An all-suite convention center hotel where downtown and Capitol Hill merge.
Although this comfortable hotel is just one block from the convention center, it is often overlooked because it isn't quite in downtown proper. Traveling execs in need of affordable lodging don't know what they're missing, beginning with the extra-spacious accommodations. The in-the-know clientele that stays here includes conventioneers, business travelers, groups and occasional tourists. The majority of the 195 accommodations are one-bedroom suites. Since the building was originally constructed to house condominium apartments, each room has a full kitchen and living room-sized sitting area. The large bedrooms have king or queen beds, and the views range from downtown to the Space Needle to Capitol Hill. Amenities include free Internet, flat-screen TVs and clock radios with MP3 hookups. The hotel's 24-hour shop sells TV dinners, midnight snacks and medicine. Complimentary offerings include a hot Suite Start breakfast and weekday evening Welcome Home wine reception with hot entrées and light fare.
