    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Deca, Seattle

    Loved It!!!

    from

    We had a great stay at the hotel. It was clean, comfortable, the view was great. The hotel has such character with its art deco style. The beds were comfortable. The staff were professional and very friendly. Free internet access (15 min limit in the lobby). Location is good, very close to transit that can take you downtown in a few minutes. Close to my favorite locations (Wallingford and Freemont). Free Parking.

    Very nice

    from

    Have stayed here two times before -- once before renovation. Great views, good location. Fairly priced hotel in university location, so lots of university-shopping nearby (e.g., grocery, pharmacy, bookstore, restaurants). Great parking lot (free). I asked for high floor facing mt. ranier and got a view of it only if I got right to the window and looked 90 degrees to the right. I paid extra for the view and still didn't get as good of a view as on my previous two trips (where the U of Washington picked up the room cost directly -- maybe they get priority on rooms). But my room faced EastNorth, so i didn't get as much noise from 45th street, so that's the advantage. Also, the air conditioning could work a bit better but it is an old hotel. All in all, a great place to stay.

    Chic boutique at a bargain price

    from

    This is a chic boutique hotel, wonderful for the bargain price. Rooms have a unique layout and city views. The lobby is beautifully decorated like an art-deco library, with a huge fireplace -- an inviting place to hang out.

    No room service, but the hotel restaurant serves fine, Middle Eastern-influenced tapas accompanied by live jazz/Latin rhythms.

    Although not downtown, the hotel is located in the University District, with plenty of casual restaurants, cafes and commerce in the immediate area. And the university neighborhood is attractive in its own right. The hotel is close to bus stops for an easy, cheap trip downtown.

    Service is friendly and professional. Enjoyed my stay; highly recommended.

    Spectacular Views

    from

    I requested a room as high as possible with either a downtown or a mountain view for the end of February. They put me on the 9th floor with a view of both. In the morning, I could see the Space Needle sticking out of the fog and Mt. Reineer rising in the distance. The rooms are a little small and the elevators are a little dark (and blue), but fair for the price. Conveniently located near all sorts of dining options and shopping options. The hotel is easy to drive to and has free parking. The continental breakfast was one of the best I have seen, once I found it. I must have missed the signs. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Seattle and parts north of there.

    Chic, cheap - I love this hotel

    from

    I don't stay in Best Western's often, but this has to be the nicest I've ever seen. The hotel is very chic, with sharp and fun fixtures and furniture in the rooms. My room had a very nice view of downtown, Space Needle, etc. It's very clean, has a young and friendly staff, and for the price, I was surprised. The room made you feel a little like you were in an Ian Schrager hotel. It's located in the University District, which really isn't too convenient to downtown - probably a 15 minute drive with traffic, but the U-District has its own restaurants, bars and stores to offer. The area is probably more for the young than the old, as it's surrounded by students, but it's a very safe and fun area.

    More than Pleased

    from

    This hotel was a great find. Close enough to everything and the parking lot was huge. The view from our room was great and the bed was extremely comfortable. I was impressed since the price was so very reasonable. The colours of the hotel were very vibrant--golds, reds, and blues. Definitely not your run-of-the-mill Best Western. The dining area for the complimentary breakfast was very pleasant and comfortable.

    The only complaints for the hotel is that their elevators (2) were tremendously slow and their washroom taps (shower as well as sink) don't follow the conventional turning directions (opposite from the usual direction if you want water to be colder or hotter). Oh yes, and their fitness room was extremely crappy (outdated equipment and no air ventilation for a tiny room). If you plan on exercising during your stay, this would not be the place for you.

    Not Downtown But Great Anyways

    from

    This is a great little hotel. Stylish rooms with great colors, super comfortable beds, and interesting room layouts. The area is near U of Washington and University Way, with restaurants and shops, is just one block away.

    Also, a nice touch: two kiosks in the lobby that offer free Internest access (keep it to 15 minutes though). The only disappointing feature of the hotel: the fitness room was not good--outdated equipment crammed into a small room. I'm not sure if there's a fitness center close by but I wouldn't be surprised.

    I'd stay here again, even though when I first booked, I was a little disappointed because I wasn't staying at a downtown hotel. All in all, a great little hotel.

    PS: Cab to downtown Seattle ran me around $14 per trip.

    Cheap & Nice

    from

    Great location north of the city. Close to the University, free parking is a plus. Used the Highspeed Internet access in the lobby alot, keyboard and screen. Small room, but its Seattle, go out and see the city. I would suggest only 2 people per room. Clean and has everything you need. Great price for under $100.

    Great find

    from

    what a great find...free parking, only a few minutes from downtown,great rooms and views, down comforters, and all the other luxury amenities...front desk staff was great...very clean....all for 99.00 .....

    Beautiful Hotel -- Great Views!

    from

    The only reason that this hotel is rated above average as opposed to excellent is the lack of room service or a lounge on property.

    The tower is octagonal, giving the rooms a unique floor plan. My room had a corner three-faceted window -- the view of the Space Needle was in the middle with Mt. Ranier off to the left side. Stunning.

    Lobby staff was extemely helpful with restaurant recommendations -- even printed a map for us. U Wash. is within walking distance. The Art Deco-styled lobby was extraordinary.

    Smokers beware -- the entire hotel is non-smoking and they make you sign a waiver stating that if you smoke in your room, you've gotta fork over $25.
