The remodel of the hotel is nice and modern. The location is prime for seeing the major tourist attractions in Seattle. We had two large issues with the hotel. First, the $25/day amenity fee is an excuse for the hotel to advertise a lower price, but end up charging you more compared to other hotels in the area. Second, the shower in our room had a tendency to leak water onto the bathroom floor and we had to use several towels to soak up the mess. Coupled with an ice cold floor this did not make a very good start to the morning. Most of the staff were helpful with the exception of one. She seemed to always be confused about the property and could not give us coffee recommendations around town. Although the Civic Hotel looks nice I would recommend you choose a different hotel in the area for similar cost and better amenities.
