Harbor Steps - 1 Block From Pike Place Market And Seattle Water Front!
"I was so disappointed!!! To have to come home!!! I absolutely loved my stay at Harbor Steps. The weather was wonderful during my stay and this residence is so close to EVERYTHING FUN that there was pretty much NO WAY I could have had a bad experience. The things I enjoyed while there that I would recommend doing are the Argosy Harbor Cruise, the Seattle Aquarium, of course Pike's Market Place. I did the Seattle Spooked Tour and the guy kind of walks you around and shows you stuff and uses his iPad to show you reference materials on the things you are seeing, so I don't know...plus I had already had a few drinks with friends at Ivars...I didn't consider it creepy enough! The check in staff was wonderful - Ian. He was super nice to hold my bags until check in time and when I left, the gentleman at the counter was equally kind in doing so for me, as I had a flight later in the day. The residence is clean, decorated nicely and very well equipped with everything you need for a wonderful stay. My only recommendation would be to have a guide for the channels on TV, but once I figured out to just go to Channel 9, there is your guide! :) I am a TV addict!! Would have loved to have one in the bedroom as well, but that is because I usually wake up during the middle of the night and need that to lull me back to sleep. Not the case on that bed though - the bed and linens were so nice, once my head hit the pillow, I was out like a light!! I met some nice people in the Cantina downstairs and found it a convenient place to go if I wanted a drink, because you only have to walk steps to get into your building and safely back "home". All in all, I had a wonderful stay and Debra was super attentive to any messages I sent to her. One last thing...catching the link to get to and from the airport could not have been easier...just walk one block up University Street and it is on the left, only costs $2.75 to get to and from the airport. Much cheaper than a $40-$45 cab or hired car ride and they have places on the train for you to put your bags if you are traveling with luggage. Felt safe the entire time! I can't wait to return, I only hope it isn't booked when I want to go back!! I live in Alaska and it was miserable to come back to 14" of new snow and -15 degree temps. :("
