I spent one night here at the University Inn for an appointment at Harborview Medical Center, and it was a great stay. Location was perfect, just outside the madness of Seattle, but close enough to everything that you could get there in a short amount of time. Room was probably one of the cleanest hotel rooms I have stayed in,...

I've reviewed this hotel before and the staff continue to be outstanding - this time especially the friendly housekeeper, even though we always managed to be underfoot when she wanted to tidy our room. A few things have changed and were disappointments. The free parking has now become $15/night and the breakfast could use a little more substance. The breakfast...

This is a very nice hotel that has been thoughtfully remodeled. The staff is first rate. However, the best thing about it is the location. Within walking distance of the U of W and a lot of restaurants and local shops. My new go to hotel for Seattle!

Booking my reservation was a breeze. I had just checked into my room and cracked open one of the gratis water bottles when an incredibly loud roaring sound started in my bathroom. This was LOUD, like can't sleep through it even with earplugs kind of loud. I called the front desk and they moved me to the best room in...

The room was clean and quiet. Loved having my own duvet. Pineapples everywhere was an added conversation piece. Walk to University was longer than the mile stated, more like 1.8 miles to the Alaska Pavilion.

We stayed in a deluxe room with two queen beds and had the best sleep ever in a hotel/motel. The European style duvets were an unexpected delight and added to the sleep experience. The staff was fantastic! They took excellent care of our needs and went above and beyond our requests in a cheerful, polite manner. The hotel is lovely...

Each year, for the past 3 years, I bring students from the east coast, where I live and work, to UW to present their research. I found The University Inn the first time I visited and will not stay anywhere else. I am the type of person who likes to explore new cities and new hotels...however, when in Seattle I...

Stayed two nights before our cruise and couldn't have been more pleased with this fun hotel with a happy, quirky pineapple theme everywhere! Excellent, sparkling clean, and the pineapple theme is adorable! Loved the Euro bedding, the room decor, pineapple robe, slippers, the bright yellow umbrella (which was used and appreciated), the stuffed dog on the bed, Tommy Bahama toiletries,...

Very friendly and helpful staff, especially the ladies at front desk, as well as A.J, Michael and Jeremiah who saved me when I needed to make last minute copies for a presentation. Thanks guys! Would definitely recommend this hotel! Great location on the U-District, right next door to the delicious Portage Bay Cafe and within walking distance to many restaurants.

Overall: My husband and I recently stayed here the night before he had a surgery at the University of Washington Medical Center. Loved that it was walking distance to the hospital and they offer discount rates when you are having something done at the hospital (which was great for us, as medical bills are piling up). Their parking is 15/night,...

“Roosevelt is noisy - choose a room on the other side. Newer rooms are quite pleasant & comfy, but would not stay in the older wing again.”
