Best Rooms: There are three views available from the property: the stadium view, the downtown and Elliott Bay water view, and the inner courtyard view. The best view is the downtown and Elliott Bay view from the suites on floors 7 - 9.
Best Rooms: Due to the hotel's location and the fact that it's only 4 stories high, your views will consist mostly of a neighboring park or other buildings.
Best Rooms: The Waterfront rooms provide the best views of Elliott Bay, especially from higher floors. If you book a Elliot Bay View room, be sure to request one that's looking straight at the bay, because there are many rooms in this category that don't actually provide a good view of the bay.
