A great apartment in a great location!
All of our apartments are stocked with kitchen and bathroom essentials, blow dryers, irons, ironing boards, and free wifi access.
304 is a two-bedroom apartment that can sleep up to 4 people. The kitchen, living and dining rooms are combined into one functional space where your family can hang out, watch TV, cook, eat and enjoy your vacation. This apartment is approx. 650 sq ft.
The master bedroom has a California King four post bed. It's high up - the bed sits about three feet off the floor, so there is a stool in the room to help short people get in! There's also a closet and dresser, a stuffed chair in one corner and a small writing desk in the other. The room is on the corner of the building and it looks down onto both E. Pike and Harvard.
The second bedroom has two "adult-sized" twin beds. This means they are longer than ordinary twin sized beds. The windows look down on Harvard Avenue and you can see the entrance to the QFC grocery store across the street.
The bathroom has a full tub and shower, and a window that goes into a central light well, adding daylight while maintaining privacy.
Please be aware that this is an urban environment. In our neighborhood you can expect to encounter people from all walks of life and hear noise, often late into the evening. If a silent outdoor environment is important to you, this part of Seattle may not be the best place for you to stay. That being said, St. John's is an incredible place to experience the city from, and we have security systems, triple-pane windows to reduce the street noise as well as white noise machines in the bedrooms to make sure you sleep easy.

Why Bryce Montgomery chose First Hill
We began the search for our apartment building over two years before we found St. John's. We were very particular about the location, because we wanted something that would be extremely convenient for both daily living (like having the grocery store across the street) and also for travelers that want to walk to the convention center or downtown. Plus our neighborhood on Capitol Hill is one of the most up-and-coming areas in the city, full of vibrant life, food, night clubs, shops, galleries, it's all here, right around us.

Fantastic apartment in a fantastic location.
This was my first time staying at the St. John's and it won't be my last.
In the perfect spot.
The location was awesome. Walking distance to anything you would like to do. You can feel the pulse of Capitol Hill and Pike street is like the major veins of the city. Its an amazing place to absorb the city life. The weekends attract the younger crowds and the streets become flooded with life. It leads to extra noise and the dizziness of bodies rushing in millions of directions. Its intoxicating and electric vibe that myself and my friends enjoyed being swept up into.
The bed in the master bedroom was simply criminal. It held me against my will every morning during our stay the combination of fluffy pillows, super soft comforter and marshmallow soft bed made for difficult wake up calls. I found it hard to get out of bed, though I must admit I did not put up too big a fight. My flat mates report that the twin beds were just as comfortable.
Having QFC right across the street was an awesome luxury. Being able to pop down at any hour and grab a pint of ice cream without having to pay premium room service prices was a great thing. I was very happy with my stay here and will have to bookmark this property for any future travels to Seattle.
Suitable for our stay
Be aware...steep sets of stairs up to 3rd floor! A bit taxing even for me a strong 72 yr. old in good shape who was schlepping a suitcase and purse! Rooms were clean. Some issues: The floors slant in the "twin bed" bedroom causing one to roll to edge of the mattress and have covers end up on floor every day! No reason this has not been adjusted. Heavy velvet curtains really helped as did the "sound mechanism" as this corner apt. is very noisy at night! (The master bedroom needs similar curtains as the ones there are very flimsy). We never expected to have a shooting directly below our windows at 2:45 in the morning!!! ....police, ambulances, fire trucks...you name it...they were all there. "Party City" out front that ended in a major confrontation. In the bath- room, the towel rack came off on the left side and, after looking at it, it had been poorly attached to the wall. Never saw or had a phone call from anyone of the management team in our five days there...expected this to happen BUT !!! Seattle has incredible restaurants and art: we especially coveted the Chihully exhibit and the Pikes Market tour we took at 9:30am with Hillary..she made our day and filled us with food and laughter! We loved walking everywhere...easily got in 5 1/2 miles a day as the location was perfect for us! BUT it was very distressing to have to walk over men sleeping in the middle of the sidewalks at all hrs. of the day in the Capitol neighborhood...not to mention the mat-tresses half-in doorways and on sidewalks!! Out walking one early evening, I was startled by one homeless man in a group of 10 as he jumped up and gave me a bear hug, claiming he loved the purple streak in my white hair! The trash and litter on the side- walks and curbs certainly left one with an impression of a dirty city. Why are there no street and sidewalk cleaners?....could put lots of homeless to work. Enjoyed the local shops and diners: major treat was the Soi restaurant which has been open only a month...just a short distance from front door of the apt. Excellent cuisine and cocktails (ask for Jack the bartender and meet the partner owners and the chef. So hospitable; wait staff knew how to care for customers!) The guys in the sandwich shop who had our keys were so helpful and fun; our sandwiches were more than adequate and delicious. Must admit that I was incredulous when your directions asked us to take out the garbage and recycled items!! And to do so in the rain! Absolutely ridiculous!
Great accommodations, fit our needs perfectly!
We came to Seattle for a conference at the convention center and needed two bedrooms. This apartment met and exceeded our expectations. Not only did it have the 2 bedrooms, but also a nice sitting area. Everything was cleaning and functioning. It was an easy walk to the convention center - a little tougher on the way back up the hill. There is a grocery and restaurants close by (and Molly Moons for ice cream). We would definitely recommend if you are looking for a little more space than a hotel room.
The Apartment was clean & secure! Thank you!
The St. John's apartments were easy to find. The apartment was secure and clean. We loved having so many amenities close by - groceries, restaurants, etc.
Was a super great location, clean, homey and quiet. Convenient to everything needed. Nice space and recommend this over a hotel any day!
The Pike Street Market is just down the hill, and to get there you walk right past the Washington State Convention Center and through the center of the city's shopping district, past Nordstrom's and Macy's, etc, From the Market, you go left to the Seattle Art Museum, further down First Avenue is Pioneer Square, To your right is Belltown, another Seattle neighborhood filled with clubs, and stores, From there, the Seattle Center, where you'll find the Space Needle and the Experience Music Project.
