1 bedroom, 1 bath apartment close to everything.

Whether you are visiting family in the area or visiting Seattle for its many sights and attractions, the Plaza Suites is a great place to call home during your stay in the Emerald City.

This condo sleeps 4 comfortably, it has a comfortable queen bed and a queen sofa sleeper. We provide linens and towels for your stay. The kitchen is fully equipped with all the necessary appliances and utensils needed to allow for the convenience of eating from home and avoiding restaurant dining every night while on your vacation.

In addition to the living room, the bedroom also has a TV unit. Enjoy wifi, cable TV, a stereo and dvd player during your stay as well.

Guests should expect to enjoy the conveniences of being close to downtown Seattle either by bus or car and also having a nice relaxing place to come back to, away from the busy city life.

The surrounding area is a typical north Seattle neighborhood. Quiet residential areas next to busy streets with an urban beat; coffee shops, pubs, restaurants and great take-out spots.

During your stay enjoy the tastefully decorated space as well as my artwork, most of what you will find are prints from my recent series.

About the Owner

My family and I reside in a small suburb of Seattle. Like a true Seattleite I love coffee! In fact, I love it so much I own and operate a drive-thru espresso stand. If I am not making coffee I am probably spending time with my 10 year old son. He makes me laugh and keeps me busy at many of his sporting events! I love hiking, biking and soaking up the sun! In the summer months I try to spend as much time at the beach as possible. Washington is always beautiful, but in the summer it is spectacular.

Comfortable and convenient

My husband and I stayed here for a week while visiting our children in Seattle. The apartment was perfect for us. It is comfortable, clean, close to the interstate and also close to a very nice Safeway supermarket!
The furnishings are modern and the floor plan makes it easy to work and socialize.
In addition to the indoor space, there are two outdoor patios to sit on, one of which has a table for outdoor dining. As mentioned before, there is a laundry room right next door to the unit.
We never had any problems with our parking space or noise from the neighbors.
It does face a busy street, but the bedroom is in the back of the unit so it really is not an issue. During the day, we usually were out exploring and so the noise was not an issue then, either.
We would definitely consider returning for another visit.

Best Place we have ever stayed in Seattle!

We stayed 3 nights for our honeymoon. They exceeded our expectations with everything a hotel would have; including things like a hair dryer, dish soap, and a guide for the best spots to go to on our honeymoon. The listing was awesome when we saw it online but even better when we saw it in person. The place was very clean and well managed. So we couldn't have asked for a better place and will return for every stay in Seattle.

Thanks to Andrea. We had an awesome stay at the Plaza Suite. It was exactly as described, and the comfort level was more than what we expected. We arrived there when Seattle was unusually warm. We were provided with 2 fans and were on prior to our arrival, and that was very helpful to cool down the place.
Easy access to downtown but far enough from the crowd and noise. The only minor issue was that our designated parking spot was taken when we came back one night, but there are street parkings available as well. Will definitely be back if we are around the area next time.

The apartment's location was perfect for our visit. The amenities were fine; we only had to buy food--not supplies. The lighting could have been brighter. The owner left a helpful notebook that made us comfortable with our surroundings. We enjoyed our stay.

Keeping this one on my list for future trips!

I stayed at this property for approximately a month. I will provide a couple of cautions for those who may be “sensitive” to noise and end on a high note. The unit does face a busy street, but after a couple of days, the street traffic just sounded like white noise for the most part (although sometimes it sounded a bit like a freeway--lol). If you are a light sleeper, like me, you probably always carry your earplugs, and you will sleep fine with them. The other caution for the “noise averse” is that whoever lives directly upstairs is a VERY heavy walker. That was a bit annoying, but it did not outweigh the pros of the property.

In terms of the pros, there is a sleeper sofa, which is a great option if you have additional guests. The unit was exactly as described in the listing. I found it to be clean, decorated nicely and very spacious. There were three of us there during the first week of my trip, and we had plenty of room to spread out comfortably. The common areas are open to each other so you can interact with people while cooking, watching television, etc. You will find all the comforts of home, including cleaning supplies, linens, and a nice supply of spices and herbs. Although there is no in-unit laundry, the machines are inside of the building and right next to the unit, so very easy access. Also, there are additional machines through the property, but I never had to wait for the machines that were closest to the unit. Also, for your outdoor enjoyment, there is direct access to two balcony areas.

The geographic location is far enough from the touristy areas without being too far away. I decided not to rent a car, and there are numerous buses within a couple of blocks that will take you all around the area. I did not use a taxi, but based on what I could tell, it does not seem as if it would be too expensive to get downtown (but again, the bus system will take you there directly). For those with a car, from what I could see, access to I-5 was quite close.

I never had to contact the owner during my stay to report any issues, problems, etc., which I thought was great considering that I was there for almost a month. Overall, I would definitely recommend this place. I do not think you will be disappointed.

Our place it located at a very interesting intersection on Lake City Way and the Maple Leaf neighborhood. Within minutes you can be on I-5 headed to downtown Seattle (about a 10 min. drive) or you could head the other direction and arrive at the shores of Lake Washington, with many lake activities widely available such as beach access, sailing, jet skiing etc. There is also another very popular lake in our area called Greenlake (also about 10 min. from our place) and many locals walk, run or ride their bike around the 3 mile perimeter. And finally, another 10 min. in another direction and you are at a large indoor shopping mall. Our place is close to everything including many great north Seattle neighborhoods.

From the Owner

The apartment is great because it really is close to everything and yet it is still located in a relatively quite north Seattle neighborhood. So you can easily get your downtown Seattle time and come away from it and be able to relax in a smaller and slower part of the city.
