Take just one more step toward Puget Sound and you’ll be all wet — maybe that’s why there are so many fireplaces at The Edgewater Hotel. The first is under a freestanding stone chimney outside, while two gas fires flank the lobby interior. Antler chandeliers, mounted fish sculptures, tree stump coffee tables and rustic wood beam ceilings lend a warm cabin-chic vibe to the common areas. And all the Northwest coziness balances the views of inky Elliott Bay through large picture windows.
Bed and Bath
The hotel’s Northwest decor reminds guests exactly where they are. Tree branches are mounted on the walls to resemble antlers, and monochrome linens adorn beds. Renovated bathrooms with clawfoot tubs, slate floors and onyx vanities add a decidedly modern touch. Only the Beatles suite breaks rank, commemorating the Fab Four’s stay in 1964, when they playfully tried to fish out the window of their room.
In-house eatery Six Seven gets creative with its seafood, pairing poached shrimp with sweet potato hash, and mussels with smoked bacon. Happy hour small plates and rock ’n’ roll–inspired cocktails (such as the vodka-based Back in the USSR) will chase away the Seattle chill. A lobby shop is stuffed with eco-friendly baubles, including the hotel’s line of rubber duckies. That whimsical attitude is infectious — even to the elevators, whose cars are decked out in an under-the-sea LED display.
In the Area
Outside the hotel doors is a working waterfront with more docks than restaurants. A short hike uphill to Belltown earns travelers a selection of boutique cocktail bars and small plate bistros. Stop in at Black Bottle for gastropub-inspired tapas and flatbreads; angle for a seat on the popular patio if the day is sunny. Nearby, Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen created an avant-garde temple to music and science fiction at the Experience Music Project. And, of course, Pike Place Market, the fish-throwing mecca of crafts, fresh veggies and local flowers, demands a visit, no matter the weather.
How to Get There
Although the hotel has had substantial renovations and the public areas are very nice but somewhat dated the only thing not average about it was the price. Having said that, the location, right on the water and immediately adjacent to Victoria Clipper pier could not have been better: Centrally located and an easy walk to Aquarium, Space Needle, Pike's Market, and NCL cruise line terminal.
Although the Hotel acknowledged in writing our request for a quiet room when we booked for some reason when we arrived after four p.m. they could not find our reservation. They quickly rectified that problem and gave us a pretty quiet room on the top (fourth) floor with a pretty decent dock side view but it took about an hour and a half before room was ready.
Food at restaurant was OK and eating on deck was very enjoyable but our experience with wait staff was somewhat mixed, as noted by other reviewers.
Hotel was pretty romantic with its history and ambiance...we were celebrating our anniversary so had a good time overall.
I have stayed at this hotel twice and my room was not ready until 30 to 45 minutes after the announced check in time of 4pm. It is a great location and stay, but for those that are traveling and expect for your room to be ready I would call ahead to ensure.
Location worked out very well for us, most of the attraction were walking distance.
The hotel lounge and bar has plenty of seating with ocean view. You can also sit outdoor, they have heaters and provide blankets.
Tips for you: If you do not want to or do not have time; purchase coffee in their gift shop and sit in the the lobby with beautiful ocean view.
Restaurant service: was very poor and very slow. We ordered coffee and had to ask for spoon for milk and sugar...would you bring it at one time?
Breakfast omelette bacon did not feel fresh. When we brought it up to our waitress' attention she said "oh" and left .... Wow thank you for your help lady.
Room: The hotel has been renovated, the rooms and bathrooms however the AC was making laud noise every time it started and we could hear the same issue from adjacent room. When we changed the temperature one degree the fire place started...oh boy what the joy...The room had an odor and there was dust or web hanging from the ceiling.
Staff: I did not find staff friendly or helpful or knowledgeable , the front desk clear was asking me 3 time what is my room number. All I wanted to know if I have a balance due.
Event though we got discounted rate which were still high for what we got, we would NOT come back.
As I said just because they charge high prices it does not mean they are high end hotel!!! They are trying to be something they are not.
There are a lot of good things about this hotel, the ground floor is beautiful, the staff are friendly and helpful.
But, we made a mistake and booked a city view queen room. Apart from being one of the most expensive hotel rooms that we have ever booked this is the smallest hotel room that we have ever stayed in anywhere in the world. There isn't space to walk round the room. We can't even unpack our suitcases. It is not the luxury the price suggests. The heating is a fire. If its on the room is too hot, if its off the room is too cold. As I write I can hear a literally half mile long freight train passing 50 yards away. OK, there was a warning once we got to our room and they even put ear plugs in the room. Do you want to wear ear plugs in bed?
Overall, if you are looking for a good hotel and not just one where the Beatles stayed 50 years ago, I suggest you dont stay here - just come and have a drink, its cheaper!!
Very disorganised on arrival after 4pm check in time, said that they were not expecting us as booking had been made for August yet this was our 6th hotel we had stayed whilst touring Canada and USA. Staff were frantic trying to clean rooms to enable to release those rooms to which seemed the more you complained the quicker you would get your room. Told would be half an hour and not later than an hour however still not ready after an hour and a half.
Room with water view - was a room with pier and side of ship view on two days and pier and stack of pallets fore the remainder.
One concierge whilst I waiting at the desk to be served ignored me completely and preceded to hold the entrance door open to a new guest just arriving even though they had not even got out of the car, to which after two minutes then gave up and went off to the outside desk to which another concierge happened to then come into the building and dealt with me.
The corridors are a fire risk either being blocked by numerous trolley full of linen and towels or food trays from in room dining . seemed little thought that in the event of a fire and smoke that these things would set fire and cause escape routes to be blocked or tripping hazard.
Noticed also the waste bins outside had bags of waste dumped by the bin and not in the bin therefore attracting birds
This was the certainly the hotel that I would least wish to return to as reception staff did not make you feel special or welcome during your visit even though those cleaning the rooms always smiled and said good morning when passing them in the corridor.
