Seattle's Hotels Near Safeco Field Let Guests Stay Close to the Action



Chances are, at some point during your stay here, you'll encounter diehard sports fans gladly willing to school you on the city's beloved teams. (Seahawks in the Superbowl... ring a bell?) If you're in luck, you can even catch a game yourself, no doubt a cultural Seattle experience in itself. Just south of the city in an area called SoDo, you'll find Safeco Field, a retractable-roof baseball stadium that's owned and operated by the Washington-King County Stadium Authority. This highly-trafficked city site, home to the Major League Baseball Seattle Mariners, has a seating capacity of 47,476 for spectators.

Since the inaugural game in 1999, Safeco Field has gained a reputation locally and nationally as a fantastic setting for baseball, thanks to its sweeping views of Seattle's downtown skyline plus breathtaking sunsets over Puget Sound. In addition, fans get excellent views of game action from all angles of the field.

Finding lodging near the city's sports zone is easy, since the stadiums are located within city limits–and a short walk, cab ride or lightrail journey from many of the city's best hotels. Whether you want to stay somewhere simple and low-key or funky and chic, this list will help you find a place that's comfortable, welcoming and, best of all, central.
