In the clouds
Everything is all right there for you. If you have an elder with the cab system works perfect to conquer the hills. We stayed in twice and cooked fab meals just to enjoy the view from our condo.
You can not open any windows and carry on a conversation due to the traffic noise right beneath us. Didn't like that. Noisy 24/7

Know your Pool Status
Pool was closed for planned maintenance throughout our stay; a big factor to family with four young kids. Company agent ought to have known, forewarned. The pool was a big reason we chose this rental....then to not have it available, for predictable maintenance reasons was extremely disappointing.
All esle went very well. The appartmetn is great & well kept. The location was exceptionally convenient. One minor critique is that the two living area chairs are pretty far past their prime/no longer comfortable. I would return, but hae learned to ask specifics about pool, etc without assuming staff awareness.
Perfect spot to stay!
We stayed for a long weekend. Having two young kids the property was easy to walk the aquarium and Pike Place. The kids loved the view and all of the amenities including the pool. Would highly recommend the condo.

Extended family weekend
Management was very accommodating of early check in + delayed check out due to extenuating circumstances. The location was superb with easy access to Pike Market, restaurants and attractions. The view from the 16th floor is spectacular. A more detailed list of nearby restaurants would be helpful.

Great time in Seatlle over the Holidays. Location was perfect!
We were on the 16th floor and had an awesome view. Unfortunately, the sun didn't shine much but I would definitely go back and stay at the same place.
Response from Sea to Sky Rentals - 02/11/2013
Hello Sharon! Thank you so much for your review! While I'm glad you were able to enjoy the awesome view, I'm sorry the sun wasn't out more for you. If I could, I would schedule sunshine.

Best possible Seattle experience
Absolutely stunning views. Great location for everything we wanted - walk to Pike Place Market in the morning, explore central Seattle and the waterfront or a shor t walk to Monorail for Space Needle, EMP and Science Center.
Apartment has everything you need, including lots of storage space (the closets could sleep a few more people!) and the couch bed is bery comfortable (and you can enjoy the spectacular views all night). There was also a stool for little ones to reach the bathroom sinks.
Arrange parking at the aprtment, it makes it all so easy!
The Seattle Pass was a great value for us.
Everyone I spoke to at Sea to Sky was very friendly and helpful.
We stayed with 2 young children (5 and 2) and older parents (75/80) and we were all very well accomodated and all loved it.
Lynden, Washington, United States
Fabulous stay at Harbor Steps #1620, amazing place!
We were incredibly lucky to find this apartment available for a short stay in Seattle, celebrating my dad's 80th birthday. There were 6 of us - 4 adults and 2 children and it was a perfect fit.
We arrived in the early evening and enjoyed a spectacular sunset over the harbor. My dad's pretty hard to please and he was impressed with everything, but especially enjoyed watching the planes on approach to SeaTac and Boeing Field, a route he used to fly.
Everyone at Sea to Sky was friendly and helpful. The apartment was very clean and well-appointed, even a step stool for the little ones to use in the bathroom. The closet in the second bedroom could have accommodated another 2 people, it was so big and the couch bed was very comfortable and benefited from the great views. The location can't be beat, Pike Place and the Piers on your doorstep and the Science Center/Space Needle/EMP a short ride away on the monorail.
My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer.
Highly highly recommended.

We couldn't ask for a more centrally located and nicely appointed condo to accommodate our family of 2 adults and 2 children comfortably - walk everywhere, w/easy access to monorail/subway, etc. for more distant locales. Heated pool and spa a big plus in cold weather, too. Rental property staff is top-notch. Building management needs to make repairs/replace blinds in most rooms (several broken two years-running now) and towel bar in master bath fell off the wall removing bath towel! Little things like shower curtain hooks missing - small updates would make a big difference to make this a first-class rental.
Response from Sea to Sky Rentals - 10/16/2012
Hello Denise! Thank you so much for taking time to write a review. The pool and the spa are nice extras and you're right; the location can't be beat! My sincere apology about the blinds. They do tend to fall off, and despite our offer to install alternative window coverings at our own expense, the building will not allow it. I have passed along your comments about the towel bar and shower curtain hooks. Thank you for bringing that to our attention. We always appreciate details!

Great stay and a fantastic view
We were blown away by the 180° view on the bay from this 16th floor apartment. The property was spacious, well equipped and very comfortable for five people (two parents and three children). The only drawback was the noise coming from the highway below, which made it practically impossible to keep the door to the balcony or any window open.
Response from Sea to Sky Rentals - 08/27/2012
Hello Christophe! Thank you so much for your review of Harbor Steps 1620. I'm sorry the street noise was a distraction for you, but I'm glad the spacious property and beautiful views made up for it!

Awesome location, noise a problem
Sea to sky were great. Bathroom and bedroom doors didn't lock and we couldn't close the blinds, they were going to send someone to fix those things but never did! It was quite hot during the time we stayed so we had to leave the windows open at night and the noise from traffic was enough to keep you awake!

Hello Janet! Thank you so much for taking the time to provide us with feedback on your stay. I apologize for the inconveience you experienced with the doors and blinds.

Great property, perfect location. Street noise could be an issue but it didn't bother us since it adds to the "urban" experience. The unit was very well outfitted and the layout is great, very roomy. The building was excellent and we used the fitness room on rainy days.
Tyler, Tx, United States
Beats a hotel room anyday
We were very happy about the location and convenience-Lighting at the dining table in the
evening was poor-no overhead light to play cards or board games after dark-standing lamps
were not bright enough. The road noise was
significant during the week so needed more
than 2 sets of earplugs for the 4 of us-minuses
not enough to discourage a 2nd visit!

Harbor Steps #1620 - Amazing view and wonderfully comfortable
We visited Seattle for Christmas and New Years as my son moved to the city in November from Long Island, NY. Orginally had hotels booked but at the last minute decided on a more homelike place. Sea2Sky was extrememly helpful in finding a location close to my son's apartment. The views were amazing, that was one of the draws to that location over another, watching the harbor and the view of the mountains and yes we could see Mt. Rainer a time or two. The beds were comfortable, the storage for luggage and clothing was excellent, the bathrooms were roomy. The kitchen had most of what you would need. We had to improvise a little for Christmas dinner. Missed having dishtowels to dry hand washed items, but we went to Sur la Table and I purchased some that I could bring home. I also bought a toaster oven and then let my son take that for his place. The road noise was a little more prominent than I expected, but once adjusted to it, I did not notice it at much. However when the wind blew their was alot of whistle noise from the windows, but that was only a couple of nights when the fronts rolled through. I do recommend that the blower fan in the baseboard heater in the dining area be looked at, it was very noisy, the fans in both bathrooms were extremely noisy as well. But those are small maintenance items that really are normal when you stay in places that are not inhabited on a daily bases. We loved the apartment and most likely will stay there again when we have a long stay in Seattle. The location was phenomenal! Pike's Place marktet for fish and vegetables was a wonderful experience and then to come back and cook them. Thank you Michelle for recommended this to me! I am blessed to have spent the holidays in such a homey place and not a drab hotel!
Very Pleasant Stay
Can't beat the location and amazing harbor view. Perfect for family get-away.
Brisbane, , AUSTRALIA
Only comment would be that the property really needs double glazing. We found the noise from the Alaskan Way road quite intrusive at times.
HH at Harbor
This is a great property in a great location. It is well maintained and everything was as it should be. I lived in Seattle for 25 years on QA so it was great to stay in the heart of the city and close to the Pike Place Market
great stay with a couple of exceptions
the location is fabulous and the view could not be better The kitchen is adequately equipped and given the weather when we were there we appreciated the extra fans! When we arrived we found half empty food containers stuck to the top of the garbage cupboard in kitchen but other than that the rooms were clean. the lock on the door was not working but the response to fixing it was prompt asn professional All in all we would recommend it!!!
A Fantastic Stay in Seattle!
We were so pleased with the accommodations and the excellent service we received from Sea to Sky Rentals. Exceptional views, great location and a perfect place to stay with good friends.
Loved staying at harbor steps 1620! Great location, great services in building, great unit with everything you could need!! Reserved baby gear and "box of toys" from sea to sky and it was seamless! Our son keeps asking when we get to go back to "our apartment".
Loved having gym, pool and huge common outdoor space to bbq and relax with family.
Burnaby, BC, Canada
We had a fantastic time during our stay. Location is great, views are amazing! Only downside was that it was a bit expensive, and with 3 couples, only 1 got a nice bed. One was on the sofa bed and the other room was 2 twins. Would be great for a family,
This was a beautiful...
This was a beautiful apartment and fabulous location for our family to stay in and enjoy Seattle.
Only suggestion would be to get a better a/c unit in there since it really did not work well enough to keep the unit cool.
Best Seattle View
This was a beautiful condo with a fantastic view and a wonderful downtown location! The Sea and Sky staff were awesome to work with also. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to see Seattle IN STYLE!!!
Fabulous View and Walk to Everything
It was our first visit to Seattle. We were attending a conference at the convention center. We rode the Metro Light Rail from the airport to University just 3 blks away for just $2.75. The apt was nicely furnished and comfortable. There is road noise outside so leaving the balcony door open is not a great option but TERRIFIC views and amenities. Walking distance to Pike Place Mkt, Waterfront, Convention Ctr, and Great cafes and restaurants. The Property Mgr was very helpful.
3 Nights in Downtown Seattle
Very clean, practical rental located in a convenient part of downtown. Check-in and check-out was not the most convenient, but common for this type of condo rental. The unit had been recently re-painted and new carpet- a nice surprise. Balcony is smallish, but nice for fresh air and the sounds of the city.
West Linn, OR

Our only complaint would be that the apartment is loud from traffic with the windows and doors open, but the view and location is amazing and it's a trade off.

Harbor Steps Seattle, a great location to visit a great city
This is our second time staying at Harbor Steps. The condo was very nice and provided our family with a comfortable place to stay during our visit. The views were priceless! The location is great. We strolled to Pike Place Market each morning for coffee and pastries. We walked to the ferry to go to Bainbridge. We walked to the baseball stadium and to the Bank of America building. The condo had lots of amenities and the concierge was very helpful with directions. We rarely stay in the same place twice but this was a no brainer! The online reservation process was very easy and they provided all the info and directions needed.
Mayfield, NSW, Australia
Great place to stay
The apartment was fantastic. The location and view were brilliant. The apartment was really well equipped and wonderfully clean. And only a block and a bit from the airport light rail - for $2.50.
We had a great visit and enjoyed the location. We had difficulty with our keyless key and felt that the front desk was a little irritated with us. But it was resolved. The front desk could be more friendly to the people using the property even if they are not living there.
Austin M.'s review of Harbor Steps #1620
Great location. Close to restaurants and Pike's Market. We were supposed to have an early check-in (1 pm) but our keys arrived 2.5 hours late...kinda irritating with all our luggage. Also, we had to push the twin beds together and hunt for sheets since we wanted to sleep next to each other. Other than that, great location, best view ever.
What a great New Year's
This was the perfect place to have a family getaway with grown kids. There was so much for all of them to do all within walking distance. The view was spectacular!
Conference and Friends
It was great being in such a nice location and the view is truly 180o over the water. I think the owner should replace the missing blinds so that whoever sleeps in the LR can get some darkness. A small table near the front door for keys, etc. would be nice. An end table or a large tray on the coffee table would be nice so one can put a drink down (the coffee table is a trunk and it's padded on top so that it can't be a table). The kitchen is beautiful equipped and did I mention how super wonderful the location is?
Carramar, WA, Australia
Fantastic location, very close to Pike Place Markets and other waterfront activities. Apartment was very spacious only downfall was the noise from freeway outside all night.
Palo Alto, CA
Everything was great except...
Everything was great except that the air conditioning didn't work well so the unit was SO hot and stuffy. But the view was amazing!
Great location, but hot and noisy
The apartment was in a great location, and the view was stunning. However, it was incredibly hot and the single airconditioner was inadequate to cool even the one room it was installed in. Windows had to be left open all night in the bedrooms, making it difficult to sleep through the very loud traffic noise. The vertical blinds had numerous missing slat that prevented us from fully covering the windows, therefore, the afternoon sun further heated the apartment.
I suggest installing a larger capacity airconditioner during the summer months and replacing the vertical blinds in the living room with window shades that could fully block the sun from adding heat to the apartment.
Lacking in Maintenance and Parking - Outstanding View and Locati
Among many maintenance issues, the vertical blinds were missing many slats. This is an issue when the property faces west. The window that allowed the AC to circulate air was closed so it didn't work until we found a way to open the window. Mold in the grout of the showers. Parking garage a nightmare. No maps supplied and we were lost for 45 minutes trying to find the right elevator. No map of the facility. The whirlpool was scummy. Location and view were great. Bed comfortable. Hated the one bar of honey soap that was supplied in the bathrooms.
The location was FANTASTIC!...
The location was FANTASTIC! The curtains should be repaired and upgraded, the sun woke us up VERY early every morning. The portable air conditioner was not good enough to cool the whole unit. When they advertise air conditioning the company really needs to specify that it is for the living room area only. The bedrooms are cooled with a portable fan. Despite those two problems, the location was unbeatable. I would stay there again just for the view and location. We were within walking distance to the market and waterfront. We were able to use the bus system to get us everywhere else. The view of Mt. Rainier was breathtaking.
Gorgeous room, view and location. Only about a block from the Market. It is worth the extra 15 a day for parking. I will definitely book the same place when my family comes back into town. The one mistake was were were double book in a community room we had reserved. After a conversation with the manager it was quickly remedied.
AMAZING WEEKEND IN SEATTLE
Our weekend in Seattle was amazing. The property has breath taking views. It was very clean. Loved having the grocery package there upon arrival. However, I would recommend the owners invest in better kitchenware and more blankets. Sea to Sky Rentals were very helpful. We will be going back soon :)**** Jeff Wellmaker and Leah Rolen and the kiddos ****
wonderful location but bring some caulk
Harbor steps is located in the center of it all. walking distance to all major attractions. the unit was clean and had an unobstructed view of Elliot bay and the Olympic Mountains. A couple of real negatives were the traffic noise and the drafty windows. the wind was blowing really hard the first night we stayed and the wind was blowing through the gaps in the windows so hard it was making the curtains rattle and was whistling so loud the whole family was up at 5am as we couldn't sleep. drafty would we an understatement. bring some caulk.
Best place we have ever stayed in while in Seattle
This was the best place we have ever stayed in while in Seattle. It was so close to everything we wanted to do. The views were breathtaking photographic opportunities.
The people from Sea to Sky were so friendly and helpful we have already referred them to many of our friends.
Mayne Island, BC, Canada
great view, close to everything...BUT very, very noisy. Bring ear plugs, or won't sleep. Hwy 99 ROARS all day and all night. Can't recommend it because of the noise. Windows should be replaced, the noise comes through around the edges.
Fun in Seattle
We were in Seattle to see our daughter perform and loved watching the activity on the water and view was great. The traffic was a little noisy for us country folks, but other than that we loved it.
We had previously stayed in 1520. We moved up to 1620 thinking it would be exactly the same, only one more floor removed from the street noise below. The configuration of the master bedroom was quite different and not nearly as much to our liking. However, it was a bit quieter. Other than that, it was a wonderful family experience for us.
Nice "home base" for our Seattle vacation!
Sea to Sky Rentals was great. There was some confusion with picking up a box that was shipped beforehand and getting a high chair that fit a pedestal table, but everything was taken care of quickly. It was great to have a stackable washer/dryer in the unit...we used it everyday in this rainy city! The view of the ferries was fantastic. The location was also great...we walked to Pike Place market and to the monorail terminal several times.
I'd go back at the drop of a hat!
Had a fabulous gals' getaway in Seattle with my sisters, and this property's location is the best! Walk to Pike Place Market, Seattle Center, Aquarium, wharf, and Pioneer Square. Seattle Art Museum and cute coffee houses right across the street. Best of all, the view of Puget Sound from the windows and small balcony is stunning. You can even see Mount Ranier when the weather cooperates. Ferries to Bainbridge (and other islands), as well as the West Seattle water taxi are right here. Urban amenities with a glorious natural view. Excellent little market right next door run by super-nice people. In fact,everyone in Seattle treated us with warmth and respect during our visit. We all just loved the city and our deluxe apartment in the sky! The only reason I do not give a five star rating based on property condition is that we traveled during a record heat spell and there is no central AC. However, a portable unit and fans were provided, and we were able to cool off. Due to the property's urban location, expect traffic noise from below. The view from the master bedroom and living room is drop-dead gorgeous, and the sofa bed is even comfortable. Twin beds in second bedroom can be converted to queen. Very nice kitchen and baths. Very nicely furnished, pacious and comfortable--better closet and dresser space than my home! Our group of four just loved it. Large groups could even rent multiple units in the building. The balcony would not be a good place for small children but would otherwise be family friendly.
In Seattle during the heat wave - the condo definitely needs help with keeping the place cooler. Bedrms were stifling hot even with fan; vertical blinds do little to keep out heat - perhaps sunblocking drapes would be helpful. In order to have some air circulating had to open the windows, which meant it was extremely noisy, so much that it was not easy to have a normal volume conversation. The condo is very well appointed, and within walking distance of all we wanted. downtown. P.S. Nanaimo is spelled incorrectly below
Great Location. Great View.
We enjoyed our stay at Harbor Steps. We were 2 blocks from Pike Market, across the street from the Seattle Art Museum and 1 block from the Docks (great restaurants, some shops and harbor cruises). We parked our car on the premises--very convenient, in and out with a passcard.
The only complaints were the noise (it overlooks Puget Sound by way of the highway) and the temperature (the retrofitted air conditioning unit was loud and not effective). Since we were out visiting most of the time, this did not bother us too much.
I would definitely go back.
Immaculate condo, centrally located, great view!
This condo was perfect for some first time visitors to Seattle. We were just steps from most places that we wanted to visit including Pioneer Square, the pier to catch the ferry to Bainbridge Island, and Pike Market. The views of the bay, the mountains, and the stadiums were great. We were in Seattle on three very hot days (high temps in the 90s and no rain) but the condo did cool down just enough to be comfortable in the evenings with the use of fans in the bedrooms -though it was warm. The traffic noise is quite loud so the fans were also good to help block out that noise at night. It would not be possible to sleep with the windows open for this reason. The condo was very, very clean and parking in the underground garage was convenient.
Discovery Bay, CA
Harbor Steps 1620
Very central location. Some traffic noise due to location near freeway. Air conditioning inadequate for warm temperatures but if blinds were kept closed and air running all day it was bearable. It was very clean, no problems. Better lighting in living room to read by would be helpful and another comfortable chair.
San Diego, CA
The location is excellent. The furnishings are dark and look very used. The kitchen is not equipped very well as far as pots and pans go. We have stayed in another unit there that was much nicer with almost the same view.
loved every minute
We loved every minute of our stay in #1620. The Condo was lovely and provided all we needed, the location was perfect, we could walk to everything we needed or catch the bus. Thanks for a wonderful vacation
A perfect way to enjoy the best of Seattle as a tourist. We walked to the market daily to purchase fresh fish for dinner and ate, watching the sun set over the Olympics and the ferries on the sound. Great location.
Salt Lake City, UT
Harbor Steps Review
This was a great place and a nice location, close to Pike Place and within walking distance to the convention center. However, we had difficulty with getting an extra key for our group which made if difficult to come and go as we pleased. This place is not good for a group to stay because they only issue two keys. They had a third key, but they could not locate it. Although the location was beautiful with a great view of the Puget Sound, there were a lot of homeless people on the street below that were not afraid to get in your face and a few strip clubs within a block or so.
Great place to stay with friends
The only reasons I didn't give all 5's were that 1) The upright blinds were in poor condition in the master bedroom, and 2) Check-in was a little confusing - I got sent from one desk to another and back again. Other than that, we loved the place! We could walk to everything, the view was fantastic, and for six of us the price was extremely reasonable. I've already recommended it to a friend.
Weekend stay at Harbor Steps
Great location, great amenities, close to everything, fantastic view! Loved having coffee on the deck each morning while watching the ferries!
Harbor Steps 1620
We enjoyed the location in downtown Seattle. The freeway noise below was quite noticeable, but it did not keep me awake at night. I personally prefer a firmer bed...but that was my only "complaint." We loved the space, the view and the location.

The location, the condo, the decor, the assistance from staff were all superb!...but the view was ASTOUNDING! The negatives were and this was a pretty big one...most of the pots and pans were unusable because their bottoms were scorched/burned. Also, one of the lamps had a burned out bulb, and the front desk remedied that situation. The management compnay was great in that they delivered to us a new set of pots and pans the second day of our stay. help

Seattle Condo #1620 in Harbor Steps
This is the best possible location in Seattle and the most beautful ever from this condo, we really enjoyed it !
The location was wonderful and the condo views of the sound were unobstructed. The only drawback was the constant sound of traffic from intrastate #99 that was approx. 8 stories below our condo. The sound was more like white noise than an annoyance. The condo was clean and well maintained and the staff were helpful. I thought the location and amount of space were a good value for the rent.
Perfect location, great view; but road noise at night.
Our stay was wonderful, the location was very convenient, and the unit overlooks the water, which is really nice; but it also overlooks the freeway/viaduct -- which is very noisy, even on the 16th floor. It makes sleeping somewhat difficult for light sleepers (especially in the "main" bedroom).
The condo was great....
The condo was great. However, there needs to be at least one more chair in the living room. Your literature says the condo will sleep 6, but it sure won't sit 6 comfortably. We made it okay with only one hair dryer, but there needs to be a hair dryer in each bath.
Great location!! Our only...
Great location!! Our only complaint would be the noise level from the street/viaduct.
Seattle July 16 2008
Unit has an awesome view. Close to everything. Even at 16 floors up you could hear some street noise, but no big deal. Only downside is air conditioner is not powerful enough and only in the dining/living room, none in the bedrooms. Harbor Steps concierge staff was extremely helpful and very nice. Sea to Sky Rentals were a pleasure to do business with. Would stay there again.
wonderful place to stay in seattle
walking distance to pike market, seattle;s art museum and shops. Close to water also. only need air conditioning in bedrooms, otherwise a perfect place with a view
Had a great time
What a super place---the view was awesome---the location was perfect---- right in the middle of everywhere the staff was very friendly and helpful If anyone ever ask about a place to stay or rent I will definetly suggest Sea to Sky Rentals and Harbor Steps I know if we ever go back to Seattle I know exactly who to call We(the 5 of us ) had a great time and would sure like to return Thank You
Wonderful Seattle Apartment
This condo was wonderful! I have never been happier with a place to stay than this! SUPERB LOCATION - Super Clean, Great Views, Excellent Service from Sea to Sky (Julie) and Concierge - Could NOT be happier. & close to EVERYTHING!
A Post Alaska Wind Down
We took a cruise in Alaska then took the train to Seattle from vancouver. It was a wonderful trip... and would recommend it. Harbor steps was a great place. Wonderful views. However, I was told we would be introduced to our room, but, we had to find our way. Also, when attempting to get a cab to the airport, was told, to use their own service. Saved us quite a few dollars to get a cab (van) on our own. there were 4 of us, with 8 pieces of luggage. we were there when it was hot, and the air conditioning was not the best.... The kitchen accommodations were good.... We purchased seafood at the market, and made it at the apartment. it was nice to just hang out.
Location and view can't be beat
The view from the 16th floor living room of Elliot Bay is enormous and beautiful. Watching the ships and boats can be almost hypnotic. And out the kitchen window, if the clouds cooperate, you get a clear shot at Mt. Rainier. It's an easy walk to the market, the aquarium, ferries, shopping, etc. Washer/dryer in unit means you don't have to bring as much with you--especially great if, like us, you're traveling with kids. Pay extra for parking--it will add years to your life. The only slight negative is that all the traffic below (on land and water) can get kind of noisy and the windows don't do much to block it out. A minor gripe.
Nancy B.'s review of Harbor Steps #1620
Location was perfect. The condo was very comfortable. We hope to be able to stay again.

I stayed there a year ago. So it is weird to be getting this review right now.

The view from our rooms was spectacular. All our expectations were met.
Porter Ranch, CA
We were impressed with the property, the view, and the ammenities. The heaters are a bit noisy as are the windows but overall really enjoyed our stay and will do it again!

CLEAN THE PLACE UP OR UPDATE PICTURES!
The location is great, but the apartment was very dirty. Dirty upholstery, walls, fridge, plates etc. The place looked great in the pictures, so it was a shock when we arrived. Either update your pictures or clean and paint the place.
Nice but noisy!
The facility was nice enough from a cleanliness perspective, although my wife and I had to do some cleaning of the actual apartment when we arrived. Nowhere in the Sea to Sky description of the property, however, was an indication that a major highway ran along the apartment. In that there was not an air conditioning system that was effective in the apartment, open windows were the only choice. As Seattle is a major city, the traffic never stopped, especially truck traffic. As a light sleeper, this was nightmare-ish at best. For this reason, I'm not sure I'd use Sea to Sky again.
Great view - plenty to do
We had a beautiful view of the harbor from the 16th floor. We were within walking distance of many nice restaurants on the piers, a very nice aquarium, and Pike's Place fish market. I would definitely stay there again!
A great Seattle vacation rental
We had a great time in Seattle and one reason was Harbor Steps. We walked out the front door to everything we wanted to see and do. The apartment had a fabulous view, tiny balcony for fresh sea air and everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Confusing parking garage and noise from traffic on the street below were are only disappointments. I would stay there again when visiting Seattle.
