The Roosevelt, a Coast Hotel
The staff was very friendly, valet did great, and the hotel/room was well decorated and clean. The rooms are very warm and welcoming in their design and it’s in a great location. The Space Needle is only a 20-minute walk away. My only complaint is that the TV signal kept cutting out…they must use Time Warner Cable. Normally I wouldn’t care about the TV but there were some really great college football games on and I could barely watch them.
a great hotel
The location of this hotel could not be better for a traveler who likes to be close to everything. None of the major sights and shopping venues are more than a short walk away. The hotel is ideal for those that prefer the older style hotels. Rooms have high ceilings, are very soundproof, nicely furnished, all linens are of good quality and in excellent condition. Unusual is the fact that the windows can be opened to let that fresh Pacific Northwest air breeze through the room. Staff were very friendly, helpful and professional. I could not fault anything during an excellent 3 night stay.
I visited Seattle this month for a work retreat. We stayed at the lovely Roosevelt Hotel, and I was very happy with my experience. I don’t know what the cost was per night, since the owner of my company paid for my stay, so I cannot comment on this aspect.
The Roosevelt is approximately one block from the light rail system, and a few blocks from the monorail system. As a bonus, it is a short 15-minute walk to Pike Street Market as well. I loved how this hotel was centrally-located to many tourist attractions. As a visitor, I determined that the location couldn’t be beat.
My room at the Roosevelt was very tiny, with a tiny bathroom. However, I wasn’t visiting Seattle to just stay in a hotel room. Although the room was small, it was cozy. Everything seemed very clean and well-maintained.
The staff at the hotel was amazing. On Saturday, I decided to ask the front desk about going to the Chihuly Glass Museum. I spoke with a man named Jeremy, who was very helpful, and provided my advice on inexpensive transportation to this location. He recommended that I take the monorail, for a nominal fee, and he even gave me a map to find the monorail in proximity to the hotel. I was impressed with his demeanor and level of service.
On Saturday night, around 10pm, I experienced a plumbing problem with the toilet. I called the front desk, and they sent a worker, who arrived within 10 minutes. He resolved the toilet problem quickly and efficiently. I did not have to wait long, and the employees were excellent at resolving the issue.
I also love the Roosevelt, because there is a business center on the 2nd floor. I was able to check in for my Alaska flight from the computer there, and print my boarding pass. This saved me tons of time at the airport.
There are only a couple of things that I would like to see at the Roosevelt. One, I wish that there was a coffee shop, restaurant, or room service available. Upon my late arrival, I was starving and tired, and had to go to a Starbucks for some food. However, the Starbucks was across the street and down a couple of businesses. Also, I wish that someone told me how to work the elevator. You have to put your hotel key into a slot, and press the floor number. I didn’t notice this as first, and was wondering why the hotel was going to all different floors for pickups but didn’t drop me at my floor. Another guest saw my concern, and explained to me the protocol. However, I am grateful that there is a security measure like this on an elevator. I just wish that someone had mentioned it to me.
All in all, the Roosevelt Hotel provided a positive experience, and the staff members are 5 star. I would definitely stay there again!

…location, location…near oodles of stores…about 6 blks from PikePlaceMkt…across the street is Starbucks…a block away is the CheeseCakeFactory…..stayed here before…so quaint…staff super-nice & helpful…valet parking next door/convenient/extra fee…large clean room except when I moved the bedside table to unplug the clock-radio the floor/carpet was dirty….comfy beds. Bathroom is very small but serves its purpose. a/c works well. No restaurant in hotel but fresh coffee in the lobby in the mornings for a start…we’ll be back!

We really enjoyed staying at the Roosevelt hotel in Seattle. It is a beautiful, classic hotel with a wonderful staff. It has a great location within walking distance to many Seattle attractions as well as shopping and dining. We will be staying there again in the future.
