“Bright, modern hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2012

This hotel was purchased by the Pineapple group a while back, and they are cutting back to save money. When we stayed we found that breakfast was no longer included in the price of the room, although you can buy breakfast at the cafe in the lobby. Price of the rooms is the same!

That having been said, it's a bright hotel and the rooms are delightful. Includes a small fridge and microwave.

Room Tip: We always request a room on the top floor so no-one is above us.

I’m happy to read you enjoyed your recent stay at Watertown Hotel. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. I’m pleased you appreciated Watetown’s modern and bright design. We will be upgrading our lobby this Summer to further accentuate those points. We do have the Pineapple Café located in our North Lobby now serving breakfast and lunch. We will soon extend the Café’s hours to early evening. Hotel guests always get 15% off! Thank you again for your comments and we hope to welcome you back soon.

Good size comfortable room with modern decor. Gated indoor parking included (very nice)!
I didn't get a chance to enjoy some of the amenities offered this time. I would definitely stay at this hotel again next time in Seattle.
Remember to ask the front desk for the availabiltity of amenities and services as you check-in.

In Seattle for Windermere Cup Crew Races
What a great hotel, walking distance from UW. Extremely friendly, helpful desk staff; free shuttle to downtown ( driver extremely helpful with local sites & places to avoid) with drop off right acrossthe street from Norstroms & the metro line .
Very nice room--lots of space & light; free, protected, underground parking.
Nice little mini pineapple cupcakes in the early evening.
Will be going back there, a good value.

Thank you very much for taking the time to share your experience at Watertown Hotel with your fellow travelers. I’m happy you were able to attend such a traditional event such as the Windermere Cup. Watertown strives to be, as you say, “a good value” by offering five star service and providing free amenities that make travelling easier. Our location close to University of Washington and free shuttle to downtown makes Watertown a convenient location for any and all special events happening in Seattle. Free cupcakes and coffee at check-in never hurts either! Thank you again for your comments and I’m delighted to hear the positive feedback.

We love this hotel. Near UW and has a lot of amenity--lovely front desk, free news paper, free shuttle to downtown, free bike, free coffee and delicious pasty in the afternoon, free parking. Beautiful room with modern decor. It will be perfect if it provides breakfast. We will definitely stay there if we are in the area again.

We picked this hotel because of its proximity to Seattle Children's Hospital. We loved the location - walking distance to the "Ave" and a short drive to University Village. Loved the free parking, coffee and cupcakes in the lobby, popcorn in the room, comfy beds, free internet. We would stay here again!

I would like to thank you for sharing your experience at Watertown Hotel with your fellow travelers. I’m delighted to hear our location was convenient for you being close to Childrens Hospital, University Village and University Way (A.K.A “The Ave”). The University District of Seattle is a very walkable neighborhood and the Watertown Hotel is right in the middle of it! We are happy to offer all of our guests FREE parking, coffee and cupcakes in the evening, and in-room popcorn and water. We also have a FREE shuttle! Thank you again for reviewing Watertown and we can’t wait to have you back!

This is a great place to stay. The rooms are airy and fresh, and have an interesting layout that makes the bathroom and outer sink/vanity area quite private. The free parking is a plus, as is the free shuttle to and from downtown. It's a few blocks to the Burke Gilman trail,if you're into running or cycling, especially with families, as it is completely separated from traffic. In one direction you can go out towards Bothell along the shore of Lake Washington, or through Freemont and out towards Ballard and the locks in the other direction.

I only have two beefs They used to offer a complimentary breakfast, which was fairly basic (fruit, yogurt, cereal, toast/muffins, etc.), but appreciated nonetheless. Included breakfast is pretty much standard these days, no? The other thing is the pricing, which seems to be all over the map and go up and down every time we stay here. I'd still go back, though, since i like the U (University) District.

Room Tip: Third floor or above, for a better view.

Thank you very much for taking the time to share your comments about your recent stay at Watertown Hotel. I’m very pleased to hear you found your room comfortable, airy, and fresh. I’m also happy to hear you enjoyed our free shuttle to downtown and free parking. I regularly recommend the Burke-Gilman Trail for recreational use for the whole family.
We have upgraded our food and beverage offerings by opening the Pineapple Café in our north lobby. We can now offer our guests a more complete menu for breakfast AND lunch including any espresso drink you can think of. Thank you again for your comments and we look forward to welcoming you back to the University District of Seattle.

Modern, comfortable and spacious. Parking was secure and free! We took the complimentary shuttle into the shopping district which was really nice since we didn't have to worry about parking. Overall a nice place to stay!

I'm happy to hear you enjoyed your recent stay at Watertown Hotel and thank you for sharing your experience on TA. Leaving the car parked in our free secured garage and leave the driving to our shuttle drivers is a plan many find convenient and we are happy to offer those amenities to ALL of our guests. Modern, comfortable, and spacious are three things we put priority on during the design and building of Watertown. Thank you again for your comments and we look forward to your next visit!
