How to Get There
Got a good deal for this one, and as we were flying out of SEATAC the next morning, enroute to our honeymoon. this seemed like a good overnight hop. (we're from Vancouver, BC).
First off, the location, check in and parking..
It's nice and close to the highway, but far enough off that it's not heard. This made for a nice night, and quick getaway in the morning. That said, there's NOTHING else here. You'll need a car to come and go, and it's either a $12 Valet + tip, or $20 for the MASSIVE (empty) self parking lot. Not wanting to be bothered to tip a man 6 times, we just paid the $20 instead. I also prefer to be able to hop straight into my car when I'm flying out - something not possible when waiting for an early morning valet. Check in was simple and quick, and the desk staff were both polite and efficient.
The hotel offered a $25 food voucher, but the eatery we'd have preferred was closed Sundays, so we opted to head off property instead. As we were only there for one night, we didn't bother to take in any of the available amenities. Not even sure what was available.
On the Room...
The room itself was very nice. Though some of the furniture could use some general touching up, it was in good, clean condition. Our room overlooked the valet area. Though it provided no inspiring views, it remained quiet through the late evening and night. The ample bathroom and comfortable bed were a refreshing touch.
It'd have been nice to have a useable fridge; a minibar in a place like bellevue is probably unnecessary. We popped into the local Walgreens instead of partaking. We got ice from the very oddly located (and poorly labelled) ice chest near the elevator instead.
On the Clientele...
This place seems to attract the Audi driving golfer kind of crowd. If you're not sure what that means, you're probably one of them and would fit right in. Annoyingly, we're a pair who can afford luxury, but would prefer not to feel quite so stuffy - Which is how this property felt overall.
All that said, it was generally nice, but I would not stay there again, as it simply wasn't 'us'. The minor annoyances were enough to overtake the things we liked most. It's a pricey place - and if it's your style, it might be worth while. But if it's not, look elsewhere.
for the money you pay its is not worth it. The hotel is not close to anything so you would definitely want to have a car. When we tried to use the pool there are lessons that are going on and it was very busy. Because the hotel comes with a 25 dollars food credit so we decide to try one of their restaurant. The steak that i order was supposed to be medium rare but it was such poor quality that i couldn't finish. Next time i think I am going back to Westin or Hyatt. Those two hotels are much closer to the mall. Also the guy at the front desk was not helpful. He never mentioned to me about the food credit. I only found out from listening to the other people checking in.
Staying here atm and have to say was not expecting much after reading the poor reviews... Have to say we are having a fantastic time. The staff are friendly and helpful. I would definitely suggest upgrading to a refurbished apartment... ours is in the Leda 2 and extremely clean and has all the equipment. We are staying s/c which is the way to go in my opinion as the spa shop is on site there is lots of restaurants very nearby and it's cheap. The only thing I can say is that the apartments have thin walls and due to the way the blocks are placed around the pool noise could be an issue at night in height of season. Bring some earplugs :)
The facility is very nice. The shuttle was awesome. A Lincoln with massage
in the back seat. A great way to get to Daniel's Broiler. There was a complimentary $25 at bar in the evening and $15 for breakfast and the valet was $12, so very affordable.
Hotel room and environment is decent. However, overnight car park is charged (daily)separately, and I think this is ridiculous as it costs $12 or $20 + additional tax for something that a hotel guest can do at the huge car park just 10 meters away. I stayed for 4 days, and the parking alone is $88!
Don't expect much as well in the room. Plus the hotel "breakfast" (if you can even call it that) is practically non-existent.
