My friend and I spent the night here on New Years. The two gentlemen at the reception desk were welcoming and helpful when checking in. We were told there was a shuttle but it wouldn't take us as far as we wanted to go, so they called a cab for us so we could head to the Space Needle for...

Very friendly, helpful staff - not snooty by any means - and clean, functional rooms with nice cushy bedding. Price for room and parking was a little steep. That's not really the hotel's fault though. I really appreciated the guidance regarding shuttles to and from UWMC. Parking was secure and right next to the building.

Stayed a night for a UW campus visit (it was within easy walking distance), and chose this hotel so that I did not have to worry about campus parking. Room a bit small but comfortable and quiet despite being next to a couple of busy streets. Very nice snacks in the lobby and friendly staff.

It also appeared that there were guests at the hotel who were staying there because of its' proximity to the UW medical facilities. There are lots of restaurants and shopping opportunities nearby. The hotel DOES NOT have free parking but...
