The Space

Greetings from Seattle and thanks for considering my place. I've tried to make this the best Airbnb deal in downtown Seattle -- no deposit required or cleaning fee, no "check-out checklist" which often tells guests to wash dishes, change linens or do laundry before they leave -- you can just leave when you're ready and Nadia, the world's best housekeeper, will go in and make the place fresh and ready for the next guests. Unlike staying in a hotel, there's no 25.1% hotel occupancy or state taxes, you'll save upwards of $45 a day in parking, and the mini-bar is free. The calendar is always up to date, so if you have a few Airbnb reviews and Instant Book privileges, you can book immediately. Otherwise, drop me a note and let me know a little about you and why you're coming to Seattle.

Here's more...

This is a beautifully furnished, private bedroom with private bath in a condo, just off Pike Street. An ideal hotel alternative: the best in comfort, price, and location -- a half block east of the Central Business District that includes the Convention Center, a 7-minute walk from the Westlake Light Rail link to/from the airport, a block south of the Pike Pine Corridor which encompasses the Retail Shopping Core, and a block west of Capitol Hill, Seattle's most prominent area for nightlife and entertainment. This location has a walk score of 98 out of a possible 100, and a transit score of 100, meaning it's easy to get anywhere from here.

You'll have a totally private accommodation -- chances are you won't meet the hostess unless you'd like to because the guest quarters are separate from the main condo. Upon booking, you'll get an email explaining where to pick up the keys, along with a lot of other information about getting to downtown from the airport or train and lots of recommendations for things to do.

When you look up the address on the map (1400 Hubbell Place) it will look like the building is right next to the freeway, but the freeway runs under the city in this area so it won't block your walking the city, and this guest accommodation is on the quiet side of the building.

You won't need to rent a car -- first, you'll be downtown within walking distance to shopping, theaters, museums, Pike Place Market, two great shopping malls, many restaurants, and more. If you want to venture out a little, Seattle is known for its low-cost public transportation that's highly accessible from where you'll be staying, and cabs are easy to reserve (or hail one), plus their fees are quite reasonable. A parking permit for free street parking is provided for guests who do drive.

Accommodations: A wonderfully comfortable queen-size bed made up with cotton linens and hypoallergenic bedding. Spa robes, too. Once you book, there are no other costs to you, unless you want maid service during your stay. Plenty of extra bed and bath linens always available.

Features: LGBT friendly, free high-speed internet access (WiFi), Cable+TV/DVD/CD, and your own little alcove with microwave, toaster, drip and presse coffee (email hidden) refrigerator/freezer -- perfect for breakfasts and light meals. The condominium is a secure environment with an on-site building manager and front desk concierge. There are two rooftop decks with outstanding city views. This has been a downtown favorite since 1999.

Breakfast: Your mini-bar will be stocked with complimentary breakfast fare including muffins or crumpets, Greek yogurt, cereal, milk, juice, fresh fruit, regular and decaf coffees, lots of teas, butter, jam, honey, and bottled water. Let me know in advance if you'd like us to make a substitution (no extra charge). Plus, we're happy to get special items and have them here for your arrival -- like champagne or a favorite cheese, at cost (no service charge).

This is a comfortable, private get-a-way, a couple short blocks from the Convention Center, a half block from Hilton Suites, right up the street from the Sheraton, and four short blocks to Pacific Place Mall. The location is amazing.

The calendar is always up-to-date, so you can rely on the dates. I hope you book with me.

Sincerely,
Siena, your hostess, and Nadia, the great

Guest Access

In the email I send you before your arrival, it'll tell you how to gain access to the building and apartment. It's easy and there are no restrictions on the time of day or night you arrive, come and go, or check out.

Other Things to Note

Free Zone 21 Parking. There are 60 blocks in a 10 x 7-block radius of the building for free Zone 21 parking. If you can't find parking on the street right in front of the building when you arrive, you might want to take your luggage up to the condo before looking for a space. The parking permit will be on the desk in your room, along with a map showing all Zone 21 parking spaces. Once parked, you can stay there for 72 hours before you need to move your car to another Zone 21 space.
Parking is on a first-come, first-served basis, but since I moved here in 1998, I've usually been able to find a space within a couple blocks of the building, but on certain times, like Saturday nights and Sundays, I've had to venture further out in the neighborhood. With a little patience, I've never had to resort to parking in a pay lot.
If you have physical challenges, let me know ahead of your arrival and I'll secure a parking space on the street where you'll be staying, or at least within one or two blocks, using my car to hold a space for you and then we can swap places with your car when you arrive.
If you plan to be using your car a lot and going in and out more than, say, once a day, it'd be more convenient to pay the extra money to book a place that includes reserved parking in the building.

  • Siena provided us with more than we expected. She was generous and hospitable. The location was convenient to downtown.

  • A Room with all your needs catered for. Siena has thought of absolutely everything you could possibly require. This tastefully decorated room is in a secure building with a lift. It is a very short walk to the Convention Centre and is centrally located to many attractions, restaurants, bars and cafés. This spotlessly clean unit is a credit to Siena, who is committed to her guests requirements.

  • Great place, great location and fabulous host. Sienna provided loads of lovely things for breakfast and lots of extras, really very generous host. We would highly recommend this accommodation.

  • Cozy room with everything we needed (including delicious food and drink in the fridge -- which got restocked too!), really easy to walk to where we needed to be, including shops, restaurants, the monorail, and a bus stop around the corner. A good laundry room downstairs. Siena thought of everything and made our stay very comfortable. She even met us to take care of our luggage when we arrived earlier than check-in time. Highly recommended!

  • I could not recommend staying with Siena more highly! Such a thoughtful host. The location of the apartment is fantastic. The room is cozy, clean and has everything you could need for a short stay. Every little detail was thought of - even leaving a bag of quarters for the laundry machines! Thanks again Siena.

  • The accommodations were great. Everything was clean and orderly. Additionally, and of great importance to me because I'm a graduate student, the extras that Siena provided really helped me to afford Seattle on a graduate student budget.

  • The day I flew in was a day of epic failures. From being late to the airport to leaving my brand new cell phone in a taxi...and then I finally got to Sienna's. The room was inviting and there were fresh blueberries waiting for me. The day had been so crazy that I had forgotten to eat. Those blueberries were heavenly. I felt right at home. There were snacks and such in the refrigerator, which meant I didn't have to run back out to find food. I also found loads of information on Seattle. Sienna also provided me with flawless information regarding check in, which made my harried day less so. I can't recommend Sienna's place enough. I can only say you will not be disappointed. The location was perfect and so was the (website hidden)...the concierge at the lobby desk helped me retrieve my lost phone by letting me use his cell to call my own. Many thanks to this kind man.

  • It was a great stay in Seattle and our start for a road trip down to San Francisco. Even though we didn't have the chance to meet her, Siena took very good care of us and even provided plenty of food and drinks. In addition the communication prior to and during our stay was excellent. As we had a rental car the parking licence was very helpful. The appartment is ideally located just a 5 min walk away from downtown and 10-15 min away from Pike Market. If you arrive by airplane it will only take you half an hour by train and 2.75 USD to get to the appartement.

  • My stay at Siena's can be summed up by saying it was simply outstanding! Her friendliness and hospitality took me back to my days I'd spent in Europe. She is absolutely genuine and comforting; she made my stay feel like I was visiting a good family friend or relative. The special touches were impeccable. From her assortment of lovely fruits and berries to the fantastic chocolates resting on the cutest shabby-chic desk next to a bottle of French wine. She greeted me in person the first evening and we immediately connected. We shared an amazingly delicious meal in the Melrose Market section just a few minutes walk from the condo. Afterward, Siena thoroughly oriented me to the place and answered all of my questions. She had a list of helpful instructions, which I referred to on the occasion that she hadn't already answered it for me during dinner. The bed was extremely comfortable and warm and it was a neat touch to have a spa waffle-weave bathrobe hanging in the closet just ready for me to relax. The bathroom was the perfect size and had all the necessary (and many extra) toiletries which were complimentary for my use. The first morning Siena met me before work and she walked with me in the park to show me how to get to work from her place. What a treat that was! It made me feel safe and well-cared for. Since I'm a very busy gal with working in the city and commuting many hours per week up to Whidbey Island to be with my family, it was a place that I would easily call a "home-away-from-home." There is nothing but positive comments as a take-away from my 3-night stay at Siena's. The breakfast part of the "b&b" aspect really made my stay enjoyable. Siena had a fridge full of yummy and healthy foods from crumpets to greek yogurt to hard-boiled eggs. Making my coffee with the French press was nice before work each morning too. Honestly, Siena made me feel so pampered that I immediately looked for open dates to stay again for my work schedule in the city for the rest of the summer, but so many other lucky people have beat me to it! I'm sure my review will also make my future stays more difficult to book, but it's worth it. Stay with Siena and you will not regret it for a second.

  • Siena was an awesome host, kind, considerate and always thoughtful. This was a great, convenient and secure place to stay and I have already reserved with Siena again for next year. From the moment she remotely buzzed me in (I called her at 1 am due to my very late flight arrival), her good cheer, gracious care and attention to detail were readily apparent, even unmatched, in my many travels. The room is nicely sized with plenty of storage (large closet and two small dressers), two nice large openable windows, with dark shades for sleeping, and had all the comforts of a nicely and artfully appointed home, a very comfortable bed and fluffy very fine comforter. The microwave/fridge/pantry had everything I needed, including a so thoughtfully stocked fridge and pantry (I am sure I am forgetting lots but including fresh raspberries, Greek Yogurt, English muffins, bananas, apples, nice jam, nice butter, milk, juice, 3 different beers, a bottle of very nice wine, bottled water, a bar of exceptional chocolate, jar of honey, her 7 pages of restaurant and other local recommendations (nearly all within short walking distance)--you get the idea- now I know how movie stars live). Oh, forgot to mention the assorted fine coffees and teas (did I mention I'm a coffee snob and was in town for the world's largest coffee convention?), fresh flowers, coffee brewers of several sorts (Melitta drip cone with filters provided, and French Press), nice cordless electric kettle, small video library, flat screen TV, robes, umbrellas, emergency rain coat, free on street parking pass (I didn't have a car but wow!), laundry basket with laundry soap and a pile of available quarters for the nice shared coin-op laundry in the building (worked great, I jogged every day to the Elliot Bay Path down Pike St. and so did laundry 3 times, it's only 9 blocks to the waterfront and only 4 blocks to Westlake Station subway station, which takes you all the way to or from the airport for $2.75). My private bath was clean, nice, warm and nicely appointed, stocked with everything you could want and ample luxuriant, thick towels. I attended a Convention, and could not believe short 10 to 20 step walk via the very pleasant Freeway Park sidewalk entrance to the Seattle Convention Center, it was essentially a private garden entrance directly to the main floor. Several times during my stay, Siena emailed/texted to make sure all was well. Awesome host, awesome stay! Thank you Siena, see you next year!

About
I moved to Seattle in 1990 and love it here. Beautify City, wonderful people. I've been hosting since 1999 and have met terrific people from all over the world. It's gratifying to be able to provide an affordable, comfortable hotel alternative right in the heart of the City. I'm also a writer and nutritional therapist. I love my work.
