Coast Bellevue Hotel
Same but different each time
LOVE THE STAFF working here… they made my work trips so much better. It was wonderful to see the same faces 3 – 4 times a year. They were helpful, kind and resourceful.
I was frustrated with being put in very different room locations Given I traveled several times a year, I would have like the same room area – instead I was on different floors, facing different ways, etc etc. It bothered me. After my first visit, I asked for quiet and facing the courtyard – and it was always a ‘negotiation’ each time I arrived…. something about computer assigned rooms? sigh.
I dont believe the pool was open once when I visited – not sure I would have used it, but I dislike when things aren’t working.
Yay! Updated Suites!
I have noticed a few reviews on here about the dated carpet/furniture in the suites. I was happy to find that those have since been replaced. Wonderfully updated with new tv, furniture and carpet. Now the rooms match the beautiful lobby. Great location for the hospital and downtown Bellevue without getting way to expensive. The staff is friendly and helpful. The food is affordable with good selection. Whole foods across the street is a BIG plus. I give it excellent based on the value/price.
Good stay at Coast Bellevue - handy location
With business in the Bellevue area, the Coast Hotel Bellevue has a very handy location. Front desk staff was quite nice, and checkin was very easy – they even let me check in a few hours earlier than normal checkin time. The room was fine (oddly enough, a rather old television set – could use some updating). They had a free breakfast in their restaurant which was nice. Parking is free. There is plenty nearby, including Whole Foods which is within very short walking distance.
Good location in Bellevue but...
Location was fine. However we were put in the outside annex of the hotel next to a covered pool. More like a motel than a hotel as there was direct access to parking lot and no secure entrance. There was no discount for these rooms, prices inline with the rooms inside. The rest of the hotel was fine, clean and they offered a wine hour which we did not go however drinks in the friendly bar after meetings was fine. Good service. Suggestion would be to secure an inside room if traveling by yourself.
Centrally located if you have biz in Bellevue
The hotel has a 3.00 PM check in policy; so ensure you are planning correctly. But the front desk staff was gracious enough to work things around and get us a room by 10.00 am when we came in. This hotel is centrally located in Bellevue; and if you have biz meetings in Bellevue this would make sense. But be sure you check with the hotel directly since the rack rate of the hotel is $149 when we checked it, but Expedia charged us $250 for a two guests room (two separate beds). There is a bar & grill along with the restaurant and its good.
