Guestbook comments from the manager

The Alfred Harbor Steps was a great location for all of Seattle's sights. We were one couple and one single adult. We walked to Pike Street Market almost everyday and the well equipped kitchen was great for cooking the seafood goodies we got there.The condo was roomy for three people and the bathrooms were huge.Great views! Good restaurants within fifty feet of the door and good recommendations from the stayalfred app. The cost was less than half of the hotels in the area so a great value too.

Recommended for: Romantic getaway, girls getaway, age 55+, tourists without a car, families with young children, families with teenagers.

Enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Harbour Steps was enjoyable. The location was beyond our expectations. We could walk everywhere we wanted to go.

Perfect location, poor night's sleep

  • 4 of 5

Would definitely consider another Stay Alfred rental in the future, but probably not this particular unit because of the noise at night.


- fantastic location, Pike Place Market, waterfront, aquarium, walking to plenty of restaurants and shopping, etc.

- furnishings adequate (though not super comfortable)

- nice to have full kitchen (though we only reheated leftovers) and washer/dryer

- plenty of towels and supplies

Not so thrilled about...

- this is a 2nd story unit right over the sidewalk, with a busy bar/restaurant right below... street noise is a factor pretty much all night long, even with the windows closed

- window blinds do not block the morning sunlight, especially when using portable A/C unit

- the portable A/C unit provided is designed to be used with window open somewhat, so we went without A/C at night in early August

- uncomfortable bed in bedroom (sofa bed was more comfortable)

- bathtub could use repair, it worked fine but looks worn out

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Great location, close to market and lots of shops and restaurants. Nice building and convenient parking in garage. Room was clean and amenities were nice. Pillows were very flat and beds were not very comfortable. Also the street noise was loud through the closed widows. No central AC so it was hot but there was a loud portable AC unit that had to have a hose hanging out the window. Other than that, it was nice.

Central Location

  • 4 of 5

Centrally located in downtown Seattle near restaurants, nightlife, shops & sights. The 2 bedroom apartment was large enough for my family of 5.

Carpet area near the kitchen & dining area had numerous spots that needed cleaning

Stay Alfred is definitely the way to go!

  • 5 of 5

Stay Alfred is definitely the way to go! The location of our unit was perfect, we were close to everything. The apartment was very clean and had anything we needed. We had four people in our party and had a 1 bedroom unit. Plenty of room for all of us! The pull out sofa was quite comfortable. The people at the front desk were very friendly and helpful and allowed us to leave our luggage in a locked, secure area when we arrived early. The whole experience was positive from start to finish. I will always chose Stay Alfred over a hotel given the opportunity! You won't be disappointed if you choose Stay Alfred!

Great Trip!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay! We had 2 adults and 2 teenage girls. The building amenities such as the pool and basketball court were a great plus at the end of a busy day. The location was amazing! I spent a considerable amount of time researching where to stay, and this was by far the best bang for my buck Short walk to the waterfront and to Pike's Market which is amazing. Target was close by for groceries and things we forgot. Everyone that we encountered was very friendly. Amazing food at the Bistro next door. Loved the balcony and having a cup of coffee in the morning to start the day. Amazing experience and I would do it again in a heartbeat!
