Over-rated, Over-priced – The view can't be beat -- looking down and out into Elliott Bay with its bustling harbor life is awesome. We were even visited by a porpoise in the morning. However, the room was tiny (much smaller than a Holiday Inn), the floorboards and beds squeak, the walls are thin (I could hear the floorboards and bed squeak in the room next door) and the decor is a cheap attempt at making the room "lodge-like." The $20 / night valet parking cost is Seattle-average. The $200 / night accomodation is overpriced for the space and room quality. Plus, the service is unimpressive. The staff seem there to collect a paycheck, not to play host or to provide a quality service.
Rating the lounge only – The decor is a combination of wood bark pillars with silver hardware highlights. A neat, if not overdone combination of earthy and modern. The drinks are poured well and the view is fantastic. Like any view lounge/restaurant in Seattle, you pay for the view. I'd go back but not before checking out some other spots first.
Tim Black – I was one of those that remembers the fishing from the room days. The next time I returned I did not know the place. I know each to his own but my wife and i thought the room was the most relaxing decors of any room we have ever stayed. We have stayed all over the world and would stay at no other hotel in Seattle. The young lady at checkin was so friendly and went out of her way to give me a room without a reservation. I highly recommend the hotel and plan to stay there again in September
The True Seattle Experience – Sleepless in Seattle? YES indeed and I love it!!! Who wants to sleep when you have the backdrop of ferry boats, rain drops on sliding glass door and a romatic fire in your room. Let's not forget being over the water, without tugboats engines you would hear almost nothing. If you want a hotel where the room is more then just a place to put the luggage jand you never need to turn on the tv, the Edgewater is the hotel for you!!!!!
EXTRAORDINARY POOR SERVICE! – I stayed here once before last year and got great service. But, I do not have a clue what happened to the management - it took me forever to check in, the girls at the front desk were rude, my waiter took thirty minutes to serve me then was told to go some place else. Lucky, the gift shop made for one pleasant experience. My husband and I will never stay here again. I think we will get more value at the Marriott where you can always count on quality service. Did I mention, the way they have parking set up was more headache than it wa worth? I had to wait thirty minutes to get my car!
Unbelievable! – I had the privledge of staying at the Edgewater last weekend and thought I was staying at the Playboy Mansion. I've never seen so many beautiful people all in one place! The service was amazing!! From Ryan who parked our vehicle and from Sean who checked us in to David the Night Manager taking the time to assist us with our bags. Everyone was a class act! The food in the restaurant was great for the price we paid. The view from our room was amazing! I have traveled all over the world and would never stay anywhere but here when I'm in Seattle. Thankyou Edgewater for an amazing time!
Stay someplace else – I have read the negative reviews on this hotel, and they complete agree with my experience at this over rated establishment. The positive reviews don't jive at all with the reality of this place, and should be suspect. The rooms are extremely small and cramped. The service is lousy. The restaurant is just plan weird, and not very good. And, when you complain, you get a bad attitude back at you! Like, you must be nuts or something! I do not recommend this place unless it was the last place to stay in Seattle.
