Hyatt Place Seattle/Downtown Hotel Review: This hotel’s downtown location is appreciated by both business and leisure travelers. Local corporations including Microsoft, Boeing, Amazon and Starbucks have accounts here, resulting in steady corporate traffic. Convenience-minded travelers appreciate the self-service check-in kiosks, as well as the proximity to the Washington State Convention Center and the Biotech Hub in South Lake Union. There is a refrigerated “Grab 'n Go” case in the lobby peddling fresh sandwiches, salads and bottled beverages, and Intimate Bakery Café serves specialty coffees and teas, premium beers, wines and cocktails. Leisure travelers can walk to popular attractions within blocks of the hotel, including the Space Needle, Experience Music Project and Key Arena. All of the large guest rooms offer 42-inch HDTVs, sleeper sofas, hair dryers, bathroom vanities with granite countertops and free Wi-Fi. Guests also enjoy a free hot breakfast featuring fresh fruit and oatmeal. The complimentary 24-hour fitness center houses modern cardio equipment. Parking is a steep $20 per night.
