Hotels In Seattle

Most likely you frequently travel through Seattle on your way to and from Anchorage.  Alaska Airlines is based out of SeaTac airport and offers the most air routes throughout Alaska.  If you’re considering a long layover in the Emerald City then this guide to hotels in Seattle is a great tool to help you plan your next stay.

As a city composed of small neighborhoods, there are many hotels in Seattle neighborhoods, ranging from luxury hotels like the Four Season in glitzy downtown Seattle, to quaint hotels like the College Inn in the University District, you are sure to find one that pleases your style and fits your budget.

Aside from the typical chain hotels that you might expect nationally, such as Comfort Suites, Travelodge, and Holiday Inn, here are some distinct hotels in Seattle. The Inn At El Gaucho is located in the Belltown neighborhood of Seattle, within one-mile walking distance from the Space Needle and historic Pike Place Market. Some rooms afford you the beautiful view of Elliott Bay and the magnificent Olympic Mountains.

Of course, speaking of the Pike Place Market, few other hotels in Seattle can compete with the superb location of Inn At The Market, a hotel recognized by Travel + Leisure and Conde Nast for its Pacific Northwest style and comfort, a great combination of a tranquil hideaway that’s only steps away from the vibrant, bustling and exciting scene of the Public Market.

If you want the absolute best views in the city then you should consider Seavista, a luxury penthouse rental perched high above Pike Place Market. It’s nice to have a full kitchen at your disposal when you are so close to the market.

Staying in downtown Seattle, you may also consider the Mayflower Park Hotel, opened in 1927, is the oldest continuously operating hotel in downtown Seattle, and is part of the historic hotels of America. The hotel is centrally located by many major bus lines and shopping centers, notably Westlake Center, where you can hop on the Monorail to the Seattle Center, the Space Needle, and the Experience Music Project.

The Seattle Center is at the base of a neighborhood that we whole heartedly recommend you checking out: Queen Anne Hill, just a short distance north of downtown Seattle. With an elevation of 456 feet and being the highest hill in Seattle, Queen Anne will give you spectacular sweeping view of the city. Mid way through Queen Anne Avenue North is Kerry Park, where you can enjoy a panoramic view of the Seattle skyline. While here, you can consider Inn at Queen Anne, a stone’s throw from the Seattle Center and the meeting place of the ridiculously fun From Land to Sea Ride the Ducks Tour of Seattle.

Two of the oldest hotels in Seattle are the Fairmont hotel and the Sorrento Hotel. The Fairmont Olympic Hotel opened in 1924, and is the Pacific Northwest’s only AAA Five Diamond hotel. As with other downtown hotels, it is steps away from restaurants, theaters, shops, and notably two blocks away from Benaroya Hall.

The Sorrento opened in 1909 with a European style architecture, elegant rooms and suites, and impeccable accommodation, it’s been named the top 25 hotels in the United States. Just a bit further away from the Seattle downtown core, Sorrento hotel is a mere block away from St. James Cathedral, Frye Art Museum, with Broadway Avenue and Capitol Hill five blocks to the east and the world-famous Seattle Central Public Library five blocks to the west.

Heading towards the historic Pioneer Square neighborhood is the Arctic Club Hotel, just recently lavishly renovated to restore the architectural grandeur feel of the early 1900s and. Though owned by Doubletree, it’s a historic hotel, originally used by those who struck it big during the Klondike Gold Rush.
