We've started staying at this hotel every time we're in Seattle, since it's sister "Pineapple" hotel up the street, the Watertown, cut it's complimentary breakfast a while ago. The the rooms at the University Inn aren't quite up to the level of the Watertown's, but the lower rate includes a fairly decent cold buffet breakfast, wifi and free parking. The rooms are stylish, extremely clean and quiet. But the things that strikes me the most is the incredibly friendly staff. Honestly, all of them, from the front desk staff to the maintenance/housekeeping staff you meet in the hallways, each and every time we've stayed there.
The hotel is located in the U District, which allows easy access to the Burke Gilman trail for running or cycling, the University of Washington's beautiful campus, Lake Union and Fremont. You an also book a free shuttle to and from downtown, Woodland Park Zoo, Seattle Centre and I think a few other sports. Seattle's traffic can be a nightmare and parking is expensive downtown, so this is a real bonus.
