Seattle boasts one of the most iconic skylines in the United States, thanks largely to the Space Needle, which gives the city an almost futuristic look amid the backdrop of Mt. Rainier. Downtown Seattle also happens to be where a lot of the action is for travelers, whether you visit Pike Place Market or the Experience Music Project, catch a Seahawks or Mariners game or explore neighborhoods like Capitol Hill or Belltown. The best way to explore everything the proverbial Emerald City has to offer is to stay in a downtown Seattle hotel.

Renaissance Seattle – A Marriott Family Hotel

You’ll feel re-born the moment you check in at Renaissance Seattle – A Marriott Family Hotel – the views of downtown, the Puget Sound and Mt. Rainier (depending on which room you get) are absolutely transcendental! Enjoy luxurious amenities like down comforters, flat-screen TVs and complimentary wireless Internet in the rooms, walk to Safeco Fields and the historic Seattle Public Library or host an event in the world-class exhibition space, located on the 28th floor.

Motif Seattle

Motif Seattle draws inspiration from Seattle’s independent fashion scene, so no matter which of the 300+ rooms and suites you book, you’ll enjoy a unique experience. From idiosyncratic design quirks, to all-granite bathrooms, to flat screen LCD TVs boasting the popular DirectTV service, your Seattle experience begins before you even leave your room. Nearby attractions include Seattle Art Museum, Century Link Field and the Space Needle.

Fairmont Olympic Hotel

“Lush” is a word you could use to describe the guest rooms at Fairmont Olympic Hotel, a Seattle hotel whose rooms bloom with floral prints, luxurious crown molding and meticulously upholstered furniture. While you’re not enjoying your pricless view of Seattle, take advantage of high-speed Internet access, savor fresh oysters at Shuckers Restaurant, which is located right on the property or enjoy a greater selection of seafood at nearby Pike Place Market.

Hotel Monaco Seattle – A Kimpton Hotel

Seattle’s about as far away as you can get from Monte Carlo, geographically, but the luxurious trimmings on offer at Hotel Monaco Seattle – A Kimpton Hotel will make you feel like you’re in the “real” Monaco. Whether you relax in beds decked out with Italian linens, marvel at the beautiful tiled bathtub or host an important business meeting in the hotel’s 6,000 feet of event space, you’ll be hard pressed to find any detail overlooked, to say nothing of Hotel Monaco Seattle’s stunning downtown location.

Sheraton Seattle Hotel

Sheraton Seattle Hotel is just steps from the Seattle Convention Center, which makes it an obvious choice for doing business. Rooms here feature Sheraton’s famous “Sweet Sleeper” pillowtop-mattress beds, while other in-room amenities include minibars, flat-screen TVs and free property-wide Wi-Fi. Whether you come to Seattle for business or pleasure, you’ll be happy to know that Sheraton Seattle Hotel is pet friendly, which means both you and your best friend can enjoy the best Seattle has to offer.
