We booked this hotel with the express purpose of being close to University of Washington to see our son off to grad school. This is the perfect location for that, but not if you want to see downtown. Downtown Seattle is not walk able from here, you will have to drive or take a bus or the hotel shuttle and it's at least 25 minutes. The hotel was clean,comfortable and provided a nice free continental breakfast. Our room had a very comfortable queen bed with a pull out sofa, desk, microwave and fridge. The bathroom was clean and divided so that someone could shower and there was an additional sink/mirror combination outside the bathroom. There was a clean, picturesque , moderate size pool outside with a nice sitting area that we enjoyed the first day there.. In addition to the school, there are several small markets and pub like restaurants near the hotel. I enjoyed the stay very much, it had everything we needed for the purpose of getting our son to school. We did rent a car so that we could visit the sights . The hotel has a shuttle service but we didn't utilize that this trip. There is also the Portage Cafe attached to the hotel which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. We didn't eat there this trip.
