Ever arrive exhausted from a drive after an already eventful day, but that has you at your destination in the wee hours of the morning ahead of schedule because anticipated much vaunted border delays didn't transpire. Then you wondered whether to curl up asleep in your car? Before taking up parking space in the University Inn where I had a reservation for Monday night, I was prompted to check with the night staff and let them know my plan because I had an early appointment at U of W Med Ctr close by and wouldn't be able to check-in until much later in the afternoon. I was greeted brightly by Joel and before I knew it I was whisked off to my room that was already available following Sunday checkouts and with the welcoming news that the gym was available at their sister Waterford Hotel next door through agreement. Breakfast was absolutely inviting and all the staff mirrored the initial welcome by Joel in their eagerness to assist everyone. The hotel is bright and clean with all the amenities and a great well-lit running trail through the university district and Lake Washington. Free shuttle service runs around the area and stops across the street every 15 minutes and the bus service to downtown is less than 20 minutes with Pike Street Market; Pioneer Square, and other waterfront attractions all laid out in a walking distance. Perfect accommodation by Joel; returning soon!
