4 star hotel
Area: Pioneer Square
0.64 mi from city center
Best Rooms: If you're looking for a nice view, your best bet is to request a room on floor 10. Some rooms will have views of Mt. Rainier or the Space Needle.
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.
Best Rooms: Due to the hotel's location and the fact that it's only 4 stories high, your views will consist mostly of a neighboring park or other buildings.
3.5 star hotel
Area: Central Business District
0.41 mi from city center
Best Rooms: Rooms facing west have views of the water; rooms facing north offer views of the Space Needle; and rooms facing south have views of the highway, with the mountains in the background.
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.
Best Rooms: The best views from the hotel are found from the Water View and Deluxe Water View rooms on floors 7 - 8. All rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows.
