The Roosevelt, a Coast Hotel
Very nice and quaint
This is an older hotel, but very clean and staff is exceptionally nice. The location is perfect for seeing Seattle. When we left and were at the airport, we realized we forgot our sunglasses. We called the hotel and talked to Mona in lost an found and she mailed them to us. I would definitely stay there again
Nice ambience - great location
The Roosevelt is a bit pricey, but it’s smack dab in downtown Seattle and has a nice ambience and tasteful décor, so I can see why. I was upgraded to a suite, making the cost more reasonable. I was on the seventh floor so it was quiet, despite the busy traffic below. I would recommend this hotel simply for its location, but also for its friendly staff and pleasant look.
The Right Place
I don’t think I could have lucked in to a better place to stay after 17 hrs travel from New Zealand. Earlier I had gotten concise directions from the hotel on how to get there using the Light Rail Link which made the transfer from the airport simple and inexpensive. Location was great for visit down to the interesting Pike Place Market and then also close to the Monorail for a trip over the Seattle Centre area for Bite of Seattle and other attractions there. Staff were helpful and informative, and there are great food and refreshment options within a block of the hotel (separate shout out to Tap House Grill and it’s 160 quality beers on tap soon). My room size was fine for a single traveller maybe a couple may have issues, maybe not. Overall a great experience at a reasonable rate.
Great location. Everything else was average.
The location of this hotel is perfect: just six blocks from Pike Place market, and right in the midst of all the shopping and restaurants you’d want during a stay in downtown Seattle.
As for the room, it had an odd setup and collection of furniture. Our stay at The Roosevelt was nothing special. When we arrived to our room, there was a maintenance man inside. When we asked if we should come back later, he simply said “no” and hurried out the door and down the hallway. This was very strange. We came to find out later that our bathroom sink was leaking, so perhaps he was trying to fix it.
The room was clean (though somewhat outdated) and the beds were very comfortable. Plus, there was free wifi. However, if I was looking for a place to stay in Seattle again, I wouldn’t choose The Roosevelt.

Good to go
I recently stayed at this hotel for two nights. We were visiting Seattle for pleasure. The location is excellent , very central for shopping and good restaurants. A short walk to Pikes Place Market which is a fun place to visit. We had breakfast at Lowrey’s located in the market. It is cheap and cheerful with a nice view. Our room at the Roosevelt also had a nice view with comfortable quiet rooms, I would stay there again.
