If you want a location that allows eau access to more than just the downtown area of Seattle this is a great place to stay. It's in the heart of U district. Easy access to the express way and a good variety of restaurants. . The rooms were large and the beds very comfortable. There was a variety of pillows... More

Dear Patti, For someone who loves Art and Architecture, peace and quiet and urban exploring, I agree you picked the perfect location; away from downtown noise and near the historic buildings of UW and close to our many museums and sights. Next time you join us, we'll be sure to upgrade you to our larger studio suite for ample seating.... More

We did a Saturday overnight in Seattle and wanted to be close to a restaurant we were going to in Fremont. Chose the Watertown......great choice! Right in the U District and walking distance to breakfast and there is a little market across the street. Underground parking is free which was a real bonus. We splurged on the King View room....top... More

Picked this hotel due to location near my kids, very convenient. Lots of restaurants within walking distance. Free parking although small spaces. Coffee, water and popcorn in room. Oddly there are no chairs in spacious rooms except for desk chair and a bench. Nice bathroom. Convenient cafe in foyer with good breakfast snacks. But the bedding was awesome.

Watertown hotel is a great place, it is nearby University of Washington, and convenient to downtown (also have free shuttles). and the environment is comfortable, the staffs are friendly. because this hotel locates in campus, so its also very quiet. As a result, its a nice place, but a little bit expensive.

For my xmas trip, we wanted to stay in Seattle as a mid point between Portland and Vancouver. Very good location - there's a little bridge allows you to avoid the I-5 bridge section going into downtown Seattle. I didn't run into any traffic while going to Downtown. Neighborhood offers a good walk, either around U of Washington or Peace... More

Dear Wei, Thank you for spending Christmas with us. We hope it was merry! Good tip on the University Bridge, it's nice to have our own route into downtown. Next time we'll be sure to have 2 Pineapple Cruisers waiting for you to cycle around and I'll even try to order up a few sunny days for you. Until then,... More

College tour visit at Univ. of Wa. so, location is why I chose this hotel. The beds are comfy, the rooms are clean. I like that the floors are solid instead of carpet. Seems cleaner.

Great location for U district, UW undergrad and Univ Village shopping. Convenient courtesy shuttle to downtown and surrounding areas. Chic boutique hotel in U district- U district is kind of rundown and old so finding a clean hip hotel is hard. The hotel is also next door to several Seattle Childrens outpatient offices.
