This is a great hotel, with a great price and location - in the U district, near lots of good restaurants, and of course, the University of Washington and the UW Medical Center. The decor is sort of mod-hip, but very pleasing. The room was great - lots of pillows on the bed, flat screen TV. Our deluxe room had a microwave and fridge as well. Parking was free, in lots right on the property. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful.
They have an airport shuttle for $25.
My only complaint was breakfast - it was only the typical hotel fair: bagels, cereal, donuts, etc. The only fresh fruit was bananas (but at least they were organic). And, the had STARBUCKS coffee - ugh! I would think that with all the local, boutique roasters in Seattle, that a hip little hotel like this would have decent coffee.
If their breakfast/coffee had been better, they would have received 5 stars. I will definitely stay here on my next trip to Seattle.
