Seattle is the largest city in Washington State, popular for its festivals, such as the 24-day Seattle International Film Festival, museums and nature trails. It’s also famous for being the home of 90’s music phenomenon, Grunge and the legendary rock band, Nirvana. If the allure of a metropolis attracts you, but you want the opportunity to escape to wild and unspoilt nature, then Seattle is the place for you. Seattle is a real big city with a small town feel; it has impressive skyscrapers and a lively street scene, but also natural beauty in the form of Puget Sound, Elliott Bay, Lake Washington, and the Olympic Mountains nearby. So many reasons to enjoy a hotel in this diverse city.
Downtown Seattle is the most densely populated part of the city, but with people comes most of the attractions. The Space Needle is a popular site not to be missed; standing 184 meters it provides incredible views over the city. The Olympic Sculpture Park provides guests with free sculpture exhibitions, along with a beach. Then there’s the Seattle Great Wheel, which is over 50 meters high.
Grab yourself a room in Downtown Seattle. Hotels in the city centre provide guests with a number of added extras, such as free WiFi, air conditioning and even gyms in some cases. At Pioneer Square you’ll find luxurious hotels with indoor swimming pool, on-site restaurant and flat-screen TVs in the rooms.
Seattle is a great location to get close to get out into the great outdoors. Book a hotel in or close to nature, from where you can hike, bike and go rock climbing, and where you can also enjoy winter or water sports, depending on the weather. North of downtown, adjacent to the immense South Lake Union Park, is a top place to stay if you want to get out into nature. Follow nature trails around the lake or take a boat out on the water.
If you’re looking for something budget then why not stay in one of the neighbouring neighbourhoods, like Bellevue, Bothell, Lynwood, Redmond, Issaquah or Woodinville, where the price of a hotel is significantly lower. You’ll also find plenty of deals around the airport, Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA), offering direct connections to the city via the airport shuttle. Alternatively, you can stay in one of the hostels or three star hotels located in the city centre.
