About Ian Petry
I have owned and lived in the Harrison Modern since 1997. I have a passion for architecture and interior design, you will see this in every aspect of the building. Originally born in New Zealand, I have traveled the world and the US extensively, I believe that Seattle is one of the most beautiful cities on the planet. My back ground is in Tourism Marketing, I worked for the New Zealand Tourism Board in Los Angles for 8 years before moving to Seattle in 1994. I have a love of travel and new experiences - Whenever I away I always stay at vacation apartments, as you get a real feel for the destination you are visiting.

Why Ian Petry chose Capitol Hill
Seattle is a vibrant city full of amazing sights from world class architecture, vibrant arts scene, to spectacular outdoor activities. Capitol Hill, is the perfect location to explore all Seattle and everything the region has to offer. If you are not traveling outside the city you won't need a car, everything is within an easy walk or a short bus ride. Within 3 short blocks of the building are a a number of great restaurants, shops and cafes, 2 supermarkets and 3 wonderful city parks. Capitol Hill is a rich, diverse, neighborhood with multi million mansions and a wonderful farmers market within blocks of each other. One thing I am sure about... You will love the location. I have done a lot of traveling and believe that Seattle and the Pacific North West is one of the most beautiful, livable, areas in the North America.
What makes this Apartment unique
Location, Location, Location... Capitol Hill is the most convenient neighborhood to downtown Seattle. from our building it is a lovely 15-20 minute walk to downtown. The building is super stylish, all the apartments are large and individually furnished in keeping with the mid-century contemporary theme. Comfort, convenience, and style are what you will find when you stay at the Harrison Modern.

Comfortable, clean and convenient apartment in Capitol Hill
Our family of four stayed at the Harrison Modern in the Madmen apartment for a week. There was plenty of room for everyone, with both a daybed and sofa bed in the large living room. The location is perfect, within walking distance of the 2 main shopping streets in Capitol Hill where you'll find anything you need, and Volunteer Park is a short jog away for a morning run. We paid a bit extra for parking on site and had use of the full driveway for 2 cars. The apartment was clean, comfortable and convenient, and we'd definitely stay here again!

Excellent location, space, and cleanliness.
Modest second floor walk up apartment
Good size apartment. Just 2 of us. Bed was comfortable. Window A/C unit was comfortable for bedroom. Evening temperatures cooled down for the rest of the apt.
Water pressure was too low to be useful in the kitchen and bath.
TV reception and available choice of channels was very poor.
Flooring and doors should be refinished (poor appearance)
No carpet in the bedroom so the outside noise at night can be disruptive. Windows are dirty in bedroom and living room.
Living room pillows, throws, and sofas need to be cleaned, they are odorous. View from all windows was roof of next unit.
Dishes, flatware and glasses should be upgraded. This is an inexpensive minor improvement. There is no dishwasher installed so these items appear unclean.
Provide bar soap in bathroom. Initial supply of shower soap, shampoo and conditioner was helpful. Leftover food supplies in refrigerator was helpful.
We were advised there would be no cleaning fee yet we were charged $80 for this service. We were also required to do the dishes and put them back in the cabinet before leaving.
Light rail is not obvious, walk to Broadway and shops is much more than a 3 minute walk. Walk to Pike's Market is more that 1.5 miles. While the walk is good for us the description is not accurate.
Harrison Modern Stay
Easy location to all that we were doing. Ian was accommodating to our request for a bit later check out and that was helpful. Also requested the off street parking after we booked and that was accommodated as well.
Good place great location
Good place great location a little noisy but its OK
Thanks for your review. We are very fortunate with our in city location.
Great stay .
We came to Seattle for 8 days. With 4 adults there was plenty of room. The location was perfect. Quick drive to the city and short walk to local restaurants. Everything was really nice. Laundry on site. Host very friendly. The only negative is the renters downstairs were loud and on a few occasions it woke us at 3:30 am.
