Hotels in Seattle

Adjacent to the Washington State Convention Center, the 425-room, Grand Hyatt is a big hotel that flaunts a number of boutique-hotel flourishes (like Marble-clad, four-piece baths feature shower enclosures and deep, soaker tubs).

Set farther north than the city’s other downtown hotels, this glittering high-rise is separate from the madding crowd (although that’s temporary—a burgeoning gateway district is fast sprouting around it).

Set on Carillon Point overlooking Lake Washington, this 100-room property is a popular wedding and weekend getaway destination. It’s also a frequent home base for business travelers working at nearby Microsoft Redmond Campus.

This B&B has water views and a bright, unfussy decor.

The Hotel Vintage Park honors the Washington wine country by dedicating each room to a local winery and vineyard. Warm merlot hues and light golden chardonnay tones highlight the fabrics and accent the furniture in the 11-story boutique hotel.

Like a moneyed earth mother who trolls Whole Foods for overpriced organics, this 189-room hotel strikes an odd balance between simple elegance and conspicuous glitziness.

Chic and cheap, this 28-room hotel draws visiting designers and musicians, along with bargain-hunting hipsters. Rooms are spare, but have appealing, artist’s-loft details—hardwood floors, exposed white-painted brick walls, antique steam radiators, and tongue-in-cheek street art selections.

Decked out in cabbage-rose–patterned wallpaper and wicker chairs, the seven preppy-chic bungalows conjure a posh, grown-up summer camp—complete with croquet courts and horseshoe pit.

The ornate B&B in a converted Victorian mansion is a great alternative to downtown's boring business hotels.

This hillside Victorian bed and breakfast, built in 1889, has spectacular views of Puget Sound and Commencement Bay. Surrounded by 100-plus-year-old native cherry trees, it’s within easy distance of downtown and just 30 minutes south of Seattle.

The cool, Old Havana style of this boutique hotel might tempt you to light up a cigar (even though it, like all Seattle hotels, is nonsmoking).

It’s easy to get distracted by all the high-tech amenities at the 1000—along with iPod docking stations, Wi-Fi, and personally programmed sensors that control everything from climate to mood lighting in each of the 120 rooms, the hotel also boasts an ingenious (or useless, depending on your POV)

Set on Carillon Point overlooking Lake Washington, this 100-room property is a popular wedding and weekend getaway destination. It’s also a frequent home base for business travelers working at nearby Microsoft Redmond Campus.

On the waterfront, the hotel has 15 tastefully decorated rooms named for historic ships that plied the local seas. Some have gas fireplaces and private balconies.

The Marriott is an eight-story property with rooms on the downtown waterfront, directly across from the Seattle Cruise Terminal (Pier 66) where ships bound for Alaska dock.
