This was our first visit to Seattle and the primary purpose was a college visit. We did manage to do some sightseeing and the Watertown was surprisingly convenient. We stayed at the Watertown after reading some of the comments posted here and we are glad we did. I hope I have her name correct, but Marina at the front desk... More

If you are in Seattle for medical reasons at the U of W, to visit students, visit friends in the U area, Wallingford, or Fremont...there is no better place to stay. Bar none. Clean. Kept up. Safe. Friendly. Secure parking. Trader Joes a block north...or Safeway, for that matter. Drug stores, restraints, vitamin stores....whatever you need or want is within... More

Dear GUGRAD, Thank you for the wonderful recommendation. We know traveling for medical reasons isn't the easiest so we try to help with our Medical rates and complimentary shuttle service to UW Medical Center, Childrens and SCCA. When the Watertown is unavailable however, the University Inn just a block south also fits the description of Clean. Kept up. Safe. and... More

This is a very hip hotel but not in an off-putting, exclusive, I'm-cooler-than-you kind of way. The room layout was open, airy, and spacious. The beds were comfortable and the windows actually open! It's nice to be able to get fresh air instead of canned a/c.

Dear Acmeplant, Thank you for choosing us. It means a great deal that a world traveler from the city of New York is calling us hip... and we'll take it! Your commentary about our rooms is appreciated. It would be a travesty to travel all the way here and not get as much of our foliage scented, sea touched, fresh... More

My daughter and I stayed at the Watertown Hotel by the UW campus this week as she had interviews in the hotel conference rooms. The hotel “got it right” in many small ways that made our stay excellent. Our room with two comfortable queen beds was modern, clean, and quiet, the beds each had two firm and two soft pillows,...

This place gets great reviews, I don't know why, yes it's trendy and hipster, it "looks" great. Service is ok, not great, but ok. The beds are hard, like sleeping on plywood, the only chair in the room we had was hard. The desk while handy to have, was poorly installed so that anything you placed on it rolled to... More

Dear sbittant, Thank you for choosing us for your recent Seattle visit. I want to thank you for trying to point us in the right direction to help us gain a little more "Smoosh". A good hotel should be comfortable with easy to use amenities and provide great service. Since all three of these goals can be a moving target,... More
