Hardwood floors, down duvets (2x bed) so you don't have to fight over covers, comfortable pillows. Micro and small frig. Parking $15, but well worth it as the area isn't known for an abundance of parking. Staff pleasant. Definitely recommend for visits to UW or nearby surrounding areas. Rooms not overly large, so if you are planning on a roll... More

We had to switch rooms on arrival but only because it was too small for 3 people. The end units are much larger. I requested a top floor which they accommodated but as mentioned, room too small. We did get a larger room. But unfortunately had to deal with "heavy" walkers. However, I do understand because my niece who was... More

The Watertown has been my go to destination in the "U" district for many years. The Al la carte concept of interchangeability of enhancements and the uniquely laid out rooms are a joy to witness and provide a refuge and home away form home! There are many thoughtful touches and of those I appreciate the duvet bedding the most.

This hotel does everything they can to make their guests feel valued. From easy reservations, wonderful front desk staff and help with special requests, the staff has always been more than helpful and accommodating. The rooms are comfortable, spotless and well appointed. They do a great job and deserve high marks.

From the time we arrived, everyone at Watertown was extremely friendly, helpful, and accommodating. The front desk staff helped with restaurant suggestions and tips about the area. They also helped us schedule shuttle rides and cabs, if the shuttle was unavailable. The hotel is located within walking distance to UW campus and about a 10 minute shuttle ride to downtown....

You won't find a better hotel in Seattle near the University of Washington than Watertown Hotel. Comfortable, large room and plenty of nice amenities. Staff is well trained and helpful. Easy to walk to campus and our daughter's dorm. It is a little overpriced during football weekends, but probably all the local hotels were expensive. We will definitely return again... More

Great University district location. Very clean room. Comfortable bed. Great accommodations. Loved the secure parking garage. Even the hand soap smelled fantastic! However, the onsite Pineapple Cafe was rather disappointing. Friday morning brunch and they were out of ingredients for every single panini except caprese. Also out of vanilla flavoring for my friend's latte. They should step up their game... More
