This was our family's first stay in Seattle and the Watertown Hotel was perfect. The rooms were modern, very spacious, and clean. The staff was very helpful with directions and a suggestion for breakfast. It is located near the University of Washington campus, but the free shuttle made it extremely easy to get downtown and back. I would definitely recommend...

Two blocks from the beautiful and serene campus of Univ. of Washington--absolutely a must for an early AM walk. Close to good food, the freeways, and an incredible hardware store, of all things--totally a kick to walk through while you wait for your table at the restaurant next door! Free onsite parking and wifi, afternoon coffee and mini-cupcakes, clean and...

Dear JaneE1956, Thanks for such a great response regarding your recent stay at The Watertown Hotel. We are glad you enjoyed our signature cupcakes as well as our breakfast offerings in the Pineapple Cafe. Our fitted sheets have arrived and are in the wash as we speak. They should be in the rooms by the end of the week, which...

We were very impressed with the friendly helpful reception that checked us in early to a large, immaculately clean room with a very comfortable bed, and more importantly good quality pillows. The only downside was that the bottom sheet was too small for the bed and could not be tucked in. This resulted in us waking up in a tangle...

This is really fun hotel. The lobby is modern and cool with unique furniture pieces and some cool neon. The rooms themselves are what I would call a industrial modern and very comfortable. The hotel offers movie loans and board games if you are staying with family. The lobby has a coffee service and café items. The food was OK,...

Second time at the Watertown Hotel. Our last visit was back in 2009. I had the positive review then, and again, I have the positive review and better rating. For UDub business, we were here before 8am, left the luggages and they shuttled us to the campus. It was the very easy fun walk back to the hotel through the...

Hubby, Good Friend, and I came to Seattle for the wedding of Great Friends. No one could have gotten us on a cross-country flight on Friday evening and back the next Monday except Great Friends.

Dear Cattledogs, Good to hear we still get great remarks after 4 years! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay, our rooms, and amenties. I am sorry about the challenges with our wi-fi.

The U District was not the first place I thought of when it came to finding a Seattle hotel. But it makes perfect sense, even if your visit has nothing to do with UDub (mine sure didn't). The Watertown is an appealing hotel located on a relatively quiet street. Downtown is 10 minutes away in light traffic via I-5; and...

Dear George_PConnecticut, Thank you for such a nice review of the Watertown Hotel in the U-district. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and hear you on the parking garage. It is a nice, and safe feature, meanwhile some of the spots are a bit cozy. I think vehicles have grown in size since this hotel was built! In any...

We stayed four nights at the Watertown Hotel and were sad to leave. We had a huge room, huge bathroom, fridge, microwave, iron and ironing board, desk, lots of windows (we had a corner room). Very cute contemporary new furnishings. There was an apt. size washer/dryer down the hall available at no charge. It has a workout room and bikes...

Highly recommend...excellent service and appreciate all the complimentary services..bike rental, shuttle, bottled water in room, umbrella, etc! The view from our room of Mount Rainier was a delightful surprise too! Convenient location for University but less so for downtown interest.

O boy, I love this place. Free secure parking, cozy and stylish common areas, four blocks' walk to the Ave, ten minutes to downtown, and free wi-fi.
