Youthful and cosmopolitan, Seattle-area hotels are reflections of the residents, providing travelers with stylish options in affordable price ranges. From the grand, downtown, Euro-styled hotels to the eclectic boutique inns and national chain options, Seattle’s hotel menu includes waterfront views, mountain ranges, cultural highlights, shopping, and culinary capstones.
The South Lake Union area, with its attraction to bright shiny things like the fabulous new streetcar system, is bustling with businesses, heavy on biotech, and home to Amazon. With a sharp focus on sustainability and a connected, central location close to nearly everything the city has to offer, it is a prime choice for a hotel stay in Seattle. Historic Queen Anne Hill to the west and professionally focused Capitol Hill to the east both nudge up against downtown, making a hotel stay in either a convenient choice for visiting the Public Market, the Space Needle, the University of Washington, and other central business district points of interest.
Additional downtown Seattle neighborhoods along the waterfront, in Pioneer Square, Belltown, and the retail core are good choices for those seeking urban pursuits. From the epitome of five-star luxury, both historic and modern, to the affordable national chain options, the urban core of Seattle is thoroughly networked with public transit. King County Water Taxi, Sound Transit, Central Link Light Rail, Seattle Center Monorail, and South Lake Union Streetcar take visitors within footsteps of sports, shopping, cultural, business, and recreation destinations.
Beautiful secluded options on the Olympic Peninsula, like Port Townsend or Port Angeles, yield access to Puget Sound, while locations to the east toward Redmond provide majestic views of the Cascade Mountains.
