While there is nothing inherently wrong with the hotel, it is too expensive for what you get. There are plenty of other good options with better value in the area to justify staying here again. Also, the pictures on the website are very misleading, which suggest that there is a rooftop restaurant (there isn't).

Love the overall design. Next time, I'll have people over for a glass of wine to enjoy the ambiance. Great Room and bathroom. Fantastic eggs! I didn't get upstairs to see the view which was one of the reasons I stayed there - no time.

Maybe my expectations were too high, particularly for the bathroom... but I found Hotel Deca not as fancy as the website portrayed it... It certainly wasn't gross or bad by any means. The bed was VERY comfortable. Wonderful views from windows particularly if your room is up high. I was on the 15th floor. The conference rooms were very decent... More

First the good: Room was nice, nothing special, but also nothing outstanding. After the first night, my key didn't work in the elevator so I went to the desk. I was told, nastily, I must have put it near something to deactivate it. I told the young girl behind the desk that the three other people I was traveling with... More

Our room at Hotel Deca was very nice, with a comfortable, nicely updated old room with a fabulous view of Mount Ranier. Situated in the university district, it is convenient and a Tully's coffee shop is just off the lobby. But what made this place special to us was the exemplary service. When we calked housekeeping, we were attended promptly... More

So Seattle downtown hotels were full and I booked here since it was close enough to my clients and seemed nice. The location is at UW and near downtown. The hotel is fine (though my room had weird repairs and patches) in terms of appearance and had passable service. However, the very loud college students next door and the thin... More

Booked a City View Deluxe room for our one night stay in Seattle, not cheap, expecting a decent sized room with a view over Seattle. Got to our room, after fighting the lift mechanism with the door key and finally winning, to find a very disappointing small room with the 4ft.6 in bed having to be pushed against one wall... More

Hello Skiers356, Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I am very sorry your experience did not meet the expectations you had. Clearly this is not the type of impression we want our guests to walk away with. While there are some limitations due to the location we are in and the configuration of the hotel I... More

We stayed at Hotel Deca for 3 nights. Overall, we had a very positive experience. The staff were all very helpful. The shuttle service was great to have and it wasn't busy at all when we went to book it. Considering hotel prices in Seattle, this was quite reasonable. It was very easy to find off of the I-5 and...

We spent two nights at Hotel Deca on June 30 to July 2. The property is a renovated 1930s building. The décor fits the name, very retro modern. The room was small, but adequate. They charge for self parking in the public parking lot adjacent to the hotel. They also charge extra for bring a microwave, small refrigerator or rollaway... More

I had an interview at the University of Washington and Hotel Deca was very convenient! They have a shuttle that can take you to the university (if it is available), downtown, pikes place etc. Jimmy drove me to the university and picked me up and he was extremely friendly and gave me a great dinner recommendation!
