Question: I have not seen the Moore Hotel recommended here. A friend of mine suggested it for our two families travelling in late August for ball games. What do you think of it?
Answer: The Moore Hotel is a charming and unique hotel that can be a great choice for families. There are many room choices, from Euro-style with shared bathrooms to mini-apartments with kitchenettes. The location is fantastic – a short walk from Pike Place Market and above a great little coffee shop. The only reason I wouldn’t recommend this hotel for you is that there’s no air conditioning. In August, you’d likely want the windows at least cracked, and there will be a fair amount of street noise from below. Plus, it’s a bit of a hike to the baseball stadium. If you’re traveling specifically for ball games, I’d recommend the Silver Cloud Seattle Stadium (near the stadium with a great outdoor pool), Embassy Suites Pioneer Square (brand new, great indoor pool, walkable to the stadium), or Best Western Plus Pioneer Square (lower price point, breakfast included, walkable to the stadium).
