11th floor gave great view of ferris wheel and water. Walked to the Market and noshing row, the Space Needle, restaurants in this plaza were top notch too. A little noisy with windows open or on balcony. A great price for a two bedroom and two couples. Walk to ferry for a truly Seattle experience.
This was the perfect choice for our long weekend in Seattle. Just a short walk to Pike Place and the waterfront. For anything beyond walking distance we used Uber. We had a great view of the sound and sat on the balcony watching the ferries. There is a little market down the the Harbor Steps for a late night ice cream run. Two bedrooms and two baths worked great for two couples. The living room and kitchen made it so much better than a hotel at a comparable price. Booking was easy and checkin was smooth. There was always someone at the concierge desk to recommend places to eat.
You can rely on Stay Alfred's description of this property. It is accurate and you will be satisfied with your choice and your experience.
Trouble with the wifi, but otherwise great! Modern decor and awesome location close to transit, the waterfront and Pike Place Market.
The Harbour View Complex is in the middle of Seattle on the waterfront with great views.Booking in and out was easy and the apartment was clean and pleasant.
We were there over Thanksgiving weekend with a large family group in Seattle. . Downtown was our focus, so location was perfect. The apartment unit was the most poorly equipped that we have rented in many, many other locations, however. Not enough pans, no coffee filters, and no action from the broker when we called about the shortcomings. We could have done much better for much less had we stayed at a downtown hotel, as did others in our family there for a family reunion and Thanksgiving holiday.
This was a very comfortable 2 bedroom apartment with good views over the harbour. Centrally located to all attractions. Very helpful concierge. We had 4 adults staying here and it was fabulous.
Our condo was spacious ,clean and had an amazing view . It was perfect for our family of 3 grown kids ( all in 20's ) ,my mother in law ,husband and I . It was close to shops restaurants ,Pike Place ,if we wanted to travel further @ town we ordered an 'Uber' car service .
This is the second year we have rented at Harbor Steps and we are already planning on renting there again next year. The Alfred app was really helpful with checking in and out. BTW the concierge for check-in-check out were great. This is a great location for all the activities we enjoy doing in Seattle. We are going to check out your rentals for New Orleans next. Thanks
Great location! We walked to just about everywhere we were interested in seeing, the market, mall, restaurants, garden show. We only used our rental car to get to the apartment and go over to the Space Needle and Chihuly's garden and beautiful showroom. Would definitely recommend it to others.
We loved our stay with alfred's at the Harbor Steps. Our whole family had a great time in the fantastic location, facilities, and unit. Our kids played basketball every morning while we had coffee at one of the many wonderful nearby restaurants. The view was incomparable; the location put all kinds of activities within our reach (ferris wheel, ferries to Vashon, Bainbridge, the art Museum, Pike's Market, and great dining). We didn't want to leave. We'd be thrilled to return.
We spent 5 nights at Harbor Steps in mid-April. Our two bedroom unit was spacious, comfortable and well equipped. It has everything that you need to ensure that your stay is a very pleasant one. Add to that a position that is absolutely prime. Everything is so accessible. Five minutes to the Markets and some of the best bars and restaurants that Seattle has to offer.
Again and again, great experience, excellence in customer service and problem solution (if any and properly). You've got a customer and a fan ...
Very nice place, cheap,clean,confortable and well situated. Every thing that anyone likes to finde out when arrives to a hotel. The kitchen is very well equipped and the price is very good!
Harbor Steps is conveniently located to many attractions. I would recommend the property to anyone!
Excellent location, could not have been better. Very, very clean, the cleanest rental I have ever stayed in. Would highly recommend.
When you want a First Class vacation at a value price book with Stayalfred's! The properties they have are "Outstanding" The entire experience with Stayalfred's was second to none. We will book with them again! Thanks Stayalfred's!
Booked a two bedroom, water view, high floor unit through Stay Alfred Vacation rentals. We got a corner apartment on 11th floor. View was GREAT, apartment was as advertised (King and Queen bedrooms) with all fully equipped. Location was Great as we could walk anywhere. BUT, there was a downside. Water view means you face the Route 99 Express Highway that has a LOT of traffic noise plus there is a new building being built directly behind that while we were there ran pile drivers all day. It was hot so we had to have the windows open. We had parking included in our fee which we really nice as we easily could go to the Ferry landing or out to I-5 or I 90. Would we stay there again? Yes but not with a water view.
The condo was smaller than expected but it worked well since we weren't there for much but sleep. The location was perfect for walking to other Seattle attractions such as Pike's market and a longer walk to the needle.
"My wife and I came to town with our two young children. Harbor Steps was an AMAZING place. Ideally located, close to everything we wanted to do, and only 2 blocks from the train station. Before we left I had already recommended Stay Alfred to two other friends. We will definitely look at Stay Alfred first when we travel to Seattle again."
The two bedroom apartment was in an ideal location for sightseeing in Seattle. It was very well equipped and would be ideal for a group or family visit. Would highly recommend. This is the second apartment we rented through Stay Alfred on our trip to the USA and would thoroughly recommend them as an organisation. Staff very helpful and available to sort out any problems.
The apartment couldn't have been in a better location. A block from the aquarium and waterfront. Views of the Puget Sound and Olympic Mountains were spectacular! We stayed with a couple of friends and walked the block to Pikes Place and restaurants daily. Easy access to food and supplies at local downtown Target a block away. Comfortable bedding and well stocked kitchen. Also exercise room easy access. We used it daily. Only slight issue was the stark furnishings which were somewhat cheap and minimal lighting in Master Bedroom. Also minimal blankets, soap and towels.
Great location, noisy but loved being able to walk to sights and see the sound! Apartment was a great size, nice amenities. Beds were not good.
Beautiful views in the heart of Seattle overlooking the waterfront with distant views of the Olympic Range. Perfect for hanging out and being able to cook a couple meals is a real plus. Two blocks from Pikes across the street from the Art museum and Concert hall. Easy walk to major public transportation hub. We got around for 5 days without a car. Good restaurants and fun distractions all around.
We stayed at Harbour steps for one week in Februray. The location is great, located close to train stations and the pike place market in seattle. Nice and clean apartment with great seaside view on 23th floor Only complain is the quite noisy A/C, but we got used to it during our stay
Another wonderful experience for our family of 6 with StayAlfred at the Harbor Steps in Seattle (this was our 4th time staying here). Location can't be beat - steps away from the Pike Place Market and Seattle Waterfront. Beautiful view of the ferries from our condo, which was well equipped and very comfortable (except water pressure could be better in the showers). Younger kids LOVED playing in the pool while big kid toured college campuses nearby. Looking forward to our next visit!
We visited Seattle with our 12 year old son and this was the perfect location. Our view of the water and Ferris wheel was amazing and we were within walking distance to the major attractions and the monorail. Would definitely stay here again.
Our family of four loved staying at this property. We rented a 2-bedroom unit which was very spacious and nicely furnished. The kitchen is great and the stacked washer and dryer in the second bathroom is also a nice addition. The building we were in had a hottub but no pool. The other building has both. We were on a very high floor with a water view that was spectacular. The location can't be beat for time in the city. It's walking distance to the market, Space Needle, with lots of restaurants and shopping nearby.
Staff at building very professional and helpful. Fantastic view of the sound from our room and deck. Walking distance to most attractions. Would stay here again. Only negative was floor could have been vacuumed better but they had a vacuum there and I did it myself.
Everything about our stay at the Stay Alfred apartment was wonderful. Pre-stay communication and directions were excellent; check-in was a breeze; the unit was immaculate and well furnished; view to die for; and convenient to everything. From now on, we won't go anywhere else when traveling to Seattle.
The accommodations were perfect...traveled with wife and 2 older kids. Having 2 bedrooms and a pullout was perfect. Also, since we flew to Seattle, having a fully furnished kitchen also was great. Everything worked, no problems. The location, view was great...close to Pike Place, etc. The pool, exercise room(s) were a nice addition...even has an indoor basketball court! Would definitely stay here again.
Could not have asked for a better apartment at Harbor Steps..easy access, very clean, location couldn't be better, and the hugh windows overlooking Eliott Bay were outstanding. Plan to research some of the other towns Stay Alfred has accommendations.
Unit 1203 at Harbor Steps in Downtown Seattle is tastefully decorated,clean and comfortably furnished. It has 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths, kitchen, dining and living room, balcony and washer/dryer. WiFi is free and works well. One is able to look out over the picturesque harbor from the master bedroom, living room, kitchen and balcony. The building is situated centrally so that restaurants, shops and activities are easy to walk to. We booked this unit through StayAlfred and found it efficient. Booking online, checking-in/checking-out, and using the customer service line all proved to be easy and well-run. Next time we will have to stay longer to enjoy all the amenities that Harbor Steps offers.
The suite was very clean and well supplied. The furnishings were nice. The location was fantastic as it was so close to everything that we wanted to see. The only problem was that the mattress on the sofa bed was very uncomfortable.
This location is ideal, we walked everywhere! The building is safe, quiet, and clean. So nice to have a kitchen for breakfast. It would be good to have a few more dishes, we had to turn on dishwasher every day. NIce view of the water, condo cooled down in the evening, and was good to have the fans provided. Front desk was very good, friendly, stored our luggage when we had to check out at 11:00. Would stay here again for sure!
Our stay at Stay Alfred Harbor Steps Apartments was comfortable, it had all the basics for our stay. Loved the building, concierge Jonathan was amazing and accommodating. The only negative was we were only allowed into the apartment at 3:45pm when clearly check-in was supposed to be 3pm. Other guests were also waiting, cleaning staff was still cleaning when we opened the door. Which is obviously quite annoying when you have been traveling for nine hours. However when we were checking out 11:00 cleaning staff was at the door waiting to get us out so they could clean the apartment. Weird and annoying.
Perfect location an incredible views. Can walk to market and waterfront. Very nice staff. Uber a short ride to most anywhere you would want to go. Highly recommend.
Great Value for the price. Two full bedrooms in a luxury building with views. One block to the Pikes Peak Market. Close to restaurants and stores with access to gym ,spa and pool. Only negative is that there isn't daily housecleaning
Yes, this apartment has spectacular views of the Seattle harbor but trust me you won't be spending a ton of time looking out your windows! You will be walking to all the amazing museums, restaurants, Pike Place Market, waterfront activities right at your doorstep. You can not ask for a better home base to explore Seattle for the first time. You are right in the heart of "the best of Seattle". I would definitely stay here again and feel that this apartment was a big reason why all 3 kids (teenagers and young adults) say this was the best vacation in years.
Extremely pleased w/ Harbor Steps. Great downtown location near Pike's Market. Close to restaurants, bakeries, shops, etc.(Restaurant next door, Von's, has amazing hamburgers!) Walking distance to pier, Seattle Wheel, downtown mall. The water views from the apartment were amazing! The apartment was very clean. The staff was also very friendly. We felt safe because there was quite a bit of activity in the lobby.
Very friendly staff, and the location was very close to all amenities. Overall the experience was positive. The room itself was in need of some minor repairs.
Entire visit was easy and as described. Perfect for 4 guys here to celebrate our buddies bachelor party weekend. Location is convient to most of downtown and local attractions, restaurants and bars. Walking distance to the stadiums (30 minutes or so).
Great View Great Hospitality, Beds, Bathroom, Kitchen. Very Good Comfort! Can get a better channeling system for the TV's Everything else was great.
Booking process was good, picking up the key was good, apartment clean and well equipped, price was good, location was great, view was very good - great rental
Rented this place for a weekend getaway and it was absolutely perfect. Within walking distance to everything we wanted to see including Pike's Place market, the Seattle Pier, and Centrylink Field. The apartment was large and had all of the amenities we needed. Would definitely stay here again.
everything was just as described and perfectly outfitted for a very comfortable short-term stay. Easy few block walk to Pike Place Mkt.
Stay Alfred's customer service is wonderful. They were responsive and friendly, even on a holiday. The apartment was clean and the amenities were wonderful.
Close vicinity to great food. Clean apt and spacious. Convenient. Middle location to pike place, bars, and ferry.
Excellent accommodations and very convenient. Clean unit with modern appeal, a steal for the price point.
We enjoyed our stay here and felt like we got a great value for our money. The beds were comfortable, its a nice unit and has a great view of the ships coming and going in the harbor. It was conveniently located in the middle of everything downtown and there are a few good places to eat within steps of the building. My only suggestions would be to pay a little more attention to cleaning the bathrooms (not bad, not fantastic) and although the coffee maker and coffee were appreciated it would have been nice if there were filters. We left some for the next guests.
If you want to get a true feel of being in Seattle and get a hold of all the experiences Seattle has to offer than this is the place! Perfect location, gorgeous views of the waterfront, and a block away from Pikes place made this home away from home the perfect getaway. Everyday was packed with adventure due to how close our home was to everything. A Lyft was no more than $10 to get to any Seattle landmark, and great food was never more than a block away. Thanks for an awesome experience!
Everything was great after we found our way through the treasure hunt to our keys - but all of a sudden Rick appeared and helped us through! He was great. Everything went well - we hope to stay there again for our city escapes. Thank you, Diane
Large 2 bedroom apartment located near everything downtown. Excellent price considering you are right next to the Four Seasons.
This was our third stay at Harbor Steps, and it remains one of my family's favorite places to visit. The proximity to Pike Place is perfect! The beds were comfortable, and the condo was very clean. We are already planning our next trip to Harbor Steps. My only complaint is about the parking. We were charged a different amount (ranging from $8 to $35) every time we left the garage, and were told that they didn't have a weekly parking rate. The rates didn't seem to have any correlation with how many hours we parked (the $8 parking was from 4pm until 10am the next morning). Stay Alfred used to provide parking - it would be great if they brought it back.
Good place to stay and central to everything downtown. The only down side would be that you get charged 30 a day for parking that's a little ridiculous. But other than that we loved the place.
Very spacious and nicely furnished apartment. Way more space than a comparably priced hotel with similar quality of accommodation and better location that most hotels downtown. Only a couple of pretty expensive ones are this close to the market and the waterfront. Terrific location one block from like st. market and two blocks from Seattle aquarium and water front. We had great city skyline views. Very clear directions on how to get into the apartment. It's got enough towels and toiletries but isn't as luxurious as comparable priced hotel in this respect. Kitchen was well enough appointed to cook simple meals. But restaraunts in the area are so many and so good we didn't cook anything more than toast for breakfast. We come to settle frequently and will stay here anytime our trip allows staying downtown. We didn't use the pool but like the idea there is one.
Très bel appartement doté d'une excellente situation dans la ville pour visiter à deux pas du port et du marché de Pike Place. Très propre et doté de deux salles de bain. Seul la prise des clés est un peu fastidieuse lorsque nous sommes encombrés de valises puisqu'il faut prendre les clés dans uns tour puis en changer pour aller à l'appartement.
This was a lovely apartment with a view to die for! The location of the building couldn't have been better but better yet was the reception from Rick and the constant assistance he provided us with. I would definitely stay there again!!!
After staying at Harbor Steps in Seattle it will be difficult to stay in a hotel again on vacation. The unit is spacious, clean, and nicely decorated with every basic convenience provided. The location is superb--convenient and within easy walking distance to all must-see attractions such as the market, the waterfront,the piers for day trip excursions, restaurants, Pike Market, the museum, the monorail entrance, and Benaroya Hall for a show or concert. Restaurants of all kinds are at your fingertips and and well stocked. A well priced little market is in the courtyard to fill the fridge with immediate necessities. Price, comfort, location, ease of booking are five star plus.
Everything was perfect, apartment super nice, clean with a great view on an amazing location....from now on every time on vacation I will look for Stay Alfred apartments
I am not sure which of the Stay Alfred 1st Ave Appts I should be putting this review under, as there are quite a few listed and non of the photos are a match. We stayed in apartment number 1805 over Christmas for a week. It was just above a Starbucks overlooking the art gallery. It was such a lovely surprise to arrive to a rental that exceeded our expectations. It was spotlessly clean, nicely furnished, very spacious and well equipped. It was perfect for our family if 5 or would suit 2 couples. Great wifi and TV. During the snow it was lovely and warm to come home to. The kitchen had all we needed to cook a Christmas dinner. Only a couple of blocks to the market so brilliantly located. Easy to walk every where. City views. The only small things that could be smoothed out were the checking in process and limited lighting in the master bedroom (literally just one bedside lamp, no other lighting). In order to get to the key cupboard to use the code to extract our keys we needed to go through a locked front door. Clearly could be an issue if no one is around to let you in, we had a short but frustrating wait. Also when you pick up the keys some instructions about how to find the apartment would be useful. There are several towers and it is not clear which one to go to. But this is a minor issue in a great stay.
All good but really should mention that getting keys then to apartment stairs to climb so leave someone at apartment. Otherwise great location
We took Amtrak from Portland to Seattle for a fun weekend. Our Stay Alfred apartment was in the best location and very convenient for launching our sight seeing. Hope to visit again before too long.
The progressive idea of no front desk made the checking in and out process a nightmare for our first stay here. Are there directions, yes. Are they helpful, not really. The building we stayed in didn’t have cell service so calling regarding questions was a no go. The “parking” situation under the building was awful. Finding our rooms was like trying to find a needle in a haystack. There were little to no signs. I booked two apartments together and we were placed in two completely different towers. The apartments were great. Awesome location and plenty of room with great views. The check out instructions were just as awful as checking in. Paying $100 for “cleaning” but then giving the guest instructions to clean up the apartments is a rip off. If i do stay with Stay Alfred again I hope it’s a smoother process.
We stayed downtown Seattle at the Harbor Steps apartment. We parked in the parking garage upon arrival. We were not able to check in quite yet so we left our bags in the car. By the time we returned the garage was locked. It took some time to realize we could enter the garage by another inside entry. Also, it took several steps to get our keys and figure out where to go. The directions provided by Stay Alfred are very thorough and when followed are perfect. But it could be overwhelming for some including elderly to manage. The room was clean. The back door onto the porch was broken so hopefully this can be addressed. So fun to be downtown. Great location for touring Seattle!!!!
