Kind of like a resort - bathrobes and lots of complimentary toiletries. The room is a step up above other hotels with plush bedding, plenty of storage, bathrobes and a keurig. The beds were comfy and the hotel is very modern looking. I loved the clean design and look of the room and hotel. The pineapple cafe had a delicious... More

I stayed at the Watertown last week and very much enjoyed my stay. The king size bed and comforters were extremely comfortable for my bad back (7 spine surgeries). The room was super clean and arranged in a way that seemed very homey. I highly recommend this hotel if you are staying in Seattle's University District, it is close to... More

The Watertown is a few blocks from the UW campus in a very vibrant, "college-like" commercial/residential neighborhood. There are many markets, small independent restaurants, movie theatres, and a recommended and very popular spot for breakfast and lunch, the Portage Bay Cafe. Our room was of a good size, with room for a couch and chair and desk/chair. There was ample... More

Few hotels take as much care in design and upkeep as the Watertown does. For starters, it’s one of the only hotels anywhere with hardwood floors, meaning that you don’t have asthma attacks from years of accumulated dust and muck in the wall to wall carpeting found in rooms almost everywhere else. It’s simply super clean. The beds are firm;... More

My husband and I have made 4 trips to Seattle since November for Dr. appts. at UW. We live about 250 miles away, and we have chosen to stay at Watertown the last 3 visits.

I am from Seattle and stayed here for a night while our hardwood floors were getting refinished. The hotel is located in the University District near the University of Washington. The hotel staff was very friendly. The parking was free for one car with the room and the parking lot was underground with a locked gate. The room was spacious... More

Dear Chris, We're always happy to accommodate a local. Thank you for thinking of us when your project commenced. I haven't heard much from our guests on our water pressure so thank you for that unique compliment! You were probably one of the very first people to sleep in our new beds. I'm glad that you enjoyed it. I hope... More

I cannot stop singing the Watertown's praises! My sister and I stayed for 3 nights because she has applied to the University of Washington and we wanted to get a feel for the campus and surrounding areas.

There are many hotels out there, but occasionally you find some that bring something more than just a room and a bed with decent service, and the Waterfront turned out to be one of these. Very friendly and helpful staff, a great hotel with a different and cheerful decoration, and free extras that make the stay more pleasant including complimentary... More

My wife and I recently visited Seattle because my daughter was transferred to the University of Washington Medical Center. So we needed a place to stay near the medical facility and the Watertown fit our need perfectly. It would not be my choice if I were visiting Seattle as the traffic is a hassle.
