The Watertown is a seriously welcoming hotel. I traveled with a large group of students and was the one handling reservations, shuttles, etc., and all of the Watertown staff were incredibly helpful and friendly throughout our stay. Our arriving flight had us in town much too early for check-in, and we were allowed to check in early. The staff had great suggestions for places to visit. The rooms were very clean, homey, and practical. The hotel itself is a skip away from UW campus, which was convenient for our purposes - yet it was close enough to downtown to easily get to Pike Place, the Space Needle, and every other place we wanted to visit, too! The complimentary shuttle, bikes, coffee, and pineapple cupcakes definitely didn't hurt, either. I just loved this hotel.
