First, let me state I would stay there again. This was my second stay. The hotel is in a good location near the University. The room appointments are nice. The staff is most helpful. There is a Tully's coffee shop on the ground floor (no room coffee makers) so great coffee is readily available. The restaurant has a limited menu but it was well executed. Bar is first class with a good selection of northwest brews on tap. Good city views on one side and view of the 520 bridge on the other. I prefer the west facing city view as the morning sun can be a bit much. The only negatives I have found in two stays are related to the age of the hotel, which is also a major piece of its charm. The walls do not afford much sound deadening so you may hear a neighbor's toilet seat slamming or a person talking loud on a cell phone in the corridor or room doors slamming. The wifi access at least on my floor was very sketchy and slow. Like I say, I would stay there again.
This was a great find! I have no idea how this counts as a 2 or 3 star hotel! Great price and great comfort in the room. If I stay in seattle again I will stay here. PORTAGE BAY is the best breakfast place I have ever been to in WA. #EatLikeYouGiveADamn
With about 40,000 students, the University of Washington is the area's lifeblood. The campus includes a world-class medical center, the Burke Museum, and Henry Art Gallery. UW's main square offers a clear view of Mount Rainier. West of UW, a Lenin statue watches over Fremont, which bills itself as “The Center of the Universe.” Fremont's low-rise shops and cafés resemble Berkeley and Old New York.
