This is not your typical Grand Hyatt. I think it was a high end boutique hotel the Hyatt purchased. Either way, the rooms and bathrooms are spectacular! Comfy king size beds and bathroom with an amazing bath tub and shower. The views from the room are amazing. The service is wonderful as well. I can't babble enough on how great  I think this hotel is. The location is perfect and walking distance to Pike Marketplace. You can get great weekend deals on Travelocity or Expedia to stay here. I definitely recommend it for a romantic weekend stay in Seattle.

Although I didn't stay here (the room rate here was recently $600/night), my company did host a cocktail reception at a meeting venue here.  Conveniently located near the Convention Center and in the heart of downtown, there's no question that the Grand Hyatt lends a certain panache to your social event...as it well should, since you'll pay an arm and a leg for the privilege.  At least the catering staff was extremely attentive and quick to respond.  And the appetizers (as I was told) were quite delicious.

The way a business hotel should be. Stylish lobby (a bit of the Pacific Northwest vibe, but not overdone), sharply dressed, attentive staff, really good in-room dining, wireless that actually works, an iron that doesn't leak water, big bathroom with full length mirrors, thick comforter, print your boarding pass in the hotel lobby, good amphitheater-style conference room space for presentations.  Overall they made me one happy hombre.

This hotel is awesome.  I've stayed there twice now, once on the night of my wedding.  On that night we got in late and I mentioned to the people at the desk that we had been married and they upgraded us to a suite for no additional charge.  I love the modern design of the place, everything about it is excellent.

To keep this simple and short, stay here.  Its quick, its easy to get all around town and hit the main offices downtown.  If you have business on the east side (Bellevue, Redmond) then this is not an ideal spot.

Absolutely loved this hotel!  I wanted to take the bathtub home with me!  We had a room with an excellent view.  We had a view of the spaceneedle and of the water and pike's place.  The bathroom was gorgeous... gave me some ideas for remodeling at our house.  The gym was pretty nice.  I spent a total of about 6 hours in there over the weekend.  The equipment was fairly nice.  Would have been good if they had a spin bike.  The one upright bike they had was only adjustable up and down for the seat.  You couldn't adjust the handle bars or the seat back and forward.  One of the treadmills seemed like it was off balance.  An added bonus was the cold wet towels.  There weren't any fans in the gym so the wet towels were a nice relief.  They had plenty of fresh towels and some filtered water.  The music was kind of annoying but they had tvs on the cardio equipment.  The hotel was located close to everything we needed.  It was great!  Will definitely stay here again!!!

We stayed at the Hyatt during a weekend trip to Seattle in April.  It was wonderful!   The room was beautiful and we had an amazing view of the Needle, the water, and Pike Market.  The beds were wonderful, and the bathrooms luxurious.  Everything was clean and quiet.  We were a quick walk down to the Pike Market area and close to everything.  My husband got me into the gym on our last day and I am glad we went...it was beautiful, very Asian-Zen with deep mahagony wood and great equipment.  Great amenities in the gym too.  Room service was very good too.  We'll definitely stay there again.

Great location! We booked a junior corner suite and it was kinda small, so I think next time we will just get a regular room with a king bed. Everything is around here! The public transportation in this city is amazing! We took the central light rail from Seatac airport to the Westlake port and only had to walk about a block to the hotel. 5 bucks for 2 people VS the 32 dollar flat rate fee in a cab + tip so we saved some cash there...then they have a monorail, hop on that if you are interested in seeing the music experience or the space needle! Pike market ofcourse is great! Cool vendors selling almonds,purses,body butters, shirts...all kinds of goodies..Take advantage of the fantastic bath tub :) I went to lush based on another review to get a bath fizzy...thanks for that recommendation. We ordered room service for breakfast one morning bc we had a tour and the guy really messed up, spilled milk, forgot our fruit for the oatmeal...but then we received a call comping us for that and giving us another meal comped so we ordered breakfast the next day, all very good food, fruit was fresh and their coffee is pretty good! We weren't even really that mad about it, the server went above and beyond to accommodate us! Id stay here again!

Happy New Year. last minute decision to come into the city for New years Eve at the needle. Mission: not wanting to head back to Poulsbo - find a place to stay. Checked all around needle with nothing striking my fancy. Found a great deal at the Hyatt. AAA discount price was comparable to lower class (ala Holiday Inn Express) places near needle then they gave us an upgrade - Bonus! Discount also came with 50.00 off breakfast menu at Ruth Chris'. Every one we talked to was helpful and every detail was splendid. Remember we didn't have to stay anywhere but were extremely pleased we stayed there. Took the monorail to see the party and back - a no brainer. I'd go there again just for the shower.

Seattle on a November weekend means cool temperatures and maybe just a slight chance of rain. Meaning it might just rain the whole weekend. If your visit to Seattle is for business or pleasure and wanting to stay downtown. You have to stay here. Why? Well location to start. A rare thing lies across the street and close by. Shopping mall with movie theater et al, Good resturants like Ruth's Chris off the lobby(no need to go outside), Starbucks well jsut about every corner but also the original is close by, want to see flying fish, Can Can dancers? Well just hop or skate on straight down the street to Piike Place. The monorail is on he way if you want to head to the Spce Needle. Pioneer Square is also close.
But Mark, there are other places.  Yes there are. Here you have spacious rooms, marble tiled floor, deep basin bath with a cascade of water tumbling to fill it. The shower is seperate. When you walk in there is a nook that feels like a mud room. A mirror and shelf for your actual keys, no haning Do Not Disturb sign. Don't think you need a sock like those days of college. Just press the button illuminating a small light. Rain in Seattle and you forgot your umbrella didn't you. No worries mate. Check the closet for a nice full size umbrella.
Hungry. Well Ruth's Chris is off the lobby as is Starbuck, small seperate spa, and few places to shop. The meeting rooms are big and spacious. This places has an auditorium with stage, cat5 and nice AV set up
Easy walk to many thing to see and do in downtown Seattle.

One of the best hotels in downtown seattle as far as I am concerned.  Ive stayed here a few times and have never been let down. The rooms are very nicely done, bathrooms are awesome.  Have to love that extra large tub for 2.  Also the attached Ruth's Chris is a big bonus.  The room service breakfasts were very good, although a bit expensive.  Also the switch on the wall that controls the window shades makes one feel royal.

I love hotels and this is my favorite hotel of all time. The location is perfect, the staff is amazing and the rooms are out of this world. Let's talk about the bathrooms. HUGE!!! Spa tub, walk in glass showers big enough for you and at least 3 of your closest friends (if you are rollin' like that...lol). All of the little extras make it even more perfect (cotton swabs, cotton balls, White Ginger Body Wash - It went away for a while but has since returned). The bed as well as the linens are great....and when you are ready to call it a night, just hit the switch next to the headboard and watch the automatic black out blinds roll down and seal out the world. I love this place!!!!

I was really impressed with this hotel! Before arriving, I knew it was a four star hotel and figured the location would be great for touring the city.  

The room was great! LIke other reviews had mentioned, the bathroom was really large, it had a separate shower and bath tub. The bathroom reminded me of one at a Rtiz. The room was very clean and spacious. The service at the hotel was right on target. We loved that  the hotel had a full service Starbucks!  The location was perfect. We walked to Pike's Market and hit a lot of shopping in between, including the original Nordstroms.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone! If I had to pick one downfall it would be that there was not a "happenening bar" in the lobby.

I often base my judgement on places on how problems are solved.  The hotel had nice clean rooms.  But I had a error on my checkout bill.  The staff was friendly, efficient and it was quckly fixed.   Will gladly stay here again.

Great hotel mainly for its room.  Large size, nice touches everywhere and a price that is difficult to beat.

I was upgraded to a beautiful corner suite with wall to ceiling windows overlooking the City and water.  Shades were electronically controlled and there was dual air-conditioning.

If my home was only this nice!

This was our first time staying at the Grand Hyatt Seattle and were pleasantly surprised.  The reviews are right, the staff at the hotel were so professional and nice, it only feeds into my love affair with Seattle.  

PROS:  The electronic black out shades on my side of the bed were a dream come true...our view was ridiculous!  19th floor overlooking the water and downtown Seattle.  The bathroom had a glassed in shower as well as a huge tub.  The bed and sheets were clean and simple, no hideous argyle patterns.  They have a computer in the lobby where you can print out your boarding pass if you're flying which was convenient.  Valet was pretty pricey ($33/day) but has in-out privileges and they always had the car waiting when we came out.

We went to Ruth's Chris one night as that is the bf's favorite steak house (the butter, ugh) and were pleasantly surprised.  It was def nicer than the SF location, both in terms of staff and decor.  Perfect steaks, perfect cocktails, no complaints.  Starbucks in the lobby was uber convenient as well!!

CONS:  The room service menu is pretty sparse and stops at midnight...not convenient if you go out for drinks at the Roanoke all night and come home drunk and hungry!  The bathroom products are some in-house Hyatt product which are not great...I would bring your own products if you can.  

Would definitely stay here again!

I travel A LOT for business. Working for a Microsoft partner, the Seattle/Bellevue/Redmond area is a frequent port of call. I've almost always stayed at the Westin Bellevue. It is a very nice hotel. This time, given the event was at the Washington Convention Center, I chose to stay at the Grand Hyatt just a block away. From the lobby to the rooms the hotel is beautiful! The front desk was very cordial, quickly going over all the hotel amenities and even offering to send up complimentary coffee from the Starbucks on the first floor to my room.

Walking into my room I was borderline breathless! The view of the lake and then Pike's Place market in the foreground was like walking into a postcard. Words can't describe the view. If I didn't get the best room in the hotel I'd be surprised... or maybe they're all like this?

A cursory inspection of the room showed everything clean and in order. A very nice glass enclosed shower and a HUGE separate tub with waterfall.

The bellstaff was very polite and went above what I expect even for an otherwise nice hotel. That is usually your first personal contact with the hotel and it goes a long way to setting a good first impression! As a whole the staff understood good customer service and I wouldn't hesitate to come back!

right in the heart of seattle. awesome hotel. i went on vacation couple months ago and stayed at this hotel. totally worth the money. everything is around this hotel - public transportation, movie theatre, shopping malls, and Pike Place right down the hill. not to mention Ruth Chris and Starbucks in the hotel.

great hotel service. workers were really friendly. room was modern and comfortable. loved my king sized bed and all the pillows provided. bathroom is very spacious. flat screen tv. pricey, but definitely would recommend to friends/family and i would go back there myself.

As an event planner, I can say that my recent experience at the Grand Hyatt Seattle was extraordinary, from start to finish. What makes them much different than any other hotel in the Seattle area, you may ask? I have to say -- their staff -- from Tev, the outstanding senior catering manager, to Kyle, the AV pro, to Terry, the banquet captain for our event, to Ryan with food and beverage -- and every one of their staffers, they treated our event as though it was the only one that existed!

The food was good, the service outstanding, the event a success. So, if you're planning to have an event in the Seattle area, please check into the Grand Hyatt. I would recommend them!

Although I haven't spent the night there, we did visit friends in their Executive Suite on the upper floor. Niiiiice!

Great view, super comfy bed, nice decor, etc. They even brought us wine glasses when requested.

Only knock I could see was the old CRT TV - no LCD/Plasma?!?! Really? In the Executive Suite? Odd. Very odd.

The room was great. the hotel is beautiful but what makes this place really stand out is the staff. My wife and I got married here and we can't recommend this place enough to people. The staff here was so incredibly accommodating. Not only was every little problem/issue immediately addressed, it felt as if they had already anticipated our needs.

If you're doing an indoor wedding, you really can't beat the Grand Hyatt.

I have always loved the Hyatt! The ambiance, the theme, the service is the best! We had our wedding in the Princessa Ballroom and the experience was a delight from start to finish! We worked with Tev Marchettoni - event manager - and she was AMAZING! Our wedding was beautiful - the staff was on top of things, we got a gorgeous suite and our guests had a great time!

This hotel is modern and luxurious and doesn't cost a ridiculous amount of money! Definitely recommend this one!

This is a really, really nice hotel. We found all of the front desk and bell staff to be extremely helpful and friendly, looking up concerts that were in town and acquiring sold-out Seahawks tickets for us.

We enjoyed the deep tub and water pressure in the shower. The toiletries are nice lavender-citrus scented, but for sensitive skin I don't recommend using the body lotion - it made my eczema flare up.

The location is awesome - 10 minute walk to Pike Place, upscale shopping all around, plus an Old Navy a block away. 15 minutes down 2nd are great bars and restaurants and the Convention Center is a block away.

Parking is $26 a day and it's valet, but that is to be expected in a nice hotel.

The Seattle Grand Hyatt has nice rooms (with beautiful views), great service, a good location, and a nice vibe. I was hesitant about staying at the Hyatt (the Grand Hyatt in SF and San Diego are just ok), but I was pleasantly surprised.

I only wish they had an attached restaurant that was more creative than Ruth's Chris (even though one could do much worse than Ruth's Chris).

This Hyatt is an impressive and stunning hotel.  Modern, sleek, and swanky.  Kinda like me, right?  J/k.  Just as fashionable as a W Hotel (if not more so), but more upscale.  The lobby is gorgeous and the staff are very professional.  It doesn't have the cozy, intimate feeling of, say, the Hotel Vintage Park ( yelp.com/biz/4d83tqNcyK1… ), but when it's this nice, who gives a shit?  Funny how words like "charm" and "character" don't mean as much when you're surrounded in opulence.

The rooms, while not all that spacious, are impeccably appointed with marble, granite, and other high-end furnishings and finishing touches, down to the last detail.  Eight to ten of us comfortably fit inside for some cocktails and managed not to constantly bump into one another.  They even have an iPod docking station.  The bed was really comfortable and large.  I think my favorite feature was the remote-controlled window shades.  So cool!  

One glaring omission was the lack of a plasma or LCD television.  The big clunky box really looked out of place in the midst of all that glitz and glamour.  Oh and parking is (brace yourself) $31!  But oh well.  I guess no one can have it all.

Came here for a work conference, and was really loathing having to stay in a Hyatt.  To make it even worse, I flew up from SF on a day that floods had hit the entire Pacific Northwest region, and was subsequently trapped at SFO for about 6 hours.  Needless to say, I was grumpy, annoyed and irritated as soon as I got off that plane.

However, as soon as I walked into the doors of the Hyatt Grand, I was enamored by everything about the hotel and the stress of the day was quickly alleviated.  The standard guest rooms are tastefully decorated with luxurious amenities (deep tub!  separate shower!  marble floors at the entry!).  The staff was beyond fabulous, and I loved every minute being there.

The people who put on the conference hosted a cocktail party in one of the conference rooms, and the food exceeded my expectations for hotel fare.  In addition, Ruth's Chris Steakhouse is adjacent to the hotel and has a pretty good bar .  Ask for the blueberry lemon drop; it's to die for.

Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel for both professional and personal events.  Yes, I didn't pay but I recall that the rates were really reasonable, especially given the quality of the hotel.

Oh, and if the stellar reviews listed here aren't enough, when I walked in some guests were giddy with excitement as they had just stood next to Van Halen in the elevator; the front desk confirmed that the band was indeed staying there for their one night stint in Seattle.

Best hotel in Seattle.  My one issue with it is the lack of a bar/restaurant.  Having a chain steak house in the lobby doesn't really count.  A Grand Hyatt should rate having its own signature spot.  BUT  the rooms etc are all top notch - thus the rating.

This is our favorite hotel in downtown Seattle. From the moment we checked in til checkout, we received top service. Upon entering the room, a hint fresh fragrant hit our senses.  Our room was on the 25th floor facing west so had spectacular view of the sound and Space Needle.   Also, great to watch NBA games on the flat screen LG LCD TV. The bathroom is phenomenal.
The hotel has one of the best jacuzzi room, sauna and a steam room. The fitness room has good quality machines.

Was here late summer, stayed a few nights while visiting Seattle, my old home town.

Perfect location in the city, just doesn't get any better. You can walk or bus wherever you want to go from here. A few blocks to any number of great restaurants and shopping all around.

Great bathrooms as someone else noted, nice  gym, and good spa. Good service. Really enjoyed my stay.

(About that scathing one star review -- ?? Baffling, could it be poster was attracting her own negative energy? The comment she was so offended by 'didn't sound anything like a 'sugar daddy' or critical one to me.)

We stayed here 7-21-12 for my birthday.  The staff was excellent and our room was amazing!  We were on the 19th floor in the smoking room.  Being a smoker who likes the finer things in life this was the place to be.  The room had a filer system which makes the room smell clean and fresh.  As all other reviews the bathroom was amazing.  I wish I could have stayed longer to take a bath and enjoy the fitness center.  I will be back!!!!

Stunned silence; trancelike wandering from bed to window to bathroom back to window; immediately dialing my husband to brag about the gorgeous room I'm staying in. That sums up my first experience with the Grand Hyatt Seattle. It really doesn't get any better than this. The feel of the room is an upscale, downtown condo. HUGE bathroom with separate tub and large shower. The quietest hotel I've ever been in. Awesome towels & linens. Oh and the best part! The alarm clock included a plug in for your iPod/iPhone so you can wake up to your favorite song! It's got a great location within walking distance of pretty much everything downtown. I loved my stay here and can't wait to go back!

While not the cheapest in town, and pretty close to the most expensive, this is a great hotel. Everything was well laid out, new, and I like the architecture. Girlfriend like the bath. Location was good as well. Would definitely stay here again, although I would try to get a better price.

I love this hotel. I love their executive suites. I love their views. I used to love their free breakfast. I do not love their regency club, I do not love to see people eat breakfast in their bathrobes.

I do not recommend the rooms on the freeway side, they can be loud and since Ruths Chris moved in,  those rooms tend to smell meaty.

Seriously, not suitable for vegetarians.

I do like the corner suites as well, though the living area is a little potty.

Oh, skipeth the starbucks in the lobby and run over to Lladro for free wireless and great coffee.

*This is a review based on using the Grand Hyatt Hotel for a party, not as a hotel.

We had my company Winter Gala here and it was simply amazing. The lobby was packed with about 6 different mini bars and appitizers. It was open bar, so all we had to do was tip. (note: If you put the tip in the jar as they pour, you get a little more.)

Then we went into one ballroom for a sitdown dinner. The food was great: juicy roast beef, tender turkey, rolls, salad....I forgot what else I ate because of the open bar but I do remember it was fantastic. The other room had a live band, but I didn't go in there.

Lets just say that I had such a good time that I passed out during the cab ride home.

I would highly recommend having a work function here. It may be a little pricey, but if your company can afford it why go anywhere else?

Stayed here for three nights while on business.  I was upgraded to a one-bedroom corner suite which was so spacious and amazing.  The suite had two flat screen TV's and a large bathroom that contained both a nice bath tub and a separate shower stall.  The "living room" had a couch, desk and a flat screen TV along with a mini bar.  The long hallway down to the bedroom had two closets with lots of room.  The closets are cleverly decorated to appear as French doors - a very nice artistic touch.  The automatic Roman shades in both the living room and bedroom quarters operate with a touch of a switch.  I want to thank Kendall at the reception desk for such gracious hospitality and for the wonderful room assignment.   In addition, the Grand Hyatt is in a great location with very close proximity to great shopping and restaurants.  It will always be my #1 hotel choice in Seattle.

This hotel is what a luxury hotel is supposed to be.  The location is wonderful - you can easily walk to the Pike Place Market and most of downtown's best shopping and dining.  The service is courteous, patient, and kind, something I sadly don't always expect.  The lobby and rooms are wonderfully maintained and nicely appointed.  The LCD TV in my room was a nice touch, though the sunny summer weather meant I rarely turned it on.  The views from most rooms are spectacular no matter which direction you face.  Although I traveled on business, the room rates were quite reasonable for this level of luxury.

This was my first trip to Seattle and what better way to experience it than in the Emerald Suite offering a near panoramic view of the city. This was hands-down the best experience I've ever had at a hotel. The room was beautiful, the staff was friendly and attentive especially Mikhail who was so gracious when he had brought us the wrong bottle of wine. I could have spent the entire trip enjoying the view of the city from my cozy bed.

One of the best hotels I've stayed at.  Yeah, it's a little bit pricey, but well worth it.  Rooms are spacious, and the bathrooms are huge with a shower and a tub.  If you don't feel like walking, there's a Ruth's Chris steakhouse in the building.  But one of the best things about this hotel is the location.  Pike's Place market is about 10 minutes down the street, and there are plenty of shops and restaurants within walking distance.

I came to a conference. at this hotel and was VERY impressed with their event coordination staff. I didn't stay at the hotel (there were no rooms available at the time of my conference) however, spending 3 days in their lower ballrooms was enough proof for me. Here's why:

The food was excellent, and there were never any dry spells.
The staff had a perfect balance of being friendly and helpful, yet was really great at helping  to clear plates while not getting in the way of talks.
The room changes were seamless, and the audio visuals were great.
The bathrooms were clean and well maintained at all times.

If you're hosting a large scale event, for work or pleasure in downtown Seattle , I would highly recommend checking this place out.

Wonderful hotel, but some price anomalies. Had a $ 175 room that i got from priceline for $ 75. Great Fitness center that was free, but they charged for daily internet access. Made no sense. That said, the hotel was wonderful. Don;t miss the 1/2 price appetizers every day at early and late happy hour. A true deal. Would eb five star if the internet access was free.

I just left the Grand Hyatt yesterday morning and I couldn't have asked for a better hotel to stay at! We were within walking distance of everything- about a maximum of 8 blocks, and that's really good. If you think that's horrible, then you're probably a sloth. When I go to hotels, I look for damn near everything to be on point, from the elevators to the towels I get in the bathroom and I wasn't unsatisfied at all. The whole interior of the hotel was elegant. I walked in and right away, said wow. The front desk staff was very helpful with my requests. I had put on the reservation that I wanted a room with a view and he made sure that he asked specifically what I wanted to see. We even got military discount on everything, including room service, thank god. Our room was very nice. We had plenty of room to move, the king bed was huge and super comfortable, and the bathroom was THE best. We had a separate soaking tub and glassed in shower. And you can adjust the lighting in there, which was perfect for a romantic escape, which is what my boy and I were there for. It was very clean and they provide you with all the necessary amenities and more. We got robes, HUGE PLUS!! And the next morning, the maid cleaned up everything and gave us fresh towels. It was luxurious for a decent price and I will be back!

On our last elevator ride down to check out, one guy was gushing to this other guy about how him and his daughter had season tickets for the Red Sox games. I didn't pay too much attention since I'm not much of a baseball fan. After we reached the lobby and everyone in the elevator went their separate ways, my boyfriend said to me "Did you see that big guy in the elevator? That was Manny Ramirez." I had no clue who that was. Apparently he's a famous baseball player. By the time he told me that piece of info, Manny had already walked quite a ways the opposite direction so I couldn't really see what he looked like. I guess we picked the right hotel since a baseball star would stay there.

For our Seattle trip last year during Memorial Day Weekend, I had debated whether to book a hotel at the Grand Hyatt, or another hotel (I think it was the Sheraton, can't remember which one it was now). I'm glad I went with the Hyatt, as it was an amazing hotel. Upscale and immaculate inside, and right at the heart of downtown where everything is walking distance. Ruth Chris is connected to the hotel - which had the best French toast! They gave us a credit for breakfast when we checked in. Cheesecake Factory is just around the corner which satisfied our late night craving for some tiramisu cheesecake.

The staff was very accommodating. I booked it about three weeks in advance, requested a higher level, non-smoking room with a view of the space needle, and that's exactly what I got. They also have a computer available for hotel guests to print their boarding pass before they leave. We didn't get to try the spa. It closed a bit earlier than I expected.

I haven't stayed in the rooms here, so I lacked the proper opportunity to talk on my cell while nude and adjust myself.  I have, however, attended a conference held at the hotel.

Best.  Hotel.  Conference.  EVAR.  

The conference rooms themselves were tasteful and modern, and our main conference hall's lighting helped me to stay awake during the slower moments.  The staff were all friendly and professional, and incredibly attentive.

Most conference food balances somewhere between wedding food and cafeteria cuisine; the catering at the Hyatt Grand blew me away.  Every meal, from breakfast through evening apps, was made with superior ingredients and tasted heavenly.  They deftly accommodated halal, vegetarian, and meat-a-tarian.

Finally, the men's room KICKS ASS.  Normally I'm not thrilled to make a #2 in public, but the bathroom stalls in the men's room are all their own little room, with a closing and locking door, marble and wood accents, and individual ventilation.  Brilliant.  I'll drive across the bridge just to make a deuce at the Hyatt.

We arrived early and they let us into our room right away. Awesome. The hotel is in a perfect location. Many places are within walking distance (Pikes Place, City Center Pioneer Square) and if you rather take public transportation then you are in luck because it is right by the light link, monorail busses etc. The bathroom was massive and they had a nice tub. The hotel restaurant has a delicious homemade granola and yogurt for breakfast that I would recommend.

Loved the location! Right in the middle of everything. Great for walking everywhere. The room was nice and clean! Stayed on the 18th floor in one of the rooms with a king bed and had a little view of the sound but mostly the Roosevelt hotel.

Very modernized decor, with a mini bar. Make sure to order an extra mini fridge for your room if you plan on storing left-overs or personal drinks. You can't store anything in the mini bar fridge. And if you move anything inside of it, the sensors automatically bill your room. We didn't read the sign on the door and ended up moving things around. After noticing the sign, we called the front desk and they were very friendly and took the items off of our bill!

The bed was very comfy! Pillows were perfect. The electronic blackout shades were awesome and worked great. There's a button on the wall next to the bed to control them. There's an iPod docking station so bring your music! Bathroom is lovely! A large soaking tub with a big mirror behind it. Loved the shower too. Big with a door that opened both ways (kinda neat). Plenty of room for multiple people to get ready!

Sooo if your looking for good location, clean and comfy room, and friendly, helpful staff, this is the place for you!

This.  Hotel.  Is.  Fabulous!  My experience was only 4 star fabulous, but it was oh so close.

First off, I love that you can take the light rail from the airport, walk a few short blocks, and presto! you're at the Hyatt.  Saving $40 on a taxi ride is huge, and I am seriously in love with good public transit.  Secondly, the Hyatt is close to all kinds of restaurants and shops, plus it's a ten minute walk down to the market.  The location is excellent.  Thirdly, the hotel itself is just gorgeous.  The lobby is a bit small but everything is updated and well done.  The rooms are beautifully decorated and I'm not sure I've ever had such an amazing hotel bathroom.  Also, all the lighting in this hotel is cool.  Even in the hallways, there's cool blown glass light fixtures.  I really appreciate that kind of attention to detail, especially in such a large hotel.

So now I'll get down to the business of explaining my 4 start experience at this fabulous Hyatt.  Check-in went fine.  The guy wasn't overly helpful when we asked about any room upgrades (this bothered the hubby more than it did me) but he was accommodating enough.  The hubby and I were given a beautiful room on the 12th floor.  Our view was mostly of the office building right across from us (note to self: close those curtains before you undress!) but we had a small view of Puget Sound, Pike Place Market, and the snow-capped Olympic Mountain Range.  Much to our surprise, we also had a few naked lady sightings courtesy of a woman at the Hyatt Olive 8, also just across from us.  Some people never learn...  The only real downside to our room was that we were right by the elevators.  The 'ding' wasn't enough to wake me up at night, but there were several early risers calling the elevators in the morning, and that did become obnoxious because I tend to sleep lightly in the morning.  The room itself was very large and the bed was comfy, and I liked how the rooms had the little do not disturb light.  I've never stayed in a hotel that had one, and maybe I just don't get out enough, but I thought it was awesome.  For those newbies like me, there's a button that looks like a doorbell just inside the room door.  If you press that button it lights up red on the inside and the outside.  Housekeeping sees that little red light, and they know not to knock.  It's absolutely genius.  The automatic shade over the huge floor to ceiling window in our room was also very cool.  It took us forever to find the switch to control it (a label would have been nice) but once we found it I was in awe.  That's right, it doesn't take much to please me.  A do not disturb light and an electric window shade and I'm all set!

The bathroom at this Hyatt deserves its own paragraph.  I want this bathroom in my own home, with one small change.  I found it a bit strange that the toilet faced a mirrored wall above the bath tub.  I know I'm getting a little personal here, but it's odd for me to see myself on the throne.  That sort of thing really shouldn't be allowed at all if you ask me.  Anywho, onto the good - the bathroom is HUGE.  Huge vanity and mirror.  Huge glass shower.  Huge soaking tub with soap rack.  I swear this room was bigger than the bedroom I grew up in.  Nearly every surface in the bathroom was covered in gorgeous white marble, save the counter top which was granite.  I also loved that the lighting above the tub was on a dimmer switch, so you could set the mood to 'romance' or what have you while you soak.  We visited Seattle in May but it was quite chilly during the evenings and that soaking tub was a little piece of heaven.

I know, you're thinking, "wow, if this place is so great, why the 4 stars" but the small things nabbed a star for me this time.  Our proximity to the elevators was a bummer, the walls were thin in the bathroom and I could hear the neighbors chatting, and our view was fairly limited.  There is so much potential for a 5 star experience here, and I hope to stay here again and give the Hyatt a glowing update.

The Grandest of the Grand Hyatts.  The bathroom is as large as our guest room at home, with a cool glass shower that (gasp!) doesn't leak!  Spacious rooms and lobby, nice views, quiet(er), and a mini bar that won't bust your wallet.  It lacks its own bar (hit the steak house adjoining), but otherwise, perfect! Thank you Pritker family.

Big fan of the Grand Hyatt... the quality of service reminded me of when I arrived in Osaka... my bag was out of the hotel, even before I settled the taxi fare... the service was brisk, and efficient.  I had an early check in.. no problem..  the room was airy and with huge picture windows with views of the cityscape..  I loved the natural light and the 70's modernist vibe of the furniture...it had an "amber" quality... very retro... I dialed up room service and it was at my door in 30 minutes... the food was just as I had asked....the business center pumped out my meeting notes, quickly.. my card.. a swipe..  done..  I was out of there... directions around town from the staff got me to where I needed to be...  and hell, I walked and enjoyed the sunshine cascading down...tumbling off the buildings...the bed slept good.. the shower was hot..and strong... the elevators were quick.. no strange scent when you step out into the hall.  I'lll give it a hi-hoo...and a yeah!   and will be back.

This is a tough review in that last month I stayed at the W and had an awesome time. The W was sold out this wkd due to the RnR Marathon, so I managed to snag a great rate at the Hyatt.

But the minute I registered, I knew I'd have a great weekend here. The staff and concierge was extremely helpful and gave plenty of recommendations and maps. Since I took a flight at dark o'clock and got to Seattle at 8am, they even let me check in that morning, so I had a room when I got in.

I had a single room on the 18th floor. The bed is a lil bit firmer than the heavenly bed, but where they get that extra star is for their bathroom, immaculate! A nice spa tub and I'm a huge fan of their glass shower! And the room is very spacious, lots of shelf/closet space and you gotta love the dimmer for their curtains!

Also, unless you're doin business in the financial district, this location is a bit more central: close to Pacific Place, Paramount Theater, straight shot down Pine to get to the Market, and much closer to Capital Hill with buses on 6th/Pike.

The hotel is a lot bigger, and with that more guests are here for weddings, conventions, etc. Not really a bar here aside from the one at Ruth Chris, but still super-close to Von's, Fox Sports Grill, and Taphouse grill, all a block away.

The view was great and the amenities/service was excellent. Complimentary toiletries, including my gf's favorite: Aquafresh toothpaste, lol. Plus, they even have a complimentary umbrella to use; then again, Seattleites rarely use umbrellas.

While I love the Heavenly Bed and W bar, overall I'd have to give the nod to the Grand Hyatt for their overall service, hotel room, and the value of staying at a 5-star hotel in a great location.

Stayed here 7 nights...
The view was fantastic (we were on 26th floor).  We had 2 bathrooms, king bed, living room area with a bar (fridge, sink, coffeemaker, lots of counter space) Lots of closet space and a vanity.  Shower and tub are INTENSE.  The shower had 2 separately operating showerheads, and the bathtub is huge! I'm a slow bath taker; I like to read, soak, play in the bubbles, relax.  I couldn't handle but 20 minutes in this thing; I think I underestimated it! TIP: Be sure to stop by the lovelies at Lush at Westlake Plaza and pick up a bubble bar and a bath bomb for a truly extravagant bath experience.
Our room was very clean and fresh.  Employees were kind and helpful.  I was especially impressed by the "do not disturb" switch at the door.  You just turn a little light on that tells staff not to come by, clean the room, etc. I slept on a rollaway cot right next to the sweeping view.  The cot was cozy and comfortable.  There are small windows that will open, and you can have the air circulate in your room; I liked this.
Very convenient location; close to the bus, the light rail, walking distance to walgreens, whole foods, sushi train restaurant in the SAME BUILDING, walking distance to , well, everything!.  
Skip the starbucks and go around the corner to Cafe Ladro.  You'll hardly wait in line, and the brew's better.

The BEST hotel in Seattle!  I make frequent business trips to the area and have stayed at other places (Westin, Hilton) and nothing compares to the amenities and service that the Grand Hyatt provides!

My longest stay here was for 2 weeks and I felt just as comfortable during that time as I would if I were at home...  
Rooms are spacious, bathrooms are luxurious, views are great, and the gym actually is a nice place to work out!
Their attention to details and added touches (umbrella in the closet for rainy days, blackout curtains) really make this a top notch hotel and well worth the $$$.

I love staying here!  They have separate soaking tubs and glass enclosed showers and the rooms usually have great views of the city.  Occasionally when I'm stressed, i'll book a room and take a bottle of wine, a good book and soak in the tub and have a great time relaxing.  There is no spa, so hopefully the new Olive 8 hotel's spa will be good.  Prices can be decently cheap if you get them at a good time.  The hotel uses an electronic key that is very cool as well.  Modern, chic design and pretty spacious rooms.  Parking is normal at about $49/night.

Ah...the Grand Hyatt...I remember it well!  Was in this lovely hotel in January 2005 (it was butt ugly weather and cold) but my room made ALL the difference.

Insider tip from people in the industry:  when you check in, be polite, nice and mention if you've never been there before -- only if that is true -- OR mention how "the other hotel" you stayed at didn't really knock off your socks!  THEN...ask very kindly if there might be a possibility of an UPGRADE on your room -- not gratis, but for a modest charge -- and...presto!  You might get a fabulous room -- I did!

TOP floor in a corner suite -- absolutely gorgeous views -- and comfy bed, HUGE bath and ample closet space.  Staff at this hotel were wonderful...and everything you need (really -- food, movies, shopping) all a short walk from the hotel.

But hey, it's Seattle -- so don't forget your jacket and umbrella!

Hey - business travelers - if you travel to/through Seattle, this Hyatt Property has few (if any) equals. I only wish that I had selected this property before such others as Sheraton or Hilton. In fact, I had also stayed at W Seattle and Four Seasons Olympic Hotel - prior.

I travel often for business and pleasure - at least 8 trips per year into the Northwest (Seattle and Portland) or to the East Coast (NYC) and/or to Europe.

Before I further compliment the Grand Hyatt property, staff and amenities, let me thank W Seattle and Four Seasons Olympic for equally enjoyable stays. These properties, too, offer any traveler the best of Seattle hospitality. Obviously, depending upon needs, age, agendas - any property can offer just what you want/need.  Grand Hyatt has done just that for me: single, male, business traveler.

Similar to other reviews, I will support the following: 1) easy driving trim via a rental car from SEATAC airport; 2) convenient car drop off (if necessary) at an adjacent HERTZ facility (1 block from the hotel); 3) convenience to NORDSTROM and all other major retail stores within several blocks; 4) convenient walk to THE BROOKLYN restaurant for GREAT oysters and great dining!!; 5) very courteous and attentive doormen, bellmen, front desk staff, concierge, and in-house RUTH CHRIS dining and STARBUCKS (but, I am NOT a Starbucks fan....sorry...nonetheless, convenient.

PLUS: Try to book a high-floor room that has a view of the Puget Sound (a must). Or try to book a corner room - the vistas are amazing.  Rooms are LARGE, bathrooms (even larger) - with glass showers and separate bathtubs and a separate toilet room within some suite bathrooms.

If you are a gym-goer, this property has a very large 4th floor workout facility with flatscreens to accompany your exercise hour. Then, immediately adjacent is a large, tiled jacuzzi, sauna and steamroom. What more could you ask for? Towels, etc., YES. Quiet time for you? Yes....I have used this facility often and usually I am not distracted by youngers.

Check out is simple: on screen TV and or sign-and-go. Call down for your car and it is there within minutes (very rare these days).

Apart from some, if any, I have not been disappointed with my various stays.....try to book online as much in advance and get good discounts off of rack rates and/or upgrades.

Bravo Grand Hyatt.

Valet needs to get it together. First of all I was digging through my stuff to find my ticket so I had my 1 year old daughter stand in the corner away from the road. Anyone that has ever had a 1 year old know they can take off into the road if given the chance. Then the valet guy tells us to move away from where we were. There was no other safe place for us to stand. After that he charged me for 4 hours of parking when Ruth Chris had validated it for 3 hours and I had been there for 3 hours and 25 minutes. I should have only had to pay for 1 hour but it's their "rule" and Ruth Chris could careless about this. Then the guy tells me twice to not go behind his podium. We never went behind his podium in the first place. He seemed to be under a lot of pressure... but there was only one person in line before us. Because of his attitude and talking to my daughter like this, I will never go back there again. Too many other restaurants and hotels to choose from in Seattle.

Stayed at the Grand Hyatt on our honeymoon and came away very satisfied.  Since the staff was told about our special stay, they gave us a 21st floor room on the side of the hotel which actually has a view.  This was a great surprise and something we weren't expecting.

The location of this hotel is absolutely perfect if you are into shopping, dining and wandering the streets of Seattle.  It's within a block of Nordstrom and the other fabulous shopping in downtown, about 10 blocks from the waterfront and Pike's Market, and just 2 blocks from the Monorail.

My only complaint, which covers almost any high-end hotel are the lack of simple conveniences.  I've never been a huge fan of concierge or room service and don't mind walking down the hall to get a pop from a machine.  The $5 pops in the mini-fridge at 1AM are your only option...

I like the Grand Hyatt Seattle.

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of a stay at one of Seattle's finest hotels. It has a great many positives, but key among them are it's central location and terrific staff. The management does a phenomenal job at training every member of staff in a way which encourages them to deliver outstanding service on every occasion.

The bell staff were very attentive and took great care of my car. They were always at my car door whenever I pulled in and helped with my many bags. The front desk staff were efficient and courteous.

There is one thing which bugs me a great deal about this hotel. Despite the Grand Hyatt and Olive 8 Hyatt being only 1 block apart, and despite them being managed by the same people, guests at the Grand Hyatt are not permitted to use the pool at Olive 8. I could understand this if the Grand Hyatt had a pool of its own, but it does not. Considering that the Grand Hyatt is usually much more money than the Olive 8, I don't understand why they can not permit guests to use the pool at their neighboring location. For this reason, I may switch my stays to the Olive 8 despite it having less luxurious bedding and rooms in general.

I forgot what a SPECTACULAR property this is.......and what excellent service everyone provides. This is truly an excellent property!!

It began when I valet parked the car, the guy were all friendly and helpful. Next I moved to the registration desk and was helped by Katie. She was AWESOME, friendly, efficient and offered up some good local spots for dinner. Just what you want when you check in.

Next, I headed up to the Regency Club to get some water and I met Alex. Great young kid who went out of his way to make me feel comfortable and help with directions and traffic to the airport.

I had a note from Mark Stiebeling, the GM, and I called him to let him know how great the staff was and to thank him for the room I am in. He was friendly and I enjoyed our chat.

I then headed to the 4th floor gym. It is excellent, clean/modern look, enough space with cardio, weight machines, and free weights. I always like a bench press, but that was the only thing missing.

I also used Louise the concierge to book a reservation for dinner and she was very friendly and efficient. Excellent service!!

Only thing that was below expectation was the maid service on Friday....I left early in the morning and when I returned at 3 pm the room was just as I left it....no maid service. I called down and they came in and emptied the trash and delivered fresh towels.

The property was surprisingly busy on the weekend....the club level for breakfast had a busy crowd for breakfast and the gym was crowded every morning (someone said it was people on the cruises).

Overall an exceptional experience and a wonderful place to stay. The staff is exceptional and the location is awesome -- right next to the shopping and a 15 minute walk to the fish market. In fact, I don't even think you need a car if you are staying downtown -- everything is a short walk or cab away.

$169.15 a night, valet is $33 + 3.14 + 3.30 = $39.44 a night

I got put up here when I came to Seattle to interview. I was pretty blown away by the awesome that was my corner room. My minimal interactions with the staff were excellent and the Ruth Chris on site made for a very tasty breakfast before an interview.

If I was coming to visit and had the cash to spend on a fancy place I wouldn't be disappointed to stay here again.

We stayed here for 3 nights for Christmas. Used the Hyatt points, but looking at the price listed, it is very reasonable, especially for such a great location and amenities.

Customer Service:
I have been a member of Hyatt for years, and I must say, I have never been as impressed by the customer service as at the Grand Hyatt Seattle. Normally, at more corporate hotel like this, you receive the more courteous type of customer service, more like "I'm doing this because I have to, not because I want to". But here, everyone is very friendly and seems generally happy to help. We were also greeted by our names, which hardly ever happens anymore in this type of hotel. In fact, after our stay, the Mr actually called the hotel to find out where they got their salmon served at the Grand Club was from and they actually contacted him back w/ the information. It was a simple gesture, but I have contacted other hotel to find information on something they served during our previous stay, and was ignored even though they're known for their excellent customer service.

We had a gorgeous view of the water from our room. The room itself is not too big, but not too small; very comfortable size for a hotel room. The bathroom however is not the typical Hyatt bathroom. It reminds me more of the Vegas hotels bathroom (think Bellagio, Wynn, etc). Loved the soak tub, and my request for bath salt was accommodated without any problems, although I am still confused as to why hotels w/ tubs don't provide bath salt/soap for this purpose without having to request it. You can't exactly use regular shower gel to take a bath.
The bed is typical Hyatt bed, comfortable enough. However, the pillows are so flat we had to fluff them up by sleeping on two (three for me). I don't understand why hotels spend so much money on every other aspect of their hotels, except for the pillows. You spend most of your time on top of them, comfort is necessity!

Location: you know what that say, location location location. Walking distance to pretty much everything. Granted Seattle is not that big and easily accessible, but this location is located in a perfect spot for tourists. You are literarily smacked in the middle of the shopping area when you walk out of the hotel, and just a short few blocks walk to Pike Place. It's only 1 or 2 block walk to the bus stop so hopping in and out of busses is not a problem at all.

Fitness Center:
I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the fitness center. Plenty of machines and selections.
Minor incident which really wasn't the hotel's fault. Perhaps they should put up a big giant sign before the door to the hot tub area instead of the corner so everyone could see that proper attires are required to enter the area. Sure, it should be common knowledge that this area is coed, but apparently it is not common knowledge at all. We had the unpleasant incident w/ three women who let's just say not dressed for a coed area. It was uncomfortable for all, but especially for the Mr whose hot tubbing time was cut short w/ this incident.

Thanks to my Platinum status, we get free wifi w/ our stay. It's the fastest just yet, and since it's free, nothing to complain.

Grand Club:
Okay, I've heard a lot of complaints about their Grand Club from another travel forum, so I wasn't expecting a lot. Sockeye salmon they served in the morning is the Mr's favorite (thus the calling the hotel for info on it). They don't serve hot food for breakfast, but honestly, I quite enjoy grabbing something quick here and having breakfast/lunch/brunch elsewhere later on. A lot of time, the breakfast served at the hotel isn't exactly the best quality anyway.
The afternoon snack consists of hot appetizers, veggies and dips, and drinks. Not a lot of selections, but good enough for snacking purposes. Alcohol is extra, which we weren't aware of *not that it'd stop us from ordering, but it'd be nice if there's a sign to indicate that* (the last day, the magic sign was there; perhaps someone complained?).
I must disclose that we had free access to the Grand Club because of my status. Not sure if I'd pay extra for it honestly. The view from the club was beautiful and the room was comfortable to hang out in, however, the food selection isn't worth how much you'd have to pay for. But since it's free for us, I can't complain much.

In conclusion, we had a great stay, and we will definitely consider the Grand Hyatt next time we're in Seattle.

This is one of my favorite Hyatt properties. First off, as a Diamond member, I am upgraded every time I stay to a full suite. Not just a larger king room or club floor room like many of the Hyatt's do. The rooms are very spacious, comfortable, and clean. The views are also amazing. I should also mention the hotel has a really nice jacuzzi in the fitness center.

What an amazing hotel!!!


- Great location! Central to the best shopping and restaurants in downtown. Short walk to Pike's Market and the monorail to the Needle. It's also about 1 block from the Westlake station that will get you to/from the Sea-Tac airport on the train
- Very clean
- Modern and upgraded room furniture and bathroom fixtures (including  blackout curtains)
- QUIET (although I would ask for a high level room - closer to the street means more noise)
- Very friendly staff
- Ruth's Chris and a Starbucks in the ground floor of the hotel


- A bit pricey but no more than other nice hotels in downtown
- No free wi-fi (this is my pet peeve for any hotel. This should always be included with the room, especially at these prices)

I will definitely be back on my next trip. It was that great!

Polite and Friendly Staff!!

This is what I needed after my nightmare flight to Seattle.  I just wanted someone to be nice to me.

And Alice was.  She checked me in, she noted she was giving me a room with an excellent view of the water and was so nice, I wanted to shed a tear I was so grateful.  

The rooms are not large by any means, but they're comfortable.  The bathrooms are to die for.  I pried myself out of bed early and hungover to sit in the deep tub and soak.  

A+++  I would go back again.  And again.

Not as "Grand" as expected. The staff was so mellow - perhaps a northwestern thing. We tried to joke around with the front desk people when we arrived but got no response. It continued on like that at each visit. The free apples were a nice touch so that was a good reason to visit the FD.

We were there for a convention. There was no lobby bar to convene at so that blew. The banquet food was bland and boring.

The rooms are amazing though - comfy beds and pillows and  spacious bathrooms like you'd find at the Venetian in Vegas.

Well, Hyatt....it's time to do a little fixing up around the place.
Our lampshade was all torn and cracked.
The paint was chipping off the walls.
The mattress was too soft.
And the club lounge breakfast?  Blah..but they will bring you an egg if you ask.  
Good location, but next visit to Seattle, we'll stay somewhere else.

Beautiful, just beautiful.  Great water views.  Rooms comfortable & stylish, updated.  Bathroom with shower, seperate soak tub.  Elevators fast & plentiful.  Self parking in same building.  Fitness room very nice, big & lots of new equipment, weight machines & cardio.  Nice tunes playing, with headphones available for individual TVs on the cardio machines, if you don't care for music.  Spa area (sauna, steam room & hot tub) beautiful, clean, relaxing.  Hot tub was hot, jets were powerful.  Very seldom do you find such a great spa.  Our last great spa experience was on another continent.  Hyatt Club was enjoyable, nice city views.  Coffee, teas, snacks were excellent & lots of variety.

All staff we interacted with were friendly, helpful & professional.  
Very well trained.

Love this hotel!!!

This Hyatt has a fantastic central downtown location near just about anywhere you want to go.  It has its own Starbucks, it's right down the street from the Cheesecake factory, across the street from a movie theater and a Barnes n Noble bookseller and a few blocks away from the Paramount theater.  

The rooms are beautifully decorated with modern touches.  The wheelchair accessible rooms have wide walkways and large well designed bathrooms with roll in showers which I really appreciate.  My grandmother passed away a few months ago, but when she was alive this was her favorite hotel in the Seattle area.  She really appreciated the wheelchair accessible rooms and the friendliness of the staff, especially in the concierge lounge.

One negative about this hotel is that the front driveway frequently becomes congested with vehicles and it can be difficult to drop off/load passengers from the front door.

My partner and I just spent 3 nights in an Emerald Suite at the Seattle Grand Hyatt. It was worth every penny. What an unforgettable experience! We were on the 29th floor, and had incredible views of both the Space Needle AND Elliott Bay. The views were breathtaking. The room itself was elegantly furnished - and I loved that the bathroom had both a soaking tub and a separate shower. Very nice!

We had minimal contact with the staff here - but were greeted warmly by the front desk clerk (Jocelyn) upon arrival. On our last night, we splurged for room service. Expecting the portions to be tiny, we ordered SEVERAL items from the menu. Big mistake. The portions were huge, and ended up with more food than we could eat. Everything was delicious. I especially recommend the Dungeness Crab Cakes, and the Brownie Trio dessert.

The location is great - we were able to walk to Pioneer Square and Pike Place Market rather easily.. (though be warned, it's a brutal uphill climb back for midwest "flat-landers" like us!) The parking is outrageously expensive - my only gripe. $28 a day (self-parking) really adds up when you spend 3 nights! Ouch!

Overall, I was so pleased with the high level of quality from this hotel. It's great when you actually 'get what you pay for'!

The hotel room is lovely here!  I'm here for a conference and it is a great space except for one important piece - no accessible wifi in the conference room.  Well, actually our nonprofit was going to be charged a lot of money for wifi and my internet card was blocked.  Not good in my opinion.  If I am going to book a conference it will be some place with affordable wireless for my attendees.

For such a beautiful hotel you would think they would have nicer towels too... I love great towels when I get out of a shower.

What is not to love?  

1.  The location is great .  Right smack in the middle of downtown Seattle, so it's a short distance to shopping, restaurants, Pioneer Square, Belltown, and Pike Place.
2.  The rooms are amazing.  We requested a room on a lower floor, so we did not get any views, but I did not care.  Everything about the room was top-notch from the furniture, to the electronics, to the most comfortable bed.  Everything was in good working order and was clean. The blackout blinds were electronically-controlled, so this provided a source of amusement for simple-minded people like us.

3.  The bathroom is huge.  You-can-throw-a-party-in-it huge.  It has a separate shower stall and a huge soaker tub. The shower stall is so big, one can fit 4 people in it very comfortably (I don't know why one would, but one certainly could).  

4.  The staff members were friendly, efficient, and accommodating.   It is worthy to note that our status as cheapskate Priceline customers did not seem to matter to them because we felt we were treated just as well as all the other guests.

My only gripe is that the wifi is not free, but there is a Starbucks and an NYC deli on the ground floor, both offering free wifi, so not a big deal.  Also, parking is a bit much at $30 for self park at the Pike and 7th Garage, but it is easily accessible from the hotel.  

A 4*-rated hotel  that is truly a 4*.   No real complaints here, so definitely a 5* rating from me.

Rooms are nice, but a bit dated. As previously mentioned, electronic shades are nice & beds are comfortable. Front desk is friendly and helpful. Location is great for tourism.

However...minus two stars because: 1) concierge that gave us incorrect information on multiple occasions. 2) Room service food was not that good. First time hubby was disappointed with a burger from room service 3) Parking costs $33 + $6 in taxes per night 4) room is dated - closet doors were tricky to close, tables were dinged up, TV's were 15in CRT's 5) Regency club food is not as good as other clubs and little kids were constantly playing games on the shared computers 6) View of skyscraper construction in downtown Seattle was not nice

A perfect location, spacious room, and a beautiful view of the Puget sound were welcome respite during my weekend visit to Seattle to run the Rock n Roll Half Marathon.  I was surprised when I checked in, as my usual experience with "group rate" rooms when I don't have status with a hotel has not been good, to see that I had such a great corner room with a view.

The king size bed was perfectly comfortable, and the room itself was huge.  The bathroom, as others have commented, is immense, with a large double sink, glassed in stand-up shower, and separate soaking tub.  As I was traveling alone, I probably could have done without the large wall of mirror directly opposite the shower (and I definitely could have done without that same wall of mirror being opposite the toilet!)

The "foyer" area of the room with the floor to ceiling mirror and marble shelf/stand for keys, etc is genius.  And the room is actually big enough that it doesn't seem out of place.

The Grand Hyatt is within easy walking distance to Pike Place Market, Pioneer Square, the Space Needle, etc. - I didn't have a car and definitely didn't feel like I would have needed one for a nice weekend in the city.  Also within walking distance of some great restaurants and  lounges - I can't comment on those since I was just there to run - and running a half marathon with a hangover wasn't going to happen!

My only quibble is that the hotel is far from sound-proof.  You can hear the comings and goings of every guest in surrounding rooms.  While I was lucky, and this wasn't a factor late into the night, there also was not a convention in town - given the proximity of the hotel to the convention center, that could easily change if there was one there.

All in all a great experience - I'd stay here again.

If you have the money (or the Priceline negotiation expertise), this is THE place to stay in downtown Seattle. It has all the luxury you would expect, and their customer service is top notch.

Why 4 stars and not 5? Because we did have issues, which were eventually resolved by the staff. The heat was out in our room for a day or so... it was freezing, and after a day of complaining, they moved us to their penthouse suite with views of downtown, Pike Place, the Sound, and the Space Needle. Sweet!

I would definitely stay at the Grand Hyatt Seattle again if I returned (and that's a lot coming from this Marriott Platinum Rewards girl). The staff was amazing; typically 3 people went to open the car door when we pulled up, and the hotel is very plush. The location is pretty difficult to beat; in the middle of shopping, near the fish market, and surrounded by an eclectic mix of restaurants that includes your standard chain options as well as unique establishments to the area.

Great hotel in a great location!  Let me tell you why this hotel is awesome.  

-Had a beautiful view in our room on the 21st floor overlooking downtown (Pine St.) with a straight shot to the water!
-Bathroom was very nice and spacious.  There was a separate tub and shower.  I could probably have done a cartwheel from the toilet to the tub, no problem!
-Bed was King size. Pillows were awesome.  Bed was just so comfy!
-Quiet.  Could not hear anyone walking down the hallway, closing their doors, or anything.  Very different than my experience at the Edgewater (see my review for more info).
-Folks working here were very nice, helpful, courteous.  
-It was FREE!  Used my points, sweeeeeeeeeeet.

This place is really nice, the valet service was spot on.  Checking-in was easy, the bell-hop was on the ball.  My room was big for its location, the bathroom was big as well.  Everything in the room was standard Hyatt which means it was modern and classy at the same time.

My complaint is that even though I am frequent Hyatt guest they did not provide me with a room with a decent view, sure it was on one of the higher floors but no view, totally bummer.

Even with everything this is a classy Hyatt, the Ruth's Chris Steakhouse is a plus.  Location is great being walking distance of a whole bunch of awesome.

Nice furnishings, but for the price there was nothing else exceptional. Service at the front desk was ok, but without an attitude of helpfulness. And at $300/room, you would think it would include WiFi. It doesn't, you have to pay extra.
And, the concierge could at least smile when she states emphatically that she can't help us.

Like fellow yelpers have said, it's a great place, comfortable and modern rooms, great bathrooms and we were graciously upgraded simply by asking.

My only qualm is that they don't offer free wifi.

This is 2011 and it's pretty much expected, and ridiculous that they charge for it.  I realize it's common for most higher end hotels to charge for it, but its ridiculous.  Hopefully the day of nickel and diming you for things like that will come to an end before long.

After traveling quite a bit this past year, this was definitely the coolest hotel I've been too. It was a little small, with a huge bathroom (with separated shower and large tub) and walk in closet to make up for it. Being in Seattle the room came with a complimentary umbrella which we used on our stay. The black out drapes were AWESOME! I really want to get these installed at home! The other super awesome thing was the room had a do not disturb light, not a sign but a touch pad button that you press on the inside of the entrance! How cool. Being downtown, this hotel is only a few blocks away from everything and if you're trying to get to/from the airport I recommend A-ABC Transportation $30 flat rate town car. The hotel has a steakhouse (we didn't try), a sushi bar which was cool, its really about the atmosphere, the food was mediocre but I'm half Japanese so I have high expectations. The cafe/ stop shop was something we visited every day of our stay, they had drinks, chocolate/candy, ice cream, a cafeteria style salad/app bar, and a sandwich counter. There was a starbucks, coincidently while in Seattle we never ordered starbucks... Steve was our front desk agent that checked us in, he was nice and informative. He even sent us a personal note and amenity for celebrating our dating anniversary. We did not run in to any problems while staying at the Grand Hyatt in Seattle. I'm curious to see how Olive 8 compares though, it seems trendy and simple.

So I made my reservation with this hotel 2 months prior to our stay and the day we got there they said we just made a reservation for 1 king bed when I made the reservation for 2 queen beds. We finally got that sorted out after adding $15 more a night to our room charge. The room is nice I just think they need more drawer space. The hotel is good, not the ritz but I guess you get what you pay for. It was good though for us who just wanted to sleep in the room and leave in th morning. Nice shower though I do admit !

We had an alright view (top of a roof) but other than that...I cannot complain!

1. Location - sooo walkable.
2. Gym - amazing facility and new, clean equipment.
3. Room - nicely appointed, amazing shades, comfy bed and great bathroom.
4. Parking garage - sure paying for parking is never fun, but this parking garage was easy to navigate, connected to the hotel (BONUS!) and the quietest I have experienced.
5. Convenience - now, we did not partake (since we were only staying one night) but awesome that Ruth's Chris, Starbucks and Blue C Sushi are all accessible from the lobby.

Definitely a keeper.

Hands down, my favorite hotel to stay at in downtown Seattle. One of the newer properties on the market, it features beautifully appointed rooms and tastefully decorated common areas. It is also conveniently located to the downtown retail core, the convention center, and the rest of downtown in general.

The rooms feature really awesome views if you are on the upper floors or are facing the west. East facing rooms get a view of Capitol Hill (which isn't bad) and upper east facing rooms can get a glimpse of downtown Bellevue in the distance.

Hotel features really nice meeting space and a great ballroom for a banquet. Not as much breakout space as I would have hoped given the size of the ballroom, but still nothing to really complain about.

Features the Ruth's Chris steakhouse on the first level and it is really convenient to other downtown restaurants such as the Cheesecake Factory, Fox Sports Grill, Taphouse, and all the restaurants at Pacific Place.

Really good hotel and worth the money in my book.

The room: We ended up with the corner suite which was unexpected. There was a minihall way that separated the bedroom and sitting area. Two phones, one in each area, two TVs, and the best thing of all: The bathroom. The bathroom was huge with separate shower and bathtub. The bathtub is huge and you really can relax in it. The bathroom also included a free toothpaste which was absolutely disgusting. If you're used to sweet toothpaste, avoid the freebie one.

The lobby: Very nicely decorated, lots of elevators, and more importantly, there's a Starbucks that has free wifi. Why pay for wifi when you can just go down to Starbucks and get it for free?

Service: The people at the front desk were mostly friendly and professional except for the one person when we were checking in. I didn't find her friendly at all. Granted we checked in at 11 at night, but still.

Location: Very very very good location. It's close to the bus terminal, so if you need to go to places that are outside of downtown Seattle, the terminal is just a block away. It's also walking distance from all the shopping and for 15-20 mins, you can walk down to Pike Place Market.

Price: We paid at about $116/night + tax via Priceline which is an awesome deal considering the hotel we got.

Overall, I had a great experience and I definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to stay at a nice hotel in Seattle.

Loved this hotel and I'm glad that I stayed here for my first visit to Seattle! It's in a really good location - we walked almost everywhere from here - Pike Place Market, SAM, Japonessa (right across from SAM), Westlake Center, etc.

Our room was very spacious and comfortable. The bathroom was also spacious and had a shower and a separate tub! I didn't use the tub, but my sister enjoyed soaking every night in there after our long days of walking around exploring Seattle!

We were supposed to use the exercise room, but never got around to it - we did check it out though, and it was very nicely equipped! The business center, on the other hand was kind of a disappointment. There was only 2 computers and there's a charge to use the computer and print out anything you may need! That's crazy. There was free boarding ticket printing, but still...that kinda sucked. It seems like the higher you go on the hotel ladder, you get nickle and dimed.

Employees here were very friendly and always acknowledged us whenever we cam into contact. We did have late night happy hour at the Ruth's Chris Steakhouse that is adjoined and service was very good.

I'd stay here again...especially if we got another great deal online!!

Like many others have said, this hotel is in the perfect location! Only a couple blocks from the light rail (from Airpot for only a few dollars), couple blocks from the monorail which takes you to the Space Needle center, and about 7 blocks to Pike's market.... Oh and of course lots of high-end shopping right on the street.

Hotel is very very nice. Only complaint I have is water pressure. Sink and shower water pressure is pretty weak. Keep in mind, I haven't been in a hotel in a long while so maybe most/all hotels have water pressure issues?

All-in-all, great hotel and would probably stay here again but I doubt we'll be back to Seattle... anytime soon at least. :P

Perfect if you are attending conferences or tradeshows at the Washington State Convention Center.  It's right across the street!!

Conveniently located in downtown, it's just 5-10 minutes away from Pike Place and right next to all the shopping.  Niketown, H&M, Levi's, Nordstrom are all within a 1-2 block radius.  Dining-wise, all the big chain restaurants are nearby, like Cheesecake and Daily Grill but I like to support local restaurants and they are more of a walk since many are located past Pike and Pine.

As for the rooms itself, the bed was very nice, and the room extremely spacious.  The bathroom was a treat too with a seperate tub & shower.  $10 a day for wi-fi which is reasonable but I wish Hyatt can start offering free wi-fi soon since many are starting to do so.

One thing that did annoy me was when I forgot to turn the privacy light off and called to requested housekeeping to have my room refreshed, they told me that housekeeping already left at 6pm.  That's the first time I've ever heard of such thing.  I've had my rooms refreshed at the Westin, Doubletree, and other big hotels past 6pm.  Maybe that's the policy but that was annoying so I just requested fresh towels.

24 hour fitness center is a great plus.  Water, towels, everything is provided.  All you need is gym apparel!

Great place to stay since the amenities are good and the location is top notch.

I got to stay at the Grand Hyatt on the company dime for a conference I was working at about a month ago.  I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the amenities were.  The bathroom to the king sized suites are ridiculously nice, and I fully appreciate any hotel that has shower robes.

We had the Grand Hyatt cater our Breakfasts and Lunches and the food was always really good.  I ordered room service a couple times too, and I can say it was better than a lot hotel room service that I've had before.

The Internet connection here can be a little funky, it costs $10 bucks a day, and your room Internet you buy will not work for the conference room areas.  

The location seems to be in a pretty good spot too, lots of places within walking distance.  Gordon Biersch is right across the street.

This place rocks!  Great location, fabulous rooms, awesome bathroom, huge closets, comfy beds, super nice staff, stacked fitness center complete with sauna and steam rooms (I just wish you had medicine balls but o/w, solid!).

Minus 1 star for  the following, but only if you care about these things:

1) Regency Club room food being unusually gross (def worse than other R Clubs) and for closing early.

2) There's no full length mirror in room.  Really?!  Is this a joke?

One huge tip to pass along to you:

This hotel has a big conference center, so of course, there will be conferences held here.  Call ahead to ensure there will not be a convention during your stay, b/c there was one while I was there and it was really annoying!  No fault of anyone's, but the fact that there were hundreds of people all on the SAME SCHEDULE meant that the elevators were slow and clogged and stopped on every friggin' floor.  In the future, I would stay here again in a heartbeat, but NOT if there's a convention going on at the same time.

I miss this hotel already.

The location was superb, we walked everywhere while in town for the weekend.  There are loads of great restaurants near the hotel, and it's a quick walk from the hotel down to Pike Place Market.  Additionally, it's only about a block to the light rail link between downtown and the airport.  Also close enough to walk to belltown or even the Space Needle.

The interior of the hotel was really great.  The design fit perfectly with the area, and was not overkill as some hotels can be.  It was a sense of warm, modern decor with hints here and there to remind you of your location.  The room (view king room - 23rd floor) itself was immaculate, extremely clean, smelled great, and had a pretty good view.  The bed was very comfortable, and the bathrooms which are standard in every room at the hotel were amazing.  JJ and I had a great time in Seattle for a romantic long weekend, in large part thanks to this hotel.  We also really liked the large number of pillows we had on the bed (5 usable pillows and 2 throw pillows I believe).

The staff is extremely helpful and courteous from check-in, to concierge, to the bell staff.  Paul the concierge got us reservations at a restaurant that does not normally accept reservations (props Paul!).  Everyone in general was very friendly and always said hello and greeted us without being overbearing.

We ate breakfast at Ruth's Chris, which I will review separately, but say here that it was pretty good, especially considering it didn't cost us anything.

We also got a great rate... 25% off plus free breakfast each morning with AAA membership.

All in all, this is a superbly run hotel that obviously cares deeply about the quality of their guests' stays.  I would definitely like to stay here again...maybe in a corner suite next time?

This is a hotel where style took precedence over substance. It's beautiful but there are a number of practical elements that are lacking that lead to frustration. The bath is lovely and feels very much like a spa with a separate tub and standing shower. However, when you lean back against the back to the tub, you hit the "drain release" and the water drains. Grrrr. The doors are beautiful but they keep out no noise whatsoever. I was in Seattle for a 4 day stay but could only get booked here for 3 days. Several times I  asked about cancellations for the last night. Nothing. I check out move to another Hyatt and my colleague tells me "you didn't have to check out. They had some cancellations." BS in my book. How many times should I have checked? I checked 3 times and no one could have made a note that I was looking to not have to move 2 blocks away.The service component is totally lacking at this facility. Beautiful hotel but really short on common sense.

Things keeping this from 5 stars:
1)No free internet  ($10 for 24hrs of wifi through T Mobile)
2)No swimming pool (they do have a whirlpool/sauna)
3)Valet Parking $30+ a day plus tips

Overall a very nice hotel and excellent service.  If you want a pool stay at the Hyatt Olive 8 one block away.

I had room 2503 which was a great room for two.  It's a corner room which means the seating area is immediately upon walking in.  There is a TV and a couple couches.  You then turn a corner and walk down a hallway that is lined with closets.  Halfway down is a nicely appointed bathroom (marble, separate tub and glass enclosed shower) and then the bedroom area.  Bed area is small, but big enough for a King plus one chair and a TV.  

One nice touch was the automatic shades that were operated by a switch next to the bed.  

Location:  Really good location, especially for those who are going to the convention center.  You are about six blocks directly north of Pike Place Market.  Two or so blocks from huge Nordstrom's attached to Pacific Place mall, three or four from huge Macy's.  One block from two movie theaters.  Ruth's Chris is attached to the hotel as well as a Starbucks and a Blue C Sushi.

Overall if you don't care about a pool then I think you will enjoy your stay at this hotel.

I usually stay at the Olive 8 across the street, but I figured why not give this one a try instead.  The staff are super friendly and attentive.  They helped us out on a few recommendation and events going on around the city.

The rooms are sizable, with large bathtubs so that you can take a nice bubble bath with SO lol  Yeah, so what?  I'm a guy and I like bubbles ok!

This place is located right downtown and is walking distance to pretty much everything you need.

Amazing stay. Got our deal on through a travel website where the third night was free so the cost was about $150 less per night. It also included free breakfast everyday through room service.   Which was very good every day. Even without the cost of breakfast it was less then most places in town.. The room is ample and the bathroom is very large and modern. They look exactly like the pictures on here. No fridge, just honor bar. Our room(1724) had a view of the space needle! They have a deli downstairs that have some convienence items and Boars head sandwhiches. Bit pricy but hey it is right here in the hotel. Game works and the theater is across the street and it is only 2 blocks up from Westlake center, monorail station. You come right out of the hotel and walk straight down Pine to the market. Plus you pass so much shopping on the way.

The gym, hot tub, sauna and steam room are very clean and modern. I did use them and it was wonderful. Lobby was very large. Everytime we needed something they were very helpful.

wi-fi is $10 for 24 hours from first login.  Maybe because it is a convention space they figure they can get it because people will charge it to their company?  Had friends visiting and the self parking garage was only $18 for 8 hours. About $10 for 4 hours I think.  Elevators from the garage straight into the hotel. I think Valet was $31 for 10 hours, but maybe that was all day.

I love this hotel. The rooms are nice, and the bathroom is HUGE!! I'm a sucker for a huge bathroom because, let's face it, girls spend a lot of time there. The hotel room fits 4 very comfortably. It's really close to everything we were going to do during our stay in Seattle. The beds were comfortable, and the staff are cute (cute as in, the cleaning lady left us a thank you note!), nice and helpful. One thing that does not exactly make sense to me is, they put the TV in front of one bed and not between the two beds. What if the person[s] on the other bed wanted to watch TV too?

My only complaint is $36 valet parking... per day. Seattle parking is steep! (pun intended, not funny huh?)

This hotel is awesome.  

The rooms have been decorated beautifully.  The rooms have a small, elegant entry way and the spacious bathroom feels like a luxury spa.  The electronic blackout shades are a favorite feature.  There are great views of the sound and downtown Seattle and the staff is extremely helpful and friendly.  All linens are soft and comfy and the bed allows you a great night sleep.  Everything feels clean.  

The Hyatt is located within walking distance of several downtown landmarks, good restaurants, and shopping.  Entering the lobby is like stepping into luxury.  

If I was going to quibble, the placement of electrical outlets in the hotel room is not very convenient and I also didn't find the light switches to be intelligently placed.  Also, the parking can run you an extra $30-$40 a night.  

I would absolutely stay here again.

We will be back! Covenient parking that is reasonable (fees/tax are included and not added later like some places), grand lobby, lots of elevators, friendly staff, good room service and our room was amazing. We stayed in an executive suite on the 26th. Nice view with large windows, 2 bathrooms, large tub, giant shower w/ 2 heads, bathrobes, vanity area, nice appliances, huge closets, 2 flat screens...I could go on and on. And the room had a doorbell...so neat! And rather than a do not disturb sign, you just push a button to illuminate a light. Everything was modern and comfortable. And the hotel location was very convenient to all things downtown! This our new favorite place to stay in Seattle!

This hotel exceeded my expectations. My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and we really enjoyed our stay. The location is very ideal. The walk to Pike Market was only about 5-10 mins away and it's in the heart of the downtown/shopping area. The staff were all very friendly and the facility itself was pretty impressive; nice & spacious lobby with plenty of comfortable seating, decor was very modern and very well put together, Ruth's Chris & a huge Starbucks is in the lobby and they have a gym, sauna, hot tub and pool.

I loved loved loved our master suite! It really did feel like a home away from home type of room. It was spotless & sparking clean. Very comfortable bed and pillows. The suite itself was very spacious; living room, bar/kitchen area, 1 huge bath + separate 1/2 bath, a walk in closet and a stunning view from the 28th floor. Our room also came w/ free wifi.

We opted not to valet our car and paid $30 per for day self parking which is located under the hotel.

I've only come here for community benefit dinners. They've raised a lot of money with a nice ambiance, decent food, and a good layout in the ball room. For my friends who've planned these dinners they like to work with the staff and everything goes off without a hitch.

I'm usually a little skeptical of any major hotel chain in general, but I'm especially skeptical of one that's located in a high-traffic tourist zone, and ESPECIALLY one that is located in a high-traffic tourist zone that also happens to be in a city's downtown core. BUT I love me a good hotel AND I love me a good deal, SO I found myself here, at the Grand Hyatt, a chain hotel located in downtown Seattle, smack-dab in the middle of tourist-land. Given the chance, funny things happen to peeps like me in places like this; once I get over my no-television-owning, only-patronizing-independent-boutique-shopping egotistical ways, the hotel suddenly becomes a place of leisure and luxury.

Well, relatively.

Much like a single woman of a certain age who is facing a sudden change in sexual inclinations, the Grand Hyatt is going through a bit of an identify crises. With no fewer (and probably more than) four different design styles going on in any given section of the hotel (including multiple odes to various jungle prints scattered throughout), the aesthetic itself isn't what I'd call, "grand" per se. It's all a bit disjointed.

But unlike that same single woman of a certain age, the staff here actually care about someone other than themselves. They didn't get rid of that pesky $10 a day internet fee (for real? Ten dollars??), but: upgrades (and not the kind the aforementioned female is looking for) and complimentary bubbly (and I don't mean the ginormous bathtub) and truffles (not the kind the dogs sniff out in France) for those of us celebrating an anniversary (this is where I come in), means that this hotel has made a fan outta this girl (and I'm not single, nor of a certain age... full stop).

SO: Bathrobes and bubbles and multiple televisions: WUT.

i can't say enough wonderful things about this hotel.  It made my trip even more enjoyable.  

--The staff was pleasant and helpful
--The room was exceptionally clean, quiet and HUGE.  
--The bathroom was generously sized and had both a walk-in shower and a jacuzzi tub.
--The fitness center was fantastic.  Lots of machines (bikes, treadmills and ellipticals) and free weights.  They also have a nice jacuzzi , steam room and sauna.
--The location is central to a lot of shopping and attractions.
--Wi-Fi is available to purchase but free for Hyatt members.
I will stay here the next time I'm in Seattle.  And, I'm now sold on Hyatts in general so I will definitely check other properties on my next trip.

Kudos to the Grand Hyatt staff for maintaining an excellent property!!!!

Great location - convenient to the light rail, 7 blocks from Pikes Market and everything in between!  If you are on an extended stay, the corner suite for three people is perfect!  Opt for the upgrade for an additional $29 -- worth every penny!  The upgrade offers you significantly more space, and two, yes two bathrooms!  

Bit disappointed the wireless internet costs $9.99/24hr.  Also, had confirmed reservations for x price; however, were billed $25/night more upon check-out.  It was an easy fix since I had a copy of our reservation which the clerk accepted and adjusted the bill accordingly.  Just a slight hassle I wouldn't expect.

Fantastic view of the city and water.  The amenities were nice such as the gym and hot tub.  The 30th floor suite was pretty impressive with floor to ceiling windows, remote controlled curtains, a living room with TV, a bedroom with TV and a king bed, and an insane bathroom with a shower separate from the tub and the toilet separated by a door.  There's even a vanity.  I would definitely stay here again for a splurge ($270/ night).  Within walking distance to Pike's Place.

I definitely like staying at Hyatt hotels.

What to expect....

What's in the area?: Washington State Conversation Center, Cheesecake factory, barnes and nobles, regal cinema, gameworks, starbucks, nyc deli, sushi C  pacific place, all across the street or within the block. Lots of shopping in the area within a few blocks from each other.  6 blocks to Pikes Places

Parking in the area: Overnight Hyatt parking is $30 with in and out. or $8 for two hrs meter parking (if you find a spot) after 8pm Free Parking, start paying for parking at 8am. (Free parking all day Sunday) There are cheaper parking in privately own lots a cross the street.

View: None...no.. wait!...Office buildings

Hotel: Very Clean, very nice, state of the art gym. Night shift  front desk staff a little rude about extend check out.

What you wouldn't expect....

Hyatt Olive 8 a cross the street, more modern looking building, offers spa services. Grand Hyatt doesn't.

NO Free Wi-fi, (but free wifi at downstairs starbucks) Starbucks is attached to lobby floor.

Grand Hyatt doesn't change or replace towel unless asked. (so don't expected the nicely folded towels or sheets are new/clean!)

Very large bathroom, I mean large! Tub and shower separate.

Wow factor? Seattle is known for rain, they provide a umbrella for you to use in the room closets. Which is Awesome!

Overall, this hotel made accessing to Seattle attraction a lot easier, and comfortable.

Amazing banquet or reception facility. Transcendently detailed service. Amazingly tasty food. Not at all like the bland rubber chicken of mass production facilities. And the best part was the very flavorful strong coffee. I have attended an annual banquet at GH for the past three years. And every year, no kidding, I look forward to their coffee. Seriously!

Great hotel in downtown Seattle. It's an easy walk to Pike Place Market and all the downtown shops, yet out of the busiest traffic areas for easier car access.

Beautiful room with a huge bathroom. Loved the soaking tub and the separate shower. Didn't care for the wall mirror directly opposite the toilet, but oh well.

Loved the plush robe - wish there would have been two so we didn't have to fight over it. Also enjoyed the nice touches like the blackout shade and the do not disturb button.

Hotel has inside access to a Starbucks, a sushi restaurant and a deli. Regular Internet was $9.95 for 24 hours. Valet was pricey, but we got it included with our rate.

Great location, comfortable rooms, great views.  The gym, hot tub, sauna, and steam room are very nice.  The staff were accommodating and helpful throughout our stay.  We upgraded to an executive suite and it was lovely.  The suites have 2 bathrooms, soaking tub, and a duel head shower.  There is a lounge area in your room with a bar and a fridge.  A little on the spendy side but worth it if you're planning on entertaining and spending time in your room.

I do love you can run down in the morning to Starbucks and that Blue C sushi is right there as well.  Ruth Chris is also in the hotel....but I'm not a huge fan of this chain-especially with so many other great restaurants at better price points nearby.

The hotel is within walking distance to all the downtown shopping, Pike street market, and all the theaters.  

Overall a great hotel to stay in but a little on the spendy side and they even wanted to charge extra for internet.

My fiance and I stayed one night at the Grand Hyatt on our way to Orcas Island to be married.  I booked a corner suite through an AmEx travel account.  My fiance was going to arrive at the hotel about two hours before I was, so I called ahead and ensured that she would be able to get into the room.  I spoke to a manager, who said that she added my fiance to the reservation and gave me a confirmation number.  I provided the confirmation number and the email containing the reservation, which included her name, to my fiance, and, you guessed it, when she arrived they would not let her into the room.

In my phone call I specifically requested that the experience be stress-free on my fiance; I wanted her to be able to check in and relax.  Instead, she found herself, almost in tears, arguing with the front desk staff.  They wouldn't even look at the confirmation number.  The reservation email with her name didn't sway them.  Then, after jerking her around for forty-five minutes, they let her into the room.  What changed their minds?  We still don't know.

When I arrived, the front desk staff seemed annoyed that I had a problem with their actions.  I was very polite, and feel that perhaps I should have been less so.

After going to my room I called hotel services and requested a second robe and some extra towels.  They never arrived.  If a guest is paying for a corner suite, is it too much to ask that they get extra towels upon request?

My fiance discovered black hair in the shower and toenail clippings on the floor of the bathroom.

Our view was primarily of a huge flat rooftop.  My fiance said that she had wanted to go back to the desk and request a higher floor, but after her check in experience, she was literally afraid to do so.

That's your legacy, Grand Hyatt.  You made my fiance afraid to talk to your desk staff on the night before her wedding.

I have never written a poor review online before, but what I wanted to be a luxurious, relaxing stay was a hassle every step of the way.  The Grand Hyatt Seattle will never get my business again, and should not get yours.

Very nice hotel, location was PERFECT for going to the Seattle Convention Center (right across the street!) A Starbucks and Ruth Chris Steakhouse is connected to the hotel, along with a Blue C Sushi (Conveyor belt sushi). Room itself was really clean,great views, good design and good (if expensive, but most hotels have this price point) room service. Bathroom was spacious. However, bed was a bit uncomfortable but that might be due to personal preference.

I would have given the hotel 5 stars if the food was good.  But the hotel suites ROOOOOOOOOCK AND THE SERVICE IS SUPER A-1

This hotel is beautiful. We stayed on the 16th floor and had a great view of the city. My favorite part was definitely the bathroom because it's so huge. There is both a shower and tub and mirrors all around. There was enough space for my two sisters and I to all get ready in the bathroom which is always great.

The location is perfect. We were within walking distance of everything we wanted to do in Seattle as well as Seattle University.

I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

There are only three things I consider when deciding on a hotel.  Location, location, location.  Well, perhaps there is a fourth consideration...a comfortable bed.  The GF and I chose the Grand Hyatt to serve as our home away from home during our nearly week-long stay.  The Grand Hyatt occupies prime real estate in Downtown Seattle.  It's two blocks away from the Light Rail station which makes it surprisingly easy and convenient to get to and from Sea-Tac.  It's next door to the convention center.  It's also just up a few blocks from Pike Place Market and within easy walking distance of many restaurants, bars, shopping, movie theaters, and music venues.  

We had a corner room on the 16th floor which had a partially obstructed view of the Sound.  The room was clean and spacious especially the bathroom with a full tub and separate shower.  However, the furnishings were surprisingly generic to the point that the couch and chair almost looked and felt like patio furniture.  Still, the bed was comfortable and the linens were of decent thread count.  It didn't feel like we were sleeping on a burlap sack.  Since we were in a corner room, lots of light streamed in our windows.  The blinds, however, were powered and controlled by a switch by the bed.  Housekeeping service was thorough but not intrusive, always seeming to hit our room while we were out tooling around the city.

The hotel, itself, is modern looking and has all the standard amenities like a conference rooms, a business center, fitness center, and restaurants.  A Ruth's Chris, Starbucks, a sushi restaurant, and a convenience store were all off of the lobby. Unfortunately, internet isn't free in the hotel, but free wifi is available at Starbucks.  Although we didn't have a car, there's garage parking with valet service.   The Grand Hyatt has everything a business traveler or tourist needs.  It's a plus that they provide better than average service.  Still, its location can't be beat.  The Grand Hyatt will very likely be my first choice to stay the next time I'm in town.

This place was pretty cool.  A lot to offer.  They have a steakhouse, starbucks and sushi all connected to it.  

Staff is very good.  Friendly, helpful, very informative and they bend over backwards for you.

Rooms where clean. Bed wasn't that comfortable.  The bathroom was amazing, very big.  Huge glass shower, big bath tub.  Found it a little weird that there wasn't a fan in the bathroom.

We hada great view of the city, water and Needle.  We stayed on the 24th and it was very sweet.

Only thing I felt was a little cheap on their part was the internet.  You have to pay for it wether your in your room or in the buisness center.  Really you couldn't give your customers free internet.  That was a big minus in my book.

Location is great.  Waling distance to everything in Seattle..... Well not everything, but close to the Monorail, and all public transportation.  

Oh and one more thing.  Why is it that no matter what hotel I stay at no one has figured out that not all people are under 6'0 tall.  I can never sleep in a bed that cover me all the way.  I'm 6'5 and never ever does any hotel do this, all sheets and blankets go to my shoulders and if i pull more my feet hang out.  So have freezing feet or freezing upper body.  Someone please do something about his   I'm off my soap box.

I had a nice sweet and short stay here a few weeks ago.  So I don't have much to say other than a few details that I really appreciated about the hotel, and some interesting observations:

- I arrived fairly late after a long haul flight from New York.  I had a meeting the next morning fairly early.  I got my key, headed up to practically the top floor, tired and delirious, only to find my key didnt work.  So I whined and headed back to the lobby, 30 something floors down (I think)... I get to the front desk, and the staff was so sweet.  One of them actually helped me take my luggage up with me, as they could tell I was exhausted.
- Ruths Chris in the lobby makes a solid breakfast
- The room had a beautiful view of Seattle and the Space Needle, and was very spacious.  The bathroom was so big, perfect for a wake up shower or a relaxing bath ... both bath and shower are separated.
- The hotel isn't ornate as some of the Grand Hyatt offerings sprouting up around the world recently (notably, Shanghai and Beijing), but it does the job and does it well.

I'd stay here again for sure.

I'm really torn about the Grand Hyatt.  The location is great, you are walking distance from Pike's Place, the space needle and many other attractions.  The downside to traveling for work is you start to expect more from a hotel than just location.  The room was clean for the most part.  I called to have the sheets changed before heading out for the day only to return to see the beds were made but the sheets hadn't been changed.  I called the desk and they said they would send someone up.  The housekeeper arrived 30+ minutes later and acted like I was asking too much to expect clean sheets after requesting them.  It also really bothers me that they charge for wifi.  When you're paying for a higher end hotel you would expect this to be included but I guess not.  They also had HORRIBLE in room coffee, thankfully there was a Starbucks right downstairs.

Spent two nights at the Grand Hyatt on vacation.  The room was Hyatt quality, but the view was extremely disappointing! We overlooked the roof of the building next to us, and it was very industrial.  The worst thing was that after we checked out and paid our bill in full, the Hyatt did not release the hold on our account for 5 days after we had checked out! Luckily we didn't need the $858 they were holding, but I know that when I was younger that would have been a huge deal on vacation! We had gone on to Vancouver BC and I couldn't easily call Hyatt to ask them to remove the hold. The good things about the hotel were free Wi-fi and a nice, large bathroom.  While I am a Hyatt fan, I wouldn't stay at this hotel again in Seattle.

This hotel is in a perfect location!  RIght at the intersection of 7th and Pine, it is a quick and plesant walk down the Pikes market, only a block away from Pacific Place, and 2 blocks away from Nordstroms.  There is tons of other shopping in the area as well which is great.

As far as the actual hotel, everything about the room was perfect.  We stayed here for a couple nights in July and didn't have any issues.  I especially loved that the window coverings were thick enough that no light got through.

For breakfast, the only option they have is Ruths Chris Steakhouse, which is good and bad.  Good cause it is insanely delicious and those chocolate chip pancakes they served me were to die for, but bad because it was quite expensive and it would have been nice to have a cheaper alternative.

We come to Seattle a lot.  My husband essentially works here although we live in Austin Texas.  We have stayed at many hotels in the city and this one is the best.  Much better than the Sheraton which is just about a block away.

What are the reasons for this strong statement:
1.  The hotel is in a great location.  10 minute walk to many, many things including great shopping, food, Whole Foods (a staple for me), Pike Place Market, 1 minute from Nordstrom if you care about that sort of thing, 1 minute from the Westlake Station so you could actually take a train to and from the airport for $3 instead of a $50 cab ride.

2.  Wonderful service.  Personal.  People remember your name and go out of their way to help.  My husband got very ill while on a business trip and staying at this hotel.  They did everything they could to help including getting us a microwave to make chicken soup.

3.  Fabulous gym.  Spotlessly clean.  Plenty of well cared for equipment.  Even scented cold towels.

4.  Super comfortable bed.

5.  Great housekeeping staff.  Noticed we were low on tooth paste and left some for us!

6.  Starbucks in lobby.  I don't care about this in fact I don't like Starbuck's.  But I know many people love it.

7.  Great little deli in lobby.  Many low cost food options here.

8.  Ruth Chris in lobby and attached to hotel has amazing happy food prices both early and after

Also very quiet.  Nice black out shade for room.  Super clean.

All good. Stay here.  You won't go wrong.

Great place to go if you don't have a car. The parking structure charges 30 dollars a day and the hotel seems to forget to tell you that you have to prepay it. I know I only lost 17 dollars but it's the principal of the matter. You pay for a really expensive hotel and find out it is 210 dollars to park there. So bootleg. They should mention this somewhere noticeable so people are not surprised. They should have to tell every guest about this so there are no surprises. Every time I get a surprise it always seems in the favor of the other party.

Hello Seattle Yelpers!

Stayed here for 4 nights during Memorial Day weekend 2010.
It was my first visit to Seattle and The GHS was perfect.

We stayed in room 1511
Great location! walking distance to PPM.
Big bathroom and room. Shower & Tub.

Good valet service! My Bff and I used the valet during our whole stay. We went in and out through out our whole stay...I think they got sick of us... they were really good though, just call from your room and they'll get your car for you.

-1 because they didn't have any options for food/drinks during the late night. no room service at night which sucked. We ended up walking around town for 45 mins until we found someplace open (subway).

If you're looking for a hotel to stay while visiting Seattle, book at the GH!

LOVED this hotel! I took my boyfriend here for his birthday and Veterans Day. I got a great deal on Priceline for $100. When we got to the hotel I told the lady checking us in that this was a special night for us since my boyfriend is active duty and we never get time together. She upgraded us to a suite and sent us complimentary champagne and chocolate. The room was HUGE!
This was such a good start to the night.
After a great night of dinner and drinks we came back to relax.  
The tub was long a deep. It was very relaxing. There was a separate standup shower. The bathrobes were so comfortable and soft. The bed was very comfortable and plush. There was sitting room with a television and also one in the bedroom. We had beautiful views of Pike place market and Elliot Bay. The other windows had perfect views of the Space Needle. The location is perfect and you can walk anywhere downtown.
We will absolutely stay here again...even without the upgrades.

Oops, I thought I already wrote a review for the Hyatt but I guess I forgot. I stay here for about 2-3 weekends per year and have never been disappointed. Not only is the location awesome, but the rooms are very clean. The staff has always been super accommodating and professional. The bathtubs are freaking amazing!! I highly recommend walking over to LUSH to pick up something to make your bath experience even more amazing (be careful which one you get though because if they're colored they make cleaning the bath more of a hassle for the staff and last time I cleaned the bath myself because I didn't want to give the cleaning staff more work.... maybe I'm just too nice hahaha). But yeah, HIGHLY recommend, I'll probably post another update once I stay there again next spring. :)

This was the hotel I stayed at when I was volunteering for a convention. Oh my gosh, the rooms are amazing! the beds are comfortable, the rooms are spacious and my favorite part was the HUGE bathroom. I did not want to leave my room!

1st time to Seattle and 1st time to Grand Hyatt. I must say they have reached every expectation. Excellent service. Very clean room. Super close to everything you need in Seattle. Customer service is hands down second to none. The bathroom is HUGH.. Big soaking tub and separate shower. Had a perfect view of the space needle. Will stay here again.

This hotel was wonderful. Very beautiful, ideally located for shopping and dining, and great views of the city.

Beautiful and clean
Wonderful rooms with huge bathrooms
Comfortable beds

Didn't like to have to pay to get online in the business center
Need more channels on the TV
Fridge needed to be colder

My overall stay was great, and I would highly recommend this hotel for others. I love the fact that we could walk out of the hotel and into a wonderful high end shopping mall that also had nice dining options.

The hotel itself wasn't bad. Some really ugly paintings, but wonderful bathrooms. Room service is terrible food, might as well take a walk to the cheesecake factory or any of the other restaurants in the area. My main complaint is the THEFT. And I will go into more detail about that now.

Left our hotel room from 10:30 am to about 2pm to go to Pikes Place Market and lunch, while we were gone a bottle of vodka went missing, which we didn't realize until we were packing for check-out at about 1:30 am. (We had to leave early in the AM because my husband had to drive me home before going to work the next morning.) We informed the front desk immediatly when we noticed it was missing. At check-out they told us they would inform security and contact us back. When we got home, as we were unpacking, we also realized that someone had gotten into the bottom of my bag and taken 5 vicoden pills out of a prescription bottle, but the bottle was left behind. I called the hotel as soon as I realized those were missing. They said they would question the maid. Later I got a call from the security manager who told me that the made said she did not see it, though she could of placed the alcohol in the trash, even though it was with a bunch of other alcohol, all unopened. His solution was that he would talk to the maid and tell her that she shouldn't touch the guests stuff.

So apparently my alcohol and my husbands medicine just magically got up and walked away. Or as the security guy tried to explain, the maid might have thrown it away. It makes total sense that the maid would dig to the bottom of my bag, empty the prescription bottle, leave the bottle, and toss the pills. Right....

A five star review is hard to get from me. I always think there is room for improvement. However, the Hyatt had done an amazing job accommodating me. They even bent the rules a little to make sure I could check in on time.
The lady at the front desk, who's name escapes me at the moment starting with the letter K- she took responsibility well and fixed the problem.
Loved everything, it was beautiful!

Stayed here for two nights in July.
We booked an Emerald suite and ended up on the 28th floor with obstructed views of the sound, and views of the city from two angles. (Corner room)

The scale of the Hyatt is impressive, clean entry, beautiful lobby, and comfortable sitting area.
Service was both friendly and timely, and we were up to our room in no time.

For your reference, here is a video I took.  The description contains details about the suites in the Hyatt: youtube.com/watch?v=75g5…

Our suite was huge, more space than one could ask for.

Other than that, there's little to tell. Ruth's Chris steak house is attached to the lobby.

It's located right in the heart of downtown. Prime spot if you need to get to public transportation, plan on shopping a lot, great view of Seattle's skyline, and close to many restaurants. I was able to walk from the hotel to Pike's Place Market and the piers within 15-20 minutes. The hotel is also accessible from the attached Starbucks and Blue C Sushi.

The corner suite was so quiet and we had just enough room for our 3 day stay.  An additional roll out bed actually has a decent mattress. Big windows adorned the room for a spectacular view. Wifi is only  free in the lobby and Starbucks on the ground floor; otherwise, you'll need to pay a fee. If you have to sneak a workout in they have a perfectly clean and suitable gym. It looked like new equipment and hot towels are provided!

One Hotel Pet Peeve: Mini fridge is actually a mini bar and therefore unusable for your own needs!!

My husband and I had a fabulous experience at the Grand Hyatt! We only stayed a night but were treated like royalty. Every staff member we encountered was extremely helpful and friendly. We always had someone to help with the door, etc. The location of the hotel is perfect for the downtown area.

Beautiful lobby and not to mention the rooms! Clean, spacious, chic. We had beautiful views of the surrounding skyline and great light-out automatic shades. Super comfy bed, linens, and pillows. A great soaking tub I used more than once during my stay, roomy shower.

Great fitness center, quality Life Fitness equipment and again kept very clean. I LOVED the cold-minty towels they keep to refresh you after your workout. I didn't use the sauna or other spa facilities but they are there.

There is a Starbucks and a well-stocked Deli in the "shops" section of the lobby. There is also a Dry Bar close by, a separate review on that later. Maybe my only complaint here would be the cost of parking, but what else can you expect with this downtown location?

Treat yourself and stay here, you won't regret it!

Overall great hotel between 4-5 stars in an excellent central location in Seattle. Compared to a Ritz Carlton or Four Seasons, it's difficult to give any hotel a 5 star by comparison. My big 4 requirements for a bsuiness hotel were met very adequately: attentive/friendly staff, great restaurant, excellent fitness center and very clean room. If you have the opportunity to request a top floor room with separate side room (almost a suite), then take it. The views are incredible, and the roominess is very comforting. Would definitely stay here as a top choice again in Seattle.

Fourth of July is a time to hit the road and with 90-100 degree temps in Chicago, I went West for the cooler air of Seattle.  When I was hotel shopping I saw that the Grand Hyatt's rates were identical to many others in the area, so I decided to jump in with them.  After I booked, it gave me an option to "try" to upgrade to a suite for $39, so, I said "What the hell!" and went for it.

After, arriving in Seattle and taking the rail line to downtown, I emerged and walked 2 blocks to the Grand Hyatt.  The lobby was quiet, intimate and spacious.  Cassie welcomed me and began to check me in.  She confirmed she upgraded me to the Emerald suite and told me I really gotten a good deal!  "I hope so," I though to my self.  I ended up on the top floor with an amazing view of the sound, as well as much of downtown.

The suite was awesome.  It is hard to describe such an amazing room, with the view and all.  It just sort of takes your breath away for a minute and you just soak it all in.  None of the pictures here do this property justice.  If you like what you see, you will be even more impressed when you are there.  The suite did not even look like a hotel room, but rather some nice apartment I only wish I could afford.  There were plenty of knick knacks, art, books, etc, all over.  

The Grand bed was  -  well, grand!  You almost never want to get out of it.  The linens were amazing, the bath stocked with every essential.  Even a separate bath gel in case a bubble bath was in order (which it was one night).  With more than enough room for two, several additional people could easily fit it with out any problems.  Everything was neat, clean, comfortable, and housekeeping did an amazing job each day!

The real gem of the hotel with Grand Club on 27.  Although, not a lot of snacks, there were free sodas and juice all throughout the day.  Tom, our host in the evening is the jewel holding the crown together!  Beyond friendly, fun, and always on top of everything, he genuinely seemed to care!  He remembered several guests drink choices from night to night (He certainly remembered mine, and I saw him acknowledge and recognize others).  This level of personal attention is what sets this place apart from the rest.

Watching the game on TV in the lounge, sipping a cocktail and munching on some cheese and veggies, I was quite happy.  Tom seemed able to converse with kids and adults alike.  Making his guests smile and happy seems to come naturally for him.  Also a wealth of information on places to go, and the best way to get there, it was like having a live Google to chat with!

The location of this hotel means that you really do not need a car.  You can walk just about any where or a short cab ride at most.  Save your money - forgo the car (and parking) and enjoy this city.  There is a Starbucks and Deli in the lobby and several other Starbucks within a few blocks, so access to coffee and food are not a worry.  Plenty of shopping and all the great attractions (Pike Place, Space Needle, etc) nearby!

I would certainly stay here again - even if it cost a little bit more!  Pamper yourself - relax and enjoy Seattle from the Grand Hyatt - it will be a a Grand Memory for sure!

Lovely, centrally located hotel with fantastic service. I stay here when it gets too hot to stay at home (about 2 nights a year), when I want a hell of a party but don't want to dirty my house, and for romantic nights up high in the Seattle sky.

I have never been disappointed, though it's odd to stay at a hotel in your home city. The concierge is always helpful, front desk is very inviting and kind, and the rooms are spotless, luxurious, and cozy as well. I've even taken some decorating tips back from the suites :)

The Grand Hyatt located on 7th and Pine, One of my favorite Places / Locations to stay at in seattle. everyone is great and i love how anything you can possibly want is walking distance. from the front desk to the bell mens, starbucks to NYC deli, they provide excellent service and make you feel like you're at home. The Valets are the first and last people you see entering and exiting the hotel, they are an excellent team and very friendly as well. whatever information you may want to know they are the people to help and talk to. Thanks Hyatt!

I stayed at this hotel prior to a cruise out of Seattle and found the accommodations to be pretty decent. The staff at the desk, concierge, and bellman were super friendly, helpful and polite. However, I was annoyed when my phone charger went missing right after housekeeping did their daily rounds.  After a quick phone call to security, they sent up an extra charger from lost and found. The incident should not have occurred, but I was impressed and thankful that that it was rectified promptly.

The hotel is in a prime location and has some great eateries within the building. I also liked the view from the corner suite I booked. Seeing the Space Needle each night was such a delight!  The furnishings themselves in the room seem to be a bit outdated but they did the job well. The room was spacious and had amazing closet space. The highlight of the room had to be the bathroom-- all marble and granite. As a Hyatt Gold Passport member, I always see what the Regency Clubs have to offer. Unfortunately, the one at this hotel had a lackluster selection of items during my stay. It was a nice effort, but it didn't compare to other properties..

Bottom line-- If you're looking for an above average hotel in a nice location with great service, then the Grand Hyatt Seattle is for you!

A great hotel that may force you to cuddle with someone you dislike.

The Hyatt has so many positives: The Location is great, the rooms are very nice and have great views, everything is immaculate and the staff are uniformly excellent. Bonus points for holding my luggage painlessly for multiple hours. If you're going to the convention center it's amazingly convenient. Same for the Paramount.

My only beef was that I reserved a two double bed room and when I arrived I had a single King. I was informed that the website did not guarantee a number of beds, this was distrurbing because my roommate and I did not want to cuddle.

Conveniently the front desk was able to work some real magic and get us a great room with seperate beds. I will always be in their debt. So if you definitely need multiple beds beware the Hyatt. However if you are trying to get closer to someone this might be a good way to be forced to share some under the covers time.

TLDR: The Grand Hyatt is a great place to get sexually harassed by an acquaintance.

We came here for one night and got a special deal.  This is a very modern hotel.  Everything is pretty new.  They even have an umbrella for you because it rains so much in Seattle.  They have even a list of things which they state you can and can't take, I found this to be very funny.  The bathroom was huge, I had plenty of space to stretch any which way I wanted to.  They had a fridge and a safe.  It was a very clean hotel.  It is walking distance to the Pike Place Market and the Seattle Waterfront.  It's close to most of Seattle's major attractions.  The hotel is very business like, probably more for the business traveler than a vacationer but we found a good deal and took it.  I recommend this hotel if you coming to Seattle for a day or two, won't break the bank.  They have valet parking but I chose to park the car myself since I hate to give the keys to anyone.

Spectacular, modern hotel that's eons beyond all the humdrum, run-of-the-mill Hyatts everywhere.

Every room provides a floor-to-ceiling, picture-perfect view of the city's action unfolding beneath you, with remote-controlled shades heightening the sense of discovery as you let the world in at the beginning of a new day.

The rooms themselves are cozy and modern, as are the bathrooms, which are exquisite and have both a bathtub and a shower. I've stayed here many times, and service at the front desk, concierge, and valet has always been courteous and efficient.

And the location can't be beaten. There's a Starbucks and a Ruth's Chris right in the lobby, and the hotel is in the heart of downtown, within walking distance to everything.

The hotel and staff was nice friendly. They had construction going on throughout the day so wouldn't stay in the room from 0800-1600. The noise was to much. They offered to move us but then we would lose the view we had/paid for.
I would assume a 4 star hotel would have something better than single ply toilet paper from a honey bucket.  
The main reason I will not be staying here again is the parking. I stayed for one Saturday night. The room after taxes was $230. My parking fee for one day in the parking garage they recommend was just under $60 (no valet).  I have enjoyed all my experiences at Hyatt hotels except this one.
If you do not have a car to park, will not be in your room between 0800 - 1600 and don't mind bringing your own toilet paper this is a great Hotel for you.  Hope this helps your decision.

One of the best hotel experiences ever. Rooms are clean and comfortable, and ours had a clear view of the Space Needle (literally fell asleep looking at it). Front desk staff are nothing but polite and accommodating.

And yes, the best bathrooms ever. EVER. We were so inspired that we had a robe party with wine and cake since it was Valentine's Day (rated PG). Friends staying over at the Sheraton came over and were dumbfounded. Don't worry, GH, they didn't sleep over.

This is my favorite hotel in downtown Seattle!  I recommend getting a corner suite as you can get some amazing views of the water and Space Needle. They have a decent health club and hot tub although I feel kind of boxed in the workout room because there are no windows. All the staff I dealt with were very professional and strive to make sure you have a comfortable stay. Ruth's Chris downstairs has a good happy hour and you can walk almost anywhere else. I will continue to stay here whenever I'm downtown.

The hotel itself is ok for the price. However, my experience there was absolutely horrendous. We, a group of girlfriends spent hundreds of dollars to rent a suite for our bachelorette party. We only stayed in there for a while when went out. After the night out, we returned to our room to talk. I swear We were almost whispering to ourselves in the room when we got a complaint that we were being too loud. We then lower our voices even more and fifteen minutes later, the front desk came up again and asked us to leave or they will call the police. The reason we wanted to rent a suite so that we can have our privacy and bonding time with each other. We don't spent hundreds of dollars to listen to complaints, being bothered, and her kicked out. Our almost whispering voices couldn't possibly disturb anyone in the other rooms unless they have eavesdropping system installed in each room..or their walls are so cheaply made that you will never be able to enjoy your privacy. Grand Hyatt Hotel ruined our night, ruined our experience, and made neither of us ever want to return or recommend it to anyone else. Horrible experience. I rather spend that hundreds of dollars and go bond at a lounge or a restaurant and be treated like a guest. Horrible!! Horrible!! Horrible!!
I felt we were being treated inhumanly and almost racist.

A group of my friends stayed here on NYE. The room itself was tiny but the bathroom was huge! There was a big glass-walled shower as well as a separate deep jetted tub which I wish we had time to use. Not to mention a phone next to the toilet. We could've set up another bed in the bathroom, there was so much space. We took advantage of Ruth Chris being downstairs for a few pre-dinner cocktails which was convenient. I also appreciate that we didn't get charged for some pranks our friends played on us in the wee hours of the morning. We could have been in a pickle but the staff handled it well, which I appreciated on what was surely a busy cluster of a night for them. On the downside, parking (both valet and self-park) is spendy and we didn't get the promised free wifi. But if you need to stay in the heart of downtown, this is a good option.

HFS folks, this is a pretty nice hotel. Seriously struggling to think of one that was nicer (Maybe the Ritz in Japan with the heated floors?) Yeah this place was tight, automagic everything, total garage door style blackout blackout shades at the push of a button, stuff like that.

Not sure about the tv channels (too busy out doing stuff) or the cost of the wi-fi (corporate paid). The views out the windows were great. Sure hope I get to stay here again sometime.

Love that the restaurant there is a Ruth's Chris. The corned beef hash for breakfast was amazing.

Beautiful. Grand Hyatt Seattle is most definitely GRAND. The lobby is dimly lit with decor that makes a statement. Their suites are exceptional, with a 180 degree view of downtown and the waterway. It's conveniently located in the heart of downtown, next to the convention center, shopping plaza's, the public market and so much more. Tom Douglas's restaurants: Lola & Serious Pie/Biscuit are both within walking distance. But there are dozens of other great eats and lounges that all just within a 10 minute walk. I wore heels and walking was never a problem (except sometimes on the way home because I'd eaten too much.) Pike's Market, the public market, is not too far either. It's worth it to take the quick 5 minute walk there in the mornings to see the fish tossing and all the hustle and bustle of people. There are great shops and of course more eats. Back to the hotel, the staff is amazing, friendly and very accommodating. Valet is on point, although they can get fairly busy. There is a Ruth's Chris and a Starbucks, both linked to the lobby of the hotel, and a sushi-boat as well. The Grand Club, for those of you with access, does have limiting hours which is unusual for Hyatt Grand clubs. But it sits on the 27th floor with beautiful views and was always clean and fully stocked with drinks and hors d'oeuvres. And last but not least, their fitness facility is top notch complete with a sauna. I would love to stay here again during my next visit to Seattle.

The night stand was a little dusty but that's a very minor detail. The location couldn't be more perfect - a block from monorail that takes you straight to the airport in about 30 min.

Every staff member had a "can do" attitude at this hotel.  Our room was especially nice, as a corner upgrade, but with everything wrong-- items broken or missing.  Yet the staff immediately responded with a happy outlook and replaced or repaired all.  Most impressed.  Housekeeping did a fabulous job.  Front desk and bell hops were attentive and wanted to make sure all needs were met.  What a great locale for exploring the city without having to reserve a car.

I probably wouldn't stay here since it's out of my price range but courtesy of work (since we had a convention/conference) we got to stay here.  I can't complain either.  Plush comfy bed, HUGE bathroom with full bath tub, simply quiet....I really didn't mind calling this place home for awhile.  I took advantage of the bath tub even though I never take baths (more of a shower person) and it made me happy.  It's a great location and when I forgot a brush and called front desk for one they got one for me ASAP.  Definitely got its perks.  Wish I had more time to explore but I  heard their gym is nice too...and there's a spa.

Favorite big-chain hotel in Seattle so far.  We previously stayed at the Sheraton and Pan Pacific.  Grand Hyatt takes the cake.

--Close enough to Pike Place Market to walk...about 10 minutes.

--Starbucks located in the lobby area.

-- HUGE rooms for Seattle.  We got  a double room with a gigantic bathroom and a wonderful tub & shower.  Loved the space.

---Our room had a small fridge (not a minibar, but a fridge).

--Water pressure was amazing, almost like a jet blast haha.  Loved it.

--Great high-end toiletries.

--We were here on an award night and were upgraded to a nicer view and high floor (22nd) for having our Platinum status without having to ask for an upgrade.  Although in terms of loyalty status, I've noticed that Hyatt upgrades less often and not as dramatically as other brands (like IHG).

--Free wi-fi with loyalty program sign up, which is itself free.

--Lots of freebies if you request it (like slippers, toothbrush/make up remover pads/nail polish removing kids, sewing kits, all sorts of random stuff).

--"Free" Starbucks coffee for the coffee-maker.

--Really soft/plush towels and robes for use.

--Plenty of outlets for charging stuff.

---Really strong/great shower water pressure.  Loved it.  I usually dislike hotel showers b/c it takes forever to wash my hair due to low water pressure, but the one in our room was like a jet blast.  


--Valet is a 3rd party contractor, and they were rude, weird and kinda shady.

--Our room had a "used" toilet paper roll.  For a hotel of this caliber, they really should just throw out/remove the half-used roll and give new guests checking in a new one.  It just seems gross, and it leaves a bad impression

--Expensive parking, but I returned a rental car nearby to Alamo and so avoided the charge.

--No real signage, so it was a bit hard to find (for our airport pick up guy as well).

--Very limited basic cable channels, if you care about that kind of thing.  No Disney channel for my kid to watch while I packed so that was annoying.

I'd definitely return for the size of the room, location of Starbucks in the lobby and proximity of the hotel to everything.  Loved it and had a great stay!

Quite happy with the accommodations here.

Pros: HUGE fitness center with plenty of equipment and towels, HUGE bathrooms, plush bathrobes, comfy bed, refrigerators in the room, early check-in if your room is ready (they let me have my room at 11 am instead of the usual 3 pm)

Cons: ice machine on certain floors only, price (about $220 per night -- but you get what you pay for)

The bonus is that it's only a few blocks away from Pike's Market and the Space Needle. Would absolutely stay here again.

Very nice room.  Very comfortable bed and the bathroom may be the nicest hotel bathroom I've seen in a while.  We had a standard king room and the view was not worth mentioning but the blackout shade fixed that problem.  Loved the soaking tub!  Bring your favorite bubbles because you will definitely want a bath and a glass of wine after your adventures.  Lots of shopping near by and a fairly easy walk to Pikes Market.

It's a Grand Hyatt - they're all pretty awesome.

Staff was friendly / rooms were clean / great location.

Only minus was the concierge - I asked her to recommend some speakeasies and she had no clue what I was talking about.

Several friends and I stayed at the Grand Hyatt Seattle while attending an academic conference. The Grand Hyatt was running a promotion during part of our stay, so the room was very reasonably priced, especially for the quality of the hotel and its location. Two main things about our stay stand out to me:

(1) Room quality: The room was beautiful! Several kinds of marble in the bathroom, which also had a beautiful shower and large jacuzzi tub. The room itself was very comfortable - plush beds, nice TV, and good Internet connection. We were on one of the higher floors, so the view was nice, too.

(2) Location: The Grand Hyatt is right in the middle of downtown Seattle and within walking distance to many major attractions, like the Pike Place Market, Seattle Aquarium, and other restaurants/shops. There's also a City Target nearby, in case you forget something. If you're interested in visiting the Space Needle, however, it's a short ride away.

The hotel also had a small fitness center that seemed well-maintained and the front desk staff was always pleasant and willing to store our bags between check-out and our departure. I'd be happy to stay here again!

I booked a room here for my boyfriend's birthday and I was very pleased with how beautiful the hotel was. The room (standard king) was immaculate and I could definitely get used to having such a lush bathroom. The tub was huge! I did manage to break the corkscrew while opening my bottle of wine, so I called to the front desk and another was delivered within a few minutes. The WIFI ended up being 100% free even though their website says otherwise. The location was great too. I was able to easily walk to have cocktails at the Daily Grill, Game Works, and the Tap House. I am quite pleased with the entire experience and I only paid $157 for the room!

I ordered tickets for Comic-Con and then had the option for a hotel night and I jumped at the chance to stay here.  The prices were very good in my opinion.

We arrived early in the day, intending to park there and check in later.  We were able to check-in right then - 10am! cool.  Then we were offered FREE Red Bulls, super duper awesome. During comic-con I got separated from my husband and he went back to the room but we had left our bags in the car and so he got some toiletries from the front desk and he was able to shower and brush his teeth- a great perk!

The parking situation was great, parked on 7th floor and only cost 38$ for 1 1/2 days.

My only complaint was that there was some hair in the shower drain and on the toilet- I provided that feedback in our exit survey email and I got a response from mgt that we should inform them of any future visits- to make sure we have a wonderful time!  

I would definitely stay there again. The location is amazing and it's a really nice place.

This is one of the nicest Hyatt's, if not the best, in the western US. The Regency Lounge is private and also really nice. If you can talk your way into it, try for a room facing the water above the 30th floor. The view is spectacular.

The rooms are nice and free wifi is a perk you get for signing up for Hyatt's loyalty program, which is also free. The Hotel has a nice gym and a Starbucks as well as free wifi all over the place. There's a bar, Starbuck's and even a quiet place to grab an inexpensive meal in the hotel.

I have stayed here multiple times and always had great service.

Self-parking is $35, but if you are nice on check-in, they waive this!

I stay at a lot of Hyatt hotels and have platinum status, but this was far and away the best room I've stayed in to-date.  It was like a studio apartment or something!  On the corner and a high floor so i had some killer views from the living area and the bedroom.  The bathroom was huge and had a full bathtub.  I'm not even a bath-taking type of person, but I probably took a 45 minute bath and it was heaven.  The gym there is lovely. I saw a few people mention that there was only Wi-Fi in the lobby, but i had it in my room and had no problems with the connection or the speed.  The valet guys were awesome and very accommodating even though they were really busy a few times I pulled in.  

Overall great spot.  I might only recommend that if you plan on getting coffee at the Starbucks downstairs in the morning that you give yourself a ton of time.  There were at least 20 people waiting both days I tried it.

My boyfriend and I came here last month for our anniversary so we could spend the next day in the city. We checked in with a nice lady who let us know that they had given us an upgrade with wifi. I'm not sure if this "upgrade" was given to everyone, but it surely was a nice gesture!
When we walked into the room I was amazed by the view. It was nothing like I've ever seen. We had a room with a city/puget sound view and I was in awe the whole night. The bed was extremely comfortable and the bathroom was spacious. The whole room had a romantic feel and it was a perfect way to spend our anniversary.
If you're celebrating something special I would definitely recommend coming to the Grand Hyatt in Seattle! It's a great location with nearby restaurants and shopping centers.

Loved this hotel over the Renaissance I was staying @ for the past 3 days ... The Hyatt is absolute beautiful and smells wonderful and welcoming as you walk in .

I checked in no hassle and very quickly adding that it was a Friday . Very easy check in :)

My room has an amazing view and a small Chinese plant , loved the special touches it has as you walk in.

The bathroom has a shower and full bath - I was completely amazed at the size of the bath tub .... I literally just used it .

Over all great great experience . Will be back !

Love the grand Hyatt

Room 2006

I am a hilton loyalty program member so naturally I'd chose to stay at a Hilton hotel.  However, after some research, I decided on Hyatt this time.  

Great service.  We arrived late morning and the front desk was able to accommodate us for an early check in.  This is one of my pet peeves for most of the hotels that make you wait until 3pm before you can get to your room.  Understand that the guests have traveled afar and would prefer to be able to put down the luggage, relax before heading out to town and maximize their time during stay is important.  Hyatt has done well in this category.

Excellent location! Very centralize in downtown and close to the Westlake station.  Nearby mall and amc.  Lots of restaurants.  Walking distance to pretty much everywhere in downtown.  We were able to return to the hotel in the afternoon everyday to rest after a long walk before dinner.

Beautiful and clean room with nice wood details.  Huge and elegant marbled bathroom with shower, toilet, sink, and tub nicely layout. Definitely a treat to soak in the tub after a long walk.

Nice comfortable bed.  Lots of amenities if you forget any toiletries.  There's an iron board, umbrella, safe, mini-fridge in-room.  One robe and a pair of slippers provided but you can request second if you have two people.  Limited tv channels.

Even at 20th floor, the room has no view.  Perhaps higher floor? Understandably, the hotel is situated in the middle of other high rises so pretty much you get the view of other bldgs.  It is a nice to have but I am not very picky about that.

Check out was a breeze.  I done it online and they will email you a copy of the final bill.  

Overall very satisfy with my stay at this Hyatt and definitely will chose this hotel again if I am in town.

Lovely! Excellent customer service, beautiful accommodations, marble bathroom to die for, clean, in the heart of Downtown Seattle, Starbucks downstairs and in the room, walking distance to most anything you need including the Light Link Rail to the airport (which I highly recommend over a $50 taxi or $30 shuttle), bay view if requested (might cost more), best value for the price compared to other comparable hotels. We'll stay here again next time!!

Rooms are fairly small but have large marble bathrooms which are nice.
The cleanliness of the maid service leaves a lot to be desired. Dirty glasses weren't replaced, newly refreshed bath products were sticky, toilet paper wasn't replaced, hair balls left in shower and the wall in the room upon arrival had stains.
Bed was very uncomfortable.
Starbucks and deli in hotel are very useful. Good Central downtown location close to link station and monorail.
Wouldn't stay here again bc there are too many other options that probably know how to clean rooms and make guests feel valued better.

Recently stayed here for 1 night before heading out on our cruise.
The hotel is in a great location!!
Walking distance to many restaurants and stores, including Target. As well as Pike Place Market which is only a few blocks away!

We booked online and opted for the "eStandby Upgrade" offer. We were able to upgrade to a corner suite room on the 24th floor for only $20!! Totally worth it!
Room was $188 plus $20 upgrade fee plus taxes... $242 a night total.

The room was very clean!
Large bathroom and tons of windows. We had a nice view. Just had to close the curtains in the evening or the people working in the office building across the street could watch everything we were doing! Could be fun!? =)
The remote control curtains were a nice bonus!

The staff was very nice and the bellmen very helpful with hauling all our luggage up and down. He also got us a taxi for 4 people the next morning to take us to the pier.
Great service!!

The NY Deli Market attached to the hotel was also a nice bonus. Very good sandwiches made to order. Very impressed with the food there!

Ruth's Chris Steakhouse is also attached to this hotel. Probably the only RC that serves breakfast? We passed on breakfast there after reading the reviews and seeing the pricing. The Daily Grill is across the street and also serves breakfast.

I would definitely stay here again when in Seattle!

Let's just say I really missed my room on the 47th Floor at the Westin that I had been at during my previous stay in the Emerald City...

The Grand Hyatt wasn't bad per se... but it's certainly not my first choice now that I know I have experienced better within close proximity.

I flew into town for the Rock n Roll marathon, and had requested a little bit of an early check in, which I am ever so grateful they were able to accommodate.

However, the views were not great - 12th Floor doesn't provide any of the sweeping views I had at the Westin.

My floor also seemed extremely noisy, as soon as I attempted to go to bed - I was left wondering if someone was actually coming into my room several times throughout the evening (not, the type of restful evening I'd imagined before an early Saturday race).

I'm from So CA so each time a door opened and slammed I thought we were having an earthquake. Not peaceful.
average) but slightly above average from the norm.

Great soaking tub (which I should have used), decent shower, and a good amount of room with sufficient lighting.

In addition, just earlier this month I was in a different city for a different race and the close attention that was provided to those staying there running in the marathon was really great.
The room itself was ok, not very spacious. The king size mattress was ok but certainly not the most comfy compared to many other wonderful hotels I've had the pleasure of staying at.

The bathroom was slightly above average (not Vegas Bellagio Penthouse above

This hotel however, paid no different attention to registered runners which stood out to me since I had just been at a hotel that did.

They also had no fresh water or snacks available in the lobby for guest.

The convenience of checking in and printing my boarding pass from the lobby was helpful.

Overall, it was an ok experience but I wouldn't rebook in the future.

I stayed here for a night during a work trip to Seattle. On previous trips to Seattle, I'd stayed at the kimpton and w. The grand hyatt definitely beat the other places I've stayed. The bathroom was incredibly spacious and on par with what you'd come to expect from the four seasons and ritz.

I also always appreciate free wifi which was not limiting to number of devices and actually very fast. I'll definitely push to stay here the next time I'm in town.

New year, new challenge. 150 reviews for 2015! Let's do this!

I don't review a lot of hotels (I think this might even be my first one). So Grand Hyatt should be considered lucky, they forced my hand here.

We came to Seattle for a 4 day weekend for the holidays/our 6th year anniversary (last anniversary before the wedding), and let's just say I am very happy with my selection. I chose the Grand Hyatt based on it being in the midst of downtown plus the best ratings of any hotel in the area. They still found a way to far exceed my expectations.

So let's see, I'm trying to decide if it's best to arrange this as a narrative or a laundry list. I think the list would be more efficient, because otherwise I will be here for a while just vomiting praise (that's not a good image, but it stays, screw it):

-The front desk staff was amazing. Very helpful and knowledgeable. In fact, all the staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful. We even encountered one gentleman who was exiting an elevator to the lobby as we were going in, and he went back into the elevator to push the floor button for us before leaving (who does that?!). I also had brief but very friendly conversations with the cleaning staff every time I encountered them.
-Hyatt Gold members get free Wifi (I won't spoil the Wifi password here, though it seems obvious in retrospect).
-Black out shutters in the room controlled by a switch on the wall
-Electronic "Do not disturb" signs, saves you from fumbling with the awkward door hangers
-The hotel was within walking distance of pretty much all downtown Seattle. Very convenient.
-A number of items were available for free upon request, including: baby shampoo, bath soap, razors, shaving cream, comb, cotton balls, deodorant, hair brush, laundry bag, lint mitt, hair spray, hand lotion, make up remover wipes, nail polish remover wipes, woolite, shoe horn, shower caps, shower gel, toothbrush, toothpaste, wine opener, coffee, tea, condiments for both, sewing kit, plus you could borrow slippers, free weights, phone/computer charger, curling iron, robe, yoga mat, and more. I've seen a number of these items at other hotels, but the list here just seemed super extensive.
-The gym (while not used by us) was spacious and very clean.
-Room service food was actually quite good (my fiancée very much enjoyed her steak). Also we asked for "extra ketchup" and they came up with something like 5 extra little glass bottles.
-Comfortable bed and large bathroom. No problems the entire trip with water temperature or pressure.
-It might have been the time of year we came, but the hotel itself seemed very vacant. There was never a line at the front desk and few other guests roaming around.
-Free 15 minute use of the computer in the lobby with 5 free printed pages, perfect for taking care of boarding passes.

Anything negative about the hotel? Well...no. I mean I could complain about the old man we encountered twice getting into the elevator on floor 14 with a bucket of ice and taking it up one floor, but that's not the hotel's fault, that's just a weird old guy.

Without question this will be my go to hotel for Seattle. Comfortable, friendly, and convenient. You win Grand Hyatt. First review of 2015 and a 5 star one at that. You have seen through my gruff exterior and found the grateful optimist beneath.

Would definitely come here again and would highly recommend it too everyone.
Without a doubt 5 stars all the way.

I'll start with the fact that i have a Hyatt card and love staying at Hyatt hotels. This hotel did not disappoint. Its in a great location, only minutes away from pike place market. I stayed on the 30th floor with a great view of the city and water. The bathroom is huge with a gorgeous shower and nice tub. The bed was comfortable and you can order more pillows if the ones on your bed are not to your liking.
The gym is pretty nice too and no one was in there so i pretty much had it to myself. They have a lot of weights, a few treadmills, bikes, and ellipticals.
One star off because I didn't think the food was great. not bad,.. but not great.

5 Stars!

The Grand Hyatt is perfectly situated in Downtown Seattle. Its close to the light rail that comes from the airport. and a few blocks from Pike Place Market. Its close to shopping and the city center monorail that takes you directly to the Space Needle and surrounding museums.

The service was friendly and accommodating. We were placed in a renovated room on the 27th floor with a view of the Space Needle and just across the hall from the Grand Club. My girlfriend and I were welcomed with an amazing amenity provided by the concierge, Molly, congratulating my girlfriend and I on our 3 year anniversary. The room was properly sized and had a large bathroom. I really enjoyed the double-headed shower.

The Grand Club was great for breakfast, though I feel the hot items could be switched up a bit more. They even offer Beecher's Flagship cheese, Delicious! We also returned to the Club in the early evening for some appetizers and to start off on the right foot with a few discounted drinks to loosen us up for the night ahead.The people running the club were very nice especially Alex who remembered my drink of choice.

Though I was injured at the time and couldn't utilize the gym, I did see it on my way to the steam room and jacuzzi.  It was large and had amazing equipment. I really wished I was able to use it, but the jacuzzi and steam room were very relaxing. Every time I went (in the morning) there was no one there so I had the whole place to myself.

Final thoughts: I can't imagine staying anywhere else when in the Emerald City!

We stayed here for our 10 year wedding anniversary and we could not have been happier.  We splurged for the water view and it was worth it.  The entire staff goes out of their way to make your stay perfect.  They are polite, engaging and overly helpful.  To top it off, we were sent a complimentary bottle of wine and upgraded to the complimentary breakfast/happy hour room!  Room service was fast and the room was whisper quiet-perfect!  Right in the heart of downtown-can't get better then the Grand Hyatt.  Thanks for the perfect stay!

I was very pleased with my recent stay at the Grand Hyatt Seattle. The hotel is in the heart of the city and is connected to a high end shopping mall. It's a short walk from Pike Place Market, outdoor retail shops, restaurants, Paramount Theater, Pioneer square, etc. They offer complimentary wi-fi and there's a Barnes and Nobles across the street for those who need to do some work. This place is a bit pricey, but well worth the convenience and service.
The room was well lit with nice wood details. The huge marbled bathroom comes with a shower, his and her sink and a tub. The bed was very comfortable and they offer other amenities such as an umbrella, robe, slippers and tv. I didn't get much of a view, because the hotel was surrounded by other high rises.
They also have a gym that accessible 24-hours, sauna and a hot tub. For a hotel gym, I was pretty impressed by their equipment and cleanliness.
As for parking, they have valet and garage parking. You can park in the streets if you're lucky enough to find space. This hotel is definitely my go-to whenever I plan on staying in Seattle.

I enjoyed every minute here.  Spacious hotel rooms and excellent service.  Fast check in and check out. Try to reserve the rooms on the 24th floor or higher for an awesome view overlooking the city.

There's a Ruth Chris inside the restaurant and it has reverse Happy Hour at 9pm in case you miss the 4-6:30pm one.

The hotel is located centrally close to shopping and the best restaurants.

I usually stay on the Eastside when I'm in the Emerald City but I made an exception last summer when I had some new tourist sights to explore

As the Grand Hyatt had a good deal on Expedia and it was close to Hertz's downtown location, I decided to give this hotel a whirl. It is in a great location within walking distance of virtually all tourist sights all the way up to Seattle Centre and the cool restaurants of Capitol Hill

There is shopping, food and entertainment of all sorts just around the hotel. I loved catching a midnight movie at the nearby multiplex and being able to stroll back to my bed

My room was very comfortable and clean in a corporate way. Air conditioning was welcome in the muggy conditions but I didn't succumb to paying for internet connection, I'm still mystified why the guests of higher end hotels put up with having to pay for internet access when cheaper hotels give it for free. The same goes for car parking - I only picked up my Hertz rental car after I had checked up

One other disappointment was the view from the vantage point of my 18th floor hotel room. I think um downtown industrial probably sums it best

They were good at holding onto my luggage after I had checked out on the last day

I would stay here again of the price is right

We stayed here NYE and it was a good experience. We stayed in a Deluxe King Room with a beautiful view of Elliott Bay. Friendly staff. Convenient location.

The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was huge with a great bathtub.

My only complaint is that the dresser with the TV on it had a layer of dust on top. If they didn't dust the dresser it makes me wonder what else wasn't cleaned.

In spite of this, I would certainly be back!

Self-park for 24 hours is $30 which is pretty standard for city hotel parking.

When booking my NYE celebration I decided we were going to spend the night downtown - better safe than sorry right!?  Anyhow, when it came time to chose a hotel, I went with the Hyatt for three reasons -

1. They had availability for NYE
2. The location was perfect
3. The price was right

Valet parking: (which I think is around $40 with your hotel stay) was a breeze.  

Check in: We got there a little after check in time (3pm) and while the lobby was crowded the staff working the desk was super efficient.  I don't think we waited more than 5 mins to check in.  The front desk gal was SUPER nice as well - she seemed happy to be there and was happy to welcome guests for the night.

The room: The room was great - a nice big bathroom with a soaking tub (separate from the shower), a view of Mt. Baker, and a king sized bed.  The only downfall here is our blackout shades didn't work which we didn't realize until we were trying to go to bed so sadly we were up NYD when the sun came up.  HINT: Check your shades!

I would also like to add the room was SPOTLESS when we checked in.

Location: This hotel is right near the Paramount theater which means you have PRIME (read easy) access to pretty much all of downtown.  It's also in a safer part of town so we didn't feel uncomfortable walking around after the sun went down.

If I were to spend the night in downtown Seattle again, this is where I would stay.  Hands down... as long as the price was right.

This review is for the The Glenlivet Guardians event hosted by the Grand Hyatt last weekend.  When we entered the hotel lobby, we knew we were in for a treat.  They had a gathering space set up exclusively for our event with a convention room that opened up to reveal dark wood, soft seating and an interactive multimedia presentation led by Rick Edwards, a charming bearded whiskey expert; he is one of the first five Americans to be named a Master of Scotch.

The receiving area had bright displays detailing the history of The Glenlivet and all of the ways one can elevate their personal style and food pairing with this brand, in addition to generous samples.  The hostesses made us feel welcome from the point of entry to our departure, offering us hors d'oeuvres, tutorials and prizes.  They were elegant and inviting, as was the event itself.

Class act!  Fancy yet approachable.

Hotel room was good, a little smaller than I thought it was going to be but very nice never the less.
Staff is very nice, everyone that I spoke with was very polite.
24th floor, good view of the city/water.
Bed was firm but the pillows were soft and perfect.
There were no hairs in the bathroom when we arrived, but there might have been some when we left, sorry my bad.
Didn't drive so parking didn't bother me.
I tried to be quiet but there is no quiet way to close those doors.
Didn't turn on the TV, I have one of those at home so no need too.
Slept with the window open and the heater on, I don't do that at home.
Took a hot bath, why not, endless hot water!
Bathrobe didn't fit so I just went naked! (inside the room)
Never saw the gym, I have one of those here at home I don't use either.
Would I stay there again, yes.
Will I stay there again, maybe.

"We don't see things as they are,
We see them as we are."
--Anais Nin

When the hub and I first stayed here 8 years ago, I'd have given this place a solid 5 stars (I didn't know any better.) Now, it's more of a 3. When we first stayed here for our 5 year (dating) anniversary, we didn't have much of anything and flying to Seattle for a week long vacation was a huge splurge for us.

Location is pretty good. It's in downtown Seattle, close to Pike Place Market and shopping. The original (first in the U.S.) Nordstrom is about a block away. The hotel itself houses a few restaurants downstairs along with a Starbucks, would you expect any less with Seattle being its first home?

Service is good, not great. The rooms are the same as their customer service. Their beds were comfy enough, but I've definitely slept on better ;) We only booked this place the second time around for nostalgic purposes so it did its job. Lol

Top quality hotel in a perfect area for out of towners like myself. My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights of relaxation and site seeing. We have never been to The area before and weren't sure where to stay. We did a lot of research and decided on this place. We had a room on the 35th floor with a great view. When we checked in the staff couldn't have been better. They sent up a complimentary bottle of sparkling cider and truffles. All our needs were met or exceeded.
The location of this hotel is perfect for sightseeing. You can walk just about everywhere. The parking is a little expensive but that is to be expected in any downtown area. This hotel is in the perfect spot, far enough away from all the stinky smelly homeless but yet close enough to all the action.
If your looking for a good, clean, place to stay this is your spot.

Used award nights to stay here and had such a good time!  We found out later that this is where the 49ers stay when in town, cool!

Everyone was super friendly and although we just had a basic room, it was very nice.  The bathrooms are huge!

I would definitely consider this the next time I am in town as the location couldn't be any better, walking distance to pike place and the light rail to the airport!
