Neighborhoods: Central Business District, Downtown
great hotel – This hotel is just awsome it has everything & much, much more. The service there is excellent. I stayed there 1/15-1/19/2007
Good place to meet if you can find a seat – This has become a good place to meet up with friends downtown, especially if you work downtown. The vibe is good for maintaining conversation and the drinks are good enough to keep you there. I try to go early to avoid getting stuck in the congestion that occurs when it starts to fill.
Wedding night bliss – We stayed here on our wedding night this September and were really impressed. The hotel itself is beautiful and very elegant feeling. The staff was friendly and made a special effort to see that we were happy on our special night. We were a little shocked at the price but, the little extras and beautiful surroundings was worth that and more and I will look forward to many anniversary nights at this beatiful place!

great fireplace--dog friendly! – they actually let me take my great dane in the bar while i had a drink with a date! the staff was great and the drinks were strong.
Seattle's Worst Service - Inconsiderate/ Rude/ Indifferent – The staff at the W was rude from my first day through the last.
Everything at this hotel is outsourced. If there is any kind of problem the staff will do nothing about it. Their standard saying is, "That is not a part of the hotel - we can do nothing about it."
The Internet support is $15/day per computer. Prepare to deal with a WIRED connection as there is NO WIRELESS connectivity in guest rooms. Only one computer can be connected at a time to the WIRED LAN.
Parking (next to the hotel) is also outsourced. It is $10 for the first thiry minutes. This is direct billed to your room.
The temperature controls were broken in the room. We were sweating for about 5 days straight. Although we complained to the front desk - again, nothing happened.
The TV was supposidly digital. There was non-standard programming and a minimum number of channels.
I was billed for phone calls I did not make and had to argue at the desk upon checkout for the bills to be cleared.
Lastly, I forgot something in the hotel and when I called later they said they would get someone right up to the room to find it and send it to me. Nothing happened. No return call with the status. After three more phone calls I found out they did not do anything and it was too late. Then they told me "it is not important" and just before hanging up on me.
Regardless of where you chose to stay in Seattle there has to be something better than this. I will NEVER stay there again. Anything is better.
True Luxury in Seattle – My husband and I went here for our anniversary and from the moment we checked in to the moment we left, the service and ambiance was amazing. I didn't want to get out of bed every morning, the bed was so comfortable! We ate in the restaurant and had drinks in the lounge and the experience was both relaxing and fun. We'll be making this an annual tradition.
Art deco with sass: This hip, highly stylized property offers the luxuries of a high-end hotel with a Gen-X twist. – The Scene
W Seattle starts setting the scene right out front, where a black placard labeled "Wheels" directs guests to valet parking. The lobby is retro art moderne: lots of frosted glass, brushed stainless steel, black- and plum-stained wood and an insistent alt-rock music score. This isn't your grandmother's hotel--the clientele tends toward the young, trendy and fabulous, and the hotel's atmosphere matches.
Rooms are sleek, comfortable and practical continuations of the modern theme with black and white Seattle photos decorating the walls. One inspired feature is a window-seat settee bathed in natural light; a fun treat is the minibar's candy box, stocked with lollipops and candy cigarettes. Sinfully comfortable beds have pillow-top mattresses and goose-down comforters. Along with DirecTV, guests can browse the hotel's DVD library for films from "La Dolce Vita" to "Mary Poppins," or peruse the CD library for alternative favorites like Beck and Nirvana.
HORRIBLE SERVICE – The second I walked in there was nobody to greet me and I had to get their attention. The front dest agents were just standing there giggling to theirselves, they were VERY unprofessional. I had to wait 10 minutes to even see a room becuase the bellman was busy. You have 26 floors YOU NEED MORE THAN ONE BELLMAN. I saw a room which I was very unimpressed with... where's the color? Where's the style? The corner king I saw was not worth the money. The bellman trash talked other hotels, that does not help when you are attempting to be professional. All in all I would stay there ONLY if they replaced the staff, got some color, and did some repairs.. all the furiture was trashed and beat up. Even the Front Desk which is most important.
Swanky and ultra-modern comfort – A hip, urban lobby playing music like Coldplay or Hooverphonic. A big fireplace with cozy, modern couches and chairs. These are elegant touches - and the rooms are equally stylish. Deep brown carpeting, a long hallway decorated with mirrors or big black-n-white city photos, nice Bliss bathroom products. A tad pricey but fun to splurge. The Earth and Ocean restaurant was lovely too, yes it is pricey (check prices online) but worth the price if you enjoy natural gourmet food. They were angels to serve us dinner on Sunday in the lounge, even though they were basically closed. Excellent service too. Only downside to the hotel was our room view, a parking lot. The blinds didn't close all the way so we got a little ambient light. But otherwise a great experience.
Sexy starts with "W" – There is no better hotel in the city to start a romance or fan the fire of an existing one. The staff gives you the same attention as a rock start or someone even more famous than Steve Poole. The bar is a great launch pad into the other city hot spots. I've been here for New Years, Valentines, random occassions. I've stayed at "W" Chicago, San Diego and Seattle. They NEVER disappoint!
