The Roosevelt, a Coast Hotel
Lovely Hotel = Great Stay
We really enjoyed our stay at The Roosevelt. The staff was very accommodating; they couldn’t have been nicer or more welcoming. The building is older, but very well kept and in a great location… especially if shopping is your thing. The room and bath were clean, small (older building) and charming. The bed was notably comfortable. We would stay there again for sure.
Breakfast at CJ’s Eatery on 1st, Cheesesteak at Tat’s Deli on Yessler, Latte at Moore on 2nd, Pizza at Alibi Room on Pike, Whiskey Bar and Rocco’s on 2nd for drinks.
Best Location for Downtown Walking
Prior to an Alaskan cruise we stayed at The Roosevelt. What a pleasant surprise! We had never used the light rail from SeaTac but tried it this time. $2.75 one way each and no traffic jams. The last stop is Westlake center which is only 1 block from The Roosevelt. Fantastic. Great service from the staff and clean comfortable room. No in-hotel restaurant but you are just minutes from everything downtown. About a 10 minute walk to Pikes Market, Nordstrom & everything else is right across the street or within 2 blocks. Our room was on the backside and no traffic noise at all. We will definately stay here again! Easy $20 taxi to the dock. (included tip)
I was in Seattle for a conference and found the location to be PERFECT! It was just a few steps from the conference center and not far from restaurants and a nice walk to Pike Place Market and other shopping opportunities. The staff was very friendly and welcoming and although my room was next to the elevator, my stay was extremely quiet. The bathroom floor needed a good cleaning. The sheets and towels smelled fresh and clean and I appreciated the smoke free environment.

Very nice boutique hotel
Over the years during visits to Seattle I have often stayed at this hotel because of it’s location within walking distance to Westlake Center where you can take the monorail to the Space Needle and to Pike Street Market. Also the staff has always been very nice and helpful as they were this time when I stayed there on September 7-8. And considering the outrageous room rates at most of the hotels in downtown, the Roosevelt is very reasonable. The difference I noticed this time was the rooms seemed smaller which was not a problem. The problem was the bathroom seemed to have been cut in half. There is no counter space–only a pedestal sink. There is a small shelf over the toilet where they store extra toilet paper and their complimentary amenities but between my son’s and my toiletry bag we had a problem finding space. There are 2 towel rings which we used for our bath towels so we had to shove the hand towels between the sink and the wall. Other than that we had an enjoyable stay and would definitely stay there again.
Very pleasant experience all around
The Roosevelt felt welcoming from the moment we stepped through the doors. Beautiful decor, friendly, pleasant staff, clean (smelled good). The rooms, while a bit small, are full of character and immaculate. I love a hotel that has character. I would much rather stay in a place that is unique than a typical franchise that has a standard look not at all in keeping with their location. The Roosevelt offered everything we wanted and needed in a hotel. And also – location is perfect! I could see Nordstrom from my window!
