We have family in Seattle but don’t like to impose on their small quarters. So we usually pick a hotel in the city center area. This was our first time at this Holiday Inn Express.

It’s an easy walk to the Space Needle, Chihuly and MoPop. Keep in mind the cross walks are at the

Hi 964williamj, Thank you for your candid review. I’m happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us overall, but it looks like we missed the mark on some things. We do understand that the breakfast area can get extremely crowded during peak hours. We are due for a renovation in the coming year, and are looking to expand that area of our property. Perhaps, you will find our Hotel a better fit at that time. Please don't hesitate to reach out myself or another team member if you ever need anything. Thanks so much, Lindsay H. General Manager

Larger room than I was expecting, with both a king bed and a foldout sofa and coffee table. The shower head was at a good height (often an issue for me), the TV had good picture quality, and there were extra outlets and USB charging ports, but only on one side of the (comfortable

Is there a drug store with walking distance of the hotel? Thanks.
Yes there’s a Walgreens literally a five/ten minute walk away. It’s en route as if your heading toward the space needle.

"Not all rooms have a view, some have view of the Space Needle, ours had a view of the alley. You need to request a room with a view."
