Say goodbye to your sea legs, and get ready to enjoy the city's many delightful lodging options. Seattle's two main cruise ports are both very close to the thriving downtown area (one near Belltown, the other closer to Magnolia), meaning that hotel choices are plentiful. Cruise passengers can either walk to nearby hotels or take a quick taxi/bus ride to convenient, central accommodations. Lodging in this city can mean either modern and posh or traditional and no-frills, depending on your tastes. Some hotels are ideal for families, while others even welcome four-legged friends. Whether you're looking for a spot with unique, city-specific history, like the Edgewater Hotel where the Beatles once stayed (seeking refuge from enthusiastic fans) or a venue with guaranteed class (like the W Hotel), you will no doubt find a pleasant place to call home for a short while. Since Seattle's tourist scene ramps up in summer months (especially from July through September), it's always a good idea to book your accommodations as well in advance as is possible. Downtown hotels not only offer easy access to Seattle's lovely waterfront area and seafood-theme eateries, but also to must-see downtown sights from Pike Place to the Seattle Art Museum.
