We averted danger but it meant making many stops along the way which forced us to use the horrible port-a-potties in the Washington ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Watertown Hotel Seattle
A great find
Great bedroom, lots of space, Aveda products in the bathroom and excellent service. Fabulous complimentery breakfast. Only 10 minutes to downtown and superb value for money. Very clean. airy and modern. We had a very enjoyable stay. I would highly reccomend this hotel. No room service, but that did not matter to us. We ordered take away pizza and ate out. It was a pleasure to stay here.
Wow. We decided to try this little spot in Seattle after reading the reviews here on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. The hotel is a bit out-of-the-way in that you can't really walk to Pike's Place and everything around it. But it is most certainly worth the drive. It is located just a few steps away from the UW Medical School. The front desk looks like urban whimsy. The reps were wonderfully friendsly and helpful. The concierge recommended two restaurants for us to dine for the 2 evenings we were there. He did not disappoint. In fact, both restaurants, he made sure he got a complimentary appetizer. The beds were comfortable, clean with crisp linen. The bathroom is very clean and nice. There is a stack of minimalist style cabinets that separate the bedroom from the "grooming area" of the bathroom---plus an oversized floor mirror. The best part of their service is the wonderful idea of "a la cart"--metal carts on casters that carry different "themes" such as "computer and printer" to surf the net, games card, spa cart...etc. We availed of the computer cart and boy that was a great plus. (no added cost for this wonderful amenity) The breakfast that came with our reservations was more adequate than we expected. All in all, I would recommend this wonderful establishment anytime and hope that it doesn't change its pulse and wonderful friendly ambience.
Spent a birthday weekend in Seattle. We planned to stay near Pike Place, but could not see spending that much money when I stumbled upon TripAdvisor's reviews. Let's just say we are glad we did!
My son and I just returned from a 3-night stay at the Watertown. We were in Seattle to visit UW, and the hotel was perfectly located a few blocks from the University. We took advantage of many of the available services - the computer cart, the van, and the free bikes. The Burke-Gilman trail is a bike/jogging path that is also close to the hotel - we lucked out with some good weather and had a nice ride along the trail. The computer cart was great - we could surf the web about the places we were planning on visiting and the university. In addition to using the van, the hotel booked us a very reasonably priced towncar for transport to/from the airport. The Watertown is very new, clean, and has cool modern decor. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was fine - fresh fruit, yoghurt, baked goods, and cheerios. In the area, the Himalyan Restaurant and the Portage Bay Cafe (1 block away) were very good. We enjoyed Seattle and staying at the Watertown was a definite plus.
Stayed for 4 nights in mid-Feb 2004 at the Watertown in Seattle. Very impressed with the hotel itself and the "perks" or inclusions - for example, the computer cart with free broadband internet is very handy, and the free coffee 24 hours a day is great.
Just got back from 4 nights at the Watertown. Booked through Unitedand really was taking a bit of a risk, as the rate ($99/night, including breakfast) seemed quite inexpensive for a new hotel in Seattle. What a pleasant, great surprise! This place is chic (hip furnishings, art, textiles), yes - inexpensive, and full of those little touches that set a hotel apart from their competitors. By now you've probably read about the carts (we got a spa cart and a Valentine's cart - very cool), but there's also freshly-baked afternoon cookies, Aveda products in every room, and a cute wine bar attached. The breakfast is somewhat pedestrian, but definitely enough to start your day. And forget what you hear about the hotel being inconvenient. If you've rented a car you can get to Fremont, the University and even downtown Seattle really easily. PLUS the hotel has a free shuttle that runs hourly that will take you to a bunch of the sights. This place was the best find I've had in my travels in the last year. You'll love it!
Great place with perks galore
This place is great find! We stayed here for a couple of nights while there was work being done on our house, and couldn't be happier. When the type of room we requested wasn't available (due to an unexpected stayover), they were very accomodating. The customer service is top notch. The rooms are big and comfortable. And I love having free calls, free internet connection, free parking, free cookies, free shuttle to nearby attractions and to downtown, and free wine tasting.
Plus the greatest innovation we frequent travelers have seen in a long time - theme carts (spa cart, game cart, computer cart, art cart - you get the picture). One free cart per stay. Differenct and fun.
I'd recommend this place over any place downtown in a second.
The Watertown is an awesome find!
We did not know what to expect on a recent trip to Seattle. Our fist several choices for hotels were sold out, and Watertown had plenty of space. I mean, with this in mind how good could it be? Well, we won't be staying anbywhere else on future trips, that's how great we found this place to be. The service is amazing. Without exception, each and every staff member could not have been more helpful or freindly. The place is very clean, and the extras are outstanding! Aveda products standard in every room, complimentary wine tasting each afternoon, and the spa cart was wonderful! I would very highly recommend this property to anybody planning a trip to Seattle.
Loved the Spa cart, the free bike rentals, the great bike path nearby, the large rooms, and especially Flora, the friendly Shuttle bus driver.
Would definitely return to this hotel. Download a coupon from the Seattle Chamber of Commerce site to get a rate of $109! Can't be beat.
We stayed at the watertown feb 2003 and were very impressed. They have a lot of cool perks that go above and beyond what most hotels would offer. The decor is all brand new and very stylish (what Ikea wants to be), and all very pretty. Be sure to request one of the complimentary carts - we requested the "spa cart" and got a lot of enjoyment out of the bath salts and gadgets. You won't get a cart unless you request one. The complimentary "continental" breakfast includes some cool items like hard-boiled eggs and french toast. The gym is very small but the bicycle rentals were a lot of fun. Oh yeah, and instead of the usual vending machine, they have a little "store" at the front desk for middle of the night munchies, so you get to buy them from a real person and you don't have to worry about having the right change. Overall this was a very pleasurable experience. Would definitely recommend.
