"There is so much more to this phenomenal city than its rain!"
Author: , a Hotel Planner from , reviewed on 04-Nov-2013
Score of City:
5.0 / 5

When people think of Seattle, they immediately think of the rain. But, I'm here to tell you that there is so much more to this phenomenal city than its weather. First off, about the rain… I promise it is highly exaggerated. It never rains “every day”, even in the winter. And, when it does rain, it's usually a light, misty drizzle that does little more than keep the city clean and the vegetation lush. Besides, I think the 'slate grey skies' can be one of the city's most beautiful features. Seattleites may always be a little damp, but it's a fair trade for the gorgeous trees and flowers that dot the city. Plus, it truly is one of the cleanest, nicest cities I have ever been to, thanks in part to the regular showers. Summer there is incredible. Second, about the people… Seattleites have some of the most amazing creativity, ingenuity, and attention to detail I have seen. If you don't believe me, visit any of their public parks (I strongly recommend Gas Works Park, Discovery Park, or Volunteer Park), visit Seattle Center (home of the Space Needle and the EMP Museum), or just look at what they have done with their public library (a tourist attraction in itself!) The food is also unbeatable. They have amazing restaurants within every genre, but enjoying some seafood is a must, especially if you are a fan of salmon or oysters. Much like Manhattan or San Francisco, Seattle is a city of neighborhoods, each with their own completely unique vibe. So, after you have had your fill of the classic attractions (usually centered around the downtown area), make sure you leave some time to travel north to some of the 'weirder' areas, like Ballard and Freemont, perhaps for dinner. It will be like stepping into a different world, usually full of gorgeous brick buildings, amazing food, fantastic street art (try to find the Freemont troll!) and interesting looking people, with large beards and flannel. That stereotype, at least, is a true one.

When to Visit Seattle

You've probably heard that Seattle experiences quite a bit of rainfall, and for good reason. The city is no stranger to precipitation, but you can still enjoy yourself if you visit at the right time of year. Avoid the winter months because of the snow and frigid temperatures. Summers can offer excellent weather, but hotel rates can jump during this time, so steer clear if you're on a budget. Spring typically brings a higher chance of rain, though the weather is beautiful otherwise.

The best time to plan a vacation in Seattle is the fall, thanks to the beautiful weather and reduced hotel rates. Since tourism drops off near the end of summer, you'll experience fewer crowds and better access to lodging. Just remember that temperatures can fluctuate drastically from day to night, so bring plenty of warm clothing as well as a few lightweight items. Of course, you'll also want to bring an umbrella, or at least a good rain jacket.

Below is a chart of the current pricing seasonality of hotels and motels in Seattle, WA:

Luxury Hotel Options in Seattle

4 Star Average Prices: $225.53

When you want the best amenities and the most comfort at your Seattle hotel, you have plenty of luxury options. The Hyatt at Olive 8, for instance, offers beautiful guest rooms and suites with laminate wood floors, pillowtop beds, and gorgeous views through floor-to-ceiling windows. Located in the heart of the business district, the Hyatt at Olive 8 grounds you just two blocks from Puget Sound. You're not far from the Seattle Seahawks Stadium or the Pike Place Market, either, which makes planning your day far more efficient. When you're tired of running around, take advantage of the provided bathrobes, luxurious tubs, and premium cable television channels.

The Four Seasons Hotel Seattle is another upscale choice. You can choose a view of downtown or the water, depending on your preference, and the infinity pool is almost a work of art. Rooms feature minimalist design sensibilities with neutral colors, high-end materials, and Zen-inspired touches. The Four Seasons features an on-site spa if you want to enjoy a treatment and melt some of your stress away. Alternatively, you can stay in your room and sip a drink from the private bar or take a long bath in the soaking tub. Plus, if you don't have time to fit art galleries into your itinerary, you can enjoy the original artwork in your room. The entire hotel features decor by Northwest artists.

You might also consider the Crowne Plaza Seattle – Downtown. It offers both guest rooms and suites decorated with modern furnishings and decor. Sweeping views of the city will greet you every morning, and you're sure to get a good night's sleep on the Plush Sleep Advantage mattress. You can use your suite's dining nook to eat a quiet meal in your room when you're tired of the hustle and bustle of the city, or you can visit the on-site bar or restaurant for delicious fare. The Crowne Plaza is perfectly positioned for tourist activities, offering access to both nearby attractions and public transit.

4 Star Hotel Prices in Seattle

Budget Friendly Hotel Options in Seattle

3 Star Average Prices: $157.47

When you don't want to burn through your vacation budget on lodging, you can book your stay in one of Seattle's cheapest hotels. The Quality Inn Sea-Tac Airport, for instance, is close to the airport and offers low nightly rates. Not only will you save money on the room itself, but you'll also get a free continental breakfast every morning, free Wi-Fi, access to laundry services, and an in-room refrigerator. It's ideal for business travelers too, thanks to its fully equipped fitness center and generous conference space.

The La Hacienda Motel is another budget-friendly choice. It doesn't offer as many amenities as the pricier hotels, but you'll still get air conditioning, free toiletries, cable television, and access to the daily newspaper. You can also venture down to the lobby in the morning for a free continental breakfast. Toast, yogurt, fresh fruit, and cereal will provide you with enough energy to power you through your tourist activities. You'll enjoy a clean, quiet room, and the staff is available 24 hours per day if you have questions or need assistance.

The Seattle Pacific Hotel is also a good choice. It features spacious guest rooms with cable television, microwaves, refrigerators, and air conditioning. The two-double-bed rooms offer the best value, though the hotel offers double queen and king guest rooms as well. While there are no in-room safes, you can use one of the safe deposit boxes in the lobby at no extra charge, which comes in handy if you bring valuables that you don't want to carry around all day. Plus, you can grab a free cup of coffee or tea for the road.

Best Discounts

The advertised room rate isn't always the bottom line when you book a stay at a Seattle hotel. Consider, for instance, The Loyal Inn. It offers discounts starting at 10 percent for members of AAA, CAA, and AARP. All you have to do is indicate your membership when you book your room and bring your membership card when you check in. The Loyal Inn also offers discounts to government employees and military personnel. If you're a covered contractor or a state or federal government worker, you can present a work order or valid identification card to receive your discount. Employees of tax-funded hospitals are also eligible. The discount varies depending on your affiliation, so inquire at the hotel to learn your special rate.

You can also get special rates at the Homewood Suites by Hilton Seattle Downtown. It's a high-end hotel with gorgeous rooms and a wide range of amenities, but you can reduce your nightly rate if you're a AAA, AARP, or CAA member. The hotel also offers military and government rates as well as special deals, such as bed-and-breakfast packages and instant getaway deals. You can also save up to 20 percent if you book your reservation well in advance of your stay. Plus, Hilton HHonors members get additional discounts and loyalty rewards.

The Hampton Inn & Suites Seattle-Downtown is another HHonors hotel, which provides you with chances to build rewards points and snag better deals. You can save up to 15 percent if you book early at this hotel, and there are AAA and CAA discounts of up to 10 percent. The Military Family Rate provides savings of up to 15 percent, and senior citizens over the age of 55 can save 10 percent off their stay. Of course, you can also take advantage of seasonal promotions.

Best Value Options in Seattle

In Seattle, you can have your coffee and drink it too. Just because you're interested in a low nightly rate doesn't mean you have to skimp on amenities. Consider the La Quinta Inn & Suites Seattle Downtown, for instance. It's an affordable option that comes with free Wi-Fi, premium television, and Bright Morning pillowtop beds. You can also take advantage of the complimentary Bright Side breakfast, which offers waffles, pastries, bread, hot and cold cereal, orange juice, coffee, and other choices. There's also an on-site Bright Side Market as well as a business center, a gym, and laundry facilities. If you go with a suite, you'll get a refrigerator and microwave too.

The Inn at El Gaucho is another excellent choice if you're chasing deals. Billed as a "luxury urban inn," this hotel features luxurious furnishings that marry rich wood with premium leather and high-end linens. The hotel offers 17 distinct suites, each of which comes with L'Occitane toiletries and flat-screen televisions. You'll stay connected throughout your stay with free Wi-Fi in the suites and common areas, and bathrobes are found in each of the suites, so you can stay comfortable while you're in your room. The lobby, which is located on the second floor, features a coffee and tea station as well as seating if you need a place to relax. You won't want to leave without first enjoying a juicy steak and baked potato at the El Gaucho restaurant.

Where to Get Coffee in Seattle

If you're a coffee lover, you might have planned a vacation to the Emerald City just to sample the local java. You're not alone. Seattle is known for its delicious coffee, and there's no better place to start than Empire Espresso. You'll walk away with a jolt of energy as well as good vibes from the friendly, eclectic atmosphere.

There are Starbucks locations scattered throughout the city if you're in the mood for a familiar venue, but independent shops are also prevalent. Seattle Coffee Works, Analog Coffee, and Caffe Ladro are all excellent choices.

Seattle, WA summarized

Although its proximity to Puget Sound may be Seattle's greatest asset, Washington's pride has some of the Olympic Peninsula's most beautiful stepping stones, lush vegetations, rainforests, rustic beaches, sprawling prairies, and expansive island - as its background, at least. Seattle is Washington's modern oasis. Its engaging clubs, good restaurants, fun coffeehouses, and glass skyscrapers provide a striking contrast against Mount Rainier's snowy peak. The city gained momentum after a century-old Gold Rush, making it a capital for both commerce and transport. In fact, the rustic setting is home to the world's most famous companies, Amazon, Starbucks, Microsoft, and Boeing. The list of industries is proof that Seattle need not capitalize on tourism, but visitors just keep on growing. Visitors head through the Seattle Art Museum, shop at the Pike Place Market, ride a ferry from Pionner Square, and see the Space Needle at the Seattle Center. If Capitol Hill's nightlife fails to take you on a high, head to the Museum of Flight or Boeing Tour Center, and try to join the flight line.

'Man has gained nothing from enmity. Our purpose here is not to fight, but to cooperate with each other and move forward. Finding solutions is my job, but I shouldn't stop there. I should make them real, make them useful.
Bill Gates, one of the most influential men of the 20th century, needs no introduction. He has been responsible for founding Microsoft “ the company that made it possible for millions of people to use computers “ in Seattle, and has lived here ever since. A noted philanthropist and a man of calm, composed demeanour, he has been an inspiration to many. In that sense, he can be a definitive image of Seattle “ a city that thrives on cooperation, brotherhood and innovation.

Seattle is also known as the Rain City of America because of the unusually consistent rainfalls it experiences all around the year, making its weather resemble typically overcast September days in England. 

Among many other things, Seattle is a home to many multi-billion dollar companies that rule the corporate world (Amazon, for example) and many more places of interest, especially for those who take an active interest in outdoor activities. Located on the North Western coast of the United States, Seattle also happens to be an important trading post blessed with many naturally efficient port venues. 

 A trip to Seattle can be a memorable one if you manage to distribute your time between various sights and sounds of Seattle with ease and efficiency. Lodging is an important aspect of this endeavor, and that is precisely why, this nifty guide to various types of Seattle hotels should come handy for tourists who are probing the possibilities of a trip to Seattle. 

Budget Hotels in Seattle 

Seattle is the capital of the State of Washington. Being a capital city, it regularly hosts travelers and tourists whose purposes of visit range from business to leisure. 

There are over 500 various registered hospitality venues in Seattle, most of whom are dedicated to hosting tourists. Annual tourist footfall in Seattle easily exceeds 1 million mark. In 2014, a record breaking throng of over 2 million tourists busied the streets of Seattle, as favorable weather conditions attracted many more to local festivals and sights. 

To house these many tourists and travelers, Seattle offers a number of cheap hotels that are easy on the credit cards of tourists. Avid tourists would agree that saving on hotel and accommodation expenses can easily cut down tour costs by as much as 40%. So, it does not come as a shock that more than half of all the hotels in Seattle are categorized under ˜budget' segment. 

Ramada Sea Tac Hotel, near the airport, is a perfect candidate for tourists who are looking for cheap hotels that are also conveniently accessible and decently comfortable. 

Hotel Red Roof Inn is another similar hotel, located near the Seattle City Center. Hotel Nexus Seattle can provide good comfort to tourists, especially backpackers. If you are traveling with family, University Inn Seattle can also provide you a great deal, although it's slightly more expensive than other establishments in this category. 

Extravagance and Style “ Combined! 

Luxury resorts offer a great peace of mind to travelers, as they try to unwind from their daily stresses and sightseeing fatigue. It should also provide some relief to travelers to know that such hotels in Seattle are quite reasonably priced, as opposed to their counterparts in major cities like LA or Miami. 

Inn at the Market is among the best reputable luxury establishments in Seattle. Located in the heart of the city, Inn at the Market offers unparalleled levels of luxury and comfort to its patrons, albeit with hefty price tags.  

Hotel 1000 and Four Seasons Hotel Seattle also rise up to the occasion and provide excellent service and hospitality to their guests, inclusive of all amenities you could think of “ from in-house ballrooms to rooftop swimming pools

Independent & Boutique Hotels in Seattle 

There is a certain type of tourists who just don't get taken by the idea of living at a hotel for long periods of time. For the sake of such tourists, Seattle brings a number of alternative options.

The most popular alternative lodging option in Seattle has to be that of holiday rentals. If you are visiting Seattle on holiday with a family, this could well be just the sort of accommodation you are looking for. 

However, it should be understood that most of these options come with even heavier price tags than luxury resorts. Seattle Urban Retreat is a fine example of this. 

Hotels Near Seattle Airport 

Seattle is serviced by the Seattle Tacoma International Airport that lies about 20 km south of the city center. The airport, in an administrative sense, lies within the city limits of SeaTac, but is the only point of entry for travelers to get into Seattle by air. 

Considering the distance, many tourists are tempted to find a hotel in the vicinity of this airport, perhaps in SeaTac itself. There are quite a few Seattle hotels that can be found along the road that connects the airport to the city. But most of these are usually budget motels, more often than not unfit to host families. So, it shouldn't be a big deal for you to drive all the way up to the city center and find a decent enough hotel within your budget there. Booking a hotel well in advance online can allow you to exploit early bird discounts, as well! 

Local Transportation in Seattle 

Being a city of well laid out infrastructure, Seattle boasts of a very well connected public transport that includes trains and buses. 

Getting around Seattle should not really be a problem for tourists, as many local taxi and cab services have fairly priced sightseeing packages that can be easily customised to one's liking. Renting a car can be a great option, too, if you happen to have a valid driving permit. Your stay in Seattle will be immensely enjoyable if you plan it out thoroughly, well in advance. 

The Emerald City will certainly never disappoint tourists with good tastes!

Hotel room booking by a very nice agent. We like the fact that it was very easy to catch the Light Rail from the airport to our hotel for $3/person. It was very clean and safe. We were able to enjoy the scenery as we traveled. We enjoyed taking advantage of the city pass for most of the attractions near and around the Space Needle, and everything we did was within walking distance or a short uber/lyft ride. We truly enjoyed going to the Space needle in the morning and evening. We did learn about Seattle on the harbor tour and the Underground tour we took. There were more homeless people than anticipated, but we were not bothered by them everywhere we went. We enjoyed ourselves and all Seattle had to offer for a quick trip.

Our experience was terrific. They were amazing about keeping breakfast stocked with 150 of us trying to eat in their tiny breakfast nook at once. The only issue was that their system was unnecessarily onerous and clumsy for checking in a big group. Otherwise, very flexible with last minute requests. Thanks!

Seattle used to be a beautiful clean city. You felt safe there. In the last 4 years we have seen the deterioration of the city. The sidewalks are dirty, there are homeless remains, and signs of a lack of order. It makes us sad to see a once beautiful city fall into this.

There is always so much to see and do in Seattle, both in the city and in the outlying mountains, waters, and towns! In the summer, the weather in Seattle can't be beat. My wedding guests, many who were first-time Seattle visitors, could not stop raving about the views, the waterfront, the food, and the nice people!

"Meetings in Seattle"
Score 5.0 / 5

From gorgeous hotels to wine focused restaurants, to simple coffee houses, this city accommodates a diverse mix of business sectors. Seattle is home to some of the world's most respected companies and organizations and is the perfect place for any meeting. Walking the city is the best form of transportation with meeting spaces, restaurants, shopping, hotels and anything you need right at your fingertips. Another option is Seattle International Airport. Sea Tac Conference Center has 8,220 square feet of meeting space within the airport, including an auditorium and individual rooms which can be combined for larger spaces. As budgets and time constraints sometimes shrink, getting to hotels takes up time with many people left watching the clock to catch flights. Seattle has addressed that issue and minimized the travel logistics for many. Last but not least, these views never get old.

Took a private city sightseeing tour with a step-on guide, had lunch at the Sky City Restaurant high atop the Space Needle, and visited the Chihuly Glass Exhibit and the Native American Indian Exhibit at the Seattle Art Museum. Fran's chocolate store was a delightful place to visit as well. The Underground Seattle Tour was a little disappointing though we had to have a shortened tour and Patti, the guide was great.

Seattle's a great city (we live here), but it is pricey, especially for those visiting from out of town who rely on restaurants for each meal. The food is incredible, but it will challenge your budget.

I didn't like much. Tons of traffic, people, narrow streets, parking lots, and rain. They use every inch of land to jam buildings and parking lots on. People didn't seem very friendly. Had to go for business and I live in a small town where there is a more relaxed atmosphere.

The only negative comments were regarding the construction mess around the hotel. All other comments were very complimentary about Seattle as a tourist destination. Would they do it again? Most definitely!!
