Hotels in Washington

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.

Set on 3,000 acres, the hotel attracts active-minded guests and has 40 miles of trails best explored by guided horseback. The lodge staff can also arrange sporting activities from fly-fishing to snowshoeing.

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

You don’t have to love art galleries, vintage-boutique shopping, or indie-rock concerts to enjoy staying at the Max—but it sure helps.

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.

Incredible Elliott Bay and Puget Sound vistas are the draw at this 70-room hotel (which, yes, sits right next to the famous Pike Place Market). The best way to enjoy them: sipping coffee or a cocktail from a teak lounge chair on the fifth-floor deck.

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

Unveiled in 2006, this Belltown boutique hotel is housed in the extensively renovated site of a circa-1940’s Women’s Army Corps transfer station. The building itself was built in the 1920s to house efficiency apartments but has since been updated with locally sourced timber and stone accents.

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

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.

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.
