“Great Hotel all around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

We stayed here for two nights while visiting my daughter who attends University of Washington. The location was perfect and within walking distance to everything we needed . The room was updated, clean and well stocked with toiletries, coffee and water. Parking was free and so was the wifi. The staff was wonderful, helpful and friendly. This is the fourth hotel in the area that we have tried and this will be my first choice from now on.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

Stayed here for about the 3rd or 4th time in 5 years recently with our two standard poodles. Hard to not rate it 5 stars but it doesn't try to be a five star luxury place and that is one of its beauties. Incredible location for UW or UW Medical Center business and appointments. Right across the street from two of the UW Medicine biggest buildings. Very comfortable and quiet rooms, super comfy beds with sheets that must be a million count as they are almost silk. Everything there for quick comfort in the room. More than adequate cafe on the lobby floor does it all from 600-400 with lots of choices. Safe and secure underground gated parking included. And at a rate I consider a definite value. Topped off by very friendly and helpful staff, all of them. Wonderful to see a place continue to be good time after time.

This trendy, boutique hotel 4 blocks from UW, features bamboo floors throughout, neon art in the lobby and friendly accommodating staff. Rooms are spacious and include a desk, sitting area, separate dressing area, Kuerig maker, mini fridge and microwave (complete with popcorn, tea and coffee cartridges). One thing to note is; popcorn, water, coffee and tea will not be refilled during your stay. Shampoo/conditioner is dispense from a wall-mounted unit in the shower. The Pineapple Cafe in the lobby, is a good place to grab a snack on your way out the door. There is also a neighborhood market immediately across the street. The hotel shuttle van is a convenient service, just stop by the front desk to make reservations. The shuttle goes to UW and downtown.

A minuscule gym is tucked in a far corner of the main level of the hotel. There is also a small business center off the main lobby, equipped with 2PCs and a printer. The hotel has free wireless throughout the building. Something to note; access to ALL guest floors, requires a room key be scanned in the card reader in the elevator.

If you are traveling to and from the airport at odd hours, ask the front desk to schedule a town car pick-up for you-- it will only be about $10 more than a taxi. The car service is incredibly reliable, and you don't have to worry about getting a cab.

I will definitely stay here again, if I need to be near UW.

Had a great stay at the Watertown. Walked to UW campus each day, stopping by some decent coffee shops, restaurants, bars and brewery. Location was great. The hotel itself was modern, clean and the staff very friendly, if a bit laid back. They also offer free mini pineapple cupcakes. There is a small store across the street that has a great selection of craft beer and a really awesome deli with excellent sandwiches and a wide variety.

Very good value. Room was big, clean and modern. The hotel is just a few blocks from the University of Washington and in the U District. It is close to shopping and inexpensive, but tasty ethnic foods.

We enjoyed our stay and the Watertown Hotel in Seattle. The room was massive if a little sparsely decorated. The hotel was clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. The underground parking is really useful and best of all was the shuttlebus downtown which we were able to arrange to pick us up in the evening. Would certainly recommend this hotel

I recently stayed at the Watertown Hotel in Seattle. This facility was impeccibly maintained. It was clean, comfortable and a very good value. The hotel staff was wonderful. They were knowledgable about the surrounding area, very accommodating and eager to offer assistance. I am planning another visit to Seattle and will definitely stay there again.
