About the property

Studio, One Bath Condo In The Heart Of Downtown Seattle

Live like a Seattleite. In the heart of downtown Seattle, our location is rated a “walker’s paradise” with a 96 out of 100 walkability score. Next to the Washington State Convention Center, 8 blocks from the Pike Place Market, near all major medical facilities (ie. Virginia Mason, Swedish Hospital, Polyclinic, Harborview Medical Center, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center) and the central business district, our location is ideal whether you are staying in Seattle for business, vacation or medical treatment. Our studio condo will sleep two people with a cozy queen bed with memory foam mattress in the living room where there is also a comfortable sitting area. We have portacribs available for an extra fee if needed. This condo has a full kitchen and bath. We provide a blue ray DVDs so bring your Netflix or Amazon Prime account number to watch your favorite programs. Wireless internet is included and printers are available upon request. Full laundry facilities are available in the building. Portable air conditioning is provided in the condo May through September. Parking available for an added fee or at no charge for extended stays based upon availability. Whether planning a short term or extended stay in this magnificent city, Seattle Suites is here to help you make your visit a memorable one.

The Pike/Pine Corridor, recently call ”Sesame Street for Grownups” by Seattle Met magazine, has become one of Seattle’s most popular and trendy downtown neighborhoods. It is an eclectic mix of businesses, boutiques, art galleries, restaurants, theaters and pubs. From the Elektra head west on Pike and you will be in the middle of all that downtown has to offer. Or stroll east up Pike to discover true Seattle neighborhood culture. Check out the kitschy shops and pick up a great read at the Elliott Bay bookstore before lunching at Boom Noodle or other favorite neighborhood restaurant. Don’t forget to save room for dessert at Cupcake Royal on your way back home. Living at the Elektra you will be steps from all the usual Seattle landmarks while immersing yourself in our urban chic Seattle culture.

About Becki Snellenberg

Becki Snellenberg, Owner and Manager since 1998. I am proud to have consistently held an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. Traveling internationally for 16 years as a management consultant with Microsoft I learned how challenging business travel can be. My best experiences were when I stayed in vacation rentals rather than hotels. I was glad to give up hotel services to stay in a homelike environment with a full kitchen and experience living like a local, particularly when my family traveled with me. After adopting two more children I decided it was time to give up the traveling life and stay closer to home. Starting up this business was just a natural for me. We currently own a few properties and professionally manage properties for several other owners and the same building. Because we have a great reputation in the Seattle vacation rental industry and want to keep it, we are very selective about the properties we take on and ensure that our owners keep their properties up to the highest possible standards. I look forward to helping you make your stay in Seattle a memorable one.

Why Becki Snellenberg chose Central

Fabulous location in the heart of downtown. We bought here because we were impressed by the style of a 1940's building which was updated to condos in the 1990's. The updates were tastefully done while retaining much of the charm of the era. The Elektra Homeowners' CC&R's specifically allow for rentals of 3 days or more making this a great place to buy for owners who wanted to keep a second home in the city, or who find that they need to travel extensively in their profession and have their units empty much of the time. These are the owners we represent. Our owners invest a lot of personal care into maintaining their units because they want to feel as if they are welcoming guests into their own home - which is exactly what they are doing. We have so enjoyed hosting people from all over the country and the world coming to Seattle for temporary work, for relocation, to attend conventions, for medical treatment, to visit family or just to experience this fabulous city and all that it has to offer.

What makes this condo unique

Walking distance to theater, restaurants, shopping, Pike Place Market, Waterfront, Museums, nightlife. Tucked into a quiet side street next to the Convention Center, we escape much of the ordinary noise and street traffic you would find in a downtown area, yet are steps from all the life, vibrancy and activity that downtown has to offer. The trendy Pike Pine neighborhood is one of the most up and coming neighborhoods in Seattle. Our guests also enjoy the convenience of nearby grocery stores, restaurants and shops of any small neighborhood. For those coming to town to access some of the finest medical facilities in the country, we are also very close. We are two blocks from Virginia Mason and easy walking distance to Swedish and Harborview hospitals.

Getting around downtown is a breeze. Most things are within easy walking distance. But you will also find easily accessible transportation within blocks of our condo. In addition to the metro bus system, you can hop on the Monorail to quickly get the Seattle Center (Space Needle, Key Arena, McCaw Hall, Seattle Repertory theater, Chihuly Museum, Experience Music Project.), catch the South Lake Union Transit to the fast growing South Lake Union neighborhood (Amazon, REI, MOHAI, new Biomed Research companies), take the light rail to the SODO district (Century Link Field, Safeco Field, Pioneer Square, International District) or take the light rail all the way to the airport. If you need to rent a car to travel out of town, there is a Budget Car rental agency next door and a Hertz agency a few blocks away.

Great location! Perfect space for two people. Everything you need within walking distance. The space was clean and had all the amenities needed for our stay. The view from the roof, at night especially, was fantastic. Met some of the long term tenants and had great conversations with them.

Great value for great location

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfectly located for my husband's conference at the convention center, checking in and out a breeze while there the coffee pot was having issues and it was warmer than usual in Seattle so an extra fan was needed. I called the manager and he had both a new coffee pot and a fan there very promptly . I would recommend the Elektra and we will be back, perhaps a little closer to spring or fall as no air conditioning was not ideal but we made it work !!

Convenient to downtown and hospital hill.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment has everything needed for a short stay. Kitchen is well equipped. Apartment is comfortable and secure.

The Uber driver had a little trouble finding it. It is located alongside the freeway. GPS didn't distinguish it and the freeway well, and he took a wrong turn. Quickly corrected.
