“Excellent Stay”
Reviewed 29 June 2012

I attended a conference at the UW tower and this hotel is a walking distance and very convenient, closes to my favorite store Trader Joe and lots of restaurants . I stayed here for 4 nights and I have no complaint. Shuttle provided by the hotel is wonderful and the driver is a very nice young polite guy. I will definitely come back again ! Highly recommended !

It's wonderful to hear Watertown Hotel was an excellent fit for your recent stay in Seattle. We are very close to the University of Washington campus which makes it convenient for visitors such as your self. Our neighborhood is also full of restaurants, cafes, and bookstores which makes Watertown Hotel a prime urban destination hotel. Thank you for sharing your comments.

A great hotel, efficient and knowledeable staff, very nice room. Located a couple of blocks from the freeway exit (north/south I5) and from UW university district. For our family a full list of TV channels was a bonus. Only issues were around the quick as molasses speed of the internet, trickle of water pressure from the bath shower (spent more time rinsing shampoo from hair than you could imagine!) and lastly the zero hot water from the bath sink. Great plusses were the strong single brew coffees and the filtered cold water!

Room Tip: Maybe a lower floor to get better water pressure from the shower? (six floors high).

My nephew and I stayed here in part, because he wanted to be near a soccer field ( a probably downtown unless the Sounders share their field). The staff was very helpful, the beds were super comfortable, the rooms were meticulously cleaned every day, and the rooms weren't your typical boxy living units. There were nice picture windows ( important in a city that doesn't always get a lot of light), a microwave, refrigerator, filtered tap water, bottled water and enviro-friendly toiletries. The neighborhood isn't that lovely, but there is a free shuttle downtown. If I have one disappointment ( not gripe) it was that I managed to lose the room umbrella. Be more careful than I was as it will cost you $25. At $143/night though, I certainly don't have room to complain.

Room Tip: Select Room Away from Elevator- it's no fun having to confront teenagers chatting in the hall at...

Recently stayed at the Watertown for the first time. Nice clean hotel with a very friendly and helpfull staff.
Great location if you do not have a car. Close to shops,restaurants and the Gillman Burke trail. They also offer a free shuttle service to Pikes Market and the Space Needle. We made good use of the Shuttle.
Nice spacious room and very quiet. We were fortunate that the University was closed so there was not alot of traffic in the area.
Will definitely stay here on a return to Seattle.

It's been a couple of years since we (family of 6 with college and high school age kids) have stayed here -- our oldest daughter attends UW. Our previous experience with this hotel were very good and resulted in a positive review.

We found that things, for the most part, have not changed and we were very happy with our stay. Very convenient to the UW campus, convenient access to and from the freeway (I-5) make it an ideal "base camp" for exploring the Seattle area (and beyond), freindly & helpful staff (especially the guy from Maui who's the late night manager), secure gated parking and pass-key accessible elevators, bright decor, well maintained facility (rooms and building), yada yada yada. Basically a very positive experience in a nice hotel in a convenient location for exploring.

Only downer was that the free breakfast was no longer being offered, but the discounted breakfast was still acceptable. I also missed the hot chocolate chip cookies, but I guess that's just a sign of the times.

One additional nice thing was that there's a pretty extensive convenience store/deli right across the street to stock up on stuff (in case you can't find something in the hotel's sundry area and don't want to hoof it over to SafeWay). Make sure you get there before they close at 11 pm, though.

And, as before, the parking stalls are of a "compact" nature, so get ready to practice your backing-in skills if you're driving something larger than a sedan. Also, be careful of the sharp turn at the ramp out of the parking area by the gate -- you can side-swipe your car if you're not paying attention.

We'll be staying there again.
