Forget the frenetic pace and fuss of staying in the city...choose Talaris Conference Center and enjoy an oasis of green and quiet - bubbling fountain and delicious complimentary breakfast. Parking is FREE! Yes, we were a bit away from downtown Seattle but we were near several delightful neighborhoods - Wallingford and Ballard and a DO NOT MISS gelateria the Fainting... More

This is an unusual property, with rooms in a variety of buildings scattered around the property, which features ponds, waterfalls, lawns and beautiful trees. Getting around in the winter rain would probably not be fun. Our room was not large, and a little dated, but everything worked EXCEPT FOR THE HEATING/COOLING SYSTEM, which is centrally controlled. It either blew icy... More

The Talaris is located on very beautiful grounds, however, the rooms are a bit older. But well kept. They are always doing improvements. But No Central heat or air, It's controlled from another location... More

One of the biggest compliments we can receive, is for a guest to return to our property. Thank you for mentioning so many nuances that you like. Yes, we agree the grounds are beautiful and our breakfast is remarkable in that we aren't dumping muffins in a basket and calling it a continental. Our Chef Peter puts more of an... More

In a park setting, comfortable quiet rooms with all the essentials. Just near the University but away from the bustle of the streets. Friendly staff and tasty generous buffet breakfast. I noticed that bikes were available, good to know for the next visit!

Would recommend this facility to anyone. We found out about due to friends who came to visit from Arkansas, even though we have been natives of WA state all our lives. So happy we found this gem. Enjoyed the breakfast and the grounds are beautiful.

The property was beautiful and a nice reprieve from the nearby bustle of the city. The surrounding neighborhood is beautiful and makes fior a great place to run and/or bike. The room amenities seemed neglected (the bathtub wasn't working) . The room was clean, spacious and the staff were consistently friendly and helpful. Despite the tub, I'd recommend it.

For the price, this hotel can't be beat and it is in a very lovely neighborhood. Very convenient to Seattle Children's and University Village. If you don't want to stay downtown, this quiet hotel is perfect.

The hotel staff are super friendly but overall my stay was poor. The rooms are very outdated and I wasn't impressed with it considering the price I spent. My room was very warm because the air wouldn't turn down, there were multiple stains on the carpet, markings on the wall. I just wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. Its not... More
