If you’re a AAA member, don’t forget to ask about discounts, as some of the finest hotels in Seattle offer great AAA discounts. Book a hotel downtown and enjoy the added perk of being in walking distance from must-see attractions like Pike Place Market and the Seattle Waterfront. At the end of the day, you can splurge on some delicious local seafood or a cocktail at the Edgwater Hotel and revel in the spectacular view of the Puget Sound.
Best Rooms: Floor 1 is almost at water level, and floor 4 is the top floor, with the best water views. Full-view rooms ending in *50 and higher (e.g. 352, 356, 454) have the best views of Elliott Bay.
Best Rooms: All views from the hotel are city 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).
