Couldn’t have a better location. We walked everywhere with total ease. The Rolling Stones played at the Seahawks stadium and took us 16mins to walk there. 1st ave is filled with amazing little joints to hang in. And the penthouse suite FAR surpassed our wildest dreams. Worth every penny!!!

We loved the location and view of this property. The only issue we had was in leaving, you need to use the key to get to the garage and you are turn the keys into the concierges! You can’t turn in the keys and then get out of the garage. It would be nice to be able to pull out of the garage and just get on the toad considering the garage is a couple streets away from the concierge. It it was a small inconvenience. It was a great stay.

We loved the Harbor Steps penthouse condo for its great views of the Harbor and waterfront as well as its location. We were within walking distance of the best Seattle has to offer...attractions, restaurants, and shopping. The unit had great views including Mt. Rainer, Elliot Bay, and the waterfront. Our family of four adults were comfortable with the spaciousness of the condo.

This is the second time I have stayed in the apartment. I cannot fault it. The location in Belltown is great with loads of funky bars on the doorstep but only 15mins walk from downtown. There is a fantastic (and genuinely French) Boulangerie right next door. The viowes are amazing - look right - there's the space needle, straight ahead (from the balcony) a panorama of Puget sound. And Rainer to the left. For 5 sharing it was a lot cheaper than a hotel and better in every way. Love this apartment and will stay here next time I come to my favourite US city.

Our 4 night stay was really nice. We could walk to almost all the things we had planned and the view was spectacular. The concierge was helpful and very friendly. There is nothing I could recommend that would have made it any better.

Amazing views! The condo was perfect for our group of 8. Plenty of space and nice kitchen.

Beautiful views from the 25th floor! Be sure and be there for the fireworks show from the Space Needle!

Great location and gorgeous views. Easy , clear communication with company. We had a very nice time in Seattle at this place for 4 days. Clean. Well stocked. No issues.
Wendy . Jul 2018
This place had great views and common spaces. The master was spacious. The two additional rooms are on the small side. A nice place for a family trip to Seattle.
Travis . Jun 2018
What can I say? The views are just amazing! All of Elliot bay through 1 set of windows, watching all the ships go by, and the Space Needle out the other windows. Decor was very nice and adequately supplied. Right in the middle of town. Walk to the Pike Place Market in 1 direction. Seattle Center in the other. Not to mention all the close by restaurants on 1st Ave. It was nice to have secure parking in the garage as well. Would definitely stay again!

We had a fantastic rental experience. The property is very clean and the location is perfect. Incredible views of the entire downtown with the Space Needle literally outside the window. There are also nice amenities like a hot tub, indoor pool & billiards room. Also plenty of places to eat right in Belltown.

We all enjoyed our stay with such a great location, great view, and easy access to lots of things to do. The apartment was very clean, lots of towels, and a washer/dryer too!
John S. Sep 2016
25th floor and spectacular views. Close to everything we wanted to see. If you like Italian food (not just spaghetti and meatballs) check out Assaggio, just a short walk from the apartment. The apt was perfect for our party of 6. Clean, quiet, confortable, well situated. Would definitely stay there again.

My two sisters and I stayed at Centennial Tower Bay View Suite for three nights in August. We loved the location of the condo, central to everything going on in Seattle. The condo was clean and beds comfortable. We spent so much time exploring the city that we used the kitchen for breakfast only, but it was stocked well, with great cookware.

:Awesome!! Amazing location. Clean, well equipped, and nicely decorated. We walked to Pike Market, Seattle center & the wharf easily. Phenomenal views from all windows!! Perfect vacation rental!

Overall good location and nice condo. Well equipped kitchen and baths. Very clean. Worked well for our family. Great view of the waterfront and Space Needle. Nicely decorated older building with portable AC in the unit. Only negative was hot tub out of service and maintenance being done on deck and patio.

The views from this condo are not capturable with pictures. The perfect location. We had a rental van for our weekend and ended up leaving it parked. We walked to breakfast and lunch and all the top sites. There's a great French bakery next door! I can't say enough about this rental. Beautiful and peaceful and made our first stay in Seattle full of memories and we can't wait to come back! Will for sure be back to this exact rental!

This apartment is perfectly located, beautiful view, and spacious for the whole family. We cooked almost all of our meals here, of course getting supplies from Pikes Market and walking all around the town.
Lisa S. Sep 2015
This was a wonderful, perfect place for us to stay. Excellent location with amazing views. It was open and spacious. It fit 8 of us perfectly.
Scott H. Jul 2015
We enjoyed our stay at Centennial Tower in July. It was a great central point for all of the activities we wanted to do and was within walking distance of it all. It offered, I'm my opinion, the best view of the city. Mt. Rainier, Peugeot sound and the Space Needle were in our windows!
Greg T. Jul 2015
Great location--We walked everywhere. The views from the apartment were fantastic! Very comfortable for the six of us.
