Hotels in Washington

The 84 rooms are subtly done in salvaged timber and antique slate, and outfitted with Frette linens, fireplaces, and giant Jacuzzis for two. The Burke Gilman Trail beckons cyclists to feel the wind in their hair. A full-service spa offers lengthy massages.

Uptown amenities converge with small-town views at the Hilton Vancouver Washington, located on the banks of the Columbia River. Completed in 2005, the hotel occupies a lush riverside location eight miles north of Portland, OR, in the historic town of Vancouver, WA.

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).

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

With its self-consciously hearty, rustic interiors—all log and pine furniture, checks and tartans, river stones and slate—the Edgewater takes the Pacific Northwest-lodge motif to the nth degree.

There are no TV’s or phones to distract from the idyllic views. Rooms in the converted 1916 tavern and Roosevelt cottages feel the most authentic, thanks to rustic birch furniture and pine-lined walls.

The light-filled country-chic cottages at this farmstead have full kitchens and are secluded by 35 acres of gardens.

These cottages are no longer rental units, but are for sale.

The hotel, partly occupying a sparkling new tower, has a small pool and a day spa.

Book the “Colonel Bob,” with two bedrooms and a wraparound porch.

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.

Seattleites seeking urban respite head eight miles west and across Lake Washington to Bellevue. Despite the hotel’s easy access to I-405, it’s hidden away on a quiet side street in a residential neighborhood.

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

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).
