We were delighted when we opened the door to our room. The room was spotless and featured lovely, simple decor. The fact that there was no wall to wall carpeting made it especially clean and fresh. It felt more like staying at a friend's up-scale urban flat than a hotel. There were many lovely touches - robes, slippers and an... More

My husband and I stayed here on a recent trip to Seattle and were thoroughly impressed with this hotel. The location is great (it is within walking distance of good restaurants and things to do), and the cost of your stay includes free Wi-Fi and secure parking in the property's garage: both things I always look for when booking a...

Drove up late on a Friday evening with no reservation, but got a great suite for a great price. Very comfortable king size bed, chair and couch, writing desk, microwave. Extremely well equipped, spacious room with lots of windows. Contemporary vibe, very clean and very comfortable. Service at the reception desk was always very cheerful and helpful.

If you want to stay near UW this is the place to stay. A few blocks from the edge of campus, the Watertown is super convenient if you're visiting your little Huskie or just attending a game. The hotel staff was beyond friendly and the rooms were big and clean. Quiet, clean, and secure...not a bad way to go. Not... More

I stayed here for two nights with my son and husband while visiting UW. The hotel is in a great location close to the U. The room was large and kind of basic but very clean. It was actually one of the cleanest hotel rooms and bathrooms I've ever stayed in. The online photos are very accurate. The window thermostat... More

This is our go to hotel when visiting Seattle. It is small, modern and clean, and just a block or two from the U. It has under ground free parking, the location is easy to get to, and shops and restaurants with in an easy distance. The price is more affordable than other Seattle hotels.

Stayed here 3 nights while in town on business. I've stayed in other nearby boutique hotels, and this one is my new favorite. Rooms are fairly spacious, clean, comfortable and quiet. They have these funky comforters on the beds that would be great on a cold night. My only complaint about the room is that the A/C did nothing to... More

When traveling to Seattle, my go to place is the Watertown Hotel. Friendly and helpful staff, modern, clean, and comfortable, and I have very much appreciated the free gated under-the-hotel parking with easy elevator access to the lobby and rooms. The free parking alone in Seattle, can save $20+/day, making the room cost even more reasonable. Location is excellent in... More

My lack of recommednation is purely due to the substandard internet service I stayed in an east-facing room on the 5th floor, and the internet connectivity was abysmal. Attempts to have teleconferences by skype, or even download emails of about 1-2 MB were constantly interrupted and unsuccessful. I ended up using the almost-too-distant eduroam net to do routine data work.... More
