Reviewed yesterday NEW

If you're in Seattle doing business at the university, this is the place to stay. Super convenient, boutique-y without being so hip that you feel like the staff is hipper than you. Great beds (and bed linen), free bikes (Burke-Gilman Trail, everybody!), The Ave has a zillion and one restaurants. Also, a shuttle van to downtown.

We were so close to everything and the service was unbelievable. We felt like we were staying in a luxury boutique hotel without having to pay those prices. Front desk service was phenomenal, rooms were spacious and clean and they all kinds of freebies like Keurig coffee-makers, microwaves, refrigerators and the shuttle service. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Seattle.

What a cute hotel! We stayed just one night but should we find ourselves back in the area we will stay again. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, I loved having my own duvet!

As the title states we were there on business so a place to stay from 5pm-6am is what we were after. So I rated this stay on that aspect. With that being said the reasons for not 5 stars were this, the parking garage exit was hard to manage with a larger truck. The first morning on exit we coldly...

I found the staff to be very friendly and the room was extremely clean and the bed was comfortable with a wonderful fluffy light duvet! I brought my dog, and was delighted to find a little welcome gift basket waiting for him, with water bowl, treats, and a little baggy dispenser - all useful and appreciated!

We stayed at the Watertown Hotel in Seattle for a recent wedding. The hotel is very comfortable, modern and clean. The hotel charges a parking fee but the lot was full when we returned after midnight. Our only choice was to park on the street.
