Number of Rooms: 147
Resort Opening: 2008
Type: High-Rise Building
Desirable Room Locations:
In my opinion, try to get on the highest floor possible for the best view. In the Deluxe Bay View room I stayed in room 821 which was a very nice location. It was one of the rooms furthest away from the elevators. In the Corner Elliot Bay Suite, I stayed on the 10th floor in room 1001 which had great corner views of the Bay. Also, if you do stay in a corner view room, the better views to be had are on the right side of the building facing toward the Olympic Mountains.
