“Lovely staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We booked this room for two on Hotwire, got a great rate, and checked in for a two night stay. Our 7th floor corner room was attractive, but really much too small for two adults. After one night figuring out how two adults could get in and out of the bed, which was pushed up against the wall, we asked for a room change. The hotel honored our rate and gave us a terrific room about three times larger a couple doors down. The desk was gracious and generous. Thanks Hotel Decca--we'll be back!

Room Tip: The corner room we had (7th floor) was really a single--much to small for two adults.

Dear Ringo V,

Thank you for your review. I am so glad our front desk team was able to make your visit comfortable. It is always nice when we have other rooms available just in case the first room does not meet guest’s expectation. I know our team will be thrilled to find out they helped make your visit so enjoyable.

We look forward to your next trip to Seattle and Hotel Deca

Sincerely,

I have stayed at the Hotel Deca on several occasions and have not been disappointed. They are refurbishing so we always get stylish rooms. The lobby is beautiful. The staff is very friendly. The location is great. I love it!

Room Tip: Beautiful views of space needle and downtown.

This was our first stay at Deca, I was pleasantly surprised !! I must say that it was one of the quietest rooms that I have had in a hotel for a long time. The beds were comfortable, the room was very pleasantly furnished, and extremely clean. The staff was absolutely wonderful from the time we checked in, until we checked out, greeting us with warm smiles each & every time we came & went. The location was very convenient, as was the shuttle service, which we utilized to and from the UW Medical Center. We received excellant customer service at a very trying time for our family. Thank you and we will stay again!!!

We have stayed at the Deca for several years over the Christmas holidays as it is near our family. We appreciate the convenience to freeways, the friendly service and the pleasant rooms. Yes, the hotel is old but it has been updated and for the price we think it is great.

Room Tip: We prefer the rooms on the Southeast corner as the view toward Lake Washington and the Cascade Range...

The web site showed a hip renovated hotel, instead it was a tired hotel whose beauty was only skin deep. Everything seemed shabby and cheap. Maybe it's cool for the UW crowd with its convenient location but I will not be staying there again. The Watertown Hotel down the street is much nicer.

Dear Jason R,

I am so sorry that we did not meet the expectations you had hoped for. I assure you we never like to receive reviews like yours and will do what is necessary to correct any issues that added to your perception of the hotel.

I wanted to let you know that we are in the midst of an extensive room renovation which I believe may address many of your concerns. If you do see yourself coming back to Seattle please feel free to reach out to me. I would truly enjoy overseeing your reservation to ensure your next experience is spectacular.

Sincerely,

We stayed here for one night and will definitely be back when we are in Seattle, great location .

Everything about this hotel is great, comfortable beds, nice rooms, quiet , doesn't get much better then that. Lots of restaurants close by and the neighbourhood is great.

Excellent customer service.

Room Tip: I don't think there is a bad room, as the rooms were really quiet.

We come to Seattle every year for a Spring Break tradition. We have stayed near the market at the pricier hotels, however were pleasantly surprised when we tried Hotel Deca to save a little $. The beds are extremely comfortable, the staff is very friendly and it is conveniently located. There is a Safeway just down the street to bring back treats for our kids and the restaurant downstairs had wonderful breakfast for our family. Hotel is very attentive to noise issues. We will return here for all of our future stays.
