The University in is located only a few blocks from the UW campus. Our visit was to take my grandson for a campus tour, pending his application there. The proximity to the UW made it a great choice. Several grocery stores were close by, nice for those evening snacks. It is an easy walk to the campus, taking us only... More

Friendly service, comfortable beds, clean rooms, good value What more can you want for a weekend escape?! 2 night stay in a Deluxe room (microwave, refrigerator, and a bigger bathroom) for a UW football game. 15 minute walk through the campus to the stadium; 10 minute drive (or free shuttle ride) to Seattle center (Space Needle, EMP, Chihuly).

The staff are awesome. The shuttle took us everywhere we needed to get too. You cannot find a friendlier place to stay in Seattle. The rooms were very clean and having a Keurig coffee maker in the room was a big plus.

Stayed for a full week- mostly for work, but also for fun. The location is super close to public transportation into town, is an easy walk to university district food and drink, thrift stores, yoga places, etc. and the free bikes make the whole thing spectacular. You can ride anywhere! Gasworks Park, delicious restaurants along the lake, Freemont, Discovery Park...... More

We've stayed in about 10 hotels on this trip and this definitely ranks as one of the best. There's everything you'd expect from a decent hotel; the beds are comfortable, I love the 60's decor and the rooms are air-conditioned and clean. What really marks it out are all the thoughtful extras which make it a really great place to... More

The rooms are clean, and it is not far from downtown. We enjoyed the simple but sufficient breakfast that filled us up. We were able to find parking in their lot. There is a little street noise in the morning, but I grew up in the city and it did not bother me. There are little details that shows that... More

Some things they have control over and some things they do not. The structure is older, therefore you are NOT staying at a newer fancy place. If you can't do boutique... this place won't work for you. If you want to be near campus and can deal with boutique... great! book it. Downs: you walk down the hall and everyone... More
