unacceptable bad experience

the hair dryer was not working, and they never give me the new one until I check out. Also the telephone was not working at all. especially, the front-desk employee for the night is impolite and rude.

Convenient to town and stadium

Good location to downtown with shopping and to the stadium for the game. Young and hip vibe. They need put information about the amenities in the room and the information about the TV channels was about 6pt. font, much too small to read. Lastly the parking garage is too short for my standard 1/2 ton pickup, arrive in your passenger car.

Nice brunch at http://cafecampagne.com/ A French bistro/café near Pike's Place Market. My wife thought of Frasier Crane while I thought of " 'Allo 'Allo!" I had the crab quiche, piping hot and creamy smooth in the center.

A Hotel With Humanity

My wife fractured her leg by tripping on a curb at 5th and Pine and was taken to Harborview Hospital. I called the assistant manager of Motif to request a check-out one day early that was through a 3rd party. She was able to organize the refund which was very very helpful. We will stay again at the Mofit.

great downtown location

The Motif was a beautiful hotel. The only con was the parking garage was confusing. Great view from our room, walking distance from everything. And the staff was very friendly.

Lovely and in the "thick of things!"

This is a very chic looking hotel with easy foot entry and elevators. It is clean and convenient to many stores, shopping, attractions. Still, the use of a car might be necessary to get you around unless you understand the bus system.

If you are planning on taking ferries, boat tours, other tourist activities, do your homework on line first to make out the best use of your time. Some boats sell out in advance.

Name Change

This was a great hotel. We were very impressed by the decor and cleanliness. We LOVED the huge shower heads and noticed they definitely had a water softener or something. The restaurant on the 5th floor looked really nice too, although we didn't eat there. The location is perfect for visitors who could easily walk to great restaurants, Pike Place Market, with close walking distances to the light rail station back to SeaTac and the monorail to the Space Needle. The only con was that when I originally made my reservation we reserved for the "Red Lion Hotel". We walked around everyyywhere around the block of 5th ave. and could NOT find our hotel until I used Google maps to tell me it was a building directly in front of us the whole time but with the name change "Motif" Hotel. They said they changed the name literally a month ago, but we wished we were at least notified of the change to save us all the trouble with our luggage walking around downtown.

Family vacation

Place was in a perfect location and the staff was helpful and always on top of it!!! My only negative comment was the elevator was so loud - I could feel it and hear it go up and down at night. The other thing was the dresser was not leveled so the drawers opened up all the time- even on its own. Water view was awesome - make sure that if you are on lower floors that you are not over frolic- very loud and could hear the music from the 19th floor.
