Best Rooms: The hotel is surrounded by the buildings, you won't find much in the way of views.
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: Lake View rooms on higher floors have the best views. City View rooms are also available, but the only City View rooms with actual views are the ones facing Aloha Street -- on higher floors.
Best Rooms: The Waterfront rooms provide the best views of Elliott Bay, especially from higher floors. If you book a Elliot Bay View room, be sure to request one that's looking straight at the bay, because there are many rooms in this category that don't actually provide a good view of the bay.
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: The best views from the hotel are from the rooms facing Pine Street. Most have two queen beds, although there are a few with king beds.
