X-posted to Yelp. Please, please, please save your time, money, and heartache and DON'T LIVE HERE! Let me admit that I thought I knew what I was getting into when I signed my lease at the Biltmore. I read the Yelp… Full Review ▶

This is the absolute, hands down, worst place I have ever lived. Besides the beautiful facade in the summer, the building itself is falling apart. The property management company (Metropolitan Management for those who are interested) are slum lords in the… Full Review ▶

Building looks cool on the outside, the staff is really nice and do seem to care, the people who live in the building themselves are very cool, very pet-friendly, but BEWARE: the Biltmore is a nightmare. Dog poop in the hallways,… Full Review ▶

The management company for this place are known extortionists. I've been told as much by people who work for them. Please do yourself a favor and live somewhere else. We cleaned up everything and turned in the keys on the day… Full Review ▶

This is the worst place I have ever called home!! Disgusting! No heat this winter and the owners are slum lords. Over priced and dirty! No parking, laundry machines steal your money, and the building is full of drug users. I… Full Review ▶

Hands down, this is the WORST PLACE I have ever lived! Notice the only good reviews have been recently? The manager, no doubt encouraged by his boss, has offered people discounts for positive reviews. I have spoken to people who have… Full Review ▶

I've lived at the Biltmore for six years. It was built in the early 20's and they've made sure to keep all of the cute little features from that time intact. Each apartment is unique and you can always find something… Full Review ▶

I've lived in the Biltmore for about 4 years. Generally speaking, I have been very happy with my apartment and with the building in general. Starting with the positives, the building itself is very beautiful, and it's in an exceptionally convenient… Full Review ▶

I've lived at the Biltmore for two years. I really like my apartment. Management has been friendly. The occasional water shut-offs for repairs have been the only annoyance, but it's been a while since that's happened, and I understand. Full Review ▶

I really enjoy my time at the Biltmore, not only is it in an excellent location on Capitol hill within walking distance of almost anything you could need. The building is old but its in pretty good shape and is very… Full Review ▶

This all too petty apartment manager not only stabbed me in the back but did it with a smile on his face. When I first arrived to the Apartment building to move in (after a long drive from California) I was… Full Review ▶

During my stay at the Biltmore we had 1 guy that shot a gun out of his bedroom window into the courtyard in the middle of the night and multiple false fire alarms after midnight. There are drug deals going on… Full Review ▶

Jesus lord the prices are sky high. I use to stay there in the 80's. I lived in the basement, next to the laundry. My studio was only 175.00 a month, lol. Lots of room I turned it into a one… Full Review ▶

As soon as your 6-month lease is up expect a major increase- my rent has gone up nearly $300 in 2 years. And don't bother trying to get a year-lease up front, they won't give you one. They seem to be… Full Review ▶

I think that after seeing the six story turreted brick building covered in ivy most people would agree that the Biltmore is one of the most beautiful buildings in Capital Hill -- I certainly think so. But after living there for… Full Review ▶

I chose the Biltmore after looking at several apartments in the area. It was on the high-end of the spectrum for what I wanted to pay for a studio, but it was the largest in terms of useable square feet. It's… Full Review ▶

I moved out of one of their buildings in Tacoma (the Beverly) after a year of two high-percentage rent increases, an illegal "less than 48 hr" inspection (inspecting for what, I'm not sure ... probably for any way possible to squeeze… Full Review ▶

The exterior of the building is beautiful: brick with ivy, the location is great, and I like my unit. Hardwood floors, moldings and a lot of character. I asked for a one-year lease when I moved in, but I was only… Full Review ▶

I never had a problem with Lea. I noticed she seemed a bit neurotic, but she was never rude to me once. I had two separate covert extended stay visitors for two months each without approval while living here, and she… Full Review ▶

I loved living in the Biltmore. My apartment was clean, quick to fix things, pretty quite, and great location. However Lea made it almost impossible to live there. She was incredibly hot and cold and she stuck her nose where it… Full Review ▶

The time I spent living in the Biltmore was great. The building manager, Lea, is kind and a huge advocate for the residents. However, because of my experience after moving out, I would not suggest people live here. RP Management is… Full Review ▶

What a lot of the other reviewers are saying about the Manager is generally true. Although she wasn't the worst thing in the world to deal with, she would be nice and say hi, then the next minute glare at you… Full Review ▶

I know it looks tempting, but it will quickly become apparent these landlords are here to suck every last dollar they can from you while doing everything possible to avoid keeping their end of "the contract" which Lea loves to refer… Full Review ▶

The building is a nice historic property with hardwood floors. I rarely have any issues with neighbors and the property manager is very easy to get along with unless your a nuisance. However RP Management is a nightmare owner. They will… Full Review ▶

The manager was quick to respond to the few requests I had and created a great place to live. They have really preserved the charm in this old building. I definitely recommend it! Full Review ▶

Despite some of the problems of the Biltmore voiced by other reviews here (some very true, some total nonsense) I had no problems there. We loved our apartment, and wouldn't have moved out if not for the need to move cross… Full Review ▶

When we first looked at the building, I was overwhelmed at how creepy and Shining-like it was. That's part of the reason I liked the place, until you are alone in the building and expecting the twins to be around the… Full Review ▶

I moved into the Biltmore almost 6 months ago, and so far my experience there has been wonderful. I have never had any troubles with management, even after I received a couple complaints by neighbors/manager for playing loud music. (I must… Full Review ▶

Ah...The Biltmore. A 1924 Hotel turned into a 125 apartment complex. For a viewing, Lea is usually available in the morning and afternoon only. She would be more than happy to smile and graciously show many available units.

The old problems that have plagued the Biltmore (i.e. inconsistent water temperatures, dirty apartments) have been solved. I personally have not had a single problem with the water -- nice consistently hot showers every time. Also, when I moved into my… Full Review ▶

The Biltmore is under new management, the new manager, Lea, is the most organized and responsive apartments manager I´ve ever seen. I don´t know how she does it. She has fixed very minor problems within one day. Currently the apartments are… Full Review ▶

I moved in just before the building management was changed, and the Biltmore Tenants union was formed.

Not worth the hassle.

This place has a history of trouble with management. Check out what George Howland wrote in SeattleWeekly, "Living at the Biltmore is practically a "rite of passage" for young, hip Seattleites, says Hughes. The Biltmore is a classic brick courtyard building… Full Review ▶

I believe $700 is too much for 500 square feet of living space and that $100 is way too much for a barely-secured parking space two blocks away. The manager is noncommital, at best. I asked him to repair a faucet… Full Review ▶
