About Seattle, WA Hotels
In keeping with its reputation for progressive eclecticism, the Seattle area offers a vast variety of interesting, highly unique lodging choices. As a cultured, international city, of course all of the big-name, luxury brand hotels are represented. Veer off the beaten path, and bed-and-breakfast options abound, but in addition to refurbished Victorians and rehabbed farmsteads, here in the Pacific Northwest they also take the form of Puget Sound houseboats, mountain cabins, even tree houses. It’s no secret around here that Seattle is in love with dogs, so it’s relatively simple to find pet-friendly places to stay with your pooch. Examples include the upscale Edgewater on Seattle’s waterfront and Hotel Andra in the hip Belltown neighborhood; more budget friendly is Knights Inn Sea Tac Airport, where they are as accommodating to your furry friend as they are to you. Travelers concerned with their carbon footprint will want to book at one of Seattle's growing number of eco-conscious, eco-friendly options. A prime example is Hyatt at Olive 8, an eco-friendly hotel in the heart of the theater district that is the city’s first LEED certified lodging. Centrally located downtown, boutique and business hotels earn high marks across the board, including the Travel + Leisure award-winning Alexis Hotel and Inn at the Market, which is on Conde Nast’s Gold List. Staying outside city limits for a slower pace? Luxury country inns fit the bill, notably Willows Lodge in Woodinville.
