as can now be expected, the front desk is top notch, location great and yes, the wifi continues to work great! For us, the convenience of this location cannot be beat. Our first family Christmas holiday in Seattle was made better because of this location. Central to shopping centers, malls, outlets, downtown, restaurants, etc. If there are any downsides is that the in-room heater/ac can be irritating as it kicks off and on all nite to maintain temp and the shower water pressure is pretty bad. Otherwise, there is no better location or property for us. Could not get a good deal this time around but we'll keep returning.

Room Tip: higher floors and south side for the view. Otherwise, keep your blinds closed throughout your stay.

Watertown is a quiet, cosy hotel that has a wonderful staff. They are invariably helpful, cheerful and welcoming. The Manager, Connie, personally drove me to the University Village when the shuttle driver could not come to work on a snowy day and she also made sure I had a return ride back to the hotel. I was very impressed by this sign of professionalism. We stayed 4 nights and enjoyed our airy corner room, bigger than typical NYC studios.

There are convenient shuttle buses every 15 minutes to the UW Medical Center and Harborview Hospital. The bus stops are diagonally across the hotel. Two blocks away is a "food street" with reasonably-priced restaurants lined up on both sides, practically one next to the other. Not to be missed is the Portage Bay Cafe about 2 minutes' walk down the road. Locals come from far and wide for breakfasts and brunches. Watertown Hotel does have a small cafe that has a nice fresh selection of essential breakfast and lunch items.

Seattle downtown is quite walkable and the hotel has hourly shuttles to various locations. From the drop-off points, it is very pleasant to stroll along the piers, explore Seattle Center, Pike Market, Pacific Place, Aquarium, Art Museum etc.

Room Tip: The corner rooms on the high floors are the best.

According to the website, a dog bed is provided for pet-friendly rooms, so we left ours at home. No such amenity! Luckily we had a room with a sofa where our dog could sleep, but we prefer not encouraging her to get on furniture.

Room Tip: King suites are ideal for hosting a large family gathering.

Dear SAdairG,

I am so sorry we did not have a dog bed for your beloved pet. We have had a large number of animals in the house and may have not had enough to go around. I will ensure we purchase a few more to properly bed down our furry friends!

The Watertown is a delightful hotel with spacious rooms, fabulous bedding, reasonable rates, and a very friendly and helpful staff. The mini fridge, microwave, and coffee maker in the room was appreciated. A great place for couples, families, or business.

My husband and I stayed here because of a commitment at the University of Washington. The hotel is convenient to the campus and you can walk it but the hotel also provides a shuttle on the half hour. You have to reserve your spot but it works perfectly and was very welcome to us since the temperature was below freezing. The staff of the hotel is very friendly; the rooms are comfortable and the wifi is free. There is also a small cafe in the hotel but it is only open mornings through the afternoon so you can't get anything at night there. The food is so-so. There is a microwave and fridge in the room and a small market across the street from the hotel. One small complaint is that when we arrived, I entered the parking garage but could not get in without a room key. This meant backing out into very heavy oncoming traffic. Other hotels usually let you enter the parking by taking a ticket and then you use the room key going forward. However, parking is complimentary which is a plus. All in all, a nice, friendly place to stay.

Dear dlf_fla,

Thank you for your kind comments about our hotel. We are glad you found our staff friendly, rooms comfortable, and the shuttle to be helpful in transporting you.

We do buzz you into the parking garage before you check in and get your room key, for future visits. I apologize if this was not clear on your most recent stay.

We recently visited our daughter, who attends UW, and needed to find a hotel in Seattle that could accommodate my husband and me, as well as, our son and his dog. We arrived in two cars and were pleased to be able to park both cars in the hotel’s free parking garage. When we got to our room, we were pleasantly surprised at how large and open the room was. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful and provided us with a “doggie gift bag” filled with treats such as a tennis ball, dog cookies, and a doggie waste bag dispenser. Food and water bowls, and a pet bed were also provided. Our dog was so happy and felt very welcome.
The hotel was within walking distance of my daughter’s sorority house and the UW campus, which was convenient. We enjoyed the Tommy Bahama toiletries and the beds were comfortable. We will stay here again when visiting Seattle.

We stayed here for two nights while visiting my daughter who attends University of Washington. Great location, within walking distance to everything we needed . The room was updated, clean and well stocked with toiletries, coffee and water. Parking was free and so was the wifi.

The staff was wonderful, helpful and friendly - two thumbs up for the front desk staff that gave us great recommendations on where to eat - don't recall their names, one was a guy from W. VA and the other was a guy from Sacramento. Totally pointed us in the right direction - Tango & sports bar. The housekeeper really was nice and very helpful.

Work out room and bikes are great.
