The front desk staff was very welcoming and even upgraded us to a deluxe city view on the 15th floor where we had a wonderful view of Mt. Rainier on a couple of mornings. They were also very accommodating when I extended my stay by 2 days.
The room was very comfortable with a soft-but-not-too-soft king size bed with down pillows and duvet, iPod friendly alarm clock, flatscreen t.v. with DVD player, two sitting chairs and a desk and table. The bathroom was clean and old fashion, with a porcelain pedestal sink and bathtub. The bathroom amenities were pretty nice too.
In the hotel's lobby there is a Tully's Coffee shop and a restaurant/bar on the lower level. The restaurant also provides room service to the hotel for dinner.
The location is pretty good, being in the University District, with a few restaurants in walking distance from breakfast to dinner. There is also a Safeway right up the street. If you don't want to drive, there are usually cabs waiting outside, with the most of them being around in the evening. The hotel also provides a shuttle service to and from the airport. We didn't use any public transport, but there is a bus stop out front too. They do have a parking lot and they charge $15.00 per day. Look for specials on their website though, we were able to get a deal for $7.50 a day.
I look forward to visiting Seattle again and would definitely stay at the Hotel Deca.
