“Wonderful stay!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2013

I just spent 3 night at this hotel right in the heart of the University District. My room was so clean with pull out windows for fresh air . The mattress was firm and the sheets were crisp and clean. No carpet on the floor. The desk staff were so helpful with directions and ordering taxis. The hotel has a free shuttle that can drive you to spots around town. I will go here again and again and again.

Room Tip: choose a room on the upper floors for views of Mt. Rainier

My fourth visit to this modest hotel with good sized rooms. The rooms are immaculately clean. Great, friendly and helpful staff will win you over. No carpet on our floor or curtains for those with allergies. Highly recommended 3.5-4/5 ! (5/5 = Mandarin, Four Season, Penisular chains)

The Watertown is a seriously welcoming hotel. I traveled with a large group of students and was the one handling reservations, shuttles, etc., and all of the Watertown staff were incredibly helpful and friendly throughout our stay. Our arriving flight had us in town much too early for check-in, and we were allowed to check in early. The staff had great suggestions for places to visit. The rooms were very clean, homey, and practical. The hotel itself is a skip away from UW campus, which was convenient for our purposes - yet it was close enough to downtown to easily get to Pike Place, the Space Needle, and every other place we wanted to visit, too! The complimentary shuttle, bikes, coffee, and pineapple cupcakes definitely didn't hurt, either. I just loved this hotel.

This hotel lives up to the many positive reviews listed here and on other sites. I loved everything about the place. It was very clean, safe and aesthetically pleasing. The microwave and mini fridge were a welcome convenience. There is a small market across the street and many restaurants nearby.

Room Tip: I stayed in a corner room on the sixth floor. Amazing views and quiet.

We had a great stay at this hotel! The university area is full of funky little ethnic restaurants, and there are lovely strolling areas, both on the beautiful campus and on the neighboring streets which are full of old turn of the century homes, including many large "mansions' which are now sorority houses. Although it is outside of the downtown core, it is very easy to get onto town using the free shuttle. We made use of this twice. One of the times, we were going to be returning too late to use this, so the front desk staff printed out detailed instructions and google maps showing how to catch one of the many buses that run out to the university. It was so simple! This hotel refers to it's "Pineapple Hospitality" with good reason. The staff at this hotel truly go out of their way to do everything they can to make your stay the best it can be.
Some of the nice touches? Cupcakes and Starbucks coffee in the lobby each afternoon, secure free parking, Keurig coffee pod systems in the rooms, free bikes for guests to use (there's a great bike trail nearby), robes, microwave, fridge, bottles of water, popcorn, Tommy Bahamas toiletries, comfy beds with lots of pillows, and very clean rooms. The one thing that was missing: although our room was very large, there was no sofa or armchair. All in all, we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!

Very clean, friendly, but small, peculiar layout, mixture of modern and eclectic decor..smack dab in the middle of nowhere...if your visiting Seattle stay downtown....Watertown is likely a fantastic budget hotel or great spot if your visiting the university.

Yes. I believe we do a fair amount of traveling and we have been to many hotels in this price range in various different cities around the world. I don't think I loved any other hotels as much as I loved this one.

1. A microwave and a fridge is a must. Thanks for having them. Seriously. Great storage area for food and other junk!
2. The view was, kinda crappy to be honest, but I loved the blinds and I am sure the hotel has rooms with a better view. I liked the setup of the room, with closets having two doors on each side. I loved the fact that the floor wasn't carpeted. The baby crawled around all over the place having so much fun. Other hotels, usually we don't want to put the baby on the ground because the carpets are nasty.
3. I have never seen a hotel that brings you baby toys. Wha!? My baby enjoyed playing with them so much. It took four phone calls to get the crib for the baby, but when I got it, it was very nicely set up with a very cute quilt. So worth all the calls. We were staying in a two queen room and the crib fit just perfectly between the beds.
4. No complimentary breakfast. You may think it's a negative, but in the city of excellent breakfast cafes, do you really want a complimentary continental crap? We loved venturing out to some of the most excellent breakfast places I have been to.
5. Free parking. Yes. Free parking. Again, Free parking.
6. Can't beat the location. Stroll around UDub area for college town food, and if you want to go somewhere far, the location is so central and oh so close to the I-5.
7. Great location for a late night Dick's run.
