3 star hotel
Area: South-Lake Union
1.23 mi from Kerry Park
Best Rooms: Rooms ending in *01 - *11, on floor 5 – 7 (e.g. 501, 711), have unobstructed views of the lake.
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: Some rooms have balconies, but there aren't any direct views of anything grand to ejoy.
Best Rooms: Corner rooms ending in *07 (e.g. 507, 607), from floors 5 and up, offer particularly good views of the Space Needle; rooms ending in *04 - *06 (e.g. 604, 706) also offer Space Needle views.
Best Rooms: Corner suites have views in two directions, but the "first-come, first-serve" policy and frequent requests can make them a bit difficult to get. View King rooms give a great look at the Puget Sound -- if you're willing to dish out a little extra. The Emerald Suites, overlooking 7th Avenue and Pine Street (rooms 2722, 2822, 2922, 3022), provide the best views of the Space Needle and Puget Sound. For water views, you may need to go higher than floor 16.
