Seattle Downtown Hotels – Tips and Recommendations

  • Pike Place Market is the heart of downtown Seattle. In general, the closer your hotel is to Pike Place the better located you are.
  • The best shopping is northeast of the market. This is where you’ll find Pacific Place Mall and most of the boutique and luxury chain stores.
  • There are many trendy clubs and top notch restaurants both in the market and in the half-dozen blocks northwest of the market – an area called Belltown.
  • Pioneer Square is south of the market and home to clubs and sports bars. Beyond it is the International District and just beyond that are the two sports stadiums for the Seahawks, Mariners, and Sounders. All of this area is walkable from downtown and Pike Place Market.
  • The waterfront looks close to downtown and Pike Place Market but it’s cut off from the center by a freeway and plenty of steps. It’s not difficult to walk from the waterfront to downtown but it can still feel like a hassle. Much better to stay in downtown proper.
  • Getting to the Space Needle and Seattle Center can take a bit of a hike from some points downtown. To give your feet a rest, hop on the Seattle Monorail at Westlake Center – it’ll take you right there.
