Convenience and character are the two qualities that define accommodations in Seattle, which range from historic hotels in relaxed Queen Anne, to trendy locations in the University District. Whether you are seeking amenities close to downtown attractions or a room in the airport area for that overnight business stopover, accommodations are almost as easy to find in Seattle as things to do.
Many of the city's upscale hotels and inns are located in restored historic buildings and careful attention has been taken to capture the personality and ambiance of the area. Well-appointed furnishings, boutique-style settings and attractive vistas are hallmarks of Seattle hotels and inns.
Seattle's picturesque University District with its quaint settings and Lake Union proximity has long been a favorite location for business travelers and vacationers alike. The U District is known for its wide selection of restaurants and espresso bars and is an easy drive (or bus ride) to downtown attractions and kayaking locations.
Downtown offers a variety of accommodations from budget motels to bed and breakfast inns. Some accommodations in the Queen Anne area offer panoramic views of the Space Needle, downtown and surrounding areas.
North Seattle has the advantage of being close to the University of Washington, Shoreline and North Seattle's growing business area. It's also within easy access of I-5, for northbound commuters heading to Bellingham and Vancouver, British Columbia. Accommodations range from state-of-the-art executive hotels with conference facilities to historic boutique inns designed for vacation stays.
The Airport District, while located outside of Seattle's centralized area, is often convenient for business and short-stay travelers. Many hotels cater to conference attendees, as well as southbound drivers en route to Portland, California and other locations.
