Review: Four Points by Sheraton Seattle Airport South Hotel

Earlier this year, I visited The Four Points Seattle Airport South hotel. Here's a trip report of my stay there.

Location

The Four Points is located a few miles south of Seattle-Tacoma (SEA) Airport in a somewhat residential neighborhood. By car, it's about a 10-15 minute drive without traffic.

Check-In

I arrived around 9:30pm and entered the lobby. The space felt impressive in scale, with double-height ceilings and dramatic hanging lights. A friendly staff member checked me in and confirmed that I had been upgraded to a Loft Suite, thanks to my SPG Platinum status. The hotel opened in 2016 and was celebrating it's one year anniversary during my stay. Everything felt fresh and new.

Adjacent to the reception area is a pantry with grab-and-go snacks, as well as some seating areas. The hotel has two elevator banks that serve the guest floors. I made my way to the 7th floor and down the hallway to room 706.

The Loft Suite

The Loft Suite at the Four Points is over 1,000 sq. ft and can sleep up to four people. I entered the room and found myself in a small corridor with a guest bathroom on the left. The hallway led to a 4-person dining/conference room with a window, buffet table, and sink.

To the right was a doorway leading to the living room, which opened up to a massive, double-height room with floor-to-ceiling windows. These were probably the tallest ceilings I've experienced in a hotel room.

The main living area was furnished with a work desk, swivel chair, couch, two plush armless chairs, a coffee table, an armoire, some side tables, and lamps. A television was hanging opposite the seating area, over the desk. The full-length curtains in this space were so tall that they had motorized controls to open and close. These long curtains added a lot of drama to the space; I couldn't get over the ceiling height. The view outside my room was unremarkable, though apparently some rooms offer beautiful water and mountain views.

There were a few amenities on offer in the armoire, including a coffee machine and iron.

At the back of the room was a staircase and open hallway leading to the bedroom door.

The bedroom had a king-sized bed along with nightstands, a chair, a dresser, a TV, and a full-length mirror. A multi-outlet charging device next to the bed was a welcome inclusion, though only offered on one nightstand.

The ensuite master bathroom was quite spacious. Everything was clean and felt brand-new.

Shower products were in pump dispensers on the wall. There were also mouthwash, lotion, and hand soaps by the sink.

WiFi

WiFi was free throughout the hotel. I found the connection to be pretty stable in my room, though not especially fast.

Room Service

This Four Points hotel offers in-room dining, but only for breakfast and dinner. I found the breakfast options to be solid and plentiful, though I didn't find as many appealing vegetarian-friendly options on the dinner menu. 

There is also a small restaurant on-site, though it too only serves breakfast and dinner. You'll have to go off-site or find a nearby restaurant that delivers if you want to eat lunch at the hotel. This was surprising to me, as this is a self-described airport hotel - one would guess that guests are arriving and leaving at various times throughout the day. This property must not have many guests staying on premises during the day, though.

Fitness Center

The hotel's gym is located on the mezzanine level of the lobby. I went for a quick workout mid-day and was the only person there. I found the equipment and space to be pretty standard; there was adequate cardio and strength training equipment.

Overall Thoughts

The Four Points by Sheraton Seattle Airport South Hotel is a very solid choice if you're in the area for business. The space is fresh and well appointed for this price point. If you can upgrade to a Loft Suite, you'll get plenty of space to spread out and even entertain. I wouldn't necessarily choose this hotel for a short airport layover, since it's not immediately adjacent to SeaTac airport, but would happily stay here again if I were visiting the area.
