Motif Seattle

Seattle, Seattle & Washington State

The hotel

Bang on trend, downtown’s Motif Seattle isn’t just well-located, it’s also well-kitted out. We’re talking Amazon Alexa in your sleek and chic guestroom (just in case you want to ask for fresh towels or check out what’s happening in Seattle tomorrow). We’re talking travel musts, like a 24-hour fitness hub. And we’re talking uber-cool social spaces, like the popular rooftop deck — an urban patio that’s been strung with lights and features al fresco fireplaces, city views, and the Northwest Pacific menu of its fashionable Frolik Kitchen + Cocktails. All this within walking distance of favourites like Pike Place Market and the Pacific Place Mall.

The location is close to shopping and attractions like Pike Place Market, and there is the Elephant and Castle Pub down below level, which I loved because I'm a fan of that place. The hotel restaurant did not seem to have a large selection at the time I visited in October 2020, but I can't say if that is always true. Room was comfortable and… Read more

My wife and I traveled by tourism to Seattle and stayed in the Motif. It was a great experience. The lobby is beautiful and they have a lot of arts from local artists (as well as in the rooms). My wife and me loved it! The room was fantastic! Beautiful, cozy, spacious, very comfortable and clean. The view was astonishing! We had a great view of the Elliott bay and the sunset! The hotel is very prepared to deal with the COVID-19 restrictions and new requirements (masks, sanitizers, contact less, cleaning, etc). The location is also great. It’s on the city downtown and you’re a walking fistance from a lot of touristic attractions. Pike market, space Neddle, the Chihuly Graden & glass, 1st starbucks and stabuck reserve store, you name it. The staff is so friendly and very dependable. We love them! They helped a lot with good information regarding the city as well and which places were actually open or closed. There’s also a great restaurant at the hotel, Forlik. Amazing food and drinks! The Braised Beef Short Rib is one of the best dishes I’ve ever tasted!! I’ll defined stay there when I visit seattle again, the place exceeded all my expectations. Read less

Try this hotel when you go. Not too large so you feel comfortable with not so many people during Covid time. Great location. Easy to get around. Have parking rates too, if you rent a car. Overall excellent!
