Friendly helpful staff. Very clean. Very convenient location. We were able to leave a day early. I would have appreciated the ability to cancel the second day myself instead of going through kayak. That became a bit of a hassle but staff tried very hard to accommodate us.
YOu can't stay any closer to the stadiums. It's close enough to downtown to walk anywhere, or catching a bus is easy. I was able to watch some of the pre-game activities at SafeCo field from my room. They upgraded me to a King Suite with a view for free (I booked a reg. King Room), the room was spacious, had everything I needed, and overall was very good for being one of the less-expensive rates I could find near downtown. I had to mark things down just a little bit as the drain in the bathroom was clogged just a little, so some of the water would accumulate. There was also an extra bathtub with a shower head (I was in a suite), so I just used that. Not a big hassle. One morning I was working from my room, and they had a fire alarm test at 11am. Not a big deal, but it was a minor annoyance as I had to rush to put clothes on, and scramble out of my room, only to run into maintenance who told me there was no emergency.
Rooms were clean, updated and quiet. Little expensive.
Super convenient for going to the Sounders game. Staff was friendly and helpful. Clean and safe place to stay. The bed and pillows were not comfortable, so we both slept terribly.
The large TV was awesome The view of the stadium was cool Good proximity to the stadiums Wifi sucked Bed was not the best pillows were really soft Slightly noisy with the trains running by and the hallway noise
Loved being able to walk across the street to safeco field. Our room was on the rotgut floor over looking the freeway and Piaget sound. A little noisy but not bad at all. Jacuzzi room was great! Liked it all. Thought the valet fee for the car park was a bit high. But not worrying about the vehicle was nice.
I liked the location (for the game) And I liked the restaurant and bar. I liked the pool and spa on the roof + extra towels. The staff seemed to be professional and courteous (except in one case) I didn't like the fact that a staff maintenance person barged into my room without notice or knocking then came face to face with me and backed up apologizing out the door without an explanation for the intrusion
The location was excellent and the staff was very good, We loved the bathroom and it's a size. The room could have been larger. Just the size of the room and the poor lighting.
The staff were very attentive and accommodating. The property has an interesting history, and evokes the feeling of that era
They had the most comfortable bed I have slept on.
Small, boutique-ish size and charm Beautiful historic turn of the century venue Great location Comfortable quiet rooms Outstanding food and bar drinks In general pleasant and professional staff Check-in was delayed but manager did an excellent job addressing the delay.
Weekend in Seattle! Found the Polar Bar in the hotel Lobby by accident on a previous trip and loved the ambiance! The lobby and bar remind you of days gone by, in a great way... I keep expecting a butler in black coat, white shirt, polished shoes to escort me to the "smoking room", like in the Titanic or something. Anyway, the decor is great, the staff at the hotel are very friendly, and the room I had was great! Corner room, king suite on the 7th floor! Wonderful view of downtown and Pioneer Square. We will definitely stay here again on a future trip.
I can't think of a better location to stay in Seattle. We were walking distance to Pike's Market, the ferries, restaurants. It was a bit tricky to navigate the public transit system. Still, the hotel staff were exceptionally helpful, professional, and cordial. The rooms were of a good size, and I'd recommend the upgrade to a bay view: lovely views of the ferries and sunsets.
The views, comfortable beds, spacious suites
Downtown parking was expensive. $37 per night for overnight valet parking at the hote.
The staff provided excellent customer service. I don't know that I've ever had such good service during a hotel stay. The rooms were clean and quite nice, the location is perfect for exploring the pioneer square area. The staff were very willing to suggest great restaurants and activities, and went out of their way to be polite and accommodating. I chose this hotel because of its reasonable price, and was pleasantly surprised with how wonderful it was. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.
I opted not to stay in a very luxurious conference hotel and stayed here instead for half the price. The BW was very clean, comfortable and conveniently located. Great cookies served in the evening, too! Had some trouble connecting to the wifi in my room but it seemed to work everywhere else in the building
Alex the cons eared was very helpful in booking our tours and getting cabs for us. The breakfast was very good.
Staff was very friendly Housekeeping staff needs to learn what the "do not disturb" sign means. Check out is 11am, I left the room at 8:50am for a few moments only to come back and find him cleaning my room. He threw out papers I had sitting on a table and dumped my 3/4 full bottle of wine.
Wifi and breakfast included. Located near many Seattle attractions (tours, waterfront, stadiums, etc.) in the walkable downtown. Friendly staff. Facilities could use some work, especially the elevator (slow). Room was a bit cramped, but overall good value.
Hotel is on register of historic buildings. Much nice woodwork, well appointed rooms. Pioneer Square nearby. Lots of food locations nearby. Close to Ferry Terminal and harbor area. Four blocks from Link station. Elevated freeway right next to building. Did not have a car, but understood parking was expensive. Many homeless people living in tents on street right outside hotel and folks sleeping in doorways making location less then optimal.
Very nice and responsive staff Slow elevator
Everything was great until we encountered front desk clerk at check in. There was a misunderstanding about our reservation and for a minute we thought he was not going to rent us the room. Luckily the other desk clerk stepped in and smoothed the situation. Other than that everything was great.
Pretty, historic 1910 building, with lots of history and character, most of what you see is no newer than 1950s. Leather stairs, ancient wooden railings, feels like walking back in time. Nice staff, good breakfast. Interesting art and stories. Natural light, eco-conscious. Interesting location (edge of China town, walking distance to Pike place, surrounded by excellent Japanese food). Price: given the low level of maintenance, it would have been a perfect place to crash for about half the price (which I've heard is about what it was 10 years ago). After tax, I paid just over $100 for a single room; totally appropriate for the region, but...If they're going to keep the current price, they should have enough money to fix up the basics. Here's my list of things I'd want fixed: 1. Shared bathroom doors should close and stay closed, as should the stalls. Locks on said doors would also be a good idea. 2. Carpet shouldn't block the door to a room when opening. 3. Do not use bungee cords to hold together the otherwise beautiful antique furniture. Likewise with the particle board. They can afford to do it right. 4. Better wifi coverage and reasonable speed. 5. Repaint dirty walls. I think you get the idea: the gorgeous, well-loved historical building deserves much better care, and so do the guests. I really hope that the owner, who seems to be a lovely person, takes this kind feedback to heart. A little attention to the basic details would go a long way to helping this place live up to its potential.
it was cozy and very close to where i had to go. that i had to walk down the hall to use the bathroom.
The Panama Hotel is truly a living museum that tells the story of the first Japanese American immigrants to the United States. Talking to the owner, I was impressed with her knowledge of Japanese American history and her desire to educate future generations
Staff is very helpful, great complimentary breakfast. It's a historical building with a lot history behind. Like living in a museum... The restrooms are one per floor, each room has a sink only. The hotel has an air of an old building.
I liked that the proprietor loves her property and is proud of it. I love the history of the property and the antique furniture all around. The staff is very friendly at the hotel. The tea room is very interesting to look at and the tea selection is amazing. They have complimentary bottled water available and reliable, free wifi. Easy walk from Centurylink Field. The hotel only has double beds, our room only had one two-pronged outlet (the hotel did loan us an adapter so I could plug laptop in), you can't get coffee on location before 8:00 am, and if you get more than one beverage with your "continental breakfast" at the tea room they charge you, (even if one of you didn't eat), there was a fire detector that needed a new battery that beeped all night, the key to the ladies bathroom was very very "tricky" and someone kept closing it (owner told me to leave it open so I wouldn't have to mess with key), the water that filled the tub was brown, the bed was so small and bouncy that I almost fell off twice, and the room had a radiator heater that doesn't warm up until morning, then sweats you out of your room. I didn't mind the stairs, but some might mind the two tall flights up to the lobby, then one more to our second room floor (basically, our second floor room was equivalent of fourth floor with no elevator.) This is at the most, a $70 a night hotel in any other city, but I guess the location helps? Keep vigilent if you walk around Chinatown at night. Fun and interesting, but you have to stay aware of your surroundings.
No bathrooms in room. No tv. No amenities. No clean sheets. Internet service was lacking. No elevator.
Good price, close to rail and bus system. Good price compared to the other hotels in Seattle. I traveled alone for business, so it was a good choice for me to stay here. However, I would not recommend for anyone other than solo travelers on business.
Cool place, I like these folks Maybe change the bed frames
