I spend four days at the Watertown in Seattle for a conference. The hotel was clean and modern and very comfortable. The staff is fantastic and they provide an excellent shuttle service to downtown Seattle.

The Watertown Hotel was really lovely with a nice modern lobby and friendly, helpful staff. We had a very large room with two queen beds and lots of amenities (a vanity with lots of counter space, 2-way wardrobe, microwave, coffee maker and a small fridge). The hotel is in the middle of the university district and surrounded by good cheap... More

Having stayed at the University Inn many times which was booked we decided to try the Watertown Hotel next door another pineapple property. Booking on line always guarantees you get the room by...the elevator, stairs, ice machine or the noisy bar below. So when it was by the elevator we were not surprised.In fact we knew it would got go... More

Dear Sharon, First I would really like to thank you for your Pineapple patronage. It means a lot that you would extend your choice of hotels based on our brand and I certainly invite you to try our hotels in downtown as well. It sounds like your experience was very disappointing. I don't expect that there is anything I can... More

My mom and I recently had a "girls weekend" in Seattle and stayed at the Watertown. We had a great time - we only got to stay one night, but the accommodations were excellent! The Watertown is located in a bustling and electic neighborhood near UW - so the overall vibe is exuberant. The complimentary garage parking and complimentary shuttle... More

We stayed here our final night of a trip, fearing that my son's event at the Key Arena would run too late for him to make the last bus back to the park and ride in Bellevue. The hotel is small and quiet, very close to UW. We arrived after the cafe inside closed, but were able to get a... More

We only stayed one night, but really enjoyed it. We were taking a tour of UW and then off on a cruise to Alaska the next day. The location to the university is great. We also walked around the corner and a short way to the oldest espresso joint in Seattle, Cafe Allegro. Cute little coffee house hidden in an... More

The daily cupcakes and coffee are just a piece of the hospitality, then there's the complimentary shuttle to downtown and the University district which saves on travel costs. The room was a king suite with complimentary coffee and popcorn and a bar fridge and microwave. The room was spacious with a small living room with a sofa and coffee table.... More

Spent a birthday weekend in Seattle. The hotel was fantastic. The room was clean, quiet and we really enjoyed our stay. The parking is free and in a covered garage. The staff was very helpful and the cupcakes were delicious! I would recommend this hotel to anyone. It is a great deal!
