What travellers think
Wed 26 Aug 2015
I've always enjoyed my stays at HI America, but this one in Seattle is certainly the worst one I've been to (which speaks more to the high quality of HI America). The biggest problem I had was with the services and cleaning crews. Breakfast ends at 9am, which is very early compared to the other places I've seen. Additionally, housekeeping cleans the bathrooms in the morning, which is traditionally when they get the most traffic. The end result is an uncomfortable start to the day.

Nightlife & entertainment tip
Call a cab or walk the block to transit to get to downtown. Locally, there are "interesting" people around that probably should be avoided at night.
