They are ok.  But not great.  The suites are spacious.  They are clean on the surface but it doesn't take much to uncover the grime of previous occupants, just lift a sofa cushion or check for stains on the cabinets, etc.  The worst thing was we reserved a crib.  I had to call three times for them to deliver it to our room at night.  The guy just dumped a play yard, NOT a crib in our room.  It was very uncomfortable, so we had to take a cushion off the sofa to use as a mattress in it.  However, the cleaning staff, were very friendly.  No one told us about carts we could use for our bags and generally the staff was pretty cold.  The rooms are modern, but fakey fakey.  Fake plants, everything is particleboard etc.  Stylish but on the cheap.  If you don't need so much space, I'd go someplace else.  Also, really low water pressure everywhere and the drains get clogged.  They do everything on the cheap here.

We loved this hotel! It was in an excellent location right next to the Convention Center. The decor was fabulous. Our room had a quaint kitchenette full stocked with dishes, utensils, full sized fridge, etc. The living room was tastefully furnished, a separate bathroom and bedroom. Both the living room and bedroom had it's own flat panel T.V. There was free breakfast complete with hot food, fresh Belgian waffles, Starbucks coffee, and dinner was even free from Mon-Fri! There was also a free shuttle to local grocery store, Pike Place, and many other local attractions. We were actually able to walk to Pike Place easily as well as other downtown locations. Very comfy and convenient place!!!

I wouldn't recommend this place if you want a good night's sleep. It's right on top of the freeway overpass. So even with the doors closed you hear the cars rushing underneath your room. Plus there's the Pike Street traffic which is a very busy street connecting downtown with Capitol Hill. Plus it's near a homeless park. Not dangerous, but not too comfortable walking around.

If this were anywhere else I would give it 4-5 stars. It's very clean, really big suite, almost like you're in an apartment. Easy to walk downtown - just a couple of blocks. Walking up hill just a little to go back to the hotel. Breakfast is decent, almost everything junk food you wanted to eat as a kid and weren't allowed to. Balcony - though WAY too loud to be outside. Nice staff. Internet access.

Two things - hot water ran out of after the shower, so no bath later on that day. Cigarette butt on the deck. Yuck.

Not great.  Not totally the hotels fault either, but still made a terrible impression.  We checked in for a long stay for business.  The first day checked in and got up to the room, sat down right away because I had to go to work soon and I wanted to eat a sandwich we brought with us.  This is at 2pm.  The fire alarms started going off and so the building evacuated.  We went to the front and saw that the water line had burst in the lobby.  It was the main hot water line to the building.  I was unfortunately late to work, and did not get to shower before going.  Throughout the day, I checked in with my girlfriend to see if the showers were working yet.  No water...  By 6pm the water was running but no hot water.  By the time I got home, she called the front desk for updates and tips on how to get the hot water to our room.  Just so you know, she called 4 times.  I came back from work at 10pm and decided to just go to the front desk myself and figure out the situation.  I asked the front desk if any of the other rooms were getting hot water (maybe the water would reach another portion of the building faster... we were at the opposite corner).  He said, "no I have not gotten any complaints, I will look into getting you a new room and call you once we find one tonight".  Okay well first my girlfriend called 4 times to complain and I never got the call ever about a new room.  Bummer... no showers for a whole weekend traveling.   I did not appreciate the lie either.

The hotel was kinda cheap looking, the door stoppers had been smashed through all of the doors, the hallways smelled like barf, and the bed was sub par.  I liked the kitchen though, makes living away from home easier.

The next morning the alarms went off again at 5am (for a real fire in an elevator shaft).  I was just ticked...  no "good" sleep, 2 nights in a row was enough for me.  We checked out.

The front staff WAS understanding though and they did do the right thing in the end.

What everyone else has listed is relatively correct. Very close to the Market and other downtown activities. A couple things not touched on is the staff, as they are not the most pleasant people I have ever dealt with in the service industry. They always answer your question but not in the most friendly manner. The cleaning of your room always seems a bit lacking. Food smeared on the coffee table when first arriving to our room. The drain in the bath tub was so clogged that by the end of the shower you are standing in 6 inches of water. Parking is $25 a day in addition to your room rate. On the bright side, the rooms are large, they do serve breakfast and dinner (low quality but free), free wi-fi, good rates for the area.

We enjoyed a very nice, very comfortable and very spacious suite in the executive wing, an apparent upgrade although the friendly staff made no mention of it. The suite, which was located over a courtyard, was very quiet despite the hotel's location on busy Pike street near I-5. The bath boasted a looong granite counter top at adult height (Hooray!) with two sinks, each with a good mirror. Unfortunately, the too-short light bar was located between the sinks, so although we had plenty of light I had to move to Lana's sink to shave the other side of my face. Worse, the obviously expensive designer faucets were very hard to adjust. We did not try the jetted tub but the shower worked just fine. The king bed was very comfy. Two large closets were located in the bedroom and these had mirrored doors. There was a third closet in the bathroom and a fourth in the kitchen. The kitchen, with a second granite counter top and serving bar, was equipped with a full size refrigerator, a two burner range, a microwave, a dishwasher and, of course, dishware and utensils. There were two flatscreen TV's, one in the living room and another in the bedroom. An initial problem with the heat was quickly addressed by the engineer. Breakfast was included in the rate. The waffles and turkey sausages were good. So was the coffee; but the tea was -- Lipton? Oh, dear! The mixed fruit was poor and the OJ just OK. Homewood provides trays for their guests' breakfast ware and utensils. This is a big step up from other hotel buffet breakfasts which typically require three trips between the food and a table. Homewood definitely will be our hotel for future trips to Seattle.

What is there to say? This place is awesome. Suites, kitchen, pullout couch, huge beds. Flat screen tv, local cable and free wifi! Free coffee, tea, and receptions (Mon-Thur). There's a shuttle with multiple drop off and pick up points. Very convenient for when you want to go to Salumi and stadiums.

I stayed here the week of Thanksgiving and during some of the worst weather they've seen this time of year in Seattle. Throughout the ordeal, the staff was welcoming, warm and helpful. I had not stayed here previously, but am a Hilton Diamond member due to work travel. They upgraded me to a wonderful room with fireplace on the top floor. It was the size of a small city apartment, cozy, clean and comfortable. The maid service was excellent and unobtrusive as I sat doing email while they cleaned. The facility is newish, very clean and well maintained. I'd stay here again in a second. Easy walking all over downtown, Pike Place and great shopping. No complaints here!

I booked this hotel directly through the Hilton website and got a fantastically cheap rate for paying in advance. I'm a Hilton HHonors member, so I was upgraded to a suite which was quite swell considering we were going to be spending 4 nights there. The decor of the hotel was pretty modern and the bed was comfortable. A couple of things here were a little off.. The 6th floor frequently smelled like what I can only describe as what resembled a blend of raw sewage and gasoline, which was mildly appalling. Luckily I didn't spend a whole lot of time in the hallway, so whatever. On the other hand, the breakfast buffet contained a plentiful assortment of breakfast foods, such as: eggs, french toast, breakfast meats, fresh fruit, and ..steamed rice (?). Yeah, I didn't get it either. Location was convenient - would definitely stay here again!

We stayed at this hotel on the way north to Vancouver and we could not have been more pleased. We arrived early due to our flight schedule, but they did not bat an eye and got us right into our room, which was clean, comfortable with all of the amenities we could want. The location was perfect for all of the activities we wanted. On our way south we stayed at the other Homewood on Western Ave and what a disaster! Pike Street Homewood is the best location, best service, and best value for the money. The free breakfasts and dinners we perfect for fast and furious site seeing. Anytime we are in Seattle, this is where we are staying!

Not bad, this.

Two big-ass LCD tv's. A decently comfy king size bed. More hotel room space than anyone could possibly need, a kitchenette and even a balcony....all at a room rate thats typically $100 less than the primary Hilton brand property in the city.

This place loses points with me for, poor coffee and marginal showers.

Homewood earns kudos on the $40 fixed fee town car service to the airport and the ultra-super-insanely friendly desk staff....oh, and its proximity to some cool stuff.

i have to say i'm quite impressed with this property.  i'm booked here for the next week for work, and i feel like i'm living it up in seattle.  the hotel seems to be modern, and recently built.  these suites are like gorgeous apartments one would die for in a major city.  they're spacious and nicely decorated, with a cozy feel.

breakfast is complimentary as is beer and wine paired with a light dinner monday through thursday. if you don't care for the food, you can certainly make your own dishes in your suite's kitchen.  the staff are all warm and friendly, and the location couldn't be better and central to seattle's main attractions.

i feel like i'm spoiled being housed here for work.  i would even consider staying here for a leisure holiday.

I loved the my stay here. It's newly renovated so everything looks brand new. We booked a comfy, cozy, roomy 1 bedroom king bed suite.

The living room was a nice size, with a huge window with a great view of the city and a balcony. The couch was a pullout, so convenient if you're looking to share your room. A nice plus...a fireplace! Peaceful and warm - just what you'd like to come 'home' to after a cold day walking around downtown. =)

The kitchenette had all the essentials - fridge, microwave, dishwasher, utensils...and it was all CLEAN. It was great to be able to stock our fridge with yum yum leftovers, snacks and drinks. If you're like me, a clean bathroom is a big giant plus in hotels. Everything looked new and cute.

The decor throughout the hotel and in the hotel room was very pleasant.

I only gave this place 4 stars because of how close it is to the freeway. When we opened the door to the balcony, it was quite noisy. When it was shut, it was fine though -- I didn't hear much noise at all.

If you're planning on visiting Seattle (love this city!) and staying in the downtown area, I highly recommend Homewood Suites on Pike Street.

Even thought we recently moved to Fremont, I will ALWAYS have my extra guests stay here (if they don't want to stay with us that is).

The room was impeccable. Two bottles of water waiting on us when we got in parched from travel. Comfy bed, full sized appliances and kitchen. Anything you could need on travel (wine bottler opener!).

The front desk was VERY helpful and advised us on the best places to scout for real estate (we were shopping for our new home after our relocation).

The breakfast is delicious and the free dinner with beer and wine is just shocking for what we paid ($100 a night!?!??!?!). Lots of little perks an ammenities that almost put the King of Hilton chains to shame: The Conrad.

They also provide a free shuttle to take you to any downtown spots you need to get to. Although its really in the heart of it all and you can walk anywhere.

And can I just say I always appreciate a set of nice robes to relax in :)

Not sure where they find their staff but either they are all heavily medicated on happy meds or they have amazing attitudes.  I stay at a lot of hotels and their customer service far exceeds the Ritz chain, especially the valet parking guys. Free breakfasts and dinners (includes beer and wine) are a nice add and makes this a great value (though with all the amazing restaurants in Seattle, what they serve in the evening is food not cuisine).  Rooms are nice though nothing fantastic.  Great location for walking to all the sights of Seattle including Pike Place Market, shopping, the Space Needle, etc.   In room Wi-Fi is pretty weak/slow though works well in the lobby.  Had the bottles of water and free cookies in the room.

Location: 5+ stars- You can take a walk down Pike St (to the famous market and lots of other shopping along the way) or a stroll uphill to the Capital Hill neighborhood (for great dining and nightlife).

Accommodations: 5 stars- frig, sink, microwave, dishwasher, and stovetop in every room.  Spacious suites with a separate bedroom.  

Amenities: 5+ stars- buffet breakfast (including make your own belgium waffles), buffet dinner (Mon-Thurs) with beer and wine included, and decent workout room.

Staff: 5 stars- the front desk is very friendly and helpful.  They will know your name if you stay there long enough.  Also, a driver (shuttle van) is conveniently  available to take you downtown to the market!

Overall, great for long-term stays.  It is clean, modern, and comfortable.  Take my word for it...We stayed here for almost 4 months due to a job-relocation to Seattle.

This was a GREAT place to stay during a conference!  While everyone else spent $300 per night, plus $29 a day for internet access, my husband and I booked a room here for a fraction of that price with internet and breakfast and dinner included! Sure, if your boss is paying for your conference, who cares right?  But if you are self employed and need to maintain professional contacts and continuing education, price matters and that is who this place is great for. Sure, it was a slightly longer walk to the convention center (8 minutes vs 5 minutes), but for the price, there is no comparison!

The rooms are clean and spacious! Full kitchen, and a little dining table!  The bed was so comfortable and the linens and pillows were super plush!  The bathroom was roomy, and the tub was actually big enough to soak in--Japanese o-furo style! Woo-hoo!!

There is a washer and dryer on every other floor, and the dryer actually works in ONE cycle! They have soap and dryer sheets for sale at a reasonable price at the little shop in the lobby! There is a decent work out room and a business center to print out tickets, etc. There are even free to use umbrellas at the entrance for the notorious daily Seattle drizzle!

This is not a big-ritzy glamourous costs-as-much-as-you-fear-it-will cookie cutter conference hotel. It is a smart place, with great value, and comfortable sleep, while looking good!  It is the power pump of conference hotels.

This newly renovated property is only corporate by name.  The minute you walk in, it looks more like a boutique hotel property - adorable, modern, and borderline eccletic.

The suite was well appointed complete with kitchenette.   The bedroom was a touch tight with two queen beds in there, but we were all still comfortable.

The breakfast buffet isn't anything to write home about.  But there are plenty of places in the area to grab something to eat anyway.

Great location if you're in town for business that takes you to the Seattle Convention Center. It's walking distance to most everything downtown.  It's a decent walk down to the Public Market and the Waterfront, but you won't notice it as there's so much to see on the way.

I would definitely stay here again!

This is the newer of the two downtown homewood suites.  It is on the 'far' side of the freeway from downtown, but a short walk.  It has a very nice modern vibe to it, and is one of my favorite homewood suites to stay at.  Also, a quick walk across the freeway overpass (about 5 minutes) gets you to a very nice shopping and tourist district.  I have stayed here many times for both business and pleasure with my family (2 kids), and have been happy all times.

This place could have been five stars. Should have been. I had a great weekend in Seattle stayin' here.

But a few significant flaws keeps this place from being perfect. But first, the good things: great location, so an easy stroll to Barney's for that 40% off designer sale (who just happened to have a coveted item on sale in my size...weekend off to a good start). Plus, numerous Starbucks locations nearby for that good sellout coffee.

The space. I mean, it's not five star luxury nice, but it's like affordable prefab condo nice, know what I mean? Clean, spacious, modern. Pricelined the shit out of this place for $60 a night, and seriously, I could live here for like a few weeks at a time if I had to. Easy. Big bathroom? check. Office desk w/ free wifi? check. Stocked kitchenette with free popcorn?? check, (more on this later). King bed in separate bedroom cove? with large windows and views of downtown? check check. check.

Ok, so off to a bangin' start, but then the initial shock and awe couldn't hide some probs. Like the shower, slow drain. very slow drain. 2 minute showers or you're standing in a puddle. It was 30-40 degrees all day all night. I was robbed of 20 minute steaming hot showers. And balconies with no viable entries from your room? LIke yea, we got a balcony for you, but you can't get on it. Great. That woulda been great being able to light the bleezie, i mean cig on that balcony while gazing into the skyline. Oh well.

Ok, but you know what? I had a great night at Homewood. Accomodates special visitors really well with the king size bed and plush pillows, know what im sayin? ;-). And wall mounted LCD with complimentary but ghetto dvd setup? Yea, almost got it all covered. Oh what? free popcorn?? Like they read my mind man, like they read my damn mind.

Needless to say, my holiday weekend in Seattle turned out great. Would I stay here again? Gat dayam right I would. Just remember to priceline...

4.5 stars.  I had a huge room (1 queen size bed suite) that had a kitchen (sink, dishwasher, microwave, stove range, full size fridge and cooking/eating supplies), desk and couch area, a huge bathroom and walk-in closet.  The service was excellent as well.  The concierge was very helpful in answering all of my questions and helping me.  And the complementary breakfast, fitness rooms and laundry service were nice to have for amenities.  For my 8 day stay, I would say this place was a wonderful home away from home.  I will stay here again and I will most likely try out other Homewood Suites in other cities that I travel to.

I just got home from a 6 night stay at Homewood Suites. It was such a wondeful experience. The location was great, very close to everything. The central locale was so helpful to find our way around the city. We got to see and experience many things due to the easy accessibility of our hotel being near the bus lines, light rail and monorail systems. Overall, I would totally recommend this hotel to anyone traveling with friends and family to Seattle. The staff were so pleasant and helpful!!

Great beds and amenities are perfect. The free breakfast exceeded my expectations. They even upgraded our room! Will stay here again when we come back to Seattle.  I will, however, stay away from the ice cream snacks. One small ice cream bar was $5!!! It was half the size of a regular one.

Worst hotel experience EVER.
As we checked into our room we sat down and immediately my friend noticed droplets dripping down on her head. So we called customer service and they said they would send  someone right away....2 hours later a guy shows up and starts looking out the window. THE LEAK IS IN THE CEILING!!! He also starts asking why there's a leak when it's not raining outside??? MAYBE BECAUSE THE PIPE MIGHT HAVE BURST. So then he says he's going to call someone else cause he can't figure it out. My friends and I end up getting frustrated and leave to go for dinner. By fluke we end up coming back to put food back in the fridge and are welcomed by HUGE HOLE IN THE WALL!!! We notice that there is mold and call reception right away, they say there is nothing that they can do as the whole hotel is booked up. For some odd reason the weekend was really busy as there was some sort of convention going on and we couldn't find another hotel at any other places. So we all huddled in the bedroom hoping we wouldn't be exposed to the mold!!!
They had a good breakfast- and really good coffee. Their level of customer service is not the best. I even emailed them and told them what happened- no follow up! Nothing!!
Will never go back here!!!
It's been months, and I have not heard anything.

We stayed at Homewood Suites back in 2008, so this review is a bit delayed, but that doesn't mean I've forgotten the experience.

A few highlights:

Free (tasty!) dinner during the week.
Free microbrews and wine with dinner. This part was a little tough to believe.
Full-sized kitchen (dishwasher, fridge, sink, microwave).
Comfy beds
Couches have a fold-out bed
Great views

Basically, Homewood Suites is everything a hotel should be, but most aren't.

The only bad part?
The timing of our stay was during the 08 Presidential campaign. When we were eating breakfast, CNN was showing John McCain unveiling Sarah Palin onto the world. Ugh.

Great place to stay in Seattle. It's within walking distance of the major tourist center, but far enough away to be out of the mess. The room was clean and well-appointed. I really loved the full kitchen. It was a bit noisy on the freeway side of the building, but I can sleep soundly through regular traffic noise, so it wasn't an issue.

The free breakfast was decent. We didn't try the free dinner, but it smelled good when we were going up the elevator. Free WiFi, AND free shuttle back to the Amtrak.

We didn't encounter a single disappointment during our stay at Homewood Suites. The Hilton Honors deal we wrangled on the room rate made our stay even better.

Stayed here this past weekend and had great fun in Seattle.  This Homewood Suites is very convenient it is walkable distance to downtown shopping and the Pikes Place Market.  If you do not feel like walking they also have a shuttle that can take you to and from near by establishments and tourist spots.  Just ask the front desk and they will point out where they can take you.  Your driver Scott is very helpful to point out the hot spots to hit up.  Nichole at the front desk is also very helpful, but I can not say the same for the rest of the front desk.

The one thing I love about Homewood Suites is that the rooms come with a full equipped kitchen.  We where fortunate on Sunday morning to make omelets for breakfast in our room, with locally grown products bought in Pikes Place Market.  The bathtubs are very deep and hard to get in and out but make sense since they have water jets in case you want to use it as a jacuzzi.

Next visit to Seattle I will definitely stay at the Homewood Suites.

This place is all about location, location, location.  It is not in the heart of downtown Seattle but it is right on the edge of it so you can still walk to most places a tourist or a business traveler would need.  My suite was actually bigger than most Homewood Suites I have been to or since, it had a small balcony, the living room even had a small fireplace too.  Everything was clean and newish.

If you have a lot of Hilton Honor points from your business travels and want to take your family to Seattle, spend your points here because it is a lot family friendly here than say the Doubletree or Grand Hyatt down the street.

We stayed in a room on the 7th floor corner. Found a great winter special on their site, and couldn't resist. They have comp breakfast and on weekdays, dinner as well. Unfortunately, I stayed on the weekend. The bed was comfy, we had a balcony, jetted tub. Only thing is it sounded like a jet engine. (not familiar with this tub, maybe its normal operation?) My one complaint is that parking (like everywhere in Seattle) is 32.00 per night, and has to be valet parked...UGH!! This for the most part was the most disappointing. Reception was VERY friendly, and very attentive. I would give 5 stars if it wasn't for the parking situation. The price, btw, was very good for being close to downtown and food is walking distance away. With all the amenities, this is a great value.

I booked this hotel through Priceline's Name Your Price.  I was very delighted that it was near the entire downtown area and just a few blocks away from Pike Place.  

Being that it was my first time in Seattle, the hotel service and staff was extremely accommodating to me and greeted me with so much hospitality.  They gave me great suggestions, helped me out the entire stay, and catered to my needs.  When I would leave and come back to the hotel, they'd stop me in my trails to just chat about how my stay was going.  

The room that I got had a nice view of Seattle.  I was very pleased of the rooms, the complimentary products (Neutrogena), the granite kitchen counters, and the bed.  The complimentary Wi-Fi connection was really speedy and reliable as well.  I was also able to print papers out for free at their business center located in their lobby --that was nice since I had to check my flight in and print out the tickets to return home.

I think the only downside to the hotel were their bed sheets.  The quality felt a bit cheap and rough.

I would definitely stay here again but only at a discounted price --this isn't a five star hotel...  It's good enough and up to par in  regards to the location.

I.  Love.  Homewood Suites.

Breakfast.  Dinner-ish.  Decent WiFi.  Suites with efficiencies.  Gorgeous.  Also, in this Homewood, the exercise room is actually pretty decent, dumbbells up to 50 lbs so you can stay in shape more or less.  I didn't catch the billiards room but hey, next time right?

It's in walking distance of nearly everything a visitor might like.  Go uphill, makes downhill a treat after a night at Elysian.

Also, to find the entrance, drive reaaaaallll   sloooooowwww on Pike.  It's a small driveway, you'll fly past it if you don't slow down at the corner.

Definitely a return visit in the cards.

Stayed here eight years ago with excellent results.  A return visit in June suggested that little has been updated in that time.  Yes it's looking a little tired.  Our room, a king one bedroom suite, had only one dresser, which simply could not accommodate our family's clothes.  The bedroom had no dresser, but a large closet certainly helped.  Unfortunately, the sliding door was constantly derailing, and eventually fell apart.  The smoke alarm dangled from the ceiling by its cord, the double-sided tape having long ago given up.  The bathroom had a tiny sink with absolutely no counter space for personal items.  Since it was an accessible room with a zero clearance shower, the addition of one of those bowed shower curtain rods meant that the bathroom would flood every time we showered.

Outside noise is a real issue at this hotel.  We were on the 4th floor on the east side, which meant that Boren Avenue was directly outside our window.  Older windows that could open -and never really close all the way - meant trucks, motorcycles and cars were a constant throughout the night.

But it was not all bad.  Staff was uniformly nice and helpful.  The breakfasts were a cut above those you'd find at a Hampton or elsewhere.  Dinners were a nice touch, but pretty limited.  The location just above I-5 was slightly removed from the action, but not so far that just about everything was walking distance.  We even walked from Safeco Field.  There are some nice restaurants, such as Tango, nearby by.  And of course the price was right: considerably less than the and hotels within a block or two.  And that was for a one bedroom suite, not just a standard hotel room.

Stayed here for a quick business trip last fall, and just got around to writing a review. It was a very comfortable and enjoyable stay. Great value for the $ and would absolutely recommend, especially for families or business travelers who want a little extra space.
Location: It's right on Pike St., a little walk to Pike Place Market area, but not bad -especially going down - it's a little more work going up. But all in all, it's walking distance to everything.
Staff: was very friendly and helpful; check-in and check out were very easy.
Room: Had a 1-bdrm-suite and it was perfect - spacious, comfy beds and pillows, nice to have the living room and kitchenette (w/ coffee, tea and popcorn).
Free dinner/breakfast: It was restaurant-week in Seattle, and had to experience that, so didn't take part in the free light dinner, but stopped by for a free glass of wine, and the free breakfast in the morning was very convenient.
Overall, a very good stay and I would definitely recommend.

Whomever is in charge of the internet for this hotel should be looking for another job.  I've stayed all over the world for business, and this is one of the worst.  It took the front desk almost 30 minutes to check me in, because their internet was so slow.  Now I'm in my room, trying to work on some business but I can't, I'm writing a yelp review on how horrible this internet is, which this review took almost 10 minutes just to get this page to load.  This is sad, considering I'm downtown Seattle, not some place in the middle of the jungle. I expect much more from Hilton.....

Great location downtown on Pike street. Just a few blocks down to shops and a few more down to Pike Place market. Walk up the hill into the "U Hill" neighborhood.  You can get parking for $2 per hour on the street in front of the hotel. Free after 8pm and on Sundays.  Great tiny little suites with kitchens. One of the cheapest hotels downtown. Free wi-fi and free breakfast when we stayed there. Kitty corner is the Spanish restaurant "Tango" and a great coffee shop just up the street.

The downsides are: the noise from the freeway can be heard from inside your hotel suite, so be sure to ask for a room on the other side of the building. Our room could have used good cleaning.

We stayed here at the end of February '12.

The reception staff were wonderful and cheery.  I was their Guest of the Day which was nice!
The room we had was a little bigger, it had a living room too as well as a kitchenette.  It was nice and clean, no problems there.
The only issue I did have was that we were overlooked on our 2nd night so we came back after a long day to find our room had not been made up.  We weren't messy at all, but we needed new towels and coffee supplies.  I had to call down to reception who were apologetic and sent someone up immediately with coffee supplies (we didn't ask for new towels) which came in a bag and there were A LOT of them.  It kept us in sugar for the rest of our holiday!  This is the reason I gave the place 3 stars.  I paid enough money to stay there and expected a little service in return.  Apart from that, no problems.
The hotel is a good location, up a hill which is tiring when you have suitcases.  If you get the metro from the airport, I would recommend a taxi from the metro.
Other than that, it's 5 blocks away from the monorail which takes you to the EMP and 10 blocks from Pike Street Market.  Also, a short walk to the bus station if you need it (we did as we had to get to Everett).

We stayed here two nights in November 2012. We were completely pleased with out stay. It exceeded our expectation. The suite on the 7th floor was BIG with full amenities, two big screen TVs, Wi-Fi, and a sweeping view of Seattle. It is within walking distance to the Pike Place Market (9 blocks)

The breakfast is always excellent at Homewood Suite, and during our stay it also offered light dinner, which was an unexpected treat.

The valet parking is $30 per night. keep this in mind if you drive a car.

Overall, we consider it an excellent value in Seattle.

Amateur hour all the way here.  

No room service, but they do offer to pick up food at local restaurants for you.  Maid service happens at odd hours in the day, even if you request it to be done earlier.  The shower left me feeling wet but not clean.  Very poorly stocked and meager shelf of things to buy in the lobby (ie. toiletries, snacks, water etc).  

It was really quite expensive for what I got (something close to $200 a night for a regular room), and I don't think I will be going here again the next time I visit Seattle.

The rooms and facilities were adequate and as expected from a Homewood Suites. However, service was definitely subpar. My experience was peppered with poor service mishaps the entire time.

First off they never offerred me two bottles of water and there were no pepperidge farm cookies in the room. So much for being a loyal diamond guest.

Then when I realized I forgot my toothpaste, front desk informed me they had none on the property. Plenty of Ben and Jerry's but no toothpaste. I asked her where to go and she directed me to a convenience store that was closed. Being lost at 11pm in a hobo ridden city is not fun.

When I returned home I realized I left some pants in the closet. I understand thats my fault but when I talked to the housekeeping manager Renata (sp) the next day, she took down my credit card info and address and insured me it would be shipped out immediately. Seven days pass by and I don't receive a confirmation for the shipment or my pants. Called about four times today before someone acknowledged me. I go to find out it hasn't even been sent yet. No apology or any sense of urgency in her voice.

Plus side is it wasn't isolated incidences of poor service. It was consistently bad all around which is better than nothing I suppose.

Really is the best hotel in Seattle! Homewood Suites provided a large room, free internet, and a working kitchen with fridge. And the best part is that they are walking distance to all the fun in downtown.

Really the best deal in the city, will proudly return to Homewood Seattle in the future.

Phone didn't work the entire time I was there. Did not go over well when waiting for all my friends and colleagues to call. We missed our dinner, drinks and bonding time with them as they thought we were "busy." The girl at the front did tell us where they had gone, though, and I felt like she was our personal assistant. What a nice lady. I'm only sorry that I didn't get her name!

We missed our wake-up call for our very early morning conference, too. This was not a good thing to have happened at all. Luckily, our internal clocks saved us.

Some black hair was in the bathroom welcoming me upon my arrival. Some slime was left on the outside of the microwave, too. yucky yuck.

So why the four stars? The exceptional staff, service, beds, and overall room condition more than made up for the little things that we missed. The girl at the front was so nice, and held our bags for us without a problem. We did not have to wait around for the staff to retrieve them, either, which is usually the case in such a busy hotel.

The breakfast was the best that I've ever had at a hotel, but maybe that's because I made my own amazing waffle at the waffle station.  I can't even believe that it was complimentary. It would have been nice to have been told about the free happy hour that we missed, too, as I also heard that was good.

The location couldn't have been any better to the conference center, either, which is a definitive positive for those unsure about where to stay when in town for business reasons.

For the very positive service I experienced here, I would overlook the obvious mishaps and give this place another go.

Had a wonderful stay. Great room with kitchenette, comfy bed, very nice. Even better were the friendly, helpful, efficient staff. They never seemed to miss an opportunity to give that little extra touch of customer service. The location (close to theatre, convention center, transit center, downtown) can't be beat in our opinion and the price was right. We will definitely make this our #1 choice in Seattle.

Nice suites with decent size bedroom and bath and separate living room  and kitchen. Beds were not as uncomfortable as other hotels we have been in.  Lots of closet space.  

Breakfast  is decent with a few daily items i..e eggs, sausage, hashbrowns, fruit, waffles, bagels etc.  Nightly reception is awesome:  Beer, wine, ice tea or juice along with a few rotating items. However it is only Monday-Thursday night.  We were here 2 nights and had shrimp, beef skewers, spicy potato wedges, soup, cookies, chips.  

They also have a pool, whirlpool, pool table

Valet service is lacking during peak times. They only have 1 person and will not let you self-park in their garage due to liability.

Stayed here a few nights with my sister and nephew while visiting Seattle. I've stayed in other hotels downtown, but wanted the extra room that the Homewood provides. You can definitely stay here and visit Seattle's highlights without having to rent a car, which for me is always a plus.

Daily breakfast and the M-Th manager's reception are bonuses - the food is actually fairly good and they have adequate staff to make sure that things are refilled as needed.

Staff and housekeeping staff were friendly and efficient. Had a very pleasant stay and would stay here again.

One warning - the hotel is located at the top of downtown and the bottom of Capitol Hill, so if you are walking, just know that the last couple of blocks are a bit steep.

Comfortable Sleepy-time over the loud I-5 in Seattle!  (I love the irony!)

SITREP

When I hit Seattle, this is my first hotel of choice.  And I'm not just talking about the hotel-chain, but I mean, THIS VERY HOTEL.

I truly am a frugal traveler when I go to Seattle.  More than any other city outside of my home-base of Sacramento, I try to find the least expensive modes of transportation, I try to find the less costly options in terms of food and incidentals, and I really make extreme efforts to keep my costs as low as possible.  Not because Seattle isn't a city worth blowing your wad on.  But I am primarily in Seattle to visit my mom.  

And like many GUILT-leveraged trips to see the matriarch, these are made because you HAVE TO SEE the maternal-unit, irrespective of whether you can actually AFFORD the trip or not.  So Seatac is THE destination-airport where I use all of my Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards free-round trip tickets.  And Homewood Suites - for the same reasons - is where I blow all of my Hilton Honors points.  

SET-UP

And talk about a comfortable situation!  Like the Homewood Suites that I stay at for work in Oakland, Orange County and Riverside (hence the accumulation of Hilton Honors points that I can use for travel outside California to Seattle), this Homewood Suites is like a premier version of all of the others.  

THE PARTICULARS

*  It's called a "suite" for a reason, and that's because you get a full-sized kitchen and dining room with enough for six place settings makes it wonderful to do your OWN entertaining without having to go out (which I did for dinner twice when up there for a week).

*  And speaking of dinner, they have a FREE DINNER.  And FREE DRINKS, and by free drinks, I mean free wine and local microbrews!  AND you can take all of this back to your room, which, as previously mentioned, there is plenty of room with a nice dining room to use, and great view on the patio that you can also dine on and with a great view of the Seattle cityscape.

* I love the King sized bed!  It's huge!  (We ALL could fit on it!)  ;^D

THE LOWDOWN

When in Seattle, this is the place to stay and call your "home-base" while in Jet City.

Well, my stay started off all right; I was to be here for 3 nights total under 2 reservations (1 for 1 night and the other for 2 nights - Unfortunately, Hilton books each type of reservation (ie. award, paid, etc,) separately.  When I checked in and the clerk stated it was 1 night, I explained that there was another "linked" reservation for 2 additional nights.  "Oh yeah!" she found it. I asked will I need to go to the front desk and get a new key and she said no.  

Well, she was correct - my key worked. However, upon returning to my room (6pm), everything was gone.  I immediately called down in a panic (wouldn't you?).  I was told that I checked out and they had my stuff.  I informed them that I did not check out.  "Oh yeah - you have another reservation!"  Duh.  She explained that it was my fault that I did not inform them -- really? my fault?!  I am not gonna lie.  I hung up the phone and went back to the front desk.  At this point I lost it.  I mean, I had left my passport, my wallet, cash, everything in my room and it was GONE!

I spoke to the manager and the housekeeping manager.  I asked WHY? no one bothered to call me? Didnt they find it strange that ALL of my belongings would be left in the room.  "Oh yeah we were gonna do that shortly"  They said I was making a scene - perhaps I was.  Perhaps I had a right to be upset.  They assured me everything was safe.  

Well, they finally bring up the luggage and I go through it.  Well, first of all, the water, sodas, and wine I left in the fridge were gone.  My razor was gone.  My toothbrush had been tossed in with the clean clothes and there was wet spots on a shirt (later white toothpaste stain).  Most importantly, all my paperwork was trashed: business cards of contacts the previous day, menu prototypes we had been working on with notes, etc., and other paper work.  Basically, a half day's work gone.  They were sorry.  Again, I asked why one single phone call was beyond them and they said they were "gonna do it. [They] have a system."

I went down later to get some food and wine and manager grabs my shoulder to turn me around (a strict no-no when someone is furious at you) and tells me that I am "tense and upset."  Really?  I wonder why?  I told him how a single phone call earlier would have prevented all of this.  He wanted to discuss this and I told him it was not the time nor place.  I really wanted to be left alone.  He did offer to replace the water (the razor, coca cola and wine were on me) and some bonus points but that does not really replace lost items, time, and work.

What bothers me most about this incident is that it makes me think what would they do if I have been hurt or killed?  What it had been someone I loved?  When would they realize that something is not right with a room a full of personal effects and luggage.  Every minute counts and yet this team seems to not take guest safety and security seriously.  

As far as the rest of property is concerned: nice accommodations, free wi-fi, free breakfast (Get there BEFORE the end time as they start taking stuff away 15-20 early), free evening snacks (only Mon-Thr - there is a menu so they do not repeat often), clean rooms, spacious, and full kitchens to make your own dishes.

On a side note: Since my flight was not until late I had planned on asking them to hold my luggage so I can see a bit of the city but I will pass on that now; I just do not feel comfortable.

I seriously tempered myself not to give them a single star.  If this horrific mix up had not occurred, I would have probably given them 4 or 5 stars. I hope they read this and see that a single phone call could have changed a guest's experience in a very big way!

If you come to Seattle, this is where you need to stay. The prices are very affordable and I was so impressed with what was included as well as the services the staff provided. Let's start though with how perfect the location is! There is a little food mart attached to the hotel and lots of little places to grab drink close by. It's in down town and only 10 blocks from the water which makes it perfect for walking anywhere you need to go! Not only is the location great I was so impressed with how clean the rooms were and I loved that we had a kitchen. I would have to say the best part was that breakfast was included in our stay EVERYDAY which made me so happy! The food was actually really good. Dinners are free Monday - Thursday which meant we could only eat there one night but they were still extremely good. Especially for being free! I'm always a little nervous travelling to other cities - what if our hotel is disgusting! But I have to say that I was so impressed with everything here and I would recommend it to anyone!

The hotel is clean and comfortable, check in was quick and painless.  The breakfast and light dinner was nice.  Unfortunately parking is valet only and will run about 38 a night this is told ahead of time so I knew what I was getting into, but still seems a bit much.  As far as close to the tourist attractions....we'll walking to them isn't so bad about 15 - 20 mins, on your way back, after walking all day that climb back up to the hotel is going to  feel like your climbing Everest!

Few points:
1. Very close to convention center which worked perfect for me. Perfect location in downtown Seattle.
2. Came with my wife and son got a room with a leaving room + a crib for my son. Room had a nice kitchen with a good microwave + refrigerator, dishwasher, Plates utensils and glasses. Perfect!
3. Everyone we met working in this hotel were very nice and helpful.
4. Amazing breakfast + ok dinners for free.

To sum it up. This hotel is for practical families. If your looking for glimmer than its not for you.
If you are looking for a convenient place with good atmosphere to stay in downtown Seattle, youll be pressed to find a better place.

We were looking forward to staying at this hotel because the Homewood Suites in Reno was so nice when we stayed there.  They took us up to a suite on the 8th floor.  It smelled strongly of a chemical like Tilex.  In the bedroom, there was mold around the patio door.  On the patio, the roof was dipping very low from what looked like water damage.  Likewise, the patio floor had big water stains.  The pots and pans in the kitchen smelled awful.  We were so disgusted that they would give us or anybody that room.  I called down and asked for a new room.  The desk clerk asked us to wait in the room until she could find another room.  After waiting about 10 minutes, we were about to go downstairs because the fumes were too strong when a very nice woman from the desk (not the one on the phone) came up with our bags.  We explained the situation, and she went downstairs with us.  They took us to another room.  It was much better than the previous room.  However, I'll have to say that I don't think they are putting in the maintenance on the hotel to keep it up to a high standard.  The room still smelled musty.  Everytime we went out and came back, my friend would get very congested.  As we were leaving the hotel, we saw somebody in the hotel lobby with the air ducts open...

There were nice things to say about the hotel.  Everybody at the hotel was very nice.  The woman who took us downstairs and settled our room situation actually brought up a bottle of wine and glasses to apologize for the inconvenience.  There was free wifi for one day.  Otherwise, you pay.  Also, they have a nice full breakfast every morning.  On Monday through Thursday, they offer a light dinner which was plenty for us.  The location was about 10 blocks uphill from Pikes Place Market.  It was a good location though there were quite a few homeless people lingering about.  Overall, if this hotel puts in some TLC to improve the air quality and other issues we encountered, it would have been a much better experience.

great walking location to many great attractions

valet staff is amazing

front desk staff is ok but nothing special and they dont even have a paper for the weekends. its ok but id consider it a value choice.

store next door is lame because they charge $0.50 more if you dont spend over $10 which may or may not be legal.

3-night Friday-Monday morning stay.

Nice suite with kitchen, good-sized bathroom, free wifi in room and free Continental Breakfast in the mornings.
Friendly staff.

The location wasn't good for us, but this was our fault.
We should have researched it better.
It wasn't as close to the waterfront as we thought it would be.
We didn't rent a car and had to hoof it and/ or rely on public transportation.
The walk to and fro is more for heartier souls than us.  It's located on what's known as First Hill.  Yup, it was a bit of an uphill jaunt from the metro station and Pike Place.
This would be perfect if you had business at the Convention Center though.  Or a car.

We do thank them for letting us check in early since our room was ready.
But, after we unloaded everything and used the bathroom, we discovered that it was not a smoking room like we requested.
I went down to ask where their smoking areas were (a corner in the parking garage).
A different clerk was at the desk and she graciously offered to move us to another suite (which would have been bigger) at the same price.  That was very nice of her!
But, I declined since we had already cootied up the room.
It would be no big deal for me to go to the parking garage spot.  I've cut down on ciggies anyways.
I do appreciate her gesture though!

Overall, it was a nice place to rest our weary heads.

One note:
I guess this would be useful info for out-of-state folks.
The tax situation here is that we got charged both a state and city tax which added about $30 a night to our bill.
Also a tourism assessment fee of $2 for each night.
We didn't rent a car, but that would have been an extra daily garage fee too if we had.

My fiance and I stayed here last month for six nights before an Alaskan cruise. He had stayed at this hotel in the past, being in town for a conference at the convention center  up the street. I had never been to Seattle, so I went with my fiance's recommendation for the hotel. It turned out to be decently close to most things, although the hotel is on a fairly steep hill on the edge of First Hill/Capital HIll neighborhood. It was approximately 10 blocks to Pike Place Market; 12 blocks to the waterfront; 5 blocks to the light rail. We walked pretty much everywhere the entire week we were there, and definitely got a workout.

Okay, the hotel itself was fine. Not spectacular, but okay. I was surprised that our room (which wasn't a suite) didn't have a mini-fridge in it...I don't know if that's common to Homewood Suites or what, but I was expecting a mini-fridge and was disappointed. I needed to keep a couple of things in the fridge, and wound up leaving them on the desk. Not the end of the world...I was just glad the place had air conditioning, especially since we were in Seattle during a mid-August heat wave.

The staff was okay. I thought it odd that the chick who checked us in told us we'd gotten a really good rate. And that the folks who'd checked in before us had paid more than $100 more a night for their room. Isn't that the sort of thing that the front desk should keep private? If not, they should....

We weren't able to get into our room immediately, but they stowed our luggage and called me when the room was ready (we were up the road in Cap Hill).

I did like the fact that they cater to business travelers and offer not only a complimentary breakfast, but a weekday dinner option. We didn't take advantage of the dinners, but did eat breakfast. It was nice that there was quite a variety and there were hot options.

The front desk staff did call a cab for us when we checked out to go to the port.

Overall, this was a good centrally located hotel. We were able to get to the places we needed to get to without too much trouble. I would stay there again, but make sure I book a suite so I could have access to a refrigerator.

Ok, so as much as I have traveled I should have know to check. BUT when a hotel has 'Suites" in its name, you'd think there would be at least a microwave in the room. Nope.

The room (and bathroom) was tiny. The distance between the end of the bed and the wall was no more than a foot and a half with the TV mounted on the wall at the foot of the bed so things seemed kind of cramped.

The people were nice enough. Although I am a bit surprised that the walking directions to the train to the airport were about three blocks off (no it really was not me!).

The breakfast was just ok although I would say that oatmeal should not be so very watery. The dinner they served was actually pretty good.

Given its proximity to places I need to be, I would probably go back again (as I am wedded to Hilton). BUT I will ask more questions and be more attentive.

Don't stay here!!!!! At $37/day to valet, no one there to help with your bags, we had to unload all of our luggage onto the wet ground after a 10 hour drive, this was the last thing I wanted to do. Then after we are carrying all bags without any help, luckily there was a cart, we entered our floor just to have the foulest odor in the entire hallway! Ughhh. Room then smelled like mold, I call down to complain and the receptionist acted like I was annoying her and that she was completely going out of her way to find us a room that wouldn't make us sick. I told her I would just find another hotel to stay in and she changed her tune, at almost $200/night I did not appreciate this kind of lack in service or courtesy. The other rooms which they tried to switch us to smelled of cigarettes on a non smoking floor and the third smelled of mold again!!! We have up, with only 2 days in the city what a waste of a half day ;( they people showing us the rooms and the maintenance guy who wanted to shampoo the floor was very nice though. This place should not represent Hilton!! It's disgusting, the only +is the breakfast and that mediocre. Poorly understaffed, every time we call to get our car it's never ready, or they don't even bother to answer the phone to attempt to get it ready as they instructed us to do, I'm writing a letter to corporate.

LOVE this hotel - a stone's throw to the convention center, a really easy stroll to pike's place, and close to everything (shopping, great restaurants, public transportation, even a super great little family grocery store next door). the front desk is super friendly and helpful (they split our receipt up without any problems), the rooms are really clean, spacious, and quiet (ours even had a little patio area that led to a courtyard), wifi worked well, kitchen was convenient, and loved the complimentary afternoon snacks, evening dinner, and full breakfast.

Stayed here for 6 nights. We were very happy with our stay. Here's the rundown:

* convenient location ... we walked almost everywhere - to pike place market, to seattle public library, to seattle center, to dinner, to the monorail station & to the waterfront. it is uphill on the way home, but nothing the average healthy person can't handle.
* free breakfast ... yogurt, fruit, cereal, pastries, coffee, juice, 3 hot options (like eggs, sausage & potatoes). it worked really well to eat breakfast here with our toddler - saved us time & money YAY!
* our room was great ... clean and quiet. the full kitchen is great for leftovers and keeping milk for the little guy. i love having the bedroom and the living area separated by a door, so our toddler could have his own room at night. the bathroom was small but it worked. the bed was decent but not super comfortable. the hotel provided a crib that was actually the nicest hotel i have ever seen. we brought of our pack & play sheet for the crib just because that's how i roll, but they did provide a sheet and a baby blanket. one thing that i would have liked in the room was a mirror -- the only mirror was in the bathroom and after a shower that mirror was fogged up. an extra mirror would have been great when someone else was in the bathroom, too.
* the staff at the hotel was excellent. everyone we interacted with was nice from the front desk staff to housekeeping to the breakfast staff to maintenance.

We would stay here again, for sure.

I have to say that I was very pleasantly surprised by the hotel.

The hotel is located right on Pike Street, right next to the convention center.  Pike Place market is just a short walk away and pretty much everything else downtown as well.

The beds are comfy and I've become a big fan of the Hilton bedding.

The room was not too big, but that's ok, since you really only need to stay in your room to sleep.  I was expecting a suite, i.e. kitchenette, like some other Homewood Suites I've stayed in, but this room didn't have that.  Maybe other rooms did?

Breakfast was complimentary, as was Wifi and as an added bonus they offer free dinner from 5-7pm Mon-Thurs.

The valet parking costs were $32... eek, but I guess you have to pay that no matter where you are in downtown.  There was no option to self-park, though.

It's a nice place - including basic versions of breakfast and dinner (one entree, one side, one salad, cookies, wine, beer, coffee, water and lemonade) (mon - thurs) makes it convenient if you don't want to go out and aren't too particular.  
The pool and spa opened today (5/15) and while small, it is nice.  The pool is (slightly) heated.  It's a great location - downtown Seattle - but most of the way up a hill - so walking around very far is going to give you a good workout by the time you're back.
The rooms are clean - we are in a 1 BR suite - it's not spacious by any measure but it is comfortable and has all of the basics.

I stay here a lot and it's normally been a good place. It's clean and comfortable and reasonably priced. Beware the desk recommendations, though. I just overheard the desk clerk warmly and heartily recommend to a British family that she couldn't call a cab for them, but that she'd "be happy to arrange a Towncar, and it'll be cheaper than a taxi. It's a $45 flat rate." The place the family is going is a $10-12 cab ride. That's a shameful way to treat a guest, and especially a foreign visitor.

This place was okay.  The only reason I picked Homewood Suites when booking our trip was because they usually come with a small kitchenette, microwave & mini-fridge included.  However, for some reason, we were placed in a regular room and when I asked the guy at the front desk about it, he said it wasn't what we booked.  Weird.  Whatever.  I did read the other reviews prior to booking this place but I didn't think that a little hill would make much of a difference.  After trekking all over downtown Seattle by foot, that little hill seems more like a mountain.  Other than that, it was decent and includes free breakfast in the morning.  Would probably not stay there again if ever in Seattle.

This place gets an extra star for the convenient location, super-friendly staff, and nice decor, but between a room that hadn't been sufficiently cleaned, the hallways smelling like stale cigarette smoke, the cigarette smoke smell becoming noticeable in my room when people in other rooms were smoking, and pillows that were not full-sized for a queen-sized bed, I can't say I'd recommend this place unless location and full kitchen are critical.

The staff was very friendly when I explained that my room wasn't cleaned (it appeared that someone may have vomited in the bathroom sink and it didn't all go down the drain) and made several suggestions for a different room, and offered to give me a larger bed in place of the full kitchen. Valet parking was very convenient. I didn't get a chance to check out the breakfast as both mornings I was there I met friends in the city elsewhere.

I was a long term resident at the Homewood Suites from August until December and had a wonderful stay! The room I was in [802] had a great view [looking westward] and a wonderful balcony.

I can't say enough about how helpful the staff was at the Hotel. Chris, the night shift front desk was always helpful in whatever I needed. In fact the entire front desk staff [Christian, Chrisalyn, and the others] were great. The valets [Jason, Eddie, Chris and the others] were all a great group of guys as well! The cleaning staff as will has the food service staff were simply top notch!

As for the Hotel, it was always clean and well kept up. The location is great! Just on the edge of downtown and the start of First Hill gives you an excellent location for restaurants in either downtown or Capitol Hill! Great Tapas restaurant [Flamingo's] just up the street and well as a great local bar called Six Arms for an evening drink.

As far as safety...no issues. The hotel elevator requires a room key to select a floor thus preventing any unwanted guests from roaming the hallways. If you haven't been to downtown Seattle before, you will experience that there are a lot of beggars and pan-handlers. Seattle being a more liberal minded culture there is more tolerance for letting the less fortunate [of which have mental health issues...this is often obvious by their shouting and erratic behavior] roam the streets of the downtown area.

As far as the breakfast food offered at the hotel...pretty good. Good selection of always having a hot dish [eggs of some type along with breakfast meat and a starch] as well as cereal, yogurt, fresh fruit, and oat meal for the healthier choices. The food during the evenings [Monday thru Thursday] was pretty impressive. Always a salad available and local beer on tap along with a good variety of "comfort" food that can certainly suffice for dinner.

The only drawback I have to mention is the traffic noise; due to the fact that the hotel sits adjacent to Interstate 5. Being on the 8th floor and facing the west, it was quite noisy on my balcony or if I had the windows open. With the windows closed there was little noise, minus the occasional emergency vehicle passing by. But, you are in downtown Seattle so there will be traffic noise.

Lastly, during my several month stay I did encounter only one issue with my room. The issue was with the Television, but it was quickly corrected [replacing both television units] by the maintenance staff.

I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to stay in the downtown area or if you have an event to attend at the Convention Center...this is the place.

First time visit to Seattle. We stayed here for six nights in September.  Great location, close to bus terminal, monorail, shopping, movie theater , Pike Place Market and other attractions.  

The suite was very spacious and equipped with a full kitchen and two large TV's. The bed was comfortable.  The only problem we had was the water faucet in the bathroom.    The water was coming out like a spray instead of full force.  They sent a maintenance guy to inspect but left a message saying there was nothing wrong.   Well, we just had to get used to it, but did not like it.  We have never had this kind of issue in any other hotel.   The housekeeping was good most of time.   If there was anything missing they brought to us immediately.  

Good breakfast.  I personally liked having fresh fruit salad every morning.   We even had a dinner one night, brats with salad along with beer and wine.

Originally I searched for a downtown condo to stay in with my family so we could have a kitchen. Homewood Suites was that and much more for about the same price for many more amenities.

They offer a free breakfast that was pretty decent and the kids loved the sugary cereal that we don't have a home. They served an early dinner Mon-Thurs. but we never made it back in time to try their evening meal.

The room was great. We got a king bed with our own room and the two boys slept in the sleeper couch. I asked for a separate cotning meal.

We used their small pool and jacuzzi and my kids played video games (a la Donkey Kong) and pool.

Best of all, the hotel was in a great location for everything we needed just a short walk (10 min) away. Close to the Link train (the Link travels from SEATAC Airport to downtown and right in front of the baseball/football stadiums), Freeway Park, Pike's Market, Monorail (to Space Needle and museums), ferry to Bainbridge Island, busses, restaurants, Target, Nordstroms and nearby car rental locations (though you only really need one to go to the more far away places).

Public transportation is terrific in Seattle and we used several forms easily accessible from the hotel. I wish the front desk staff were more informed of how to get around that way (my smartphone was pretty helpful for this purpose). Front staff were very nice. Provided me with a sewing kit and razor that was very much needed.

We stayed at the Homewood Suites Pikes Place/Convention center property on 2/13/2015. We arrived after 6:00p.m. and was told that our room was not ready and we needed to wait 10 mins which was really 20+ mins. This didn't make sense since we arrived well over 2hrs after check in. We were told since our room wasnt ready, we were upgraded to a larger corner room. I said well as long as we are on one of the higher floors because of the traffic noise. I was told we were on the third floor and traffic noise wouldn't be a problem. That was so far from the truth. Even though we got off the elevator on the third floor we were only one floor up from street level. It was horribly noisy all night long. The sirens and cars kept me awake all night. The door to the patio was open when we came back to the room after attending a concert. We hadn't opened that door and it was very concerning as it wasn't that far up from the street. Sure didn't make my friend and I feel too safe. We also  encountered problems with the cleanliness of the room. There was a used bar of soap with body hair on it left in the shower. There was a used tampon in the garbage in the bathroom and the garbage under the kitchen sink wasn't emptied. The sheets on the bed were dirty and it was clear that the sheets had not been changed as there were body hairs in the bed. It was gross and very disgusting. On our way out to attend a concert I told the clerk about the dirty room and she she just shook her head and said sorry. No offer to have someone clean the room or move up to another room. She was too involved in whatever she was doing at the desk to give us 3 mins of her attention.   When we were checking out, I again brought up the problems with the room (which also included the dirty bed sheets)  to the front desk staff and didn't get much of an apology, instead they were rude and the girl just rolled her eyes and said "We took $20 off your bill."
But now I see that the Homewood Suites has a "Suite Assurance Guarantee® - if you are not completely satisfied, your night's stay is free" this was not offered to us which I think was completely wrong since their website clearly has it on your website. There also was a sign posted next to the front desk that I wished that I would have paid attention to. However, I was so tired and had a migraine when we checked out and wasn't thinking too clear at the time.
I will never stay at this location again. I have stayed at lower star rated hotels that were far nicer than this hotel.

Comfortable bed.  Clean and tidy. But such a noisy location! We had a "view" room---I wasn't impressed---tattoo parlor, overpasses, office
buildings.No mention was made of the $38 mandatory valet parking fee when we booked.  So many added taxes in Seattle!  What started out $150 ended up  $225 .

Overall a good Hilton property. Been here twice now. Decent location but be advised you are up at the top of the hill in Pike Street. But only a short walk down to Pike Place and all the waterfront places. The room was very clean, great service but be aware that parking a car is $34 a night which is about twice what they should charge.

This isn't the ritz & doesn't pretend to be. It's a great value for traveling families, and an even better set-up than Embassy Suites. We are a family of 4, and love the layout of 2 rooms. This Homewood Suites was truly a great value.

Plusses are:
- free buffet dinner (we're talking nuggets & fries, but it's included)
- free breakfast
- free wi-fi
- Kitchenette - larger & more useable than Embassy Suites
- ice on every floor
- $5 cab ride to Pike Place or a 15 min walk

Cons:
- Our room was noisy. The hotel is on a hill so our 5th room balcony was just above roaring traffic
- Several lamps didn't work
- Towels were small & thin
- Pool was closed

All in all, we'd stay here again. It's not a romantic getaway type of place, but all those "free" items really work for our family of 4, and add a star for me. When traveling to Seattle with my husband, we stay at the Hyatt downtown. But this is a perfect family place with loads of flexible extras.

Was a bit expensive during fleet week plus the $38/night valet parking, but worth it for a two night stay.  Everyone very friendly and in walking distance of everything.

Everything in the area doubled in price during this time.

Comes also with free breakfast and dinners.

Recently stayed here on business for a couple of nights and really enjoyed the property.  I had a huge suite (#735) that was very comfortable.  I've stayed in Homewood Suites before, and they pretty much look the same (like all chains) but I would consider staying here for a personal visit, mainly because of the location.  It's about 10 blocks from Pike Market, so it's a fairly easy walk (kind of hilly though, so be prepared for that) and close to good shopping and restaurants.

Overall a good hotel with comfortable rooms, good service and decent free breakfast.  Just be prepared for the $32 valet parking fee if you bring a car (which is pretty standard for downtown hotels in Seattle).

This place absolutely blew my mind.

My company booked the hotel for my travels so I had no idea what I was getting into.  As soon as opened the door and walked into my room, my first impression was that the hallway (there's a hallway!?) was incredibly long.  Turns out there's a full kitchen, a living room with a wall mounted TV and two couches, a separate bedroom also with a wall mounted TV and a king size bed and sliding mirror closets, and a gigantic bathroom that's actually bigger than my entire apartment back home.

I was basically living by myself in a beautiful home meant for a family of four.

The hotel also serves free breakfast and dinner every day.  The quality of the food actually rivals many three star restaurants on yelp, so definitely try it out if you don't want to go outside, or if you're not someone who turns down free food.

This has been a great stay! Breakfast and dinner are complementary, staff was super friendly, workout room was nice, rooms very spacious! I appreciated that you had to use your room key in the elevator to go to the floors. That was a nice added security feature I don't see at many other hotels. Short 15 min walk to the waterfront and 5 min away from downtown. The free wi-fi was not very good though. Would stay here again!

Large hotel near Downtown and Pikes Place Market. The hotel room was clean and had a nice partial-view of the cityscape.  We were disappointed that our room did not have a full kitchen or mini refrigerator, however it wasn't a huge deal since we only stayed two nights.

A family friendly hotel with free breakfasts. Valet parking is $34 each night which we avoided by walking and taking the public metro to and from Sea-Tac Airport.

Excellent hotel.  Rooms were large with fridge.  Great location for downtown and convention center.  The breakfast was awesome.  Always healthy items like fresh fruit, oatmeal, cut up pineapple and melon.  Had several options of cereal, breads, and baggles plus a changing hot option that included sausage, egg, and cheese croissants and scrambled eggs.  The evening meals was nice Mon - Thurs.  It had Coors Light and a craft beer option from the NW and two wines to enjoy.  It had salad, cookies and a changing menu.  

Really enjoyed the hot tub outside, cool outside, but nice in the water.

We will be back.  Great hotel!

Stayed here for 3 days for medical purposes. Staff was without a doubt super friendly. Valet guys were awesome! Only thing was we parked/picked up our car most of the time but they were gracious enough to charge us for only one of the three days for parking. Upon check in our room was not ready but they were quick to find us a room on the 9th floor (highest floor). Super inconvenient that we had to take the elevator to the 8th floor, walk down a hallway then take another elevator to the 9th. There's a game room on the fifth floor but you have to walk to the end of the floor to access it. The free breakfast and light dinners were a nice plus. We left a very expensive custom made wool shawl behind and despite calling a leaving messages with front desk and house keeping we have not heard back. Waiting to hear back... Giving them a couple of days and if not I will be going back in person. Hopefully theyre honest enough to give it back.

I needed a last minute room to accommodate my husband and I, our two toddlers and dog.  We booked off of hotels.com . The hotel staff was so kind and set us up in a suite on the top floor.  It is huge!  Two rooms, two tvs, full kitchen (including dishwasher!), balcony and fireplace. Very, VERY nice hotel with every thoughtful amenity.
Free WI fi, breakfast,  laundry facilities and there is a dog park across the street!!
The front desk staff, valet, maintenence, concierge - everyone was above and beyond.   They were very welcoming and friendly to ALL of us (our pup included).
I'd give the staff 10 stars if I could.

During GeekGirlCon 2013, this was one of our participating hotels. Like many of our attendees, I stayed here because I was needed on site quite often. It was a short walk to the convention centre and I saved money because of the fridge/microwave inside our suite.

A key card is needed to access the floors so don't forget it when you hit up the complimentary breakfast bar in the morning. The bar was well stocked with eggs plus a breakfast meat and a bevy of breads, cold cereals, fruit, and yoghurts.

Some reviews mentioned a lot of noise but we didn't find it so. The fireplace was a nice touch and made the room cozy, especially when unwinding after a long day of working at the convention.

With such comfortable beds and good service, we will definitely consider staying here during PAX and again for GeekGirlCon.

This location was very easy to get to from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport via public transportation. Just hop on the Light Rail to the Westlake Station & then it's just a few blocks to the hotel.

Normally when I'm searching for hotels to stay, I tend to lean towards the ones that offer complimentary breakfast. Who doesn't love free breakfast! There's free dinner also, but we didn't check that out.

The staffs were very friendly & informative. If you arrive very late to the hotel, you have to use your room key to get in. Also, you need your room key when you get onto the elevator.

Our room had a microwave and full size fridge. That's always a plus when you bring back leftovers! We stayed here for 3 nights & I have no complaints. We also went to the outdoor pool & game room just to check it out. I would stay here again.

Located right next to the Convention Center. The hotel was a nice walk to Pike Place Market and was a half hour stroll to the Space Needle.

This has been our home away from home a few times when we were in the city.
Check out my pics from our last stay. (see below)

Here are the reasons I LOVE THIS PLACE:

Our room had a full kitchen in it. All plates, utensils, pots/pans, plastic BPA free containers for leftovers, towels...everything...

They offer a full breakfast which we don't eat most items but to have extra fruit and juices to what we stocked in the kitchen was nice.

Every night they had dinner and wine/beer service in the lobby kitchen area. We mostly go to dinner but to have a fresh salad bar and some random wedges etc to snack on or just have a light dinner was very nice.

On the dinner schedule that was magnet onto the fridge in our room said that they offered veggie burgers! I was not really surprised because it's Seattle but wow! I called the front desk to ask if they had eggs or dairy and they transferred me to the kitchen! When in touch with the kitchen the man said that "oh no worries we serve Hilary's!" WHAT?! :))))))))

I love how our suite had a large balcony. The sound from the door to the balcony was very soundproof so it was quiet outside and of course LOUD out :)

They cleaned up dishes and ran the dishwasher everyday.

The first day we arrived we made a grocery list and the next day at lunch all of our grocery list was put away and picked up. Yes, they went to Whole Foods for us.

I love the lobby and it's decorated soo cute. And the room decor was ok. The views outside were very nice so who cares. It's new, plain and clean.

The front desk people. They are AMAZING. I have never experienced this kind of professional manner unless it's from an all inclusive Butler situation. They really bend over backwards.

The last stay the bellman held our luggage while we ran to Cafe Flore before heading to the airport and when we returned he remembered us by name when we returned. He then offered us there car service and they took us to the airport!!!! Now that is service.

Tip these people, double tip these people, triple tip these people...I know we did. They deserve it.

This hotel is located in a pretty great location. Very close to the downtown, right next to the convention center, and a short monorail ride to the Space Needle.

As for the rooms they were simple but clean. They didn't have all the energy savings bells and whistles that some of the more modern hotels in the area have.

The other bonus point is the free hot dinner they serve every night. Free booze too!

I didn't have many interactions with the staff, but they seemed friendly.

There is a pretty significant homeless population in the area, so just keep an eye out if walking home late at night.

We take a family week end in Seattle just before Christmas.  For many years, we've stayed at two other places but about 5 years ago, we switched to the Homewood. Why?

The suites configuration works the best for the 3 of us, the continental breakfast is very complete and the staff stays ahead of large week end crowds(many families and some youth sports teams who hit the week end buffet like  piranha), the suite's kitchen is handy for late night snacks, keeping wine chilled, snacks and morning coffee,a deep jetted bath tub, the location is a short crawl from the center of shopping and dining, the staff is very friendly and helpful, and we get a decent rate directly or via a travel site.

A great hotel for business travelers during the week and families on the week end.  What more could one ask??

Homewood Suites was an awesome place to stay on my short visit to headquarters. It's conveniently located between the Downtown core and Capitol Hill. Check-in was straightforward. The hotel room was very clean every day, and the best part was that it was quiet the entire time. Housekeeping never woke me up in the morning, like some other hotels that I've stayed at in the area.

The hotel room includes a kitchen with a fridge, sink, dishwasher, microwave, cutlery, cups and dishes. I only used the fridge while I was there. I really like that I can keep food in the fridge for snacks. The living area has a flat-screen TV, but so does the bed room. The bathroom included french-milled bath soaps, including mini bottles of lotion, shampoo, and conditioner from Neutrogena. The A/C kept me cool during the evenings, though housekeeping leaves the window open all afternoon. The wifi was really good. I didn't have problems with the speed, though only one device can connect (it refused to let me connect an additional device for the same room).

The hotel offers free continental breakfast from 7:00am-9:30am, which was hit or miss. The first day I was there, the food wasn't that good (the hash browns were too hard), but the food was really good the other days afterward. Breakfast includes hot options, usually eggs and sausage, but also includes things like milk and cereal and bagels. Beverages include hot coffee, orange juice, tea, etc. There is also free dinner from 5:00pm-7:00pm from Monday through Thursday. I was never around to try it.

Overall, I was impressed with my stay at Homewood Suites. I will gladly stay here again.

Food options for breakfast and dinner were awful at best.

The front desk staff was unpleasant to terrible at times without even so much as a smile on their faces 99% of the time.

Wifi was sketchy requiring a new sign on at random times.

We've stayed at half a dozen Homewoods that were 100 times better than this, so we know they can do better.

Nice and clean.   Located close to the Convention center and downtown, this hotel is very nice.   The suites are huge and there's plenty of room to hang out in the living room...bedroom and bathroom are not very large but decent size.    Got a nice room with a balcony, facing the city.   Nice.

Breakfast was very tasty...crispy and crunchy hash brown patties, sausage links and scrambled eggs...   The fruit was a bit bland (bananas and apples).    

Gym is kind of small, about 4-5 machines, but ...heck...when in WA state...get outdoors....it's so beautiful and green !!

Staff is friendly and very organized.   I would stay here again !

Parking is valet only.     $34/day at the time I write this.

5-10 people were doing heroine 50 yards in front of the hotel. There is a tent city with 4 tents and users bicycle in throughout the day. The front desk was notified and hopefully this will be resolved before your stay. Otherwise, this is a great hotel near local restaurants, coffee shops and the monorail to the Space Needle ($2.25 1-way). The 5th floor pool cabana with free arcade and a pool table was nice if you are still working on your man cave. The Starbucks Reserve is right up the street as well.

Without a doubt this is the worst Hilton property I have ever stayed at. It started with having to use the room keycard to use the elevator, I could see that security feature being needed if the facility was in a super seedy area of town, but this property is not. Once on the 4th floor the hallway was musty smelling, dull and kinda dingy, not at all like the clean, fresh well lit Hilton properties I'm am accustomed to. Inside the room the suite was a non suite just a tiny musty single room.

I don't mean to sound like I should be entitled, but i had to ask for my complimentary waters and never did get offered a comped snack. Usually at Homewood Suites the bottled water and snacks are in the room.

Even though this stay wasn't horrid, it in no way measured up to the normal Hilton experience.

I'll start by saying I didn't want to stay here.  My husband's conference was in a glitzier hotel that was more to my liking.  But with my quest to be objective, here goes:

Pluses:
-- Roomy; one gets a bedroom, sitting room and full kitchen for the same price as a regular room elsewhere.
-- Comfortable. I slept well.
-- Hot breakfast.  Nothing made-to-order, but you won't go hungry.
-- Dinner during the week!  With wine!!  If you're on a budget this place is for you.  (Not haute cuisine, but if you like brats, tortellini, things like that .. you'll be happy.)
-- The staff is very nice.

Minuses:
-- The first room we were in, was off the highway and very noisy.  The drawers and cupboards were flung open, the couch cushions overturned.  There was the faint odor of insecticide.  "Did you fumigate?" I asked the clerk.  "No!" he replied somewhat convincingly.
-- Our second room was as far from the elevator as you can get.  Someone had obviously smoked in there.
-- The maids did a good job on daily visits, but between guests???  Hmm... why were there dirty socks in the closet?  Oh -- and nobody checked the balcony.  Someone left his or her water bottle outside.  (Management, if you read this:  room 739.)
-- There was no WIFI in our room.  We were so far from the router, it worked maybe 10% of the time.  Grrr....

THE GOOD:
- Great accommodations at this Homewood Suites. They allow you to choose your room in advance while doing an e-Checkin online, which is awesome.
- I was offered a Gold Elite upgrade to a king suite, which was really nice and made my stay extra enjoyable.
- The breakfasts in the morning are decent, and they switch up the hot foods a bit from day to day.
- I loved how there was always complimentary hot tea, coffee, and water available downstairs. I feel like the value of this should not be underestimated.
- Great location. There's an abundance of great eateries in the immediate vicinity.

THE BAD:
- Valet pickup always entailed a wait, even when calling in advance from your room. We were always told there would be a 10 minute-ish wait, but then there would be another 5-10 minute wait afterwards in addition.
- One day during our weekend stay, the housekeeping skipped over our room. We had left at 11AM and come back at 2PM to find that it was not made up. We called the front desk and requested housekeeping. We left again and came back at 7PM and found it was still not made up. We called the front desk again and they said housekeeping had left for the day, and instead offered to bring up towels/supplies for us, which we accepted.

Overall, I'd happily come back to stay here again next time I visit Seattle.
