Fodor's Review

Daily boat tours, waterside views, and complimentary kayak usage make this Kirkland hotel on the shores of Lake Washington a great bet. You'll pay more for the better views and rooms with balconies, but it's probably worth it. Great views can also be had from the upscale restaurant, which serves tasty Pacific Rim fare like Quinault King Salmon topped with crème fraîche and sake-cured salmon caviar. The Beach Cafe is equally good, and more casual.

Woodmark Hotel Review

We stayed at the Woodmark for Memorial Day weekend and had a marvelous time. The hotel is located waterside right on the east shore of Lake Washington with incredible water views and glimpses of the Seattle skyline and Olympic Mountains. We were greeted by a valet and the Woodmafrk's mascot, a Labradoodle pooch fittingly named "Woody". We were unloaded, checked in and ensconced in our lakeview room in less than 10 minutes with complimentary glasses

of Champagne courtesy of the Woodmark. The rooms were nice enough although certainly not luxurious they were roomy with a separate walk in area with a compact fridge, coffee maker and honour bar/snacks. The in room coffee is very nice but there is a Starbucks a 2 minute stroll away. Our view was great but be aware that there is no Ipod player or radio in the rooms so if you want some smooth jazz ambient music bring your own. Also, the beds are nowhere close to the exquisite beds found in comparably priced hotels. The restaurants (both the top drawer Bin on the Lake and the informal Beach Cafe and Living Room Lounge)all serve excellent fare with good service. The lobster mac and cheese at the Bin on the Lake was divine and the wine list with well designed flights was impressive. There is a nice (albeit rather short) promenade along the river and the 2 hr cruise on a restored 1956 Chriscraft is a terrific adventure. Finally, this is a totally pet welcome hotel with no pet surcharge. All in all a thoroughly en joyable weekend getaway destination.

Mixed Experience

We've stayed at the Woodmark twice. The first time, we loved it. The room was nicely appointed and comfortable. We arrived late at night, very hungry, and the "raid the pantry" was a very welcome surprise. The only complaint was the bathroom which was old and small. Loved the lakeside location (although it feels like you are in the middle of an office complex - which you are). There's a Starbucks across the street. The second time, we were

traveling w/ a baby and booked a suite. The room was small and the doors to the bedroom were flimsy did not block out any noise. Our biggest complaint was the mattress which was in terrible shape and very uncomfortable. We complained, hoping they would bring a new mattress. However, their response was to bring up a thin foam pad to put on the mattress. Same small/old bath.

great location -- service and decor leave something to be desired

we stayed here over Valentine's weekend 2004. got a pretty good price on a water view room. the room was blah. just kind of dingy and obviously targeted to a biz traveler (we ordered breakfast in the room one morning, but couldn't even eat w/each other because the setup didn't allow for that). Had dinner at Water's which was overpriced and not that great. I had made reservations several weeks in advance and was promised a nice table. when we got there,

we got shoved in the back along the wall w/2 other couples basically AT our table. not exactly romantic. I wrote a letter which has yet to be acknowledged. Great setting, but overall the place is dingy and the service is so-so. We stayed at Willows Lodge the year before and had a wonderful time. Would highly recommend that hotel!
