4 star hotel
Area: Central Business District
0.48 mi from Waterfall Garden Park
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: Most views are obstructed by surrounding buildings; however, rooms facing Spring St. may offer a better view.
Best Rooms: Rooms ending in *07, *10 and *11 on floors 9 - 10 (e.g. 907, 1011), as well as rooms ending in *10 and *11 on floors 11 - 12 offer distant views of the Space Needle.
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.
