With cute little pineapple cup cakes severed every afternoon. The room was clean and recently updated. There are cute robes and slippers to wear and large channel selection. The blankets where a little...

We came down for a couple day so my daughter could visit University of Washington. The staff was very friendly and the service was great. They were flexible as we needed a late checkout. Breakfast was fine with a good selection. I would stay here again.

I've traveled around the world and stayed in 5-star hotels and every star level under that. Some real gems and some that can be called horrific. This hotel is unique. There are five things that I look for and this hotel has it ALL. That's written in all caps because it is rare, very rare even for the 5-star properties....

After living in Seattle for over a decade, my husband and I were looking forward to staying at the University Inn for a visit. I passed it almost daily and always thought it'd be a cute place to stay. When taking a shower the water was lukewarm, until the room next door turned on his/her shower. Then the shower alternated...

University of Washington is a short walk away, very convenient. The hotel was cute and clean. We were disappointed that the pool and whirlpool were out of commission. The little breakfast place two doors down, Portage Bay, has the best breakfast I've had in a long time.
