Default Need Seattle Hotel Feedback

Here are my choices (I'm reviewing some auctions)...any feedback would be greatly appreciated as we need lodging for 1 night post cruise. We are arriving via Amtrak, so I'm guessing I'll need to grab a cab unless the hotel provides a shuttle..

We'd like to visit the space needle as well as Pikes - thanks!

1. Ramada downtown...noticed there was a train running by it - is that the monorail? is it loud? is there a stop near it?
2. Best Western Executive - feedback I've read is that it is a good clean hotel.
3. Vintage Park...looks fancy and a nice way to end the trip, but only if I can get the hotel for a good deal ($75)

Any other hotels I should look into?

Marriott Springhill Suites excellent location -- high/rise building, restaurant on premises and walking distance to nice smaller mall. Weekend rate sometime low as $100 so priceline should be cheaper. About 3 star I believe.

We stayed at the Hotel Vintage Park 1 night precruise in June. It was a very nice Boutique Hotel. The rooms were small but very clean and well decorated. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. I paid $105 thru Priceline for our Saturday night stay.

we just got best Western Executive for $50 a night in September (weekend) - looks good to me, reasonably close to everything and a downtown shuttle if we get lazy
gsz, the monorail isn't back up and running yet since the fire a few months ago, so the noise from there will be zero
