We chose this hotel based on the proximity to UW and because they offer free shuttle service to the University, among other destinations. We were extremely happy with our choice. We reserved the shuttle at check in and were promptly picked up at the requested time in a very nice (& new) shuttle bus. We chose to walk back from the campus & it was a pleasant 10-15 minute walk back. The hotel was a short 10 minute drive into downtown Seattle so we were able to easily catch a play in the evening and still obtain parking in the hotel's free onsite parking lot when we returned at 10 PM.
Our room was very clean, had comfortable beds and nice linen. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the room was stocked with Tommy Bahamas soaps and lotions. There was a Keurig coffee maker with Tully coffee in the room.
This hotel was a great value to begin with but when you add in all the things I mentioned above, I think it was an exceptional value. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. There is a continental breakfast which was fine. However, if you have time, the hotel is connected to the Portage Bay Cafe which is excellent for breakfast.
I would definitely stay here again.
