The two really good things about this hotel are that it is very close to the University of Washington campus, so if something on or near campus brings you to town, this is a good option, as far as location. The staff at the front desk was very nice too. And if you are on an upper floor, it will be a great view at some times of year (it is Seattle).
But, all the reviews that mention the room cleaning needing a little more attention are dead on. I stayed 4 days, and the same crumbs were on the floor on day 3 as day 1, though after mentioning it to the desk, my room did get vacuumed. There were also random stray hairs throughout the bathroom that definitely did not come from me.
Something that they really can't do anything about is the walls. They are very thin. As in, when the person next door turned on the news at 6 am, I was not only awakened, but I could hear and make out every word. Very thin walls.
