Pike Place Market

Seattle is a destination most visitors to Washington would not dream of missing. Seattle Washington is the largest metropolitan city in the entire state, and has everything you might expect in a Pacific Northwest experience. Stunning views of snow-capped mountains, the salty sea and cooking fish aromas typical of a waterfront restaurant Seattle is well-known for, the upscale shopping and dining and the posh Seattle hotels make this city worth at least a few days of your visit to this state.


Visitors new to the city will find hundreds of lodging options in Seattle, ranging from the European style Mediterranean Inn of Lower Queen Anne, which has weekly and monthly rentals, to the historic Renaissance Madison hotel, with its stunning views of Puget Sound from the 25th floor of this Seattle hotel.

The Paramount is one of the most well-known Seattle hotels. Located right on Pine Street downtown, this is a great smaller boutique-style Seattle hotel with an award winning restaurant, the Dragonfish Café. Business travelers and tourists who simply want to be at the heart of it all frequently choose one of the 146 rooms in their search for a Seattle, Washington hotel.

The abundance of Seattle hotels offer you the flexibility to stay in whatever part of town you like. Whether you want to stay in a Seattle accommodation that is close to the Pike Place Market and Pier 54, the center of the bustling waterfront, or prefer to be further in downtown Seattle Washington, with easy access to restaurants and shopping, you can easily find the place you are looking for.

On the waterfront, which is easily reachable by walking through the public market, you can go to see the mummified figure and strange objects at the historic Ye Old Curiosity Shoppe, or taste real saltwater taffy at the candy shop. For the tastiest clam chowder in any restaurant Seattle has to offer, walk south a few piers to Ivar"s fish bar, which you can recognize from its bright blue awning.

If you're looking for a restaurant Seattle has so many dining options you won"t know where to begin. Venture beyond downtown and go up to the Phinney Ridge neighborhood and enjoy gourmet vegetarian cuisine at Carmelita"s. A Seattle Washington hotel can have some of the best restaurants around. Andaluca is hidden away in the Mayflower Hotel on Olive street downtown, and serves small dishes of sumptuous Mediterranean cuisine in a luxurious setting.

Your choice of Seattle accommodation can make the difference of your experience here. There are so many neighborhoods and each has its own distinctive feel. A Seattle hotel in Fremont will bring you closer to everyday life in one of the hippest neighborhoods in Seattle. Cross the Alaskan Way viaduct and head over to West Seattle. The junction has a cool record store/diner called Easy Street that is packed every Sunday morning, and is the type of unique restaurant Seattle is known for.

Whether you decide to spend an exciting weekend at your choice on a whirlwind tour hitting top spots such as the Space Needle or the ferry and the historic waterfront and staying at the finest Seattle accommodation, or spend a week or more getting into the groove of the city by renting a furnished apartment in a Seattle Washington hotel, you are going to have a really unique experience that will make you want to come back and visit again.
