    This is a review for Oliver's Lounge, which is inside the hotel. My friends and I go there regularly, and we always walk away happy. Drinks are a tad bit on the pricey side (average drink is about $9.50), but the taste and quality have ALWAYS been top notch. They make the best Margarita (they call theirs the Oliverita) I have had. Overall score: 9.5/10. The only reason they don't get a perfect 10 is because of the slightly high prices. Other than that, I give them 10/10.

    Make sure to try Seattle's best martini in the bar at the ground floor, Oliver's. This is a great place to stay with a prime downtown location.

    Our family and wedding guests spent a long weekend at this lovely hotel and it was perfect. All of the staff are fabulous and extremely helpful. Whenever we had a question, someone took the time to find the answer. We held a bridal Tea Party at the hotel and it was lovely! The rooms were very comfortable and nice (great comfortable mattresses). Centrally located right in the heart of the city and we loved the history of the hotel and that it is locally owned. Oliver's Martini Bar was a perfect end to a fantastic wedding day!

    Wonderfully charming historic hotel located in downtown Seattle. I'll never stay anywhere else! This boutique hotel came highly recommended by a colleague in California who has stayed here numerous times. The Mayflower absolutely exceeded my expectations. I am so glad that the hotel I had planned to stay at for a big conference at the Washington State Convention Center was booked. The Mayflower Park Hotel was less expensive and far superior (we stayed four nights). The ambience in the lobby and upper sitting room by the fireplace is comfortably elegant and inviting. All the staff, from the moment we entered, were extremely professional, kind, and knowledgeable.  The concierges are very helpful. Jane did our booking for the Seattle 2-Hour Van Tour (great tour, by the way) and Andy secured for us a fantastic museum package for the Gauguin Exhibit at the Seattle Art Museum. They made my birthday very, very special, even delivering a small box of chocolates to our room with a birthday card signed by numerous staff. Katya at the front desk is lovely and the doormen are courteous and have friendly smiles. Our deluxe room on the 9th floor had 2 bathrooms and a view of the Space Needle with free wifi. Oliver's on the main floor is perfect for happy hour drinks and hors d'oeuvres in the late afternoon. The West Center Shopping Mall is connected to the hotel as is the Monorail station to the Space Needle and the Link Light Railway Tunnel Station to the Sea-Tac Airport, 35 minutes away. All the Seattle highlights are within walking distance -- even the Space Needle, to which we walked for dinner at the Needle's Sky Restaurant (about a 20 minute walk). The Mayflower Park Hotel made our first visit to Seattle a dream. We can't wait to return.

    I recently stayed at the Mayflower Park with several girlfirends on a girls trip. We loved this hotel. It has charm and ambiance.The rooms were clean and nicely decorated. The staff was super friendly and helpful. It is located within an easy walk to Pikes Market, shopping and the ferry.  The bar downstairs has a lively happy hour and the restaurant below the hotel, Andaluca, offers a great selection of tapas and an amazing sangria! Try the duck patties--you wont be disappointed! We all give this hotel a big thumbs up!!

    Stayed here for a few nights with my husband this past summer.  Has a charming traditional decor and is reasonably priced.  I try not to stay at chain hotels which is how we ended up here.  Our room was quite small, but the queen bed was comfortable, the bathroom was roomy and wireless internet was included in the price of the room so no extra charges which is great.  It was nice to have control of our own thermostat in the room.  The location of the Mayflower Park is convenient to downtown and the touristy things.  It could use a little something something to make it more unique, but no real complaints.  The concierge and valet folks were very friendly.  The only problem that we encountered was that one of their two elevators was broken while we were there and we were staying on the top floor--we often had to wait 5 min to get up to our room or to go downstairs.  Not really big deal, but kind of irritating.  The elevator repair guy was funny though.  ;)

    We went on a travel search engine, named our price and booked a queen room for half the price!  Our stay was on 11/01/10 for 2 nites.  When I rang the hotel to ask questions, a very friendly staff answered all my inquiries and gave me helpful information including the very affordable Light Rail to/from the airport.  Upon arrival, we were given a a complimentary upgrade to their deluxe 2 queens w/2 bathrooms (w/partial view of Space Needle)!  The staff was consistently friendly & helpful during our entire stay.  We loved the central location of the hotel.  A very good deal for a very nice boutique hotel.  We look forward to our stay here during our next trip to Seattle!

    Fun place! Quaint and glamorous, beautifully appointed. Professional staff all very courteous. The classic room was cheap ($109), small, but very comfy. The location was amazing! Right across from Macys and so close to all the great shopping and eating. The bar downstairs was superb--the best in Seattle maybe. Very classic. Do not go there if you are looking for a party or loud music. It is a great date bar or just for us married couples who like to be able to talk to each other over a fine cocktail. The server was awesome and she gave us some great late-night eating advice. We did go to the restaurant--it was closed since it was a Monday night.

    I would stay here time and time again.

    The location for this hotel was really great. Its a few blocks from Pike Place and right in downtown where all the shopping is. The rooms are decent sized and the parking was half off the weekend we stayed so that was a added plus.

    Love this Hotel, they believe in old school customer service. My wife and I had our wedding at the hotel with 85 guest. Andrew was awesome, he helped us plan our wedding and made sure we felt comfortable the whole time. He made our wedding night the best night to remember, even with Torch light parade going on, we got free parking. The hotel suite was clean and comfortable, you could not find a better hotel for food, drinks and entertaining, they are close to all the shopping centers and night life. Love this little hotel

    Stayed here for two nights last weekend and loved it! The staff is awesome, the hotel is smack dab in the middle of downtown, our room was small but very clean, and the hotel bar serves the most amazing peanuts. In fact, we might have to go back just for the nuts! Okay, not just for the nuts, but we've definitely found our go to hotel when we're in Seattle. Our go to nuts too.

    my friend and i stayed here after we rolled the dice on a hotwire find.  small, boutique hotel in the heart of downtown seattle.  the room was small but had all essentials and was clean.  housekeeping was excellent and got our rooms cleaned efficiently.  this is the perfect location... it's one block from the lightrail, surrounded by the shopping district (right across from the macy's), and a couple blocks from a bunch of tom douglas' restaurants.

    i would definitely stay here again when i'm in seattle for its rate and location.

    Our overnight stay was great at this lovely hotel.  The front desk staff were helpful, we loved the lobby especially the one on the mezzanine level...like being in our own living room.  And the convenience of having a connected entryway to the mall and monorail to Space Needle!   The hotel is centrally located and there are many store and malls within walking distance.  It's only a 7 minute walk to Pike Place Market and about a 15 minute drive to Pier 91 which is where our cruise ship was docked.  

    As well the rooms are lovely with comfy beds.  NOTE:  We reserved two rooms, one for me and hubby, the other for my mother and our son.  We requested an early check in for one room so that we would have a place to rest in case mom got tired early.  The room we got was smallish with a King bed and had a tiny bathroom!  An "oversized" person would have a tight squeeze getting into the shower which was blocked by the sink.  Another thing we noticed is that there is a small glass shelf above the sink making washing your face a bit of a challenge.  I actually kept bumping the top of my forehead on the shelf.  Since it was only overnight, we didn't really mind having such a small room plus the bed was very comfortable and the place was charming and cozy.  

    We got my mother and our son's room later that day and they got a HUGE room twice the size of ours with two Queen's.  Their bathroom was larger than ours as well.  It was great because we had my sister and her family travelling with us and all eight of us fit pretty comfortably in this large room.  

    Overall, we all enjoyed our overnight stay and would definitely stay here again!

    I really enjoyed my stay at the Mayflower. We got a great deal on Hotels.com for $99/night. Best part about this hotel is the PERFECT location! Pike's Place market is just a few blocks away, a five minute walk. The Space Needle is also within walking distance, just a bit longer of a walk, about 15 - 20 minutes or so. The hotel is older and has an elegant vintage style, which I really liked. The room was clean and bigger than I expected. I had heard  stories of the tiny rooms in the downtown area and this one was a nice surprise. We had a standard queen room and it was definitely big enough for the two of us and not as small as I had imagined. Another big plus was the free Wi-Fi. Not every hotel offers this (most make you pay for it) and this was very nice to have!!! The staff is very friendly. Only 2 negatives: our toilet got clogged twice during our 4 night stay, which has never happened to me at a hotel before. Perhaps the toilets are a little older than most? Also, the queen bed was a little small; it felt more like a double bed. It wasn't as comfortable as I would have liked. Oh, back to location, the Westlake shopping center which has many major department stores (Nordstrom, Macy's, etc), restaurants and even a movie theater, is right next-door! You can also take the light rail (westlake station) to and from the airport for $2.25 per person. You save $50 not having to take a cab!! Definitely recommend the Mayflower for anyone who wants to stay right in the heart of downtown!!

    This place is old school thriving on character, service and quality.

    This said you go to the Mayflower for one thing only in my opinion. : COCKTAILS, COCKTAILS, COCKTAILS!!!!

    This Hotel does the most consistent cocktails in Seattle.
    Their sidecars, their white chocolate martini's even their Cosmo's are mouth wateringly great.

    Try their Champagne cocktails as a treat. Crisp, refreshing yet surprisingly alcoholic.

    Seriously, this is a great place to meet up with friends and have a quiet drink or go straight after a movie for a drink and a discussion.

    This is such a nice hotel!!! WOW I didn't realize how nice looking the hotel is until I got there.  I was really skeptical because it's not a big name down in the Southwest.  I was there for a weekend getaway and wanted to see what the Pacific Northwest is all about when it's not raining.  I fell in love with this hotel and its surrounding.  Pretty much I step outside and I'm in downtown.  If I didn't need to drive to Portland, I wouldn't have rented a car because everything's within walking distance.  The bed is comfortable, the decoration is nice and sophisticate.  The lighting is low so you can sleep in and won't be disturbed by what's going on outside.  The parking is valet- so be prepared to have ones and fives.  If you expect a huge room then this is not the place for you, the room size is adequate, not too small but I wouldn't say it's big.  It is best for honeymooners and business trips.  I hope to come back to this hotel one day soon.

    It is within walking distance to the fish market as well as the shopping center.

    We decided at the last minute to go to Seattle for 4th of July & stayed here, what a delight! There is NO better location for visiting Seattle than this. The staff were wonderful & very helpful from the doormen, to concierge to front desk. The bar, Olivers, WOW, the guys pour amazing cocktails, LemonDrop martini !! The huge tip is to eat there, the menu is great, nicely priced & had one of the best burgers w/steak frys we've had. Lovely lobby w/comfy seating areas & FREE wifi in the hotel while most charge extra.  So convenient to all the attractions, next door to Westlake Ctr with it's great food court & transportation hub.
    It's a great find, we got super rates from Expedia for this trip! Highly recommended!!

    My boyfriend and I make weekend trips down to Seattle and we found this neat little hotel!
    The staff are top notch and very approachable. Do not hesitate to ask them any questions. They always have an answer for you but if they don't they will find out for you. You will never be left guessing. We found the valet and desk service equally fantastic.
    We stayed in a basic room and it was lovely. Everything smelled fresh and clean and we were provided with everything we needed. A funky perk about the room we were in was that every 6 inches on the baseboard there was an electrical outlet. This feature was in every section of our room and we found it quite useful. You could plug in anything anywhere! No hassling looking for hidden outlets or having to plug in something at an awkward location.
    The valet service where very understanding and careful with our brand new car and we found it in the exact same condition as we had left it.
    Overall we had a great experience.

    My Lady and I booked 2-nights at the Mayflower Park for a quick weekend trip in Seattle and we were very happy with this hotel. Honestly I was rather shocked at how good it was considering it was one of the cheaper hotels on Expedia given the location and amenities offered. Before you look at a Sheraton, Red Lion, or some other big-chain lodgings take a close look at the Mayflower Park.

    Great downtown location at the corner of E. Olive and 4th Ave (attached to the Westlake shopping center), the Mayflower Park is a very attractive and classy hotel (one of only 2 registered Historic Hotels in Washington State) with fantastic service. From the minute we pulled up to the parking valet until we hopped in our car to leave I was completely impressed by the friendly, helpful, personal service we received.  After checking in the friendly gentleman at the front desk called and left a message to ensure we were happy with the room - wonderful touch!

    Our room was cozy, and tastefully styled (loved the brass decorative side table next to the lounge seat) - and there was no extra charge for our decent city view from the 11th floor. The bed was really comfy, though I suspect it was a Full rather than a Queen (as advertised) and the pillows were a bit too soft for my tastes.

    The room was a tad on the smaller side, but perfect for a short 2-night getaway. They could probably free up a fair bit of space by upgrading the TVs to flat-panel units moving the armoire out of it's central space, though there's not much they could do to make the bathroom more spacious. But really it was just such an attractive room that it was easy to overlook these little things.

    I really appreciated the free Wi-Fi (many other competitors we checked with charged a daily fee), as well as the nice plush bathrobes in the closet. They had all the standard amenities such as a coffee maker, hair dryer, full shower/bath combo, free daily copy of the Seattle Times, a small fitness room on site, and both a full-service restaurant and bar in the lobby (though, typical for hotel dining, the prices looked a tad high so we just walked to other places).

    There were a few improvements that could have bumped this up to a 5-star review:
    -Not a lot of surface space (just the desk and one bedside table)
    -No fridge
    -No fan in the bathroom (small space steamed up pretty quickly)
    -Valet parking only = tip every time you take your car out

    But these little quibbles don't really come into play that much on a short stay, and the wonderful 5* worthy service more than outweighs the slight deficiencies. The Mayflower Park will be tops on my list when next I return to Seattle, and I highly recommend it this hotel

    What a great hotel to stay at for out towners.
    Right in the heart of downtown Seattle. I got to play tourist without really getting lost because everything is within walking distance. You can walk to the wharf, the space needle, alll the coffee shops in the world. You can even walk to SAFECO and QWEST if you really wanted to.
    This hotel is on the map for being historic. It was built in the 1800's and they even have a grandfather clock in the main lobby thgat is over 200 years old. Pretty cool.
    Even their main lobby restroom shows that it's old because it looks like you're walking down 3 flights of stairs to a ghost encounters waiting to happen.
    The valet service is the best. Really helpful guys and really knowledgeable. felt sorry for them when it's super cold outside and their standing outside freezing.
    I got the room with 2 queen beds but it comes with bathrooms. Super cool. My wife gets one and I get one. Every hotel should take notes.
    The bar downstairs( ANDALUCA'S) has the best martinis which was highly recommended by people from Seattle.
    Shoppers beware. You even have a mall that is connected to the hotel. How cool is that? If you don't feel like driving anywhere then you can just go to the lobby and you're in like flynn.
    Highly recommend for tourist to check out this hotel.

    Incredible experience.

    Staff greeted me by name (once they learned it) at checkin and then every single one of them did every single time they saw me thereafter. I do not know how all staff memorized all guests names like that. (Or maybe it was just me, you know, I'm special.) But it is a nice touch.

    Guest room: plush and comfy. Old world style: claw foot chairs (don't ask me what century).  New world tech: free in-room WiFi, huge flat screen TV. Fluffy robe. Need it...Brrr!

    Lobby bar: (may be able to rate it separately) has Absinthe. (Minus 1/2 star for bartender repeatedly asking "Another Absinthe Miss G?") (Plus 1/2 star for bartender eventually just bringing it.)

    Maybe I'll update or add more before I checkout since I do have free in-room WiFi.

    But if you are in SEA and can afford it or find a special, STAY here!

    Nice hotel really glad we ended up there. It's not the most fancy but it is nice for the age and price. I love the location, it is in the middle of everything. 10 minute walk to pike pl market, across the street from Macy's, and right next to a mall. The monorail is connected to the mall so you can hop on that and get to space needle for $2.25 or I think it was $4 round trip. 5 minute walks to many good restaurants. If you are looking to come out here and not really worried about a fancy expensive hotel you will like the mayflower.

    Mayflower Park in downtown Seattle is a historic, elegant, charming place with all the comforts of a modern hotel. The service was exceptional; we were greeted by a friendly staff member every time we stepped foot inside. Our deluxe queen suite was large yet cozy with fantastic views of downtown Seattle including the Space Needle.  The hotel also happens to be in walking distance to a plethora of fun things to do and see; Pike Place Market, shopping, restaurants; it could not have been more perfect!  It was a treat to stay in such a bustling, lively exciting part of this city, especially for my first visit. I really got a feel for the place. P.S. The hotel bar,  Oliver's, is also fantastic!

    I am a new member to Yelp & becuase I just did my rant on the Edgewater I decided I should toss some love to a hotel that did everything right. They even made a mistake during our stay & had no issues with making things right. If you want a great location, awesome food & a fabulous staff (including the manager), then this is a safe bet. For every negative you should throw out at least one positive to show the world beauty does exsist. Thank you Marflower Park.

    The place was clean and the people very pleasant, The valet was a good deal i thought. Because of the in and out privileges.

    We may have left a piece of jewelry in the bathroom on the sink, I called and asked about it and they said they will check. i'm not holding my breath, i'm sure if found it was pocketed. :(

    Very nice hotel situated close to public transportation and within walking distance of a lot of Seattle highlights, like Pike's Place Market.  The rooms are smaller than what you'll find in modern hotels, but the charms of this restored historic hotel make up for that.   We'll be back next time we're in Seattle!

    I would give this place a 4.5 if I could. Stayed here with my husband and 21 month old for 3 nights and really enjoyed the stay. For the price, $170 a night (after tax), I think this place is a good deal. Most of the nicer hotels around this area go for $200-$300 a night.

    Pros: clean room, great bar downstairs with friendly waitstaff and a great happy hour, vintage charm (i.e.. the cool hexagon subway tile in the bathroom), corner room had great views, excellent location (close to pikes market, monorail station which goes to seattle center, shopping district and a short walk to trendy belltown and queen ann neighborhoods), check out is at noon and you can request a late check out at one, friendly maid service, free wi-fi, helpful concierge.

    Cons: very minor things like the free wi-fi was a little slow, curtains in rooms have a very busy floral print and don't black out very well. Loved the view from our corner room but it was a little on the small side (if you want a bigger room just don't get one on the corner is my advice). Also, the tile in the lobby looks kind of like something you would see in a McDonalds. I guess I'm a sucker for esthetics.

    Overall though i really liked this hotel and would definitely stay here again and recommend it to friends.

    I don't even care about my Starwoods (Westin, Sheraton, W) points.

    We usually stay at the Westin or Sheraton in Seattle or Westin Bellevue each time we come south of the border. To induce my Mom to walk around or for her not to have any excuses not to, I decided to try out Mayflower because it is ONE block closer to Pike Market, Nordstroms, etc. It's actually kiddy corner to the Westin. And the $39 valet parking at the Sheraton really turned me off. I think that I paid $28-32 at the Westin last time. Mayflower's valet parking was included in the package.

    Wow, what a little gem. I love the non-corporate feel. The staff looked like they enjoy working there instead of having the usual blank smiles. Some reviewers mentioned that it is an older hotel so I was worried initially. It's old charm, similar to the Four Seasons (not another name) with beautiful architectural details.

    It has 12 floors and we were on the 6th. I booked the Deluxe Queen Queen (2 Queen beds) and our room had 2 full baths! That was a major plus and although I can see why some reviewers may called the bathroom small, it had enough space for all my toiletries. If you want small, check out Hotel Max. The beds were so comfortable - Westin always make a note of their "heavenly beds" but these are just as nice if not better.

    Our "Canadian" package included 2 queen beds, valet parking and 2 full breakfast ($15 per person, including tax AND gratuities).  I checked the hotel offers at both the Sheraton and Westin and nothing came close. They really need to reconsider the ridiculous valet parking fees.

    The conciege provided my Mom with the hotel's SAM membership card so she could check out the Michelanglo and Calder exhibition for free. I joined her later so I was able to use that too.

    The only negative part, which to be honest, probably worked in my favour was the gym. It was a room packed with gym equipment. Thank goodness I was the only one there because it would have been really awkward to use the treadmill so close to everyone. I'm sure they have fans but I didn't know how to turn it on.

    I will definitely come back.

    Stayed here a few times based on the central location (easy walk down to Pike Place Market, to Belltown, Pioneer square) & they also typically have great deals on their website online. Rooms are smallish but perfect for 1-2, queen sized bed was incredibly comfortable. Very clean, has a classy look without looking worn & tired. Free wi-fi. Fitness room is small but sufficient if you're training inside. Would stay here again anytime.

    After finding a bloody towel in one of the drawers in my room I was upset. It was my brothers bachelor trip and I felt like I was staying in a dive motel. I alerted the front desk and they sent some one to remove it. The next day I received a letter saying they were giving me a discount. It was the most confusing letter I had ever read. Upon checking out days later I presented the front desk with the letter, and they were also confused by it and didn't know what to do and how to interpret the discount. After 20 minutes a woman tried explaining that my discount was something much less then the letter hinted at. The amount I was discounted did not make up for the fact that my brother felt uncomfortable in such a uncleanly room. I wish I never stayed there. The front desk was nice and helpful until my checkout when they acted as if I was trying to rip them off. Do not stay here, it is an unclean unhealthy environment where the staff is nice until its time for you to leave.

    I really like this hotel. Rooms are nice and clean and well maintained. The staff are excellent. Great food and drink downstairs in the restaurant "Andaluca" and the bar "Oliver's". The bartender is awesome. In the heart of downtown Seattle and you can walk everywhere. I love the classic look of the place. A really good value for money, I would recommend staying here.

    If I were an alcoholic I would without question end up here. This bar absolutely rules the universe. Old school but not stuffy and yet trendy enough to make my 40 year old self feel like a twenty something hipster.

    And if you are lucky enough to stay the night here, they short elevator ride up to your room is a double bonus as you can drink that much more. The rooms are a little dated and might even be haunted. But after a night of downing some of the countries finest martinis you will sleep right through your visit from Patrick Swayze.

    Good location and even better bar make this 3 1/2 stars.

    A very friendly hotel! Everyone who we've encountered that works at the Mayflower Park Hotel has been very personable, respectful and strikes up a conversation with you! We made a reservation for this hotel at the last minute and were very surprised by the decor in the lobby and rooms. The lobby is absolutely magnificent- no wonder they are a historical site! Our rooms were very upscale but still kept the historic feeling. Their rooms include a coffee maker, TV, hair dryer, and iron with ironing board. We were able to get WiFi on the 8th floor. Andaluca and Oliver's are connected to this hotel, although we did not eat at either of those restaurants. If you are visiting Seattle then definitely check this place out!

    Would be a 3.5, but isn't an option... It's a nice place in a good location, but the rooms are small (unless you get lucky and get a handicap capable room). The staff is nice, but there is just something missing to make it a four star... no breakfast, kinda pricey restaurant downstairs, but I hear they have great drinks. For the most part, it's ok for an "in and out" hotel, but not somewhere I would want to just chill at.

    BTW they say free wifi but we could only get it up to 3rd floor...any higher and you're out of luck

    If you find yourself in Seattle and would like a terrific downtown location, look no further than the Mayflower Park Hotel. This is a traditional, full amenity establishment with character. The rooms are beautifully done, the service is first-rate and the prices are reasonable for what you get. We recently stayed three days there and we will make a point of returning the next time we go to Seattle. Give it a try...you won't be disappointed.

    Really great hotel. All around the service was wonderful.  Though the concierge was very busy both times I needed to ask for directions they were still quite helpful.

    The hotel's strong point is its location. There is an interior path to the Westlake Mall, however during my stay this wing was being worked on. But it's close to a lot of the key sights a tourist would want to visit. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. I had a nice view of downtown. Only downfall is the walls seemed to be thin and I could sometimes hear noises from rooms next door.

    Also, I ordered room service during my last night here and the fruit and cheese plate was i-n-s-a-n-e. Sure it's simple, but this plate could have fed 6 people easily. The fruit was delicious, and the various cheeses and crackers were just what I needed to satisfy my late night munchies.

    I'll be back in Seattle with my significant other in the near future and I already know this is where we'll be staying.

    My wife and I stayed at the Mayflower Park on St Patty's weekend, which just happens to be our 17th wedding anniversary.  Of course, we let them know when making the reservation and asked for an upper floor.    Reservations were easy and then even honored a corporate discount for the company I work for.  Nice!  We got a King Suite which was well appointed and roomy considering this is a historical hotel.   The bathroom was a little crapped but the room was large.  Unfortunately, we were placed on the 2nd floor and not as high as I had hoped.   The real reason why I wanted a higher floor was to avoid any road noise from the street below. I've stayed in downtown hotels before and the road noise would keep you awake all night.   Once I was in the room I was pleasantly surprised to find that virtually no noise made it in.  
    We were there with another couple and once we made it to our rooms and dropped our bags on the floor, we made a B line for the bar.  My wife and I are on a low carb diet so we stuck with the cheese platter:  huge!!  Both girls had very tasty and STRONG Martinis (pink - flavor unknown)...  They loved them.    I recommend kick starting your night here.  We caught a cab and hit the town.
    Too make a long story short, when I woke up in the morning I found a card addressed to my wife and I.  A little confused, and thinking it was a bill of some kind, I opened it up.   I was absolutely amazed at what I found.  The staff had actually gotten an anniversary card for my wife and I, and personalized the text with our names and anniversary.  If that wasn't enough, the staff had individually signed the card with a personal message from each.  What an incredible sweet and thoughtful gesture and I will never forget it.
    When we checked out, I thanked them for the card and let them know how much it meant to me and my wife.  I do a lot of traveling for business and have never seen a personal touch such as this.  They even comped our parking charge because they weren't able to get us on a high floor.

    I'm quoting myself here: this is "a boutique hotel in all the good ways". Forget the Marriotts, Hiltons or Westins with their high price-tag for downtown accommodations-try this place! The rooms are a bit on the small side-but then did you really come for the room? The hotel feels romantic and a bit Victorian, with excellent dining in their onsite restaurants or easy walking distance to the Pikes Marketplace or any of the other delicious restaurants downtown.  The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. I'm staying here again on my next trip!

    We loved this hotel.  It has a great story, and loving owners who have enhanced it's former glory.  The rooms and bathrooms are on the smaller side compared to some of the larger chain hotels, but the character and class of this place more than makes up for it.  The beds are comfortable, the staff are very friendly and helpful, especially the bell hops.  The hotel has a classy boutique feel.  The lounge downstairs is great, and the location of the hotel is within walking distance to most of downtown and directly across the street from Macy's.  We really enjoyed our stay and will be back.

    A nice historic boutique hotel in Seattle.  Rooms of course are a little small.  Very cool history of the place.

    Everything was top notch.  Greta service from the bell hops, valets, front desk.  Right in the middle of downtown, a short walk to Pike's Market and the monorail to Seattle Center and the Space Needle.  Really a good choice.

    Good bar in the lobby and a wonderful restaurant too (Anduluca's).

    We had free valet parking (yay!) and free wireless Internet (yay!) and free breakfasts for two (double yay!).

    Everything about the place says style without pretentious. Stay away from the monotony of the chains and enjoy the charm of Mayflower.

    Never going to stay here again.  I check into my room and try to go to sleep only to be jarred back to consciousnesses by a very loud clanking that is followed by a quieter series of clanks.  This pattern repeats a number of times.  A call to the front desk asking to be moved to a room that doesn't have that is responded to with the statement that all of their rooms do that.
    I guess that means that I need to figure out how to tell my corporate travel agency to never put me at this hotel again.

    I loved my experience at the Mayflower. They go above and beyond to assure your stay is excellent. This is a renovated historical hotel. That means room size and bathroom size are on the small side. What you don't get in size you get in quality of service. Also, the location is perfect. It is right by public transportation to the airport, walking distance to the waterfront, pioneer square, pike street market, and the monorail to see the space needle/Seattle center. If I ever come back to Seattle this is where I will stay.

    One week ago I was in Seattle for an internal training conference, and my company booked a room for me at this hotel. Maybe it's because I'm traveling a lot, but my experience was just OK.

    It's an old style hotel with some OK room that would need a bit of refreshment. When I'm out at a conference, most of the time I had to spend some time during the evening at the desk to do some work: it was the worst chair I ever had in a hotel, so uncomfortable for the back.

    I know we don't stay all day long in the bathroom, but it was one of the tiny "we didn't have enough space to put two beds, so we shrink the space on the bathroom" one: you know when you don't have enough space to put your own stuff. Even if the bath was long enough to have some comfortable leg space, it wouldn't hurt to give it a fresh paint job as big chunks of paint were missing. Last, but not least for the washroom, the light switch. Yes, I'm going to talk about a tiny light switch as the switch was outside of the bathroom. What's that mean? Since it's a two bed room, and that I had to share my room with a co-worker, each time he was going to the restroom during the night, I had the light in my face (and it was the same for him): never thought about putting the switch inside, so people can close the door, and open the light after so nobody will be disturbed during their sleep? Now I may look like a fussy person, but it's all those little details that make the difference between an awful, an OK or an amazing stay at a hotel!

    The last thing I have to talk about is about the service at the hotel. Overall it was good, except the fact that they totally forgot that our beds wall was next to a room keeping service one. All the maids where going there to take some fresh bed sheet or whatever they had to do, there were making a lot of noise. Each time they closed the door, they slammed it. Having our room next to it was a real problem in the mornings I wanted to wake-up a little later than 6-7am. Very annoying!

    At the end, it's far from the best hotel I stayed too, but it's a nice little place to go as it's near downtown, and not too expensive.

    GREAT hotel! We picked it for the location and were not disappointed by anything!

    The staff is wonderful - friendly, efficient and helpful. The rooms are spotless and the entire hotel has wonderful historical touches without looking old or shabby.

    We ordered room service one night and it was reasonable, tasty and fast.

    Also had to fax something on our last day and the desk staff was very accomodating (there was a charge, which is to be expected, and it was reasonable).

    The only caveat is that it is expensive. I got a great deal as I was there for the marathon and got a special rate by booking through the race, but I think the "regular" price is a bit steep. However, if you want to be literally in the middle of EVERYTHING, it is worth the cost!

    Best location if you are staying in Seattle.  Can walk to everything that is downtown or near it.  Convenient to offices, restaurants on the water, and the Space Needle.  Easy to get here directly from the airport on light rail without having to rent a car.  Their in-house breakfast place has terrific food.  Room was elegantly furnished, well appointed, and quiet, with nice city views.  Would definitely return here.

    Classic hotel in great location.  Excellent service.  Some minor issues that were resolved in excellent fashion.

    The hotel's decor is classic, but a bit dated.  While dated, nothing was worn.  Front desk staff cheerily greeted us and quickly gave us our keys.  Our first room had a strong chlorine smell.  The staff got us a new room and brought us the keys within minutes.  The room was comfortable, quiet and clean with super-fast free internet access.  The next morning we went for a morning walk and the maid was already cleaning our room.  She discovered a problem with the bath tub and called maintenance to fix it, however maintenance staff didn't start until an hour later.  We received new keys and used the shower in a different room.  We received a hand-written apology and free breakfast for two.  

    The hotel is super convenient to shopping, sights and public transportation.

    While we had a few issues, we would definitely stay here again!

    great hotel. super friendly and accommodating staff. hotel is perfect for locals needing an escape (me) and visitors (parents) wanting to do the tourist thing. it's smack dab in the middle of the shopping area. around the corner from the monorail. just a couple blocks to pike place market, the convention center and belltown. if you don't mind the hill, it's only a 10 min or so walk to capital hill. my room was super nice and big. looks like the hotel has been kept up real well or been remodeled recently, or both!. valet was handy and quick. didn't get a chance to eat at andaluca or olivers, but the dinner menu looked great. all in all a great trip and just booked my next visit for this coming weekend. my only gripe is that they only have two elevators so gets a little congested at checkout time. but that's hardly a valid gripe for a beautiful historic hotel. besides, it's an opportunity for some free exercise taking the stairs.

    This was my second time staying here at the Mayflower. They have good packages on their website so I suggest you check those out before booking. We got a package with tickets to the glass museum and valet parking.

    Honestly, one of the reasons I came back to this hotel was the service. Everyone there is extremely cheerful and helpful. We checked in early and they held our bags while they got our room ready. When we came back everything was ready to go for our room. We did have to get maintenance to come and help us with the new TV system they installed. He was nice about fixing it for us.

    Yes this is an old hotel but I find it charming and its location is right in the heart of everything. I do travel with a white noise generator so I cant say if it was loud or not. We will probably be returning here if we need to stay the night in Seattle!

    After reading various reviews on yelp and other hotel browsing sites, I've decided to go with this hotel and I'm definitely glad that I did so!  This is my 2nd time to Seattle but 1st time booking everything myself.  If you are on 4th ave driving towards Olive st, be ready to make a stop right when you turn on Olive because the Valet is RIGHT at the corner; we didn't realize that the hotel was right there so we had to drive all the way around back to the same spot due to the one-way streets.  After we let the valet take our car, we received a valet-ticket, which is something you give the valet whenever you need your car, so make sure you put it in a safe place!  When we got to the check-in counter, they had an available room, so we got to go up right away!  It was 2pm and regular check-in time was 3pm.

    When we got to the room, it was a bit smaller than i'd expected, but it has all the essentials so i didn't really mind (suitable for couples i'd say).  Everything's really simple, and you get morning newspapers everyday!  I'd say the best part about this hotel is their location.  There are various shops such as Gap, Urban Outfitters, Antrhopologies and etc. in walking distance, and so is the Pike's Place Market.  Right down the street, about 3 min walk, there's a pharmacy where you can get chips, sodas, essentials and what not, which made me very happy :).

    Check out was quick too, so everything was smooth and easy :)  If you're looking for convenient place, friendly services, then this is the place to go!

    Free WI-FI, NO Free parking (valet)

    We stayed last night. I love this kind of hotel. Valet service right at the front door, bellhops to help immediately, and the check-in staff at the ready. Our two rooms (one for our son and d-in-law) were ready 3 hours early, which was GREAT. We unwound for a couple of minutes in our rooms and then needed lunch. We didn't feel like walking around, so we stayed and enjoyed Oliver's restaurant right in the hotel. It was wonderful. The ambiance was pretty: it's upscale without being stuffy. I loved how the staff treated us, always making good eye contact and sincerely wanting to help us in any way possible. We had breakfast at the other restaurant this morning, and it too was surprisingly delicious.

    The rooms were clean, the hot water was abundant, the hallway stayed quiet all night. It was a perfect choice. Everyone else has commented on the excellent location, and I will, too. We walked to the space needle this morning, and last night had dinner at Elliott's on the waterfront. Walking is easy, and there's something interesting everywhere you look.

    We enjoyed walking across the street to a huge Macy's and around a corner to a huge Nordstrom. Ross is down the street; there's loads of shopping.

    Went to the EMP (Experience Music Project) adjacent to the space needle, and that was delightful. We were only in Seattle 24 hours, but what a great place, and the hotel certainly added to the enjoyment of the trip. Would absolutely 100% stay here again and will always recommend it.

    I see someone from The Mayflower has decided to respond, albeit quite some time after the fact, but basically regurgitating the same line.

    NOBODY warned us about smoking in the room because we didn't. Period. End of story. If there had been such an interaction I wouldn't have been surprised and irritated by the whole affair. So basically we are back to the point where they call me a liar, and I say, someone was having a bad day and decided to involve us in it.

Westlake Center is right there, the Paramount, the tram to the space needle... its all at your footsteps.  Andaluca is great... although I think I've only ever had breakfast there but always delicious!  Thankyou!  We enjoyed our recent stay there very much!

    I would have raved about this hotel however, I am now sitting at a table with 4 suitcases waiting for a flight 6 hours from now because the Mayflower was not accommodating at all.  We checked in Wednesday night to Friday night and spent Saturday night to Sunday morning outside of Seattle with the intention of returning to Seattle Sunday to enjoy the day before our evening flight assuming the Mayflower would graciously hold our bags after a 3 night stay.  The clerk looked at me and my companion with two rolling suitcases and two travel  bags in addition to purses and refused since we had already checked out.  My last day in Seattle was ruined by this hotel.

    Highly recommend this hotel.

    We booked it through bookit.com mystery hotel (it should be the only mystery hotel for 4 stars i believe) and got this hotel for $115 (what a steal)

    It is really convenient to everything - pike place market, monorail, walking distance to space needle, and in a very busy downtown area.

    The hotel itself was classy.

    Rooms itself was not very big, but sufficient for two people.  Fits a queen bed, 32" in flat screen, a desk, two nightstands and a chair.

    Bathroom is also small, but again sufficient.

    Overall, the hotel is not the most up to date or modern but it is clean, quaint, and most importantly, convenient and comfortable.

    Stayed here for 3 nights from May 26-29,2013.  Asked for 2 beds, was told by night person that we would be accommodated for Monday and Tuesday night, that it shouldn't be a problem.  Next morning, different guy says that I have to pay an extra $60/night.  There was a loud group of girls next to our room and someone called security on them.  However, it didn't stop them from being loud in the middle of the night.  I didn't sleep well 2 out of the 3 nights and the 1 night I was able to sleep was b/c I was dead tired.

    Also asked for recommendation for a late night place to grab a snack, was told that the convenience store was opened until 2am.  This place was about 0.5 mile away, but when I got there, it was closed at midnight.  Area was a little shady as I was asked for drugs by a couple guys.

    Good location though(walking distance to Pike's Place and close to tram) but the fact that I was told that I would have no issues upgrading to 2 beds and then later on told to pay $60 extra/night is wrong.  The store hour could easily be mistaken as the guy probably remembered the hours wrong.  I ended getting a hot dog on a night stand half  a mile further.

    This is a historic hotel that was renovated and it's one of my favorite hotels I've ever stayed in. The location is in downtown and is blocks away from Pike Place Market. In addition, it's connected to Westlake Center and the Light Link Rail so it was easy to arrive and leave for the SeaTac airport. I had originally booked this hotel through HotWire for $110 a night, arrived early and was able to check in much earlier than expected which was very nice. The rooms are a lot smaller than what I'm used to but for the location, it was no big deal. I'm just there to shower and have a nice sleep.

    The staff is wonderful! They have complimentary valet parking and everyone knows the downtown area really well. They will help with finding places to eat (concierge has tons of pamphlets and will personally call restaurants if you want something specific), find transportation, and give directions with big smiles! Although I was barely in my hotel room, everything was very neat and cozy.

    Small little things that I appreciated was the fact that there were large bottles of lotion, shampoo, and conditioner. The soap was much better quality than expected and they provided a shower cap. Another thing I thought was nice was the fact that they drop off a newspaper to your door each morning. The only thing I would have suggested to the hotel is to add a small fridge in the rooms, however considering the size, it might not be possible.

    Mayfair, Mayflower.  It's all the same, especially after you resent missing happy hour.

    Came here after a long work week for a "come to Jesus-missing happy hour so we'll make our own happy hour since we missed happy hour" hour.

    I was warned that this place was "old school".  And although that person was right, I was okay with the velvet-brocade wallpaper and Tony Bennett.  It was classy.

    I had ordered a dirty, Grey Goose martini, with olives.  My drink could have been dirtier, but it was garnished with some nice, fat olives.  My cohorts had ordered girly martini-esque drinks and all of our drinks were served in angular champagne glasses.

    I ordered a side of french fries to soak up what might have been an attention-garnering exodus.  They were awesome avec sides of ketchup and tartar sauce.

    Our server was awesome, taking great care to keeping us loaded with alcohol.

    The drinks were reasonably priced for a hotel bar.  

    I would come back here for a retro setting in which to bitch away the week's past events.

    A good hotel however our room was so small.  With what might have been a queen bed,  table and dresser with tv inside the upper portion,  We placed our suitcase on the stand provided in the one place available.   This required my wife and I to take turns going along the end of the bed and where the suitcase was.  The tv is quite small.  Finally,  there was dirt our something else on the bathroom wall and back of the bathroom door.

    We stayed one night.  We were on the 12th floor and froze.  We turned the system up to 85 degrees and no difference.  There was a thin blanket on the bed and another in the closet.  I called the desk and they said to make sure the drapes were closed because we were on the 12th floor.  I asked for a space heater and it took over an hour to get one.  Upon check out I told them how cold we had been and how the system didn't work.  I also said the bedding was insufficient.  They seem very uninterested and said next time I came I should call sooner.  I did state that there wasn't going to be a next time.  One of the most miserable hotel experiences of my long life.

    The front desk was really attentive, welcoming, and helpful----the rooms were small, but very cozy and quaint.  We loved our 11th floor corner room, as we had two great windows and a lovely view of the city.  Parking at the hotel was odd, as we parked in the parking garage RIGHT NEXT TO the hotel, but had to enter and exit through the mall.  Awkward hauling pillows and luggage through the mall to access our car, but the proximity was worth the "trouble".  Honestly not sure what else you are supposed to do---that was the closest parking to the hotel, and it only cost us $14 dollars for 1 day + over night parking.

    Loved this hotel and its awesome location!  They are located right in the middle of all the attractions.  The metro is right behind the hotel (semi connected) which makes it an easy way to get to the Space Needle.  Pikes Place is only four street down and shopping is right outside of your door.  The staff is very friendly and willing to assist in anyway possible.  

    My boyfriend and I arrived at the hotel around 11PM to check in and realized that we needed water and other daily "necessities".  We asked the front desk which pointed us to Ralphs grocery store and even offered to walk us there but, we figured we would be OK on our own as it was literally RIGHT down the street.

    The rooms aren't too extravagant but, feels very home like and clean.  Good place to kick back and relax.  Our view was of the Macy's across the street.

    I'd recommend this hotel to everyone visiting Seattle and wants to stay somewhere convenient.

    SITREP

    I stayed here on a recent trip because I couldn't get the government rate at the Homewood Suites this particular work-junket.  That ended up being the first thing that was went right, cause I then ended up here with a sweet room rate deal.

    The rooms are small, so don't expect a lot of space.  But the room and accompanying bathroom are comfortable, and for me (and a night guest) proved to be quite adequate for lounging, sleeping, and enjoying the moments.

    WIFI

    Gotta love an old classic place that still moves forward into the 21st Century with the free tech-broadband that I need and want.

    THE BAR

    Oh my god.  This bar is classic, the kind you'd expect the brat pack to hang out at because it just had that vibe.  On another completely personal note, I got into a conversation with the bartender about the history of the Mayflower Park Hotel and as a completely volunteered aside, I mentioned that my ancestress Elizabeth Fuller was the first baby born in the Plymouth Colony to her parents came across on the Mayflower 400 hundred years ago.  Apparently that netted me a free whiskey shot from the bartender (and again the NEXT night when he saw me again).  So that put an extra lift in the walk as well.

    LOCATION

    This place is within easy walking distance of all the hoods that I don't mind walking to during the day (or at night):  Pike Place Market, Belltown, International District, Capitol Hill, etc. etc.  If I don't want to walk, I take the bus or Light-Link.  If it's REALLY late (such as when I leave The Merc), I will cab a quick ride back.

    THE LOWDOWN

    An Excellent Hotel Stop in Downtown Seattle!~

    I would definitley stay here again and again.  Had an amazing weekend at this hotel.

    The check in was swift and fun. The hotel staff were polite and very happy to be there. The room was perfect for a couple, lots of space.  The decor was old but classy, something I really appreciated.  My girlfriend was taking photo's of the lobby it was that gorgeous.  

    We didn't have time to try either bar or restaurant, but I can tell you they were always busy with lots of customers (usually a good sign).

    Plus, the location of this place was so good, we didn't need the car.  The Valet picked it up when we arrived and I didn't need it again until check out, walked everywhere!

    Highly recommended.

    Charming hotel with a lot of history. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. You can't beat the location either since it's right in the middle of all the major tourist destinations. I'm giving it three stars due to the need of a renovation. The furniture in the room was old and stained. Our TV was the size of a small computer monitor and was hard to see from the beds across the room. The bathroom was also rather small.

    Visited Seattle two weeks ago and stayed at the beautiful Mayflower Park Hotel
    Great customer service from arrival to check-out. Clean and confortable beds, beautiful corner suite at 11th floor (way worth the upgrade) with awesome views.

    I haven't had dinner at their restaurant but they have one of the nicest bars I've seen with AMAZING cocktails! Don't miss out on looking at downtown Seattle while sipping on a delicious Manhattan cocktail!

    Very clean bathrooms, no vents but that didn't bother me. Loved the interior design of the rooms which are a bit small but it's not like you're moving there...perfect for a few nights or more.

    Their staff is super friendly and attentive, great hospitality!
    I would definitely stay there again and I look forward to it!

    I spent 3 nights there.
    -Pros
    1. locate in downtown, convenient
    2. front desk people very friendly

    -cons
    1. It is a really old building. The elevator makes weird sounds and you need to wait several minutes to go up/down every time. The ventilation opening is just above the towel rack and it is very dirty. You need to be careful not to touch the opening when you take/put your towels.
    2. The room service is poor. They only make the bed and update the towels, no cleaning of the bathroom at all! And one of my shoes went under the bed after the room service, it took me a long time to find it.
    3. They provide the lotion/shampoo in a large bottle locked on wall, instead of small individual bottles, which is fine for me. But the problems are: however careful you press, the lotion will shoot out very far and get onto your clothes or stuffs. The shampoo bottle pumps out so little every time you press that it basically takes you 50 press to get the amount you want (for a person with long hair), also, the pump does not come up after you press, so you need to press-lift-press-lift-.....

    It's a very cute hotel, a little antiquated but it's nice. Location is wonderful, centralized in Downtown Seattle, the Light Rail station is right there and it's walking distance to Pike Place market.

    Fantastic location and a beautifully maintained historic hotel. Service is generally smooth and pleasant. The housekeeping staff did forget to make up our room after our first night, but responded quickly when we called. Walls are a little thin, and the downtown location means you'll hear a lot of sirens, buses and construction noises. But that's life in the big city!

    You really can't go wrong here!

    Location is near perfect, shopping (Westlake next door), Pikes place a short walk, plenty of eateries nearby, including a friendly PF Changs. Got a fantastic deal online for the room, early checking no problem.

    My room wasn't huge, but very clean & comfortable, towels & linens of superior quality. Along with excellent upgraded toiletries.

    David H. was super friendly at the desk, & the hotel bar is off the charts in character & class. You must try the Manhattan cocktail. Matt the barman sets the perfect tone for unique experience.  Im looking forward to another visit!

    I've got no complaints (well one complaint, read about it later).

    On our way from London to Fairbanks (yes, this is a common trip for us, and no it's not easy and it's a pain. Thank you family for refusing to move out of Alaska) we decided to stay a couple of nights in Seattle to visit some friends we hadn't seen since their "last party ever" (read that as they had a baby).

    We needed a place to stay, and I know my parents stay here all the time when they come to Seattle. We opted to stay here as well. I can see why they like it.

    First, the location is amazing. Thanks to the new train from the Airport to Downtown Seattle, you can get here incredibly easy. It's right around the corner from the Westfield shopping center and it's quite easy to find. Way to go. It's also within walking distance to Pike's Street Market so you can head down there and check things out (and get a crumpet at the crumpet shop).

    The room was great as well. We had a mini-suite I guess. The bed was a bit small for two adult men, but there's was a couch and nice seating area to relax on as well. Free wifi in the rooms is a plus (no international roaming charges for us!). The bathroom is fantastic. Very good sized with a huge shower.

    My only one complaint (which is why it only gets four stars instead of five) was the TV. For some reason it was stuck in demo mode so it would keep bringing up the features of the TV when we were watching it. Apparently you could turn it off if you had the TV remote, but they only supplied the cable remote so there's nothing we could do except watch it with the stupid demo stuff. The second problem is the problem that most people/places have. It's a widescreen TV so you need to fix your TV settings. I don't want to watch non-HD/widescreen TV shows stretched out to fit the screen. Wide faces on the TV are not good. Luckily, that was easy to fix.

    The TV problem isn't enough to make me not want to go back and stay again, but I really hope they get someone with some technical knowledge in there to set up the TVs correctly.

    Nice boutique hotel in excellent location.  Very close to Pike Place Market, right around the corner to the mall & good shopping.  Very close to Nola & Serious Pie (two Tom Douglas Restaurants).  Nola is great for breakfast & pretty good for dinner.  Only downfall is that parking is only valet and an additional $40 per night.  The hotel prices were pretty good, but small rooms.  If you're okay with a cute hotel,  smallish nice rooms but a perfect location- this is it!

    Location for your dollar is awesome!  Reservations were made online easily. Staff is friendly. Rooms are roomy and comfortable. We had 2 queen room with 2 bathrooms which comes in handy.  

    Walking distance to Pikes, pier, shopping, ground transportation.

    Didn't have any noise issues.

    Our bed had little give and dipped in the middle, but much better than most hotels I've stayed at.

    I would stay here again

    Friends had a 2 queen suite which was really nice.

    pretty nice hotel.
    the staff were super friendly (front desk/room service/valet ...)
    probably the smallest room I've ever seen in a hotel, but overall it had a very cute atmosphere. the bathroom was smaller than my own, but it's not a big deal. it is close pike place market with Nordstrom  & macys right around the corner. the only thing I didn't like about the hotel is that they didn't have air conditioning in the room, I think it's because it's a older historic hotel. also, the cleaning staff needs to do a better job- I can see some of the stuff they left out to clean... but overall, I would stay here again.

    I stayed here for a job interview in Seattle, and what a great stay it was! This place is a charming, boutique-ish hotel right in the heart of the city. Location is key... you can pretty much walk to everything: restaurants, farmer's market, space needle. Service was also excellent. The employees at the front desk who checked me in were friendly and professional.

    The room itself was clean, spacious and comfortable. I really liked the shampoo and conditioner bottles inside the shower. They don't provide single-use, travel-sized toiletries. Instead, they have full bottles attached to the actual shower... you can use as much as you want, and it cuts down on trash as well!

    During my stay I ordered room-service, which was quick and efficient. Placing the order was easy, and it was even ready and delivered to my door before the estimated time. The actual food was just OK, a little bland... but it's hotel food. I guess I wasn't expecting too much there.

    As for pricing, since I stayed here for a job interview I'm not sure what pricing is like. The Mayflower definitely isn't a fancy place, but the service and ambiance really give it that upscale feel. Would definitely stay here again, this time on my own dime!

    Journey:
    A friend and I decided to hop on a plane to see a concert, so I booked us a flight/hotel combo and after much deliberation we chose the Mayflower.  We flew in early (to take advantage of having a great breakfast) so, needless to say, we got to the hotel mega early.  We stated that we know that we're "early for check-in, but could you store our bags for us?"  The friendly concierge replied "I can do better than that.  How about a room?"  BONUS!!  We never expected to get a room at 9am on a Saturday!

    Specs:
    This hotel has kept the classic feel of what an older hotel should resonate, but yet they "sneak" in modern conveniences, like free wifi.
    Our room had a spectacular view of the city.  Even glimpses of the Space Needle could be seen at certain angles.  I doubt there's a bad view in any room of this place.
    The room was spotless, the bath was fully stocked with fluffy towels, not those thin ones, the size of a hand towel that act more like a tissue than towel.  Then there's the bed, Oh Lordy, the bed was fantastic!  Sheets were extremely soft, the bed itself was like being surrounded by thousands of baby ducks.  It was so comfortable that it was extremely hard leaving it the next day.

    Location:
    The Mayflower is perfect for any downtown perusing that one is in the mood for.  Everything is either an easy walk, bus or Light-Link away.

    Love the location.  Love the staff.  Love the BED!  This gal would definitely stay here again.

    This was a very nice hotel and one of the better choices I made whilst planning and over planning the trip that brought us here.

    Long story short, I take a cruise every year with my sister.  This year we decided on a Pacific Coastal repositioning cruise that left from Vancouver and ended in Los Angeles.  Through my research, I decided that it would be fun, and more cost effective to fly into Seattle and take Amtrak to Vancouver the next day.  

    I'd never been to Seattle yet it's always been on my list of places to go.  

    A huge reason why I chose this hotel is because my parents decided to join us on this trip so I had been trying to ensure that everything could go as perfectly as possible and that my mother could find very little to complain about.  My sister and I could sleep in a hostel and not care.  My parents also like old, historic places so out of all the other hotels on my list, this one ended up standing out and was the one I booked.  

    Our arrival to the hotel could not have come soon enough.  My sister had just finished throwing up in a trashcan on a street corner which I was really hoping was the result of her riding backwards on the light rail from the airport and not because she was taking ill right before our trip.  

    We were given a free room upgrade which could not have worked out more perfectly.  My sister (who sadly saw nothing of Seattle other than this hotel room) slept in the bedroom and my parents and I weren't disturbing her out in the living room area.  The 2 full bathrooms were a major plus as well.  

    Staff was way friendly and helpful.  My parents are big into getting recommendations from "the concierge" or other employees, I just rely on Yelp, so they utilized people more than my sister or I ever would.  

    They arranged a cab the next morning to get us to the Amtrak station.  It made things quite easy for us.  

    I was way pleased with myself for going with the Mayflower Park.  Oh, also within walking distance of anything we felt we "needed" to see during our few sightseeing hours.  We walked to the Pike Place Market and to the Space Needle.

    The Mayflower Park is a perfectly nice, comfortable hotel in the heart of downtown Seattle.  It was good value for the price -- I got a good rate on line.

    I got to the Mayflower Park late and left early the next morning, so I can't say much about the facilities.

    If you're looking for stylish or cool, you don't want the Mayflower Park.  Your grandmother would have felt perfectly at home here -- when she was your age.  Although the flat screen TV would have puzzled her.

    My family and I stayed at the Mayflower before a cruise. The rooms were decent for what we paid, and the location is great. We boarded our cruise feeling good about the Mayflower.

    However, one week later I called the Mayflower (from our cruise ship) to see if they could hold my family's luggage for a couple hours when we came back into port. We wanted to explore Seattle before our flight back home that evening.

    The girl at the front said they could not store luggage for non guests. I told her we stayed last week, and offered to pay for the few hours storage. She said if we wanted to pay we could store them for a few hours. She gave me the rate and I told her we would take her up on that offer.

    The next day we paid for two cabs and shuffled the the luggage to the hotel. The girl at the front counter, Ashley, flat out told me that the girl we spoke to the night before was new and they do not store luggage. They do store luggage for current guests, but she could not do anything for me. No, there was no manager on duty. No, we could not pay, even for 3 hours.

    It's Sunday, no one else is open, I have no ride, my parents are older and cant walk everywhere with the luggage, and we're in a city we don't know. None of these pleadings got my anywhere except the icy, "Sorry", response. I reminded her that we only made this trip and paid for 2 cabs here because of her co-workers statement that we could pay for storage. "Sorry."

    I went outside for a bit to try and brainstorm what we were going to do. When I came back in, I spoke with the other gentlemen at the front counter, who told me there was a manager on call, but he was not over this division. I asked him to call him down, and the extremely friendly manager offered to store it for a few hours.

    When we got back home, I emailed the general manager, Paul, to let him know my displeasure dealing with Ashley. I gave him the full story in a long email, citing the good customer service along with the bad. The response I received the next day was frustrating. Paul doesn't really address the fact that his new person made a mistake. He doesn't really take an interest in the way that Ashley handled the situation. Instead, he cites policy and the reason why they don't store luggage. And while I fully understand why, I don't believe the Mayflower general manager understood why I was writing him.

    So the long of the short of it is this: If you can get through your stay without having an issue that requires an executive decision, you'll be fine. If you have an issue, good luck getting resolution, a sympathetic ear, or good customer service without a fight.

    Great things:  Staff was friendly and efficient, rooms were big, close to everything, comfortable bed and great big giant tub and good linen. Hotel was reasonably priced compared to others in the area.

    Not so good things:  Walls are thin and this won't be your chance to sleep without earplugs.  Housekeeping doesn't have a list of who's checked out so you may get an early knock at the door while you're in the bathroom.  In this way it's a lot like home:  you still hear the snoring and people won't leave you alone when you desire privacy.

    The Mayflower Park Hotel is an inconspicuous-looking hotel from the outside. But it's centrally-located, which makes this hotel a must for those visiting Seattle who want to be near a transportation hub, or the downtown shopping core. I chose this hotel for my recent work trip to Seattle because it's a few minutes from the Link Light Rail, so getting to and from the airport is a breeze, and is close to the South Lake Union Streetcar, which makes getting to and from work simple.

    Check-in and check-out were very easy. Upon check-in, I was given a couple of perks including coupons for nearby stores, and discounts for breakfast and dinner at Andaluca, which is the restaurant next door. The hotel is also connected to a bar, called Olivar's. I didn't visit either one on this visit, but have eaten at Andaluca's in the past (it's good).

    The room was very cozy, as in not spacious. I had a single room with a queen-sized bed. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. There was a television as well, but I didn't use it. The walls were pretty thin, as I was able to hear my neighbor's cellphone ring. The bathroom is very cozy as well. The showers included shampoo and conditioner in pumps attached to the wall, and a nice bar of soap. There's also a body lotion pump attached to the wall.

    Free wi-fi, decent speeds.

    I booked on-line through a third party. I am all about traveling in style and saving money at the same time. When I searched for a hotel, I entered 4 guests - 2 adults and 2 children. When we arrived, we checked in and went up to our room. It was a tiny room with one small bed. We all laughed, slid next to each other on our way to the elevator and proceeded back down to the lobby.  We were told that we would have to pay $60 a night for the upgrade to have another bed. I notice that this was the case in another review, as well. So, if you are in need of more than one bed - my advice would be to call ahead and get something in writing that guarantees 2 beds at the rate you were quoted.  That aside, the rest of the experience was fantastic.

    Due to all the confusion, they gave us an upgrade for the extra $60 a night. We had 2 bathrooms and a living room, which was fantastic. We had a view of the monorail and really enjoyed watching the hustle and bustle of the city from up above.  This hotel is historic but you really would never know, other than the charm. My girls mentioned it reminded them of the tower of terror. In a way that's true. The ambiance definitely feels like you have teleported back to 1927, with all the conveniences of 2014. Everything is clean, classy and feels new.  The staff was friendly and helpful. The lobby is gorgeous and the inside access to the Westlake mall and monorail (to the Space Needle and EMP) is priceless.  We had to check out but our flight was not for another 6 hours and they were more than glad to check our bags for us. They also printed our boarding passes for us, free of charge.

    I would highly recommend staying here. You can walk to Pike Place Market, ferries, 5th Street Theater and take the monorail to the Space Needle.

    We travel to Seattle for business every month and we will never ever stay here and will recommend that anyone we do business with a avoid it as well.

    We walked in to lobby to regroup after meetings and were planning to step into the parlor for some tea and when one of our coworker asked to use the restroom we were instructed if we weren't staying in the hotel we had to leave.

    Horrible business practice for any company!!

    For anyone visiting a town or city for the first time, you want to be around somewhere you remember, and friendly faces.  Mayflower Park Hotel had it in spades.

    Booking our trip on Orbitz, I noticed all the 4 and 5-star reviews for this hotel.  Plus it touted being very convenient for downtown Seattle for tourists and first time visitors.  Works for me!

    It was so much easier to get to this hotel than you know!  It literally is a hop, skip, and a jump from the SeaTac Airport.  Mayflower even includes instructions on their website of how to commute from the Light Link Rail at the airport to the hotel.  The Mayflower is literally right outside the front doors of the Light Link Rail.  It is no more than half a block away which makes it real easy.  We didn't have to rent a car, taking the Light Link Rail from the airport straight to our hotel saved us time, hassle, and money!  What a blessing.  After a 35 minute trip on the rail we were at their front door.

    The Mayflower is definitely a historic hotel and it shows.  The decor and everything screams old school charm.  Your Lolo and Lola would have loved this kind of place, and I can imagine a fellow like Howard Hughes drinking a whiskey in the lobby bar.  It has been recently renovated but luckily it's kept all of the charm.  The lobby staff was very friendly at check in, asking us if this is our first time staying at the Mayflower, and since we were tourists if we would like a complimentary map.  Staff even gave us clear and easy directions on how to get to Pike Place Market in a snap (it was literally a 5 minute walk from the hotel).  Liking it already.

    Our room was high up on the 14th floor, and we were given a nice room with a view.  Now, the room is on the small side, and there's nothing too fancy about it, but the history of it all was evident.  We did have a flat screen TV, a comfy chair, and a nice warm, clean bed to come back to every night.  One plus, our room had a TON of sockets for plugging in your charger, the iron, whatever.  There is no fridge with the room, but a phone call to housekeeping will get you a dorm sized one in a jiffy.  Don't forget to tip!

    My only complaint (if it really is one) of our room was the tiny bathroom.  I'm a big guy and naturally I like big bathrooms where I can spread out.  But the bathroom at Mayflower?  Tiny!  Seems like it's meant for folks a foot shorter than I am!  Our toilet was literally so close to the wall I couldn't make my famous 'Thinking Man' pose when I'm sitting on the loo!  I really couldn't open my legs more than an inch or two.  Plus, the toilet seat itself is not the extended seat type.  Bit on the standard size.  The shower?  The shower head was so low at it's highest point it was hitting me in my neck!  Ha Ha Ha.  But even with these minor annoyances the bathroom was clean, and the era charm of the hotel as a whole kept me smitten.

    Another plus?  The Mayflower is directly connected to the Westlake Center (a shopping center of sorts), which had easy access to a food court, and the monorail that goes directly to the Space Needle!  It was so convenient for us, I couldn't be more grateful.  It took a load of pressure off us being first time visitors to Seattle and all.  All we had to do to make our touristy run to the Space Needle was go down to the hotel lobby, go up a flight of stairs, make a right, make a left, then make one more right to go up the Westlake Center escalator to reach the monorail.  Kudos for this.

    For the wifey and I, this was the best possible place for us to stay on our first trip to Seattle.  Easy Light Link Rail ride from SeaTac Airport to downtown, short walk to the hotel, short walk from the hotel to attractions like the Pike Place Market, and super convenient access to the monorail to the Space Needle.  Nicely appointed rooms, great price.  What more could a tourist ask for?  Mayflower Park Hotel...I will be visiting again soon!

    This is the first time we stayed at this hotel. It is an older hotel with smaller rooms but it is very clean and actually really cute (in my girlfriends words).  It's in a great location to access downtown. Has a nice upscale bar and a restaurant (which we didn't visit). There's a Buffalo Wild Wings right next door and we are beer and wings type of customers. Would we stay here again? Absolutely.

    We started a new tradition, a stay-cation in Seattle the weekend after thanksgiving.  This year we wanted to be closer to the tree lighting and the fireworks at Macy's.  The Mayflower is right across the street from Macy's and right next to Westlake, so we booked it.

    Quaint, is the best way to describe this hotel.  Quaint and old.  Thin walls too, Oy vey, nothing worse than waking up to people humping -- loudly -- next door.  Room was tiny, bathroom was very tiny.  No refrigerator.  No ice machine on our floor, we had to go down to the next floor, or take a quick trip down the stairs -- which meant going outside in 30F degree weather.

    I've read some reviews of nice views here, I wish I asked for a better view.  We were directly across the street from Macy's. Our view consisted of Macy's dirty building and the homeless huddled in the alcoves.  Our morning wake-up alarm consisted of the Seattle Police using the whoop whooop siren to clear the homeless encampments at dawn.

    Here's a kick, when we were checking out I commented that the room lacked a refrigerator and the clerk says, 'We have them, you could've asked"  Next year, I'll suffer the 3 block walk to the tree lighting from the modern and up to date Hyatt.

    The Mayflower Park is conveniently located next to Westlake Center, which has shopping and a $2.75 train to SeaTac. The hotel was built in 1927 and although it does not have a waterfront view, it's only a few blocks away and is centrally located to shopping, restaurants, and Pike Place Market.

    Rooms are nice and are remodeled. I liked that you could open the window enough to get the exterior breeze. Outside of the restaurant, Andaluca which was great for breakfast, I didn't use the amenities. Parking is spendy @ $35/night.

    The Mayflower Park did make a billing error but David at the front desk provided excellent service via phone  in correcting this.

    I'd definitely stay here again.

    Sadly, disappointed with my last stay at the Mayflower. I've stayed here three times prior, and have always LOVED this small boutique hotel (especially when it used to have Aveda products back in the mid 2000's). Unfortunately, my last experience was a huge disappointment and I don't need to stay here again - will look for more cool, hip places.

    First, the area is in a nice centralized location that is easily within walking distance of Pike's Market, the Sky Tower, and the convention center. That said, the hotel rooms are generally VERY small. I was willing to put up with this in my last few stays as I loved the ambiance, but management must have seriously changed.

    They changed the toiletries to bulk style (e.g., pump action out of an attached plastic bottle to the wall). While I typically like this for the eco-friendly approach, the pumps were designed to save on dispensing - you literally had to dispense the pump 10-15 times to get enough soap or shampoo to lather up. A previous review stated that the lotion splashed out at a weird angle - and she was right. One squirt of the lotion and it ended up on my left breast. For real.

    Next, the front desk staff. I was there for a meeting (which was in the conference room down in the basement), and wasn't able to check in early despite request. John, the front desk manager was a jerk on the phone, and IMO, had terrible customer service that made me feel invalued. Once I eventually checked into my room at 6 pm (having had to wait all day), my room reeked of smoke. I called to ask for a candle or air freshener, and house cleaning came in and sprayed it with Febreeze (doesn't cut it). When I came back several hours later after dinner, my room STILL reeked of smoke; I immediately asked to change rooms, despite having unpacked everything.

    The good thing - nice bar, great bloody Mary's, and great wait staff in the bar.

    Overall, the experience, hassle (of changing rooms), and poor customer service has turned this once-LOVER-of-Mayflower against it. Wouldn't stay here again.

    I stayed here for a business trip, my room was on the 7th floor, and a view of Macy's.   Services was 5 stars as the doormen and the receptionists wer nice.  They provide complimentary umbrellas as it was raining when I was there.  The room was very small, but that was fine since it was a business trip.  I prefer larger rooms, if on vacation.  The bathroom was way too small.  You had to close the door to use the toilet, otherwise, you couldn't sit. All of my makeup, curling iron, etc kept dropping on the floor since there's no counter space.  The first night, I couldn't sleep. By 3 am, I looked out of the window to see where the noise was coming from.  All along Macy's there were drunks and all other sorts camped out doing all sorts of things that probably wasn't legal. I would not advise walking in the evening around this hotel. I may consider staying here for business again, if the city improves the safetiness of the areas.

    I recently spent 7 nights at this hotel.  This is the first Yelp review I have ever posted.  I cannot express how enjoyable my stay was due to the wonderful staff at this hotel.  The location is perfect, the staff were perfect, the ambiance was perfect.  It's classy, elegant, historical, and charming.  Every time I walked in, I was greeted by delicious fragrances from the restaurant on the lobby floor.  The hotel is one block from the light rail, shares a building with a mall with restaurants and shopping, and also shares the building with one of the two terminals for the Monorail.  The only criticism I can offer is that the bathrooms are tiny.  However, the amenities and quality of towels and robes make up for the lack of space.  I would recommend this hotel to anyone who visits downtown Seattle.  It will definitely be the hotel where I stay each time I visit Seattle.

    I stayed here for four nights and loved it.  The staff was friendly, helpful, and went above and beyond to make you feel welcome.  They provided incredible dining recommendations and places to see.  The room was very clean and had a nice view of the ocean.  The hotel is centrally located - only minutes to Pikes Place and about a 20 - 25 minutes walk to the Stadium.  No car required as we walked everywhere.  
    I would highly recommend this place and would stay again if I returned to Seattle.

    Rooms are small, bathroom way too small and the bed is not that comfortable.  We had a good view of the city and that's about it...not much more I want to say that is good.

    I can't stop laughing.  My lady is doing her hair and comes to find out the hair dryer is broken...she keeps her cool and calls the front desk to have them bring another.  The one they brought has a broken switch...she lost her cool!

    My beautiful bride and I were very excited to have our ceremony and reception at the Mayflower Park.  Throughout the process Andrew answered all of our questions in a timely manner and helped us stay on track for the months /weeks /days before the event.  His experience and suggestions were invaluable.  

    The day of the event started out stressful but the hotel staff went above and beyond to ensure everything went perfectly (the statement goes for everyone working the hotel that day, valet, bell desk, front desk, Oliver's staff) and did an even better job at keeping me at ease. Dante and the staff anticipated our every need and herded the wedding party to each location seamlessly (lining up for the procession, getting us from point A-Z etc.).

    We had the ceremony in the banquet room and the reception was in the fireside room.  When we initially met with Andrew, we had a basic idea of what we wanted for the ceremony (candelabras, lighting, flower placement, etc.). All the little details that we asked for and ones that we did not think of were addressed perfectly. All of the flowers and candles from the ceremony were moved to the reception and arranged effectively around the room.

    The Fireside room has two medium rooms adjacent to it. We used one room for the dance floor (hotel provided) and the other was for a more relaxed feel. The hotel has a stereo system that was setup to play in all three rooms variable sound output.

    We opted to do heavy appetizers rather than a sit down meal. This allowed us to use the space more effectively.  The catering will not disappoint! We had a large variety of options ranging from cheese plates to salmon to NY strip sliders.  The devilled eggs, steak sliders and the mini grilled cheese with tomato jam were a favorite among the guests!

    Transportation options for the venue couldn't be any sweeter.  The Link, Monorail and Metro are within a block from the hotel.  The hotel provides free valet for your guests the day of the event.  They also do room blocking for out of towners.

    Outstanding customer service and attention to detail in every way!  The staff went out of their way to accommodate our special arrival time table and insuring every detail/request was handled. The hotel is warm, welcoming, and a great location.

    A five star hotel...!
