Remodeled Lg 1-Bedroom ~ Harbor Steps 1604 ~ Balcony, 1 Blk To Pike Pl Market
"This property was in a great location. We found it easy to walk to many of the cities' attractions. The proximity to Pike Place Market (just two blocks) was wonderful! We went daily, sometimes more than once. It was also a very short walk down to many activities on the waterfront (aquarium, ferris wheel, harbor cruises, shopping, eating, etc.). One of the reasons we chose this property was because of the view. It was fun to watch the hustle and bustle on the water all day/night and the sunset was beautiful over the water. We also enjoyed watching The Great Wheel and all of it's lights day and night - they even changed over to green lights for St. Patrick's Day! We loved it! There was considerable highway noise but we wouldn't have expected anything else in such a central location. It was not a problem for us at all. One area which could have been improved was the cleanliness and maintenance of the pool/hot tub/sauna area. It was dingy and dirty. There were clumps of hair, used band aids and abandoned toys present for multiple days in a row - yuck! That area needs a lot of attention. Most areas of the condo seemed fairly clean. There were some esthetic issues such as a missing curtain and it's rod not in the holes anymore and dusty baseboards but aside from that it looked/felt clean. We were happy to see that there was a washer/dryer combo in the unit and so we packed with the expectation of doing laundry one time during our stay. However, the condo was only stocked with one set of four bath towels/wash cloths and two hand towels. For a family of four staying seven nights that meant laundry was happening more often than expected. Unfortunately, the tiny washer could only fit two sets of (very plush and nice!) towels at a time and the dryer needed multiple cycles to dry them. Needless to say a vacation from constant laundry did not happen but we were appreciative of the ability to do it in our own condo nonetheless. Check in/out was very convenient and fast with the 24-hour concierge. We also appreciated the level of security between the four buildings and within our unit. Seattle is quite hilly and so we were happy there were multiple ways to come/go from the property. The unit was on the 16th floor and we found ourselves using levels 1, 4 & 6 to come/go depending on our desired activity. Overall we enjoyed our stay at this unit and we would recommend it to others. Thanks Debra and Picture Properties!"
