Reviewed yesterday NEW

Even though the style is retro, the amenities are modern. The continental breakfast had a wide selection of foods and they even had complimentary toiletries if you forgot something (I actually forgot a toothbrush). I didn't use the shuttle because the schedule didn't work with mine but it's nice that it was available. Staff was friendly.

I love this place. We stay here every Husky game so we don't have to drive back to Puyallup. The service is impeccable. They always give us great eating and drinking recommendations. Very clean and comfy beds. I will continue to keep coming back.

My husband was having surgery at a nearby hospital. Because he was not discharged as early as planned, twice I had to extend my stay. Not only did the staff allow me to keep the same hotel room I was in, but the price was unchanged. Also the convenience of having the hospital shuttle service across the street and the...

We had used the UI as a home base in August 2015 while planning a move from CA to WA. Loved the breakfast, and it's always nice to have coffee available downstairs at all hours. The deluxe king room in the southwest wing is roomier than the other hotel section. Appreciated the microwave and fridge in room for storing prescription...

The room was Clean, amenities were great and staff were super friendly. Breakfast was decent. The free shuttle to 8 different locations was very useful, though have to book in advance as the seats get taken up fast.

We were doing a campus visit at UW and stayed several nights. I was concerned from the reviews that the construction would keep us up, but there was no nighttime work while we were there. We were in a corner room that was quite large. It was an exceptionally clean and well appointed, modern room. The location near the university...
