I spent 4 days at the Hotel Deca while visiting UW on business. I had stayed here once before, and it seems to be the go-to place for UW visitors. I liked some things about the hotel, was disappointed by others. Basics first: the bed was very comfortable. Shower, towels etc. were perfectly serviceable, though not great. I was told upon check-in that I was upgraded to a room on a higher floor. I was in a corner room about half way up. But I found the 'upgraded' room to be a little pokey. Rather limited storage, and the armchair in the room wasn't so comfortable. Some things were done well, e.g., lots of extra outlets for charging devices etc.; it's surprising how many hotels fall short on that count. Oh, and the view from the window was quite good - on a clear morning, I woke to see Mt Rainier in clear view out of my window. Nice. Free wifi is reliable, but on the slow side. No in room fridge. The location of the hotel is convenient, right next to the bustling U District, with many eateries that are moderately priced but good. Just a couple of minutes walk to UW. I would stay here again on a visit to UW, but mostly because the options seem relatively limited.
