I was so happy that the Watertown was available for my trip to Seattle. From the free parking to the free shuttle service, to the keurig coffee makers in your room, it's all of the little things that add up to make this hotel one of my favorites. Highly recommded!

Just a few blocks from the heart of University Avenue, and two blocks from the wonderful Portage Bay Cafe (best breakfast in the city). If you haven't been in Seattle before, you need to know that the U-District is fairly distant from downtown, the waterfront, the sports area, Seattle Center, etc. But since my business was with the university, it...

Very nice rooms with a mini-fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. Free parking in the hotel garage is a huge perk as parking is difficult and expensive near the University. The hotel has free WiFi, a business center and fitness room. Complimentary bikes and shuttles to many area destinations is terrific. Breakfast and snacks are available in the lobby for a...

The rooms are largish, the prices are reasonable and wiif is free. The location is out of the way for destinations other than the University -- the hotel advertises a free shuttle to downtown and other destinations, but it was booked up or unavailable almost every time I asked.

We have stayed at the Watertown on two prior trips as well as at their sister property the University Inn when we travel with the kids.
