Spent three nights at the Watertown while visiting my daughter, a UW freshman, and could not have been more favorably impressed. As busy as this hotel was, they somehow kept delivering little extras that made me feel like a special guest.
I used the towncar service to run a couple of errands downtown, so I didn't really need the rental car that I had; it sat in the garage (free parking!). Everything in the UW area is a short walk from the Watertown, and if you opt to take public transportation the bus to downtown stops a half block from the front of the hotel. It is about a 15 min. ride.
The desk staff was courteous and helpful. I requested one of the special "carts" (movies) that is a signature of this hotel and it arrived right on time. I
The room was large and well laid out. I had a quiet corner room that offered views of the Space Needle and also a bit of a water view. The shower had plenty of pressure and the bed was very comfortable. And the room was absolutely spotless. I could not ask for more.
I also availed myself of the very generous complimentary breakfast each morning, and there is a wine tasting in the afternoons (I didn't partake). I used the loaner bicycles to get around the campus and U District, and tried out a few bike trails while my daughter was in class.
When you add in all the extras that come with the basic room charge, this hotel is an excellent bargain. And it is a GREAT hotel experience.
