Thanks for the feedback ! I'll swap out the pillows with a new set ASAP. I do have the comforters washed between every guest though.
I'm sorry you didn't find the area to be safe but in spite of its appearance there's actually less crime (property and otherwise) in Pioneer Square these days than on Capitol Hill.
As I've recently moved spaces I haven't had the chance to re-seal the windows but it will be done sometime this month in order to keep out the chill as fall approaches.
