Historical Traveller Reviews of Hotel Deca Seattle

Wow! Wow! Wow!

from A TripAdvisor Member
Wow!!!!! A great hotel at a really reasonable price and very convenient to the University of Washington. I stayed here for two nights during a conference at the end of January 2005 and spent $79 per night for one of their studio rooms. Everywhere was neat and clean and looked like it had been recently renovated. While the studio room was on the small side, it was plenty big enough for what I needed. Double bed, desk, two drawer dresser, tv, huge walk in closet, iron, ironing board and nice large windows. The only complaint was that the bathroom was small and that
made it tough to close the door (no clearance between the door and toilet). Continental breakfast was very nice with yogurt, cold cereals, instant oatmeal, bagels, english muffins, danishes, muffins, fruit, hard boiled eggs and beverages. Free internet access in the lobby and business center with free Wi-Fi in the lobby and lots of comfy couches and chairs in the lobby Fitness center and bar/restaurant in the basement. Front desk staff were all very friendly and helpful and were able to give lots of advice on local restaurants. Definitely a great value and right next to the University of Washington.

close to university and lovely

from saguarocactus
was there in Feb 2004- lovely room, fashionably refurbished. Nice breakfast buffet, above average. We were told of the free 30 minute Internet access- no surprises because we asked about it at the desk. We also booked via the Web- had no problems there either. Extremely convenient location if visiting the university- good parking lot too.


from Museecho
This hotel is outstanding for the price. I paid around 100$ for a King room and the pictures on the website for this hotel do not lie, the rooms are beautiful and modern. The lobby is gorgeous. No feelings about the hotel not being clean enough. However the bathrooms are average, but truly a bargain.

Booking a room at the University Tower Hotel I was bracing myself for the standard two-star Best Western experience. I was pleasantly surprised, however, to find little reminiscent of a Best Western property at this location. From its art deco lobby, with its colorful jazz-themed murals, to its well designed and ferociously clean rooms, this hotel approached four star quality. The continental breakfast was rich in variety, though a little tricky to locate in the deepest recesses of ‘B’ level. There are two free Internet kiosks in the lobby – handy for checking e-mail and printing airline boarding passes when returning to the airport. And the walk to bustling University Way made for a nice evening diversion. (Grab a drink at Flowers, a remodeled and repurposed nursery, pet the impossibly fat resident cats at Twice Read Tales, or order a taco and a kayak at Agua Verde at the lake end of University Way.)

University Tower is definitely a good choice if you have business at or near the U of W. If you are in Seattle to take in the downtown tourist sights, however, this property is not the best choice. While the 71, 72, and 73 buses will get you there in about 30 minutes for a mere $1.50 they can drop you off in some fairly shady neighborhoods. Better to just pick a hotel closer to the city center. University Tower is also not very close to the airport - $40 by cab or $19 for Shuttle Express that only runs on the hour and seems to stop at every hotel along the way.

Ok Hotel, but beware of "FREE DAILUP INTERNET"

Not free, but 10 cents a minute after 1st half hour.
It's advertised as free, but you might get a nasty surprise on your bill when you check out.

Not impressed!

Excellent Hotel Value

from caldonna61
Stayed at the Best Western University Tower Sept 22-Sept. 26 and enjoyed every night there. The staff was very friendly, view was phenomenal (saw the Olympic Mtn. range and if I looked to my left, the Space Needle) and rooms and service were first rate. The location couldn't be better. Seattle's bus system is easy to navigate and the 71, 72 or 73 bus on University Ave (one block from hotel) takes you directly into Downtown Seattle. I had a studio and there was more than enough space for me and my suitcase. The hotel is big on recycling (as is the entire city of Seattle) so be prepared to sleep on the same sheets and use the same towels if you plan on staying more than 3 days (it's not mandatory, but sure is eco-friendly). University Avenue has tons of great little restaurants (Alladin Gyros were great for midnight snacks!) and a slamming tattoo shop (Laughing Buddha; ask for Rain). Will definitely stay here when I return to the Seattle area.

t use their website

from A TripAdvisor Member
I loved this hotel, one word of advice...don't use their website to book the hotel-speak to someone in person. They have problems with the website and when we arrived they had no record of us. To make it up to us they put us in a suite on the top floor for a small charge. The staff are friendly and helpful. The decor is beautiful. The lounge downstairs is reasonably priced with great food and live jazz music. If you get a chance to book the suite do so. Big bathroom, huge tub and shower, fireplace, wide screen tv, huge balcony.
Great place to stay!

great experience

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed at the University Tower after reading the reviews here. It was even better than expected. Fabulously decorated and comfortable room, spotlessly clean, great continental breakfast buffet. Loved the location. Had planned to move to a hotel downtown later in our stay, but liked this area and hotel so much, we just stayed. I highly recommend!

Great hotel, great location

from chris mccall
I had a very enjoyable six night stay in this pleasant and relaxing hotel. As a single traveler I stayed in one of the hotel's single studio rooms. The room was spacious with a good sized bathroom and plenty of storage space. The double bed was very comfortable. The room was kept very clean and the hotel was really quiet. The staff were pleasant and helpful and the complimentary continental breakfast offered a wide choice. The University District of Seattle offers a vast range of shopping, eating and drinking experiences but if downtown is your thing, the frequent and very cheap Metro buses will soon get you there. Yellow cabs also seemed to be readily available. The hotel is non-smoking; $250 fine if you do! I'll stay again.

Good Hotel....Not much life in it....

from vegasORbust
We stayed on July 25th (which is a Sunday). If you stay there on a Sunday, restaurant/lounge (The District) is not open. That left us having to drive somewhere else to eat. The view is fantastic. The room was clean. Not much of a bathroom. No vanity to speak of. Big walk in closet to hang clothes up. Overall, it was a fancy hotel, but nothing to do while in it. Also no POOL!!!

Top Local Tips for Seattle

Watertown Hotel a far far better deal skip the Deca; go to the Watertown nearby; it's great and has great customer service

Chandler's Crabhouse Expensive but well worth it for a special evening.

Shop the University Village area for deals In a state where the sales tax is 8.2 percent, the area around the University of Washington is a good place to find deals on charming gift items and used clothing, books, and CDs. For used clothing, check out the Buffalo Exchange, which specializes in vintage and pop culture items. There are no end to the used book shops around this area, but if you want an interesting selection of academic and local-interest books, the University Bookstore carries a huge selection as well as many great gift items featuring local crafts and the Husky Shop (go purple and white). (Hint: if you forgot your favorite Clinique product at home, the bookstore also has a little Clinique counter. It seems out of place in patchouli and tie-dye land, but I was happy to find my favorite moisturizer there.) There is also an awesome little CD and vinyl record store called the Cellophane Square which carries primarily rock and indie albums. The used CDs go for $9, and the ones I bought were like new.
