Surprisingly quiet Beds are incredibly comfortable- a great night's sleep Spacious room and bath/dressing area Robes and slippers Outstanding cafe with several good hot breakfast items
Confusing access/approach to hotel (no driveway and "no parking" signs in front). Should get a loading zone at minimum. There's a garage entry, but no signage telling you how to contact front desk or to check in. None would be a problem if you arrive without a rental car.
They were great about letting me park in their garage before my room was ready. They held my luggage for me until I could get in the room. They called me- a real person called me to let me know my room was ready. They had free bicycles you could use. The beds in the rooms are to die for! The room was nice and roomy. They even have a brochure detailig all the restaraunts within walking distance. They thought of everything!!!
This was my first time in Seattle. Even though the hotel was excellent, I think I will try and get closer to the Space Needle area if I go back. (I should have done more research on the area I wanted to stay in- which is my fault) BUT it is a superb hotel and would be excellent if you are visiting someone at the University. There is nothing I can say that is negative about this hotel!
Great hotel and location. Free bike rental, umbrellas, secure parking and washing machines are a huge perk. Overall one of the best deals in Seattle.
Free parking, walk to any UW event....
They used to do interesting little things to enhance the experience. Now it is just a Hampton or a Courtyard with slightly better art. Also, they assign rooms based on how you made the reservation. My Kayak reservation got me a second floor room next to the elevator, with a view of the dumpster and a coupon for a discount if I booked directly next time. I've stayed in the hotel many many and made the reservation months in advance for a very special occasion. I was disappointed this time..
The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. We needed directions to the UW Medical center and they got us there no problem. By the way, if you have to go to the Medical Center this is an ideal location, very easy to get to from the Watertown. The rooms are comfortably spacious and well appointed. Hardwood floors which is a nice change, since my husband and I both have allergies. There are windows in the room that open for fresh air. Drapes that cover all windows and provide a dark sleeping space, should you like that. The beds are very comfortable and the bedding is allergen free - no feathers! They provide parking at no additional charge.
There was a heating unit in the room that we could not get to turn off, so our rest was interrupted during the night. The coffee maker did not work. Not enough chairs in the room; There was a desk chair that was it. No schedule for the TV so could not figure out which channel was which. There is not an identified space in front of the hotel for temporary parking while you go check in.
Location near uw and bus routes staff accommodating needs of guests excellent service of transport afternoon tea and fruit comfortable, homely atmosphere fridge/microwave facility
Cardboard plates at breakfast plastic knives and forks
Visited the university campus and attended a football game there. We also walked to the stadium, enjoyed harbor scenes, and ate at a sports bar as we walked back to the hotel. The parking garage is also very convenient.
The coffee maker arrangement is cumbersome to use.
