At $72 a nite this hotel room is a steal! Of course it is off season in January. Cold and rain do not attract visitors to Seattle in the wintertime. This two year old hotel is clean, modern and has a tiny casino with an Asian restaurant attached to it. The hotel lobby has a restaurant serving standard American fare. A tasty buffet breakfast is also available for $15. Standard rooms are a nice size. Bathrooms are clean and white tiled. The seventh floor duplex suite is large enough to conduct small business meetings in while having the privacy of your own room on the upper level. The staff is their to please. Parking is $10 per day. Local restaurants worth a try are 13 Coins and Wally’s Chowder House.
