The Edgewater

Seattle, Seattle & Washington State

The hotel

Sitting right on top of Pier 67, this is Seattle's original waterfront hotel and quite the local landmark. It’s always been a quirky and cool spot, since it was built in 1962 — KISS parked their platform boots here and The Beatles once famously fished out of their hotel room window. We don’t recommend that, of course, but you can imagine the playful and chilled vibe that you get at the the Edgewater. Expect quirky, cosy rooms with beautiful views of Elliott Bay, happy hours showcasing amazing house concoctions, and a restaurant serving the freshest organic and local dishes. Take in a bit of live music at the weekend and dine outdoors to make the most of those water views.

Staff went above and beyond to be helpful and friendly. Food was great, and we spent a lot of time in the lobby where the view is beautiful and the restaurant staff were happy to deliver to the lobby area

When we booked our “water view” at a premium of 2x the typical rate I never would have imagined the views (see attached photos). Misleading doesn’t quite cover staring at a cruise ship parked right in front of your window. The hotel is located next to the Norwegian cruise line port.

When we booked our “water view” at a premium of 2x the typical rate I never would have imagined the views (see attached photos). Misleading doesn’t quite cover staring at a cruise ship parked right in front of your window. The hotel is located next to the Norwegian cruise line port. The whole thing is so outrageous it is comical. The hotel has a very bare bones feel. No gym, pool or spa. In the bathroom there was only ONE shower towel (what kind of hotel doesn’t give you a full towel set?). The toiletries are skimpy - no milled hand soap, no toiletry set. The staff is friendly but the service can be hit or miss. We ordered chamomile tea delivered to our room, and the front desk promised two pots. 15 min later a distraught lady who looked like she was just plucked out of the kitchen arrived at our door with two English Breakfast Keurig cups. The breakfast is, for all intents and purposes, unavailable, because you have to make a reservation several days in advance. While I understand dinner being open to non-hotel guests, not making breakfast available to your hotel guests means they have to find coffee and food elsewhere first thing in the morning. The location is good, not great. It’s a 15-25 walk to most attractions, but what you have to realize is that the hotel is built on top of a pier in the middle of a working port. It’s surrounded by other piers. The overall gestalt is industrial warehouse space. When we walked around we saw other other hotels in the downtown area that had better immediate surroundings. On the positive side, the lobby is nice and has nice views. The bike rental program works very well for getting around the city. Overall we wouldn’t stay there again when we visit Seattle, and we feel ripped off by the deceptive marketing. Read less

We paid for a water view and were given a room at the very end where we faced a pier and has a partial view of the water when the cruise ship parked at the pier wasn’t there. For the price we paid we were extremely disappointed. AC in the room wasn’t great either.

You can't beat the view at this first class hotel in Seattle! The staff are friendly, helpful and accommodating and the furnishings and view help put you in a vacation state of mind! Six Seven Restaurant & Bar are top-notch and definitely worth a reservation or two -- for breakfast & dinner!

Its a motel. A $400/night motel with a view of the parking lot. Rooms are old and is extreme need of an update from the circa 70s/80s decore. The rooms and carpet smell like your nana's room at the nursing home. Ok, I get it. the Beetles stayed here a 1000 years ago. Big deal. People want nice views, nice rooms, excellent restaurant… Read more

People want nice views, nice rooms, excellent restaurant (closed in July 2021 due to Covid?), an excellent lounge / bar (also closed). Many good options. Choose another place. Read less
