My husband and I have sampled at least a dozen hotels in Seattle, from deluxe to moderate, as we travel there frequently to visit family and friends. The Red Lion is a mid-range, busy hotel, with many groups coming and going.
The location is central and excellent, within easy walking distance of everything downtown. The rooms have all expected amenities, and the room-service breakfast (the only meal we had there) was delivered very promptly and was delicious. Service was always friendly.
Our only complaint was in regard to the ventilation system, and it was promptly and courteously fixed.
The gym is small, but well-equipped.
We would recommend this hotel to others, and intend to stay there again, as the location is perfect. It is not our favorite hotel in Seattle (The Inn at the Market is) but the value here is excellent.
