Had a nice stay last week at the downtown Sheraton. Staff were all great. Not sure what the overall renovation status is for this hotel, but my room (on a 'preferred guest floor' as announced by the elevator every time I got on/off) had been redone recently, and was very nice, especially the bathroom.

I stayed at the Sheraton in September and agree that it's a nice property with nice lounge. It gets quite busy in the lounge, but the staff is on top of things there. I think I prefer the rooms, location and the general hotel overall than the Westin.

I'm thinking of doing a trip to Seattle during the Columbus Day weekend (Oct 5-8) with my wife. Which Marriott property should I be looking to stay at? Looking for something close to downtown/pike place market, either newish or recently renovated. Looking for something higher end - 4* or 5*.

I've only previously stayed at the Hyatts (Olive 8, Grand) and the Fairmont Olympic. It looks like it's the Westin or the Sheraton? Are either of them recently renovated? How are the beds?

GH and Olive 8 are stars (by domestic standards) -- far better than the SPG options. The Westin is dreadful, and the Sheraton (while some rooms have been remodeled) is a large, soulless factory with a lame club. I only stay there (reluctantly) in low season when rates are really low (sub-$100 BRGs). If you have status with Hyatt, GH or Olive 8 are a much better choice.

Question Which Property in Seattle?

Hi there all,

I have a one night layover in Seattle while returning from Vancouver returning to Ireland. Having never been to Seattle and a huge amount of properties I wondered if someone could advise which one to stay at? I am currently booked into The Westin Seattle.

Many thanks

This is too open of a question. Which property for "what'? Do you want convenient and close to the airport? Do you want luxury and to be pampered? Do you want the cheapest room possible?

The cheapest in downtown Seattle right now is the Four Points on Roy Street because the entire building is wrapped by construction scaffolding and exterior walling. If you get the courtyard room you won't hear any noise. And you're close to Seattle Center (which is far more interesting than downtown right now).

If you want to stay near the airport because of travel then I can recommend the Aloft as I just stayed there a week ago. It's a cheap and new hotel that suffices as a bed and a shower. And you can still walk to restaurants (not top quality).

So tell us what you're looking for and we can give a better answer.

The Westin is probably my least favorite SPG property in Seattle, it's old, tiring, and just not that great.
Like RM suggested... what is your goal, how much time do you have, and are you driving?

Hello and thanks for the reply. Iíve a great rate at the WESTIN and just wanted to stay in the centre and walk around really. Catch a bite and chill before the following day late checkout before heading to the airport for a 7pm flight. Thanks for the assistance.

Oh thatís not good to hear. Iím flying in from a trip to Vancouver and will have about 24 hours before my flight back to Ireland via Seattle. My inbound flight has me going directly into Vancouver hence the side trip on the return. Just looking to chill out. Got a great rate at the WESTIN but if itís not great I might look to move it to the Renaissance or Sheraton perhaps. Any suggestions?

My Best, Stephen

This is one of the few cities where I take the Sheraton over the Westin. Busy property due to cruise ships and tourists, but they take care of elites. One of my colleagues likes the Renaissance, but I have never stayed there. I do either the W or the Sheraton. Granted, if you're only there for 24 hours, it may not matter that much...

Agreed on Sheraton over Westin - but I'd also do W over Sheraton

Not sure if there are any interesting Autographs in town...?

Thank you for the heads up. I will take a look at the W as even for one night it would be preferable to stay at a good property. Appreciate the heads up.

Does anybody have experience at the Sheraton's 1 Bedroom Executive Suite versus their 1 Bedroom Hospitality Suite? They both list their maximum occupancy at 3 but also highlight that they don't allow Rollaway beds. Do both of these have sleeper sofas in addition to their king bed? Neither provides an explanation and the pictures included don't give any insight either.
