I spent a night here while in town on business. I stayed at a sister hotel in Downtown Seattle before and I really enjoyed that so I thought I would give this place a shot. I really liked the decor of the lobby area. I was given a corner room with a nice view of the city. The room was... More

Dear Derek, Thank you for choosing Pineapple Hospitality again! Near flawless is an exciting compliment for our team! It sounds like, with a little network tweaking, we can be even better. On the bandwidth side, our complimentary guest internet boasts a dedicated 900 Mb fiber connection. Next time you're in the area, we invite you to drop by and try... More

Clean, nicely appointed room. Perfect individual coffee maker, size of the room, and friendliness of the staff. Allowed to stay and park, even my mom's car, in the garage while we visited the campus. Greeted us by name upon return and offered us a bottle of water. Great.

A few things you need to take into consideration when you want to stay at this hotel... 1. Rooms are clean, no doubt about it. The wooden floors and tiles certainly contribute to that, but... It also means you will hear your upstairs neighbour walk around. And on a Sunday morning at 6.15 its no fun to hear them stomping... More

Dear nlacaja, Thank you for choosing our hotel for your recent visit to Seattle! You're absolutely right that the floors allow us to have a higher standard of cleanliness and we certainly understand the noise. Often the offending party does not realize they are offending. We encourage our guests to communicate with us so that we can help make everyone's... More

Woohoo! What a great room - business suite was roomy and comfortable. I loved the location - restaurants and activity buzzing near UW yet the hotel and its location was quiet and cozy. If you stay elsewhere, you're missing a great stay - possibly for the same amount of money. Ask for a winter rate to save 20%.

Dear Leftie9, Woohoo! Thank you for the great review and great tip on the winter rate! We're excited that you enjoyed your time with us in one of our Studio Suites. We call that specific type of room a boardroom suite, for those that wish to have the same room. We hope that life will bring you back this way... More

Watertown is a good place to stay while visiting UW. The free parking for hotel guests is secure and easy. The coffee shop in the hotel is convenient, and there is Keurig coffee in the rooms. The staff was available and very friendly. Super easy place to stay.

Dear BearFan, We appreciate that you and your family chose the Watertown for your recent trip. Visitors to Seattle have come to expect great coffee and overpriced parking. We're happy to buck the trend for the latter of the two. Thank you for letting us know that you received 5 star service, we would love to be your 5 star... More

Stayed in Watertown during business and found it to be almost perfect in every way. Great location, price, and service. Free parking -- really,,,,,,,,,,,,bonus. Walking distance to many University business and just off 1-5. Very clean and quiet rooms considering the hustle and bustle of Seattle all around. Would definitely stay there again.

What a nice hotel! Lobby was small, but clean. The staff were generally very polite and helpful. Our room was without a view, but the furniture and layout were nice. Contemporary yet homey and comfortable. The only drawback: no room service! They do not have a resturant in this hotel. When we went downstairs to the cafe, we didnt get... More

This property is well-positioned near the UW campus and the National Archives. It is modern, clean and has a great staff. There is a parking garage available for those that drive. The only negative is traveling on Interstate 5. Traffic is heavy it seems nearly all the time and not pleasant to drive in, especially at night in the rain.... More

Dear TMK-AK, What a wonderful thing indeed it would be to fix our traffic problem. Luckily there is no I-5 travel needed to get to the University or National Archives. Maybe next time you travel this way, we can help work out a combination of private cars and our Pineapple Express to help you move about the city. Either way,... More

I stayed at the Watertown to be closer to my destination. From the time I called to inquire, reserve and confirm my reservation I have been overwhelmed with my experience. The staff first hand has the best attitude and friendly service. Without being "too much" they were perfect. Smiles, eagerness to assist and offered some pretty awesome options for sightseeing....
