3 star hotel 454 reviews
Area: South-Lake Union
0.67 mi from city center
Best Rooms: The hotel offers an unobstructed view of the Space Needle from rooms on floors 2 - 5 facing west.
Best Rooms: The hotel doesn't offer views of the Space Needle anymore, as another hotel now stands in the way. The views available are similar throughout; no one area is nicer than another.
3 star hotel 412 reviews
0.55 mi from city center
Best Rooms: The hotel has limited views because it's boxed in by other buildings. That said, rooms facing Court Place on floor 8 and higher have the best views of the surrounding area.
Best Rooms: The hotel offers five Deluxe Queen rooms at the back of the hotel, which offer water views.
Best Rooms: For great views of the iconic Space Needle, consider the *09 rooms on floors 19 - 24 (e.g. 1909, 2309). The *07 rooms on floors 19 - 26 (e.g. 1907, 2207, 2607) also offer wonderful Space Needle views. On a clear day, the *20 rooms on floors 18 - 24 offer views of Mt. Rainier, as well as partial views of Puget Sound. If a view is important to you, you may want to consider booking a room other than the ones numbered *10, on floors 4 - 12 (e.g. 410, 910, 1110).
Best Rooms: Most rooms don't have an expansive view because of the surrounding buildings. Floor 20 is the highest floor and has the best views, facing north.
Best Rooms: All rooms offer city views, but to minimize obstruction from tall buildings nearby, request a room overlooking the Green Roof side of the building, above at least floor 9.
