As Seattle's only true waterfront hotel, The Edgewater Hotel dazzles with its picture-perfect location overlooking Elliot Bay and the Olympic Mountains. In the past, this upscale venue located on Pier 67 hosted such rocking guests as Led Zeppelin and The Beatles, who famously fished out of the window of their water-level room.
At this rustic-meets-modern lodge – where roughly half of the hotel's 223 rooms offer stunning bay views – guests find in-room perks like gas fireplaces and custom luxury bedding.
The eco- and pet-friendly hotel consistently draws loyal fans with its Pacific Northwest-inspired decor and spectacular on-site dining at Six Seven, where patrons savor scrumptious fare inside or out.

Aside from sensational panoramic views in the light-filled dining room, Six Seven visitors can find teal booths, funky wood panel walls, subtly elegant chandeliers, a central stone fireplace and faux-industrial tree fixtures that bring a whimsical bent to a classy space.
With the aroma of fresh flowers, the background noise of chill club-lounge tunes and the sight of island-bound ferries gliding by outside, we'd say it's hard to find a more perfect Seattle setting in which to dine.
Breakfast highlights range from chicken and waffles, Dungeness crab Benedict and a to-die-for smoked salmon bagel platter to dishes featuring local goods like marionberry pancakes and Bob's Redmill Oatmeal, chock-full of goodies like apples and dates.
At lunchtime, you might relish the award-winning clam chowder, Mom's Chicken Salad, the Wagyu beef burger or perfectly cooked fish and chips.

After the sun sets, sink into outstanding options like Roast Penn Cove Mussels; breading-less crab cakes; cedar plank salmon; or the must-try gorgonzola-crusted filet mignon, adorned with forager mushroom ragout, asparagus, potato crisp and natural jus.
Guests will also enjoy a locally sourced wine list; look for more additions coming to the selection of whites in the near future, like varietals from nearby Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery, for example. Saturdays and Sundays at the restaurant usher in a bustling Brunch on the Bay, and an alluring happy hour proves a major waterside draw throughout the week, too.
Whether arriving from near or far, hotel guests enjoy amenities including a 24-hour fitness and business center, room service, laundry and dry cleaning services, plus complimentary bath goods. (The Edgewater makes for an ideal staycation destination, too!)
In our mind, Six Seven earns a perfect 10.
