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.

Joe at the front desk was exceptionally nice and very welcoming. Really appreciate his accommodations during our stay. The room was alright and the views from the hotel was very nice with the view of the water.

Restaurant and bar was not open as advertised. There is no breakfast available during the week! The front desk was very helpful. Great location. By Pike market and pier. Bed is comfortable and shower is spacious.

Do not stay at this hotel customer service horrible, no staff and no one to check you in. Had to wait an hour to find someone who worked there. No way to contact staff no one answers the phones and not even through live chat. Worse experience ever. The 1 person on staff in the hotel didn’t even apologize acting like nothing.

We stayed in a double queen room. The beds were by far the worst part. Old, saggy, and just really uncomfortable. Then there's the hotel's "stay over service" - it just means they won't come and clean the room if you're staying more than one night. You can request more towels (which I had to do three times).

Then there's the hotel's "stay over service" - it just means they won't come and clean the room if you're staying more than one night. You can request more towels (which I had to do three times). But...you have to take out your own trash, etc. We also didn't get enough coffee or cups for each morning. What a pain. Breakfast at the hotel restaurant, Frolik, was lousy and cost us $80 for two adults and two kids :( The location of this hotel in Seattle is great. Maybe they'll go back to regular room cleaning after COVID. And get new mattresses... Read less
