“Loved it”
Reviewed November 13, 2009

Although I booked with Priceline (at a very nice price), I was upgraded to a larger room since one was available - thanks to the very cordial staff. The room had a mild old hotel smell - well, it IS an old hotel that has been nicely redone in an interesting decor. There are great local dining/eating places in a university streetlife setting. Take the Metro bus from the airport for $1.75 and walk 2 short blocks to the hotel or the Shuttle Express van for $19.00. The hotel shuttle picked me up at my conference location and brought me back to the hotel gratis!
The main thing was that the room was spotless and the bed was extremely comfortable with crisp bedding. The staff was very welcoming and the decor harkened to 1940's in a lovely way.

This hotel has the very best people working for them, so friendly and kind with a big dash of helpful. They made me feel so welcome. I was their guest for 3 weeks in September and was so spoiled. In October I again had the privilage of staying there and they even remembered me by name. The hotel is very clean and the beds are comfortable. The view of course is spectacular. Shuttle service was fantastic as well… In fact I didn't rent a car because they were so flexible….Go ahead and stay here so they can spoil you as well..You won't regret it..................

Received this hotel on a priceline bid. It is convienent to the U. Checin was quick and the employees friendly and helpful. The room was nice but the bathrooms are small. It is an old hotel that has been remodeled nicely and has an art deco theme.

There is free wireless. The workout room is a joke. The breakfast in the basement restaurant was just OK but it may have been what I ordered. The beds are comfortable. Rooms on the upper levels have great views of the sound, the U, space needle, etc.

My son tells me opposing teams stay here when they are in town. All-in-all it is a nice, mid-range hotel and I would return.

Quaint, stylish, nifty and different. The staff was lovely, the little coffee shop attached to the lobby was convenient and delicious. We were confused about the parking situation but it all worked out and it was great to be near stores and such that we could walk to, like Half Price Books!! ROCK!

Forget the quirks of an old building (which I personally find charming!) because the staff more than make up for any small deficiencies. They were truly fabulous! There's a young man at the front desk that knows more about the local restaurant scene than any 5-star conceirge at the fru-fru hotels we've stay at. And the shuttle drivers know just about everything there is to know about Seattle and are so polite. We were in town for our neice's wedding and it was wonderful. The ballroom was beautiful, the food at the reception was delicious, and the service attentive. We had a room with a lovely view of the Space Needle, a comfy bed, and it was very clean. Overall grade A+!

I recently stayed at the Hotel Deca because we were dropping off my little sis at college. I would have to say that it is one of the best Seattle hotels around. This hotel was in a great location and even though it was a little more expensive then usual hotels, it was well worth it.

I would reccomend this hotel with some reservations. It was stylish, had some of the necessarys like internet, etc. and the beds were super comfy. HOWEVER, it was fairly far from where I wanted to sightsee. If visitng the University only it would be perfect but everywhere else is a hike. The staff was friendly enough but not particularly helpful in addressing two concerns I had. I heard there was a free shuttle from a friend that lives in Seattle not from the staff. Next time I visit, I will pay more for a better location.
