“Great location, comfy digs.”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

Stayed here recently while on a business trip to Seattle and was very pleased. The location is right near the UW locus and great for walking. Rooms were nicely updated, very clean and comfortable. Mine was a little on the tiny side compared to some others I've experienced in this price range, but certainly didn't take away from its comfort.

Staff were helpful, wifi good as one would expect in Seattle. The off-street parking was a huge plus but does cost a bit extra. Not a deal breaker and they didn't complain when I overstayed a bit on check out day.

I will stay here again and would not hesitate to recommend it wholeheartedly.

Room Tip: If you want a view, ask for a room higher up. If space is important, discuss room size with clerk.

We were very pleased from the reservation process through check out. We requested an upgrade on a Tuesday night and the staff accommodated happily. For a very reasonable amount, we ended up at the top of the hotel with a fantastic view of the city and campus. Meghan helped me surprise my husband with gourmet donuts and decorations for his birthday Wednesday morning. The service from the concierge was really good. The front desk staff was also helpful with assisting my sister and her family with parking when they stopped by to visit. The bar was pretty swanky and looked like it might be a little livelier on a weekend. We were here for a campus tour and picked it for proximity. Now we wouldn't stay anywhere else near campus! Thank you Hotel Deca for a first-class experience!

There is nothing wrong about just right. A clean and comfortable bed, the room was in good shape. Overall a little on the older side but that's not a complaint. Close to the university, I walked to class. Parking was provided,that's a plus. A limited restaurant but the food was always great.
Pros.. Clean, good price, great food.
Cons..no fridge, small rooms and restaurant.
I will be there again at the end of the month.

A bit more expensive then other hotels but perfect location if staying at u of wa tower or top of university road. I would stay there again. The rooms have a good view, but if the view is important to you - make certain you ask for such. Parking is an add on cost - but relatively worth it for the proportional cost and awkwardness of parking in the region. Good place to stay and walk.

NurseMD,

Thank you for your review. I have to agree that our views are amazing. Not many hotels in Seattle offer the jaw dropping views that we offer. It is always good to ask for a room with a view or to ensure you get an amazing view I always recommend reserving a sky level room. It is worth every penny.

Thank you again.

A colleague and I stayed at Hotel as we were in the area for business and were very satisfied overall with our stay. The room was very comfortable and clean, the view over Seattle was wonderful and the staff (in most cases) were friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hotel to others for business travel.

Room Tip: If you want a nice room, request to over look the city.

Hotel Deca is positioned perfectly to make the University of Washington easily accessible on foot. A variety of restaurants, including friendly college dives and quieter spots, are easily walkable. There is decent coffee shop attached directly to the hotel for your morning fix. The hotel is well updated but is in an older building, so don't be shocked if the bathrooms are pretty tiny and the toilet is so close to the door it makes you feel like you're in the middle of the room with the rest your party. As a group relaxed about bodily functions, we had a good laugh about the "closeness." Actually, this was a step above a W I stayed in recently where there was NO door to the bathroom and a huge glass partition between the shower and the rest of the room. Total peep show. That was ACTUALLY no privacy. I am a travel agent, I was specifically looking for nearby nearby quality and quantity, and there are plenty of places to eat drink and be merry. Since hotels within walking distance of the University of Washington are a bit sparse, Hotel Deca is a solid choice that will have you in the center of where you want to be

Dear Brandi M,

As a fellow member of the travel professional community your insight is incredibly valuable. As a travel agent I am sure you get the chance to explore a number of hotels so all of your positive comments are extremely important and valuable to us. I am so glad you enjoyed the hotel and our exciting neighborhood.

We actually did a renovation to our bathrooms a year ago to try and make the space more user-friendly. Because space is somewhat limited we added a ton of shelf space, updated the lighting and wallpaper and a few additional “behind the walls” enhancement. But most of all, we keep the old traditional doors and did not add a glass partition like the other hotel you mentioned. Some things just have to remain the same.

Thank you again,

Jonathan Bartlett
