The great people make the Edgewater a great place. – You simply cannot find nicer people than those working at the Edgewater Hotel. We went to a wedding there Friday night, and everything was elegant, well planned, friendly and delicious. The view was amazing, and so was the salmon I had for dinner! Even better were the people, though. What a class act! They solicitously inquired about what they could do to make my 2-year-old son comfortable and well fed, and when I forgot my camera there, they were quick to return it to me. They even offered to mail it! What a great place! I can't say enough about the Edgewater. They really go above and beyond the call of duty!
Nice hotel – It's a nice hotel. The rooms are welcoming and pretty comfy. The room amenities are pretty nice. The service people are nice. I think the best part of the hotel is the view. It is soo pretty-elliot bay and the mountains, it's breath-taking. Of course, you should definately make sure that you get a room with a good view. The only downside is that it is pretty expensive.
Experience the Pacific Northwest – If your looking to experience the Pacific Northwest,it truly begins at The Edgewater. This land mark hotel is located within walking distance to most of the areas popular attractions. From the lobby to each guest room it has a clean but rustic ambiance. Many of the guest rooms feature a comforable sitting area with a fireplace and you can even choose a waterfront room that brings Elliott Bay right up to you. While the city life is near,the pace is relaxed. Quality service and amenities make this hotel one to remember.
Seattle's only waterfront hotel is distinguished by its enviable location. – In Short
Edgewater's owners deserve credit for jazzing up what was a fading property--recent remodels have created a wood-trimmed, rustic air. Inside, the mountain-lodge decor lobby is complete with a huge elk antler chandelier and stylized totem poles. With floor-to-ceiling windows and an unimpeded view of Elliott Bay, the Olympics serve as a magnificent backdrop. The rooms have pine furniture, fireplaces, flannel fabrics and on the west side, some of the best views in Seattle.
One of the best! – I have stayed at the Edgewater multiple times and will continue to do so. The service is above and beyond what you would expect or ever get from any other hotel. The food while spendy is great. Parking is costly but where in Seattle isn't? Thank gosh for the courtesy shuttle! The fireplaces are great too!
Not bad – Rooms can be small, but the fireplace was great. Bathrooms and decor were beautiful as was the view (waterfront). The walls are a little thin and the hallways can be loud at night.
Truly unbelievable – This place is a loud party place. It is noisy and offensive.
It is overpriced for what you receive . We ended up in a small room with a view, right on the river. The view was not that great because were so close to the water that it was making me sick. In fact, you would be better off at Holiday Inn the rooms are bigger.
The decor is odd I think they were shooting for a theme where technology meets nature, these two do not ever meet, it does not strike any positive chords just negative ones. The decor actually is symbolic to what is going on there, it is not peaceful or restful it is chaotic. So maybe the decor is a perfect fit.
If you like gourmet food and have discriminating tastes this place is not for you.
Seattle has great places to stay, but this is not one of them.
The Edgewater Hotel – My boyfriend and I have stayed there twice recently. Both times we had an excellent experience. We found the staff to be very helpful, going out of their way several times to assist us.
We will definitely be returning in the future.
Poor Service – I hate to say it because my wife and I have been long-time guests of the hotel but service has really gone down hill! Forget about getting a restful nights sleep as advertised! The service staff is so loud and parties seem to go all night. When I complained to the General Manager, I recieved no concern or apologies! We will not be back!
The nostalga of the old building is supersceded by poor service and rude managers!
Hidden costs – I was pleased with the service and ambence of the hotel. I paid and made reservations prior to my vacation is Seattle. To my amazement when I checked into the hotel, I found that parking my vehicle in the hotel lot cost me an additional $22.00 per day. Although hotel staff informed me that parking in the downtown area was rather expensive, I found it outrageous to charge guests to park. On top of that, I forgot to mention that valet parks your vehicle and retrieves it for you and this means tipping..lol. I could have used their shuttle service but they stop making trips at 9pm. And one last thing...before you use the hotel phone make sure you use a 1-800 phone card as I paid $106.00 for 4 separate phone calls for a total of 14 minues.
