seasons in the middle of Seattle next to Pike Place Market up on a hill with views of Elliott Bay and you have all the ingredients for a magical visit.
    My wife and I stayed here in 2012 and 2013 and are already planning our next visit. We literally didn't want to leave after checkout...they practically had to ask us to leave because we loved it here so much.

    So much cool stuff within walking distance. And the hotel's car is available to drive you around town within a mile radius.

    The staff is great, the attention to detail is great, the rooms and views are great--all together it's one of our favorite places to stay in the world.

    Top notch.

    From the moment we arrived, they treated as though we were royalty.  Ive never been to a hotel where they were so good to their guests.  There's so much to tell, but with so little time.. I'll have to update this later.

    On a small note... I brought my art pad with me and sadly forgot my pencils.  They had one pencil there next to a writing pad.  I ended up using it and wearing it down pretty quickly.  I decided to go down to the front desk and see if I could have them sharpen this one.  They sharpened it.. but also gave me 5 more and said I could have all I wanted if I needed.

    How awesome is that?

    This is the only hotel I'll stay in when visiting Seattle. I stay here at least once a year when I've visiting my best friend. Ask for a corner room with a panoramic view of Puget Sound, otherwise you might get a view of a wall of a neighboring building or a view of the SAM (i.e. Seattle Art Museum). The pool is amazing - I recommend having friends over for an afternoon impromptu pool party if you just happen to catch a day of sun in Seattle. Most likely it will be raining though, and in that case, you can easily walk to Pike Place Market. And as much as I hate Starbucks, I always stop into the Starbucks here for a tall soy latte (it's the flagship starbucks). After all, when in Seattle....

    The hotel also has a house car which will drive you where you want to go in the area so you can avoid the dreadful plight that is taking a cab. The hotel staff is amazing, as to be expected. They fulfilled my every request...from printing a photograph on my blackberry to veganizing all of my room service meals. In conclusion, Seattle is quite possibly my favorite city on the West Coast, and I attribute most of my proclivity to the memory of Kurt Cobain and the Four Seasons Seattle.

    We had some hiccups at check-in having to do with something that was supposed to be handled before we arrived.  It was blamed on the desk person being new to the hotel.  What bugged me the most was that I had called twice in advance and was assured all was ok.  The guest esxperience manager was very nice to take care of things and upgrade us to a nicer room for our trouble, which she didn't have to do.   She also sent some nice treats to our room from the confectioner.

    We ate at ART restaurant our first night.  Food and service was very good.  My wife commented that the duck was dry and they comped it even though we really didn't want that... she hate half of it!  They didn't realize that it is her job to find something wrong wiht everything!  ;-) I thought the food was very good and well presented.  Service was great.

    Threre were a couple of people at the resstaurant and other parts of the property that seemed to be "phoning in" the customer service, but 98% of everyone there was genuine and truly helpful beyond what you would get any where else.  It is really hard to train "genuine" customer service attitude.  Four Seasons does a great job of that.

    It's a very nice hotel and if contemporary is your style, you will love it.  You are paying for the location though.  It is about the most perfect location for tourism in Seattle.  Four Seasons always comes through on taking care of their guests.  Beds were very comfy, room service was prompt and food was delicious.

    Areas of opportunity based on our expereince:

    1) Had a hard time getting the free wi-fi to stay connected so we could listen to iHeart radio as there is no radio in the room.  We finally paid for the upgraded wi-fi and after some connection issues, got a steady connection on a laptop.  iPad and phone still couldn't maintain a steady connection.

    2) The showers are great, but there is a regular shower head and a rain style shower head.  No matter what we did over 5 nights in two rooms, we couldn't keep the rain shower head from dripping cold drops on our head when using the wall mounted shower head.  I think you could take one of those shower caps and put it around the rain shower to prevent this as long as you are certain which lever controls which shower head!

    3) Our first room was a "partial bay view" room.  The view of the bay was extremely partial.  The only way to open the curtains was to bunch them to the left side and that meant the bunched curtains were covering the bay view section of the window.  If you want a bay view... don't get the partial room.

    All in all we found this to be a very nice property with top notch service for the most part and great food.  The location is perfect.  It is a great home base for first time urban explorers in Seattle as we were.

    Not bad.

    No, I'm not drunk or high saying that a Four Seasons property isn't bad. I've just gotten spoiled by international hotels in my travels lately.

    The room was nice, clean and served its purpose. The bathroom was decked out and the view of the water was pretty nice. I'll bet if I were there for the sunset, that would be pretty cool.

    The room was comfortable; actually more room than I needed. However, I was in town for a friend's wedding and her family put me up there because they ran out of room at another place.

    So, I shouldn't be complaining, which I'm not - I just don't feel that my experience warranted a five star rating, because I felt like I was a customer at a nice place. In my travels, I've gotten used to feeling like someone's guest in their home, which happens to be a very nice place.

    Stayed 2 nights here a month ago, location is great a short walk to aquarium and many other fun things to do and see. Visited Seattle with some friends specifically to visit a friends night club Mason Manor a short drive away. Upon our return to our room
    We decided on a few night caps with friends, but we're disrupted by security a number of times, cutting our morning rather short. Front desk staff were all great and very helpful.

    If you're looking to spoil yourself with a nice hotel in Seattle, you won't find a better place than the Four Seasons.  Great rooms....very modern.  There's even a TV built into the mirror in the bathroom!  Yes, you wan watch TV while you relax in the tub!  The price is not as bad as the other Four Seasons.  You can get rooms here for under $300.  

    They also have a nice hotel lobby bar.  How nice?  People that are not even staying at the hotel are coming here to chill.  Great view of the water.

    The location is also perfect.  It's a short stroll to the famous Pike's Place Market and a short cab ride to the Space Needle!

    I'm a Ritz Carlton girl.

    No, I'm not pretentious, or spoiled! Ok, sometimes I am spoiled. However, I've stayed in almost every type of hotel....Sleep Inn, Hampton Inns, Hyatt, W, Four Seasons, Ritz, Westin....close to everything.

    I was never impressed with the Four Seasons. I always felt like they missed the mark on things that the Ritz managed to pull off so effortlessly. So needless to say, I wasn't expecting much at this Four Seasons hotel. I was pleasantly surprised.

    The Good
    Great location if you want some peace & quiet away from the tourists.
    The best thing about this hotel is the bed. I could have slept for a whole week. A mountain of pillows and down comforter goodness! Harbor view rooms had a beautiful view of the water. The marble bathrooms were tastefully decorated & had Bulgari bath products. Most of the staff were very nice.

    The Bad
    Towels were super rough. The bathtub is way too narrow! I'm not a big girl and I can't imagine anyone who is a little wider being able to fit.

    More Good
    My boyfriend had called a few days in advance to arrange for a few special items. They executed everything perfectly. Beautiful floral arrangement in the room, chocolate covered strawberries (the best I've ever had) and a trail of rose petals from the door to the bed. They did a great job.

    More Bad
    When you pay $600+ for a room per night, they should give you free internet. I mean charging $76 for toast should cover the internet costs, don't you think?

    I'm not sure it is possible to go wrong with a Four Seasons hotel. They set the bar in customer service for all other hotels without question.
    Very professional and friendly staff at the front desk. Concierge is excellent. Restaurant staff is great too!
    Rooms are simple, upscale modern. Very comfy beds and nice comfy bedding. However my favorite part of the room was the bathroom. Huge fast filling, deep soaking tub and if that isn't perfection there is a tiny TV on the mirror over the sink that you can watch in the tub or even simply putting on make up.

    This review is based on a wedding attendance only because there was no need to book a room.  The valet service is very friendly and efficient, but everything else didn't seem to match the reputation that the name Four Seasons entails.  

    I believe the food was catered by the hotel so I'll list impressions here.  They served hors d'oeuvres in an inexplicably drafty drawing room that required a sweater to keep your core temperature normal.  Offerings I saw:  mini salmon cake sliders, truffle cheese and cucumbers on croutons, mini mushroom quiches and others which were good but not memorable.  

    After an hour of socializing, we were shepherded into another large room very simply dressed where the married couple-to-be exchanged their agnostic vows in the presence of parents, friends and a golden retriever.  Amazing view of the Seattle waterfront on a gorgeous day.  They couldn't have ordered a better one!  

    Finally, they coaxed us into the dining room with the promise of gourmet food,  its own dance floor, impressive intergalactic mothership chandeliers and lighting scheme, resounding R&B soundtrack, and elegantly decorated tables.  

    First course:  Asparagus bisque with shaved truffle sandwich - tasty!
     
    Second course:  Young spinach salad, breakfast radishes wrapped in a carrot "roll" topped with a crisp onion dressing and a side of Humboldt Fog cheese (some kind of brie that proved unpopular with those less exposed to Seattle's artisan cheese society which included most of my table) - not too shabby and I don't normally eat dressing!

    Main entree:  Pan Seared Sea Bass with Mediterranean vegetables and olive oil sauce which is what I chose (very good!).  Others had that grilled Cote de Boeuf with asparagus, baby carrots, truffle herbed mashed potatoes with a choice of Bearnaise sauce or a red wine demi reduction each served in their own cruet.  The red meat fans enjoyed their choice.  I didn't see any one try the grilled vegetable ravioli with sage butter sauce.  

    Summary:  Good but not spectacular eats, decent ambiance, but nothing mind-blowing or exceptional that would make this location stand out as a must-have wedding choice.

    Another fabulous hotel! Amazing view of the Puget Sound and Seattle's famous Ferris Wheel. Everyone was friendly as always. Had a two queen bed room and was a little disappointed by the room I was getting for the price. However, it was still beautiful. Great room service and amazing food in the area. Also enjoyed the dry-cleaning service as I was traveling around the country over a short time period.

    This hotel does not live up to the Four Seasons standards. Attention to detail is sorely lacking. My room rate entitled me to an upgrade based on availability. I was told there were no upgrades available when I checked in, yet the next category room was available for booking online. After some back and forth upgrade was granted. Not off to a good start. During my 3 night stay, I didn't receive turn down service twice. Housekeeping is either understaffed or lazy. They intentionally start late and do not get around to many of the rooms until 9pm. There is only a 50/50 chance hotel staff will acknowledge you, and rarely with a smile. Ordered doughnut holes from room service, they were undercooked and raw. Burger was missing condiments. Breakfast buffet is a simple continental style, with no stations. Got a 1pm checkout but my keycard was disabled at 12pm and a hotel staffer was pounding on my door to kick me out by 12:30pm. The views from the partial bay view rooms look at building next door. The bay can only be seen if you are standing in the corner. Skip these rooms. Deluxe bay view rooms are much nicer, but you may have to look through/past a smoke stack or public storage building. For the best views, get deluxe bay view room on an upper floor on the north side of the building. As everyone says the hotel location is excellent.

    I took my family to Seattle for Memorial Day weekend and stayed all three nights at the Four Seasons. I was a traveling with my wife and kids (ages 2.5 and 4.5), so I was a bit reluctant and afraid of sticking out or being too disruptive. Once we arrived, though, we felt right at home. The front desk staff, bell and room service were amazing and very responsive. I called the front desk at least 5 times during our stay and requested various things and each time they responded within 5 minutes- that's service!

    Also, the hotel is in a perfect location- just a block from the Pike Place Market and about 6 blocks from the monorail.

    I can't wait to visit again!

    Went here for valentines day. Hotel has great valet, great front desk, and great views all around. Maybe it's just me but I was expecting my room to be spectacular for the price I was paying. Everything was so magical until I went to our room and I didn't see the difference between that and a fancy Inn. The bathroom was better then the room. Great soak tubs. Maybe I'm just expecting too much?

    Awesome hotel with total white glove service.  Geesh.  The front desk attendants all look you in the eye, and smile, and address you by your last name.  It's a nice departure from what we are stuck with here in LA.  The restaurant is awesome, and quiet.  I stumbled downstairs in my shorts and a sweatshirt, and had my own little corner where I could take in the magnificent views and the peace.  There's a breakfast buffet in the morning, which I'll have to try next time.  

    This property is one of those hotel/residence buildings.  I wasn't so wild with the architecture, however.  Your first impression of the grounds off the sidewalk is a dark, concrete enclosed carport.  You then step into a small and drab, lobby that is dying for some color.  Nothing picturesque to greet visitors or onlookers.  Why didn't they take advantage of the views on the west side of the building to create a lobby/lounge/bar?  There is a lounge, but it's part of the whole restaurant experience.

    Well, the crappy lobby/architecture doesn't diminish the quality of the hotel or the service.  I can't imagine how it could get any better in Seattle.

    Exceptional indeed. Made my visit a hundred times more memorable. I felt transported to a different world while I was there.
    5/5 everything!!!

    Location:
    Prime location next to Pikes Place market with wonderful panoramic views of Puget Sound from the rooms. I love the location since it is at the end of a big downtown street - very safe and quaint and easy to get to unlike others. They have their own private square. Lots of cool touristy places nearby. Great food establishments as well. So many options.

    Lobby:
    Stunning slabs of stone and glass. Very unique design that exudes best in class.  The fireplace is funky and welcoming. I sat there many days warming up. It is notched on a corner.

    Room:
    What a view of the Puget Sound to start or finish the day with. You can't beat that while still being in the hotspot of downtown.
    Rooms were absolutely quiet and masterfully designed. Cozy and immaculate and insanely fresh.
    The enormous Separate bathroom suite was a great idea. Total privacy. The bathroom mirror had a TV inside of it which was the coolest feature I've seen at a hotel thus far. The tub was solid granite and massive. The shower was separate, huge, and had two shower heads. The rain option was soothing. OK I'll stop.

    The toiletries are all Loccitane and smell great.

    The sitting area and recliner are relaxing. The office workspace is expansive.  The bed was extremely comfortable.

    The cafe left free fresh granola baking kits in the room. Amazing stuff. What a touch.

    They also deliver you a free newspaper of your choice everyday in a sleek black decorated vinyl bag. Classy.

    They also left me fresh snacks and water! Surprise.

    Staff:
    The Wake up calls were personal and they even came up and rang my doorbell one day when I left the phone off the hook. They would tell you the weather and ask if you needed their ground car or an umbrella. What service! Nothing like hearing a real nice person telling you it will rain :) .

    The concierge and front desk staff were so helpful and accommodating. Couldn't ask for more.
    The front door men were also cook to hang out with and get tips on where to go. They also gave me an umbrella. A nice long one with a wooden handle.

    The Art restaurant has black cod - give it a try. It is fresh.

    Price:
    Worth every penny. I choose to stay here and walk 8 blocks to my conference daily. Pleasant walk and the ground car was available but I wanted to sightsee and get coffee.

    This place will not disappoint you in any way. Even the street facing rooms are cool and have the Seattle Art Museum view and lights.

    A true escape.

    What can be said? Impeccable service, nice sheets, beautiful view, well located, attentive and friendly staff. How often do you check into a hotel and it feels like home? Restaurant could be a bit more refined just to match everything else that is perfect to near perfect. Breakfast buffet is missing some basics - like scrambled eggs and could have a bit more fish given it is Seattle - but what is set-out is great. The mini-bar in the room has a "happy hour", which is clever.  I do not plan to stay anywhere else in Seattle.

    The Four Seasons in Seattle is top notch.  I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of my stay (4 nights).  Lets go through some points:

    Hotel it self - Very modern, clean, and in a prime location.  Although not the best looking Four Seasons I've stayed in it is certainly not a slouch with it comes to aesthetics.  The location is absolutely unbeatable and located about a block or less from Pike Place Market and other bars/restaurants in the area. The location itself is a good enough reason to stay here.

    Staff - Very nice, courteous, and willing to help.  I had to inquire about a rental car and the concierge made every effort to help me find a good deal.  The girl at the front desk told me the must go to, non touristy, spots that I need to check out.  She provided me with a map and list of places I needed to go.  I think I spent 15 minutes talking to her and she was very helpful. The valet guys are great and even took the liberty of dropping me off at a local restaurant (had to Uber my way back though). I arrived quite early before my check in and they staff held my bags and dropped them off into my room as soon as it became available.  All I had to do was grab the keys from the front desk and head up.

    Amenities - Perfect.  The pool has an infinity edge view of the water front and is heated.  The outside area has a small fully stocked bar and a great fire pit to sit around at night. But given the style of building and location, the sun may not hit the pool area for a very long period, so if you're looking to catch some rays and work on your tan - dont expect too much. The fitness center has almost every basic thing you need to get a good work out in.  Equipment is new, clean, and all working.  The C2 rower there is brand new and personally one of my favorites.  There business center only has two computers but a full laser color printer.  

    Dinning - I cant remember the exact name of the restaurant/bar down stairs in the lobby but it is nice.  I didnt spend too much time there but the atmosphere seemed modern and hip.  Like a trendy lounge.  The beer selection is typical but very very reasonably priced.  I dont think you'd break the bank grabbing dinner and a couple drinks here.  

    Room - I just had the basic "deluxe" room and it was more than what I expected.  The view wasnt great but that's never a big deal for me (except for that horrible instance I had at the Times Square Crowne Plaza - read that one).  The bathroom has a small TV in the mirror so you can watch CNN or whatever while getting ready.  The shampoo, conditioner, and body wash were by far the best I've ever had at a hotel.  Also, they provided robes and slippers which were very comfortable.  The mini bar is stocked up with a great selection of beer and liquor.  Note that it is weight activated so if you take that mini bottle of gin out for too long, it will charge you for it.  I think it's activated when you remove it and shut the door.  But there was no bottom shelf liquor there.  

    Deffinitely consider this a place to stay when you visit Seattle.

    Agree with Richard's comment, Partial Bay View horrible, stuck us in far corner looking at other building and adjacent to another room which always had full curtains open and lights on all night. We were forced to keep our drapes closed, so much for view. Restaurant closes early, so be warned. No extra touches you'd expect, stayed at Omni last month, have pot of coffee rack morning, workout gear for you, etc. Room dated, no USB at desk, etc., but phone jacks. Electronic minibar prevents private use... and wifi was horrible, constantly knocks you off and very slow do bring your own hotspot. Has gone downhill in past 5 years, was a definite 5 star then... only the rates have kept up with the times and their 5 star rating.

    Absolutely amazing hotel.  It is located right next to Pikes Market, and a short walk to the aquarium.   All the rooms and beds are great, not to mention a beautiful pool.

    I would say that parking is crazy stiff at $41 a night, however they told me that there are a ton of break ins to cars downtown and saving $5 a night would be risk taking.  So I did use google maps and Yelp to see other parking options and sure enough they were littered with breaking.  So pay the $41 and be secure.

    Very impressive hotel.  The location is perfect and very central.  There are many restaurants and of course the Pikes Market nearby.

    We had the opportunity to stay in a suite this week on the tenth floor overlooking the water.  Wow!  It was beyond spacious and opulent.  

    The concierge was very helpful in suggesting some restaurants for after the theater.  Also, the front desk staff were very friendly and professional.

    If you ever have the opportunity to stay here, jump at the chance.

    Spectacular!  Vegans Rejoice :-)!!  

    This was a family staycation and our little travelers were a 5 year old girl and 7 year old boy. They had little amenities of apples, apple juices, and welcome notes waiting for each of them. They also had little robes and slippers, but the best things were the little stuffed animals (owls) that they clutched as they fell asleep. It's a very kid-friendly hotel with a pool, hot tub, and complimentary kid-friendly movie rentals. The hot tub was GREAT on a cold night. Plus there is a fireplace right next to it, so you can warm up there too.

    Our children were so impressed that they wrote thank you notes to the staff (of their own accord - we did not tell them to do this).We are a family of vegans and very, very happy with their vegan brunch menu via Art Restaurant. Vegan or not, do yourself a favor and get the vegan blueberry pancakes. Amazing! We almost licked our plates!!

    Four Seasons Hotel Seattle is one of Seattle's best hotel.  This hotel combines amazing service, views, and of course location to make it an oasis in the heart of Seattle's downtown.  If you're looking to stay a weekend in Seattle, Four Seasons Hotel Seattle should be on your list.

    My Overall Rating - 5 Stars (Atmosphere, Service, Facility, Return)

    Atmosphere -.Let's start with location.  This hotel is two blocks from the bay, from Pike Place Market, and so many great locations.  Ask for a room overlooking the bay and you'll be rewarded with spectacular views of the Seattle Ferris Wheel, Aquarium, and Puget Sound.  Inside you'll be greeted by a warm and contemporary lobby.  Everything is first class, but the location is what sets it apart.  1 Star.

    Service - I don't know how they do it, but everyone at the hotel seems to remember you once they meet you.  We used the concierge desk days in advance of our arrival to book restaurants that we were unable to book on our own.   The doormen will also aid in getting you transportation, including a private car for close drop offs.  Turn down service is also provided, and this great service is not offered by many other hotels.  1 Star.

    Facility - Location is key, but the rooms are equally impressive.  Bathrooms have TV's inside the mirror and are all network connected.  The bathroom is spacious and the beds comfortable.  You'll find the pool and fitness center on the fourth floor, and the view also overlook the water.  Always ask for a room with a view and you won't be disappointed.  The hotel itself is about 6 years old so you can expect everything to be in tip top shape.  The room was so nice I ALMOST wanted to stay in, but its proximity to Seattle's best landmarks will pull you out.  2 Stars.

    Will I Return? - Yes.  You simply cannot match the level of service, amenities, and amazing location.  Yes, you are paying a premium to stay here, but it is no doubt worth a visit and return.  1 Star.

    My Yelp Rating Scale (Sum of all parts):
    1 Star - Atmosphere - Is it a cool dive?  Perhaps an upscale place?  No matter the type, atmosphere plays a big part and I'll give a star if I like it or thinks it has great charm.
    1 Star - Service - You can have a great meal with bad service.  But that's also what can make a five star joint drop to four.  It's important to the dining experience that service is great and on point.
    2 Stars - Facility - I'll award up to two stars for the facility, since this is the main reason we go out.  Sometimes the extra star is given for value, but it's really all about the facility.
    1 Star - Will I come back? - If I know for a fact I'll return, I'll give this a star. A place has to make an impression for me to return.

    Each Category can be given up to 1 star except food (2 stars) because I consider all these categories important to the overall dining experience.  I will sum them up to provide my final Yelp score.

    One of the best hotel experiences.

    From the time I entered the door to check out, Five Star experience. The Concierge assisted me in delivering gifts to two of my very important clients in town. The front desk accommodated my request of high floor with great views. Room service's food were above average but not the best. Lovely turn down service. I have travelled to many states and countires for business, this is one of the Best Four Season Hotels. Without a doubt, I will stay again.
