Approximately 5 miles (8 kilometers) to the northwest of downtown Seattle, you'll find the neighborhood of Ballard.
If you're planning an adventure in Seattle and seeking iconic attractions, consider visiting the Space Needle and Pike Place Market. Additionally, keep in mind that the University of Washington is another great spot.
Ballard is a favored destination. From here you can go and experience the Woodland Park Zoo, a great Seattle destination.
If you and your travel group are on your way to Seattle, then why not consider staying in Ballard. There you can stay a short walk from the Discovery Park at the Hotel Ballard and Ballard Inn, or if you'd prefer you can find accommodation closer to the Woodland Park and Rose Garden at the Marco Polo Motel and Staybridge Suites Seattle - Fremont.
While Ballard contains some lodging options, you should also consider booking a place to stay in Pioneer Square and Seattle Waterfront. Have a look at our Seattle Waterfront hotels guide and Travelocity's Pioneer Square hotels guide.
