The hotel was clean. This is most important to us. They also follow covid 19 policies ordered by the State. We think the "grab and go" breakfast is a clever way to still accommodate their guests. The room price was very reasonable too.

Explore Seattle: Highlights of the Emerald City

From the vibrant heart of the city to the lush green parks and forests that surround it, Seattle will leave you wanting more. If you’re in town, here are a few destinations we recommend.

Downtown Seattle

For a one-stop-shop experience of the Pacific northwest city, you can’t go far wrong with Downtown Seattle. As you navigate your way around its sparkling glass skyscrapers, grab a bite of your choice at the historic Pike Place Market, head to the Pier 57 for scenic views and the iconic Seattle Great Wheel, and catch a musical at the 5th Avenue Theatre.

West Seattle

Step into West Seattle, and it’s is almost like you’ve entered into an altogether different world. The city’s largest neighborhood has more in common with a beach town than a metropolis, with Alki Beach Park one of the main attractions. Beyond that, you’ve got West Seattle Junction for shoppers and Lincoln Park for lazy afternoons.

Mount Rainer National Park

If you’re keen on experiencing more of a road trip, then make some time for Mount Rainier National Park, located to the southeast of Seattle. Whatever time of year you visit, this expansive area of natural beauty guarantees plenty, from the grandeur of the epic mountain to quiet of the Wonderland Trail.
