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.

This hotel obviously was previously a business building. Few things that are not logistically right for a hotel. Comfort - 3 This place try’s very hard but seems to miss the mark. Having a in room “Alexa” is nice but it is not set up or useable. The rooms are roomy but the design is a little distorted. Lastly, parking is a hassle, in a separate building and needs a walk through a dingy alley. On top of the walk, it is not accessible and a pain to carry luggage to the lobby. Service - 3 Staff seems to be very green and old without much experience. Location - 4 In the heart of downtown Seattle, more in the northeastern side so a walk to the pier may be a little far. Shopping in walking distance and several restaurants near the area. Will try other locations before I come back. Read less

The concierge was very friendly and personal upon our arrival. The room was spacious and clean and they give you two free bottles of water in your room which is great. The location is fantastic for walking around and exploring downtown. Just blocks away from Pike Place Market, Pacific Place and tons of shops and restaurants.

From the moment we stepped inside this hotel we understood why it is a four diamond award winner. Our concierge Gene was completely amazing. He went above and beyond every time he saw us. Gene is a true asset to this property. The room was well decorated. The view was breath taking. This property provides a lot of amenities. The British pub attached to the outside bottom of the hotel was delicious and had a great atmosphere. Everything was super easy with check in and checkout. No issues at all. We will definitely be back. Read less

The concierge was very personable and helpful. The room was tastefully decorated and very clean. Nice big tub. We had one of the top floors, so we had a lovely view of the water. Very attentive staff in general. Felt like a boutique hotel experience.

I would like through this review to give a big shoutout to Gene. He is one of the most dedicated and passionate person about his job that I ever met. He welcomed everyone with a big smile and helped with everything needed in a very professional manner. Therefore, I can say that the service at Motif was excellent.
