"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.

Luxury Hotel Options in Seattle

4 Star Average Prices: $239.79

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.

Budget Friendly Hotel Options in Seattle

3 Star Average Prices: $143.56

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.

Seattle: Real 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.

"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.
