This hotel was a total surprise! My boyfriend and I expected lower quality, based on the price, but upon arrival, were mistaken!!! The staff was welcoming and friendly, the rooms were spotless and well maintained AND we lived the decor!!! 5 stars all around! I will definitely be back!!!

Great hotel, in a vibrant happening spot with lots of food options close by. The room was beautifully decorated in art deco style and was incredibly comfortable and spacious. Highly recommend. Not impressed with the hold on credit card for "incidentals".

We booked a night at the Deca, with no expectations, as an overnight stop on our way to Bellingham to catch the Alaska ferry. Turns out it was a big mistake to not stay longer.

We start one night and were impressed. This is a very old but well maintained high rise hotel. High end art deco styling everywhere. Awesome city views are available of you get an upper floor. Situated in the middle of the university district.

Every time we go to Seattle, we use Captain Kirk's "name your own price" website to bid for a room in the University District. We've managed to get Hotel Deca several times, and we've never been disappointed. In fact, we secretly hope to get Hotel Deca every time. First off, there is good security. The room key is required to...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Since its origin Hotel Deca has remained a fixture among Seattle’s University District hotels serving the needs of leisure and business travelers for 75 years. Our contemporary lobby with its warm fireplace, bold murals, and book strewn mahogany bookcases welcomes everyone as a distinguished guest. Elegantly appointed guest rooms feature boldly patterned textiles, a corner bay window, luxurious down blankets, wireless internet access, and of course every other modern convenience. For guests lucky enough to stay in our Sky level rooms (floors 7 thru 15), the hotel offers some of the best views in all of Seattle of the downtown skyline, the University of Washington campus, the surrounding lakes, or the beautiful mountain vistas. If you are looking for something even more unique, try our Penthouse floor. Featuring three unique suites with their own fireplaces, marble baths, flat-panel televisions, and wrap around outdoor decks, they are the pinnacle of luxury. Located in the heart of Seattle’s University District, the Hotel Deca is situated just two blocks for the University of Washington’s main campus. A brief stroll through our historic neighborhood leads to the discovery of a unique blend of architecture, culture, and outdoor adventure. Whether it is the Burke-Gilman trail where hikers and bikers alike enjoy 27 miles of scenic adventure, the Burke Museum of Natural History, or the many eclectic shops, restaurants, and theatres, there is always something new to discover. We are just 3 miles from downtown Seattle where some of the finest restaurants, antique shops, boutiques, and museums in the country enjoy spectacular views of Puget Sound. While in town guests can also enjoy leisurely sunset cruises, Duck tours, golfing, winery tours…the possibilities are endless! Hotel Deca is a 30-minute ride from SEATAC International airport. ... more   less
