What is the appearance of the hotel? Check the entrance and reception
The hotel is only 3 stories tall, but there are 146 rooms so it is very big.
The entrance seen from inside the hotel.
There was an information board in the lobby.
The front desk seen from the lobby.
I checked in around 12 o’clock at night, but there was a staff at the front desk, so I was able to check in right away.
It is nice that there was a free coffee and tea service at the lobby.
Front floor elevator hall. There are only two elevators.
Inside of the elevator.
Floor number panel.
Guest room floor elevator hall.
My room was the last room in the hall way, so I had to walk quite a while to get to the room. As the building is old, the corridor without windows was dark.
What it is the Standard Room like?
Room entrance door.
The building itself is old, but the room was reformed and was clean.
The room was bigger than I expected.
There was a chair for one person next to the bed. There was no table.
The room seen from bed side.
There is a desk and a chair opposite the bed and a mirror on the wall.
There was a TV opposite the bed and next to the desk.
The bed was a king size bed and I could sleep comfortably. The sheets were clean and the mattress was just the right hardness.
The window was small, so the room was a little dark.
There were curtains, but the window was small and more than half was a wall.
The view seen from the room was a parking lot.
There was a bathtub. The shower head was fixed on the wall, but the height was just right and the water pressure was strong enough.
The wash basin was spacious, so I was able to put many things on top. However, the space between the bathroom door and the wash basin was very narrow.
There were three types of towels and there were spare towels prepared as well.
There were cups and an ice bucket on the wash basin.
Amenities were shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, bar soap and a shower cap. The brand is a product of MATRIX, an original brand of Wyndham Hotel Group, and the smell and the after feeling was nice. Unfortunately, there were no tooth brushes prepared.
The hair dryer was was on the wall and the wind power was strong.
Closet and safe
The closet was a small with no door. There was a safe at the top. It may be hard to reach for short people.
In the closet, an iron and an ironing board was prepared, and I thought it was a great service for business people and long-term guests.
There were also hanger.
Mini bar and cafe
There was a coffee maker at the cafe corner. There were also coffee and tea bags. In addition, there was a microwave, so I was able to warm up instant noodles and frozen foods easily.
As there was a small sink, it was nice to not have to use water from the bathroom sink.
There was nothing in the fridge.
Restaurants in the hotel
Guests can have breakfast for free. However, they did not serve and vegetables.
Bread and cereal corner.
Fruits and drinks corner.
The venue was small for the size of the hotel.
There is a sports bar called O’beer right next to the hotel, open from evening to night. I think it is a nice facility for those who have a car. There are also restaurants within walking distance, so you will not have trouble finding a place to eat.
Environment around the hotel
In the area around the hotel, there were a lot of other hotels. Within walking distance are shops such as Subway and Seven Eleven, and there is a large shopping mall called Westfield Southcenter 5 minutes away by car. There were department stores such as Nordstrom, Uniqlo, Din Tai Fon, Cheesecake Factory and other restaurants open until midnight so it was very convenient. Of course, I think it would be dangerous to walk alone at night, but I saw people walking during the day, so it seemed safe. I think many guests come by car, so it is convenient to be able to go to various places in about 10 minutes from the highway.

Staff and customer base
The staffs were quite normal. When the front desk was crowded, two people worked smoothly. In the morning, the cleaning staffs worked silently. However, there were only two breakfast staffs and they could not keep up with the food supplementation.
Most of the guests were local people and people from neighboring countries such as Canada and South America. There were many families, couples, and so on. The hotel also has a large meeting room and is close to the airport, so it is likely that many business people will stay here as well.
The hotel is located 10 minutes away by car from Seattle Tacoma International Airport, and it is in a very convenient location. In addition, it is very convenient because it is within a 20-minute drive to the major shopping mall “Westfield Southcenter “within a 5-minute drive to the famous museum, within 10 minutes to downtown Seattle. It took about 10 minutes to go to the location of Jimmy Hendrix’s memorial in RENTON in the next town.
I had a nice stay at this hotel. The downside was that it was old overall, but I did not feel uncomfortable as it was cleaned properly. It was not like a luxurious resort hotel, but after all it’s close to downtown and other attractions, and it has free parking, breakfast and internet, so I was satisfied. One other disappointing thing was the breakfast. The venue was too small for the size of the hotel and there were not enough tables, so I could not find a vacant seat when I went to the venue. Other than that, I was able to enjoy my stay.
